I'm over here to talk football. I love football in general, not just Bronco football. This was no attempt to pat myself on the back or anything. I figured I would talk with some people that don't hold my same point of view about the most wonderful sport in the world.

honestly, I think the Jets and Packers are rated too high. Granted, Jets haven't lost yet, but they played horribly against San Fransico. Packers and Titans are only that high because of their past. if they were Cincy and played the way they've been playing, they'd be in the low twenties.

Ignore these dolts, they just hate seeing the Broncos rated so high week after week.

I just thought I'd get the thread started. If your goal is to pizz me off, you might find you'll have a hard time doing it.

the way you worded that was a little strange. Are you saying I should go to other clubs' forums or another forum on this site?

If you go back and look at it - you aren't the only one in this thread... SDRaiderh8er's response was in response to User EMCFitch - who has been playing "Troll/Spammer" for a spell here and doesn't seem to take "gentle reminders" via PM seriously at all...

OBTW - good choice of user names - that Big RB sure looked good pouring through what the Raiduhs refer to as "advanced technique arm tackles"... i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

The only rankings that count is who wins the Superbowl, anything less is unworthy of an ranking, just ego boosters

True, but this is trying to predict who has the best chance of winning the super bowl. Granted, they're rarely right, but it's still fun to talk about.

I personally prefer the unbiased statistical computer rankings of Jeff Sagarin due to the fact his rankings take into account strength of schedule, home team advantage, etc.

USA Today / Sagarin NFL (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/nfl04.htm)

In his rankings the Broncos are 6th and the Chargers are 9th. I like that.

Personally - I have found the Troy Aikman Efficiency Ratings to be the best measure of performance available this year. Have a look at his take on Week 6 (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/7812004).... Looks about right to me..

I'm just a little confused how the chargers can be 28th in yardage, but 4th in his system. I haven't seen a ton of their games though, have they just been stopping the other team in the red zone?

chargers offense is very good, if you didnt notice thats why they are in 4th

I think its stupid that the broncos and falcons BARELY beat us at their home stadiums and yet they are ranked 6th and 9th and we are all the way down at 19

I dont understand how houston is higher then us(15) when we beat them in their own stadium, or how about the titans who we murdered are at 17. Or how about when we beat the living cr@p out of the Jags, but hey they are still better and we jsut got lucky because they are #12

GB ahead of us? They are pathetic!
Same with the cowboys!


This is the stupidest list i have seen yet!

RIP i will agree with you, again. i posted how idiots make this ranking. I wouldn't be surprised if San fransico was ranked higher than Chargers.

Pre-season hype is one of the main things wrong with these systems. Teams that were supposed to do well are often put ahead of teams that weren't, no matter what happens on the field. Also, great offenses seem to always be put ahead of great defenses because they have more glory.

We are the highest scoring team in football, and beat the cr@p out of the Jags, and yet they are 7 spots above us, Who ever made that list is a complete moron!
