    2011 NFL Power Rankings: Week 15 - Top 10
    Follow @walterfootball for updates.
    1. Green Bay Packers (13-0) - Previously: #1 - The Packers are going 19-0, and the blond chick in the State Farm Discount Double-Check commercial is really hot. That is all.

    2. Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3) - Previously: #3 - The Steelers move ahead of the Patriots because New England might have the worst pass defense of all time. Then again, if Colt McCoy hadn't suffered that concussion, the Browns may have beaten Pittsburgh. There's just no clear-cut No. 2 right now.

      Speaking of McCoy, why was he allowed to reenter the game? I sat down with head coach Pat Shurmur for an interview to find out what happened:

      Me: Hey Pat, thanks for taking the time to talk to me.

      Pat Shurmur: No problem, Walt.

      Me: Let's not beat around the bush. Why was Colt McCoy allowed to reenter the game with a concussion?

      Pat Shurmur: I felt like Colt was being a chicken wuss. I told him to man up.

      Me: But that's dangerous. He could have suffered long-term brain damage if he got hit like that again.

      Pat Shurmur: This is football, Walt. It's football. There's no room for chicken wusses.

      Me: Well, I guess we'll have to agree to dis... ouch, f***, I just sliced my arm on the chair. It's gushing blood. Call 911!

      Pat Shurmur: Man up, Walt. Man up. You're being a chicken wuss.

      Me: Ah man, I'm getting light-headed. I really need to go to the hospital.

      Pat Shurmur: This is a football interview, Walt. It's a football interview. Stop being a chicken wuss, and man up!

      Me: Ohhhh maaann, I'm... I can't stand, and... ouch! I just hit my head on the floor. I... uhh... wait... who are you? What am I doing here?

      Pat Shurmur: Not another chicken wuss with a concussion! Man the f*** up!

      Me: I am Bat Man.

      Pat Shurmur: That's the spirit. Man the f*** up, stop being a chicken wuss and finish the f***ing interview!

    3. New England Patriots (10-3) - Previously: #2 - How did Bill Belichick allow his defense to get so bad against the pass? Was it laziness? Misevaluation of talent? Facebook friend Steven L. has a theory after hearing a quote from a CBS announcer:

      "Julian Edelman is another one of these Belichick guys who goes both ways."

      Not that there's anything wrong with that...

      There's your answer. Belichick spends too much time in those seedy bath houses with guys who go both ways.

    4. New Orleans Saints (10-3) - Previously: #4 - Saints fans, be prepared for your team to draft Landry Jones or Ryan Tannehill in the 2012 NFL Draft. Think that's stupid? Well, think again:

      Hey, if it's said on GameCenter, it must be true.

    5. Baltimore Ravens (10-3) - Previously: #5 - No one should be surprised that the Colts scored a painful backdoor cover on the final play of the game. predicted the game would be close:

      I can't say I'm surprised anymore. There's no such thing as a "big edge" on Like if the Packers battled my local high school team, I'm convinced they'd only be a "slight edge" on

      If Ravens over Colts is a slight edge, then the following graphic may apply:

      Fifty hamburgers versus a bug. Slight edge!

    6. San Francisco 49ers (10-3) - Previously: #6 - GameCenter poster Migelini, the dumbest person of all time, often calls Marshawn Lynch "marchel." And instead of saying that Lynch plays the running back position, Migelini insists that Marchel is the "runny guy."

      Perhaps Aldon Smith should be the runny guy. Check out what Smith does after every sack now (thanks to VBSiena for this):

      Funny. I must have looked like that Sunday night when I ran to the bathroom after eating a few hot dogs.

    7. Denver Broncos (8-5) - Previously: #7 - News broke Monday that the Broncos started Tim Tebow just to appease the fans with a plan of moving on with a new quarterback after Tebow failed.

      Hey, there's a reason I called the guys John Kreese Elway and Johnny Lawrence Fox. Tim Tebow san defeated Fox and Elway in the All-Valley Karate Tournament, so now they have to pretend like they've loved him all along. Don't be fooled. Elway is meeting with the owner of the Cobra Kai dojo as you're reading this.

    8. New York Giants (7-6) - Previously: #8 - You want to see the worst fantasy football luck ever? This occurred a couple of weeks ago, and Facebook friend Jonathan C. sent over a picture of this tragedy:

      If you're not following, the guy had the fantasy matchup won prior to the Giants' Monday night game at New Orleans, but lost because New York's defense put up negative points. I'm actually shocked this fantasy owner didn't slit his wrists.

