Default Post week 1 power rankings:

http://fanrankings.nfl.com/

The "experts" put us at 22 and the "community fan rankings" put us at 31. Ouch on the latter, we kinda earned the former!

As everyone knows, rankings dont mean anything this early in the season. Hopefully though, if any of our players see it then the rankings might light a fire under their asses. Anything that could do that would be good imo.

Default Re: Post week 1 power rankings:

I saw alot of football last week in week 1.....no team looked as bad as ours that I saw...NONE....every other team AT LEAST looked competitive. I know the rankings don't mean squat right now and I know we're not the worst team in the league, however, based only on what I saw for one specific week, we were definitely in the 30's in ranking. IMO

I'm finally starting to simmer down after Sunday's worst, so I'm starting to try and think positively again. But man, for a solid 48 hours was I pissed!

Should have been 32 out of 32, IMO. No team performed worse. Even the Panthers, Raiders, Bills, and Lions played better as a team.

You know, normally i'd be against obvious sky is falling talk like "we are the worst team in the NFL". But I am all for it because I hope it somehow gets to the players and they decide to prove us wrong. No more talking about being a winner, its time for this team to show us that they are winners before we go around talking about how we're gonna be a playoff team.

That fan voting is obviously a bunch of fans voting for their own teams. I mean c'mon, the Cowboys are ranked higher than the Steelers? Sure, the Cowboys have more fans nationwide than do the Steelers. The Chargers ahead of the Giants? The Titans number 23?

I actually think we were the 30th worst team in the league last Sunday. Panthers were worst, Rams 2nd worst, and then our Texans.

Teams like the Chiefs, Raiders, and Bills all played better than our Texans with each team having a chance to win their game. The Broncos and 49ers both looked to have a rough year and both win their games. Why did we have to stink it up so bad while other teams overcome adversity?

I think it starts up top. We lack inspiration and passion. Kubiak just doesn't have it in his DNA to be a top NFL head coach. he is too awwshucks and good ole boy. You don't have to yell but you have to realize that you have to get a team fired up and prepared to play from the opening kick. His teams come out flat week after week. The defense plays with no real purpose or attitude. They just play soft and Kubiak coaches soft. 3+ years have shown that to be a constant.

These teams were worse than us last week:
Detroit - 3INTs on offense, 6 TDs through the air on defense
Panthers - 5 turnovers by the QB is awful
Maybe the rams

I don't think that the low twenties is too far off. You've got potential, the problem is that you don't get any respect until you start showing, especially with your history. If you lose this week, you'll be in a big hole, but maybe that would be enough to get you moving. Don't you have two home games after this week? A little momentum to get you back even would be good. I don't think you can make it up if you start 1-3.

That being said, those community rankings are just silly. I don't think anyone would take them seriously. Also, despite a downright bad performance last week, and the fact that I'm a rival fan and don't like you guys, I'd still put you above 25.

I dunno, from what I saw of the Raiders against SD, Buf against NE, Tenn against Pitt, and a few others we looked worse than them. Did you see how stout Oakland actually looked in that game?

That doesn't mean that those teams are better than us, but they played better than us, so, until I see otherwise (and it can start Sunday against the possum hollar tacks) I can't say we are better than those teams.

Thanks for the rational view.

I'm happy to agree that you're better than you looked last week, but you've got to prove it.
