Week 7 NFL Power Rankings

Here are the Main Stream Media(MSM) Power Rankings around the web this week.  Below that you can find MHR's own Power Rankings for Week 7.  Feel free to discuss and even post your own rankings for this week.

Yahoo! Sports -- Ranked 10th, Last Week 8th

Sporting News -- Ranked 8th, Last Week 9th

ESPN -- Ranked 12th, Last Week 7th

Fox Sports -- Ranked (Lazy bastards, screw 'em!)th, Last Week 7th

CBS Sportsline -- Ranked 12th, Last Week 7th

Covers.com -- Ranked 11th, Last Week 8th

Sports Illustrated, Dr. Z -- Ranked 14th, Last Week 8th

Bill Williamson has proven he is a Charger fan.  The dude just can't help but rank them ahead of the Broncos after every Charger win and Bronco loss.  Dr. Z has also proven he is completely without credibility.  He moves the Chargers from 23rd to 8th in one week.  That just seems totally absurd to me.  The Broncos, predictably, plummeted in the power rankings around the web.  They were consistently the second lowest ranked four win team in the league, with several 3 win teams ranked ahead of them.  Rodney Dangerfield is coming back from the grave saying, "No respect I tell ya, no respect!"

Last week, the Broncos average rank was a deflated 7.7, but a man handling by the Jaguars made the critics come back out in droves.  As a result, our average rank dropped to 11.2. Now it's time to review the rankings of MileHighReport.com.

NOTE: I made a slight change in the MHR ranking system again this week.  I will keep a running tally of points of the entire year starting from two weeks ago.  That way, rankings will not swing wildly from week to week based on emotional response.  It should make for a more reasonable gain or loss in rankings.  No more 12 point jumps or plummets after just a single game.  In the points field, you will see the total points for the year with this week's totals in parenthesis directly below that.  After three more weeks, I will also start removing the high/lows from the season totals in the final tally to increase the accuracy even more. 

I also added a trend field.  This graphic indicates whether the team improved over the course of the last two weeks.  For this week, teams may have moved up in the overall rankings even though they went down the trends and vise verse.  This will correct itself by next week, so I apologize for the confusion there.  The good news is -- This should be the final tweak for the year.  Enjoy!

I was going to laugh at them for losing to the Rams, but then I though of the Chiefs!  I think this team bounces back after losing this trap game.  ~Zappa

Suddenly, the defense looks like our strength and the offense is a liability.  I don't expect that to last, but the trends are disturbing.  ~Zappa

The stock market and a Raven each jump off a cliff at the same time, which hits the bottom first?  The Raven because the stock market has the Plunge Protection Team to save it while the Raven has nothing but gravity and two broken wings.  ~Zappa(I know...bad joke, but I couldn't help it...this team is going down hard)

Mdierk says, "Huge collapse."  I think it's more like "Right where we thought they should be."  lol  Either way, this team sucks!

A lot of people are going to be sleeping on this team for the next few weeks.  I may pick them this week as they have the talent and now have a coach who can coach! ~Zappa

Their only saving grace is that they have had a BYE week already and therefore do not have the worst record in the NFL.  ~Zappa
