Although Seattle has been marred by several key injuries, it has looked the part of the deepest team in the league in the early going of the season.
Consider this: Seattle was without cornerback Brandon Browner (hamstring), defensive end Chris Clemons (knee) and strong-side linebacker Bruce Irvin (suspension), yet managed to silence San Francisco's offense.
In 2012, Irvin, Clemons and Browner combined for 19.5 sacks, three interceptions and seven forced fumbles.
However, their presence wasn't missed. The 49ers totaled 207 yards on 51 plays and couldn't capitalize on two red-zone attempts.
NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal detailed how formidable Seattle looks at home:
On a night when the Seahawks' "12th Man" reportedly set a Guinness World Record for loudest stadium at CenturyLink Field, it is increasingly hard to imagine Seattle losing at home. This is a team that entered the season as the NFC favorite and only looks better after two weeks. Bruce Irvin, Chris Clemons, Brandon Browner and Percy Harvin haven't even played yet for this team.
If the 49ers can't win in Seattle, who can?
Seattle's depth at every position is arguably unmatched. In two games, the defense has surrendered just 10 points despite being short-handed.
And with Cliff Avril slowly working into a role on the defensive line, Seattle's pass rush is bound to get much, much better.
