Seahawks vs 49ers: Talking points the announcers won’t beat into the ground about this “rivalry”

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Jets blog Gang Green Nation (see you next week) did a post about “Talking points the announcers will beat into the ground” during their game vs the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. It was a good idea that was echoed by the San Francisco 49ers blog Niners Nation regarding their game against the Seattle Seahawks. Since David Fucillo did a fine job of noting the talking points of the game, here are some you won’t hear:

  • Richard Sherman vs Michael Crab-
  • Russell Wilson vs Colin Kaep-
  • The Seahawks defense vs Frank Go-
  • The 49ers defense vs Marshawn Lyn-
  • Pete Carroll vs Jim Harba-
  • The best rivalry in the NF-

A lot has changed in the last two years. Most of that change has happened with the 49ers, but with both teams at 1-1, and Chip Kelly now running the show in San Francisco, it’s too soon to know where both teams will stand at the end of 2016. It’s probably not too soon to say that the rivalry is on hiatus.
