The NFL regular season is in the books!

The Athletic’s Matt Barrows joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Monday morning to share some behind-the-scenes stories from the San Francisco 49ers’ locker room, look ahead to Saturday’s Wild Card round matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, and discuss where the 2022 49ers rank among the teams that he has covered.

Topics Discussed:

  • Matt talks about his exclusive behind-the-scenes experience in the 49ers locker room during halftime of December 11th’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
  • San Francisco will face the Seahawks on Saturday in a Wild Card Weekend matchup between the NFC West foes.
  • “I think that the talent disparity between these two teams is huge.”
  • Barrows, who has covered the 49ers for 20 years, contemplates where this 2022 team fits in among the best he has ever covered.
  • “This team, from top to bottom, is at the top, with that 2011-12 team right behind them.”
