Not much to complain about. A huge win over Tampa (might have to re-think that ‘West Coast Killers’ mantra) and aside from Morgan’s broken ankle things are looking pretty damn good.
It’s only week 5, but as of right now it looks like there’s a fairly clear path to the NFC West title. St Louis is in a big hole, and Seattle and Arizona don’t look to have their QB issues solved quite as well as originally thought. So… is the division now the 49ers to lose?
Personally, I think we need a few more division games to decide that, and division games aren’t scheduled until the later part of the season. So we may actually be entering something of a period of limbo here. In theory, the Niners could lose every non-division game from here out, take down St Louis, Seattle and the Cards and still make the playoffs.
Still, no complaints about 4-1. With the early victories, they’ve got a nice cushion, and it has been quite a while since we could say that about this team.
