Default Now Number 2 in the Power Ratings

I know these dont matter, but i would love to see us stay there or go back to number 1 for the rest of the season, as Atlanta is not a better team.
This loss will be a spot in the rear view mirror in a few weeks.

ATL will get exposed soon enough. I don't think there as good as their record indicates either & i thought this before our beat down sunday. They've struggled in the last few weeks to put away teams so i'm fully expecting that they'll get exposed eventually.....Plus, they play in the rugged NFC.

could care less about our power ranking though.

The team that everyone thinks is the best team has less of a chance of winning the Super Bowl than any other team. I'd rather drop to around 4 or 5.

The only ranking that matters is the one at the end of the season...some might say that there's more pressure on the number 1 ranked team which affects some teams and not others....it depends really. Either way I don't really care...just take it one game at a time

I'm not sure I'd put the Texas at 2. If I was voting the Texans would be, at the highest, 4. But it doesn't really matter anyway where they are in these sorts of things. All that matters is the score at the end of a playoff game.

They are treating our loss to Green Bay as an abberration and will continue to do so until we prove otherwise. Hopefully that doesn't happen this week. A lot of talking heads have put a lot of time into praising the Texans. Nobody wants to look like they were fooled (again) but make no mistake about it. If we fall flat on our faces and get destroyed by Baltimore the exodus will begin.

This brings up a good point. Teams can change as often as weekly so the power ratings don't mean **** anyway except to those who live for the ratings, make the ratings, and sell commercial time and web space to display the ratings. LOL

I will remain firm that we should to be no less than #2 (I think we're #1 despite Atlanta)... Sunday night was deflating but Schaub was due to lose one. I'm fine with it.

What ONE week can make such a difference. SI presents some disturbing stats.
Quote:
[Y.A.] Tittle's numbers are amazing even a half century later. He tore up the Redskins back in an era when defenders could prison shank wide receivers.

And he ruined Washington's season in the process. The Redskins were 4-0-2 entering that game against the Giants. They ended the year 5-7-2.

One can only wonder if Rodgers' effort will have the same effect on the Texans. Like the 1962 Redskins, they were undefeated at the time of their meltdown. Houston, 5-0 entering the game, went from dominant to helpless in the face of the Packers offensive onslaught.

In fact, given the quality of the defenses each QB faced, Rodgers' effort may be the best of the bunch in the 300-6-0 club.

He statistically skewered the stout defense for a previously undefeated team and cooked it over an open fire of red-hot passing excellence.

The Texans are a shadow of their statistical self today, in the wake of that one game.

Here's where Houston ranked in key defensive indicators before facing Rodgers and the Packers -- and here's where they rank today, licking their statistical and physical wounds in the process.

Before Green Bay After Green Bay
Defensive Passing YPA 3rd (5.15) 9th (5.72)
Defensive Real QB Rating 2nd (55.7) 7th (70.0)
Defensive Passer Rating 2nd (65.3) 14th (80.3)
Passer Rating Differential 2nd (+33.9) 11th (+8.2)
Negative Pass Play % 3rd (12.5%) 5th (11.2%)
Third-Down Defense 1st (25.8%) 2nd (27.6)
Pass defense 4th (189.6 YPG) 7th (213.2 YPG)
Total defense 3rd (275.6 YPG) 6th (300.8 PPG)
Scoring defense 4th (14.6 PPG) 8th (19.2 PPG)


Houston dropped an incredible 12 spots in the space of this one game in Defensive Passer Rating.

It's a huge and sobering note for the Texans. Teams rarely compete for championships with a DPR outside the top 10 league-wide. And only five teams in history have won a championship with a DPR worse than 80.0.

The Texans defense looked extraordinary Sunday morning. It looks merely ordinary today.

Conversely, the Packers offense suddenly looks back in 2011 form. Rodgers & Co. topped the NFL last year in almost all of the indicators we use to measure passing efficiency at Cold, Hard Football Facts.

This year was a different story.

The Packers were 11th in Real Quarterback Rating (85.3) and 6th in Offensive Passer Rating (99.3) when they stepped onto the field in Houston Sunday night.

They are No. 4 (93.4) in Real Quarterback Rating and No. 1 (107.3) in Offensive Passer Rating today.

Agree. I'm surprised that we are ranked that high after the Packers game.

I think the Texans are a top 10 team. Not hating, it's just I'd like to see us play against some of the other NFC teams. Like the Seahawks, Falcons, and Giants.

I was hoping they would be MUCH lower, anger inducing low, so low that the media could do nothing but slap them around and anger them more.

I want to see that anger taken out on the Ravens, power ratings mean nothing, especially after the embarrassment that was GB.

The AP NFL power rankings had the Texans falling to fourth.

Falcons
Giants
Ravens (IIRC)
Texans
Niners

*EDIT*
But who gives a shiyte?

3. Houston Texans (5-1)
Last week: 2
So they got clobbered on Sunday night against the Packers ‒ what's the takeaway? That Aaron Rodgers might still be a really good quarterback, and that the Texans are not a perfect football team? Neither of these items need be accompanied by a "Breaking News" graphic. They hacked up a furball against a desperate team that played their best football of the season. It happens.

4. Baltimore Ravens (5-1)
Last week: 7
I feel like there should've been a massive gap after the third team ‒ Falcons first, Giants second, Texans third, and then a whole lot of bank space and we'll resume around 10 or so. The Ravens probably didn't deserve to win this week (not my words, they're Joe Flacco's), but that's how the NFL carousel rotates. It just happened to be the Ravens this week who were the recipient of the Cowboys' weekly gift of football ineptitude.

Default Re: Now Number 2 in the Power Ratings

The funny thing is that you can isolate about 4 plays in this game that made it a blow out. Barwin had Rogers in his grasp twice. If he gets them down its a different ballgame. The offsides on punt, the field goal. Eliminate those plays and this is a different game. I've seen nothing to make me believe that this wasn't just a team that was reading their press clipings and got cocky. Welcome to the real world where even the best team in the league has to be focused and bring their A game or any given sunday happens.
