This might be one of the worst power polls I have seen. Phily lost to Dallas, nuff said. San Diego is winless and in the top 5??? What's even more hilarious is the fact that they have two losses to teams that are not ahead of them in the polls (carolina and denver). Buffalo is undefeated, and Tampa has not been impressive, but Buff is 4 spots lower???? wow. Also, Tennessee is undefeated, and has THE BEST DEFENSE in the league and doesn't crack the top 10????

Who are you talking to? I am assuming me in regards to Denver and Tennessee, but when you make the comment of Phily ahead of Dallas...I didn't do that. Dallas was my "1b".

Quote:
My top 10 (um 12, had to hard of a time narrowing it down on the back end):
#1 Dallas (Obviously, I hate to say this, but a win at Green Bay proves it)
#2 NY Giants (Not impressive against Bungals, but impressive when it counted most)
#3 Philly (To much balance on both sides of the ball not to put them this high)
#4 Pittsburgh (Loss to Philly is not indicative of what they can do in AFC)
#5 Denver (The penchant to win close games is sign of good team and the AFC West is weak)
#6 Buffalo (3-0 is 3-0 and wins against Seattle and J'Ville are no joke)
#7 Tenn (Dismantling the Texans shows this 'D' is pretty good)
#8 49ers (If Martz keeps the 'O' Rolling, watch out, Willis is a monster a ILB, this team could go higher in the coming weeks)
#9 Washington (2 straight wins in close games merit a single-digit rating for a team that looks like it is finding an identity)
#10 Jacksonville (A tight win at Indy tells me you should throw out the record + watch out!)
#11 Green Bay (good team, but there will be growing pains with Rogers at the helm)
#12 Baltimore (Flacco does not need to try lead a high powered 'O', he needs to play like Trent Dilfer did in 2000 and trust the 'D' + the running game)
Jacksonville is 1-2 and beat only Indy who is apparently in turmoil. The Jags have a -9 point differential, and you have them in the top 10? Maybe later, but not now.
Baltimore is a team I stayed away from for now. They have only played 2 games and have not been impressive IMO. Defense is looking good, but let's wait until they play some decent competition.
I think the 49ers are too high, as they have not played anyone good minus Arizona who they lost to by 10...yet you have them ahead of the Skins who beat Arizona by 7????

All in all, not bad. We just disagree with a few, and while I disagree with your poll, it's not way off...a lot can easily be interchangable.

Re: jsarno's top 10 power poll

Sorry JSarno, got two posts mixed up when I responded to yours...GTripp had philly ahaead of dallas.....when I look at your poll, I think that you obviously have many of the best teams up near the top (at least the ones who have played the best so far), but I want to see Denver have a dominating performance to be #1 or even #2 or #3, because if Hoculli had made the right call in week 2, they might not be 3-0.....also, seeing San Diego lay 49 against the Jets screws up my poll....thanks for your response

No problem.
San Diego jumps to 11 on my poll right now. They dominated an average team. They are likely on their way to the top, but right now they are on the outside looking in.
About the blown call, you're right, but "what-ifs" can't be a factor when doing a power poll. Blown call or not, Denver won. Every game has a "questionable" call that could change the outcome. The fact that San Diego "almost" won is the reason they are 11 on my poll.

After a loss to KC are they still gonna be in the top 10? Denver is garbage, can stop the run or pass and you got Jay Cutler playing a poor man's John Elway.
