Pete Carroll says Seahawks ready to face 49ers

Positive Pete was up to his old tricks during his weekly media press conference Wednesday afternoon. The Seattle Seahawks head man was all about moving forward and barely able to contain himself when speaking about the Seahawks home opener against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday afternoon ( 1:25 p.m. PT)  at CenturyLink Field.

If the  Seahawks are in need of a feel good win that will get them back on the winning track the San Franciso 49ers are the perfect teams. The Seahawks will face the 49ers for the 37th time with the Seahawks holding a comfortable 21 -15 series record.

Even more impressive is the fact that the Seahawks have won the last six games between the two teams.  The Seahawks will also be looking to extend their NFL leading home-opener winning streak to nine game


If the Seahawks are to continue their ways against 49ers they will have to establish a run game after producing just  90 yards rushing against the Green Bay Packers. Quarterback Russell  Wilson 40 of the 90 yards. While Wilson is a dual threat in his ability to run and pass the ball you want his runs to be designed plays rather than run for you life scrambles.

Wilson had little time to run or pass against the Packers pointing to the need for a strong showing from the teams offensive line.  Offensive line play was a topic Carroll said he was disappointed he was talking about after the Green Bay game. The question is will the offensive line play be a topic of discussion Sunday after the  49ers game. The is yes, the question is whether will it be a positive or negative discussion.  If you ask Pete you know what he will say.
