    2011 Playoff NFL Power Rankings

    1. New York Giants (13-7) - Previously: #1 - Congratulations to the Giants for winning the Super Bowl again. I can't say I have any regrets for picking the Patriots though. I noted on my picks page that I wouldn't have even bet the game if there were other contests on the slate. It just seemed too even to me. New England could have easily won if it had just recovered one of the fluky fumbles, or if Wes Welker hadn't dropped that long pass. At the same time though, New York dominated the time of possession and should have been winning at halftime. So, it could go either way, I guess.

      I'm not going to complain about the pick though because I got most of my props right. Kelly Clarkson even peed standing up after he sung the national anthem, so that's $100 in my pocket.

      At any rate, I can blame my Patriot selection loss on Migelini, who predicted that New England would win, 25-18. If you didn't see Migelini's Super Bowl posts in my Live Super Bowl XLVI Blog, here they are:





    2. New England Patriots (15-4) - Previously: #2 - I wanted the Patriots to win because the players dedicated their season to Robert Kraft's late wife. Unfortunately, some of the key members of that team came up short. Tom Brady missed Deion Branch for two big gains in the fourth quarter. Wes Welker had a bad drop that could have iced the game. Even Bill Belichick made a dumb move in challenging a pretty obvious reception, wasting away a precious timeout in the process.

      Brady's performance was the most disheartening. Remember when he was the most clutch guy ever? What happening to him? As I noted in my Live Super Bowl XLVI Blog, he always came through at the very end when he was a humble guy who drove a broken-down pick-up truck. Ever since he started banging/marrying/impregnating supermodels, however, he's always failed when it matters most.

      I thought I'd get some negative feedback for saying this in my live blog, but that didn't happen. I guess most people agree with me.

      In honor of this, I'm going to interview two Tom Bradys. I went back in time to talk to the 2005 version, and I just spoke to the current one. Did the current Brady remember that I spoke to a 2005 version of himself? No, of course not. If I've learned anything from watching Heroes, it's that there are plenty of loopholes to be found concerning time travel.

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

      2005 Tom Brady: No problem, Walt. Always a pleasure.

      Me: So, how does it feel to be a three-time Super Bowl champion?

      2005 Tom Brady: Terrible, actually - only because I've only won three. I was drafted in the sixth round, Walt. The f***ing sixth round. No one has any respect for me.

      Me: Really? Not even after three Lombardis?

      2005 Tom Brady: Oh, hell no. I'm going to win at least 10 Lombardis - maybe even more - until people start recognizing me as a great quarterback.

      Me: That's great that you're so dedicated to your craft.

      2005 Tom Brady: I love football. Nothing is going to get in my way.

      Me: Not even hot supermodels?

      2005 Tom Brady: No. You know, it's actually funny you should mention that because my agent set up a date with some sort of supermodel from Brazil. I only accepted just to be nice, but she won't even like me because of my broken-down pick-up truck. Not that it matters, since I don't want anyone distracting me from my goal.

      Me: I'll remember that you said that, but I'll let you go because I know you're busy. Good luck, and I'll talk to you soon!

      *** Now, I am traveling through time. Weeeeeeeeeeee!!! ***

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

      2012 Tom Brady: Ohhhhh!!! Ohhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

      Me: Whoa, what the hell did I just warp into? Tom, my bad, I didn't know you were having sex with 16 hot supermodels at the same time!

      2012 Tom Brady: Yeahhh! Yeahhhh!! Yeahhhhhh!!! It's a slow night, Walt. I usually bang 23 hot supermodels at the same time. Ohhhhh yeaaahhhhh!!!

      Me: Well, I'll let you finish...

      *** Five hours later ***

      2012 Tom Brady: Woooo, that was fun. Hey, you're still here?

      Me: Yeah, I wanted to ask...

      2012 Tom Brady: Hold on, one second. Crap, I'm late to my newest UGGs commercial shoot. I'll talk to you afterward.

      *** Two hours later ***

      Me: Hey Tom, I just wanted a few questions...

      2012 Tom Brady: Walt, can't you see that I'm busy? I'm preparing for my next magazine photo shoot!

      Me: Please, it'll just take five seconds. Didn't you once say that you wanted to win 10 Super Bowls and that you didn't care about banging hot supermodels?

      2012 Tom Brady: I didn't care about banging hot supermodels? Ha! What kind of loser thinks like that? Walt, I have three Super Bowl rings. That's enough for a lifetime. Do you know what's not enough for a lifetime? Only banging 23 hot supermodels per night. That's only 8,395 hot supermodels per year. My goal is to reach 20,000 hot supermodels per year, so if you multiply that by 50 years, you get an even one million hot supermodels. When I bang my one millionth hot supermodel, I can then concentrate on getting that fourth Lombardi.

      Me: That's great that you get to have sex with so many hot women, but I have to say, I'm disappointed as a football fan.

      2012 Tom Brady: As a football what? Look, Walt, I'd love to talk to ya, but I need to get my supersonic jet plane waxed.

      Me: Supersonic jet... what happened to your old truck?

      2012 Tom Brady: Ha! Like I could ever bang one million hot supermodels with that old thing.

      And with that, I now feel incredibly stupid for picking the Patriots.

    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.
