After an anemic first half that saw the San Francisco 49ers head into the locker room with a 16-0 lead, the Seahawks gradually clawed their way back to within two, 19-17... before two late touchdowns—on a kickoff return and punt return—put the game away for San Francisco.
Ouch. Apparently, the Seahawks' special teams are "special" in that they ride the short bus.
As for Tarvaris Jackson, the 'Hawks' quarterback of the future, he had an okay day—nothing spectacular, nothing horrendous—completing 21 of 37 attempts for 197 yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception and a rather pedestrian 78.3 quarterback rating.
And in case you're wondering, former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, for whom the Seahawks declined to trade in the off-season, went 18 of 27 for 309 yards, 2 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and a shiny 130.0 quarterback rating. More importantly, he led the rival Arizona Cardinals to a come-from-behind 28-21 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
No reason for fans to worry yet. It's just one game. But it's one game in which the Seahawks didn't look like playoff contenders... that is, assuming it'll require a winning record to capture the NFC West this season.
