Ok, so I was a math major in college, and I actually put a lot of stock in the Sagarin ranks. Not to get into the weeds, but it takes into acount the connection the every game has to every other game. Also, if you look at his rankings they pass the eye test in a lot of ways (falcons and colts worse then their records indicate). I thought it was interesting where he had the panthers [url="http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/nfl12.htm"]http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/nfl12.htm[/url]

with the three teams above us in these rankings that remain on the schedule, we play at home. if we somehow manage to beat denver and tampa the next two weeks, we could see a HUGE shift in momentum for this season

I just took the GRE last week, and the math section may as well have been Mayan hieroglyphs. With that in mind, looking at that chart makes me say, "Ouch!"

...someone with an affinity for numbers & stats will have to break that down for me.
