Exactly. I don't care at all about rankings this early in the season, but seeing the aints last is pure gold.

I don't really care either, but really somebody has to bring up who the Texans are dominating. They beat the Broncos by the same margin we did, but owning the Titans, Jags and Dolphins isn't hard for a good team. I wouldn't be surprised if the Pack and Ravens both beat them.

pretty sure theres no such thing as half a week of games

Yes. You only need 2 of Texan's prior opponents to win and two of ours lose for our opponents records to match. That means 4 games, which is less than half a week of games. In other words, there's not much difference between 7-5 and 5-7 because by 3 PM this Sunday, we could be tied or even behind.

The difference between 7-5 and 5-7 is half a week of games.

You mean TD-INT ratio?

People have been hyping the hellout of the texans. not sure if its warranted, but nothing to be bothered by.

It's not. The media is going off them being a playoff team last year without Schaub, getting Schaub back, Watt's dominance and their stats. They destroyed 3 teams that will be picking in the top 10 next year...

No, the aggregate record of our opponents. The difference between 7-5 and 5-7 in a 16 game season is much larger than the difference between 7-5 and 5-7 when your opponents play an aggregate of 256 games.

Neither is owning the Chargers and Chiefs...if anything, struggling against the Panthers should knock us down to second

The Panthers are a solid divisional foe that had 10 days to prepare and a media induced chip on their shoulders. Sorry but that shouldn't. The Rams beat the Cards handily. I don't think the Rams are a better team, but they are a divisional opponent and those games always mean more and the teams get up for it.
