Cbs Power Ranking And It Makes The South Look Bad.

At number 26 the bucs:

They looked horrible in the first half against the Redskins. But Josh Freeman and the passing game came alive in the second, which is a good sign.

separating these teams: Jags and colts!

at number 29, the panthers:

At least we know Cam Newton can still put up big numbers, but that loss at Atlanta will hurt for a while.

separating these 2 teams the phins..

But holy crap.... this is some insane joke.

at number 31......the Saints?

They still competed at Green Bay, which is a good sign, but at 0-4, they are in a huge hole they might not get out of the rest of the way.

Only team left on that list was the browns.

They must love the falcons because the falcons blew that game and they still stayed at #2 behind the Texans.

Good teams need games like they had against the Panthers. That's a good sign, being able to win the way they did.

Followed by the cards and 49`ers.

I know this has alot to do with record.... but come on. The South isnt that bad. All the games went down to the wire and were all close.

Power ratings have nothing to do with anything. If Power Ratings is all you have to complain about, then count your blessings. You could have just been embarrassed at "home" in front of more visiting fans than home fans to the tune of 34-18.

The cowboys scored again? I stopped watching.

cards looked bad too otherwise we probably would have dropped

But if you have 1 of the worst teams the panthers basically kick the #2 teams butt and lose in the last 60 secs. Thats kinda a bum rep for someone.

The Saints have been in every game and they sit at the bottom with the browns?

I've always thought they were interesting to talk about on the same level as opinion articles. i don't know why people get all bent over em. they mean nothing .

Agreed, its just something to talk about. We could talk about last night. But there is plenty of people doing that and that was a tough pill to swallow for cowboy fans.

Reminds me of the NCAA polls. If the #5 team in the nation barely beats the #11 team, the #11 team falls in the polls. WHY? The other team being #5 means they were considered better than the #11 team. Why is the #11 team penalized for losing to a team they were (by all accounts) supposed to lose to. I will never understand that.

Its all good, we understand. Tough game to watch on national TV.

Well Panthers got a taste of that pie Thurday vs the Giants. The saints are taking smaller slices of the cake with 0 wins. The Bucs.... well they are the Bucs. Then there is the heart attack falcons from last year. Getting Ryan killed but still pulling a trick out there butt to win in our house.

Its a odd year for sure. Tough year for a lot of fans. especially here since the South was considered 1 of the best devisions in the NFL.

The Saints are ranked correctly, eventhough I know these rankings don't mean much in the long run. This team is fielding one of the worst defenses this league has seen in years maybe all time and it's one of the main reasons why they have the record they currently have. Being in every game only to lose each one is not a consolation prize because if they were to have even a semblance of competent defense they would have at least won two of these last four games. Again, I'm not about to start screaming it's over for them until they are officially mathematically eliminated, but right now it's not looking good for them, so we'll see.

Its Prisco. He takes the easy route.

It doesn't have alot to do with record...it has everything to do with record as he seems to form record tiers and then ranks within them.

The point though is the Saints can hang with any team. Which means they could beat any team. They sure dont play like the next to worst team in the NFL. The worst teams in the NFL should not be able to hang with the big name teams and have close ones.

Panthers took it to the #2 team on the list and had that game in their grasp. But yet they deserve to be 1 of the worst teams?

The bucs played a lower rank team and barely lost yet they are still ranked higher than both the Panthers and the Saints all 3 at the very bottom.

I know these list dont mean jack and someone has to be at the bottom. Winless is also tough to ignore. But still the team could easily be undefeated. They have been in all the games.

How did they determine the Browns where the worst and the saints are every bit as bad as the brown? If any team in the South has the players to get hot its the Saints. The Panthers are talented but likely to crack under pressure.

The Bucs are rebuilding so gotta give them a lil pass.

PFT has just posted their power poll

2. Falcons: The road to the Superdome will be going through the Georgia Dome.

21. Panthers: A team that has nothing to lose can’t afford to play like it has something to lose.

23. Buccaneers: A team that loses 13 of 14 games shouldn’t be surprised when it loses customers.

28. Saints: The scoreboard says World 4, Saints 0.

Worth noting is the Saints played the

7. Packers: The offense is getting closer to finding the accelerate. And the pedal will be pressed to the metal.

The panthers played the #2 team

and the bucs played 20. Redskins: A dramatic ending doesn’t completely obscure the collapse that preceded it.

But the Panthers should be above the bucs if score was given vs ranking of opponent. Honestly i say the Saints should be higher than the bucs given how close their games where vs GB.

But id say their PFT power ranking is better than CBS who clearly didnt think out their list at all really.

The #1 criteria of any power ranking has to be wins/losses.

Its the only way to maintain credibility.

If the Saints had actually beaten Green Bay, then the opponent can be considered cause then you can add weight to the win.

Same thing with Carolina, playing close still resulted in a loss.

They were who they were before the game started and probably worse than that.

If another team leapfrogged them by actually winning, then you cant credit the loser for coming close.

Which leads me to believe that the Cards should be rated higher than the Falcons.

Both have the same amount of wins, but Cards wins have come against decidely higher rated opponents.

Falcons should probably be close in strength of schedule, except the only team KC & Carolina has beaten are the Saints...

who are the 2nd worse team in football so far.

Won/loss at the top of the power. But at the bottom does it matter if you won a game or not? If your at the bottom of the NFL your doing something wrong and just because you somehow got a win, doesnt amount to a better team.

When you look at teams not win/loss this season but last season on which the schedule is based. So a weak team last season getting a weak schedule. Should not be ranked higher than a high ranking team getting one of the toughest schedules in the NFL.

Thats why we call games upsets when a crappy team defeats a great team. Crappy teams get crappy schedules the next year. They might not even play the really good teams unless they make postseason. So for top power teams yes a huge part could be contributed to wins as to define them.

But for the bottom feeders. You say well they haven't won a game, when you can take a handful or more teams and give them the Saints schedule and they wouldn't only lose, but they would get their doors blown off.

But its not a perfect world and there isnt a perfect power poll. Like stats you can bend a players stats every which way, but if the team cant win. They dont matter.

When you take away their wins over the Saints, the Saints opponents have won 2 games.

Since the Saints havent won any, the Saints should be the crappiest team in this weeks power rankings.

They beat out Cleveland, but Cleveland lost a 1 point game to Philly who is 3-1.

You want to give the Saints credit for coming close to beating Green Bay who is 2-2???

Ok, but that doesnt mean they arent at the bottom of the power rankings and dont deserve to be there.

Clevelands opponents have won 7 games outside of their Cleveland wins.

The Saints opponents have won 2 games outside of their Saints wins.

Not sure if the Saints arent EXACTLY who the power rankings have them made out to be...

and probably a little worse.

World 4 Saints 0 is a great line.

As much trash as we talk to the saints and panthers and even the bucs it is foolish to write any of them off.

Yeah the saints and panthers have horrible defenses but both have the offensive skill players to keep up with ANY offense in the nfl.

And when Freeman gets goes he looks every bit as good as people hope he should be.

The problem with all of them is just being consistent.

Still though all 3 have the ability to beat any team they play because of the play makers and skilled position players.
