They weren't supposed to go into Seattle and win, either.It's all a mute point, though, because SF ain't gonna go into Denver and win.
The Niners aren't that bad.
I do, however, like KC's chances to beat Jacksonville. That one's something of a coinflip.
I went back and looked at their schedule. They are pretty bad, actually.
I think I let Frank Gore being good turn into the "Niners are good."
Not the case.
They beat the Seahawks twice, which says more about the state of football in Seattle than it does about the Niners.
That easy schedule for bad teams really worked well for the Bengals back in the late 70's-80's and most of the 90's when it was a 4 team division.
They never got the benefit of an easy schedule.
You would see bad teams in 1 division play the other bad team in another divsion AND within the same conference twice. Like if SD finished last....they would play IND twice that year....while bypassing the strongest teams in the other 2 divisions within that conference. They would also get to play the last place team in the other Conference (Like usually the Bucs or Falcons.
Not the Bengals beacuse of that 4 team divsion.
Heck......the worst thing that ever happened was being stuck in a division with PITT.
Why wasn't PITT/PHI/BAL in the same divsion after the merger?
How did CIN ever get stuck with PITT and HOU?
I guess it is kind of like CHI and STL wanting to be together in the same divisions in baseball after 1968.
