We're one game behind, and I don't see us having 2 more wins than Detroit from the rest of our schedule, but I'm putting this up here to generate discussion. Now, not getting into player by player analysis, but rather, just looking at the overall schedules, it's dicey at best, to think we can win the division over Detroit, as the remaining games for each team go: Detroit Chicago Steelers Ravens Bucs Rams Packers Vikings Eagles Cowboys Ravens Browns Giants Eagles Vikings Packers Even though Detroit is highly overrated, considering they are the ONLY NFCNorth team to go without a serious injury to a starting QB at this point, I don't see us winning 2 more games than the Lions at this point (I'm not saying it won't happen, but that it's gonna be really difficult, but it's not like stranger things haven't happened), so I'm going to show you guys what team I think we should all be rooting against, for their losses will help us guarantee a wild card spot. Obviously, I'm talking about the Carolina Panthers, who are probably the "hottest" team in the NFL right now, having held the 49ers to 4 offensive yards in the 4th quarter. They obviously own the tiebreaker over the 49ers, but with San Francisco getting many of their offensive weapons back into their lineup for the first time this year, San Francisco has the looks of a team that's ready to explode over the next few weeks. We are a game behind both wildcard teams for a playoff spot, and here's what the remainder of their schedules look like: 49ers Panthers NO NE WAS Miami STL TB SEA NO TB NYJ ATL NO ARI ATL Now, between those 2, doesn't it seem, on paper anyway, that the 49ers have an overall easier schedule? It seems the most probable chance we have is to win the remainder of our games, and hope Carolina slips against NO once or twice, and the Jets or Patriots help us out, too.
