49ers should be leery of little-known Seahawks rookie running back

Seattle Seahawks expect RB Thomas Rawls to bring 'violence' in his return

Pete Carroll talked to 49ers GM, ex-Fox Sports analyst John Lynch more than he may wish he had

It can tire opposing defensive linemen who are used to rotating in and out of the game but don't have a chance to do that with the offense getting to the line of scrimmage quickly.

Whether Sherman will miss his first game of his career or not, the Seahawks are confident in their depth at corner.

Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane was not fined for his actions which led to an ejection last Sunday at Green Bay.

PREDICTION: The rebuilding 49ers are no match for the Super Bowl-contending Seahawks, although Seattle's offensive line could make it interesting. "You've got to stand up to the bully".

The Buffalo Bills are a seven-point underdog to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. "I have no doubts that we will be able to do that".

"I don't think I can complement them enough", San Francisco QB Brian Hoyer said. 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. (Intensity) is definitely big versus Seattle but it's big versus any team.

"We just need to keep doing it", coach Pete Carroll said this week.

Catalan mayors support holding independence vote

Trump continues to push for bipartisan tax overhaul
The Tax Policy Center, a joint effort of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, estimates that the tax cuts Mr. Trump outlined in broad detail this spring would increase the deficit by $7.2 trillion over the first decade.

"I felt like we could have dominated".

"One thing that I probably learned from him is just that these season's are grinds", Lynch answered. He joined 710 ESPN Seattle's John Clayton Friday to talk about how he is adapting to the Seahawks locker room, how he describes his own pass-rush style, and why he thinks sacks aren't always the most important stat.

Instead, he and Shanahan blamed the lopsided 23-3 outcome on errors. Griffin allowed six competitions, for 53 yards and broke up two passes. But there should be no doubt that Kaepernick, were he still with San Francisco, would be by far the most talented quarterback on the roster. Only left tackle Joe Staley and linebacker NaVorro Bowman started the team's last win in Seattle, which came on December 24, 2011.

Carroll certainly didn't expect that sharing those kinds of details could come back to have an adverse effect someday - except when Lynch took the job as the general manager of Seattle's division rival, the San Francisco 49ers. Goodwin's Buffalo Bills squad lost 31-25 there last season.

Even though the drive stalled after starting with three consecutive completions, it was about as efficient as Seattle's offense looked all afternoon, which has led to the obvious question of whether or not the Seahawks will go to back to that well if their offense continues to struggle. "Everybody knows those plays, they're comfortable with them".

Celek is one of several 49ers whose season ended with an injury - in his case an ankle injury - in Seattle.

Lynch said his young team has to look at the Seahawks noisy, frenetic atmosphere and its hyper-aggressive style of play as an opportunity.
