Re: PFW power rankings
Steeler fans playing the 'no respect' card despite being ranked 3rd and 5th respectively?
You'll pardon me if I don't faint on the spot.
Good old Pete Prisco never fails to impress - the Patriots are likely to give up 50 points to the Bengals this week?
Based on them putting an average of 24 against to two NFL teams they have faced this year?
I think not.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
