Green Bay Packers Mike Daniels causes Seattle Seahawks Russell Wilson to fumble during the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 10 2017 in Green Bay Wis. The Packers recovered the ball

One way the Seahawks can chop more run wood - short of Carroll ordering offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to call only run plays -against the 49ers is to convert more on third down to have more than just a few plays each series. We went into a lot of depth. Bobby Wagner was a rookie, KJ Wright. Since 2000, there have been just eight 10-sack games in 18 seasons, with the Jaguars becoming the first team to hit double digits in almost three years.

Up next: The NFC champion Falcons, one of the teams that ripped the Packers in the playoffs previous year, in the opening of their new stadium in Week 2.

Such turnovers doomed the 2012-13 49ers in Seattle during their title-contending visits. After working along side Bradley in defense quality control with the Seahawks, Saleh was hired to work with the linebackers by Bradley in Jacksonville.

Cable said there's no plan to shake up the unit, something he and head coach Pete Carroll have done often during the past three seasons.

"I don't want to make any [blanket] statements past this game", Packers safety Morgan Burnett said. Understanding what's important to you as a person. Understanding that everybody has a style and that every style is the right style provided you apply it in the right way.

"He honestly played just like he has been playing".

Carroll said Saleh has added his own wrinkles to the defense and expects him to have great success in his first job as an National Football League coordinator, even though the Niners may lack the talent defensively that was in Seattle when Saleh arrived six years ago. "Great worker, brilliant guy, good communicator. I'm not surprised at all".

"Not good enough. Too inconsistent and not good enough", Seattle offensive line coach Tom Cable said, "That's why we're all kind of disappointed".

The 49ers tried to hire Bradley, but he went to the Chargers instead. He has a much more daunting task this weekend when he and his team travel north to the hostile environment of CenturyLink Field to face the Seattle Seahawks and their tough defense.

But just in case you wondered if his confidence in himself or the team he has around him was shaken at all by what happened Sunday in Green Bay Wilson made clear Thursday he still thinks the Seahawks' offense has everything it needs to accomplish the team's lofty goals this season. That's why they've had a lot of success over these years but you've just got to be ready to grind it out and play good ball against them and take it to them because there's no secret about it.

The 2017 iteration pieced together by John Lynch and Shanahan is in Year 1 of a long rebuilding phase.

A historically bad run defense a year ago, the 49ers were able to show vast improvement in week one.

Seattle has its own offensive issues, beginning with the line. "We have all the right people that can win and capitalize on what we are trying to do".

In this slideshow, we'll take a look at five minor roster adjustments Shanahan and Co. could make to better increase the Niners' chances of staging an improbable upset in Week 2. "We have to do a better job this week".
