Prestigious Power poll

Want to know something weird? Teams 10-13 in last week’s power poll all had bye weeks. What are the odds? Anyway, they all move up 2 spaces this week due to the continuing meltdowns in Indianapolis and Dallas. Plus, the 2008 debut of The World’s Most Prestigious NFL Awards at the bottom. Read on…

01. Tennessee Titans [6-0]: There’s no secret to this team’s success: The #4 rushing offense combined with the #3 overall defense. They batter teams into submission. This being Tennessee, they then take those battered teams and deep fry them in chocolate sauce. [NC]

02. New York Giants [5-1]: The class of the NFC right now, but the schedule the next 3 weeks looks like this: At Pittsburgh, home against Dallas, at Philadelphia. A tough game against the Panthers and a rematch with the Redskins [in D.C.] await them after Thanksgiving. [NC]

Read it.

Re: Prestigious Power poll

I never put much stock in power rankings. It's opinionated, and often biased. I think any team moving up or down by 6-8 places based on one week is absurd.

That being said, I read these rankings. I have no qualms with Miami being as low as they are, but...

25. Cleveland Browns [2-4]: Shut down Miami’s Wildcat formation [with TB Ronnie Brown behind center in the shotgun formation], essentially ending the game. [-3]

26. Miami Dolphins [2-4]: Turns out that the Wildcat formation is the only way the offense can score. [-3]

Miami hasn't and doesn't play the Browns this season. This logic is flawed.

*aside* I'm not turning this into any kind of Fins thread. It just happened to stick out because it's my team.
My point is simply that I think power rankings are (for the most part) a joke.
I am a Dolphins fan living in New England. You may call me brave or foolhardy, but I wear my shame with dignity!!!

Re: Prestigious Power poll

I'm so sick of seeing buffalo and pittsburgh ahead of us, they have played no one and we beat down the eagle team in philly that beat downt the steelers. The giants beat us and tennessee is 6-0 although I don't believe they've played a winning team yet. I think a physical team such as ourselves will beat pittsburgh down.

But in the Bills defense they did lose their starting QB on the opening drive in that game.
