Default ESPN power rankings....kinda funny

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/powerranking

yeah were ranked last but the funny thing is they have us at 0-3. No wonder we are ranked so low, they have us losing during our bye week.

What happens if we have an offensive explosion against the Bengals? (Is that even possible with the Capers/Pendry combo?) Does that mean that Pendy is the second coming of Bill Walsh?

It means we hope Buchanon doesn't get burned on every play so we don't lose anyway.

They have us ranked that high? I would have skipped 32 and ranked us as 60.

The only thing that got hurt during the bye week was Pbuc's ego.

Yeah, its like you know, the QB that was 9th in yards last year (David Carr), the wide reciver who went to the Pro Bowl (AJ), the running back who had almost the same amount of yards from scrimage as LaDanian Tomlison (DD) or the rookie corner that should have made the pro bowl. But, no, your right, the players suddenly lost all of their talent. Definatley!

I think Carr also led league last yearin getting sacked and is on a record pace this year...Maybe it's the caliber of the O-line?? at least in pass protection

Quote from Fox Sports Power Rankings:

"Cincinnati has just one statistical weakness so far: they've only sacked the quarterback twice. Of course, this week the Bengals host the 0-2 Houston Texans, who have a Flat Earth Society relationship with the concept of the offensive line. So that may not be an issue in a few days."

The source is Fox and they probably have not watched one Texan or Bengal game. As far as statistical weakness is concerned, the Bengals rush defense is giving up 4.6 yards per carry.

Actually the source is Football Outsiders and not Fox. Fox switched to their rankings this week. They use a more rigid system to evaluate the teams. They include last season as part of the calculations for the first part of the season which is why we are 31st instead of 32nd. This hurts to hear though:

Bengals: The best team in the NFL through three games. Really. See extended commentary below. NEXT: vs. HOU Houston? Man, you have got to be kidding me. Fox Power Rankings

Appreciate the insight. I still do not take any credence in national media when it comes to Football prognostication.
