For me, when it comes down to it, I don't care what happens overall during the regular season as long as we are healthy and make the playoffs. Yes, Seattle will likely win the division and have HFA through the playoffs, but that is not set in stone. Until that happens, I will remain hopeful that this division is within our grasp. If we don't get it, I am confident that a healthy Niner team can beat anyone on the road outside of the Hags. I'm not saying it can't be done, I am just saying that I am not confident that the Niners can pull off a playoff win in Seattle, but that it could be done in any other venue if we are healthy.
The problems we are seeing are fixable, not everyone has a defense like Carolina or one that really presents a problem for us. This team could still finish 13-3 and have the entire Enchilada. A couple of tough games coming up, but they are WINNABLE. Whatever happens, my ultimate goal is to see the Niners in the Super Bowl again, with a win this time. As long as we make the playoffs, the Niners have a chance of getting that win.
