The 49ers won last week and earned this spot, at least until they lose in Seattle this week. Then would Seattle be #1 even though you can’t trust them to win a single road playoff game, let alone 3 (4 if you include the neutral site Super Bowl)? Would it be the Patriots again, even though they just lost to the 49ers? Or would the 49ers stay put even though they’d have 4 losses and a tie? Or would I have to put the Packers here just because, even though I haven’t been impressed by them, I feel like they’re being given just enough doubt to go on a huge run once they’re healthy? All I can say is, it’s going to be a fun finish.

Sarah Redden in the new rapping YouTube sensation. This 5-year old little girl is rap/singing about Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers going to the Super Bowl. This video is a bit more fancy than most home made YouTube videos. Not to mention they went all out with the fake tattoos, and can even pronounce “organically” correct. Check out the video below.
Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh have a history together, they both coached in the PAC-10. Carroll ran the monster years of USC dominating, while Harbaugh flew a little under the radar until Andrew Luck brought Stanford out of darkness.
The two know each other very well and Carroll even lambasted Harbaugh for running up the score on his team.
Of coarse that was after Carroll had...
PEOPLE: THEY'RE THE WORST
After retweeting a death threat he received on Wednesday, it appears that San Francisco 49ers kicker David Akers has shut down his Twitter account.
The 49ers are preparing for Sunday's game against Seattle with the assumption that defensive end Justin Smith won't be available. Smith left last week's 41-34 victory over New England in the third quarter because of an undisclosed elbow injury and did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Smith's departure from the game nearly coincided exactly with New England...
A couple of weeks back, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was riding the bench as Alex Smith lead the team to the top of the NFC West.
Now, Kaepernick has them one win away from clinching the division and he has earned the admiration of 49ers fans across the world.
Check out this rather cute tribute rap song that a little 49ers fans did in honor of Colin:
Joe Staley, Mike Iupati and Alex Boone face off in a Dance-off. Boone clearly has better dance skills.
The 49ers beat the unbeatable Patriots last week and now have a chance to prove they are the Super Bowl favorite.
The season is coming to a close and I'm sitting at 142-82. That's over .600 but I can do better.
Here's a look at week 16

The Colin Kaepernick rap by five year old Sarah Redden is making its way into the hearts of San Fransisco 49er fans and the like, it has been going viral all over the internet.
Sarah raps about Kaepernick, the 49ers quarterback in the following video.
“Wearing No. 7 like Colin Kaep, talking Super Bowl wins, he’s bringing them back,” Sarah raps in the video, covered in fake...
San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois has been preparing all week to start in place of All-Pro Justin Smith on the NFL's second-ranked defense.
The 49ers remain uncertain whether that will actually happen Sunday night in a NFC West showdown against the Seattle Seahawks.
Smith's availability is in question after he missed practice Friday because of an...
The San Francisco 49ers have several
key players listed as questionable as they prepare for this weekend’s matchup
against the Seattle Seahawks, including defensive end Justin Smith and wide
receiver Mario Manningham, while linebacker Aldon Smith is probable to suit up,
reports Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee.
Make of this what you will: Jim Harbaugh today said that
As reporters circled around Ricky Jean Francois in the 49ers locker room Friday, teammates Randy Moss, Colin Kaepernick and Mike Iupati each stopped by to call out good-natured questions from behind the crowd, drawing laughs all around. Nobody seems too worried about Jean Francois stepping in for stalwart defensive leader Justin Smith at Seattle on Sunday, particularly not Jean Francois.
I’ve had enough of this sh*t Juan…
According to the Sacramento Bee, Akers decided enough was enough after receiving a death threat.
Kicker David Akers, who has struggled in recent games, re-tweeted this message around 7 p.m. Wednesday: RT @RIP_FreeLaddin YOU F—-OT IF YOU MISS ONE MORE FIELD GOAL YOU ABOUT TO GET YOUR ENTIRE LIFE ENDED. Akers appears to have disabled his Twitter...
Dashon Goldson has a stack of manila envelopes in his locker, filing away the paperwork every time the NFL has fined the 49ers’ Pro Bowl free safety. While he has heard from the league office more than a dozen times in his six-year career, the letters often had little to do with his hard-hitting ways until this season.
