I look at who Seattle has beaten and the only ture contender is us, the Cards are decent but far from a true playoff team. There was Carolina week one but that team they played then and the team we played are day and night. Playing the Saints at home then the 49ers and Giants on the road will be a true test. Even if they come out of that 1-2, they still could get clipped by the Cards or Rams.
I have always held out hope that unless the Niners were mathematically eliminated, that they would rise up and take their place. I was not ready to accept anything other than that. So, what I am about to say is going to contradict all those posts I made of hope and belief. I'm sorry to anyone I might have been critical of for thinking it was out of reach weeks ago. It was just too early then for me.
Going through the list of teams that Seattle has beaten and how they have played has absolutely no value in pertaining the next games, of which the Hags only have 5 and what else? 3 of those are at home. Have we really not learned our lesson on that one? Considering the game that we gave the Saints, who in their right mind really thinks NOLA is going to go into the Bermuda Triangle of road wins and beat THAT team? Really? They put Harvin on the field for a few plays in his first action in a year. The guy made a circus catch and then broke a 57 yard kickoff return, while making every defender out there look like they were standing still. The Hags ARE getting better and we are just talking about the Niners getting better.
The answer is absolutely not. While I believe that the Niners could potentially win out, I doubt it and there is no way that Seattle loses 3 of it's last 5 games. if it happens, hey... Ban me, whatever. I would LOVE to be wrong, but I am not looking at this thing through my red and gold glasses, these guys need to get it together, make the playoffs and go on a historic run once they are in. Forget Seattle, if we win out, we are going to the playoffs.
