I try to think of Power Rankings as a predictor. I think it is folly for so called experts to post new power rankings every single week...making adjustments AFTER game outcomes...well that is easy.
I make 1 Power Ranking after the draft and 1 Final Version after week 3. I am willing to take credit later on correct predictions and eat crow on the dumb predictions.
Uh, no offense, but that list sucks.
thanks for the input....yours was great though...way to put your money where you mouth is
My Power Rankings were intended to be predictive...in other words I was thinking popular power rankings at week 17 would start to look close to what I predicted in early Oct.
#32 Lions 1-5 anyway you slice it they will be Repus Bowl contenders all season
#31 Browns 1-6 anyway you slice it they will be Repus Bowl contenders all season
#30 Bucaneers 0-7 Rebuild City
#29 Rams 0-7 Right on track
#28 Raiders 2-5 I saw a shocker or 2 in their season, they already have 1 in
#27 Dolphins 2-4 Great Prediction, not many thought they would be this bad
#26 Chiefs 1-6 I actually predicted the Chiefs to be the last team to get a win in 09
#25 Broncos 6-0 Blew this one, but so did everybody...I still think they have a losing streak in them
#24 Bills 3-4 pretty much on pace
#23 Falcons 4-2 Bad prediction. I really thought Ryan would hit a slump and Turner would burnout
#22 Texans 4-3 Texans were actually a pretty popular cinderella pick this year, not for me though
#21 Jaguars 3-3 pretty much on pace
#20 49ers 3-3 Niners pick is usually my most accurate, obviously I know them the best
#19 Vikings 6-1 My most emotional pick, I hate Favre I thought he was gonna throw a ton of picks...still not too late
#18 Redskins 2-5 worst than I expected
#17 Bengals 5-2 Puck....I had them ranked #13 and I got talked out of it...never do that
#16 Jets 4-3, right on pace not too many had them this high
#15 Panthers 2-4 worst than I expected
#14 Seahawks 2-4 much worst than I expected
#13 Ravens 3-3 pretty much on pace
#12 Bears 3-3 worst than I expected
#11 Saints 6-0 missed on this, I didn't seem achieving this level of balance
#10 Cardinals 4-2, right on target
#9 Titans 0-6 Everyone missed big on this one, they could easily finish .500 still
#8 Packers 4-2 So I gave the Norse to the Pack over the Vikes...still close here
#7 Cowboys 4-2 not far off
#6 Steelers 5-2 warmer
#5 Chargers 3-3...Norv is a waste of oxygen!!!
#4 Giants 5-2 not far off
#3 Eagles 4-2 much worst than I expected
#2 Colts 6-0 This is my Grand Slam pick, popular rankings barely kept them top 10 due to turmoil, I saw past that
#1 Patriots 5-2 not far off
11 close, 13 right on, 8 way off.
I think it is OK, still pissed about the Bengals, because I was citing them as my AFC playoff sneak in pick before the season started, but gradually dropped them in since then
My prized pick is the Colts, most experts refused to allow them to stay top 5
