Tonight: Seahawks at 49ers

Records: Seattle (4-2), San Francisco (4-2)

Line: 49ers by 7; Over/Under: 37 1/2

Time: 5:20 p.m.  TV: NFL Network

I always thought of San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh and his 49ers as a throwback team.

But the old-school Niners suffered an old-fashioned, butt-whupping last week thanks to the Giants, who showed they’re still the team to beat in the NFC.

I got an email from Shane Kinder, from Othello, Wash., who said I should give his beloved Seahawks some respect, especially after they rallied from a 13-point, deficit vs. the Patriots last week.

All right, Kinder, here you go: Congrats to your Seagulls. But there’s some hope against what should be an angry 49ers squad: Underdogs are 57-32-2 (64 percent) against the spread this season. Pick: 49ers
