We're number 2 NFC in both standings.

NFL looks to be sorted by record, then alphabetically.
ESPN looks to be actual seeding if playoffs started today.

Neither has any impact on a team's true seeding or scheduling....yet

If the media is ever allow to impact "standings", the NFL will slowly bleed to death.

This is a good thing. I love being the underdog, the over looked, the under rated. This team has something to prove this year player and coach wise. Both Payton and Ryan have chips on their shoulders and so do each and every player.

Guy's, don't worry about power rankings, standings, media not giving enough attention, ect. We should be used to this by now.

Just stand behind the black and gold and enjoy this complete turn around they have done in 1 year. We are all damn proud of them this year and that's all that should matter.

These aren't power rankings, they're playoff standings.
