Seahawks players seem to have a much bigger thing going on with the Rams as evidenced by the discussions that happened all last season after games.

But what about their other NFC West rivals, the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals? Even Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had some words ahead of Sunday’s game.
