49ers' front seven nothing to be trifled with for Seahawks

There is no hotter team in the NFL than the Seattle Seahawk, but to beat San Francisco this coming Sunday, the Seahawks need to slow down the 49ers fierce pass rush. Seattle tight end Zach Miller called the 49ers front seven "the best in the league" on Monday afternoon.

The Seattle Seahawks are playing as well as anyone in the NFL right now, but to notch their fifth straight victory Sunday, they'll need to slow down the 49ers' fierce pass rush.

That front seven is on the minds of all Seahawks players, including tight end Zach Miller who spoke about the 49ers on Monday afternoon. Here are his quotes, via the Bob and Groz Show:

"Really, their front seven is I think definitely the best in the league. They've shown it," Miller said.

San Fransisco's front seven is tough, and led by arguably the best defensive end in the league, Aldon Smith. Smith is tied for the NFL lead with 19.5 sacks, including one in San Francisco's 13-6 win over Seattle back on Oct. 18. In addition to Smith, Miller also mentioned All-Pro linebackers NaVorro Bowman and Patrick Willis, who've combined for just under 150 tackles this season.

Seattle enters Sunday's game having won four in a row, while San Francisco has won four of their last five.