    9. Houston Texans (10-3) - Previously: #10 - I was thrilled to watch T.J. Yates defeat the Bengals in the final seconds because I had three units on Houston. Matvei, who runs the Sharps Picks section was also sweating it out. He sent me this text after the touchdown:

      That Texans cover just took five years off my life. This Las Vegas Hilton Supercontest fee should come with a year's supply of codeine.

    10. Detroit Lions (8-5) - Previously: #12 - I didn't know whom to rank No. 10. It was close between the Lions, Falcons and Jets, but I feel like Detroit has the most potential once it gets everyone back from injury.

      Anyway, let's go to Notes from GameCenter - a list of a few stupid comments I read on's GameCenter and my thoughts on them:

      1. "their schedule outside of their 6 divisional games is on cakewalk."

      I wish I could be on a cakewalk. Sounds tasty NOM NOM NOM NOM.

      2. "e on Cincinnati let's put some points up this game ain't over just yer"

      How did this person misspell "yet" but get "Cincinnati" correct? And what's with the random "e" at the beginning of the sentence? It's like he didn't know where to put it.

      3. "hvyhair is so stuburn and u cant call me stubburn bc my arguments actually make since"

      This guy has been making since on GameCenter sense 2008.

    2011 NFL Power Rankings: Week 14 - Bottom 10

    32. Indianapolis Colts (0-13) - Previously: #32 - Famous GameCenter user Taton is still banned. Without being able to post on GameCenter, Taton has turned to a life of gambling, drugs and drinking. Here are the posts Taton would have made on GameCenter if he were still a member:

    After the Ravens went up 17-0:

    - Dane orkovsky is sux! Cristis Prainter is sux! Karry Collin is sux! Bye bye coch cadwell fire now!!!!!!!

    When the Colts kicked a field goal:

    - i make bett on Colt cover 17 point!!!! Feld goal 3 point!!!!! Keep score in 17 point!!!!!!

    When the Ravens made the score 24-3:

    - No more cover 17 point!!!! Bye bye no more hope for cover!!!! Jim Israe and coach cadwell can shoved penas inside each other moth in lockar room!!!!!

    When the Colts stalled inside the Baltimore 10 in the middle of the fourth quarter:

    - orvkosy orkovsy orkvosy quit imcpmplete before Cach Coadwell shove penas inside butt!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When the Colts covered on the last play:

    - orvkosy compelte in score!!!!! Colt cover 17 pint!!!!!! Taton win lot of money more moeny than Coad Cadlwel will make next yaer!!!!!!!!!!

    31. St. Louis Rams (2-11) - Previously: #31 - Here's a recap of the Seahawks-Rams game:

    1. Feed the Beast! There were hundreds of those signs in the stands, held by fans who were cheering on Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch. He did not disappoint, as he broke his usual tackles with unbelievably tough runs. Lynch gained 115 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries.

    Lynch's score came at the very end. As he stood in the end zone, fans showered him with Skittles. It was so bizarre. The camera then panned to a hot blond chick holding a "Feed the Beast" sign yelling, "Marshawn, I love you!"

    2. The big story going into this game was Sam Bradford's availability. It didn't seem like he would be able to go early in the week, meaning Tom Brandstater would get the nod. But Bradford improved enough over the weekend to start.

    I thought this was a huge mistake. It was evident that Bradford wasn't healthy. He looked gimpy in warmups. Why play him and risk further injury in a meaningless game? You have to wonder if Steve Spagnuolo wouldn't have been more cautious if his job wasn't on the line.

    Bradford was terrible. He went 12-of-29 for 193 yards and one interception, though he could have easily been picked off three more times. He had trouble throwing off his back foot, and his accuracy was obviously affected. Spagnuolo's decision to use Bradford in this contest was completely irresponsible.

    3. Bradford will improve next year by default, but he won't be much better if Josh McDaniels leaves. It's looking like McDaniels may be a head coach somewhere else in 2012. Still though, Bradford will really benefit from getting healthier and practicing more with Brandon Lloyd. Bradford and Lloyd (5-82) looked more comfortable with each other in this contest.

