    2011 Playoff NFL Power Rankings
    Follow @walterfootball for updates.
    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

    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.
