We are slowly heading our way into the top 5 at http://www.powernfl.com/

Ranked 8th and still got some room for improvements!


Do you guys think this is low or high?

That may actually be the first ever power ranking that I've ever seen that I can say "Yes, that makes sense...that's just about right".

-It gives credit to the undefeated teams, but doesn't lose it's mind over it.
-It doesn't have NE #1
-Teams have to work towards #1 over weeks instead of just "being there" or jumping up based on nothing.

It's probably still flawed because I don't think things would shake out this way in a tournament, but it's better than nothing for people who enjoy this type of speculation...

8th might be about right ... but I don't really put too much stock in these things as our boys just have to show who is better next Sunday ... and that's who is better: Steelers or Vikes.

This ranking has the Falcons at #7 with a description of: Flacco and the Falcons just took out one of the top teams in the NFC, in a blowout victory. If they can't get the QBs straight, who the heck are they to say our Steelers aren't #1? Besides, last I checked we are the reigning Super Bowl Champs ... we're the champs until someone else becomes the champs! :tt03:

Who cares? This aint college. If it wasnt for 2 missed field goals and a dropped pass by Sweed we'd be 6-0 right now, and probably ranked #1. None of it matters though anyway. Let the 'experts' have fun with their little power rankings. I know like you all know that we can ball with ANYONE.

They've got to beat Iowa first. It's going to be tough telling who's who on the field though.

I do not give a ratz azz about power rankings. I do not care about how hot a team starts. I like for my team to build momentum as the season ends and sweep through the playoffs. I will say though that its nice to see the Ravens and Jets have fallen some after being slopped on by the media early on.

Boise will never make the superbowl since the schedule they played is too easy.

Amen. Power rankings are useless. We got no respect last year or for that matter any year. Why put stock in things that don't matter? Even the first 6 weeks of college ball doesn't matter too much.

Who cares? This aint college. If it wasnt for 2 missed field goals and a dropped pass by Sweed we'd be 6-0 right now, and probably ranked #1. None of it matters though anyway. Let the 'experts' have fun with their little power rankings. I know like you all know that we can ball with ANYONE.

What? Rankings? Why? Hell, prior to last weekends games I'm sure that the "experts" crowned the Giants as champions, am I mistaken? Is the title up for grabs again?

Yeah I forgot about them. :toofunny: But last weekend they were all calling the Giants the best team in the NFL. I thought for sure that Goodell would be stepping onto the ESPN set at any moment to present the Lombardi Trophy to the New York Giants. They sure had me convinced :doh:

Top shelf offense & defense & 2 losses that could have easily been wins. 8th? Whatever.

I just enjoy listening to the logic which changes 180 from week to week.

No disrespect intended here, but who gives a rat's ass where we are ranked? :shake02:

The only thing that really matters is the #1ranking when the final second ticks off that clock in Super Bowl XLIV.
