Want to know how I know Pro Football Talk's "Power Rankings" are a joke?

I hate to say it but on the off chance there D does show up he might not be far from right. Of course that is quite a strech that is going to happen!

This kid I know bet me $25 the Saints win the super bowl.  If any of the other 31 teams win it I win the bet LOL

You should try up-ing the bet. Those are great odds in your favor. Tell him if he's so sure, make it $100....lol.

I don't see any reason having them at 9 is a joke. They've  been quite good since Brees and Payton got there. Saying they are in the top 3rd of the league is not far fetched.

I honestly don't get this Sean Payton is back nonsense. Saints were 2nd in the league last year in points scored. Their problem was not offense, it was defense. If their defense cannot hold (which will not be that easy considering they are switching schemes) what good will Sean's arrival do?

couple that with them switching to a 3-4 and having 0 legit outside backers for that system

I don't understand these polls and rankings...

For some teams (like the Panthers), they base the ranking off of last years season...

Then or other teams (like the Saints in this case), they base the rankings off of potential...

To be honest with the additions of Star, Kawaan, Cole, Kugbilla, Klein, Moore, Florence, Blackburn, Barner, Lester, Hixon, Ginn, and the return of Beason, Kalil, and Stewart and the fact that we are getting back to Panthers ground and pound footbalI... I think we have as much potential as anyone if we can catch a few breaks.

Isn't "Power Ratings" and joke synonymous?

I believe we are a team that could be anywhere from 6-10 to 12-4....it just depends on how much this team wants it.
