    Three weeks into the Trestman era, and we're considered a top-5 team in the NFL.
    Whether we really are, or not, it's still cool.

    Even if these ratings aren't completely accurate, and much is opinion, it's still a step. We were never high in the ratings for a reason. The public perception of the team is changing and that's huge. We may not be as good as our 3-0 record but we're also not as far off as in years past and people are taking notice. Regardless of what peoples issues are with this team the arrow is pointing up and we're trending. Enjoy the ride.

    I'd rather be flying under the radar myself.

    With the Bears being the #3 scoring offense in the league and with Jay being the #3 QB (based on QBR), we are on everybody's radar screen.

    I noticed 3 things in the latest rankings:

    1. The Bengals team is at #6. They are considered a solid team, and we beat them (and of course they just beat Green Bay).
    2. We are ranked ahead of the unbeaten 3-0 New England Patriots, who are rated as being the #5 team. Pretty cool to see us get the nod over the Pats.
    3. The almighty Green Bay Packers are not even in the top-10.

    This is the year we win back the Division over the Packers. I still believe we have a shot at sweeping them this year too.

    NFL.com has the Bears ranked at #5 and I saw another where they had them at #3 (might have been Bleacher Report lol)...

    Yeah they are all opinions, but seems to be a general/popular opinion at this point that we got ourselves a Top 5 team here.

    I am about as excited about being ranked 5th as I was when we were around 10th

    I like this: The Bears defense has as many touchdowns as the Buccaneers and Jaguars offenses.
    And I like this: The Bears defense has scored on 1.6% of snaps, higher than the Jaguars offense.

    Now we all know the Bucs and Jags are the bottom of the barrel. but they ARE professional teams, and to have a D that scores more than somebody's O is damn impressive.

    It's funny though, we all (me included!) complain about not getting media attention, then when we get it, we would rather fly under the radar.

    After the last two years I care about where we are ranked Week 9-17!
