Chad Wetzel had this to say upon reading my 27-7 score prediction for the San Francisco 49ers' game against St. Louis: "I'm hoping you think the 7 you give the Rams isn't from a rushing TD."

That's the sort of drama 49ers fans could surely do without. I don't expect the team to face such a scenario, particularly against the Rams. But I'd love to be there if it happened.
