I look at it this way... regardless of how the NFC stacks out we have to worry about getting out of the wild card round before we start talking about the NFC Championship or Superbowl. End of story, our success is not a given regardless of our past success. There are a lot of hungry teams in the NFC looking to take their own path to glory.
Yes, and those teams have flaws. Philly, Dallas, and Detroit are all good teams but none are as complete a team as the 49ers, who would be favored on the road against any 3rd or 4th seed. But you're right - we need to take care of business, play the next three games with as much passion and energy as we did against Seattle, and then take the playoffs one game at a time.
