    2011 Playoff NFL Power Rankings
    Follow @walterfootball for updates.
    1. New York Giants (11-7) - Previously: #3 - The Giants are the new No. 1 because of all the teams left, they have the best balance of offense and defense. Plus, they beat the Patriots before they even got rolling.

      Don't get too cocky, Giant fans, because a Super Bowl appearance isn't even guaranteed. Migelini, the dumbest person alive, is enamored with the 49ers and is picking them to win the "Super Game."



    2. New England Patriots (14-3) - Previously: #5 - As an employee of this site noted, "Tim Tebow beat the rapist last week, but he couldn't defeat the impregnator." If Tebow did advance to the AFC Championship against the Ravens, what would Joe Flacco be? I'm not sure, but I have to believe that his ugly mustache is some sort of sin.

      By the way, I'll never understand why Tom Brady plays in F-U mode against Tim Tebow. It's not like people think he's going to lose to Denver. What sort of idiot would pick the Broncos to win straight up?

      I'm going to have to ask Brady why he gets so fired up versus Tebow. Stay tuned for a very revealing interview.

    3. Green Bay Packers (15-2) - Previously: #1 - Still think losing one game to take the pressure off was a good idea?

      1. "Trust me our d-cooordinater is gone yes no offensive cooordinater lol! ture, but i mean thats what we need to and thats why everybody like him b/c he is gusty the problem was we ran and qb-sneaked do little julio jones thing and that was the o-coordinater's fault"

      Everyone liked him because he was gusty? Why would anyone like gusty people? I don't want to be around someone who farts a lot.

      2. "lets go Broncos these pats r old and proven to b cheaters josh mcdaniels is probely tellin the pats all of our schemes wow there cheaters"

      As Migelini would say, "I agree on you." That's clearly why I lost $550 on the Broncos.

      3. "uh wait when ryan picket gets back. They wont get run over by the run."

      As opposed to getting run over by the pass?

    4. New Orleans Saints (14-4) - Previously: #2 - I was at Whiskey Tango this past Friday night - I'll be writing about this in Jerks of the Week later - when several people asked me whom I picked to go to the Super Bowl. I had a bit too much to drink at the time, so I offered up this gem:

      "I'mm piicckkunnn Saiinnnss nnnnn... Broonnccooozzz."

      And with that, I lost a few readers. Oh well. I had a good time, though the lesson is learned - don't drink and offer predictions. This is not a lesson that Terry Bradshaw has learned, unfortunately.

    5. San Francisco 49ers (14-3) - Previously: #6 - And because of two drives, Alex Smith is no longer a No. 1 overall bust. Interesting. I love the work Jim Harbaugh has done with Smith, but I'd like to see what the 49ers do against a team that doesn't give them five turnovers.

      This Harbaugh storyline is pretty amazing though. It's just a shame that his pixie dust doesn't work in all facets. For example, some Harbaugh magic could turn Rosie O'Donnell into a hot chick, or Emmitt Smith into a wordsmith, or even Matt Millen into a normal human being who doesn't shove kielbasa into his own rear end.

    6. Baltimore Ravens (13-4) - Previously: #4 - The worst moment of the year for me is when they announce the winners of the Punk, Pass and Kick competition. Here are my reactions to it, as well as some other things people on the forum had to say:

      Me: Noooooooooooo not the Punt, Pass and Kick competition!!!!!!!!!! Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Brazil301: Nobody cares about you little girl

      Piazzajordan2: Who Cares????????????????????????????.... I didn't care in 2009, I don't care in 2012! lol

      Me: Noooooooooooooo stop punt pass kick ahhhhhhhhhhhh

      Eagles 1990: Nothing says crunch time in a playoff game like hosting a Punt, Pass and Kick contest BEFORE the 4th quarter

      Vbsiena: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo

      Me: pLEASE gOD MAKE it STOOSPPSPPP MAKKKEEE IIIIIIIIIIT STOPPPPPPPPPPP

      The Kaiser: The chick with the Vikings uniform on is about a 3 or 4 but with that uni on she's like an 8 or 9.

      Me: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh punt pass and kick i want to kill mysellllllllffffffffff

      Run-DMG: Jerry Sandusky would be an excellent hire for the Punt, Pass, Kick program.

      Hopefully Sandusky inadvertently disbands Punt, Pass and Kick. Otherwise, I may suffer an emotional breakdown next year.



