Anyone old enough to remember the "making everything better" commercial from BASF? Shannon, I know you are. If not, here it is:
The Niners play the game like the Seahawks want to play it, but only better. Can we sprinkle some BASF on the Hawks before games next year?
As I wrote when the two teams met in week 16, both were statistically close in all areas—except the Niners were nominally ahead of the Hawks in every area. These small margins take a team from 7-9 to 13-3. Pete Carroll can use his bay-area rival as a model for the team he is trying to build. It will be interesting to see how well San Francisco is built for the playoffs.
