    2011 Playoff NFL Power Rankings

    1. New York Giants (12-7) - Previously: #1 - Forum member Migelini, the dumbest person alive, was a bit of a disappointment today. All he had to say was this:

      i theink 49s gong to supergame. what all you theinks.

      Speaking of those challenged by the English language, I thought this was absolutely hilarious - check out Ed Hochuli's 57-second explanation of the new NFL overtime rules in verse.

    2. New England Patriots (15-3) - Previously: #2 - Three random things:

      1. Who the hell did Shannon Sharpe pick in the Patriots-Ravens game? I was watching CBS prior to kickoff, and each analyst offered their selection, as usual. When it was Sharpe's turn, he said:

      uewghw bov 8ew akbfuobknboriskl sdkjbei ho ebei Jacksonville regherg o lnvo dsu ou HVuh iurbhn BREOOW Jaguars wroighrwiog rwoier wg elr ebhtbi nel.

      Am I nuts, or did he pick the Jaguars to win that game?

      2. Speaking of CBS' pre-game show, I couldn't believe they had James Brown talk to the e-Trade baby. What sellouts. It's amazing what these networks will do for money so their CEOs can buy that eighth mansion or 15th yacht that they need so desperately.

      I have an account with e-Trade, and I'm really considering transferring my funds to another online broker because of that bit. That was disgusting.

      3. On a lighter note, I got this text from Awesome Kelly in Arizona on Thursday night:

      I am confident the Ravens will win Sunday. They saved themselves for that game. I even bet a Pats fan a night of drinking and didn't take the points because points are for sissies. Quote me on that.

      Why do I get the feeling that Awesome Kelly in Arizona will be vandalizing Billy Cundiff's house sometime in the near future?



    3. San Francisco 49ers (14-4) - Previously: #5 - Poor Kyle Williams. I hope Niner fans aren't too harsh on him because he was just filling in for someone. It'd be like blaming a substitute teacher for the class failing a state-wide exam. That would be silly - even if the substitute teacher spilled coffee on the Scantrons, or something.

      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. "bardy is my cusin.... no joke.... he teachd me hwo ta trow da ball.....LOLZ JUS KIDDDDDDDDINNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!! LOLZ!"

      Wow, and here I thought this guy was serious about having a cousin named Bardy.

      2. "spekin of fake fans we all know hawkballz is really a 49er fan. duanebrew 2 b exact. oh an who uses the word puddlez? is that supposed to b sly? u jus sound like a ho mer amigo. thats all"

      This is true. Anyone who has used the word "puddlez" throughout the course of history has been sly. Don't believe me? Richard Nixon used the word "puddlez" five times during Watergate. Fact.

      3. "patriot fans are all white new englanders. their inherrited $ fuels their greed which makes them do evil things like racism. (trust me i lived in new hampshire for 2 years) which actually makes THEM and their fans DUMB AS ROCKS. I hope to see the Giants repeat against brady-bunch. btw i also lived in pittsburgh pa and it is WAY better then new england (people in new hampshire used to ask me what black people are like and stuff they ARE racist.)"

      I disagree with only one point. Racism is not evil. Racism makes rich people feel better about themselves, so therefore racism is a good thing.

    4. Baltimore Ravens (13-5) - Previously: #6 - When Billy Cunwhiffed from 32 yards, I immediately went to his Wikipedia page. I was expecting some epic changes to his page, given that people wrote the following on Nate Kaeding's wiki a couple of years ago:

      Nate Kaeding has been labled the biggest Pedophile, choke artist, catamite, p***s licking p***y in the history of football.

      And...

      Kaeding has also been known to wear womens lingerie before important games to help him focus on missing critical chip shots. Nate Kaeding is also Norv Turner's lifemate.

      There wasn't anything that legendary, but the following four changes were made:

      4. Billy losses afc championship for ravens, wide left. This proves he freaking sucks. Pats to the Superbowl!

      3. On January 22, 2012, Cundiff missed a relatively easy 35-yard field goal against the New England Patriots, causing his team to lose the game and an opportunity at the Superb Owl.

      2. Ray Finkle (born March 30, 1980 in Valley Center, California) is an American football placekicker for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.

      1. On January 22, 2012, Cundiff missed a 35-yard field goal against the New England Patriots, which sealed a Super Bowl XLVI berth for the Patriots.What an a**hole

    I agree the Jets probably won't be as good as they were last year, but dropping them to 32 just because of Vick is really ridiculous

    walt has said often that teams that 'win' in free agency often lose during the season and but then uses free agency as an excuse for new england, new orleans, and denver as being 'clearly' superior to green bay, you'v really phoned it in these last few years walt; it's a shame really.

    Even though two games may not make a difference on your placement of the Chiefs in this power ranking, they don't play the Colts and Bengals next year they have the Steelers and Titans. The Broncos have the Colts and Bengals due to their first place finish in the division.

    You gotta chill with the Jets hate man it's embarrassing. I get that you like trolling and making their fans mad, but I think you gotta give credit where credit is due. When they spend you criticize them and when they try to build through the draft you criticize them too. Which one is it?

    What courage, picking the four teams from last year's championship game to be top 4.

    One or more of them will be stepping back despite free agency.

    "Doesn't criticize sex offender Ben Roethlisberger or any of the other numerous NFL players that have committed terrible crimes."

    So Steve, when exactly was Ben indicted, much less convicted? Oh, that's right, he wasn't. Run along, now...

    Poor Walt. He doesn't understand the concept of guaranteed money. Troy P and Heath Miller contracts are not guaranteed after 2014, and only run to 2016. So how exactly will they be in Cap Hell in 2016? Miller has a lower cap hit than guys like Marcedes Lewis and Jared Cook. And Troy? Who is still a top 5 SS? Less than Branch, Goldson, and Griffin.

    So please Walt, look up "Salary Cap for Dummies." It will also help you understand that we only gave $5M guaranteed to Mitchell...so quit focusing on the $25M that he'll never see, unless he actually continues the success he had last year.

    Continues to criticize Vick, who served his time. Doesn't criticize sex offender Ben Roethlisberger or any of the other numerous NFL players that have committed terrible crimes. Walter Football, everyone.

    You keep referencing the Texans going 2-14 after winning their division. You fail to mention all the injury problems that led to that 2-14 season. You say the Jets will suffer the same fate, but don't think injuries would be the reason. Your biased toward Vick is obviously hindering your ability to be even the slightest bit objective.

    Walter,
    I only read this site because it talks about football year round. Most sites don't. Don't get too high on yourself, because your writing style suggests you are a douchebag. Seriously, I'd lean towards punching you in the face if I ever met you.
    That's unfortunate, because you appear to want to be a writer, yet your writing style makes you unlikable. Is it just me?

    Patriots should be further down than 4, they are not that good. The broncos got some good names in free agency, but Ware is getting old, Talib had one good season with general palpatine is he worth his contract? no. I don't know much about T.J ward, and Emmanuel sanders should thrive. Is Thomas going to be as good in second year now everyone has tape and where was he in the playoffs? Can Montee Ball be as good now that he has every carry and what happens when he gets injured? the only Brightside is that they have von miller back. Maybe an NFC 1-5 more reason for unconferenced playoffs

    Panthers had 1, ONE, OL of any importance retire. Hangartner was benched in favor of projects and Byers never saw the field. Typical display is ignorance from the WF staff. Further proof that just because you have a website doesn't make you knowledgable.
