Richard Sherman says Frank Clark’s comments “didn’t bother me at all”

Friday, December 14th, 2018

The Seahawks and 49ers will meet for the second time in three weeks this Sunday in Santa Clara with another reunion on deck for Richard Sherman and his former team. Prior to their first meeting two weeks ago, Sherman said he didn’t have much of a relationship with his former quarterback, Russell Wilson, was irked by his how he was jettisoned by the franchise while injured, and referred to the Seahawks as a “middle of the road” team. Meanwhile, Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark said following the Vikings win on Monday night that he didn’t make too much of Sherman’s comments, but made it clear that they’re not looking backward as a unit.

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Baldwin was held out of Monday’s game due to a hip issue that flared up following the team’s win over the San Francisco 49ers the previous week. Baldwin played 54 of 58 offensive snaps against the 49ers but was unable to practice all last week before being deemed inactive against the Vikings. With Baldwin out, Russell Wilson was held to the fewest passing yards and lowest passer rating of any game in his seven-year career as Seahawks starting quarterback by Minnesota.

Richard Sherman downplays war of words with Seahawks

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

San Francisco cornerback Richard Sherman won't get as emotional about playing against Seattle this week as he did when the 49ers and Seahawks met two weeks ago.

Sherman is so calm and cool this time around that he even smiled and chuckled quietly when asked about critical comments made about him by former Seahawks teammate Frank Clark following Seattle's 21-7 win over Minnesota on Monday.

Once a weakness, offensive line now strength for Seahawks

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Jordan Simmons was basically an unknown when the Seattle Seahawks claimed him off waivers from the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 2. After several seasons of Seattle's offensive line being a major problem, it's become a solid position group that is clearly not the weakness it's been in the past. ''It's the whole unit working together as one,'' Solari said.

Pete Carroll doesn’t dispute Frank Clark’s assessment of an extended Super Bowl XLIX hangover

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Immediately after the Seahawks’ decision to throw the ball at the goal line resulted in a Super Bowl loss instead of a Super Bowl win, it became obvious that multiple Seahawks players would have a hard time getting over it. Three years later, the Seahawks have finally cleared out anyone who couldn’t forget about the decision that kept Seattle from launching a bona fide football dynasty. Defensive end Frank Clark, who arrived after Super Bowl XLIX, said after Monday’s win over the Vikings that “we’ve had this spirit over us, that Super Bowl lingering from 2015,” and that “I feel like for the longest [time] we had that cloud over us, like people wouldn’t get over it.

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

Playing twice in a three-week span is unusual, but the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers will go at it again Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn't putting too much stock in what happened in Seattle's 43-16 win in the first meeting, noting that San Francisco (3-10) played well in a 20-14 victory over the Denver Broncos last week. The Seahawks (8-5) picked up a big win at home on Monday night to bolster their NFC wild-card position, handling the Minnesota Vikings 21-7.

Kyle Shanahan wants $25K fine lifted, NFL officials to use common sense

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

Kyle Shanahan wants $25K fine lifted, NFL officials to use common sense originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com SANTA CLARA -- 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he'll appeal his $25,000 NFL fine for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he drew during the third quarter of the team's Week 13 matchup with the Seahawks in Seattle. Shanahan's outburst occurred after Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw the shoe that 49ers linebacker Fred Warner had lost on the field during the previous play. The Seahawks went into hurry-up offense and snapped the ball before the 49ers could field a substitution, so they were called offside.
