And, man, did he soar. But he wasn't the only Seattle linebacker playing great football, as Austin Calitro also wreaked havoc against the 49ers.

He has 17 receptions for 339 yards and four touchdowns in eight games this season for the Niners.

Sherman returned to CenturyLink Field for the first time as a member of the 49ers Sunday, where Seattle dismantled San Francisco, 43-16.

The rout had been on long before Wagner's interception in the fourth quarter.

Yes, that's the flawless corner of the end zone, in case you were wondering.

This will be the first time Sherman will face the Seahawks, where he starred from 2011 to 2017. "I'd like to let him tell them and not me".

Sherman: I Don't Really Have a Relationship with Wilson

"You can't talk about this game unless you talk about Bobby Wagner", Carroll said, stopping himself midway through his opening statement. "I was super exhausted, and I was trying to figure out which celebration I can catch my breath on". "It's one of those things where you hope he does good, but you hope you do better and win". Plus, he had a sack, forced a fumble and had 12 tackles.

Coach Pete Carroll wasn't joking when he stated after the game that throwing three touchdowns in only six pass attempts is "rare". "He had just a phenomenal game". Just how many plays he made. It was a take-care-of-business game, and the Seahawks took care of business with Wagner's All-Pro day and another one of Wilson's more efficient performances. He's a phenomenal football player, really in the peak of his career. "It was cool. We'll see him in a couple weeks".

Sherman's comments came moments after critiquing his former teammate's erratic play when a reporter asked if he knew what Wilson was capable of in terms of making plays while scrambling out of the pocket.

Sherman would go on to have one of the most epic postgame interview rants of all time. The real intrigue is going to be on the field once the game starts when you'll see Sherman going up against Doug Baldwin or potentially Tyler Lockett.

That's fine with Wagner.

Sherman has quickly ingratiated himself in San Francisco after being despised for so long by the 49ers.

The Seahawks celebrated a Jaron Brown touchdown catch by re-enacting Sherman's deflection of a pass intended for former 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree in the 2014 NFC Championship Game.
