Good and Bad: If you look at our schedule vs Seattle, it can be viewed as good and bad.
Bad: We are trying to catch Seattle in the division and even though they looked weak against St. Louis, they only have 2 more tough games... vs the Saints and @ SF
If we beat them and run the table we will win the division but that would be both teams sporting a 14-2 record, that's hard for me to see happening. Our remaining schedule, we go through another stretch of good/great teams. Carolina has a top defense and they seem to be clicking right now, then @ Saints, and @ washington, and 2 weeks later is our rematch with Seattle. I'm not doubting the 49ers but we definately have the harder road to win the division.
Good: Depending on how you look at the strength of schedule. I feel like the recent Superbowl winners have been battle tested teams. Our strength of schedule has been crazy this year and will help our guys get ready for the post-season. As long as we avoid serious injuries, I think we will be in better shape come playoff time, with or without the bye or division crown. The media kisses Seattles butt and says they can't be beat at home but I have a hard time seeing Seattle beat 3 good teams in a row come playoff time.
