Each team in the NFC West division has at least three wins and is separated by one game or less in the standings.

Could the San Francisco 49ers’ trade for All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey act as the difference in who ends up at the top of the division come postseason time?

This morning on The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross, former NFL quarterback Sean Salisbury joined the show to break down the recent week of football, dissect the current state of the NFC West, share his thoughts on the 49ers’ trade for McCaffrey, and much more.

Topics Discussed:

  • Is the city of Houston more of a baseball city (Astros) or a football city (Texans)?
  • Are the 49ers still in line to make a run at the postseason?
  • What is the 49ers’ record when they trail by 3 points or more in the fourth quarter?
  • “I still think that the 49ers will win the division.”
  • Salisbury gives his opinion on the Christian McCaffrey trade
  • “McCaffrey gives them a whole different look.”
  • Does Kyle Shanahan have the makings of a long-term head coach?

Listen to The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross from 6 – 9 a.m. PST, Monday through Friday right here on Sactown Sports 1140.
