Power rankings during the season are fun to read, debate, and argue, but personally, I think the discussion can get out of hand at times.
Give me a number one ranking at the end of the season after the team wins a Super Bowl, and then it'll be fun to start chirping about things.
That being said, I enjoy the fact that we are high up on a lot of people's lists. As for the ESPN power ranking (the one I follow the most), I especially like the fact that we are a relatively quiet "number 2". There's more noise made about the Steelers, Ravens, Packers, and Patriots than the 49ers.
