They could easily be 6-5 when they play us. They have gone 4-2 in their last 6 games. Sure, with the exception of Seattle their competition has not been upper tier, but still they are all NFL teams. And they still managed to win.
I'm not worried, but they are no longer a bad team.
Their wide receiver, Antonio Bryant, just got arrested for a DUI. I don't know if he will be suspended because I don't know if this is his first offense or not but if he is out for a while, that could slow them down a bit.
The NFC South and NFC East teams (the 2 best NFC conferences) all play each other, and are completely beating each other up this year - there might be a lot of 9-7s and 8-8s among these teams.
The NFC North and West play each other as well. SF is left with a pretty patsy schedule (except for us of course) and can really run the table otherwise. We HAVE to beat them, because we very possibly might be tied with them at the end of the year.
