To say that the Seahawks were motivated for this game would be an understatement. The last 3 games going back to Madden 10's OMFL season resulted in shut outs put up by Dritch. Coach Bates knows what Dritch likes to do and until today, he wasn't able to do anything to stop it. The story of the game was turnovers. The 49ers had 6, and the Seahawks had none. 49ers play a defense that eliminates the run and dares you to pass and this game, Snead did. On a play in the 2nd quarter, Snead noticed rookie Emmanuel Sanders was being covered 1-1 with no safety over the top, so he hot routed him to a streak. This adjustment worked beautifully and Sanders scored on a perfectly thrown bomb from Snead. Going into the half the score was 13-3. In the 2nd half we would see the 49ers move the ball more effectively but they also continued to shoot themselves in the foot with turnovers. 2nd half we also saw the game go away from Snead a little bit as the 49ers defense was intimidating him so 4th quarter Coach Bates elected to run the ball more. After 2 straight 3 and outs running straight into teeth of 49ers defense, Coach Bates called a play action pass to Golden Tate that broke the back of the 49ers defense as he went in for a 92 yard TD. Seahawks have long been out of playoff race but this win was a long time coming for this Seahawks team. Game ball goes to Jevan Snead who was 11-20 for 202 yards and 2 TDs. Also of note...Earl Thomas' rookie season is now over as he went down with a partial PCL tear sometime in the 3rd quarter.
