Yeah I don't get this..............

Another win that feels darn good in Week 1 but wouldn't mean quite so much in Week 10. Of course, given how Green Bay is playing, they could be 2-0 in a week. NEXT: at GB

24. PACKERS 0-1 31 27 24 32

or this

23. BROWNS 0-1 23 28 16 6

yeah the whole report os BS............It is like seeing 6 articles on Auburn and the big goose egg for LSU..........This is an East Coast media bias and I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the Saints win this weekend, maybe he should consider changing it to "Schitz".

I'm guessing I am the only one who didn't just go straight to the ranking, and actually tried to read the reasoning. And the only reason I did that was cause I repsect football outsiders and the work they do. It should be noted, this is not foxsports ranking but football outsiders' ranking. Foxsports just posts it on their site. Anywho, read this:

This year, we're introducing a new rating that combines our preseason projection with early-season results to get the best prediction of how teams will do for the entire season, based on analysis of 2001-2005. Believe it or not, after one week, analysis of the past five years shows that the preseason projection is 22 times as important as Week 1 results when it comes to predicting ratings over all 16 games. That's why these ratings may seem a little strange, with teams that won this week showing up lower than teams that got blown out like Oakland and Tennessee.

Still dumb. If anybody projected the Saints to be worse than the Raiders, that person deserves to get kicked in the nuts. I wish I could take a shat on Schatz right now.

We also have to consider that the preseason projections from our projection system don't always agree with conventional wisdom or even the personal opinions of the Football Outsiders staff, including myself — particularly when it comes to Oakland. Nonetheless, our projection system is the most accurate available, picking more playoff teams over the last two years than any other.
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.

The last time I checked, the NFL decided nothing based on rankings. So what does it really matter.

The only thing that matters is handling our business against GB.
