Media and the 49ers

We have a not played a team with a high powered passing attack (Green Bay, New England, Houston, Buffalo for example).....and if you look at the rest of our schedule we aren't going to play an elite passing team - not until the playoffs. Cowboys passing game was the best we have faced all year and we lost because their passing overcame us. Philadelphia also, we were getting ripped, bu luckily came back. Looking at the playoffs, Dallas could very well win their division, along with the Packers, and Saints. Wild cards Atlanta, probably. Besides Dallas our only loss, we haven't played and will not play any of these teams for the rest of the regular season. 49ers exact power ranking is difficult to assess, however they are at least in the top 8 or 9.

Oh really? What the hell do you call Detroit?

Whoa bud! one game at a time. Let's think about getting the win against the Browns and think about the next game after that.


Pfft... I'm a fan, not a player. I'm more concerned about how we're going to beat GB in the NFC Championship!

I don't think it does really. Just a guage for the gamblers IMO.

Not really? Try not at all.
How the hell is New Orleans above us. They have a worse record despite an easier schedule. What, because they smacked around, dominated, and blew out the winless Colts? We smacked around, dominated, and blew out one of the stronger teams in the NFC (Tampa) - the same team that beat those very Saints. How is there even a morsel of logic for them being above us???

Drew Brees. Until Alex or any QB on our team becomes elite, teams like NO(Brees), Packers(Rodgers) and NE(Brady) will all be ahead of us.

Mike and Mike, Chris Carter said he wouldn't be surprised if we go 13-3. I don't really care about that but what he also said was interesting. He said that we are built for cold weather late in the season playoff games. He said if we grab home field, it will be difficult for even a team like GB to play on that slushy Candlestick field and we are built for it with what Harbaugh has done.

That will be one thing I will miss about having a new stadium, that slushy field in the playoffs.

Didn't Al Davis used to run the sprinklers for 5-6 hours before games against teams with fast WR's to mud down the field?

Enjoy what? Being the top 3rd of a meaningless ranking?.....I guess....But Id rather kick everybody in the shins.....
Just enjoy being RELEVANT as opposed to the s**t on somebody's shoe... that's all I'm sayin'!
(And we will continue to kick people in the shins, but no need to kick each other in the shins, get me?)

I dont ever recall being the s**t on somebody's shoe.....but I guess Im just not used to people talking good about our team....

Or until the niners hand their asses to them in the playoffs. The truth is most teams are centered around the passing game and when they have to deal with a ball control style team like the niners, they never get into rhythm and can be beat. Those QB's mentioned above all have trouble when you can rush them without sending extra people and none of them have faced the schedule we have so far. I think we have a decent chance to hang with any of those teams and even beat them, we are a more balanced overall team than any of those guys are on, and last time I checked it was a team sport, no matter how bad the NFL is trying to push its star players.

I would agree.........if it were QUARTERBACK power rankings. This is TEAM power rankings. Our TEAM has a better record than their TEAM. Despite a way harder schedule. We were higher than them last week. So crushing a winless team moves them ahead of us? Again, we crushed a WAAAAAAAY better team, a team that New Orleans LOST to. ZERO logic for this decision.

Well that was dumb since Al Davis is the one who had all the track stars.

Let's not forget that A. Smith went toe-to-toe with D. Brees in their game last season, and that was with Singletary/Raye coaching.

Exactly, as fans we have nothing to do but speculate and argue for 165 of the 168 hours in a week. Power rankings are completely pointless, but give us something to discuss and b***h at when the other threads inevitably get stale (another Aldon Smith thread? ...)
I am enjoying the negative whining machines that were hanging around here being basically gone almost as much as the 9ers winning.

Damn Bro, i love it!!! And youre right on point too.

Lets hand their asses to themselves!!!
transitive property doesnt work in real life people, didnt you take critical thinking in college? quit saying "because we beat tampa who beat NO we should be better"
niners had a bye week, no one got to see them play. therefore more people are going to over look the niners in their rankings.
