Personally, I'd prefer the toughest road possible.
Saints @ 49ers
49ers @ Packers
49ers vs. Patriots.
Seriously, its the most fitting road for this team (and in all honesty, probably the most realistic.)
49ers have been doubted all year long, and noone wants to give us any credit. Even if we have 12 wins, people still say we cant hang with these "good" cough* cough* 1 dimensional teams. If we win these 3 games, we would be hailed as the most unprecedented team to win a superbowl. The media would have a Tebow-esqe obsession about how Alex Smith was on the team that took out Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, and Tom Brady in the post season during the best seasons of their careers, and how we absolutely exposed all of their soft defenses. It would really just put a cap on the type of season we had. "Succeeding when noone thought we could" or even "Succeeding when noone wanted us to"
This is of course, fantasizing. But the tougher the road, the better. Thats what this team is about.
