Big differences this year. James Carpenter at left guard is a monster. The O-Line is finally getting to play together. We are much younger and the young guys will wear down the older 49ers. The injury bug is bound to bite SF sooner or later, I don't wish for it, but it will happen.
Our D-Line can and will snuff their running game and SanFran has never come up against a defensive backfield like this one.
Walter Thurmond the III will be back and he will make a big difference against people like VD and Crabs.
Beast Mode and Turbinator will be on a roll by then.
DangeRuss will be in a groove with his receivers and the NFL game by then. And Bevell will have a better handle on what our team excels at.
Golden Tate, Sidney Rice, Zach Miller and the wildcard, Braylon Edwards who will want some payback.
You KNOW Pete Carroll wants that win, BADLY. His team will play to get it for him.
Bruce Irvin and Chris Clemons will be the Terrible Tandem by then, playing off of each other's strengths.
Game 7, while SF has peaked, the Seattle Seahawks are just hitting their stride. This is a very young, very tough team, and tenacity is all they know. Nobody has, or can tell them that they can't beat every team in the NFL, in any stadium.
The thing about a young team, a short week does not hurt them, and it gives them less time to over think a game. This team can, and will go in to Candlestick park and light it up.
