    2011 Playoff NFL Power Rankings
    Follow @walterfootball for updates.
    1. Green Bay Packers (15-1) - Previously: #1 - I've been posting quotes from Taton in the Colts' capsule in these NFL Power Rankings all year. Taton has given us great gems like "quit imcomplete Colts!!!!!!" and "colt need fire cach caswell!!!! he spend to much tiem licking penas in back offece with jim isray and cristis prainter!!!!" OK, that last one is mine.

      The Packer version of Taton is ADawkins. If you don't feel like clicking the link, here are some of his most recent posts:



      It's like some sort of secret spy code. This is even stranger:



      OK, ADawkins is definitely some sort of secret government spy. His greatest NFL memory is "yes?" He's good. Man, I hope ADawkins is working for America, and not Communist Russia.

    2. New Orleans Saints (14-3) - Previously: #2 - Not everyone is a believer in the Saints...



      All bettors should be "weary" of that Rams game. Seriously, how fixed does that loss feel now? The Rams couldn't even beat the Seahawks or Cardinals, yet they somehow destroyed the Saints? I feel like the government should check Sean Payton and Drew Brees' bank accounts to see if they made a huge deposit around Oct. 30.

    3. New York Giants (10-7) - Previously: #8 - Remember when Eli Manning said he was an elite quarterback? Well, Migelini, the dumbest person of all time, disagrees. Here are his NFL quarterback rankings:



      That's right - forget being in the same class as Tom Bradey and Ben Rof Lits Burgler; Manning isn't even ahead of Tarvis Jackson and Tim Teebow.

    4. Baltimore Ravens (12-4) - Previously: #3 - Joe Flacco after his Week 1 win versus Pittsburgh:

      "If I were asked if the Steelers are going to win the Super Bowl again, I'd say no."

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

      1. "it it 3pm sunday yet. man i cant what"

      What? Can't what? You can't what!?!?!?!?!

      2. "ay to go ref terrible call way to jib Cincinnati"

      Google defines jib as "A triangular staysail set forward of the forwardmost mast." Damn refs always jibbing the Bengals.

      3. "LMAO THE TEXANS FANS ARE HATTING ON THE JAGS AND THE STEELERS FANS ARE HATTING ON THE RAVENS LOL..I LOVE THIS GAME"

      Watch out for those hats, Ravens and Jags.

    5. New England Patriots (13-3) - Previously: #4 - The secret to New England's success this year? Mike Ditka said it on Sunday NFL Countdown last week:

      "A great offense is better than a bad defense."

      And here I thought teams would rather have a bad defense than a great offense. Shows how much I know.

    6. San Francisco 49ers (13-3) - Previously: #5 - The 49ers were supposed to face the winner of the Giants-Falcons game; not the Saints. Well, at least according to Charles Barkley anyway, who went 0-2 on his picks on NBC.

      I sat down with Sir Charles to get his picks for Round 2:

      Me: Hey Charles, thanks for taking the time to talk to me. You look great, by the way, no homo.

      Charles Barkley: Why thank you. The secret to the weight loss is two things... first of all, you got to go on Weight Watcher's. Weight Watcher's is great. I lost 38 pounds on Weight Watcher's.

      Me: Good to know for future reference. OK, let's get to the picks. Who will win the Saints-49ers game?

      Charles Barkley: Let me tell you somethin', Ernie. I picked the Lions to beat the Saints on national TV. That was a turbl pick. I think the Saints will win this game for three reasons. First of all, the Saints have better players than the 49ers, so the Saints will win this game.

      Me: OK, so what are your other two reasons?

      Charles Barkley: What you talkin' bout, Ernie?

      Me: My name's not Ernie. It's Walt. How about the Packers-Giants?

      Charles Barkley: Ernie, I like Green Bay for two reasons because Green Bay has more talent than the Giants. I say this because of three things. First of all, Aaron Rodgers is better than Eli Manning. And first of all, Green Bay has more talent, Ernie.

      Me: That's some great analysis, Chuck. Let's move to the AFC. Can you see the Ravens losing to the Texans?

      Charles Barkley: Ernie, let me tell you somethin'. You can't say that any team in the NFL does not have a chance to beat another team in the NFL. I'll bet you dinner that Houston will beat the Ravens.

      Tony Dungy: You can't bet! You can't bet! You can't bet!

