49ers Can’t Allow Seahawks to Eat Turkey On Logo

It is one thing to be embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks on your own turf before a national television audience, it is another realizing Colin Kaepernick has regressed as spectacularly as Robert Griffin III over the past two years. And it is quite another for the National Broadcasting Corporation to set up shop on your team’s midfield logo and have Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman eat turkey.

Championship Week Against the Spread – Beats by Dre Edition

“Can he handle the pressure? That is the question about quarterback Colin Kaepernick. I talk to a lot of people, they say ‘we can get to him, we can get to him.”
