WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? It's hard to justify being ahead of Oakland???? We're 4-1. They're 3-2. We're at +64 point differential- BEST IN THE LEAGUE...they're at +3 which is worse than MINNESOTA. As for what happened yesterday,Tampa>>>Houston (not to mention Houston didn't even have their best offensive OR defensive player). And they looked pretty good doing it?? They won by 5 and should have lost at the very end but got lucky because Schaub blew it. We took a BETTER team and smacked them around all day long for a 45 point win (which is tied for largest margin of victory in the NFL this year with Detroit's 48-3 win over KC...and needless to say, Tampa is WAAAAAY better than KC). Their other 2 wins are against s**tty ass Denver and s**tty ass NYJ, neither of which has had any impressive games this year. We beat Seattle (who won @NYG), @Cincy (above .500, gave Buffalo their only loss), @Philly (still a talented team, even though they're 1-4, all 4 losses have been to good teams), and Tampa (above .500, beat Atlanta, very competitive vs. undefeated Detroit). Also, our one loss was by 3 points and in overtime in a game we should have and deserved to win, even without both of our top receivers. Sorry, but there's NO WAY IN HELL Oakland deserves to be higher than us. The only team that clearly and definitively should be higher than us is Green Bay and there's NO way we SHOULD be excluded from the top-5.
