Basic point I'm trying to make:
1. Strong defense + power running teams throughout history tend to have the advantage of generally keeping scores close and grinding out wins.
2. The disadvantage historically is that once these types of teams happen to be blown out by an opposing offense, they lose horribly, as they are not built to score in bunches in a short amount of time.
3. Seems scary that both the Seahawks and the 49ers appear to have all the strengths of the aforementioned teams, but without any of the associated weaknesses or drawbacks.
4. The Seahawks against the Falcons, and the 49ers against the Ravens, show that both teams are able to come back from a 3 score + deficit against Super Bowl caliber opponents and essentially make it so that no lead opposing teams have on the Seahawks or 49ers is safe.
I agree, i just believe the only difference between these comebacks are that the 49ers offense is more "dynamic" then you can say compared to the Seahawks as we are a more "execution" in our style of play.
Kaepernick is more of a gunslinger moving around type of QB, with a strong arm, athletic.
Wilson is more a execution, accurate throws, moves around when he knew to, athletic.
The only thing that they are any similar is there athleticism. They can make "plays" with there arms or legs.
Because of these 2 QB's, these two teams actually have the ability to come back in the game to win, regardless of who are the play makers, because these QB are unique in their own style and have a knack to make those crazy throws. It all comes down to the defense of both teams, which one is more suitable to bend and not break, that can hold the opponents to a lower score so that these offense can win.
I believe the Seahawks defense has a better ability to bend but not break, even though the Atlantic game was sad, along with many other games... But when i watch these 49ers comeback, most are just dumb mistakes from the other team, or just crazy shit happening... Matt Ryans like several int late in the game. like seriously. Then Ray Rice with the fumbles, etc. But, because Kaepernick with his ability to just outrun DB for the endzone is crazy. Seahawks defense is big in the DB area for harder windows for QB to link up with the WR, Faster LB to keep up with the TE, QB, RB and WR sometimes, and big linemen to stop the run with LBers speed to passrush as well, good combination to stop most teams unless they are an offense jaugernaut like the Falcons, Patriots, Packers, who gave the Seahawks a tough time, but Wilson executing likewise makes those plays with nice throws and with poise.
But we will get to find out six times a year who is the champ of the NFC West, because Pete knows, with Harbaugh, Fisher, and now Bruce Arian(even though he now has to prove himself worthy to be with the top dawgs now), probably the winner of the West will probably be the NFC Champs every year from now on i believe, but we'll find out.
