It's called a preface. They are letting you know ahead of time, the rankings you see are not weighted on normal Team A beat Team B criteria week by week. I mean damn, you'd think we just beat the Steelers. We barely beat the freaking Browns. With our schedule, we may very well be the last team in the league come the end of the season, which is how they are PROJECTING their rankings, not gut shot reactions to week by week performance. Lighten up. It's not like people's opinions of us will change after barely getting by the Browns. They were a called back 75 yard TD pass from possibly winning. Keep perspective here.
I'd just like to add to whodi's comment:

While the teams are listed in order of projected final rankings, using the formula that includes the preseason projection as well as Week 1, the column marked 2006 Only gives each team's ranking based on just one game
The Saints are actually ranked 9th after Week 1.

32. SAINTS 1-0 9 17 5 17

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

I am tired of hearing about the 75 yard pass that was called back. Drop it already. If there was not a hold there then Frye would have been eaten alive and would not have gotten the pass off. Find some other reason to dog the Saints, but not for a legitamate penalty that called back a long play that if the penalty had not happened the QB would not have gotten the ball off.

Are the Saints a top ten team right now? Nope. However they showed improvement in defense no matter who it was against, and hey will only get better as a team as the year goes on. Like I said a couple of months ago, I figure the Saints to be 7-9 or 8-8, too bad the schedule is soo rough looking or it could be better. Of course I figure the NFC East will not be nearly as good as other people seem to think.

Do you have an alternate universe machine that tells you that's fact?

Who's dogging the Saints? I am trying to add a grain of salt to this we have a dominant defense talk. It was Cleveland. Are you also tired of hearing about the fumble that negated any chance they had of scoring at least a FG right before the half?

but not for a legitamate penalty that called back a long play that if the penalty had not happened the QB would not have gotten the ball off.
Again, alternate universe thinking. I am going by what DID happen, not what someone assumes WOULD not have happened.

The other Power Ranking from Fox Sports has the Saints listed at #18, which is far different from the #32 by Schatz.

18. Reggie Bush’s “Madden 07� ratings are way off. He should have 99s across the board. The rookie didn’t break any big ones on Sunday, but still managed to completely dominate the game.

Worry not.........

about rankings and such. Enjoy the rise from the ashes, to the rise to the top of the rankings by seasons end. I can see it happening, but I don't get pissed off by some uninformed hemmoroids opinion. He'll lose credibilityfor saying stupid things.
