Instant analysis of the Seahawks 12-9 win over the 49ers

Tight end Jimmy Graham had just three catches for eight yards in the Seahawks season opener

He wanted to know why and what were you thinking.

"They were very poised and understood the situation", Carroll said of the men up front. He was adding up his background and reservoir of information at the time. How fast does he get to the ball?

Lynch may someday be able to use some of Carroll's wisdom in reconstructing the 49ers.

Excellent safety play has always been a staple of Pete Carroll defenses, and this Sunday will be no different.

In the week one loss to the Carolina Panthers, the 49ers run defense was superb, while the pass defense was subpar. Then again, Seattle is guaranteeing Lacy almost $2.9 million this season, so there wouldn't be much financial incentive to do so. We'll see how he is tomorrow all the way to game day, but he looked really good.

Carroll said Sherman "felt" the injury during the Green Bay game. This year has already seen him run more, as he ran twice for 40 yards in Week 1 and 12 times for 34 yards Sunday against the 49ers.

Winning the battle at the line of scrimmage, the 49ers allowed a total of 131 yards on the ground on 37 attempts from Seattle running backs forcing an average of only 3.5 yards per carry.

That's the hope, anyway, that it was just one of those days against a good team on the road, an offense with some new parts still needing to find itself.

"Everyone has to be on the same page on offense for every play to work. The whole passing game did", Shanahan said.

Tank Carradine and Arik Armstead also had sacks for San Francisco. He committed two turnovers, threw for just 193 yards and led only one scoring drive in a 23-3 loss to Carolina. The Niners never got the chance to run another play.

Unacceptable for pilots to put Air Berlin fate at risk - minister
Air Berlin announced on Monday that it would end its flights to the Caribbean from Düsseldorf beginning September 24. In response, Air Berlin CEO Thomas Winkelmann accused pilots of "playing with fire".

"The bigger task is their defense. But in this matchup with the guys that were healthy and all that, this was the way we had to go". Kyle Shanahan seemed more interested in getting the ball to Marquise Goodwin, who led the offense with six targets.

With running back Thomas Rawls expected to return to the field Sunday, the Seahawks will look to improve on establishing the run after last week's performance.

"By the end of the game, it's all about toughness and who's going to fight longer", Seahawks center Justin Britt said of Seattle's game-clinching drive.

INJURIES: 49ers - Out: linebacker Reuben Foster (ankle); Questionable: safety Jimmie Ward (hamstring); Seahawks - Doubtful: linebacker Terence Garvin (shoulder); Questionable: cornerback Richard Sherman (hamstring).

The defense kept the Hawks in the game, keeping San Francisco out of the end zone all game.

That ended up being the 49ers' final offensive play.

Exit Rawls, enter Carson, who has overcome long odds to claim the No. 1 spot in the Seattle backfield.

"We'll see how that fits together", Carroll said.

HOME COOKIN': Seattle has won the past six meetings against the 49ers in Seattle. Armstrong also committed an egregious penalty when he hit Seahawks wide receiver Paul Richardson out of bounds. Foster was a unanimous All-American selection past year at the University of Alabama and the 2016 Butkus Award victor as the best collegiate linebacker, and the 49ers were thrilled to get him in the 2017 NFL Draft.
