Kurt Warner predicts 49ers will earn No. 1 seed in NFC, beat Saints and Seahawks

Dec 5, 2019 at 9:03 AM--

NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner turned a few heads, and garnered some praise from the Niner Faithful, on Wednesday when he said he believes the San Francisco 49ers are the best team in the NFC. The New Orleans Saints will try to prove otherwise on Sunday when they host the Kyle Shanahan-led squad.

The Seattle Seahawks, currently sitting atop the NFC West, may have something to say about that, too.

All three teams enter Week 14 with matching 10-2 records. The Seahawks beat the 49ers in Week 10, giving them the division lead, for now. The Saints beat the Seahawks earlier in the season, giving them the slight edge when it comes to the lead within the conference.

There are still four weeks to play, and a lot can happen before the end of the season. In addition to their trip to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday, San Francisco will have another crack at the Seahawks on December 29 in Seattle.

Warner not only believes the 49ers are the best team in the NFC, he believes they will eventually end up with the No. 1 seed in the conference when everything is said and done, beating both the Saints this weekend and the Seahawks during Week 17.

"I still think San Francisco is the most complete team in the NFC," Warner told Lindsay Rhodes on NFL Total Access. "The Saints are right behind them, so I can't wait for this matchup. It's going to be tough.

"I'm leaning a little bit toward San Francisco now, early in the week, and I believe they will get Seattle when they play against Seattle. A good team — Russell Wilson is awesome — but not quite as complete.

"So, I see San Francisco finishing this whole thing as the No. 1 seed."

Two writers for The Athletic, Matt Barrows and David Lombardi, recently took a shot at predicting the San Francisco 49ers' 53-man roster. That's not an easy task, given the unusual circumstances surrounding the offseason. NFL players haven't even practiced together in an official capacity. Although, that will happen soon, thanks to a recent agreement between the league and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA). Training camps will begin next week, once players undergo two separate COVID-19 tests. The first couple of weeks will focus on strength and conditioning and walk-throughs. Players will finally put on helmets on the 18th day and then pads on the

Pro Football Focus continues its position-by-position rankings and has landed on NFL secondaries. Where does the San Francisco 49ers unit fall? It rounds out a top 10, which is understandably headlined by the Baltimore Ravens. Analyst Steve Palazzolo gives some credit for the 49ers defense's turnaround last season to veteran cornerback Richard Sherman returning to form. Pro Football Focus lists him as the highest-graded cornerback from last season. Of course, age could start to play a factor. The 10-year veteran is 32 years old. "Though he had a tough Super Bowl, Sherman allowed just 227 receiving yards in the regular season — and he
