I might be alone in this thinking, but I still think the Niners are the class of the conference regardless of what happened on Sunday. Now I know the Hawks were actually better on the road this year, even in their losses and that in the Chicago game, a monster was created, but SF is built to win and they have win some pretty significant road games.
It isn't that I enjoy saying it, but that Niner team can get it done if they put it together. Sure, I love seeing them in disarray and giving up, but that is how they roll.
I wasn't expecting the Hawks to have the kind of balance in all aspects of their game THIS year, but thought they would improve, that Niner team has had that balance for a while and if CK can calm down, they will go far.
Still fun seeing the fans in the doldrums though. Sort of "backing" in to the playoffs.
