49ers have slim playoff hopes

The 49ers hope to keep their slim playoff hopes alive this Sunday in Philadelphia against the first-place Eagles.

Philly has one of the most dynamic weapons in the NFL with former Cal star DeSean Jackson being an electrifying wide receiver and punt returner.

Anybody that can get Eagles head coach Andy Reid off the ground, jumping with excitement, is doing something right.

The 49ers have to try to keep pace with the eagle's potent attack.

49er running back Frank Gore says "I feel that we got a good offense too and when we are on the same page, and we go out there and play like how we did Monday night, we got a great chance of winning."

However, head coach Mike Singletary says "We're just swinging. We're just fighting, we're just scratching, and we have to put our best game together in order to go out there and try to win the football game."

The 49ers have to win and hope.