    4. Steven Jackson had a really big game. He rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown on 20 attempts to go along with three receptions for 60 receiving yards. Jackson's big gain was a 50-yard screen that for some reason caught Seattle unawares on a third-and-long.

    Jackson's other highlight was the touchdown; the Rams failed from goal-to-go at the 1-yard line five consecutive times. The coaching staff inexplicably neglected to call a play for Jackson on those five attempts. He yelled angrily at the sideline, and was finally given a carry. He predictably punched it into the end zone.

    5. The Seahawks won by 17, but this could have been a much bigger blowout. I mentioned Bradford's three dropped picks already; also factored in was a fumbled exchange between Tarvaris "Tarvis" Jackson (21-34, 224 yards, TD) and "Marchel" Lynch in the red zone. Kicker Steven Hauschka also missed a chip-shot field goal in the third quarter.

    6. One more thing about Lynch: He attempted two passes in this contest on a pair of trick plays, both of which fell way incomplete. I thought this was the dumbest thing ever. I'll never understand why a team with superior talent would ever use gadget plays like this. You don't need to trick your opponent if you're better than them.

    30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-9) - Previously: #27 - For those who didn't see it, forum member/jerk MDude created a thread on the forum to berate me for picking the Buccaneers to go to the Super Bowl back in August (even though I changed my Super Bowl pick to the Saints). Here's the exchange:

    We tried to save you from looking like a fool before the season started. The Bucs were clearly an inferior team last year that took advantage of a tissue-paper schedule.

    And yet you insisted on making them your NFC Super Bowl representative, claiming that they were a "team on the rise". How's that looking now?


    Maybe I can start a footabll "analysis" website and make outrageous claims every year to placate people like you that clearly value shock factor more than accuracy and intelligence, right?

    My response:

    Not sure why I'm entertaining your childish post (smh at you), but I picked the Saints to go to the Super Bowl right before the season:

    *** In case you couldn't figure it out, I'm the DUMA$$ who picked the Buccaneers to go to the Super Bowl. I've been pretty accurate with my past few Super Bowl predictions, and I was confident with my Tampa projection - until I saw Josh Freeman this preseason. Freeman's decision-making has just been really bad. If this continues, he's going to throw way more than six interceptions this year.

    I'd like to change my Super Bowl pick, if I may. Since this is my Web site, I sure as hell may.

    My new NFC representative in this year's projected Super Bowl is New Orleans. Unlike last year, Drew Brees is healthy. And speaking of health, the Saints usually suffer lots of injuries because Sean Payton runs the team into the ground in practice. He won't be able to do that per the new CBA rules. ***

    But the Bucs did look good when they were 3-1, but then they lost their best defensive player and so... if you told me the Bucs would be without Gerald McCoy for 12 games, I wouldn't have had them in the playoffs.

    Oh, and considering you can't spell "footabll" or "website" correctly, I can't imagine you'll have too many readers, but you're welcome to promote your football Web site in this forum.

    29. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9) - Previously: #30 - Vince G. sent over a very weird quote regarding the Jack Del Rio firing:

    "Reports out of Jacksonville say Del Rio has been lackadaisical the past couple of weeks."

    "Past couple of weeks?" How about past couple of years? Owner Wayne Weaver told the media that he wished Del Rio had a better work ethic following the 2009 season. This was my basis for modeling Del Rio after Fast Times at Ridgemont High character Jeff Spicoli in a fake interview I posted two years ago:

    ME: Hey Jack, thanks for joining me.

    DEL RIO: Wait a minute, there's no birthday party for me here!

    ME: I know. That's the only way I could lure you into doing an interview with me.

    DEL RIO: You dick!

    ME: This will only take five minutes, I swear.

    DEL RIO: You're totally ruining my sun-tanning and surfing time right now, bro.

    ME: Sorry. Jack, can you explain what happened between the Eagles and Colts games? It looked like your team didn't try in the Philly game, but saved all of its energy for Indy. Why did this happen?

    DEL RIO: Dude, there were some totally tubular waves going on last week. There were some good ones this week too, but I hate the Colts because they're dicks.

    ME: Why do you hate the Colts outside of the fact that they're in your division?

    DEL RIO: I was on the beach one time, and some Colts guys kicked some sand in my face when I was sun tanning. It was totally uncool, dude.

    ME: So all you need for someone to motivate you is to kick sand in your face?

    DEL RIO: Yeah, bra. All I need otherwise are some tasty waves, a cool buds, and I'm fine.

