Just as the Super Bowl goes through Peyton or Brady for the AFC (regardless where the game is played), chances are you're going to see Eli or Rogers in the NFC.
I always thought of Eli as more of a "doesn't lose the game" QB than one that wins for you. Feel the same way about Alex Smith. Personally I think that is all the 49ers needed this season, but time will tell.
