Seahawks CB has already started the taunting

Its that time of year again, We are just days away from the San Francisco 49ers first trip to Seattle since last year's NFC Championship game.

The game that saw the Seattle Seahawks progress to Super Bowl XLVIII to take on the Denver Broncos is mostly remembered for its final moments.

The Seahawks won the game 23-17 but it was actually San Francisco's last offensive drive that caused the controversy.

With the 49ers down by six, they moved the ball down field to try and win the game and with 30 seconds left, one of the biggest moments of the season happened.

49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick attempted what would have been the game winning pass to Michael Crabtree in the endzone.


The pass was deflected away by Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman and intercepted by Malcolm Smith to give Seattle the win.

Of course Sherman's post match interview in which he sends a harsh message to Crabtree has been viewed and parodied many times.

Ahead of the two players' collision in Seattle again, Sherman has been his usual humble self and sent a pre-match blow to Crabtree.

There is now a shirt released immortalising the moment in the blue and green of the Seahawks with an interesting caption underneath.

"Here's a tip, don't test the best." - The caption on Sherman's new shirt

To add to the insult sent to Crabtree and the 49ers, the shirt is also discounted to try and get them filling CenturyLink Field when the two meet on Sunday.

The same again?

Sherman will undoubtedly be in favour of playing the 49ers given the last two games he has faced Kaepernick and his men, he has had memorable games.

Other than last years NFC Championship game, the two sides met in San Francisco on Thanksgiving two weeks ago.

Sherman again had a memorable game that night as he got two interceptions which led the Seahawks to an easy 19-3 victory.

With the Seahawks finally beginning to look like the team they were last year when they won their first ever Super Bowl and the 49ers looking less and less like the team we have come to know, this one already appears to be a forgone conclusion.

A win for the Seahawks could see them tie the Arizona Cardinals at the top of the NFC West on 10-4 depending on how the Cardinals game with the St Louis Rams goes tonight.

Should the Seahawks tie the Cardinals however, the clash between the two teams in two weeks will then be viewed as the battle for the division and will surely be worthy of its Sunday night football slot.
