Crazy f**kers here on the zone.
Plus we actually gained ground on the #2 seed. All the top teams lost while we tied (f**king tie). If we win against the Bears we are the #2 seed with 6 games to go. Kind of where we were last year.
I love the optimism, and I for one am planning on seeing a postseason run. But there's a difference between being an optimist and a realist. So far, 2 of the 3 beatdowns we've had were against mediocre competition. And yes, I consider Minnesota mediocre. The point I am/was trying to make is that there's no room for error, especially in a division that has for some odd reason become competitive.
At this point, a loss to all three (SEA, NO, and NE --- which is quite possible btw) puts us on the brink of winning the division. If we lose one more game...you know, a game that we SHOULD win but decide not to show up (Miami for example), now all of a sudden Seattle is sitting in the driver's seat. It has happened before, btw. Try the 1991 49ers that went 10-6, but missed out on the playoffs bc they tied with the Falcons and Saints. Go figure....
