Also, I can't remember us ever being #1 in a power rankings poll by the ESPNs and PFTs of the world except for some preseason ones during the "paper champ" streak of 2004-2006. Never within season. Didn't happen in 2008, 2005, definitely not in 2003, not in 1996 because of the Packers.
If we beat the Saints, it will be interesting to see if they do put us #1 in some polls. Doubtful, although Seattle plays on the road in San Francisco and is prime for a loss. If Seattle loses and we beat the Saints, how can you NOT put us at #1? This is nowhere near the same team that lost to Seattle (and they barely beat us when we still had Ron Rivera as head coach and not Riverboat Ron.)
