San Francisco may have won the last battle, but the war and its spoils is Seattle’s for the taking. With a win on Sunday against the 49ers in the NFC Championship (kickoff at 3:30 p.m. on FOX), the Seahawks would punch their ticket to Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2. These are two very similar teams, defensive juggernauts that will pound it out over possession. But each has a unique personality, and it could be argued that their styles represent the traits of their head coaches. Sunday will be a battle of temperaments, and emotions may very well boil over. They have in the past.

Remember the famous incident from 2009 when the two were coaches in the former Pac-10, at Stanford University (Harbaugh) and University of Southern California (Carroll)? The two coaches met in the middle of the field after Harbaugh and his Stanford team ran up the score 55-21 against USC, Carroll asking Harbaugh “What’s your deal?” To which the Stanford coach responded, “What’s your deal?”
