Media and the 49ers

Dude why the locks? I'm just responding directly to the author of the rankings comment about Alex being suspect.

Because there is already a thread about power rankings. that's why the locks.
Preseason Expectations: 8-8

Admit it, no one thought the San Francisco 49ers would make the playoffs this year. First-year head coach, bust at quarterback, washed-up veteran at cornerback...this wasn't a playoff team.

But they are. And then some.

The 49ers are rolling behind that first-year head coach and bust at quarterback. Alex Smith is a contender for Comeback Player of the Year, and Jim Harbaugh is the Coach of the Year, no questions asked. Oh, and the washed-up veteran at cornerback, Carlos Rogers, is playing All-Pro football.

Every move has worked for the 49ers, who are riding an unbelievable eight-game win streak. They are one win away from wrapping up the NFC West.

Grade: A+++++++++++

Actually, I thought they would be in the playoffs...with an 8-8 record. LOL! Am I happy?

For reals man their defense always puts them in position to lose and the Offense just responds.
There isn't a team better equipped than the 49ers to challenge the Packers in the NFC playoffs. They have the type of power running game that can eat the clock and keep the ball out of Rodgers' hands, and with the passing game beginning to click, they can be explosive in their own right. First things first though, they will be fully focused on the Ravens for the Thanksgiving matchup.

NFL.com has us at #2 obviously

I don't think people appreciate what Alex is doing this season. It doesn't matter if it is the system or the calls or whatever. Bottom line is our passing attack is a threat. You can't stack the box because we will take that from you. We are completely willing to throw deep or playpass or whatever. I think the key is because our passing is so efficient teams MUST defend it. This helps the run game tremendously. We have also shown that we will pass from ANY formation or run from ANY formation. in some ways this is very west coast. Hopefully nobody figures this out until it is too late.

Trust me, if some guy on a 49ers fan site "figures this out," every team in the league has figured it out. They get paid to figure things like this out. They just can't stop it.
I used to care about Power Rankings... when I was 12!

Yeah, I heard it. He had Chicago and the Giants 2 and 3 and the Cowboys ahead of us. I think Colin and LaCanfora should go play tennis together.
