espn power rankings

I usually dont think too much of power rankings and Im not really concern that the skins are only ranked in the middle of the league (due to their 2-2 record). What really bugs me is that the eagles are ranked so high. They've beaten the texans, the 9ers and the packers and lost the only game they played against a competitive team, the giants. Yet some how they're the fourth best team in the league? Their wins are against teams that are ranked 25 28 and 29 by espn. How can that possibly translate into them "flying high"? Certainly this is not the best one loss team in the league.

The "power rankings" are always as worthless as the BCS. I ignore them.

Yeah. Records aren't very important early season, but they are all that matters late season. Many "analysts" forget this phenomenon. The Eagles offense looks sharp right now. Very sharp, yet inconsistent at times. But with the defense playing like they are, they really aren't any threat to a good team. McNabb is at his best protecting a lead, and although is often assicotiated as a comeback QB, actually will make more mistakes when chasing by more than a TD. The Eagles will win games, maybe enough to eek into the playoffs (at the expense of everyones favorite team, Dallas), but come that murderers row of 3 consecutive divisional games on the road, won't look nearly as hot as they do now when they are beating up on the Green Bays and San Franciscos of the world.

Look for them to get ambushed in New Orleans in a few weeks. Drew Brees has a Donovan's ass sized chip on his shoulder right now.

Where's the link? This was just dissucsed in another thread about attaching a link so all of us can look at what you are talking about. Yes we could go to ESPN.com and then search all over and find the page, then click on the page and wait to see what your talking about. Or we could just click

Re: espn power rankings

In the Jags ranking it says:

Credit the Jacksonville defense for not making excuses despite a rash of injuries. 'We got out butts kicked. Plain and simple,' DE Paul Spicer said.

Is this true, were they injured? Could this have been part of our success?

and if so why wasn't anyone saying that during the game....people love to take credit away from us...

Anyways it makes me sick that they still have the Jags above us, and refuse to give us credit.

Re: espn power rankings

Just to clarify something here. A couple of years ago David Aldridge (local DC guy) was going to expand his duties beyond NBA and cover the Redskins. The Redskins had some issues with it and made his job pretty much moot.

both of their starting DEs were out (one's on IR, and the other was just hurt). Matt Jones also really didn't play in the game due to a hamstring.

Re: espn power rankings

How often do players say, "We would have won, but we're really banged up. If all our starter's had played we would have blown them out." The Jacksonville player did what every player in the league does, IMHO. No credit.

As for the Eagles, they are better than last year, but the usual suspects are getting a little carried away. They have beaten really, really bad teams and BLEW a game against the Giants which they should have won. Too many people are a little too quick to make grandiose statements about Donovan and they all seem top work for ESPN. Dan Patrick was ranting yesterday as though what Donovan had done this year proves once and for all that he is on par with the all time greats. Please. Still innacurate. Still plays without emotion. He will not be able to throw that pass to L.J Smith against good teams and then what will he have? They still can't run the football which is why they gave up the lead to the Giants. Yes, they are better and he is better because he is healthy, but to me that doesn't mean they are Super Bowl bound. This drives me nuts, because the Donovanists are going to push me to root for the Cowboys this weekend, because I don't think I can bear listening to them talk about how the Eagles have proved they are better without T.O. blah, blah, blah. The very idea that the Eagles were the victims of Owens is laughable. They were the ones that signed him. Caveat Emptor. They made an aggressive play for him when we all thought he was going to Baltimore. Now they're the victims. I don't think so.

Re: espn power rankings

I wouldn't call them "worthless" often they are a RELATIVELY accurate barometer for where most fans rank your team.

Have you seen the Eagles offense? When Westbrook plays they are probably the best in the league. If it weren't for Reid, they would be 4-0.
