Week 16 NFL Power Rankings and the 49ers

Once again, Pro Football Talk has a comment in their power rankings that caught my attention.  I'm not sure of the intent of it, so interpret as you wish.  Feel free to post what your interpretation of the comment is:

Mike Singletary can't be on the hot seat because no one in the organization has the guts to fire him.

Thoughts?  Also, Vic Carucci apparently doesn't watch the Seahawks or the Packers.  The Seahawks lost 48-10 at Green Bay and he bumped the Seahawks UP from 28 to 24.  Really?

ESPN - #21 (22) - The 49ers can become the first team since the 2006 Panthers and 2006 Packers to miss the playoffs with a 5-1 division record.

  • Arizona - #6 (6)
  • Seattle - #26 (24)
  • St. Louis - #32 (32)

The Big Lead - #21 (22) - Cripes, the Lions turned it over six times and the Niners still only won by two touchdowns? Ol’ bug eyes needs to get up in that ass.

  • Arizona -#8 (8)
  • Seattle - #25 (27)
  • St. Louis - #32 (32)

Fox Sports - #20 (18) - Here is a team that's transforming, as Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary continues to put his stamp on the Niners. No, they're not a playoff team just yet. But a win this week against the league's worst team would snap their current franchise-worst streak of six consecutive losing seasons.

  • Arizona - #9 (11)
  • Seattle - #29 (27)
  • St. Louis - #32 (32)

CBS Sports - #21 (21) - Did Alex Smith earn a starting job next season? Right now, I'd have to say yes.

  • Arizona - #9 (9)
  • Seattle - #25 (24)
  • St. Louis - #32 (32)
