Seahawks thump 49ers, taking another big step forward in playoff race

Sherman has responded well post-Achilles injury this season despite having a tough outing covering Mike Evans and the rest of the Buccaneers wide receiving corps last week.

"You just expect that after you've done so much for a franchise that they wouldn't cut you while you're hurt", Sherman told reporters Thursday, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "Their running game was really effective, and they let him get to his spots and they kept the game plan simple".

Sherman downplayed the significance of his return to his old stomping grounds, where he helped establish the famed Legion of Boom secondary that carried the Seahawks to great success, calling it just another game on the schedule.

In the 49ers 43-16 loss to the Seahawks, opposing quarterback Russell Wilson only completed 11 passes of his 17 attempts for 185 yards. Lockett took the opening kickoff back 85 yards, and on the very next play, Rashaad Penny ran in a 20-yard touchdown to put the Seahawks ahead 27-3.

Tyler Lockett played the part of former 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree, who Sherman was defending that January 19, 2014, game before securing the Seahawks' their trip to the Super Bowl against the Broncos.

One of the big gains, a 34-yard catch by Mike Evans, came on a broken play that Jameis Winston extended by scrambling. Sherman singled out Wilson's least impressive data point from a blowout victory in which Wilson threw four touchdown passes and finished with a passer rating of 140.9.

"I've seen him throw five picks in a game", Sherman said. "He's my brother.to see him on the opposite side in the other jersey he looks ugly in was cool". "You understand that he can be defended, so you go out there and give it your best shot".

The Seahawks' celebration after their first score, a four-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Jaron Brown in the first quarter, harkened back to the NFC championship in 2014 when Sherman tipped the game-sealing interception to Smith. against the 49ers. Just how many plays he made.

As far as Sherman's digs go, this ranks among the more subtle.

He then said he did not know when the injury had started, or whether Ozil was at the ground for the match. We didn't win that one but today we won against a good team and showed a very good performance.
