With the vitriol spewed between NFC West rivals 49ers and Seahawks and their fans, particularly with the who-would-you-take battle of Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson, it's easy to forget that the actual players don't hate eaach other nearly as much.

Proof comes via Wilson's Twitter account, where he posted a picture of him and Kaepernick playing Madden together for an EA Sports Madden 25 commercial.

And, yes, that's Wilson "Kaepernicking" in the photo ... apparently after tossing a touchdown against his rival.

Few things are more interesting for the upcoming season than wondering how the Seattle-San Francisco arms race of this offseason will translate to the actual football being played.

That we'll get to see Kaep and Russell going head-to-head only serves as a perfect teaser. And, no, it doesn't matter that the two guys happen to not hate one another.
