    I think he means Power Rankings. The Pats have been the favorites in most of the games they've played recently and that hasn't stopped them, so why would these fraudulent power rankings have any affect on the games?

    To borrow from Crumpler, there are no power rankings in the Bill Belichick Times. :D

    Ah ha! Thank you very much :)

    And if you wouldn't mind do you know what "A L" in the title means?

    Last time Brady played against Green Bay, he threw 4 TDs and no Ints in a win.

    I think A means a and L means Loss?

    Basically the OP was saying we don't do well when we are #1 in the Power Rankings. in response, I think the Veterans and a sound drubbing by the Browns put an end to the fact this team (no team) can expect to show up and win.

    Good lord thank you! My brain kept seeing "AL vs. The Packers". I was all like who the hell is Al? Al Davis? :D

    You weren't the only one; I thought this was a thread about some feud between Al Davis and the Packers too!

    Thanks to all who translated for the rest of us.


    Back to the OP: were the Patriots not first in most power rankings after beating the Jets - or prior to then? I don't follow them that closely but I would have thought the Patriots would have been ranked first then - and possibly previous to that as well.

    As far as 'not fitting well in the favorite role', I think the Pats are about 10-2 in games they have been favored to win this year.