    7. Denver Broncos (9-9) - Previously: #8 - I mentioned earlier that Tom Brady inexplicably goes into F-U mode against Tim Tebow, and I didn't understand why. Being the responsible journalist that I am, I sat down with Brady to find out what the deal is:

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

      Tom Brady: No problem, Walt. Always a pleasure.

      Me: Incredible game Saturday night. Congrats on your record, and make sure you give some dap to your defense for shutting down Tim Tebow.

      Tom Brady: TIM TEBOW!?!?? TIM TEBOW!?!??!?!?!!??!?! WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT TIM TEBOW!?!?!?!?

      Me: I'm just saying your defense did a good job...

      Tom Brady: YOU KNOW WHO DID A GOOD JOB, WALT!? ME!!!!!!!!!! TIM TEBOW SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!! I PROVED THAT I AM SO MUCH BETTER THAN TIM TEBOW!!!!!!!!!

      Me: I don't think anyone ever questioned that...

      Tom Brady: EVERYONE QUESTIONED IT!!!!!!!!! EVERYONE!!!!!!! ALL PEOPLE WERE TALKING ABOUT ALL WEEK WAS TIM TEBOW!!!!!!! NO ONE WAS TALKING ABOUT ME!!!!!!! DOES TIM TEBOW HAVE THREE SUPER BOWLS!? NO! DOES TIM TEBOW BANG HOT SUPERMODELS!? NO! I BANG HOT SUPERMODELS! ME!!!!!!!!! NO ONE BANGS MORE HOT SUPERMODELS THAN ME!!!!!

      Me: What does that have to do with this game?

      Tom Brady: EVERYTHING!!!! EVERYONE THOUGHT TIM TEBOW WAS GOING TO WIN SO I HAD TO PROVE THEM ALL WRONG BY WINNING AND THEN HAVING SEX WITH LOTS OF SUPERMODELS!!!!

      Me: You do know you were a two-touchdown favorite, right?

      Tom Brady: I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT POINT SPREADS, WALT!!!! I'M TALKING ABOUT GOD!!!! EVERYONE SAID TEBOW HAD GOD ON HIS SIDE, AND EVERYONE KNOWS THAT GOD IS WORTH AT LEAST 49 POINTS!!!

      Me: God is worth 49 points? Where'd you come up with that?

      Tom Brady: I CAME UP WITH IT LAST NIGHT WHEN I WAS HAVING SEX WITH HOT SUPERMODELS!!!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT TEBOW WAS DOING LAST NIGHT!?!?!? NOT HAVING SEX WITH HOT SUPERMODELS!!!

      Me: Well, he is waiting until he's married...

      Tom Brady: OH, HE'S SO SLICK, ISN'T HE!? BY BEING A VIRGIN HE THINKS HE CAN GET OUT OF THE HAVING SEX WITH AS MANY SUPERMODELS AS POSSIBLE COMPETITION, WHICH I'M CLEARLY WINNING!!!! I SHOWED TEBOW!!!! I'VE BANGED 50 TIMES AS MANY HOT SUPER MODELS AS HIM!!!!

      Me: You know, I'm beginning to think that you have mental problems.

      Tom Brady: THAT'S IT!!!! I'M GOING INTO F-U MODE AND THROWING FOR SIX TOUCHDOWNS THE NEXT TIME I PLAY YOU!!!!

      Me: Ah crap, I just peed my pants a little bit as soon as you said that. No wonder you're so good.

    8. Houston Texans (11-7) - Previously: #10 - As I wrote in my game recaps, it's a shame the Texans lost Matt Schaub because they would be the Super Bowl favorites as the most balanced team in the league. T.J. Yates did OK, but made too many bad decisions by locking onto Andre Johnson.

      Why did Yates just stare down Johnson the whole time? Hmm...

      The Adventures of Derek Anderson's Magic Flask!

      T.J. Yates: This is my second playoff game, and I'm going to throw it to all of my receivers!

      Derek Anderson: Diiiid yewww sayyy pplayyoofff!? Hic! I nneeevvuurr pppllay innnn playoooffff! Yewww cannn winnnn Suppprrr Booowwlllzzz by havvvennnn a sssipp offff thissssss hic!

      T.J. Yates: Why, thank you, mister! I do appreciate the help because I can't understand what Jake Delhomme is saying to me.

