Looks like we're begrudgingly #8 in their weekly power rankings. SI.com's NFL Power Rankings, Week 9 - Dr. Z - SI.com In other bits and pieces around their site this week: The NFL is more fun because Tom is injured? Fail: sucks to lose, but hardly the upset of the year. Maybe if Tom was in the game. Did this pretend to be a compliment in order to insult Seau? I find it difficult to understand all the dislike. Is it because we're not so far suffering the SB curse? Is it because with 3 starters on IR and and even with several chunks of play-time being filled in by rookies and has-been's we're 5-2? If people want to believe "Karma" had it's way with us, fine. We don't get to celebrate wins before the games are played this year. But I hope the message gets delivered soon: we don't plan to stop winning. Randy's quote seems more apt to me all the time about the Haters. I don't know exactly what it was, but I assume most of you remember it. I know it's a long shot, but if we win the SB this year, it will make this season and 2001's SB season historic moments of a scrappy, intelligent team rubbing the NFL's collective face in sh!t. Maybe I just need more coffee. Go Pats.
