    Saints win out (only tough game at Tennessee)

    Vikings at home beat Green Bay
    Seattle at home beat 49ers or Rams beat 49ers

    49ers lost their talented center for the season

    Also Sherman and Ford are injured.

    That defense may become an issue going forward. Saints showed the blueprint.

    49ers won't win out.

    I'm worried about Cousins getting the job done although the Vikings are playing as well as any team in the NFL.

    It just don't stop. Now Sheldon Rankins will probably be out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury.

    I talked about the d-line depth earlier this season. Losing Davenport and Rankins hurts mostly in the fourth quarter, because up to now, the rotation has been keeping them fresh against offensive linemen who had mostly been playing every snap. I think we're still very good with Hendrickson in Davenport's spot, and Onyemata for Rankins, but we've lost the depth advantage. What really becomes urgent now is that we get Klein and Alonso back. Too much talent lost up front without all these guys.
