SI Power Rankings
Last Week: 29
Denver Broncos (0-1)
The final score of Denver's loss to Oakland was close (23-20), but the most ominous indication of trouble ahead for the Broncos was their inability to either run the ball (38 yards) or stop the run (the Raiders rushed for 190). Those are staples of a John Fox-coached team, and it didn't help in the least that quarterback Kyle Orton turned back into a pumpkin in that orange Broncos jersey.

Same thing every year. I'd feel weird disagreeing with that ranking. We're terrible.

How did KC avoid being ranked 32?

while we are a bad team, our loss was not quite on the level as what happened in Arrowhead on Sunday.

At least there is some reason for optimism, Tebow.

I think it's justified. Hard to argue with it after a 4-12 season.

I know. We lost by 3 and were in it until the end. They got raped at home by the Bills.

KC might've hung in there if Buffalo gave them a half billion first downs on penalties.

how does KC stay out of that bottom spot?

Bills fans were literally laughing in the 2nd half at the Chiefs ineptitude...and that happened at Arrowhead

We'll continue to be in the bottom few until someone has the BALLS to make a change of who leads this team!

It's like Friday Night Lights and Orton is a less talented Matt Saracen.

So when the media tells you how stupid you are for chanting for Tebow you just dismiss it and say that they don't know what they're talking about, but when they put out these meaningless power rankings you actually care where you're ranked?

Poor example, Saracen led them to a state title./

Let's not kid ourselves. The only reason that game wasn't a blow out was because the Raiders seemed to lack discipline. They had about 15 penalties to add to our 10. In reality, the Broncos dropped the soap but were lucky the big black man that was ready to run up in them slipped.

Why do you expect different? Maybe 31? Or even 30? Still - you're at the bottom of the barrel...

This is kind of funny. Seriously, we're pissed we're not ranked 31 instead? Really?

This was my first thought as well. Then it hit me--this is what it's come to in Denver.

As a fan I'm now worried about not being the #32 ranked team out of 32 in SI? Jesus Christ, what the hell happened to this franchise?

F*ck, it doesn't seem that long ago that we were perennial contenders. I'm 38, so not an old man yet, and as a kid, young adult and throughout most of my adult life we were a model franchise. Now we're a steaming pile of Orton dung.

Thanks McDummy, Bowlen, Xanders, Orton, and whoever the hell else is responsible for this dumpster fire I root for every week in the fall.

Rant over, for now.

Maybe the dude who did the power ranking left the KFC game in the 3rd quarter with the other sister lovers in a Camero?

Or they just are giving KFC time to fall to the depths because they "won" the division last year.

This was never a 3 point game. The Raiders defense moved the ball for us more effectively than our offense.

What is funnier is that Indy was ranked 22 despite their QB having back to back fumbles. They are a team who will plummet to the bottom once it is clear that Manning has to retire.

Indianapolis Colts (0-1)
No matter what folks in Indy might claim, it seems the entire Colts organization is still in shock and going through the early stages of severe Manning withdrawal. As bleak as things look on offense, the first order of business in this week's home opener against Cleveland should be to get more aggressive on defense and try to create some momentum on that side of the ball. But that's where the Cover-2 scheme, which is designed more to play with the lead, works against Indy as well.

Raiders had short fields because of turnovers and the blocked kick. If we forced them to drive 80 yards we could have won. At least when our D was backed up this year they didn't cave like they have the last 3-4 years.

I dont think anyone is exactly upset about a meaningless power poll, but it is hard to understand how Denver could be put last over that loss when the likes of Indy, KC and Seattle are out there. Granted, they deserve to be in the discussion and are a terrible team, but if yor going to publish a meaningless rankings in a national publication and all you have to back it up is 1 weeks worth of stats, there are other garbage franchises that stunk worse is all I am saying.

Rank us 29th or even 30th but not 32.
