49ers gets some expert-pick love

By Bill Williamson

The experts have spoken and the San Francisco 49ers are getting some respect.

Two of 12 panelists believe the 49ers will take it a step further and win the Super Bowl. Only four of the panelists think the 49ers will win the NFC West over Seattle, but 12 say think the 49ers will make the postseason.

Kevin Seifert is a particular favorite of 49ers’ fans. Seifert (no relation to George) picked the team ti win the Super Bowl and for quarterback Colin Kaepernick to win the MVP award.

Meanwhile, in a conference call with Bay Area media, Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews said he has not spent any time with practice squad quarterback Scott Tolzien. The Packers just picked him up after he was with the 49ers for the past two years.
