PFT on NBCSN takes closer look at 49ers, Patriots, more

Tom Brady AP

Wednesday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN delves into a potential Super Bowl matchup that has never actually happened — 49ers vs. Patriots.

This year, it could.  Which would mean New England quarterback Tom Brady would be going against the team he cheered for as a child.

He’s far from being a child now, and he’s 10 years removed from his last Super Bowl ring.  The 49ers are 20 years removed from theirs.  So today’s poll question asks which of the two is more likely to get a crack at another title to cap the 2014 season.

Tune in at 5:30 p.m. ET.  And stick around for Fantasy Football Live at 6:30 p.m. ET.

    NE vs SF in the SB would be one of the highest-rated SBs of all time.

    For all you Seahawks fans who are new to the NFL:

    NE = New England Patriots. They play in the AFC (American Football Conference)

    SF = San Francisco. They are in your division and play in the NFC (National Football Conference).

    SB = Super Bowl…the title game which your Seahawks *won last season.

    Voted NE, just because the NFC is so much stronger than the AFC right now. Yeah, the 49ers have a solid shot, but they play in an utterly brutal division and a tougher conference. If Peyton gets injured, the AFC West is pretty thin, the South is Andrew Luck (Indy’s roster, not so good), and who in the East is threatening the Patriots? The North is looking full of decent teams, but nobody dominant.

    If the 49ers played in the AFC, they’d be an easy SB pick.

    New England may be there in the end. Santa Clara…. I don’t think so.

    I think a team will surprise everyone this year and be in the SB. Maybe Colts or Bears.

    With Welker back on NE, this would be a different game last year.
    As long as Gronk sits until playoffs, it will be a different game for Peyton.
    Given the schedules I think it gets played in NE this year as well.

    I think it’s hilarious people think the Pats will get to the Super Bowl this year. If they played in the NFC, they wouldn’t even make the playoffs. You guys should send Christmas Baskets to the Bills, Jets, and Dolphins.
