2012 49ers Gameday Thread: Week 16: 49ers at Seahawks
Not sure if Borat is doing his GameDay thread this week so I figured what the hell, mine as well post this and if Borat does make a GameDay thread for this week, this topic can just be deleted.
Anyway, on to the next game -
49ers at Seahawks this Sunday Night on SNF for the NFC Division Title. If we win Sunday, we clinch the division. If we lose, we'll have to win next Sunday at home against the Cardinals to clinch the division title regardless of what the Seahawks do in Saint Louis.
With that being said, im hoping we can go in to Seattle and win which would be huge for us for a few reasons. First, we'll clinch the NFC West division title. Second, we'll stay ahead of the Packers for the second seed. Third, if the Falcons lose tomorrow night and we win on Sunday, we'll be in good position to possibly steal the number one seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Granted, the Falcons losing their last two games and us winning the last two games is slim but still a possibility. Regardless of what the Falcons do tomorrow night, the 49ers have to win the next two games in order to secure the number two seed which gives us a first round bye and a home playoff game in the divisional round.
To me, the second seed is extremely important because having that week off to rest Justin and Aldon Smith would be great. I know some would prefer to leave Justin out for Sunday's game but not me, if he can play, he needs to play because winning the Seahawks game is very important. If we dont finish 12-3-1, I dont see us getting the second seed because highly unlikely that the Packers lose either of their last two games.
As for the Seahawks game itself, im expecting a close defensive battle as we're number one in points allowed and Seattle in number two. Of course, im predicting the opposite as I have done since Kaepernick became the starter. High octane offense which seems far more energetic and determined with Kaepernick. Also love his ability to not get rattled at all. When the Patriots came back and tied the game at 31, I was pissed off as hell at our defense but seeing Kaepernick come right back with a pass to Crabtree who avoided a tackle and ran for a TD was awesome. That shows that even when it looks like our momentum is gone and the team would be down, the offense came right back to take a lead and hold on for the win.
Anyway, prediction time -
That's right. An eleven point win and scoring 30+ points yet again. Yeah baby!!! Kaepernick throws at least 2 TD's with no interceptions. Probably will scramble for some good yardage as well. Gore will score a rushing TD and im going to predict that LaMichael James will score his first TD on either a kick or punt return. :)
