I believe that power ranking system is based entirely on stats - there is no real leverage for the author to move one team above another just becasue he feels they are better.
Its an interesting attempt at a scientific power-ranking system - but it definitely needs some fine tuning.
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.