      Me: Tony Dungy, what are you doing here? It's OK, he's just betting dinner.

      Tony Dungy: You can't bet! You can't bet! You can't bet!

      Charles Barkley: You're bein' turbl, Ernie. I'm just tryin' to bet some dinner with Ernie.

      Me: Yeah, Tony. Stop being a jerk. Speaking of, Rodney Harrison, who invited you?

      Rodney Harrison: Charles Barkley will go 0-4 with my picks. He should just stick to basketball or listen to me. Because I know everything.

      Me: I'm done here. I don't want to be involved with Rodney Harrison in any capacity.

      Charles Barkley: Ernie, Rodney Harrison is turbl for five reasons. First of all, he wouldn't bet dinner with me, and then he insulted me on national TV. And Tony Dungy's turbl for eight reasons. First of all, Ernie, Tony Dungy wouldn't let me bet dinner with Rodney. And also, I lost my picks on national TV.

      Me: Who are you talking to, Charles? This turbl interview is over.

    7. Detroit Lions (10-7) - Previously: #6 - Just thinking ahead here... Matthew Stafford is 23, right? If he averages 4,600 passing yards per year (very possible with Calvin Johnson and all of the other weapons) over the next 12 seasons, he'll have about 60,200 yards by the time he's 35. That would put him 11,600 short of Brett Favre's record.

      If Ser Stafford does approach Favre, I can only hope that he doesn't annoy us by waffling on retirement. I can already hear the back-and-forth text chimes between Stafford and Peter King. Ugh.



    8. Denver Broncos (9-8) - Previously: #16 - Right after I picked the Broncos to upset the Steelers, an employer of this Web site e-mailed me. He told me that he really liked my pick because I was going with Tebow over "The Rapist."

      That made me more confident in the selection, so perhaps I should have made it a 14-unit play.

      Oh, and by the way, the only thing upsetting about Denver's victory is that we'll have to wait a week to hear what Cris Carter, Keyshawn Johnson and Merril Hoge have to say about Tebow. As Carter pointed out during Sunday NFL Countdown: "The Steelers are really lucky with these injuries that they're playin' Denver this week, hee hee hee honk honk!"

    9. Pittsburgh Steelers (12-5) - Previously: #7 - I loved Tim Tebow's passion and emotion on the sidelines, but even he would disapprove of this NFL.com GameCenter graphic:



      Come on, GameCenter. Just because Big Ben was accused of touching some girls inappropriately doesn't mean that we have to kill him and pretend he was never a life form.

    10. Houston Texans (11-6) - Previously: #15 - I have something really insightful to say about the Texans. Here it goes... I think...

      Sorry, Marvin Lewis just challenged.

      Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, this is something really important that you Texan fans must know. I believe that...

      Sorry, Marvin Lewis just challenged again.

      Houston is definitely going to...

      Another Marvin Lewis challenge!

      The Tex...

      CHALLENGE!

      Hmm... what was I saying? I forget. Sorry. Well, at least the Texans won.

    11. Atlanta Falcons (10-7) - Previously: #10 - Here's why Mike Smith's decision-making is stupid: Atlanta spent so many resources on Julio Jones. It used a really early draft pick on Matt Ryan. Why not have Ryan air it out to Jones (or Roddy White or Tony Gonzalez) on play-action in short-yardage? I've never understood why teams almost always run the ball in these situations. If you're going to be aggressive, be aggressive. Don't half-a** it.

      Well, look on the bright side, Falcon fans. At least you don't have a quarterback who goes to prison for dogfighting.

      Speaking of which, I received an e-mail from Joe B. a few weeks ago:

      Walt, did you just hear that comment by Cris Collinsworth? He claims that during the Eagles' bye week, QB Dog Killer bought "played golf and bought a parrot." First of all, how is he allowed to own any pets? And secondly, there's your angle to reintroduce him to Emmitt on the Brink! Mouse fighting has to be illegal by 2016, so I guess parrot fighting is next in line. I also think the "QB Dog Killer" line is vastly overplayed. Give the guy a break! (massive sarcasm) He should now be called "QB Parrot Owner." Do you tink so?

      I tink so. And yeah, I didn't think QB Dog Killer was allowed to have pets. Parrot fighting can't be too exciting though. What are they going to do, squawk insults to each other?

    12. Cincinnati Bengals (9-8) - Previously: #12 - Cincinnati will win the Super Bowl via these three steps:

      1. Trade Tony Daltin to the Seahawks for Tarvis Jacksin.

      2. ???

