Ok I won't continue to whine about it next week, but how does FoxSports allow this clown to continually post these ranking that are obviously based on a BCS piece of crap system. How in the hell is Denver No. 1? How in the hell is GREEN G-AY three spots in front of a team that has swept them and is 3 games in front of them? We trail G.B., Balt, Celv, Det. and Oak in these rankings. What a damn joke ... why do I keep looking at them dammmmmit .... WHY!!!!!!

Is that culumnist stoned?


Miami's first-round pick to Green Bay for Favre would turn the Dolphins into Super Bowl contenders and give the Packers two top-10 picks to start their rebuilding.

Who would give up a first round pick for ANY 35 year old player? :roll:

Shhhhhhh man .... keep this lil' thing we have with the Vikes quiet. Don't let the nation know we are doing well, this team excells when there are no expectations on it. Shhhhhhhhhhhh .....

To be honest the only rankings that are downright offensive are fox's. Who has a team drop after they win? We are the 19th best team in the eague right now so anything higher than 17 is realy unexpected.

I was really getting ready to go to bed until i read this CRAP. I'm sitting here thinking how the hell are the Pack a head of us we beat them 3 STRAIGHT times what else do we need to do to prove we are way better then them. And to have the Lions a head of us is just stupid. But that's alright let everybody keep picking aginst us well show them becasue come January 1st at about 4:15 est the Vikings will be NFC NORTH CHAMPS Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only thing that matters is getting into the playoffs. We are all 0-0 there.

Just goes to show that math and stats aren't always right. Are not often right...? Hmm, something like that.

I like how his ratings had the Colts at #6 last week, and since he didn't like that, he moved them up. Then that wasn't enough so he changed his formulas.

Pretty funny if you ask me.

I actually like that he would change the formula to try and make it better ... so I am not gonna bag on that that much ... but it obviously still needs ALOT of tweaking.

Stats are stats. If you got to "enjoy" the class in college it really helps understand that. I am impressed he came up with his formula....but just like the "Aikman's" and QB rating and such....a great big grain of salt is needed with them. All of them. Course, I have to say that I like them better than "intuitive" type rankings like Z's on SI.com. He just HATES the Vikings...had us ranked like 32nd a few weeks ago. At least the numbers game is impersonal.

That's freakin' hilarious!! It's like he put the Colts at #1 and picked the rest out of a hat.

Obviously his analysis is flawed...putting too much emphasis on stats that don't mean diddly. That's the problem with people who don't know anything about football, or sports in general for that matter. They think they can reduce the game to stats and leave emotions and momentum out of it. Doesn't work that way. This guy's computer needs a major overhaul.

I voted for Bush because of the Kerry supporters slogan "No more Bush!" :shock: That freaked me out!

I immediately had my mind made up. :grin:

I agree. Stats are stats, unless they're wins & loses.

It doesn't matter how many points you score or how many yards you gained, what matters is, did you win the game!
