Default A different approach to power ranking

An interesting article by Pete Prisco.

Quote:
Rate the quarterback.
• Rate the guys who knock the quarterback down.
• Rate the players who knock down the quarterback's passes.
• Rate the men who keep the quarterback upright
He has us ranked 12th overall and all but CB ranks well.


Quote:
Now if they sign a corner in free agency, it would help. The same goes for the Houston Texans. They have good ratings, except at corner. What if they signed Asomugha? He would be the top-ranked corner and would move them to second in the overall rankings
pleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease sign Aso.

Now, if we use that formula and replace GQ with Nmandi our score for cornerback would go from 3 to 31 or 32, which would increase our overall score from 97 to 126. That would be good for third on that list, trailing only the Pack and Iggles.

One player can make a huge difference.

I want 23 wins.

Preseason may not count, but while we're dreaming of Texans Utopia we might as well go for everything.
