49ers Vs. Seahawks: Fox Broadcast Testing In-Game Music With Annoying Results

Fox is broadcasting Sunday's Seattle Seahawks game against the San Francisco 49ers and is taking it as an opportunity to test out some ridiculous in-game music. Perhaps as punishment for the putrid football that resides in the NFC West, Fox has spent the day torturing fans watching the broadcast, both with the announcers and the accompanying music.

It's bad enough we have Brian Billick calling the game for what seems like the millionth time this season. Not only does he stumble over words, but he generally has no idea what's going on. In an effort to spice things up, Fox, home of the dancing robot, added a drama-themed soundtrack fit for a James Cameron movie.

Replays? Thumping drums and percussion. Teams walking up to the line for the next play? Dramatic music. A poor mistake, dropped pass or stupid penalty? Benny Hill music. OK, I made that last one up, but the rest are true.

Not only is it decreasing the value of the broadcast; it's making many consider muting the game. Please, Fox, we're begging you. Kill the music and, if possible, send Billick out with it.

Mike Williams, Ben Obomanu Inactive For The Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks are in San Francisco, getting set to take-on the 49ers in pivotal NFC West action on Sunday. The Seahawks, however, will be without Mike Williams and Ben Obomanu as both are inactive for today’s game. The Seahawks will sorely need Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett to get it going on the ground against the 49ers with just a small handful of healthy, yet inexperienced, receivers able to take the field.

Obomanu, sidelined with a severe hand laceration, took the field for warmups wearing a heavy hand wrap. Williams, snake-bitten by injuries after starting the year strong, suffered a sprained ankle to go along with a sprained foot. It’s the latest in a long line of injuries for Matt Hasselbeck’s favorite target.

Deon Butler and Ruvell Martin will start in place of the two inactive receivers. Martin signed with the Seahawks during the offseason, was released during the final round of cuts and was re-signed during the season as wide receiver depth became an issue.
