It probably won't matter as SF will probably win.

I agree!!! The Seahawks had a hard time putting pressure on Ryan. I don't think that will be a problem for the Niners this weekend!!!

The players now days trash talk and have no class.Back in the 50's and 60's the players would have kicked the royal poop out these players.

I blame the 24 hour news cycle for that. I imagine teams have been trash talking for as long as you've been a fan - we just didn't know about it.

Even if Abraham can play, he won't enjoy chasing Kaepernick around on a bum ankle.