    ME: So, what sort of game plan do you have in store for the Bills? What do you need to do to stop C.J. Spiller, assuming he even gets the ball?

    DEL RIO: I know that dude.

    ME: I would hope so. But what are you going to do to stop him?

    DEL RIO: That's way too far into the future, man. I'm goin' back down to the beach to catch some killer waves.

    It's still amazes me that this bum wasn't fired after the 2009 season.

    28. Cleveland Browns (4-9) - Previously: #29 - Jon S. epitomized the state of the Browns best in this brief e-mail he sent to me following the Thursday night loss:

    Thank God for McCoy and his interception. This could have been ugly. Five wins... that would be terrible. With only four wins we can get a real QB.

    27. Minnesota Vikings (2-11) - Previously: #28 - I loved Jared Allen's quote about the city of Detroit:

    "If I had to live in Detroit, I'd drown myself in the river."

    Awesome. Allen, who is on pace to break Michael Strahan's single-season sack record, clarified his comment afterward:

    "I wasn't trying to be mean."

    Oh, OK. And here I thought Allen was being a jerk. Glad he cleared that up.

    By the way, I think the "I wasn't trying to be mean" could work elsewhere. I'm almost tempted to walk up to a really fat chick and say, "You look like a f***ing beached whale, you f***ing obese sloth. I'm not trying to be mean though!"

    I'd do that, but I don't want to be eaten.

    26. Kansas City Chiefs (5-8) - Previously: #26 - Todd Haley has been fired. About damn time. He's was an egomaniac and a failure as a head coach. Oh, and he was a complete weirdo too. Let me post CrazyCarl's animated picture again to remind you:

    25. Washington Redskins (4-9) - Previously: #25 - The Redskins put forth good effort against the Patriots, so I won't make fun of them.

    Instead, here are more Notes from GameCenter. Forum member SwAg Dynasty spent the entire Steelers-Browns game scouring the GameCenter board for dumb comments. Here are three:

    1. "YA1 my boy mednehall w/ the grub"

    Not that there's anything wrong with talking about Rashard Mendenhall's grub.

    2. "colts mccoy r gay "

    Colt McCoy apparently is so gay that he's gay plurally.

    3. "josh cribs touches like senduskie"

    Joe Paterno should be fired for not going to the police about Josh Cribs!

    24. Buffalo Bills (5-8) - Previously: #23 - Ryan Fitzpatrick was good enough to receive a big contract back in October. Now, he sucks. What happened?

    The Adventures of Derek Anderson's Magic Flask!

    Ryan Fitzpatrick: I went to Harvard and I am very smart. You there, ask me any question on any subject!

    Derek Anderson: Heyyyyzzz iffff yewww wannnaerr be smarrrerr havvve a sssipp offff thissssss hic!

    Ryan Fitzpatrick: I am already a genius, but I suppose this can't hurt!

    *** Ten minutes later... ***

    Ryan Fitzpatrick: Woooaazz wuuttss onnee plusss tewww liiekk ffiiivee whooooaaa!!!

    Derek Anderson - the worst thing to ever happen to the Ivy League.

    23. Philadelphia Eagles (5-8) - Previously: #24 - Did you know that the Eagles, despite being 5-8 right now, could be in control of their own playoff destiny by Dec. 24 if the following four things happen?

    - Cowboys lose to the Buccaneers on Saturday night.

    - Giants lose to the Redskins on Sunday.

    - Eagles beat the Jets on Sunday.

    - Giants lose to the Jets next week.

    I'm going to have the urge to claw my eyes out if this terrible Eagle team makes the playoffs. But it is possible if Andy Reid puts his players in the best position and takes full responsibility.

    So you're judging teams by the win/loss record of the opponents they've beaten? Or just the Vikings? Let's take a look at some of the teams you have ranked in front of them.

    Vikings 7-12 (37%)

    Texans 8-17 (32%)
    Patriots 5-10 (33%)
    Falcons 9-16 (36%)
    Giants 2-12 (14%)
    Ravens 7-13 (35%)
    49ers 7-12 (37%)
    Bears 8-10 (44%)
    Packers 5-5 (50%) only 2 wins
    Steelers 5-5 (50%) only 2 wins
    Seahawks 5-9 (36%)
    Cards 11-9 (55%)

    Houston, New England, San Francisco, New York & Seattle haven't beaten a team with a winning record; while Arizona is two missed field goals from being 2-3.

