    Espn.com has DA Bears at #12 and Nfl.com at #14.

    Do you guys agree or disagree with these rankings? Where do you think we should be? I know power rankings don't mean sh*t, but always fun to look at and see what these critics think. After making so many offseason moves still..no love for DA Bears as usual, but more love for those Green Bay Peckers...

    They sure think the Packers nailed this draft.

    one pick doesn't nail a draft; was a steal for Dix though, even if you only think he's going to be an okay S and not elite, at 21 I'd take it in a heartebeat, the guy is at least going to be a solid starting S for them for years to come, and when you know the O is putting 25+ points on the board and you'll likely be protecting the lead, isn't that all you need?

    Their top-6 were no surprise.

    Seahawks
    Broncos
    49ers
    Patriots
    Saints
    Packers

    These are the elite franchises in the NFL right now. I'm still sick over the fact we couldn't unseat the Packers in a rare year where they were relatively weak with Aaron Rodgers injured. We will not get any respect until we actually begin winning championships again in Chicago. That 1985 Lombardi was a long time ago.

    These rankings are like mock drafts LoL

    Bears are going to be a top franchise moving forward and this year will be the start!

    BEAR DOWN!

    The rankings are completely bogus.

    ESPN: We should be ranked 7th. We're better than the Panthers. Bengals, Eagles, Cardinals, and Colts.

    NFL: We should be ranked 7th here too. We're clearly better than the Chargers, Bengals, Panthers, Cardinals, Eagles, Chiefs, and Colts.

    I guess we're going to have to go out on the field and prove 'em all wrong.

    As a sidenote. post draft we went from 28-1 to 20-1 in the Vegas Superbowl odds. That's the biggest jump by any team. It puts us in 6th place behind only the Seahawks, Broncos, Patriots, 49ers, and Packers. 20-1 odds also ties us with the Saints and Colts. Not bad at all.

    BiM, hate to disagree, but until further notice, all those teams were in the Playoffs last year, other then the Cards, that means those teams have a leg up on the Bears going into the season. I think the Bears have a shot as being as good if not better then them, but until they prove it, it's understandable that people would those teams ahead of them.

    Power Rankings are just something media types do to keep from jacking off too much and going blind. :wank:

    I feel the same way. I feel like we could prove we "belong" this year with the big boys. But until we actually win something, and unseat Green Bay, then it's just another season of the fans thinking big thoughts. Heck, many fans thought we were going to the Super Bowl when we brought Cutty here, and again when we hired Trestman. Instead we're an 8-8 team. We went from a 10 win team to an 8 win team. Now we (on this messageboard) understand what's going on, and are hopeful for better days. But the sports media just understand one thing, that the Bears are a mediocre team that looks up at the Packers backside in the NFCN each year. Talk is cheap until you back up the talk.

    what really sucks about GB is that w/how strong the NFCW and S are it's going to be REALLY hard to get that WC spot, unless they take turns picking eachother apart and all finish 8-8 or 9-7, which I'd be fine with mind you. I still think Det, until further notice will Det themselves like Dallas always does, and Minny is still rebuilding...when haven't they been? So the Bears and GB are the 2 fav's right now, and again, until further notice GB has to be the favorite.
