    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.

    ^^This^^

    Besides, if they were accurate, Minny would have dropped 6 spots from the Webb signing alone...

    I think that would be interesting to see one of these networks do a comparison from the beginning of the season to the end, and not just when they are right.

    That's like asking the weatherman to show his predictions on previous weeks forecast results. Not going to happen.

    The line has to hold up, but if they do then I expect playoffs.

    I'm not sure you can but Webb in the box called upgrades.

    I think we're were we should be. Rookie right side on Oline and rookie MLB? There's still loads of questionsmarks on this team, hopefully we will know them on Sunday.
