I'm all for them voting us dead last. Last time I checked, they dont' hand out Super Bowl trophies for finishing at the top of some pundits power rankings list. 32 all the way!!!

Just to further torpedo power rankings, they've also got the Chiefs 6 spots ahead of the team who just blasted them in their own house. Under the radar works fine for me.

Power Rankings have their place. They're fun to look at, but not much more. Especially week two. I think they're a bit more accurate after 4-5 weeks when we see what teams had one good/bad week, and what teams have sustained a certain level of success. I think that applies to every single NFC East very heavily right now. We looked better than expected. The rest of the league was probably under expectations.

Win and get respect. I don't mean one game. I mean win good games. Beat who you should. Be consistent. The pundits will start to pick us if we prove that we should be picked.

Are you sure? Coulda sworn right after the Packers earned their way to the 6th seed last year the collective power rankings just crowned them Champions so they cancelled the playoffs.

I think there's a lot of seedy shit going on behind the scenes too, did anybody notice how the play clock seemed to speed up on the Cowboys when they were playing the Jets Sunday night? And how the Jets barely had any penalties? It's almost like the league wanted the Jets to win.

Mike Silver from Yahoo sports has them ranked 17th. My favorite comment is the one from NE:

4. New England Patriots: What’s crazier – that Tom Brady(notes) is on pace to throw for 8,272 yards this season, or that Donovan McNabb(notes) is on pace to throw for 624?

Miami (22) going toe to toe with the Patriots who are #3? Miami barely lost the game. One more turn with the ball and they would have had similar numbers in yardage Patriots had 516 or something and Miami had 417, basically 100 yrds difference.

Clearly power polls are designed with favorites in mind.
