    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.

    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.
