If you have no wins, you should be at the bottom on principle.

Like Vinny said, power rankings mean nothing, basically just opinions. We don't deserve anything than the last spot anyway, period.

There are a few teams that we might be able to beat (Cleavland, Baltimore, Arizona and the 49er's) but none that you can say we are "better" than at this point.

The Texans are a tragic example of what happens to any organization whose leadership makes bad decisions, then lives in denial and has not stepped up to what must be done. Step one is in fact admitting that we are the worst in the NFL right now... but step two is to decide what we are going to do about it...to go another single week with Capers and Casserly is to continue to live in denial and makes the situation worse.

If McNair does not pull the plug on these guys soon, his is going to lose the considerable capital of goodwill and trust he alone still has within the fan base.

When you are the only winless team in the NFL, the only stat that matters is scoreboard.

We are dead last in the NFL, make no mistake about it. And it will remain that way until we finally find a way to win a game.

Well, let me make an announcement to the fans that haven't digested this yet....We are the worst team in football...and we don't need some Yankee or some Hollywood scribe to tell us.

Yes, the only thing I have seen this year is confusion. So we fire our offensive coordinator and promote the Offensive line coach? We need to get back to our Oiler roots. Where is Bum Phillips? Redskins brought back Gibbs, and Parcells is definitely Old School.

I still find it suprising that they rank the Broncos as the #12th team. Even though they lost to the Dolphins in week one. They have beaten the Cheifs, Chargers and Patriots. But yet they are still rank behind the 2 and 3 Dolphins. And the Bengals are rank 2nd while thier all thier wins have come against teams with a record of 5-13. That's a load of crap if I ever saw it.

The Bengals can only play the teams on the schedule.

I can understand that, but to rank them higher then the Broncos, when they have played a much tougher schedule thus far is not right. I think last week or the week before they ranked the Broncos 16th.

THIS RANKING SAYS WE ARE THE WORSE.....

Any ranking that puts us anywhere but dead last after what I saw sunday night should not even be taken seriously.
