    I hate it when the league thinks we're good! Teams get up to play us regardless, but when we're hyped, they really get charged up to beat us.

    anytime we are decent we are hyped.... whats new. I stated this over the Summer. Our players are hyped and hurt us in free agency because it drives up salaries based upon hype....IMO

    Niners look like the best team in the NFC.

    So beating the Dolphins and Cardinals gets you to #5?

    Yea, but in the playoffs everyone has to play against the same type of intensity, so it helps team who are used to it from the regular season. The teams that go under the radar sometimes falter in playoff atmosphere.

    Packers, our next real challenge is ranked 7th. I have that October game circled on my calendar.

    Do you not think the Cowboys are good? If they really are, it shouldn't matter if their opponent gets charged up to play them. You must not think the Cowboys are a playoff team.

    I agree, with Breeze out that game looks a lot more winnable. Green Bay's defense looks surprisingly good so far. They should be a great test for us.

    As does Devin Smith and Donovan Wilson. Randall Cobb should at least have a good idea what to do vs. the Packers. He'll be able to clue in the defensive staff about their offense, as well.

    I posted this in another thread earlier.

    As a whole I think we're pretty good. The offense seems to be very good and much improved. Time will tell us for sure if that is indeed the case as we get deeper into the schedule.
    Our defense is scaring me a little and that may come back to haunt us down the stretch. I do think they aren't bad and can definitely improve. Again, time will tell us more.

    But to judge the team as we are playing right now, I'd say we're are, at the very least, a playoff team.
    And if we maintain our new found offensive prowess and can improve some on D, we're a legit Super Bowl contender.

    Need to see how we handle the next 3-4 games. We will be without a starter at safety and WR.

    I would have to concur with that assessment. The Cowboys have games on their schedule before their BYE week that will be a great challenge. The Packers and Eagles will reveal much about what this team really is.

    Not sure how Chicago is in the top 10. They are a .500 team with Trubisky at QB. Their defense is elite, but they need to drag their QB to wins.

    I think 4 is a very fair spot for this team. Rams, Chiefs and Pats ahead, sounds about right until we (or they) prove otherwise.
