    They dropped us 1 in this latest ranking, and we dropped 2 after the draft. Total of 3 spots since the draft ranking.
    I'm looking forward to the Bears proving 'em wrong. I really hope we have a rock solid game Sunday, not only as a fan, but to prove these guys wrong too.

    That's pretty good actually. Bears always play better when they're considered the underdog.

    That sounds about right, Anyone really consider them a top 10-12 team? Better then being ranked 18-32

    The only thing that made me wonder, is the fact that they dropped us 3 places since the draft. Two places until today, and one additional place today. I just wondered what they see that triggered the reduction. Obviously, for them to lower our ranking, they see something they don't like. I could see the post draft reduction (Long was questioned by many) but a third drop today makes me wonder what they see as a problem with the Bears.

    maybe it wasn't so much the Bears but the teams that jumped them.

    This excellent example of why these rankings should be outlawed for establishing National title games in college. Lets play the games have playoff format and then we can see how these moronic rankings line up after the facts at the end of the season.

    NFL isnt college. "Power rankings" are both pointless and useless.
