SF and Seattle are reflections of each other, albeit in a dirty mirror. Kinda like one you'd find if you drunkenly stumbled into a strip club's dressing room: you're immersed in darkness and bleary-eyed and blinking through the boob glitter you've accumulated on your eyelashes over the night's events. Anyway:
SF is 13th in scoring. Seattle is 15th.
SF is 2nd in rushing offense. Seattle is 4th.
Both have young, dynamic QBs and lean on their respective defenses, who are #1 overall for SF and #2 overall for Seattle.
Two of NE's losses this season have come against the NFCW.
I think SF can help a brotha out. They'd better, considering the fact they gave us Pelosi.
