49ers come in 5th in our power rankings. Patrick Willis is a BallersSports favorite.
Time flies when your having fun, especially during the NFL season. Here we are 8 weeks in and its time for our power rankings. This year we are only doing our rankings every 4 weeks and if you missed how we ranked them 4 weeks ago make sure you check out last months power rankings.
Here goes our power rankings and we tell us how your list stacks up to ours.
5. 49ers – They simply dismantled the Cardinals on Monday night. Running game, a tough defense and QB who plays very efficient. That is a winning recipe.
4. Bears – This has to be one of the most slept on 6-1 teams ever. The Brandon Marshall pickup has been playing dividens and nobody can play the cover 2 better than this team right now.
3. Giants – Hurt running backs and wide receivers?? …No problem for Elite Manning. He is playing lights out so far and anytime he’s on the field his team is going to have a good chance to win.
2. Texans – Probably the most balanced offense in the league. They have a great defense and this team looks like it may be here for the long haul. Arian Foster is a beast running and catching the ball. This team is complete.
1. Falcons – You can’t put a team that’s 7-0 anywhere but at the top. Matt Ryan is your mid season MVP and this team hasn’t really had to deal with any injuries. Roddy and Julio are a problem for secondaries. How far will this team go before they lose a game? 72 Dolphins?
Preparing for the draft
28. Bills – Raiders, Cardinals, Bengals or Rams could have gone here. We just happen to think that its about to get really bad for Buffalo.
29. Browns – Brandon Weeden has heart, and Trent is a strong dude that runs with violence. That’s all I got, other than that they have a bad football team.
30. Panthers – They have running backs that don’t get touches, a defense that is flat out bad and a bad play calling as well. Yea Cam sulking at press conferences isn’t their only problem.
31. Jaguars – Is it time for Tebow? .. Might as well try and sell some tickets.
32. Chiefs – Brady Quinn or Matt Cassell … It doesn’t matter because they will have the #1 pick in the draft next year.

Monday night’s NFC west divisional showdown saw the San Francisco 49ers go into the University of Phoenix Stadium and completely dismantle the Arizona Cardinals 24-3. The 49ers, on their part, controlled the entire aspect of the game on both offense and defense. They looked as crisp and precise as they have all year, and they dictated the action on nearly every down. The Cardinals...
The San Francisco 49ers are bucking a trend. Most teams that go from having losing records one year to posting 10 or more wins the next year typically fall back to 9-7 or worse in the third year of the cycle. According to the Pro Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh, 29 teams have gone from a sub-.500 record to an above-.500 record over the past 10 years. In 26 of those cases...
After his quarterback Alex Smith put up an astounding performance on Monday Night Football, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh had a word for anyone who had an issue with his starting quarterback.
Check out the video from the fine folks over at Awful Announcing during a Monday press conference when asked about the critics of the his quarterback.
Here is the exact quote of Harbaugh...
Randy Moss has been known for many things throughout his 14-year NFL career. His freakish athleticism, disruptive attitude, unusual touchdown celebrations, and even his preference to pay in "straight cash, homey" all immediately come to mind when discussing Moss.
But among all the clear descriptors, leadership never seemed to make the list.
Last week: 6 (-1)
Alex Smith was 18 of 19 on Monday Night against the Cardinals, one completion shy of setting the all-time record for completion percentage in a single game. He did set the single game for most pass attempts with only 1 incompletion and that incompletion was actually a drop. The knock on him, however, is that he settled for mostly short stuff, completing...
It was a near record setting performance by Alex Smith on Monday Night Football, following a 24-3 victory for his San Francisco 49ers against the Arizona Cardinals. I say near record setting, because the NFL has upheld the initial ruling made by the referees, even after the call was challenged by the 49ers.
On Monday night, Smith completed an impressive 18 of 19 passes for 232 yards...
The 49ers completely dismantled the Cardinals in Monday Night Football. One of the highlight plays of the night, Niners safety Dashon Goldson levels Cards receiver Early Doucet. OK that hit was BANANAS!! And legal. Best part, Dashon’s sack celebration..Hilarious. source
Coming off of a 45-3 blowout of the Buffalo Bills, Jim Harbaugh found a pretty effective motivator for his first-place San Francisco 49ers entering Week Six. Harbaugh made a proposal, using old-fashioned R-and-R as the proverbial dangling carrot to make sure his veteran group kept champing at the bit after its 4-2 start, highlighted by consecutive wins over the Jets and Bills by...
49ers quarterback Alex Smith went 18-of-19 passing Monday night, finishing one completion shy of qualifying for the most accurate single-game performance in NFL history.
Or did he?
According to Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee, the 49ers will ask the NFL to review Smith's fourth-quarter throw to Michael Crabtree, an 8-yard gain that was ruled a lateral. If the NFL agrees...
The San Francisco 49ers handled their business and the opposing team once again Monday night imposing their will upon the Arizona Cardinals for a 24-3 victory. The 49ers have not allowed a touchdown in four of their last five games. The NFC West leaders used their winning formula of power running, bruising defense and phenomenal special teams play to destroy the Cardinals in every...

10/30 Yardbarker & the Cannons go into Blake Griffin on Conan, a new impersonation for Frank Caliendo and 49ers Randy Moss strikes again.
