    In general I find that


    • Power rankings are an over-reaction, giving far too much weight to the last game and not enough to the entire body of work of the full season
    • There's too much superficial viewing of the final score - sort of the college football way of looking for style points rather than a win
    • There are too many writers attempting to stir the pot with at least one off the wall ranking



    They're fun to look at as a launching pad for discussion to pass the time until the next game. Beyond that they're meaningless.

    These guys must be setting some all time records considering the Pats are averaging 47ppg in their last 3.

    Sando is one of the biggest Manning homers.

    He does the MVP watch for ESPN too

    The Broncos are #3 in total offense and #6 in total defense. Peyton has been improving all year and is playing much better than he did in the Pats game early in the season. He'd win the MVP if the season ended today. And they have a cupcake schedule going forward.

    It's not at all unreasonable to put the Broncos ahead of the Pats right now. Personally I think they are very close. Putting either ahead of the other wouldn't upset me too much.

    The Patriots beat the crap out of the Denver Mannings earlier in the season. It's not unreasonable to put the Patriots ahead of the Mannings either.

    FWIW, I'd have the Patriots anywhere between 3rd to 6th juggling rankings.

    I just don't get the consensus view that Manning is the MVP so far this year. Is he playing excellent? yes. Does he have one of the best Def in the league? yes.

    Other QBs in the league have to truly carry their team or they would be nowhere. GB, NE and NO would be at the bottom of the league without their respective QBs.
