SANTA CLARA -- Barring a late-season collapse by the Seattle Seahawks or some unlikely outcomes in the playoffs, the 49ers' final game at Candlestick Park is next Monday night.

The Seahawks would have to lose their final two regular-season games — they lost only two of their first 14 games -- and the 49ers would need to win their final two games for the 49ers to win the NFC West and be assured at least one home game in the NFC Playoffs.

For now, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is like most others in approaching his team's game against the Atlanta Falcons as the final one at Candlestick Park. The 49ers are slated to play their home games at their new stadium in Santa Clara beginning next season.

Given that, Harbaugh said he and everyone else employed by the 49ers are hell-bent upon going out with a victory.

"It's the last game at Candlestick, and we don't want to be the guys that screw up the last game at Candlestick," Harbaugh said. "These guys will come back 20-25 years from now and they want to have a good memory of winning at Candlestick."

Harbaugh said he first attended a game at Candlestick Park when he was 16 and his father coached at Stanford.

"I remember sitting there (and thinking), 'It's not this cold back in Michigan.' We had just moved to California," Harbaugh said. "They said it was going to be cold. They had us kids in our warm jackets, but it was still cold."

Harbaugh also recalled his first game at Candlestick Park as a player, when he was a backup for the Chicago Bears.

"We got beat," Harbaugh said. "We got beat pretty bad. ... The starter threw like three, maybe four, interceptions in the first half, and they inserted me in the second half. We didn't win the game."
