LOL@power rankings

An amusing reminder of how stupid power rankings are...

Washington post has us DROPPING 2 places after the win over GB. Steelers went up 6, and the Vikings ROCKED past us with that HUGE win in OT over TB.

Haha...Derp!???!

These media goons don't know what to make of the Saints and the NFC South.

Makes for funny reading anyway...

Re: LOL@power rankings

Neil Greenburg must be a Packers fan; how else do you explain dropping two spots after a pretty dominating win?!

Re: LOL@power rankings

"Each week, Neil Greenberg will give his NFL power rankings based on myriad metrics, including traditional stats that reflect recent performance such as margin of victory and strength of schedule to more advanced metrics you would find at Football Outsiders, Pro Football Focus and Advanced NFL Analytics"


K...clearly he is an idiot.

He could be butt hurt Viqueens fan, lauding their success and hating on the Packers for losing to Saints 'cheats' ...0_o

I dunno. Im trying to figure out these advanced metrics he uses... Like Saints losing by a combined total of 6 points in 3 roads games in the last 1-2 minute of games.

Clearly we are in most games, except the Dallas blowout.

Im looking forward to the back end of the season with our home-game-heavy schedule.

Hopefully, Greenberg can keep bringing the lols.

Re: LOL@power rankings

First of all the dude can't be bothered to make a little commentary about each team with a one sentence reason as to why the moved. Second of all the "article" is just a dude on a word processor just moving around teams (at random) I guess. It's not even an article. It's nothing.

He says the rankings are not related to win/loss or knee jerk reactions. But I don't see any stats that could possibly compile Dallas to move up one spot after last nights loss, Miami is better than the Patriots... I could go on and on.

I think Power Rankings are crap to start with, but this one really is laughable!!!

Re: LOL@power rankings

... luv me a good "power rankings" ... there is something fundamentally wrong with a winless team (0-7 OAK), losing, and still moving up the rankings 4 places from #30 to #26, .

Re: LOL@power rankings

I was going to start a thread that encompassed the concept that we have been mercifully spared pointless and idiotic threads about "Power Rankings" for the last 6 weeks.

Then you had to go and stupid the whole joint up.

Well done.

Re: LOL@power rankings

I still can't see why people even care about this crap. Its all made up BS. They mean absolutely NOTHING. All that matters is your win - lost record.

Heck even in the NCAA rankings don't mean anything. A room full of people get to decide who plays for the national championship.
