Just want this scenario:

Divisional: beat Dallas
NFCCG: beat Packers
Super Bowl XLVI: beat Steelers

This will forever cement the greatness that is the San FranSIXco 49ers

either steelers or ravens a true harbowl would be completely epic and the niners would have something to prove willis would play like a madman out there
Lets do this today
If the Niners win every remaining game vs the West we are at worst the 2 seed, I like our chances.

Yeah hard choice. I would love to see them beat pitt for #6 so we can all talk s**t forever about having six and getting it over the other 6 win team.

But the harbowl would be amazing.
It seems that if we are indeed a #3 seed, the road to the superbowl HAS to go to #2. Unless there's some unexpected falloff it will be NO....but right now it is possible that the closest alternative is ATL, and would take a miracle for that team to be DAL OR NYG.

What's interesting is if you wanted to concoct a scheme to skip NO and go straight to GB, you'd need to drop to a 4th seed (lowest allowed).
Assuming #3 beats #6, #4 has to play #1.

Hypothetical:

1. GB
2. NO
3. DAL
4. SF
5. ATL
6. NYG

Of course if you pull off the upset, the road to the bowl still go through #2 or #3, but at that point you probably have the confidence to beat one of the 49er superbowl teams. ;)

It's not a super viable strategy, and you can't even force it even by losing out but interesting to think about. If god forbid we drop the next two and ATL and DAL win the next two, then an intentional loss to the Rams could be considered.

In reality, the last two Steeler superbowls featured unexpected 6th seeds....first the Steelers themselves, then the Cardinals. The Cards weren't given a chance even in the NFC Champ game!

BTW, I'm not being a Debbie Downer here.....don't wish this morbid mentality on the team, but it's more for those "gotta get #2 or we're out" mentality.

In all honesty, the biggest problem with losing to the Saints is not being a good enough team. Merely being at the stick is no guarantee of success....I'd rather go THERE with the RIGHT team than host with a questionable team.

Man, gotta bring back that road arrogance.....what I miss the most from the end of the Montana era.

Last time I checked we were still 2. Lets not give up before the games are played.
please use this thread for any discussions about possible playoff scenarios involving the San Francisco 49ers.
damn i really want that 2nd seed. this team needs a week off to work on plenty of things offense wise and i sure as hell dont wanna go to NO

I keep hearing people say that. The "I don't want to go to NO" argument.

While that IS true, I'm also concerned with the fact that Niners would have to beat someone FIRST before they even get the CHANCE to play NO.

More than just homefield, I want the Niners to get the free pass to round 2 and rest the players.
We will beat the Saints if they play in SF

We will stop Drew Brees.
The Niners have to win this week. Nobody can beat the Saints in NO. The Packers are the only team that could even stay in the stadium with them and I think they would have a hard time keeping up. Win or lose I dont want to see the Niners go out on a beat down in NO!
Beware of the Falcons too guys, I just have a weird feeling abut them. Especially now the Julio Jones is healthy.. he's very very dangerous
I'd cream my pants if it were a Niners vs Ravens Superbowl. To be honest I enjoy watching the Ravens play and would say they're my 2nd favorite team. It'd probably go down as one of the greatest superbowls ever.
