Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Jim Schwartz needs to be fired now. They went from leading a division at a time with no Jay Cutler, no Aaron Rodgers. Sure, McCown and Flynn have kept them in it, but the Lions have had ample opportunity to put it away and are now eliminated.

I feel like Timby watching the Bears.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I was glad to see the Cowboys help us out yesterday. They cut it awfully close though...

The Bears...geez...play defense much?

I'm sure the Falcons/49ers game looked good when they were scheduling, but now...

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The Bears let too many good defensive backups get away in the offseason, then had massive injuries. But still, 54 points???

Overall the team has no sense of urgency. The rest of the fucking North lost & they couldn't take advantage.

And I thought the NFC East was a wasteland of suckiness.

Luckily for the Packers, every other team in the NFC North is as inept as they are.

The Vikings sure stunk up the field against the Bengals. Next week both they and the Metrodome can be put out of their misery. If the Packers weren't playing for the division title at the same time, I'd be tempted to go to the Vikings game next week just to have one last look at that dump.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Redskins. Why do they bother? They could have won that game. They blew it AGAIN.

Yay for Denver winning again, though! At least I have one team worth rooting for.

Per Adam Schefter, Tony Romo is out for the season with a severe back injury that was suffered during yesterday's game. Kyle Orton will attempt to lead the Cowboys to the playoffs.

That, uh, sucks for Dallas.

If you need me I'll be in a drunken coma. Just doesn't seem fair after yesterday.

You were saying?

I honestly almost don't want to see them get home-field in the playoffs after that. I can't imagine a better way to say goodbye to Candlestick. Well. . . maybe as champions.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Great finish. I don't care about either of these teams, but I was actually pulling for the Falcons just so Arizona would still have a chance to make the playoffs (I think Arizona deserves it this year, and it's a travesty they may lose out).

My girlfriend wanted to switch off the game, but I insisted on finishing it out, and were we rewarded! That was a great on-side kick, and an unreal pick-6. Gotta feel for the Falcons fans last night. But what a way for Candlestick to go out.

I was hoping Atlanta would take the 49ers down too.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

My lack of knowledge of the rules of football is showing here, but: Does the 49ers' victory mean there could be postseason games at the Stick? Does it hold up the date of demolition (assuming there was one)?

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

To answer your second question: Of course it would.

And, to answer your main question, I'm not positive. The winners of their divisions with the best two records host home games. The Seahawks and 12-3 and the 49ers are 11-4. If the Seahawks lose next week and the 49ers win, they'll have the same record. The winner in that case (if I'm not mistaken) is determined by whoever was better head to head. In this case, that's also tied, so it would be by the team that did better against division opponents. In this case, they'd be tied there too. I don't know the tie breaker after that.

However, NFL.com says Seattle has clinched a playoff spot, but it doesn't say they've clinched the division, so that tells me the 49ers can still win a division spot.
