I would say they are all worthless but that being said the NFLs rankings only take into account 2012... while the one I posted takes into account 2013 power rankings.. Power rankings are as worthless as strength of schedule but excluding anything from 2013 completely and just going off of how teams finished in 2012 is a whole lot weaker data set for the 2013 season.

A quote from right above your chart : "Of course, we realize this is based on last year's records and things change. ".. The draft and personnel movement in the off season effect teams in 2013 more than the previous years records.. Hence the power rankings take into effect those things.

Lower on the page he does show the same chart you have from the NFL with the same rankings.

Being from the NFL really does not add any validity for me.

I think starting off with AtlFal, divisional , is a bit rough.
I am not saying the Saints cannot whoop them.
First season game, ehh.
Hey, Saints beating them , first game of season, could be a real momentum thing too.

Yep,
Was their 2012 finish skewed by other factors?
Did they have a tough schedule in 2012?
Did they have a patsy schedule in 2012?
Were some teams missing key players?
Did some teams have excessive injuries?
Were they extremely close in their losses?
Did they address key areas in the offseason?
Did they have a lot of roster turnover?

Did they have a nuclear bomb like distraction during the season?
Was their head coach friggin suspended for the entire year?
Was their interim coach suspended for 1/2 a season?
Was their GM suspended for 1/2 a season?

Strength of Schedule is meaningless compared to the above questions.
