jsarno's top 10 power poll week 5.

Here is the poll after week 5, not including monday night game, but it only affects the 10 on the poll. Number in ( ) is last week's ranking.

1- Washington- (3) - OK, I may get some crap for this, and might be called a homer, but I don't care. I promised that if the Skins beat the Eagles at home after beating Dallas at home, they would reside in my #1 spot. With the exception of the first few drives, the Skins owned the Eagles, and they definitely outplayed the Cowboys the majority of that game too. Their schedule dictates this ranking.

2- N.Y. Giants- (2) - I understand that the Giants beat the Skins, however, I don't think that would happen if they met today. The Giants have had an easy schedule to this point, and while they have dominated a couple of them, I still don't think they would be able to beat the Skins right now. This is a very good team that beat up on a very mediocre at best team last week. Not their fault, I know, but face some better competition and we'll see what happens.

3- Tennessee- (1) - I almost never drop a team without a loss, but Tennessee has a much easier schedule, and they luckily beat the Ravens. Collins has been better than Young, but not last week. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good, last week is prime example for them. This is still a good team, but I feel I overranked them last week. I listened to some of you, and some gave good points, others didn't give any points at all, just bitched. Either way, I think they deserve respect, and a 3 spot is nothing to be ashamed of.

4- Dallas- (5):vomit: - Dallas has made a habit of not covering the spread lately, not that this has anything to do with their ranking, but it does show they are overrated, albeit slightly. This team is still explosive, on offense, and with their arrogance. All in all, a pretty solid team that is itching to pass the Titans on this ranking.

5- Denver- (6) - I've been saying it over and over, this team is better than people think. They are good, and it appears as if they may have figured something out on D finally. Don't understand how they can lose badly to KC, but beat Tampa??? This team is well coached, and they are hungry.

6- Pittsburgh- (7) - This team is tough to get an accurate reading on, but the easiest thing to notice is they keep winning. That's all that matters.

7- Chicago- (9) - This team is a real sleeper, they are only getting better.

8- Buffalo- (4) - I was never really on this bandwagon, and the loss this week has me very curious if they are for real, or just taking advantage of circumstances.

9- Carolina- (NR) - This team has been forgotten, but at 4-1, they are a very good team that should be higher than 9th. They have a VERY underrated defense.

10- Arizona- (NR) - I really don't like this pick at 10, but they have been unfortunate to face some good teams, and they beat previously undefeated Buffalo handily.

Jsarno, your polls are starting to make more sense! I would have Carolina a little higher personally. The are the best team that noone is talking about.

At this point, I am not sure if they can beat the teams ahead of them (minus Buffalo). I do not think Buff is that good, but I have been wrong to this point on them, so I have been holding off moving the Bills lower.

Re: jsarno's top 10 power poll week 5.

Good rankings.. I would probably also quarrel a little with Carolina at 9, I'd put them over Dallas, Denver and Pittsburgh right now. I'd be more concerned to play them than any other team in your top 10.

I can respect that, I just haven't seen enough of Carolina at this point to warrent it. I'll watch more of their game this coming week and see how they look.

I don't see Chicago as that good and Carolina is potentially top 5.
I dont believe in Arizona, I'd argue Chicago and Arizona aren't as good as Tampa or the Saints...I also think Buffalo will drop

I'd go like this:

Giants
Titans
Redskins
Cowgirls
Panthers
Denver
Pittsburgh
Saints (I know their record)
Bills
Tampa

sorry man, I had some serious issues at home that I had to spend a lot of time on. My wife had a false positive finger print, and she was accused of a double felony. She (just last few days) has been cleared of any wrong doing and put into the system that way, but there is still a slight problem that we are trying to correct.
I stopped betting for this whole time, and not sure if I will resume. I just don't have the time that I used to because of all this. It was a quite a mess. Oddly enough, Sarah Palin helped her when she was out here a couple weeks ago. (we know people that know people) I definitely have a new found respect for her.

There is NOTHING like a false positive on finger prints, after doing some research, I found that this is not all uncommon, but people think it's as secure / solid as DNA evidence. It's not. My wife has never even had so much as a speeding ticket. She's about as straight as they come.

I don't mind the titans...I especially don't mind since VY is not the guy leading them.
If I had to pick a second favorite team, I'd pick the Colts. While I do like Peyton and followed his entire career (tenn and indy) I personally know Hunter Smith (the punter). He's a good guy. Oddly enough my mother in law used to be his teacher in Sherman Texas.
