    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.

    Woah there fella, I think it's a foregone conclusion that the Falcons are making the playoffs, but you're getting way ahead of yourself if you're discrediting a team for something that hasn't happened yet, and won't have the chance to happen for a long long time.

    Fact is, the only "prove it" game on the entire schedule is the Giants, and by that time they may have already clinched the #1 seed. They've beaten every team put on their plate, and unlike every other team in the NFL so far, they win even when they play like poop for the majority of the game, and that's scary.

    You must have missed the Washington game. We stood up in the second half and hammered the foreskins offense. The pick 6 against Oakland=good defense. Ask any coach in the league and they do not want to play Atlanta in the playoffs. If they can avoid major injuries, we keep rolling. Walt, look at the present, not the past. The defense kept us out in the past but they are finally manning up.

    @Mr. McSwag the Falcons are a mock. They will choke once again in the playoffs, NO ONE fears that squad. It's impressive what they do regular season but they dont get respect because in the end they know matty ice aint leading them to promise land.....another sad dissapointment down in hot-lanta. To bad, to sad

    RGIII only had less than 100 yards TOTAL before he got knocked out of the game, he was a non-factor. And you're going to discredit the defense for creating turnovers? What? I don't care what number you rank them, but that writeup was forum troll quality.

    btw, I think the your 1-5 record ATS with the Falcons shows really how little you know about them. Come on Walt.

    Normally I don't nitpick rankings, but I'm not really sure how the Bills are ranked higher than the Jets when the Jets destroyed them in Week 1 and Buffalo lost by a wider margin to the Niners. Not sure I understand the logic there. Again, same with the Dolphins. The Jets beat the Dolphins on the road. Not sure how they end up 8 spots higher, and even 2 spots higher than the Cowboys. These rankings seemed haphazard and scatter-brained.

    Dude, we all have seen you wearing that Giants tee. That explains why you have the Giants ahead of the Niners when the Giants have a worse record. Also explains why you hate the Eagles.

    Beat an undefeated team 17-3 and didnt move up in your rankings? Seriously? You have them ranked below 2 undefeated teams? Seriously? Stick to basketball, you obviously know nothing about football.

    I wonder if this writer will now find a way to keep the Steelers in the top ten after they lost to his #30, "derr" pa "derr" team.

    The thing I enjoy most about this version of a power ranking is the declared bias towards specific teams. I thought you, of all people, would be more realistic about the Texans. I mean, c'mon, why not put the Pats and Giants at 1 & 2 where you think they belong, regardless of their record. I'm sure you can find a way to spin off the Texans wins and baby-butt soft schedule as a reason to put your man-crush idols ahead of them. Ya friggin ass clown ;)
