The Power Rankings Post

AKA The Elephant in the Room.

Sporting News: Week 10 rankings: Perfect Patriots possible - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

14. New Orleans Saints 4-4 (21)
Don't laugh. After starting 0-4, the Saints have a shot at finishing 12-4.
Yahoo! Sports: '07 rankings: Opposite directions - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

Cole: #10 - "A week ago, I talked about my gut feeling that Jacksonville deserved to be ranked No. 4. So much for that. It's one thing for the Jaguars to lose, but to give up 41 points in the process is just ugly. … New Orleans gets a big bump up "

Robinson: #11 - "Since starting 0-4, Drew Brees' numbers are through the roof. Over the last four games, he's got a 115.1 quarterback rating, completing over 71 percent of his passes for 1,246 yards, 11 touchdowns and one interception."
Fox Sports: http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/powerRankings?MSNHPHCP>1=10637

#8 Saints - The Saints are officially on a roll. Winners of four straight after Sunday's offensive explosion on Jacksonville, New Orleans improves to 4-4 after an 0-4 start to the season. Drew Brees went nuts, going 35-49 for 445 yards and three touchdowns. Marques Colston hauled in 10 passes and Reggie Bush compiled 114 yards of offense. If there was any negative to this Saints' steam-rolling, it was Olindo Mare's kicking performance. The former Dolphin went 2-for-4. A half-game behind the Bucs in the NFC South, the Saints take on the 0-8 Rams this weekend.

10. New Orleans Saints 4-4 12 Having regained their swagger, the Saints are marchin' right back into that NFC South race.
Phew, it feels good to get that off my chest.

One more and I'm done...

ESPN: ESPN - NFL Power Rankings - National Football League

11 (19) Saints 4-4-0 Expect the Saints to make the playoffs. Why? Not only are they on a roll (four straight wins) but consider their second-half schedule: Five of their eight opponents are either last or tied for last in their respective divisions.

Blah, blah, blah.

You're right, they're gay. But it's an idicator that the "cheese" is being spread around again. I just hope the Saints have learned their lesson.

Re: The Power Rankings Post

The power rankings really do not mean very much, but still a decent indicator of how a team is currently playing, or at least the opinion of how a team is playing. All that matters in the end is the team that holds the trophy after the Super Bowl is complete.

Now, something that could be a little more interesting would be draft order if the season were to end today. That would really say where a team is at for the current moment.
