NFC West....Should we be worried?

Except the Cardinals, the remaining 3 teams the 49ers will face in Dec...are good. Heck, the Cardinals might give everything they've got esp when they have nothing to lose...similar to the Rams who tried all those trick plays in the first game.

The defense played great on Sunday, gave up maybe 5 points. The offense - enough of the trick plays, and illegal shifts and the penalties...time to play some serious football.

The 49ers are still leading the division, but if they don't start treating the next 4 games as "critical", the season will be cut short pretty soon.
If we make it as a wild card, disappointment. Very possible to if we don't win the next 3 out of 4, at least.

I think we beat the Phins and lose to the Pats. Setting up a showdown for the West with the Seachickens.
My heart thinks we take the #2 seed, but my brain says #3, I think we go 3-1, with either a loss to the Pats or Seahawks.

No harm in starting in the Wildcard round, #3 - #4 seeds usually win the Superbowl.

How about when were a wild card team (#5-#6)?

Wouldn't mind that either, it's not the best thing to ask for (having to 'road' your way to the Superbowl), but it's been done many a time as well. Just gotta get there, and once we do, anything can happen. -I even recall Zona in '08 finished #4, and ended up hosting a #6 seed eagles squad in the Conference Championship.

If we go 3-1, we will likely be the #2 seed. That would give us 11 wins. Green Bay, Chicago, or the Giants would have to win out their remaining games to get to 12 wins. Seattle would have to win out the remaining games. If they get to 11 wins, we take it because of the tie.

The Giants have a pretty tough remaining schedule. And Green Bay and Chicago play each other. Hopefully none of these teams will win all of their remaining games and we can go at least 3-1. We will have to win one out of the two road games left and win both the home games imho. We got it clinched if we go 4-0 as the tie will give it to us over the other teams if another team has 12 wins also.

Then hopefully Atlanta loses it's first playoff game and we become the top remaining seed.

Go Redskins tonight! C'mon RG3!!

Why pray for another team to win, when you could have gone back to AS and easily win the division. Oh that's right Harb switch the QB, now we see CK's limitations and people are now second guessing... Just Saying. -Mr.Truth

Limitations? You mean the atrocious third down conversion rate with Alex at QB? Stop beating a dead horse, Kaepernick is the QB and has done substantially better in terms of moving the offense, yesterday the playcalling was absolute garbage but if not for a drop by stone-hands Walker, the 49ers end up winning anyways.
We need to win @seattle to secure the division
yup, division's in our hands. just win and we'll be good. not worried about other teams at all!
Still not worried about the division title. We have a two game lead with four to go. Seattle doesnt have a cake walk either. Easy game at home against AZ. Travel to play Buffalo in Toronto who has played better of late. At home against us. Then finish off at home against the rams who beat them earlier this year.
