Thanks to Niners coach Mike Nolan for opting for that field goal before the half. That made my 24-20 prediction technically possible. It's a small technicality at this point unless the Seahawks overcome a brutal first half. The 49ers had a chance to win this thing, to be sure, but it was tough to envision a 20-0 lead at halftime. I'm sure we'll hear about Trent Dilfer helping the 49ers' game plan, but as some of the guys here in the press box have asked, how about making some tackles? Frank Gore is running over, around and through this defense. Seattle's offense keeps turning the ball over, even when it makes a good play (see Jerramy Stevens' 19-yard catch-and-fumble shortly before the half). This will be an interesting second half to watch.
