Once again the fans were treated to another roller coaster of a game, but this time the 49ers won (and secured the No. 1 Seed) thanks in large part to a Dre Greenlaw goal line tackle. He also had some late game heroics the last time we played the Seattle Seahawks with an interception in OT near the endzone. Unfortunately, that one didn’t result in a win. I feel like he has been severely underrated in place of the injured Kwon Alexander, and I look forward to seeing how the rookie continues to grow in future seasons.
There’s not really much else I can add to the conversation, so I’ll leave you with this wonderful video trolling some Seattle fans who decided to talk a little too much this past week:

I don’t really troll, and Niners Nation doesn’t really condone trolling, but I’m all for this kind of stuff after having to endure so much trash talk from them over the years.
