The 49er's knew the Seahawks were under new management, but also knew that Lamar was no rookie on the field / sideline. Seattle was able to run the ball thoroughly and effectively against the 49ers defense. They were able to get downfield after making the 9ers punt on their 1st possession with some nice runs by Lynch and some precise throws by the QB. 49ers settled for two 1st half fg's. The Seahawks did their thing on 3rd downs to extend drives throughout the game. Our defense was finally able to make a play against Lynch by making him fumble when it seemed like the Seahawks were on their way to at the least put 3 points on the board...the fumble by Lynch may have been the difference maker in this one! Along with 14 4th qtr. points.. GG Lamar..and welcome to the NFC West!!!
