But to avoid being douchey, don't click the link that says "POWER RANKINGS" if it annoys you.

When the subject is constantly at the top of the page it's kinda hard to ignore.

It's like the Alex Smith thread I want to avoid it, but if that's all everyone else is talking about

You do realize that when you comment in the thread it just puts it back at the top..........

Winning is the only measuring stick for success. 6-1 is the second best record in the NFL right now, therefore we should be #2 on rankings.

I think Mike Santo Will vote 49ers #2 this week. I'd put my money we end up at #3.

I agree we should be #2, I think early in the season, records can be deceptive, but at this point, just look at the record each team plays. That's where I don't understand why we're so low. We have done it with a rough schedule.

I like the Power Rankings cuz it's debatable, but What gets me pumped are the vegas odds of winning the SB, we're number 2 there. They have a much bigger reason to be correct, MONEY, were ESPN has a reason to be controversial.

It's funny, We're totally the Boise St. of the NFL in Power Rankings!

Replace Alex Smith's name with Frank Gore and you have yourself a point.

He said "anemic secondary", not "defensive line"

Week 9 6-1 #2 Another week, another victory for the first 49ers team since 1998 to go 6-1. (Sando)
I bet we land at 3 with Pitt at #2
WOW, # 2

No wai.

Oh damn I just done it too. Spread the word. Don't post, it makes the threads stay active.
#2 that says a lot. We will know more after we play the Giants, Ravens, and Steelers. We are now a marked team.
CBS Sportsline has us at 2
ESPN has us at 2
SB Nation has us at 2
Fox Sports Brian Billick has us at 3
Think NFL and it's "experts" are yet to come

I say we go 3-0 against those teams

I agree but that Steelers win wasn't that impressive to me. New England has the 32nd ranked defense. It's easy to look good against sh1tty D. Warren Sapp was right when he said, "The Patriots are Brady, Welker and two Tight Ends. That's it!" Really, the only reason it's impressive to people is because they've been conditioned from past success to view the Patriots as elite...even though they're not.
# 2 BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Reading the ESPN comments, again, the uniformed (or maybe those just in denial) try to use the division as an excuse against us. lol, the haters should be upset, because the resurrection of Camelot is upon us!
