Washington Redskins (8-7) vs. San Francisco 49ers (6-9)
Bill Walsh Field at Candlestick Park
1:15 pm (PST)
The final weekend of the 2008 NFL season is upon us. At this point in the season I have unfortunately become accustom to the 49ers playing for pride and for draft picks on the final day of the season. The 49ers face off against the Redskins tomorrow as Mike Singletary gets one more chance to make his case to be named head coach. Regardless of a win I believe Singletary deserves and will get the interim tag replaced with official. With a win tomorrow Singletary will be 5-4 since taking over. The 49ers should be able to pull out the win against a struggling Redskins team. Everything rides on Shaun Hill and what type of performance he has. When he is bad, he is really bad (see last weeks game). The Skins are ranked fourth in the league in defense so expect the D to pressure Hill all game to force him to make a mistake. The 49ers chances for a win will be even greater if Frank Gore will play. He is probable to play tomorrow and has been out the last two games with an ankle injury. Gore only needs 22 yards to reach 1,000 yards for the third consecutive year which would be a first in 49ers history
The 49ers will win for their fourth time in five games and finish the season 7-9. The 49ers D will need to contain Clinton Portis and force the Redskins to pass the football. Hill will need to be flawless not giving up any turnovers in order for them to beat the Skins. If Gore plays tomorrow the 49ers will win.
