Seahawks thump 49ers, taking another big step forward in playoff race

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman warms up before an NFL football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tampa Fla. Sherman will see his former team up close on Sunday when the San Fra

Richard Sherman: I don't have a relationship with Russell Wilson

"You expect after you've done so much for a franchise, they wouldn't cut you while you're hurt", Sherman said Thursday as he prepares to return to Seattle for the first time this weekend as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.

But they took it to a whole new level Sunday when they channeled their inner Richard Sherman, who's now with the 49ers, by doing this after Tyler Lockett's 52-yard TD reception against Sherman's new team.

Wilson and Sherman played together on the Seahawks team that won Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014 and nearly won another the following year.

"I've also seen him throw five picks in the game, so you see what he's capable of on both sides of it", Sherman said.

That made Pettis the first 49er to score two touchdowns in a game against the Seahawks since Shaun Draughn in the final game of the 2016 season. "It's just unfortunate that we didn't play as well as we could have". Tampa Bay was able to limit Nick Mullens to 221 passing yards as the 49ers did not do a good enough job of finishing drives.

"Once it's all said and done and everybody who is playing is done playing, people will be more disappointed of what could have been with such a talented group of players", Sherman said.

Wagner and Sherman spoke about the play after the game was over.

After all that, the Seahawks still had one more highlight left in them.

"From a humanistic standpoint it's very hard to separate those emotions", Baldwin said. "I think he threw for like 160, 170".

The San Francisco 49ers' record sits at 2-9 right now.

That should come as no surprise after a summer report from Sports Illustrated characterized Russell as not having much of a relationship with any of his teammates, with many believing he was the recipient of special treatment from the coaching staff.

It's not that the numbers lie when it comes to Wilson, but that you have to know which ones to look at.
