    When I read the red zone rankings I was shocked. Then I looked at how many times opponents have been in the red zone. In three games only FIVE times.

    "Still rankings are not an exact science so feel free to EMAIL us with complaints, comments, or formulas of your own."

    contact@smtsports.com

    LMAO whoever had the final say on this is an idiot, The Patriots have the #1 ranked Offense and Defense (YPG) in the league and have already beat two playoff teams from last year NYJ,SD and your comparing them to Pittsburgh? Pittsburgh has beaten Cleveland, Buffalo and SF 3 non playoff teams.

    Is this another site that makes dumb picks for attention?

    They missed a part of the equation.

    They forgot to multiply by the number of bong hitd they've each taken over the course of their lives.

    I think Dr. Borges and Dr. Felger at the ESPN Clinic designed this formula. It is about the only way the Pats wouldn't be #1.

    You know there's a problem with the rankings when the browns are ranked ahead of the bears.

    I personally thought the mention of the Patriots in other teams rankings was equally amusing.

    #6 Seattle Seahawks "If not for a botched handoff, the
    Seahawks would be right behind the
    Patriots."

    #17 Carolina Panters "Delhomme's excellent early play has
    resulted in the Panthers ranking second
    in QB rating only behind Tom Brady and
    the Patriots."

    #31 Buffalo Bills "To
    make matters worse, they now without
    starting quarterback J.P. Losman thanks
    to a cheap shot by Patriots DT Vince
    Wolfork who should have received at
    least a one game suspension not
    a $12,000 fine "

    Talk about the Patriots getting under the skin of people!

    What I'd REALLY like next from these idiots is a 31 team ranking with nothing but Pats comments on how they affect their ranking.


    #1 Indianapolis Colts "They really showed those Patriots last year!" etc....

    That power ranking is a joke and their envy for the true #1 team in the NFL is comical.

    Colts have not gotten off to a faster start than the Pats. How stupid.

    It's a Patriots hater's site. See the Bills:

    "they now without (great grammar BTW) starting quarterback J.P. Losman thanks to a cheap shot by Patriots DT Vince Wolfork who should have received at least a one game suspension not a $12,000 fine."

    Also:

    "Nothing creates a controversy quite like power rankings. We've read a bunch and even participated in a few before, but for the most part they are just a compilation of biases and pre-determined beliefs."

    Um, yeah...

    Hey, don't be too hard on these guys. The kid that runs this site, Mark Sandritter, originally exposed Ron Borges' plagiariasm.

    Well the kid that wrote that power ranking was a moron. If they're one in the the same, so be it.

    His power rankings formula might be flawed, but he's still massively in credit with me for removing Mr Borges from civilised society.

    I love how the who thing is "divided by", Red Zone defense........

    Lets not bother to "facter in" the larger point that our defense is allowing a score (or Red Zone trip) every 2.4 quarters, while simultaniosuly scoring 1.5 times EVERY QUARTER. He' does bring up an important concern; Red Zone Defense, however, I'd think it a little more realistic to look at the larger picture, unless you are lookng to skew facts a different way.

    Gee, I wonder if he was trying to do that. :rolleyes:

    I think the formula certainly needs some tweaking, but for the people who are suggesting that this person consciousy tailored their formula to make the Patriots look bad. Well, that's just stupid. Are you the same people that still believe the sun revolves around the earth? :confused:
