Default NFL.com has us as a Tier 4 team

Sadly, only 5 tiers

Tier 2

San Francisco 49ers: The Niners are a "hot" team poised to take the next step. They play very good defense (17.6 points per game) and quarterback Alex Smith is ready to play winning football. Look for WR Michael Crabtree to have a fine season and remember the Niners beat Arizona twice last year.

move along people....nothing to see here

I would have given the Broncos tier 3, but when looking at the tier 3 teams and the tier 4 teams, they are more in line with the tier 4 teams. I'd say that there isn't a big difference between any of those teams at this point.

And each of those years we have proved them dead wrong buy showing the world that we should be considered nothing if not a Tier 3 team. Will they never learn?

Edit, just read the post you were quoting and realized that my response has absolutely nothing to do with your post. I'm clearly a Tier 5 poster today.

Pat Kirwin is a douche. He plays favorites with teams - especially ones that have USC players.

San Fran are the new Chuggers. Best 8-8 team ever.

Aside from the 49ers and the Giants, all the tier one and two teams are playoff teams so I don't understand the criticism of the rankings.

Kirwan knows rankings are just rankings. It's just fun stuff for fans (and analysts) to debate about.

I write the same thing no matter what Kirwin writes and you can go back and search my previous comments on Kirwin. If he had said we were going to win the SB I would have said the same thing.

Dude, I have to respectfully disagree. Kirwan and Ryan have without a doubt the most insightful NFL talk program going.
