Start off with Yahoo.com's Shutdown Corner, who for my money is one of the best in the biz.

 

9. Carolina Panthers (5-3, LW: 11)
They have absolutely dominated the bad teams they’ve beaten, which is a great sign, but all of their wins have been against bad teams. This week’s game at San Francisco is really, really intriguing.

I thought it was also funny that he has KC ranked 6th.  I'm sure their fans are having aneurysms as we speak.

 

6. Kansas City Chiefs (9-0, LW: 6)
I’m willing to move them up, perhaps to the top, if they beat Denver. I’m not moving them up after they were outgained 470-210 by Jeff Tuel and the Buffalo Bills.

Prisco has us up two spots to 11

 

 

11 CAR.png Four consecutive victories has them feeling good about where they are in terms of playoff push. Now comes a real tough one: At San Francisco. powerrankings_green_up.png2(13)

Prisco also says KC is "the worst team to ever start 9-0".  I think he's got a point.

The "You can only play who you play" mantra we're all holding onto to run off people who bitch about our strength of schedule works for KC too. 

 

They played who they were scheduled to play, backup QBs and all, and are undefeated.  They may be the worst team ever to start 9-0 but they *are* 9-0.  IMO that deserves top of the list...or at the very least higher than 6.

@jjones9: If you're tired of hearing about bad CAR opponents, here's a stat. Of top 8 NFC teams, 1 (DAL) has a strength of schedule above .500

Huh - I didn't realize it was that significant.  I know it was a low number though.

 

Easy target, I suppose.

A WHOLE PIE!

So we steamroll Bucs 31-13 in Tampa Bay. Tampa Bay forces Seahawks into OT IN Seattle. We steamroll the Vikings in Minnesota 38-10. The Vikings go to Dallas and come within seconds of upset. Do people forget that during the Giants game, we had more TDs than the Giants had total offensive yards at one point in that game?! No that wasnt against the Jags, that was against Eli, Cruz and Nicks. Think about that, more TDs than they had offensive yards. The way we are winning just does not happen in the NFL. We are making teams look as though they have no business being in the NFL.

My point is this.. get the fug outta here with that "we havent beat good teams" poo.

Pretty much this.  Beat SF in SF to go to 5 straight and who we beat prior, no matter how badly we beat them, doesn't matter.

 

On the flip-side lose to SF in SF and, no matter how close we come to beating them, we're going to catch a whole lot of "see I told you you were no good!" from a lot of people.

 

The reality, in either case, will be somewhere in the middle.

This is getting ahead of ourselves, but even if we lose to SF we will still have a winning record with New England coming to town for MNF. 

 

A win against SF, followed by a MNF beatdown of New England and the Panther bandwagon will be nearly as big as Star's left bicep.

 

No matter what happens against San Fran, Bank of America stadium should be electric that Monday Night.

i wanna win this game dont get me wrong. but we will still be in good shape if we finish 1-1 these next two games.

 

these are major, major tests. in san fran will probably be the hardest game we play all year minus if we make the playoffs
