  • Obviously winning is a necessary step, but we don't control our own fate...so I'm not as optimistic.

    If we win Sunday AND the 49ers lose, then I think we'll win the division. We would be in the driver's seat if those 2 things happen.

    No way the 49ers are losing to the Cardinals. So if the 49ers don't lose this week, it's over.

  • That's the thing, I think the Patriots beat the 49ers. They're on a mission right now.. and ironically have been since Wilson stole the W from them back in Week 6.

  • The Patriots just dismantled the Texans, which are built similarly to SF. Thing is, this gives them something to play for....they're still competing for the 2nd seed. The Pats have only lost one game in December since like 2007, they're 19-1. Belichick is a serious believer in momentum going into the playoffs. I don't think the Niners have a chance, but that would be a hell of a game to watch: the number 1 defense vs. the #1 offense.

    Like 72 stated above, we really don't control all the factors in getting us the 2 seed, or the division, but if we take care of business and win out, even if the Niners win, we're one of the hottest teams in the league, peaking at the right time, and have a ton of confidence going into the playoffs. We would be a team no one wants to play.

    That we will make the playoffs. We won't lose to the Rams, but the SF game is going to be tough.

  • If we're dreaming big....................as in long run and maybe even Superbowl, then I do think we have to win our division. Anything's possible, but winning three road games as a Wildcard team would be REALLY REALLY difficult for this Hawks team.

    Did you see last nights game when Brady shook his fists and yelled triumphantly? It struck me he was shaking off the frustration of that loss to us all those weeks ago. Crazy maybe, but he didn't look like a man exultant in his victory so much as a man flushed in the excitement of reaffirmation. Beating Houston proved something in his eyes at that moment.

    Something that needed to be reaffirmed after the loss to Seattle.

  • you better believe, the patriots want nothing more than to be SF.. they just beat the #1 team in the AFC, to beat a Top #5 team in the NFC and a team many is predicting to go all the way, would be a huge statement going into the playoffs... SF will get NE's best effort rest assured, and if they play their A game, niners will lose in a shootout.

    Sorry NFL. :lol:

  • One thing that is a given is that the 49ers have played well on East coast games the past 2 years under Harbaugh. The upcoming two games for them will either affirm their selection of Kaep as the starter or give more pause to the change. I would suspect that the Patriots can score in the 20's so the 9ers need to move the ball. I have no doubt the 9ers will be able to run the ball but passing for close to 300 yds is what they will need to win.

    Perfect storm, Seahawks win against the Bills and the 9ers lose to the Patriots. I am going to put my nagging thoughts away and embrace the idea Navy187 pushed last week before exiling himself. I am going to join the church of Moses positivity (though I haven't been near a real one since the real Moses walked the earth .. hee hee).

  • The game in Toronto this Sunday will be difficult. The ball may not be "bouncing our way" like it did this past Sunday at Home. We might not have the Refs "on our side" again.....are they ever? The key to winning is to start out with a "killer" attitude...scoring first and getting a turnover. Russell will need to be sharp for us to win. Our receivers will need to hold onto the ball as well.
    Yes, we are a five point favorite, but it is no time to think that the Bills will "roll over and die"!

  • If the 49ers and Greenbay(@Chicago) lose this week, winning out will get us the #2 seed in the NFC. This year is going to fun right down to the wire

    This is not completely true - we will need the Giants to lose at least one more game. They play at Atl and at Bal the next 2 games so hopefully will drop one of those.

    I am very hopeful NE will beat SF...but please realize SF can beat any team in the league, and NE has already lost 2 games vs. the NFC West this year [vs. Ari, at Sea]. NE is the favorite, but by no means a lock to win.

  • I just want the team to make the playoffs. If they get the division in the process, so be it, but honestly I feel like the Hawks are just a little too young (specifically discipline with penalties) to win out. They are SO close and if they really are going to make it in and actually make some noise the dumb penalties have to stop. They get enough penalties for doing nothing already.

    I DO believe they can do it, but my expectations are grounded. What a GREAT story it would be, that is for sure.

  • I'd be surprised if Kaepernick could beat New England on the road. If they do, they deserve to be division champs. As much as I respect SF, I'd give them maybe a 20% chance of winning. By DVOA this is one of the better Patriot teams ever and that is saying a lot. That plus they are firing on all cylinders right now.

  • Even if SF loses at Foxborough, they still have to lose at the Clink. You know that game will come down to an ass-load of weird penalties and a couple of plays on either side. Biting my nails all the way through.

  • From now until the very, very end of the 2012-2013 season, every game is a must win.

    It's hard to be anything but confident after the past two weeks, but a week like we had in Miami would snap me
    to reality quickly.

    I can only say, with the deepest conviction and hope, "Go Hawks".

That plus they are firing on all cylinders right now.

    I actually thing these two teams are very evenly matched, and the game will come down to Kaepernick making a mistake.
    The Niners will set some receiver traps at the sticks, and when the ball get there somebody is going to smash the guy. They do it every game. I don't think anybody else does as good at that as they do. We saw Pats receivers get short arms on our field after a few of those hits.

    Pats linebackers are not so fleet of foot. That bodes well for San Fran throwing out of the backfield and to the tight ends.
    Those same linebackers seem to bite a bit on play action. And Kaepernick is gonna get some yards that Schaub would not even dream of going after.

    Pats have some good matchups too. I am curious if Iupati will need help with Wilfork. I bet he does. And that Pats O-line will set some traps for Aldon Smith. Watching some of the sophisticated protections the Pats run is pretty cool, they will pull a guard in pass pro to smash the DE/LB when he stunts. I don't think the other Smith will enjoy the success that Watt had in getting to Brady. And the Pats run the ball well enough to keep SF honest in pass D.

    Mostly, though, I am looking forward to the battle of wits between Bill and Harbs.

    Going into the Meadowlands in January would be scary. However when you consider the amazing improvement with Wilson you gotta think anything is possible.

  • Our best chance of getting to the Superbowl is probably as the 2nd seed. We need to root for NE, Chicago and Atlanta this week. If those wins happen, all we have to do is win out for the 2nd seed. Then we hope that Atlanta chokes and we get home field in the NFC championship. The worst game is GB @ Chicago, so if GB wins they would need to lose to either Tenn or Minn. If it came down to that we'd all be the biggest AP fans in week 17.

    There is a very slim chance for the 1st seed still but it involves Atlanta losing out against NYG, Detroit and TB, as well as NYG losing against either Bal or Phil. In other words, not a great chance of happening. Better to root for Atlanta this week and against them in the playoffs.

    Even if we lost this week we can still make the 5th seed if we beat SF and StL.
