Same here. I can understand why they might move the Pats down even though they got the win. The injury was to a key player so I can understand that, but down to 6? I figured they would be within the top 3. I figured we would be at 4 maybe 5.

I like the stat side of it, noting we are 20% more effecient on offense than other teams, but gotta take a closer look to see what it all means. Till then I'll stick with saying the Pats should be above us using the old best 2 out of 3 system.

I think the ranking is just a reflection of our perceived ability to win against the better teams - if we had won sunday and not had any injuries I think we would have been upto No.2 or thereabouts.

But because of the losses of two very influential positional players it would have to affect our ability in forthcoming games.

To be quite honest, I dont mind admitting that the Patriots ability to keep riding out these losses defies logic - therefore you cant blame the power-rankers for following logic in their placements.

My honest opinion? The Steelers and Pats are tied at the top - the Colts D is going to be shown up as the biggest fraud of the season once they play some half decent offenses.

Cheers

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.