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

      T.J. Yates: I dunnnnnooo whooozzee onnnn myyyy teeammm exxxcuuupptt Annnndreee Johhnnsssnnn hic! So I'mmm juusss gonnnnna thrroowww taaaa himmmmm. Hic!

      Stupid Derek Anderson has derailed Yates' career.

    Your Bills writeup is limited to trashing them based on a hypothetical trade they never made. And Jairus Byrd assuredly did NOT take less money to play elsewhere, Buffalo absolutely did not offer him equal or greater amounts than NO did.
    Please, just try!

    Thinking the Jets are the worst team in the league - when they added YOUR top WR are about to sign CJ2k to pair with a good back in Ivory, have the best DL in football, The 2nd best QB in the division, not to mention rising stars at Cb, iL, OLB and slot receiver shows how little you know about the actual NFL teams. Please just stick to what you do sort of well-the draft.

    Ripping on the Lions for conecentrating on re-signing Joique Bell shows you must not watch the Lions. Bell may not be a big name, but he is a really good RB that can block as well as catch the ball out of the backfield. Also, no mention of the Golden Tate signing? How is signing the best hands in football not helping Stafford and Johnson?

    Quote directly from 2015 mock draft: "Many Jet fans may complain about their team being No. 2 overall, but that would completely ignore the "this draft order is random" sentence above"

    Quote from this article: "That's why the Jets will have a top-two choice next April/May, as you can see in my 2015 mock."

    I'm not sure there is a bigger definition of hypocrite?

    I think I am just about done visiting this website. Walt is the biggest Buffalo Bills hater on the web.

    The Bills traded a 6th round pick to acquire a legit WR, and Walt gives the trade a C- for the Bills and an A for the Bucs. What?! There is no way the Bucs turn that 6th round pic into someone better than the player they just lost.

    The Bills have had a good free agency. The lost 1 player (Byrd) whom the Saints overpaid to get. But the Bills added 2 good LBs, OL depth, and now a starting WR.

    Last year, EJ Manuel was 4-5 in games he started. As a rookie. Now, as a 2nd year player, he is bound to improve. The rest of their team is better and more experience, and deeper. There is NO WAY they get worse this year.

    Luke joeckel played five games last year, while playing out of position. Oh, he was a rookie as well. So, why bring that up? He hasn't played nearly enough to be evaluated properly...you should of just mentioned like you have been for the last year or so that David Caldwell supposedly was on the internet that one time and read Blaine Gabbert played better with better protection and he still sucks so therefore joeckel sucks. You seem like to copy and paste that gem everytime you write something about JAX.

    Your ignorance of certain teams is laughable, stick to Fantasy buddy your good at that.

    How can you state in the rankings that the sixth ranked team would beat the 4th ranked team in the SB, then rank that team ahead of them?

    "Update: Ozzie Newsome has been a great general manager, but he whiffed on this Eugene Monroe trade. No playoff appearance, plus Monroe is hitting the market. Once again, the Ravens are going to lose multiple valuable veterans."

    -----

    Ozzie whiffed huh? Is that Monroe ended up signed long term with the Ravens for less then Branden Albert, and Ravens signed all top UFAs ?? (besides Arthur Jones). Hah. That's not to mention the 4 comp picks Ravens get this draft from lost free agents last season.

    Thanks for keeping these predictions up, lets us readers see how little you really know. You're shooting in the dark just like the rest of us.

    OK I realize you website is not fully up to date and I am a Giants fan but.... Dallas better then the Giants? Come on man. With all they lost and how little they had added they should be below the Redskins in my opinion.

    Yeah the Rams are totally that good. I also love how you critize Wilson and Griffin for doing something other than training 24/7 7 days a week, something nobody does. "Baseball players are fat slobs" lmfao.

    Walter has some good insight and decent picks, but how much nonsense do you have to work through to find it? I especially like the advice for professional athletes and how they spend their time. "RG3 was showing off Baylor basketball uniforms, he's not working hard!" and "Russell Wilson is playing baseball. He's going to get fat! I don't like how he is becoming a star!" THATS WHAT SUPER BOWL WINNING QBS DO. They become stars. He's played baseball his entire life. Mind you, ITS MARCH. He's an athlete. By all accounts, he's one of the most competitive players and great leaders in sports. I'd be far more worried about Kaepernick than I would be RW. The Brady Haircuts bit might be the dumbest thing I have ever read. The made up conversations between TV personalities, players, etc. is completely idiotic.
