  • Playoff Team Rankings

    Found this interesting. The ranking system and rankings are silly but a good way to start some discussion.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/playof...ory?id=4804814

    I am suprised that they have the Bolts coming out last. A bit harsh ranking Norv (the Chargers all time post season winner I think) under a rookie head coach like Ryan. Also I would think a team with the nfl all time leader in field goal percentage, Mike "I beat the colts by myself" Scifres, Sproles and Osgood that their ST would actually be much higher.

    What do people think of Childress giving the Vikings the bye week off?

    The way these ranking are made up is ridiculous imo. Its like saying well on paper you have the best talent so you must be the better team going into the playoffs.

    The Chargers should be arguably between 1-3

      We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

        There is so much wrong with that I don't even know where to begin.

          I have never seen a worse way to rank a team.

            I agree with this but I thought it was a good way to get discussion going before the postseason starts. Pretty much the most interesting thing for me was the vikings getting the week off. Especially considering the amount of hate Romo got for going to Mexico.

                Um when you put that together and the Bolts are the worst offense in the playoffs, that's when you shrug and scrap the article.

                  Wow at how much he has overrated the Vikes. How are our ST in the top 5, nevermind #2. We are abysmal at kick coverage.

                  Our OL is certainly not that good, or at least I would hope for the other teams sake that it isnt and Ed Reed and Merriweather alone make the Pats and Ravens secondaries better than ours. Certainly got the coach rating right though.

                  That said, if you put anything like this together and come up with the Chargers as the worst team, you should probably rethink the whole system. Then again it could be said that this system vastly overrates the importance of the RB, WR, LB, ST and Coach by putting them all on the same level as QB and OL play.


                  Props to BK on the sig!

                        I would put the Saints WR/TE vs. Vikings and San Diegos any day. The Saints 4th best? Maybe but thats a stretch... He puts them 4th bu in the RB post of his he puts
                        "Some might think the Saints are ranked a little high at No. 3, but Reggie Bush is their X factor. The Saints are another team where offensive balance will be key"
                        So he dont even remember what # he put them.
                        LBs who does Minny have now that Hendersons out? Greenway makes them better then Vilma? Who do the Colts even have? Is brackett still there? And Payton as 4th best Coach? Maybe too high. He sucks with his challenges.

                          What a terrible way to rank teams. No weighting at all, no acknowledgment of team's schemes or gameplanning. He just assigned some positions a number between 1 and 12 and added and said "here are the best and worst teams!" This guy must play too much Madden.
