I like to read the blurbs about each team. Its no different than 90% of the threads on every NFL site. Its an opinion of what someone thinks of your team, as well as other teams.

Why do people get their panties in such a wad over power ranking posts?
It was a trap! Had "power" been in the subject line I wouldn't have clicked.

So you don't have a problem with ranking the 32 teams, just power ranking the 32 teams?

Makes sense.

So ranking individuals is somehow less ghey than ranking the teams?

They're either all ghey, or not ghey.

And yes, I need something...

Not necessarily, the rankings of individuals usually involves stats and I'm a stat whore. Therefore I find there to be intrigue. The ranking of teams with the subjective "power" concept is normally pure biased opinion for the most part, with little regard to anything other than perception.


I know you listen to NFLSirius, ever heard Pat Kerwin refer to his power rankings? I'm paraphrasing but it's more 'my power rankings that I do because the network makes me do them' , than anything he believes in...

Power Rankings are done to generate traffic to websites because people eat it up.... Ever head them read over the radio, in news print, shown on TV? I haven't...

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

I rarely hear any top 10 lists on the radio either, but no one ever complains about those, and they are every bit as biased opinions as power rankings and every bit as meaningless.

In fact, I'd bet 90% of all threads on sports forums are about someone's opinion about something.

But for some reason power rankings posts are ridiculed and the rest aren't. Sorry, but that seems dumb. Maybe it makes people feel superior by degrading them. Thats kinda sad and pathetic in my opinion, especially when they know its a power ranking thread.

Anyhoo, those that can, play. Those that can't, act like they can.

On a few power rankings I saw we lost a spot on a BYE week.... If someone can make sense of that, I'll read them all from now on. For what it is worth, I do not do mock drafts either.


That being said, I know I have seen you ridicule power rankings before Danno.

Well I was mostly ridiculing the posters who ridicule the rankings, as it appears they actually think they mean something toward playoff seeding, like BCS standings.

I swear I think some posters actually think others look at the power rankings as if they determined playoff seeding.

We all know they don't mean anything, yet some posters insist on stating that ad nauseum as if some of us do think they mean something. Thats who I usually take a jab at.

Re: PFT Rankings - Saints 5th

Meh, I like 'em, in kind of a 'National Enquirer' sort of way ... I do think this is the first one I saw for this week that didn't have the Saints at #1, so they either know something the others don't or they're totally out of the loop, .
