What I find strange is that nobody even bothers to define what it is that the power rankings are suppose to illustrate???

Do they merely give out a grade of how the teams had done so far, basically a lightly tweaked version of the overall standings?

or

Are they suppose to forecast the future, and if so short term or long term?

The power rankings I see posted are clearly the former as opposed to the latter because they change too much too often to be relied on for speculation. They seem to be used as a Season in review for those who can't figure it out on there own based on the standings and the games you know, you actually watched.

They are so useless, but that is the NFL these days, they target the casual fan

This is what I see as well. Pats are playing good ball right now.
Guys its simple. Here is how NFL, CBS, ESPN etc etc make their Power Rankings.
step 1: Order the teams by standings

step 2: rearrange teams grouped together with same record, rearrange based on geography, East is always better than West

step 3: Identify 3 teams who are underperforming based on Mainstream Experts picks at the beginning of the season. These are the teams who the networks devote most of their coverage to regardless of if they win or lose. These teams can vary year to year, but more often contain the same teams for many years in a row. The Dallas Cowboys must always be one of these teams.

step 4: Move up the 3 struggling mainstream favorite teams a few spots in the rankings

step 5: assign a unique ranking to each with no ties

step 6: write some sophmoric b******t next to each team

step 7: release it, believe it or not people are actually waiting for thisI am betting the Saints are going to win tonight.

Here is your new basic power ranking for week 13. Excuse me for any mistakes I made with my US Geography....they use spatial data to ensure no mistake is ever made here.

  1. Packers
  2. 49ers
  3. Patriots
  4. Ravens
  5. Steelers
  6. Saints
  7. Cowboys
  8. Texans
  9. Bears
  10. Bengals
  11. Falcons
  12. Lions
  13. Jets
  14. Raiders
  15. Giants
  16. Titans
  17. Eagles
  18. Broncos
  19. Bills
  20. Redskins
  21. Browns
  22. Bucs
  23. Chiefs
  24. Cardinals
  25. Chargers
  26. Seahawks
  27. Panthers
  28. Dolphins
  29. Jaguars
  30. Vikings
  31. Rams
  32. Colts

Its just nice to see us in the top rather than at 30

We should have weekly mod power rankings.
And for the record, tebow, I mean.....yea, tebow, will be no 2. The media is all over his nuts even though the denver D is the bigger story.

Only team that would leapfrog us, if at all, would be the Pats.

Ravens lost to the Seascrubs (we shouldn't overlook them too) and the Saints lost to the Lambs (shouldn't overlook).

We lost to the 7-4 Boys and the 8-3 Ravens (don't forget the two bogus calls by the refs, the east coast trip *4-1*, and the short week).

Wow amazing! Two bogus calls ALL YEAR, and they both just happen to be against us and in the same game??? I'm sure ESPN goes over every game and factors in the calls that fans don't agree with - sure of it.

We got some favorable calls too, people tend to overlook that though when they are looking for excuses.

Negative! We will be #5...at best!

Packers - #4 on Offense - #30 on defense! All of a sudden, offense wins championships
Ravens - could be #3
Patriots - could be #2
Steelers - a team FULL of HOF's and could be #1 but the league doesn't want to make it too obvious
49ers - Eddie put a black eye on the NFL's image so we can't make them #1...unless we win the SB
