Not so much Chicago, but New Orleans IMO will be a tough one. If Brees gets going early and starts putting up points, you know that Harbaugh is going to put the ball in Alex's hands to make up for being down. And that = big trouble.
Well it worked in the playoffs.
Also Brees will not get hot against our defence. And their defence can´t stop anyone, Ok maybe they can stop the Jaguars.

We hold tie breaker over GB and CHI for beating them. I also think we control our own destiny. Win out and with a loss or 2 by Atlanta we got home field, but first up Saints.
Traditional tie-breakers are irrelevant. With the tie SF has first tie-breaker (better win %) than any team with the same # of wins as them when the season ends because they will have one less loss. It's really that simple. This is why the lead over the Seahawks in the division is essentially two games right now - they have to outright win more games than SF to win the division.
You better believe the media will be all over this. They've been salivating at a chance to write/talk about Kaep's first loss and if Harbaugh made the right decision.
Now that we lost a game BECAUSE of Kaep, there is going to be a s**tstorm raining down on 4949 centennial blvd. And that's the way it should be. Harbaugh created this situation, and I pray he is right. My gut tells me he his, but today was a bit discouraging.
If the Lowell Cohns of the world have a useful purpose, it's not to be your local team's homer softball lobber...but to actually hold Harbaugh's feet to the fire and hold him accountable for questionable decisions he made during the game.