    Minnesota on the otherhand has soundly beaten the consensus #1 team at the time, a second playoff team from last year on the road and demolished a bad team as they should. The Vikings have controlled these three games from the start; never trailing in any of them. Based on how they're playing, and not preconceived notions, the Vikings have got to be slotted about 8th. They very well may falter, but then they can be moved down accordingly. But for now, give them their due!

    And the Packers could just as easily be 1-4! They played terribly against the Seahawks until their offensive line started holding (and getting away with it) in the second half. Talk about bad calls affecting the outcome of a game. And they beat the winless Saints by a point. The Packers might eventually right the ship, but for now they aren't the 8th best team in the league.

    You should start ranking teams for what they're doing on the field not what your preconceived notions of them were.

    Shut up, how cares about your 49ers. No one cares. All of a sudden they are good and you think they are the best and being hated on by Walt. Walt doesnt care. The niners havent been any good since Young was there. But last year they were beat by the Superbowl champ Giants, who are getting their props for winning the big game. I dont see your niners winning the bowl last year so shut up. When or if they do they will get their props. But until then be quiet and wait until the LA Jaguars take away 30% of your fanbase since most californians only like the niners since the other two cali teams suck a lot.

    I shouldve stopped reading when you put a two-loss team at #2. Then I saw you had Arizona at 10 when they've yet to amass 300 yds of offense and just got anihilated by the "winning team" you have at 22. Makes a lot of sense, bub.

    I love how this fool of a journalist makes excuses for the teams he likes! Two teams at or below .500 in the top 10? REALLY??

    A good debater could make similar arguments for just about every team you have in the bottom ten. It doesn't change the fact that they are, by definition, LOSERS.

    Speaking of losers, where are the Saints? They barely were able to pull of their first win this week. If that's a team that doesn't deserve to be in the bottom ten, then none of the others are either.

    Instead, this guy plays makebelieve and gives stupid personalities to the teams that he wants to make look worse than they are. Here's an idea for you, use FACTS to support your decisions instead! All of what I read above looks too childish for anyone to take seriously.

    So, Walt, after the Giants come into San Fran and get their asses handed to them what will be the excuses? You love both angles of why the Giants 'under-perform' and how the 49ers are 'over-rated', but I just thought I'd get a couple excuses ready for you. so you can refuse to move the Giants down your 'lol-rankings' again.

    1) Giant Injuries but they still played tough on the west coast!
    2) Not a division game so the 'better team' lol was just not up for it instead looking forward to divisional opponents.
    3) "See what happened was that FLUKE" *walt fill in the blank*
    4) Niners were the home team and supposed to win this ball game.

    5) Niners just wanted revenge from last years NFC championship game but they are still not the better team.
    6)Alex Smith was pedestrian but just was lucky enough to get huge games from Frank, Kendall and Kap on the ground. OR
    7) Alex was only able to torch the Giant secondary because of all the injuries but mark my word the Giants will make the playoffs at 9-7 and rinse repeat in the playoffs.

    I mean come on man, we all know you and your gf both sit on the couch on Sundays fantasizing about who gets to suck off Eli first and who takes it up the ass after but lets get real. Can you look in the Mirror and say these Giants are better than this Niners team? Probably not, but at least when the Niners win again you have some of your game recap here ready to go to spin your reasoning for keeping those G-girls in your top 4.

    Pats at #2? With that record? Against those teams? No team in the AFC deserves a top 3 without a win against a quality NFC opponent.

    Walt, you may have pulled a Bomani Jones by calling Matt Hasselbeck "the worst quarterback in the NFL, starter or reserve." Trent "Captain Checkdown" Edwards and Charlie "Whithart" Whitehurst are still on active rosters as well as Hasselbeck's backup in Tennessee, Rusty Smith who has a career 5.1 YPA and 29.3 QB rating.

    note to Will : Just chill. These are one person's rankings and his opinion. Games aren't won or lost due to Walter's rankings. If Walter's rankings were more accurate he would probably be doing much better in his wagering.
    I agree with your assessment about the 49ers being a top 3 team but with the exception of a handful of teams at the top and a handful of teams at the bottom, there isn't a lot of difference between the rest of them who will take turns beating each other. Worrying whether a team is ranked 12th or 18th is a waste of time.
