We will not lose to the Giants again. No way in hell.
I still see a 12-3-1 season, with the possibility of owning a tie-breaker to win a bye week. -Atlanta is the only team I see winning 13+ games (still), this has been a whacky season, don't expect the second seed to need more than 12 wins to get the #2 seed this time around.

Fact: 49ers were the only NFC division leader in week 10 to gain any sort of conference points/not 'officially' lose (lost; Bears, Falcons, Giants). -Yeah, it was a bad week for everybody.

I wish I shared your enthusiasm, but his team loses at New Orleans, New England, and quite possibly St. Louis. Unless they pull their heads outta their asses.

Well, it might be better to avoid a bye week and stay in rhythm.....
I think playing 1 game in 24 days really f**ked up our rhythm. We will see the real 49ers team on Monday vs the Bears.
SF remaining schedule: vs. CHI, @ NO, @ STL, vs. MIA, @ NE, @ SEA, vs. ARI

ATL remaining schedule: vs. ARI, @ TB, vs. NO, @ CAR, vs. NYG, @ DET, vs. TB

CHI remaining schedule: @ SF, vs. MIN, vs. SEA, @ MIN, vs. GB, @ ARI, @ DET

GB remaining schedule: @ DET, @ NYG, vs. MIN, vs. DET, @ CHI, vs. TEN, @ MIN

we have easily the toughest schedule of all those teams.

So have the Dallas, Carolina, New England, Minnesota, and New York Games.

my current predictions, which will inevitably be wrong:
1) ATL 13-3
2) GB 12-4
3) SF 11-4-1
4) NYG 9-7
5) CHI 11-5
6) SEA 10-6

I think that GB's schedule is harder. Save for the Titans, any upcoming opponent is a playoff-contender
If there's a strong possibility of the 49ers going #3 seed and Seahawks going #6 by December 23, how many of you would rather we tank the Seahawk game instead of trying to take them down? Beating a team 3 times in one season is difficult. Doable but not desirable.

The old playoff rules that were in place until the '90s, maybe '02 said you couldn't play a divisional team in the wildcard (maybe even divisional playoff) game. But now with the strict seeding, #3 plays #6 regardless of who it is.

This is a similar scenario to the Lions/Packers week 17 game last year where the possibility of the two teams meeting in the playoffs was realistic.

All of this is assuming this is a 95%+ likely scenario. One game will remain afterwards for both teams as well as the other 4 NFC playoff contenders. If this was a week 17 game where the playoff scenario would be certain at 4:25 PM ET save 1 or 2 teams, I'd imagine it's a legit consideration.

So we should tank the 2nd game b/c the historical stats say so???
