I agree. But I wouldn't put my money on it. They lost to the Seahawks at home. What "should" be or whatever is irrelevant, I'd bet we stay #2. But I'll be happy if they jump us. If any Niners look at it as an insult, extra fuel would be good.
have to be #2. leggo

true, but a lot of polls had the Steelers ahead of us at 2 and us at 3, which I think is fine. But would it make sense to leave the Steelers at 2 after they lost? And I don't know if the Ravens are consistent enough to say they are the 2nd best team in the league (though I fully expect a lot of PR to have Ravens at 2). Pats lost again. So who is 2? Texans? NYG? I don't see any reason to move any of those teams ahead of us, though I know some lists will.

Its all fine, its all academic, but if we were #3 before we're either going to be leapfrogged by teams that we have a better record than or we're going to move up.
#2 will be our ceiling until the fudge packers lose...

#2 now. Pats, Steelers drop, Ravens become #3, and Cincy manages to get into the top 6-7.

Even they were to lose one they'd still be in first. We'll have settle this in the playoffs.
crazy how cincy is playing since we beat them. it would be funny as hell to go to the superbowl and beat them for a 3rd time after knocking out GB in the conference championship game

i like their team, nice defense and dalton plays much better then suppossed for a rookie. they have a nice core of young talent and could add quite more with two 1st rounders next year. nevertheless, would be big fun to beat them in s SB
Right now it's fine to have the Steelers at #2 as it gives the 9ers more incentive to knock them off toward the end of the season. Pitt has been a good team for a while and deserve more recognition than the upstart 9ers--all the better! With Baltimore, NY and Pitt as the three remaining teams with high potential the 9ers are in the catbird seat. Harbaugh can play with managing the games toward the playoffs, getting more people involved and practicing trouble areas. It would be great to be #4 or #5 going into the playoffs. Who would have thought?
We're probably gonna stay at 3 and the Giants are probably gonna leapfrog us to #2 since they beat the Patriots on the road. And of course, the Niners play in a weak division

I still love when I hear that coming from other team's fans and ESPN analysts because you then know they don't have a clue or have watched the 9ers play this year. Just looking at the first 8 games of the 9ers schedule should be enough for someone not to say that the 9ers are playing well because they are in the West.

It reminds me of the late 1980s when UNLV was in the Big West. Everybody said UNLV basketball isn't that good...but then they failed to realize that the team would dominate non-Big West opponents including powerhouse teams.

If the 9ers beat a team, that team is not as good as first thought...or they had a bad week. the 9ers have to keep this up to gain respect...which is fine for keeping the motivation up!
