A pretty solid win for the Seahawks. As for the TV coverage, Kenny Albert and Moose Johnston weren't too bad at all, I could do without Tony Siragusa's ramblings. But you can really tell that Moose studies up before he does a game. His analysis was good.

The 49ers' local newspaper coverage ...
Never miss a local story.
In the San Francisco Chronicle the game story by beat writer John Crumpacker ran with the headline "Missing in Action." Columnist Ray Ratto was not impressed with the Niners. Fellow columnist Nancy Gay believes the"NFC West balance of power still stilts toward the Seahawks." Here's the game notebook with a small item about Matt Hasselbeck consoling Trent Dilfer.
In the San Jose Mercury News, the game story ran with headline "For 49ers, separation and anxiety". Columnist Tim Kawakami sees doom ahead for the Niners. Colmunist Mark Purdy doesn't believe the Niners offensive woes weren't just because of Alex Smith's injury. Here's a story about Julian Peterson tormenting his old team. And here's the game notebook focusing on the offensive line's ineptness.
From the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, this columnist can see the Niners offense is flawed. Duh. The headline for the game story used the phrase "reality check." It looks as though Alex Smith is out for at least a week, perhaps more.
