So how are the Patties at #2 when they should have lost to the bills

How are the Chargers at #6 when they looked like dog **** and almost lost to Oakland??

I just don't get it.

Apparently you haven't heard of ESPiN and their love affair with the Patriots. Secondly the Chuggers are sexy on paper so even if they win by one against the Arlington, VA school for the blind they will get mad props for it from the front runners at ESPN.

steelers go to OT and nearly lose against titans, #1. titans #9. pats pull miracle win to beat bills, they are #2, bills who almost dethrone pats, #21. ****ing retarded, espin is a joke. the saints DISMANTLE the lions and left several touchdowns on the field, #12. yea, its the lions, but they are an NFL team and the saints treated them like high schoolers.

Unless you are looking for a score or actual sport, I don't understand why people go to ESPiN for any information at all.

I have put this exact same argument to other people I know. We were very close to put the game away earlier, while the Patriots were behind all game and the chuggers couldn't pull away from Oakland.

No comments on the fact that we're the lowest ranked 1-0 team, behind SEVERAL 0-1 teams?

Interesting.

So, you think we should be ranked ahead of teams like Titans, Bears, Cards and Panthers. You're drinking too much orange kool-aide.

You could argue Denver over the Cards, Dolphins, Texans, Bills and Redskins. Even though I hate the Raider, I think they deserve a little more love than #27.

WHo cares? Werent we "dissed" last year in the rankings when at the end of the year, we were pretty much what the experts thougth. On paper and in the media, we are a troubled franchise. We didnt go beat Cowboys or any other Top 12 team. We beat a team that is ranked around what we are so we won a game that isnt looked at as a total upset. Here is another stat: No team has been selected to go to the playoffs based on Power Rankings in Pro Football. It is true. Look it up.

I wouldn't get bent too out of shape over rankings from a network who tries to push soccer and women's basketball on us.

Why does anyone still read anything from ESPN? All they are good for now is watching MNF.

A lot of teams looked better losing than we did winning. The rankings don't surprise me. The win is all that matters. Let's hope we play cleaner vs Cleveland, but in reality, if we fall ass first into lucky wins all season, who cares?

rather lucky then good. all season long. including playoffs and super bowl.

if it takes bull**** wins and lucky ass catches and interceptions to win a bunch of games, i dont think anywhere here would complain.

Panthers got shelled. SHELLED.

They don't even know who will be their starting QB this week.

The Texans didn't score a single offensive point, and let a rookie QB march up and down their backsides.

The Cards have yet to show me ANYTHING this season, and are probably the third best team in their division.

So yes, I think we should be at least three spots higher. Call me crazy. Call it kool-aide. Whatever. It's not my problem that you can't see the truth.

Oakland after a long time.. showed some effort on field. But we won because of a lucky play is what everyone says... I hate oakland but they played good ball... but our defense held up for 59 minutes and this is the same D that was torn apart by so called experts. So showing us some love as well would be good... but i like them treating us like underdog's. That will make this team, play for full 60 minutes.

Cleveland is good in special teams... we need to contain that and make brady throw..
