I wouldn't say I'm surprised that the team is having success. I expected that to happen after Harbaugh was hired. I was very confident that he would fix the team... I just didn't expect it to happen so quickly.
The thing that I find a bit surreal is how much praise the team is getting in the media.
The defense is considered the best in the league by almost everyone. It's not even really debated... it's like the defense is at that level where nobody questions it. I think 49ers fans question it more than most journalists do.
Then there's the power rankings where it seems like only one guy out of a dozen will ever rank them second place instead of first.
The most surreal thing by far is seeing Alex Smith ranked in the running for League MVP. Not just from one source, but multi0ple sources.
It's f**king bizarro world!
