Secondly, this team has as much talent as all the top tier teams (including the Packers and Patriots). We play a different style ball, but when you compare the entire rosters there is not much of a difference.
There is absolutely no reason we can't be the #1 team in the league. Our strength of schedule is superior than all of the top teams. We did our best work on the road, on the east coast. We're an overtime away from being undefeated.
I just watched a Christian Ponder-led Vikings team nearly upset the Packers. The Ravens lost to a wretched Jacksonville side, in prime time. And the Saints lost to the very same Tampa Bay team we annihilated. And it can be argued that the Patriots defense is one of the league's 10 worst.
Point is, for every reason somebody gives that the 49ers should not be considered #1...there are just as many reasons for the other top teams.
When you look at the sum of the parts and the remaining schedule, the San Francisco 49ers could soon be considered the top team in the NFL.
This this and this x 100. From beginning to end great post. I couldn't agree more with you on everything you said above.
i second that! great post
...and too add on more thing, i'm so sick of reading "i got a bad feeling about the browns game" "cleveland has a really good defense"
if there is ever one game to feel completely confident about as a fan, it's this game. cleveland is f**king awful, they beat the dolphins, colts & seacocks. we are going to destroy them, end of story.

Don't get me wrong, I definitely see us winning, but not destroying them. We're just not going to throw down 40 or 50 points on them unless our D gives it do our offense in the red zone multiple times or get a defensive TD or two. Their D is pretty good and our O is decent. Our D is dominant and their O is fairly weak.
I don't expect them to score much, maybe 13 points, but I don't expect us to score a ton either, maybe mid-twenties.
I expect a solid win, but not an overwhelmingly dominant beat down.
