The Niners are 2-3 plays away from an 11 game winning streak. If McDonald had caught that ball against Carolina, if Brooks wasn't called for the hit on Brees, the Niners would be 12-2 and nearing home field advantage.
This team is very good, however we will now have to win in Seattle to make the Super Bowl.
To win in Seattle the Niners cannot waste timeouts on play clocks winding down, we have to be able to get TDs once in the red zone, we have to hit deep balls on Seattle, like the one Vernon caught yesterday.
I think the offense would need to be simplified for the Seattle game, almost no audibles, we would have to hit on some deep passes, we have to get the lead. On defense I would try and mirror Seattle some and load the box to stop Lynch and stop Wilson from running. Our secondary will have to play lights out.
It will be a battle, but we have to change some things to win up there.
