Players, coaches and the front office must maintain a healthy respect for every opponent, or risk defeat, ruin and humiliation.
As a fan, however, I can tell you how I really feel about the 49ers: I look upon them with sneering, absolute contempt. Nothing about them frightens me in the slightest, and I look forward to the annual ritualistic Qwest Field sacrifice of the lowly Niners this Sunday. Check the AVERAGE score of SF's last four visits to Qwest:
Seahawks 28, 49ers 7
I don't care if Steve Raible has to suit up at flanker... Seattle is going to burninate the Niners this Sunday. They are coached by a fraud in a Reebok suit, and with each pathetic loss they piss all over thier franchise's proud history.
I'm not that concerned about facing a team that has only won 25 of its last 85 games, particularly one led by a journeyman QB making his first start at Qwest Field. I'll let Mr. T sum this one up...
