Default Dr. Z's Power Rankings

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...x.html?eref=T1

Not sure if this has been posted yet, if so I apologize. He's got the Texans at 23 behind both Cincinnatti and Detroit. Really Dr. Z???? Also the Tacks at 12. In my best Ozzie Guillen, Pffft Please!

Default Re: Dr. Z's Power Rankings

Does this so-called Dr. actually have the Vikings at #4? McKinnie is suspended for the first four games, and I'll be surprised if All Day stays healthy All Year.

My Texans at #23 is absurd. If nothing, we have better offensive play than many of the other teams ranked above us on his "list." The Jets at #14?!? Really Dr. D(umbass)? So let's get this right - a 4-12 team with many new additions is better going into the season than an 8-8 team with very few. I call bull$%&! on this one

Default Re: Dr. Z's Power Rankings

I don't care where they have us rated NOW. Now, if at the end of the year we are in the top 8... well that's a different story. Is a team that has never had a winning season and hasn't been able to stay healthy deserve to be in the 20s when we have a tough schedule and are in the best division in football? Maybe. Tacks at 12? No. I hope that these things are posted in the locker room to give the team some fire.

I don't think Dr. Z has accurately predicted anything in the last 15 years, so take his rankings with a grain of salt.

Disagree....his week 17 rankings are usually pretty close to spot on.

Default Re: Dr. Z's Power Rankings

google pre-season rankings and you'll probably find one you like somewhere. 23 is the lowest I've seen us in the 2008 pre-season ranking pile, and 15 was the highest.

Eh, he doesn't think much of us every year and we haven't done much to persuade him otherwise.... every year. Gotta win to get respect, so on and so forth, blah blah blah. On a side note, it is funny to see ESPiN's talking heads touting the Panthers as a legit contender year after year only to see them suck it up.

I think I just got the redass seeing some of the teams he ranked ahead of the texans. It could just the homer in me but I think the texans are far superior to cincinnatti and detroit.

Very interesting where he has the Eagles. #7. I don't see being as good as alot of people are predicting. I don't see a whole lot of consistency with that team.

I really hope we aren't in the Ravens, Dolphins, Lions category this year.

The drivers older than me are all senile, blind people who drive 20 and run over people on the sidewalk, and those younger than me are all crazy kids probably drunk or high who all drive like maniacs.

those to my policial left are all communist pinkos, and those to my right are abortion clinic bombers.

It may be an anology but that's what I always think when I read these kinds of threads.

Unless the pundit is Adam Schefter, in which case, screw him even if he does think we're improved.

Any NFL rankings such as this so-called Dr. Z's Power Rankings amount to Jack Squat. They do not determine who will play for the Super Bowl unlike a certain college sport.
