49ers matchups to watch in Week 2 versus Seahawks

49ers matchups to watch in Week 2 versus Seahawks

Rawls sat out the Seahawks Week 1 loss at Green Bay with a high ankle sprain.

"Violence", Cable told reporters Wednesday.

"It's a good problem to have, " said offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, proving equally hard to pin down about how it will all come together. Seattle could only muster up 225 yards of total offense through the entire game, which is the fewest number of yards they have produced in the last three seasons.

Strongside linebacker Terence Garvin (shoulder), listed as doubtful, did not practice Friday and is "a little further away" from returning than his teammates.

Likely to take his place at strongside linebacker is Michael Wilhoite, a former 49er who signed with Seattle as a free agent in the offseason but has yet to play in either the preseason or regular season due to a calf injury. The lack of time between plays can also force defenses into more vanilla looks that are easier for them to call and communicate on the fly. And I've seen him in tough situations - they've got some players with personalities up there and I've seen him handle those, and handle them in a way that I really respect. "He's been such a fun player to watch". "He just won't accept it, and there's always been people that heal better than others and we'll see how this works out".

Seattle DE Cliff Avril has 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in his past five home games vs. the 49ers.

That remains below the United States federal government's 35% rate, but it's higher than what Trump suggested in his tweet . Trump has said that his goal is a 15 percent corporate rate - a goal he repeated Wednesday.

Seattle coaches and Lane himself have protested there was no punch. But the Seahawks say they know Shanahan's offense can create big plays if they allow themselves to get confused by any of the array of motions and formations the 49ers are sure to throw at them.

These two teams have a history of playing tight, physical games and the last meeting was decided by just two points.

"I just like to have a lot of consistent pressure", Richardson said. "It's never happened here", Richard said.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll would not detail exactly what the National Football League told him this week only to somewhat coyly say he agreed with those on TV such as former National Football League vice president of officiating Mike Pereria who said he did not think it was a good call.

Unfortunately for the 49ers, if things go according to how the odds think they will, they could be in for a rough day in Seattle on Sunday afternoon.
