The grind of coast-to-coast travel was sufficient that the 49ers considered — albeit briefly — staying East after beating the Packers with a trip to Charlotte the following week.
But because they’ve been so successful on the road in back-to-back weeks, they’re sticking with their new routine even though the flight’s much shorter this week.
According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers will fly into Seattle Friday afternoon, a day earlier than they normally arrive at games in their time zone.
“It’s been fun,” 49ers guard Mike Iupati said. “We don’t mind the trips. We don’t mind the routine. Come home from a win on Sunday, leave for another one on Friday, and come home the following Sunday. Hopefully we can come home from Seattle with another one.”
Considering the fact their coach is willing to wear $8 pants because he always does, it’s not surprise they’re sticking with what’s gotten them here.
