View Full Version : NFL Scoop Power Rankings (Now this is more like it)...

10-04-2000, 10:14 AM
If you were like me, you probably took a shot to the groin in the office pool this week. Hey, who would have thought that Pittsburgh would have upset Jacksonville or that Carolina goes south whenever I “choose” them? Those games don’t matter. What does you ask? Three things. 1.) The Rams should receive an automatic bid to Tampa. 2.) Elvis Grbac grew a beard and found some moxie. In his fourth year, Grbac is finally starting to play like the Chiefs QB that was defined by Lenny Dawson and rewritten by Joe Montana. 3.) The ‘Skins are starting to play better...and I thought Deion saying he felt like a pregnant woman was weird. Turn up your screen savers, sharpen your pencils and get ready for NFLScoop’s power rankings as we rank all the NFL teams 1-30 and then the Cincinnati Bengals.

1. St. Louis Rams (5-0): What I can say that will change your mind? 57 points? The next 8 days off? Case closed on this one. (No Change From Last Week)

2. New York Jets (4-0): The Green Lantern has arrived, complete with T-shirt, ring and special powers. Or was that just New York Jets flashlight-receiver Wayne Chrebet playing the part of superhero? (No Change From Last Week)

3. Indianapolis Colts (3-1): After throwing for 440 yards against the Jags, common logic called for Peyton Manning to have an off game. He did, but he stepped up when he needed to late in the game. The scary thing: Peyton is getting better. (No Change From Last Week)

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible whole lot more as they get older, then it dawned on me, they
were cramming for their finals.

4. Minnesota Vikings (4-0): The Vikings traveled to the Pontiac Silverdome where Randy Moss punked the entire Detroit secondary for three touchdowns and he punked good ol’ Merrill ‘concussion’ Hoge and his pre-game comments. (Up From Number 5 Last Week)

5. Tennessee Titans (3-1): It only took the Titans five weeks and four games to rid themselves of their Super Bowl hangover. The Giants brought their own weather system with them to Memphis, but the Titans displayed their own high pressure system (Up From Number 7 Last Week)

6. Baltimore Ravens (3-1): The Ravens pitched their second consecutive shutout in a row against a team from Ohio. With a huge re-match against the Jags this weekend down in J-Ville, the Ravens have a chance to prove they are for real. (Up From Number 8 Last Week) <P>

10-04-2000, 10:14 AM
7. Buffalo Bills (2-1): It was a game Buffalo should have won, but they didn’t. After Rob Johnson found a wide-open Eric Moulds streaking down the field for a go-ahead 40-yard TD, except they encountered one problem: Peyton Manning with time on the clock. (Down 1 From Last Week)

8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-2): Suddenly things look convoluted for the Bucs. The offense has hit a speed bump and returned to Earth. Keyshawn isn’t happy (is he ever?) and the Bucs’ are starting to feel an identity crisis. (Down From Number 3 Last Week)

9. Kansas City Chiefs (3-2): Air Gunther & the Bearded Elvis have turned around a team that questioned themselves just two weeks into the season. With an AFC leading 12 touchdown passes, Grbac looks to be the QB that Chiefs President/General Manager/Talent Scout/Capologist Carl Peterson thought he would be…just two years late. The Chiefs are off this week as they rest up for a HUGE divisional showdown with Oakland in week seven. (Up From Number 10 Last Week)

10. Oakland Raiders (3-1): Now that Janikowski is kicking again, the Raiders have chance at winning a close game---as long as the field goal is under 30 yards. The Raiders have the ‘Battle of the Bay’ this weekend and then a huge Week 7 battle for first place with the Chiefs. (Down From Number 9 Last Week) <P>

We were stagnant in the 12th position on the ESPN.com ranking and moved slightly to 11th in the Sagarin ratings (which is more objective.)

Actually, I just wanted to see the Chiefs rated higher than the Raiders. I trust this as being a bit more accurate if that is the case... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

The Massey ratings also have us at #9 and the Raiduh's at #10. I'd say somewhere between #9 and #12 seems to be the consensus on KC.

Furtunately you will have 2 weeks to brag about your team. After the the BYE it will be a different season.

10-04-2000, 10:53 AM
Yeah, bishop! Stop bragging on your team. It's unnatural & despicable. I'm so tired of hearing fans brag about their favorite team!!! Whoda thunk fans would stoop to that level.

It's only inappropriate because the BB is called "ChiefsPlanet," Phil. Apparently, team fans are supposed to spend their lives visiting the BB of teams other than their favorite.

Bishop - It sounds like Broncofan is hoping to pull the, you may have been lucky against us, but the fact that we beat the Raiders and you lost to them shows that we are at least equal to better then the Chiefs. Blah blah blah.

10-04-2000, 11:01 AM
Morph, that's cool, but it really sounds more like BLAH BLAH BLAH with a bunch of hot air. I guess thats what people sound like with no FACT to back up the SMACK.

10-04-2000, 11:03 AM
Bishop - Well we should pitty him, I mean it isn't exactly easy to talk smack to a team that you haven't won against in a couple of years.
