Found October 01, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone believes the playoffs will have to come through San Francisco even though they’re 2-2 and in second place behind the Seahawks in the NFC West. “No, not at all. We know Seattle has to come into our house. The road through the playoffs will come through us, obviously,” Boone told KNBR-AM on Monday, per the team’s official website via “And we know they’re going to play some good teams, and we control our own destiny.” I’ll believe what Boone is saying when the 49ers actually have a passing game as well as a secondary that can shut down teams the way the Seahawks do.   Need NFL Tickets?
