Yes, I'd say 5-6 wins at best... Not every team is going to be as easy as the Rams. You have no chance to win against Seattle, probably will split with Arizona and with the Rams, that's two wins... I don't know the rest of you schedule, but 3-4 more wins should be the usual.
Look at it this way:
If the 49ers SOMEHOW (major upset) beat Philly this weekend... who else do they have coming up? Their next two games would be against Kansas City (minus Trent Green) and the imploding Oakland Raiders!
If the Niners upset the Eagles, they could very well be off to a 4-1 start. I have a hard time believing they'll lose 10 or 9 after that.
This weekend's game is essential to the season's success.