      3. Win Super Bowl.

      If you disagree to me, take it up with Migelini:



      You can't argue with that.

    I'm a Rams fan and I cannot possibly see how you have my team as high as #8. Bradford is still unproven at QB, the offensive line is depleted by free agency, and we still need help at receiver. I hate to say it but even I cannot justify my Rams as even a Top 15 team, let alone a Top 10 team

    Hard for the Browns not to be good this year with 5 pro bowlers, 10 picks in a strong draft, 2 in the first round and 50 million in cap space.

    Can we stop the uninformed bashing of the Flacco contract? Flacco has the third highest cap number on the team right now and that is only after Suggs signed his new deal which lowered his.

    Flaccos contract is essentially a three year deal with a series of three one year options after that. the odds are that the Ravens restructure, cut or extend him after the 2015 season.

    in these first three years his cap is never higher than 14.8 million(lower than Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Phillip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo and Jay Cutlers highest numbers during the same span), and there is very little repercussion for cutting him when the three years are up. to blame any of the Ravens cap problems(an oxymoron to begin with as they started the offseason(before pittas deal) almost 30 million under the cap) on Flacco is ridiculous. if you want to balme any player blame Ngata or Suggs. those were the deals eating 15+ million each over the last two years(this year Suggs extended to lower cap).

    I get so tired of hearing this because at this point, people who follow football know the Flacco deal isn't a bad one, but now it has just become an easy target to point at regardless of the facts. you're better than this.

    How do you put a team that has 6 pro bowlers at 31st? How is firing an incompetent front office idiotic? Is hiring an always consistent coordinator as head coach stupid? Also, considering the near 60 million in cap space and 2 first round draft picks, you can screw yourself Walter.

    I like the fact that just a few years ago, all of the NFC West teams were in the bottom half, now they all are in your top 8! That's a symbol of how important a great front office is!

    Can I point out regarding the Josh McCown...You do realize that he went 3-2 in his starts, with wins again Backdoor Bandit led Packers, Ravens, and the as you said Mediocre Cowboys, and losses again the Mediocre Vikings, and Mediocre Rams. Cutler went 5-6. So yes had worse record but he actually putting up about 1 point more a game than Josh McCown. So, it is not like Josh was really playing that well. I honestly think what you are doing is same thing everyone else did for QBDK, he had that great game against Washington and everyone was so excited, well Josh had that great game again Cowboys, and you got excited, otherwise he was a good back up, with a lot of talent around him. And this is just word, you are actually really good analyst, but up 16 to games a week is a bit much for one person to watch maybe you should hire someone to help you.

    Per my comment below, I mean Flacco has the 11th-highest cap hit for QBs.

    Joe Flacco has the 11th-highest salary cap hit for 2014. He's not crippling this team. And wait until you see what the Ravens do in free agency with the money they could have spent on Monroe before we say it was a bad decision. Monroe isn't a really top LT, so he doesn't deserve top LT money.

    You talk about poor locker rooms but fail to mention the mess in your #1 49ers locker room? Coach and GM hate each other, players fed up with Harbs, team is a mess and relies way too much on over the hill players

    There is no way the Falcons make it back to prominence. Although I dont see Carolina being as good as they were last year it would be a slow day in hell for Atlanta to be ahead. Also, you must really like GB, they too are losing a lot of players to free agency and they are going to have to rebuild. They will make the playoff but Seattle, SF, Carolina and NO have the NFC locked up for atleast 5 years. GB just cant compete with their current scheme. Time to retool just in time for A. Rod to retire.

    How can u rank the 6th worse team from last season the 9th best for next year...especially pre draft and free agency...They have a terrible d-line and o - line, their star tight-end may be gone, and they still play in a division with the saints and panthers...three teams aren't gonna have a shot from that division. Oh and its funny u put the Cowboys in 22nd behind teams like the ravens titans and texans... They had the same or better record than all those teams...they also happen to play in the NFC which is way more stacked with talent then the AFC...and oh their entire team has actually been hurt both last 2 years...which is why they were 8-8, and missed the playoffs by 1 game both years...including last year where they lost the last game with their back up qb playing by 2 points to the team u ranked 11th...oh ya and the cowboys went 5-1 in the division...but they can't compete with the eagles LOL....ur a moron.
