Home is not so tough, 49ers only tough one. The road is brutal.

I don't think its that tough of a schedule. Also think it doesn't really matter we have lost to some of the worst and beat some of the best no matter who you play in the NFL there are no easy games.

I think we all agree here, a schedule is just that, a schedule. For as awful as our defense was they did in fact show up a few games in rare form.

Also keep in mind, having Atlanta on our schedule, and Atlanta having us twice is a 12 game swing in the strength of schedule.

Atlanta's schedule is ranked 15th.

I think we all know Atlanta's 2012 record was grossly inflated and our 2012 record isn't a good indicator of our 2013 projections.

Who are you worried about on the road? Seattle? I am not worried about the Jets, Patriots, Rams, or Bears.

We are not going to play all four of them in late November/December. My guess is we get pats week 6 or 7 due to the record, and jets maybe in September. I think they want us to go to Seattle and Chicago in December due to the defenses.

First half predictions(weeks 1-8)
Buffalo
New England
New York Jets
Tampa Bay
Carolina
Atlanta
Arizona
Mid Point(9-10)
St.Louis
Atlanta
Second half(11-17)
Miami
Tampa Bay
Carolina
Dallas
Chicago
San Francisco
Seattle

In first half TB is due for a win against us believe it or not, we are due for one against Carolina, and usually our first games against Atlanta are at home prior to week 10. So I'd say 2-1 there, bills and jets we should beat thats 4-1. Arizona as well makes it 5-1 with New England being a tossup as it really could go either way. If Rodgers is better than Brady, considering that GB has an even better defense we should be able to hang tough with them like the packers. On paper its a loss At mid point, I feel we should beat the rams since we lost last meeting and know to take them serious this time. And lets say we split with falcons again 6-3, assuming we go to Atlanta week 10. In second half, I think at this point is when a team like Miami begins to unravel I say we win thats 7-3. The second games against Carolina and Tampa Bay will have opposite results 8-4. Then the tougher ones and all are tough but SF is asking for us to win the most, 9-4. It is important to at least win one of Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, and New England. Dallas is at home but I just think of the last time we played them in the dome and it wasnt pretty. We wouldnt want to play them if they are down thats for sure.

No such thing as "due" for a win.
