Hey guys - check this out. Your destruction of St. Louis knocked them out of the top spot and you took their place.

1. Chiefs
2. Raiders
3. Jets

There's gonna be a helluva showdown in Oaktown in a cupla weeks. Both our teams are getting lots of ink lately - its the show to watch. Watch for the media hype level to go ballistic after we both win on Sunday...

UD - what's this index based on. Seems awfully bizarre for a 4-3 team to be ahead of the anyone in the top 5.

What the hell is the Dunkel Index?

Sounds kinda like a German S&M equipment rating service.

I found it kind of interesting that Sagarin ratings have the Chiefs above the Rams, with the Chiefs being in 10th place.

Here is the link to it.

I snipped this expalnation for you:

"The Dunkel Index is a progressive statistical formula that has historically proven to be an accurate measurement when applied to the performance of an organized group of athletes versus another organized group of athletes. It is the one of the few known formulas to incorporate the strength of one teamís schedule against anotherís. The Index basically reflects all the intangibles that can affect the performance of any team, on any given day, regardless of the circumstances.

The keys to the Dunkel Index are found in knowing that it is a "statistical" formula with an emphasis on a teamís recent performance. Most mathematicians and statisticians will support the fact that the larger a "sampling" is, the more accurate the projections that are derived from that "sampling" are. The Index is now enjoying an almost 70 year history in College Football and a 62 year history in Menís College Basketball. And, just for the record, The Dunkel College Football Index enjoyed an 86.9 percent raw accuracy record for the 1997-98 Bowl Season."<P>

If it says the Chiefs are #1, then I know it's accurate!

Luz
of course we're #1...

Ryan Early's 'scientific poll' also has us ranked #1...

How embarrassing to be scientifically #1, but can seem to get the job done on the field.

NFLtalk's powerrankings has the Chiefs ranked #10. They also quote,"The Chiefs will probably win at Seattle, but will drop three or four in the row afterwards."

NFLtalk probably picked the Chiefs to beat St.Louis... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/wink.gif
