The 49ers head into the fourth quarter leading the Seattle Seahawks 10-6. It has been an incredibly ugly game, but the offense finally got things going in the third quarter. After a Delanie Walker touchdown, Dashon Goldson picked off Russell Wilson, and the 49ers have a chance to get some insurance points. I think we can say the black and blue division might be the NFC right now.

We take a look at the 49ers touchdown drive, and what it could mean for the offense when they come back out on the field later in the game against the Seahawks.

Well, this has certainly been a fairly hideous game. The 49ers trail 6-3 and in spite of Gore having some strong runs, he did not get a rush after the 12:07 mark of the first quarter. The 49ers threw two dump-offs to him, but otherwise he was quiet much of the second quarter. What gives coaching staff?
I don't know what we'll see in the second half, but I pray it is more running. Maybe the Seahawks eventually shut down the run, but until they do, why not keep running? Maybe I'm missing something.

We break down Michael Crabtree's strong catch and run against the Seahawks in which he broke three tackles for a 16-yard gain
7 months ago Update 910 comments
The 49ers and Seahawks are all tied at 3-3 heading into the second quarter. The 49ers have dominated in the rushing game, even if the scoreboard doesn't fully reflect it. Hopefully the 49ers will stick with the ground and pound, because they are showing the Seahawks how it's done.

The most intriguing note right off the bat from the 49ers-Seahawks Thursday Night Football contest is that Ted Ginn Jr. has taken over kick return duties. He has been handling the punt return role recently, while Kyle Williams returned kicks the last few weeks (Kendall Hunter did it before that).
There could be a couple explanations for the change. The first is that with Mario Manningham out, the 49ers want Kyle Williams solely focused on his work as the team's number two receiver behind Michael Crabtree. The second is that his decisions to take some particularly deep kicks out might have left Brad Seely questioning his role as the kick returner. And of course, given the general special teams struggles, it could have been to simply mix things up given Ginn's success.
Ginn has had great success as a return man for the 49ers the last two seasons. We'll see if this is a one-week thing, or whether he will continue in the role even when Mario Manningham is healthy and back ahead of Kyle Williams.

Current Seattle Seahawks wide receiver and former 49ers wide receiver Braylon Edwards shot out a tweet a couple hours before Thursday Night Football was scheduled to kick off. The 49ers are hosting the Seahawks, and the former 49er apparently was not at all pleased with how his time in San Francisco went.
This isn't business. This is personal.— Braylon Edwards (@OfficialBraylon) October 18, 2012
I suppose he could just be talking about the natural division rivalry, but given that he was released and had an otherwise unproductive 2011 season in San Francisco, I would imagine he is none too pleased with the team. There might have been other issues that did not come to light, but based on what we know, the release should not have been all too surprising.
Edwards is on the downside of his career at this point, and he is struggling to make an impact in Seattle. He did grab a touchdown last week against the Patriots, but otherwise he has been limited. Through six weeks, Edwards has caught eight receptions for 74 yards and the touchdown. If he departs Seattle after this season and ends up with a team that faces the Seahawks in 2013, maybe it will be personal then as well.

We break down the 49ers inactive report for Thursday Night Football against the Seahawks

The 49ers are getting ready for their huge divisional matchup with the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football, which means the questionable injury concerns are testing things out to see if they can play. Here are a few pertinent tweets related to the 49ers three "questionable" players.
Staley is not doing much at all during warmups. Trainers spending a lot of time w/ Manningham, however, to see if his shoulder is ready.— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) October 18, 2012
There is no word on the final concussion tests for Joe Staley, so we'll likely have to wait right up until the inactive list comes out 90 minutes before the game. Matt Maiocco said in his opinion he thought Staley would play. We'll find out more in the next hour.
First 49er on the field for pre-game warmups is Brandon Jacobs. He's boxing the goal-post padding like it owes him money ...— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) October 18, 2012
Brandon Jacobs has been sitting the entire regular season, chomping at the bit for an opportunity to play. Matt Maiocco said he would go out on a limb and predict Jacobs would be active. Against one of the best rush defenses in the NFL, it could be "all hands on deck" time.
The general consensus is that Manningham will play. Seeing the trainers working with him over Staley would seem to be a positive sign.
