easy road to playoffs explained

Put this in Marvin's thread, but it's probably more appropriate here:

That first tie against the Rams is basically a loss as the playoff picture plays out as the Niners lose all their key tiebreakers.

-They lose the head to head tiebreakers against Green Bay and Chicago for the 2 seed.
-They lose the division tiebreaker (if it ever got that close) if records were even because Seattle could do no better than 3-3 in the division (assuming the win out in divisional play) and the Niners probably finish 4-2 at worst (if they would've won just 1 game vs. STL)

They've made things unnecessarily hard on themselves.

I had the Rams as an easy win also.......
Well the giants losing to the redskins on MNF sure helps the cause
Beat Seattle and the Dolphins and we win the division.

There you go.

If the 49ers end up missing the bye, we can say that the Rams played a crucial role in making it so.
i honestly think the niners only win 1 of the next 4 games...

i just have a bad feeling about the mojo of our team right now.
I think we can win in NE & Seattle. We could also lose both, but I think we can at least split.
We'll lose to Seattle in Seattle. But we'll win the division by winning three out of our next four. I expect one home playoff game.

This team hasn't won three straight all season. I doubt we do it now.

I do, however, seriously doubt our Super Bowl chances. Team isn't strong enough to make it that far. I can see us losing in the NFC Championship Game.

Again.
Win all 4 and get the #2 seed and a bye....

Seriously?

Come on.

We played great against the Bears and Saints and not so good against the Rams.

Our defense has been lights out all season. All season. They are straight beasting. It is our offense that has me worried. They are hot one week and cold the next.
Basically we actually need to replicate SOMETHING from last year by winning out our last few stretch of games.
Nothing is easy in the NFL
We gon win out ......period.

No. The tie is basically a loss with tie breaker advantages. If we win the same number of games as any of our opponents (including the Giants), we get the automatic tie breaker because a tie beats a loss. If we finish with one less win than any of our opponents, then it's a not a tie breaker situation, they would simply have a better record. It makes our victories vs the Packers and Bears, and our loss vs the Giants irrelevant as far as tie breakers go. We will either have a better record than them, or we won't.

In all seriousness though, we just need to get hot as we enter the playoffs. Doesn't matter how, or where we get it. Just get in.
