    The 49ers did not make themselves available to the media on Sunday. Head coach Jim Harbaugh held a post-game newsconferrence on Monday where he spoke of pride and confidence in his team.

    "We have more than enough time to get ready for this team. There's  going to be a need for a laser-like focus here. We really need to focus on  our task here," Harbaugh said. "It's a big game. It's a  great opponent, that's where our thoughts will be."   

    Harbaugh's team has to defend its home field one more time and  said the capacity crowd at Candlestick made a difference.

    "Our fans turned that stadium into a fortress. That's as good as  it's going to get," he said. "We got 70,000 in a city behind us. It felt  good. It felt like an advantage."

    Harbaugh was hunkered down at the team's Santa Clara headquarters Sunday afternoon watching the Giants/Packers game with his coaching staff.

    The San Francisco 49ers will have home field advantage in next weekend's NFC championship game. Kick off is Sunday at 3:30 p.m. at the Stick.

    The New York Giants handily beat the Grean Bay Packers 37-20 on Sunday and that means the Giants will be traveling to San Francisco.

    If the Packers had won, the Niners would have had to fly to Green Bay for the game.

    The team announced late Sunday that tickets for the game will go on sale Wednesday. Season ticket holders will get the first crack at a seat starting at 10 a.m. Then at 1 p.m. sales will open to the general public. There will be a limit of four tickets per order and seats will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.  

    The team said all tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster at this link, or by phone

    at 1-800-745-3000.  Tickets will NOT be sold directly through the 49ers or at Candlestick Park.

    Much of the Bay Area is still talking about Saturday's

    game at Candlestick park.

    Quarterback Alex Smith completed a 14-yard touchdown pass to Vernon Davis with just 9 seconds left on the clock.  The 49ers gave the sell out home crowd a thrilling 36-32 victory.
