    dont take alot of trust into power rankings...i say texans should be number one..they barely squeaking wins agaisnt sub par teams like the raiders...come payoff time they are going to be exposed to the packers just like we were..

    Until they actually lose though they pretty much deserve the top spot no matter how "crappy" their wins were. If you didn't account wins and losses in your power rankings then the Giants and the Pats would probably still be on top which is silly.

    At a minimum, the Giants and the Packers should be above the Texans.

    But losses to #10, #5, and to a team not even in the top 10.

    That's just the nature of the beast. When you're talking about a game where Team A might not match up against Team B but be able to beat more teams than Team B can OR where a lucky call or a random bounce can determine the winner, there is no such thing as a "best" team and no such thing as a "strongest" team.

    The Packers just lost Woodson. Would they be able to demolish us without him? Would the Packers be able to demolish us 5 games in a row? Maybe. Maybe not. It's all just an opinion.

    I love having us ranked high because it means we're getting some respect but I'd prefer us to be ranked a little lower so we could still play the underdog/we-don't-get-no-respect card.
