    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.

    How does Cowboys fall out of top 10? Sure they losted to Portland Seahawk, but I hear from reliability source Migelini that Seahawk best team in NFC, maybe even best team in NFC West

    Walt, I'm not saying the Eagles are number #1 but not in the top 10, did you watch the same game I did, Baltimore's Def couldn't stop them, they stopped themselves with 4 turnovers. You have Balt at #2. I nominate you for jerk of the week on this one. Losing Kelce is a big loss but #14 C'mon Man!

    The Falcons should be higher than 7. They flashed an elite offense in week 1 that still looked pretty good against a great defense this week, and the Falcons defense dominated Manning for most of the game. They're at least better than the Ravens and Giants, who are both far too inconsistant.

    Michael Irvine said that in a bold prediction.. They do it for fun every week, he didnt actually think he would score 4 touchdowns. Infact, he still picked the 49ers to win the game.

    I would switch the Eagles with the Giants. Giants are lucky they aren't 0-2, and they definitely have problems with the running game and D. Say all you want about Dog Killer, but he rallied his team twice in the closing minutes. I would also move the Falcons up. Obviouly Walt has a bias for the Giants and hates the Eagles. Walt, be objective!

    I'm glad you're giving some love to the NFC west by moving the Cards and Seahawks up. Both have scary defenses that will surpise people. Packers better not overlookd the Seahawks up in Seattle this week.

    I like the Ravens, but you have to drop them after losing to the Eagles. An elite quarterback should be able to drive his team into field goal range with 2 minutes to play.

    I agree with the top 5 teams. The season will probably end with these teams in the top 5. However, you have to give the Niners the edge for #1 NOW given that they beat the consensus preseason #1, and another playoff team from last year.

    I'm speechless. Why the Eagles are number 14 is simply incomprehensible. If the Ravens are really the number 2 team, how can the Eagles be 14th after beating the Ravens to go 2-0? And your argument that the Ravens "should have" won is complete bull. The Eagles had plenty of bad calls go against them (most notably a poor spot inside the Ravens 10 yard line), not to mention the Ravens would have been blown out had it not been for three Eagles red zone turnovers. But let's see if Team A should be 14th and Team B should be 2nd after looking at some stats:
    1st downs:
    Team A: 26
    Team B: 17

    Total Yards:
    A: 486
    B: 325

    Passing Yards:
    A: 357
    B: 214

    Passing yards per attempt:
    A: 11.2
    B: 5.1

    Rushing yards:
    A: 129
    B: 111

    Time of Possession:
    A: 34:21
    B: 25:39

    The Eagles dominated this game, except for turnovers. They are definitely part of the game, but to rank the Ravens 12 spots ahead of the game is simply ludicrous. You make Skip Bayless look like an objective genius.
