    In a couple of years maybe, when Murray has found his feet and has more talent around him that would be a great matchup.

    As for the 49ers, not in a million years did I expect them to do this well this season. I’m amazed at how they have gone through their games, and how their lesser known talent has shone through. Breida, Mostert and Coleman would be the most effective (and cost effective) running back trio in the league right now. Our weakest position (wide receiver) has been pretty good apart from that Seattle game. I knew our defence would improve but not by that much.

    I’m absolutely stoked to be a Niners fan at the moment. After sticking through the last half a decade, watching every game and suffering loss after loss, this has been a great ride.

    With Minnesota and Packers firing it is possible and up 6th.
    5th is ok as will Plays Philli or Dallas and should win but doubt you want one of the Seatle,Saints,Packers or Vikings away.

    That’s the problem, I would rather have home ground advantage through the playoffs.

    Just incredible, next week is going to b epic proportions. This so far has been close to the best season I’ve ever watched a team go thru in my life.

    Yeah, those two 3rd downs were incredible and against all odds. Something special about this team, not sure if they can go all the way but they are leaving everything on the field every week and therefore I can’t even get angry when they lose

    For.some reason I feel like they will get a wild card and be bundled out first week. Why I am unsure.

    Phili just add Zach Ertz and Darby to injuries.
    Giants will win I fear.

    I was pretty cranky after their losses to Seattle and Atlanta.

    The Seattle one because I just hate those f**kers and we had the chance to win but missed the field goal.

    The Atlanta one because our defence didn’t turn up in that game after they’ve been outstanding all year.

    Even still, it’s been a wonderful turn around from the last few seasons.

    f**k my heart, another last play victory. Just the emotion at the end when lynch and Shan r embracing. Feels so good. All home field advantage now baby. I’m f**king giddy

    I only got to watch the game today, finally.
    As if I hadn't been through enough stress this week, lol. f**k they know how to get your heart going.
    I'm absolutely ecstatic about this - a win in Seattle, a division title, number one seed in the NFC and a week off.

    Now to sit back and watch the Wildcard teams beat each other up this weekend.

    I'm not one of those people who despises the Patriots or anything, but gee it was good to see them go down to the Dolphins and have to fight it out in the Wildcard round.

    It's about time for their dynasty to end.

    I am - f**k Belicheat, and his cheating bunch of cheats.

    I do respect Tom Brady, though - even if he is a dirty cheater.
