    Unfortunately, my somewhat jaded comments on 11/24/15

    (...90+ percent of the time, "power rankings" are merely a lazy print out
    of team records (an 11-1 team being the "#1" ranked team, and a 0-12 team at #32)
    with just a tiny bit of variance...the occasional 5-7 team might be 2 slots in front of a 6-6 team... :whistling:
    In short: Great concept. But in reality: Rarely little more than the teams' known records)


    about how excruciatingly lazy these things tend to be, is born out once again...
    not a single thing about the top dozen teams suggests a hint of thoughtful insight whatsoever:
    Not even one tiny deviance beyond just listing records...
    if you really are only "what your record says you are" then "Power Rankings" are 100% pointless...

    1. Carolina Panthers (11-0)
    2. New England Patriots (10-1)
    3. Cincinnati Bengals (9-2)
    4. Arizona Cardinals (9-2)
    5. Denver Broncos (9-2)
    6. Minnesota Vikings (8-3)
    7. Green Bay Packers (7-4)
    8. Kansas City Chiefs (6-5)
    9. Seattle Seahawks (6-5)
    10. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5)
    11. New York Jets (6-5)
    12. Indianapolis Colts (6-5)

    Ravens beat us so we should be at #30. Maybe #31.
