    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.

    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.
