How the 49ers Match Up with the Seahawks After Free Agency Rush

When these two teams get together, they clash like two proud rams.

In the past two seasons, the rivalry between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks has been set ablaze. Both are young, physical, talented and happen to be directly in each other’s way.

Fans can rest assured, from here on out, these divisional battles will be nothing short of heavyweight grudge matches.

Led by Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll, these franchises have been ascending, sharing the common goal of Vince Lombardi Trophy or bust. And periodically, it appears as if they are building to combat one another, and no one else.

While there is an intense repugnance between the 49ers and Seahawks, the respect could not be more profound. Anytime another team makes you change the way you strategize and build your organization, it is because they are doing something right.

In no other division in the league is the level of competition this high and this apparent between the top two teams.

Right now, the 49ers and Seahawks are neck-and-neck in an arms race for league supremacy. As they continue to enhance their already loaded arsenals, we take a look at how the 2013 personnel changes affect the state of the rivalry.
