Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers rivalry inflamed

Published Add your comment

Pete Carroll just can't help himself. Despite it being the off-season, the Seattle Seahawks head coach never backs down from any attempt that he can find to have a go at the San Francisco 49ers and his opposite number Jim Harbaugh.

The latest bear-baiting in this great rivalry comes from Carroll, who according to the Seattle Times, said at an event for Seahawks fans that Coach Harbaugh is “a great coach and we love beating him.”

Unfortunately, we all will have to wait until Thanksgiving to see Carroll and Harbaugh go at it again when the Seahawks and 49ers meet in Week 13, which is about 5 months away.

The games between these two sides have become some of the most fiercest in the NFL and you could really tell it in the NFC Championship game earlier in the year that the Seahawks won.

The players really do not like each other, with Richard Sherman's now legendary post game interview with Erin Andrews where he called 49ers man Michael Crabtree a 'sorry receiver' after breaking up a play that won Seattle the game and sent them to the SuperBowl. 

If Harbaugh and his charges needed any more motivation to get one over their foes then Carroll has just given it to them on a plate.
