I sorta thought the rankings meant that if teams played each other now, who would win.

That list looks about right.

So if the Rams beat the Saints, and the Niners cant beat the Saints, then this Sunday........

Nice to be up there in the rankings, but doesn't mean anything.....a #10 seed could win SB for all we know. Its all about how much you turn it up in the playoffs.

Everyone remember the 2007 Patriots? Thats why I won't be surprised if GB loses in the playoffs against us or even the Saints. The saints can outscore them and I believe we have a defense that can keep their endzone trips limited.

Pete Prisco at CBS has us at number 3. Ravens move up to 2.

You'll have a few outliers, but I think the general consensus from the national sportswriters is that we were competitive to the end but lost to a very good team that has been outstanding at home. Factor in the short week and yet another long trip to the East coast.

There's a general lack of commentary about the game other than we lost (were due for a loss) to a very good team on the road. No negative trends, no harbingers of doom.

That's the takeaway from this week's power rankings and that's a good thing.

Are you joking, we lose on a short week, across the country, and now all of a sudden we can't beat teams anymore? Get a grip, we are really good at stopping the pass.
still have the 2nd best record, i say no further than 3

agree with this
3rd. At least according to ESPN.

Wait, but, the Niners beat the Cardinals, and the Rams couldn't beat the Cardinals...
I won't move the 49ers down too far off a loss to the Ravens going from West Coast to East Coast on a short week. The Steelers matchup at home in Week 15 remains the only real challenge to the 49ers with the rest of their games coming against the inept NFC West. If San Fran wins out vs. the NFC West, a 13-3 record would nail down at least the No. 2 seed in the NFC. It will be interesting to see how coach Jim Harbaugh will keep his team engaged down the stretch.

Playoff Chances: 99.9 percent

The San Francisco 49ers can clinch a playoff berth with a win this week. Facing the St. Louis Rams should guarantee the 49ers will be in the playoffs in 2011.

San Francisco makes a small move down this week after losing a tough game to the Baltimore Ravens—nothing to be ashamed of. If you had told anyone before the season that the 49ers would be 9-2 right now, they should have laughed at you. But here we are, and the 49ers look damn good.

Jim Harbaugh's team has to be a little worried about how easy it was for the Ravens to disrupt its entire offense with the pass rush. The scheme needs to be better, as does the execution, if the 49ers are going to make a playoff run.

He gave the Bears all the credit for being the one team who could match up against the Packers... Noting their great defense, great special teams, and dominant run game.


He has several times that the Niners are also built to beat GB in GB. But like many he still doesn't trust Ales Smith. And nobody will til he proves it in the playoffs. smith just has to go prove it and you will see folks opinions change. He called Aaron Rodgers overrated last year til he proved it in the playoffs Then he gave him his props.
