Although you are right that it might not matter for the division, we (as a team) can't look at it like that. You really never know what will happen in the NFL, especially in division games. I am 99% certain the Niners will win the division now, but I will continue to hold out hope for the miracle of our going 2-0 and their going 0-2 the final two weeks.
I won't give up that division title until it's totally over and that won't happen before week 17 if we can beat them this week.
