The 49ers have the best defense in the league.  They have a very good RB, a good TE, average WR's and an average QB.  The last one is the biggest concern for this team however, their defense is so good it shouldn't stop them from going far this season. Here's a look at their remaining schedule, predictions and a look at their division. @ Az - Win St. Louis - Win Chicago - Win, because they're at home. @ New Orleans - Win, 49ers defense too much for Brees. @ St. Louis - Win Miami - Win @ New England - Loss.  If it was in San Fran I'd think differently. @ Seattle - Win. Arizona - Win Before the season started I predicted that San Francisco would win the NFC and the Super Bowl.  I think they go 13-3 this season.  Alex Smith has played well enough for me to keep them in the Super Bowl.  I'm going to stay with them to win the Super Bowl but, I'm leaning toward picking Houston.  I'll stay with San Fran for now. ...

49ers vs Cardinals: A preview

The 49ers travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals in primetime. I kinda feel sorry for the Cardinals this week, because I have a feeling they are going to get a beatdown. The 49ers in primetime never bodes well for their opponent. The 49ers sit at 5-2 and the Cards at 4-3. A victory of the Cardinals will give them four losses in a row, which shows that their 4-0 start was nothing...
