Seahawks pass game in a funk

This is my Wednesday column on the Seahawks’ passing game. Don’t blame Russell Wilson. People say the Seahawks’ passing game is spiraling counter-clockwise down the toilet because Wilson is in a slump. No. It might be more accurate to say that Darrell Bevell, the Seahawks’ offensive coordinator, is in a slump. “His passing game appears […]

Week 2 when the 49ers played the Seahawks in Seattle, Russell Wilson completed just eight passes and his passer rating was an abysmal 63.9. But the 49ers defense allowed 104 rushing yards and a touchdown on 14 read-option runs.

49ers 19, Seahawks 17: Grades

SAN FRANCISCO – Here are my grades for the 49ers’ 19-17 win over the Seahawks. KAEPERNICK: D+. He was pretty good in the first half and awful for most of the second half until his 8-yard run to seal the win on third-and-7 at the end of the fourth quarter. That’s why I give him […]

SANTA CLARA — Vic Fangio spoke in the media tent Thursday afternoon.

Basically, the big part of their success is they’re balanced. […]

Wilson’s progress at QB puts him way ahead of Kaepernick

Here is my Wednesday column explaining why Russell Wilson is better than Colin Kaepernick. SANTA CLARA – You have to admit, Russell Wilson looked like a miniature combination of Joe Montana and Steve Young Monday night against the Saints – Montana’s cool demeanor and precision from the pocket, Young’s explosive ability to make plays on […]

Rich Gannon says the 49ers have “got to be able to attack underneath” the Seahawks D

Rich Gannon was interviewed Tuesday about the upcoming 49ers-Seahawks game. Here is a transcript. Q: How can the 49ers beat the Seahawks on Sunday? GANNON: They’ve got to do a number of things. I’ve been surprised, I thought these guys were the best offensive line in football last year. Even when they were healthy this […]

Here is my Tuesday column on Kaepernick’s season of regression. The following play epitomizes how inept the 49ers’ offense has become: Eight minutes left in the second quarter against the Saints. Play No. 2 of drive No. 6 for the Niners. Colin Kaepernick lines up under center and waves his left arm to silently signal […]
