Do the 49ers have to run the table to get homefield advantage and win the NFC West?

I don't know? That's a good question? Suppose we beat Seattle at home and each win out for 14 - 2. What then?

Tie should go to the reigning div champion

Should or whatever I don't know? But what really is the tiebreaker in this scenario? Anybody know?

Im going down the list here http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures

they will go by strength of victory as step to divide the two in which case, I think the seahawks would win the division.

you get to the playoffs anyway you can,, you then make a deep run anyway you can no matter where the games are at. all fans should be thrilled if we end up in a nfc title game for the third year in a row,, even if we have to go to seattle. what in the world is the matter with some people?

That is true. But, I actually look at it from the other way around. I believe there is a chance we can win out (that is aside from the Seahawks at home). In other words, there may be a very slim chance we can catch back up to them and the decider might well lie on a head-to-head. But, I am just not confident we can beat them even at home.

We played them the 2nd week of the season. Most teams are still trying to get into a rhythm. Not making any excuses because the Hawks are good, but at home. They barely beat Carolina and was getting manhandled against Houston for most of that game. Tennessee could have beaten them at home. When we played them in the 2nd week, it was a game until end of the 3rd quarter and our defense just couldn't hold them off anymore. Reinforcements will be back for our next meeting and I'm just hoping Manningham and Crabs are back to form because with them at full strength its a different game I believe at the stick. As far as them having Harvin, our Kryptonite for him could very well be Wright.

A perverse side of me wants the 9ers to play in Seattle in the playoffs. I really want this team to get that monkey off their backs. I think SF, if healthy, is the better team and they need to learn how to play with noise.
of course this is the truth,, i relish a chance for this team to play up there in the playoffs. we can not be scared of them up there for the rest of our lives. you gotta beat em sooner or later up there. now how satisfying would that be to beat them up there in the second most important football game a team will ever play!! that is a great challenge and one you should embrace in stead of hiding under the bed.. i just want our team to be a position to play in the title game , no matter where it is or who it is against

We were the last team to win up there and I really want to be the next team to win up there. If it was the NFC Title game and we could end the schnide plus, deny them a Superbowl berth and create an endless river of Seahawk fan tears it would be all the sweeter. It would top the thorough a$$ whooping we laid on the Bears in Chicago in January of 89.
Home field advantage or wild card no teams scare me if our team is at full strength. Sherman can easily blanket the slower boldin, but at many times has trouble playing as aggressive against Crabtree who has much quicker footwork then Boldin.
The Niners won a Super Bowl after ending up a Wildcard team at 10-6. For one of their playoff games, they had to go to Chicago and face the 80's Bears in -25 degree windchill weather. Can you even imagine the looks on the faces of the "12th man" up there in the closing minutes of a playoff game in which the NIners are knocking out the Seahawks in Seattle? That would be one for the ages.

I think Mario should be back to form by the time we play, but I doubt Crab will. Crab won't be back until late Nov, he will probably need more time. True they could have got beaten by the Texans, but by the same token they didn't get hammered by the Colts neither. Oh well, I just hope you are right for our sake.

IMO, that is wise. There is no reason to be confident the NIners can beat the Seahawks. Can the NIners beat the Seahawks? Absolutely. But let's not kid ourselves. They've never been stronger than they are this season.

Seattle is a tough team, but they could easily be 3-4 right now after squeaking out last minute wins vs. Carolina, Houston, Tenn., and losing to the Colts.

Crabtree is much better at letting Shermans aggression bite sherman in the ass because he uses his footwork to let shermans aggressive pursuit slow sherman down and get around him, Crabs isnt fast but he is quick and gets around Sherman no huge downfield plays but he chews yards off the field when Sherman wants to play tough.
