They're baaaaaaaaaaaack. No, not the ghosts, but your power rankings.

 

I know there are a lot of new folks out here and a lot of the old folks are gone. So, here's a bit of history to the power rankings.

This is my 4th season doing NFL power rankings.

 I only rank the top 10 teams, because does it really matter who is ranked 27th? I don't have the time or patience to rank all 32 teams. I want to put out a quality blog...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

 Sorry for that interuption, but whenever I use the words "quality blog" in my blo........

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Dang it. The blog starts laughing at me.

Where was I? Oh yeah I was splaining. I try to change things up each season, and this one is no different.

This season I will be adding computer rankings. The computer rankings are done using a secret formula I created that is applied equally to all teams. It then spits out the results. You will see several difference bewteen the two rankings. My rankings are very subjective(the rules are explained below), while the computer is cold and has no feelings, nor does it watch the games. It only applies the formula.

I prefer my rankings over the computer rankings. But we'll see which ones FN likes better.

Before I post thr rankings, here are the rules:

1. These are my rankings.

2. They are based solely on my opinion and fully represent the opinions of this blog.

3. If you don't like them, write your congressman

4. I never have nor ever will change them based on public opinion

5. The rankings never have nor will ever be based soley on a teams win-loss record

Now for the Week 1 Power Rankings

  1. Saints (1-0) - They are the defending champs. Until they are beaten they stay on top. The SB winner has always started out #1 in my rankings and will do so forever.
  2. Patriots (1-0) - I guess Welker answered all of our questions. But then again they were only playing the Bengirls.
  3. Packers (1-0) - Anyone besides me frantically searching the waiver wire in FF leagues for a new starting RB?
  4. Texans (1-0) - This is the highest they have ever been in my rankings. That's what getting a 200 pound gorilla off your back will do.
  5. Ravens (1-0) - Yeah it was an ugly game, but what did you expect. The Ravens are not going to blow very many people out. They are good at exposing posers at quarterback though.
  6. Colts (0-1) - Does one person really make that much of a difference to a team? Here's history lesson for you. The last time the Colts had a pitiful run defense, they won the Superbowl. Just sayin....
  7. Chargers (0-1) - Yeah they lost a heartbreaker to the Griefs, but I still believe they are the best team in the AFC West. Sorry Kitty.
  8. Titans (1-0) - OK, whoever took the real Vince Young please bring him back. That guy the Titans had on the field Sunday actually resembled a quarterback.
  9. Steelers (1-0) - Yes it was an ugly win. But did you really expect Dennis Dixon to light it up? Be grateful Steeler nation that they won a game most people didn't think they would win.
  10. Giants (1-0) - Hmmm, let's see if that was the real Giants or if they were the benefactors of playing the Kittens.
  11. LoveitHateit (267-0) - She finally clawed and scracthed her way to the top.

Ok, now let's see what the cold, heartless computer spits out:

  1. Saints
  2. Cardinals
  3. Packers
  4. Dolphins
  5. Seahawks
  6. Ravens
  7. Patriots
  8. Texans
  9. Bears
  10. Redskins

See what I mean?

OK, that's it for now FN'ers. If you like the blog tell your friends about it and come back next week. If you hate it tell your friends about it and let them make up their own mind. then come back and see if it changed for the better.

See you next week. Same Bat time, same Bat channel.

Chargers IB? I think that ball you're chewing on has toxic air in it!

Hello Kitty

I thought it tasted funny.

You need Ipecac, stat!

Seriously, Chargers should be #10, if listed at all IMO. I wonder if Rivers' temper tantrum will cause the o-line to forget to block this weekend.

September 15, 2010  01:09 PM ET

Hmmm, maybe I should take temper tantrums into account for my rankings. I have a feeling he will get sacked a couple of extra times Sunday

I definitely think you should. Tantrums and crying. Cause there ain't no crying in football.

So, have you recovered from that horrific loss to Washington? You didn't kill your TV with the remote control did you?

I threw the TV through the remote. I still can't believe that idiotic play call and fumble just before the half. I was yelling at the TV for Choice to just go down. Seriously. I used to love the guy but now he is someone for me to poop on

Poor remote. That had to hurt.

That play was the difference maker in the game. No fumble/TD, Dallas wins. I think some blame needs to go to Romo too though. He's a vet and should have known that play was blown up.

Yeah, I agree. Romo should have just threw it away. But Romo's hero was Farvruh and he's playing just like him.

On the bright side though, the defense played solid.

On the not so bright side, what happened to the Raiders that looked good in the pre-season?

Ugh. Thought I would escape any Raider references. So much for diversion...

The Titans are a tough team. I didn't expect the Raiders to win, but I sure expected them to play better. I'm hoping that they just need time to establish chemistry and rhythm. This weekends game vs the Rams should provide that opportunity.

September 15, 2010  02:00 PM ET

Yeah, sorry about that. Noting like playing the Rams to give your team some confidence.

September 15, 2010  02:02 PM ET

Don Banks has his rankings out now. Overall, I'm too far off from him.

Ha! Raider fans have to take what they can get, IB :-)

OK, it's been great talking to you Kitty, but I've got to head out to school. (Physics and Statistics this semester)

I can't understand the love affair with the Jets. I realize Baltimore has a great defense and all, but their offense was non-existent. Six first downs? Even the Raiders had more than that!
