Now that Kurt Warner is expected to retire, the 49ers can proceed with plans to win the division and march toward Super Bowl 45 in Arlington, Texas.

It's a foregone conclusion, right?

I'm having some fun with this angle, but let's face it. This becomes the No. 1 debate on the NFC West blog the minute Warner makes his retirement official. Seahawks and Rams fans have to like their chances more as well, but the 49ers appear closest to overtaking Arizona for the division title.

The 49ers swept the Cardinals last season and that was with Warner under center for Arizona. They were 8-8, pushing Minnesota and Indianapolis to the brink, both on the road.

As I wrote during the season, "This division is the Cardinals' to lose until the minute Warner walks away."

Who wins the division in 2010 if Warner isn't playing?
