Matt Miller power rankings

Eh, it's fun, but there's an undefeated team out there.  And while we beat the Hawks, 9ers, and Broncos, all I can say is that we are a top 5 team.  We should be undefeated in light of who we've beaten, but we're not.  So we don't deserve a #1 ranking.

You watch too much college football lol

From an article linked to on twitter:

 

Denver, Seattle and San Francisco are 17-1 against the rest of the league . . . and 0-3 against the Colts.

and that one is Seattle's win over San Fran so the only team to beat those three teams besides themselves is the Colts.

I totally agree the Colts should be no.1 if and when KC is to play any of those other teams and later on the Colts KC will lose. They almost lost today. The Colts can quite possibly depending on a few games go into the playoffs as no.1 overall. That would be awesome and a great advantage

lets start with beating the texans in Houston we haven't done that in three years.

lol actually, I hardly ever watch it.  BCS I absolutely loathe the BCS rankings system and the distinction between "automatic qualifiers" and "non-automatic qualifiers."  Power rankings are just for fun, but ultimately they are only some jokers word on who the best team is.  So they aren't a big deal.

    • Sleep in!    Having to be up at 2am to watch the last three games, it’ll be a nice change to not be shattered at work by mid afternoon on Monday!   Pumped for Week 15 though. Biggest Pats game since the AFCCG.
    • Hate is a very harsh word. But since I can't come up with anything harsher, let's stick with it!
    • I didn't like it either.  If I were in charge, I would have kept the playoff field at 6 teams each, and kept the season at 16 games.  However, I still would have made the season 18 weeks long, but with each team having two bye weeks instead.   Six teams have byes during weeks 4 to 7, four teams have byes during weeks 8 and 9.  Then have the same teams repeat their byes during weeks 10 to 13 and weeks 14 and 15 to promote fairness.   Weeks 16, 17, and 18 would have two Saturday flex games on NFLN featuring teams in the playoff hunt.   Increased tv revenue, players get the extra bye to rest/heal, added excitement for late season Saturday games, and the season stays balanced at 16 games.  Everyone wins - fans, players, and owners.
    • If they really want to go crazy and increase the parity, there's always the high school format where everyone plays in a playoff. Imagine the chaos that would cause with a 1-15-1 Lions team upsetting a 14-3 Cardinals team.    Would they go that far? Probably not, but I didn't think they'd actually go to 7, so it's all out on the table now. 
    • Late to the party in playing catch of reading things and not specific to this discussion, but yes this needs to get more recognition.    For any sport, especially those that are a series of "set pieces" there is the strategic as well as the tactical. So if we take cricket, you often have bowling plans for specific batters and often the ball that gets them out has been set up by the 2/5/10 ones bowled at them before. As an example, you might bowl a series of of short balls purposefully offering some easy runs to get the batsman almost into a automatic playing of that shot... then you sneakily move the fielder a few paces to be in the perfect position the next time.    Point being, a series of stuffed runs might not be a total failure if they keep the D 'honest' and at least having to account for the run. Put it another way, if you know a team's response to you stacking the box is they're going to just not run it, you've made them one dimensional and although you might show a stacked box you use it to bait them into a trap if you know it's going to be a passing play.    Not aimed at you obviously, just my 2 cents that it's not always black/white looking at things like this without nuance/context.
