Stop this. The site's collective IQ dropped 5 points the moment "power ranking" was typed in.

It's an interesting way to rank teams. Takes some of the human bias out of it. Cowboys have one of the better records in the league but the poll ranks them as average.

Re: USA Today - Computer Rankings Saints #9

3 road loses by a combined total of 6 and we are < 20 on people's charts? I don't think so.


I don't care, but I don't think so

Re: USA Today - Computer Rankings Saints #9

how could this poll be accurate when Arizona (7-1) ranked 6th, below teams with at the most 3 losses? If you don't go by wins and lost then the saints should be above Green Bay

IDK, looks kinda' like your divisional standings meet strength of schedule, or something like that ... this is the kind of stuff what happens when you start letting the nerds hang around the locker room, .

Play all the games on Madden, eliminate any future injury lawsuits/liabilities, maximize profit, determine outcomes and be done with it, Roger.

Just as long as the computer allows us to play in the BCS title game, I'll be fine.
