NFL Power Rankings this week...my prediction

Looks like everyone has us in the middle of the pack. Still flying under the radar a bit. Let's see if we can keep proving it.

I'd rather fly under the radar the entire season

Yeah, and we just beat a "bad 1-3 team."


Cincy was a terrible team when the 9ers beat them now they seem to have become decent in just a week.

This is how it works.

If you beat a team, their record becomes worse, therefore you beat a "bad" team and it doesn't prove anything.
If you lose to a "good" team, it doesn't matter how close the game was because "a loss is a loss".

Therefore, records and power rankings don't matter as much as how well your team is PLAYING. Our team is playing pretty well, that's all we really have to go by.
I wasn't impressed when we were 2-0 under Nolan because of the way we won. We didn't play well. But now, Alex Smith is making plays instead of throwing games away, and we have an incredibly good front seven, who is playing better than ever DESPITE the stats (maybe the stats back it up too).
These things are MUCH more fun when you're among the league's best.

We're a top 10 team. Make it happen power rankers.

Hard to stay under the radar when you are blowing the damn thing up along with everything else in sight. These 49ers dudes are in full blown f**k em' and nuke em' mode now.

When the Rams had that Super Bowl run, they were blowing everything up too. But it wasn't until mid-season before people started to care, and it wasn't until they WON the Super Bowl when people called them "for real".

Its going to take a LOT for us to change perception, especially with Alex Smith (no offense to him, but the perception has been setting in stone for 6 years).
We won't get that high. But if we beat Detriot we will. I really think the Morgan loss is big. Alex trusts him as a possesion WR and go to guy on 3rd downs. I hope we can win without him.

This. Remember there is a HUGE West Coast bias because of the East Coast Writers.

I would agree with that. I'm just saying there really isn't a radar anymore, they blew it up. The people who know football, don't need no stinkin' power rankings or any other blah blah from the punditry to know how good a team is (or bad).

I have a problem with this "under the radar"/East coast bias thing. I have been reading about it for years on Seachickens forums. They sound like a bunch of f**king whiners for it. Lets not be whiner's...it's not Harbaugh's style. Let the W's do the talking and f**k em' all.

We are the Stealthy 49ERS ........... We fly undetected under all radar.
I still think we're flying under the radar, even though we destroyed the Bucs, most highlights I saw talked about the Raiders' victory and how it was dedicated to their owner. So, maybe other teams haven't noticed us just yet. We have a lot of momentum going into Detroit, let's see how they do on a short week against our Niners even though it's their home game. Before the Bucs game was even played, I predicted we'd beat Tampa Bay, but lose to Detroit. Now, I'd give us 50/50 chances and could pull off the upset. Geez, in recent years, I'd never consider the Lions as a threat, now they're legit...go figure.
we best be in the top 10 after beatin the bucs ass
