Niner Noise guides you to what non-SF 49ers team should be your favorite in Week 14.
Look let’s be honest, the odds of the SF 49ers making the playoffs are slim at best. Not nil admittedly, but still slim.
And as much as people don’t want to publicly admit it, most if not all of us find a bandwagon to ride on when we don’t have anything personal at stake.
It’s OK, you can admit it.
Whether it’s a family team or someone a spouse or close friend supports, to a colossal underdog you want to see succeed (also known as the only time a sports team from Philadelphia was the lesser of two evils), to a team you just like because the color scheme and logo work really well. Perhaps you like a certain player from another team and want to see him get a championship. Or at the very least, a trip into the playoffs for the first time.
Some of you will have your bandwagon teams all lined up for playoffs in case San Francisco doesn’t make it, others will not be in this boat.
So if you’re in the latter, you’re in luck! Niner Noise is here to make sure all the teams are nicely lined up so you can see who you should and shouldn’t root for.
We’ll take a look at why and why not a team is suitable for you to go for, if for no other reason than to feel personally committed during the playoffs if the SF 49ers can’t make it.
Let’s take a look at the division leaders, Wild Card teams and playoff-hunting teams entering Week 14 and see where the chips lie.
