Just as dumb criminals make dumb cops, bad rivals make for bad football teams. In that respect the Seattle Seahawks are lucky to have one of the best teams in the NFL as their division rivals. The 49ers have made the NFC Championship three years running and there’s no reason to believe they can’t again in 2014.
Seattle may be younger and better prepared to compete long term but for now the Niners are still the biggest obstacle to the Lombardi trophy.
This video celebrates the rivalry with a 30 seconds to Mars song.
I think we’re destined to do this forever.
