The San Francisco 49ers are one of the trendy picks to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, and possibly even win it all. We've seen a slew of predictions already, some of them as obvious as predicting that the sun will come up tomorrow while others are downright ridiculous.
The 49ers WILL make the playoffs this year, they WILL win their division, they WILL win at least one postseason game and they WILL establish themselves once again as one of the premier teams in the NFL. But, in the words of Coach Harbaugh, these predictions are "masters of the obvious." What follows are some things that will happen during the season that most people would laugh at, but will come true this year.
So if you have friends who aren't privy to the wide world of Bleacher Report, feel free to claim these outlandish statements as your own. You'll look like a first-rate clairvoyant at the end of the season. I recommend starting each of these claims to your friends with the words, "You heard it here first."
