Default Power Rankings... with a twist!

So I was looking at the power rankings over at ESPN to see where we were and our divisional rivals as well. I was quite happy, and surprised really, to see that we had made the top ten. By surprised I mean that there are so many people still dogging Tebow that I thought we might be somewhere closer to 15.

Anyways, I got to looking up the list and a strange thing started happening. I looked at 9 (Cowboys) and went, "we could beat them." Then I looked at 8 (Falcons) and I though, "we could beat them too!" This trend continued until I got to number 5 (Steelers), and then it changed into, "man, that would be a hell of a game."

Then it struck me, these crazy thoughts in my head. Just how long had it been since I had looked at the top 5 teams in the league and thought it would be great to take them down. During the entire McD tenure, and even the end of the Shanny Era, I LOATHED playing big competition because it meant two thing: getting our butts kicked, and, getting our butts kicked on national TV.

But now, that has all changed. Now we have a team that is competitive and is maybe a few key players away from being a contender all over again. Back to winning divisions and making playoff pushes.

Not too bad for an ESPN Power Ranking.



And just in case you were wondering:

1. Packers
2. Ravens
3. 49ers
4. Saints
5. Steelers
6. Patriots
7. Falcons
8. Texans
9. Cowboys
10. Broncos

Rookie coach rebuilding a team ought to get a 3 year tenure, well this season is McDaniels 3rd year... This is his team... Elway hijacked it, midway through.

It would be interesting to hear who MCD says he would have selected with our first round pick we used on Miller.

So Elway was responsible for inserting Tebow the first time?

He would have traded it to the patriots for randy moss and their first. The first he would have traded to the raiders to move up for Virgil Green

Oh, I would think this is I McBleed Orange and Blue alternate account but then he could post this dumb in his first account. If it isnt him, he has found a real dumb **** of a friend. Why he is on ignore. You just witnessed a McD troll. Amazing someone might actually think that he deserved a 3rd year after what we have seen this season. McD sucks as a head coach. Add offensive coordinator not named the Patriots to that list too.

No way. Even him not being here would be a ****ing nightmare of what could have unfortunately been if he was still around.

I don't like the ranking, underdog is much better.

Don't mean to be a wet blanket, but this run reminds me of Josh's 6-0 start in 2009. You know we're winning and winning, you just can't figure out how.
