This is addressed to everyone. Which team do you think has the best chance of going undefeated next season and why then?

49ers if they get by Week 2 undefeated they have a lovely schedule and they are a team with no holes.....other than their coach of course!

The NFC East three playoff teams, no team bellow 500. the top seed in the NFC as well as the Superbowl champion.

The AFC North, One playoff team, two teams at 10 wins
.
The Colts 2nd top seed in the AFC at 13-3 and the third seed in the AFC the Chargers at 11-5.

They played 8 teams that made the playoffs that season in the regular season.

What?

No way.

Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers (-4) (barely favored)
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks (-2.5) (undedog)
Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers (-7.5)
San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams (+4) (barely favored)
Houston Texans at San Francisco 49ers (-5.5)
Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (-10)
San Francisco 49ers at Tennessee Titans (+7)
San Francisco 49ers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (+10.5) @ London, England (crazy trip, anything can happen)
BYE
Carolina Panthers at San Francisco 49ers (-6)
San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints (Pick)
San Francisco 49ers at Washington Redskins (+1.5) (barely favored)
St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers (-7.5)
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers (-2.5) (tecnically pick em')
San Francisco 49ers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (pick em')
Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers (-3.5) (almost pick 'em)

Facing the Seahwks twice, the Falcons, @ New Orleans, traveling to London, @ D.C., and the Packers to start the year...

Niners (as good as they may be) are not one of the teams I'd gamble with their schedule. CK is still young and that D wasn't all that toward the end of the year...Seattle did embarras them.

Interesting. Thanks. Yeah, like I said before...having a weak division isn't as great an asset today with only 6 games as it was back for the Dolphins.

They will have the best record in the NFL and home games they will win. Pack is easy they whipped us twice last season and not much has changed. Skins are unknown due to RGIII. Two big challenges, Qwest and the Superdome. Plus with the Cyborg at QB if anyone can the 49ers can.

Yeah but teams change - year to year - what doesn't change is the only few elite QBs in the league who can carry a game themselves. That's what makes a schedule difficult IMO. What QB you are playing...who knows how the rest of the squad is...but elite is elite.

Rodgers, Brees, Russell Wilson, RGIII if he is healthy. I'd rather play other teams that people think are stacked but have mediocre signal callers.

I like some of those made up lines! Only -4 vs us! -6 vs Panthers. I think the 49ers beatdown on those spreads. And only 2.5 against Hawks at home?! 49ers are the better team so it will be close to -7

They are from Cantor Gaming which operates several sports books in Las Vegas, including the Venetian, the Tropicana and the Palms. Old school gamblers.
