710ESPN Seattle audio: 49ers vs. Seahawks

By Mike Sando


ESPN's Brock Huard refused to accept "tie" for an answer Thursday. He forced me and his 710ESPN Seattle co-host, Danny O'Neil, to pick winners outright in a position-by-position run through rosters for the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.

The process was better than the results, in my view, but you can judge for yourself now that the audio is posted. We gave the 49ers clear advantages in a couple of areas, but it seemed as though Seattle had the edge at several positions when the calls were close.

Anyway, this should be a provocative listen for those interested in continuing what has been the primary debate within the division so far this offseason, sometimes at the risk of overlooking what could be formidable challenges from the other teams in the NFC West.

I've included at the top of this item a video we produced in conjunction with the post-draft power rankings. This one ran before, but if you missed it, we discussed the 49ers and Seahawks relatively early in the piece.
