49ers vs. Seahawks: Who won the 2020 offseason battle?
The 49ers and Seahawks again appear poised to contend for the NFC West crown in 2020, meaning their offseason efforts are crucial to evaluate.
The NFL has multiple rivalries across the league, and the San Francisco 49ers have no shortage of top rivals over their storied history.
This is what makes football in general intriguing to watch. The rivalries help raise the stakes and make the game very exciting. The Niners, in general, have been involved in some of the most exciting rivalries over the years. Since this NFL offseason is particularly interesting, with the effect of COVID-19 and how it will affect the season moving forward, one can only speculate just how teams’ rivalries will end up being affected.
San Francisco is no different.
All NFL teams have their unique ways to build and construct their teams. It is always interesting to look closer into how certain teams are constructed and how they approach the offseason. When looking at teams that are rivals, it becomes especially interesting. Those teams sometimes build to stop the opposite team. There is also no perfect way to build a team and have success in the NFL. Since the NFL is divided into divisions, it is also fascinating to look into divisions and look at each team and how they stack against each other.
The NFC West is a very compelling division right now. The 49ers just went to the Super Bowl, the Arizona Cardinals are on the rise, and the Seattle Seahawks being very consistently good for the last seven years.
It shows the NFC West is coming up as a very good division, and the Niners and Hawks have had a very intense rivalry over the last 10 years.
So let’s take a look at each team and how they fared this offseason, speculating what it means for the upcoming 2020 campaign.
