The 49ers will be going to the Super Bowl next year. Or the Cardinals, Seahawks or even Rams. Why? The AFC East has played the eventual NFC champ since 2006: Bears, Giants, Cardinals, Saints, Packers and Giants again.

Strange...

Good news for the NFC West next year.

Just because the Packers bombed their last game of the season doesn't mean they are going to fade into obscurity. The Packers will be a threat for a few years.

Of course. As will the Giants, Saints, Lions and 49ers. But only one of those teams plays the mighty AFC East next year.

Oh I think the Bears or Packers will have something to say about that. I don't see the 49rs playing close to the level they did this year. They had one of the easiest schedules in the NFL this season. 2012 is going to be much tougher for them. I believe they have the NFC North on their schedule for away games. They'll be 9-7 at best. The Seahawks have Tjack as their QB unless that changes--they will never win enough games to win the division with him at the helm. The Cards may end up being the best team of that mess.

Hey, I agree with you Pullmyfinger! Yes, 49ers came on strong but watching them, there are still issues and schedule last year was listed 30 out of 32!

They have to play all 4 teams from the NFC North 2012, not an easy task, maybe some teams will step it up so the division isn't so weak.

I'm not saying this year was a fluke but too early to make major predictions.

LOL Susan. Let's put it this way, that loud sound the 49rs fans heard I think was that window of opportunity slamming shut. I know it well, especially after 2009.

And Alex Smith? I'm not impressed at all. They are all about that defense.

They better trade down for Andrew Luck because Alex Smith is not going to get any team to the Super Bowl the way he played yesterday.

I really wanted to say something yesterday about Alex but considering how some topics/posts go nuts thought I better not. A few tweets from Packer players I was monitoring, called him Tebow-like!

He has made some great throws granted, but when you watch close they have adjusted their game to his ability big time.
