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).
