Forty-Niners Now Need Help From Others to Save Playoff Hopes

Thursday night was not a good night for the Niners, and because of it, the team needs quite a bit of help if they are going to be playing past January 2nd.

If Seattle and St. Louis both win this weekend, the Niners’ slim playoff hopes are officially gone. Because, the Seahawks and Rams face off in the final game of the season in Seattle—which means one of them would wind up with eight victories and the division title in the awful NFC West.

Even if San Francisco (5-9) wins at St. Louis and home against Arizona on Jan. 2, it might not be enough. The 49ers need help.

And, after an embarrassing 34-7 loss at San Diego on Thursday night, coach Mike Singletary is contemplating yet another quarterback switch from Alex Smith back to Troy Smith. Sounds like at this point, even Singletary knows that the season is lost, and is grasping at straws just to try to save the season.
