Media and the 49ers

Niners will be #1 when it really matters because Greenbay is fake and ghey on defense and the patriots are just fake and ghey period.
And to think I used to be happy just to see the Niners in the top HALF of the Power Rankings! Any where in the top 5 just feels great!

#2 according to Peter King.

Given that GB has played one of the easiest schedules so far and we've played one of the hardest, I just don't think it should be considered such a slam dunk that GB has played more impressively than us this year.

Their defense is nowhere near as good as ours, their offensive line is injury prone as well. I think if people would pull Rodgers cock out of their collective mouths, they would see that GB has some very exploitable weaknesses. If you can get pressure on Rodgers without sacrificing coverage, I think they can be contained. Hell the Rams contained them in the second half of their last game. There are no really scary teams out there, they all have weaknesses.

Offensively I think GB has played more impressively and consistently than us.

Secretly I enjoy the new higher rankings , but I have also enjoyed our being a fairly stealthy team this season too.

Or do the Saints leapfrog us?

Still cant believe how well we are doing. This is amazing. In Harbaugh we trust!

We will drop East coast bias

There's more to football than offense. GB is outscoring opponents by less than 1 more point per game than us. And they've played all softies except the Saints.

After tonight's Raven's game, we should not look over any team

This is part of football. Every team loses games they should have won. I'm sure we will drop a couple more games this year like we did to Dallas and NinerTalk will have it's meltdown. The good teams are the ones that recover from these loses.
Stop with the power rankings!!! They mean poop. Nothing. Who cares.

I hope not. Under the radar is fine with me.

Will this "under the radar" BS ever go away? We are not under any NFL team's radar. I can't believe people seriously sit there and think to themselves "man, I really hope nobody puts us in the top 3 in power rankings because it sure does work to our advantage when FANS of other teams don't know we're good."

We aren't fooling any NFL coaching staff by staying out of the top of the power rankings.
After the Monday Nighter, the only thing I know for sure...

Niners > Ravens

We're a faster younger version on defense and I would argue that we have just as good an offense, if not better with the return of Braylon. I take Vernon over Boldin and Gore/Hunter over Rice

And are people really that convinced Flacco is better than Alex? Looks like a wash to me

Can't wait for (American) Thanksgiving

Peter King has us at two I think. Whatever that's worth. I just want us to handle business in Cleveland. That's all we need to worry about right now. Beat the Browns!!!
