Power Rankings obviously have no value when it comes to winning football games and not much more when it comes to predicting football games. However, it's always nice to get a little respect. In the latest ESPN NFL Power Rankings, your San Francisco 49ers are 10th:
10(15) 49ers 2-0-0: Props to Frank Gore, who played with a heavy heart Sunday following the death of his mother earlier in the week. Gore scored twice, including a 43-yard run, in the 17-16 win at St. Louis.
The top 15 rankings right now:
The Lions are 2-0 also and ranked 18th, making them the lowest ranked undefeated team. The Chargers are the highest ranked 1-loss team and the Saints are the highest ranked winless team at 19. This weekend against Pittsburgh will probably clarify the 49ers situation and settle them in the power rankings.
