    Here's the FoxSports edition...
    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/powerRankings

    They have us at 25. Considering we've only won once, that's really kind of generous. since they have us just under the Browns and above the two-win Niners.

    And apparently they don't listen to Kubiak. No. Nope. No QB controversy here. Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along.

    The question is, with 7 of our final 11 games vs. teams ranked in the bottom 12 of the league (per this list anyway), and 2 of our 3 remaining divisional games at home, will we take advantage of that, or will we prove that the #25 ranking (which I don't disagree with given the five games so far) is truly the neighborhood we belong in. Yeah, we're 1-4, but things could still turn out pretty good, or pretty bad. Here's hoping it's the first thing!

    I hate the Titans too, but undefeated is what it is. They haven't played nothing but cupcakes either, they've had a few difficult teams sprinkled in there schedule so far (Jags, Vikings, both games I thought the Tits would lose) unlike some other teams *coughGIANTScough*.

    Let em have their glory, they field a mean defense this year (unfortunately).

    You're confusing me..you say they haven't played anybody but "cupcakes" (that would include the Texans too since they've played) but then you say they've had a few difficult games. So which is it? I'm not following what you're saying....

    I do think probably nobody anywhere figured the Titans would be "THE" team to beat right now in the NFL. I know I never did. :bat:

    "Cupcake"

    That's a good nickname for our DC.

    I agree. We know from brutal experience the Titans been winning with stingy defense and a good running game for the past two years. And now that the running game has added Chris Johnson its better than good.

    And "Slash"...??
    Don't you have to have multiple talents to earn the nickname "Slash"?
    Let's seeee...

    Running ability - pass
    Catching ability - fail
    Passing ability - fail

    how about "Crash"?
    or maybe "Flash" as in flash in the pan?
    :D

    been saying it all year. Now that the worst qb to ever play in the NFL is benched the Titans are hands down the best team in the league. Sorry....I hate to say it....but who can beat em? Name a team.

    How about this?

    There are NO teams in the current NFL that cannot be beaten.

    By that analogy I would say the Titans could be beaten any week. Maybe when they don't expect to be beaten they will be.

    You seem to be implying NOBODY can beat them. That I don't believe. Can't go there.

    Maybe a better way to say it is: assuming they're on their game, who would you pick to beat them straight up? No flukey wins or Sage-esque performances by Kerry Collins that blow games.

    I've always felt that footballoutsiders.com has a good set of power rankings. They're a lot more stats oriented and have tried to make an "it" factor into their power rankings.

    yeah..that's what i mean...certainly don't expect them to go undefeated...maybe i should say who is a better team right now? I certainly can't think of one.
