Well, SF lost to the horrible Cardinals and John Skelton.  Could it be that that defense is wearing down?  I don't know where to find the numbers, but it wouldn't surprise me if of all the top defenses left in the playoff hunt, the niners' has seen more snaps than any.

Actually, the SF defense has been pretty efficient.

Me too.  And I was surprised to see how mediocre Denver's defense appears to be.  Just new they were behind the Tebow effect.

Nah, I've been watching the stats (not that it helps my fucking pick 'ems) and knew the Broncos were mediocre on D.  Still, a vast improvement from where they were. 

Consider who the Tebow-Broncs have played:  10/23 - @Miami, then a total mess; 10/30 - Detroit, lost 10-45; 11/06 - @Oakland, second game for Palmer in new system, Raiders up and down and in weak AFCW; 11/13 - @KC, bad team in weak division; 11/17 - Jets, shitty offense; 11/27 - @SD, team in decline, weak division; 12/4 @ Minn, terrible team; 12/11 - Chi, no Cutler, no Forte.

Lions and Bears the only remotely decent teams there, and the Bears are screwed without Cutler and Forte.  3/7 against AFCW.  What's so special that mere luck doesn't explain?

Interesting choice of words in your article title, Shefty.  Ya douche.

A one to two game suspension for a game hit is fucking redonkulous, BTW.
