The Tape: Seahawks @ 49ers: Is it Halloween? No!

Seattle 20 - San Francisco 6

2-12-SF 43 (2:00)


Seattle breaks 2 WR, TE, split backs. San Francisco in a 3-4, corners walked close, outside linebackers showing blitz.


Niners run a Man Cover-1, blitzing both outside linebackers. Sean Locklear picks up Parys Haralson. Manny Lawson surges into the backfield. Julius Jones engages. Leonard Weaver begins an oh-so-beautiful angle route.Patrick Willis fakes an inside blitz and cuts out to attempt man cover on Weaver.


Jones is run over by Lawson in an uncharacteristic blown block. Wallace, sensing pressure, finds his outlet receiver: Leonard Weaver. Weaver plants, explodes out of his cut and leaves Willis chasing air. Weaver rips past Michael Lewis and Takeo Spikes, and behind the excellent block of Koren Robinson for the score. All to the tune of the wonderfully canned, sublimely inappropriate play-by-play of Ron Pitts: "Second and twelve Seattle. Throw inside. Weaver with the green shoes. And look at those green shoes go! Is it Halloween? No. It's touchdown Seattle."
