The divison will shake out like this;
49ers win division with anywhere from 11-13 wins.
Cards pony up second with 10-12 wins
Hawks come in third with 10-11 wins
Rams still in the cellar 8-9 wins (more likely 9 than 8)
No 49er bias, I just this team is still too young and too hungry to lose the division. It took injuries, tons of bad calls, and a rocky start to hold us to 12-4 last year. Even then we were one play from being back in the super bowl. Seattle on the other hand couldn't have had it any easier. Winning a super bowl will set them back a bit, players lost, hunger lost and egos. Cards... meh... just don't have the pedigree. I think they have guys like Fitz and Peterson who you want to root for and see succeed but I just can't see them beating us out. Rams are young and hungry and will be a threat when they get a real QB for now, until then don't expect more than a few upsets every now and again.
