If the 49ers blow out the Rams and improve to 5-0, should they be ranked # 2 behind the Patriots in the NFL power rankings?

Or do you go by strength of schedule and put them below the Saints and Packers?

    I ranked Frisco number 2 when they were 4-0 and Kansas City lost their first game. Some of the sports writers who make up those silly power rankings have been ranking the Sea Dorks higher than Frisco all season. i expect them to do the same after this week's games.

    They just like to put down the 49ers. The 49ers are 5-0, the only undefeated team in the NFC, and they beat Cincinnati, Pittsburgh LA, and Cleveland by a total of 69 points. Seattle is 5-1, but they beat Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, LA and Cleveland by a grand total of 8 points.

    Just keep your eyes open. I predict at least some of the power rankings to rank New Orleans to be a better team than Frisco, even though New Orleans lost to the Rams. And some will rank Seattle a better team than Frisco, despite the difference in margin of victory against 4 common opponents. These power rankings are about as credible as Trump's lies.

    I have zero idea why anyone would care about a ranking.

    There is no official ranking in the NFL until the season's over.

    I'd rank them higher than Pats, Pats have played the worst teams in the NFL. the only team they played with a winning record is Bills and they barely beat them.

    But if by strength of schedule then the Niners are 3rd behind Saints,

    and Packers, Seahawks 4th.

    power rankings are meaningless in pro sports. it's not like college sports. power rankings don't get you into the playoffs.

    Yes, not that the Power rankings really mean anything. They're just opinion.
