    2011 Playoff NFL Power Rankings
    Follow @walterfootball for updates.
    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.

    u guys are idiots. these rankings are more like power rankings, but in one guy's personal opinion. as stated several times, they aren't simply an order of record, but of how the teams are playing. just cuz the falcons are 6-0 doesn't mean they're better than teams with a loss or two. that's the point. miami, for ex, is much better than 3-3, if u watched em play. it's an opinion of how good a team is based on how they play, not their record. so quit being homers.

    "Was there any doubt the Giants were going to score when they were down 23-20 late in the fourth quarter?"

    Actually yes. They lost close games to the Eagles and Cowboys and they played like poopy all evening.
    You are poopy Walt.

    I think it's funny that you don't even justify why the only undefeated team in the NFL is ranked 5th, instead you just troll the team's fanbase through some attempt at 1337 talk and a link to a forum post.

    Walt, it's a given that you have biases, but I would at least like to read some justification.

    Gee Walt, the Vikings could be 7-0 right now; maybe they should be ranked #1. The Packers could also just as easily be 3-4 right now Walt. They've played two very good games and one good one. That's only 3 out of 7.

    Why don't you just rank the teams in the order of your pre-conceived notions and just leave them that way for the year? It would free up some time for you, since it already appears that is what you're doing.

    Redskins defense is terrible. They are way too high on the rankings the past 2 weeks just because their QB is one of the top 5 in the NFL.

    If you're going to throw records out of the window and rank a team high just because of an elite QB on a solid offense, why is NO only at 20?


    Losing record and they have only played 1 divisional game so far. You have a team that is going to end up 5-11 at #11 in your rankings. Almost as bad as having Detroit in your top 20.

    You make a very good point. However I do not think Atlanta is a bad team by any means. I think they are certainly top 5, probably a top 3 team. My point was just because they are 6-0 doesnt mean they will finish ahead of teams like the giants, pats, or packers. The Giants ARE resilient simply because they are riddled with injury and their second/third stringers are coming through. Steelers and cowboys are lucky and overrated so bunch them in with the same group as Atlanta.

    Power rankings DO have something to do with records. The bottom 20 teams will all place by record at the end of the year with appropriate tie breakers etc. The top 12 teams have very little to do with record. It is all about how they finish in the post season with records and others simply being tie breakers. Fortunately for us you cannot tie in the superbowl. That being said I think the 6-0 falcons are a large underdog against the top 5 field to win the superbowl. That being said I drive my point home by saying just because they are 6-0 doesnt mean they should be power ranked at #1.

    Perception is a hell of a thing. Atlanta wins close games. They are lucky and overrated. If the Giants, Steelers or even the Cowboys(who have not won anything either in postseason in a long time)win close games, they are resilient. The combined records of the teams that Atlanta has beaten is not that impressive. But remember 6 of those losses on that record are by the hands of the Falcons. This is a QB driven league and Atlanta has beaten Peyton Manning, Phillip Rivers, Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton(who everyone picked to take over the NFC South). "Walter" still thinks that this the Jeff George Falcons of the 90's that will crumble. Matt Ryan had a tough game against the Raiders but he has stepped up his game. Atlanta gets their best run stuffing safety off of the PUP list in week 8. When the Dirty Birds are sitting at 8-0 after beating a reeling Eagles team and dismantling the Dallas Flying Romos, then we will see if they get some respect!! You can only play and BEAT the teams on your schedule. To this point Atlanta has beaten them all.

    It just dawned on me why wally is so silly with his picks....He's a closet gayboy without a big enough sack to admit it.
