Hey, You are right... can't argue that point at all just gives a bit of a head start to get into the play offs really. We could still be watching every other team in the post season except us.

And they don't choose the Superbowl participants based upon the opinion of guys who mostly scream at the camera like they are selling used cars.

The difference between the best and the worst in the NFL is a very slim margin.

A win is a win. Nine wins in a row is a major achievement. The difference in a close game with the Rams and a blowout is two plays.

In high school Coaches make adjustments on Saturday. In college, coaches adjust at half time. In the NFL coaches adjust between plays or they lose - Danny Smith, Washington Redskins

In South Park terms, Power Rankings are Gay and the people who write about them are Fags (not homosexuals, though they may be that as well, I can't care less about that.)

When did this cirjirk become a cottage industry?

There is no fine line from the best NFL to the worse NFL team???
What is that. The best team in the NFL are 9-0 both those teams are 8 games better than the worse teams in the NFL. Thats pretty decisive. Granted a 1-8 team could bite one of the 9-0 teams but when you count W-L there is no chance of polls getting it wrong or showing favor-ism. Thats the beauty of NFL football a win is a win is a win. They can't take it from you and it sets you apart.

I don't know. What does Brees being picked the Fedex air player of the week mean? Sharper being picked for the Pro Bowl? Nothing really in terms of a Superbowl. The general public thinks highly of Brees and Sharper. They had good seasons or a good week. Pretty much the same with power rankings. Does it really annoy that many people?
