    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.

    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.
