Week 10 power rankings

Start off with Yahoo.com's Shutdown Corner, who for my money is one of the best in the biz.

 

9. Carolina Panthers (5-3, LW: 11)
They have absolutely dominated the bad teams they’ve beaten, which is a great sign, but all of their wins have been against bad teams. This week’s game at San Francisco is really, really intriguing.

I thought it was also funny that he has KC ranked 6th.  I'm sure their fans are having aneurysms as we speak.

 

6. Kansas City Chiefs (9-0, LW: 6)
I’m willing to move them up, perhaps to the top, if they beat Denver. I’m not moving them up after they were outgained 470-210 by Jeff Tuel and the Buffalo Bills.

Prisco has us up two spots to 11

 

 

11 CAR.png Four consecutive victories has them feeling good about where they are in terms of playoff push. Now comes a real tough one: At San Francisco. powerrankings_green_up.png2(13)

Prisco also says KC is "the worst team to ever start 9-0".  I think he's got a point.

The "You can only play who you play" mantra we're all holding onto to run off people who bitch about our strength of schedule works for KC too. 

 

They played who they were scheduled to play, backup QBs and all, and are undefeated.  They may be the worst team ever to start 9-0 but they *are* 9-0.  IMO that deserves top of the list...or at the very least higher than 6.

@jjones9: If you're tired of hearing about bad CAR opponents, here's a stat. Of top 8 NFC teams, 1 (DAL) has a strength of schedule above .500

Huh - I didn't realize it was that significant.  I know it was a low number though.

 

Easy target, I suppose.

Pretty much this.  Beat SF in SF to go to 5 straight and who we beat prior, no matter how badly we beat them, doesn't matter.

 

On the flip-side lose to SF in SF and, no matter how close we come to beating them, we're going to catch a whole lot of "see I told you you were no good!" from a lot of people.

 

The reality, in either case, will be somewhere in the middle.

This is getting ahead of ourselves, but even if we lose to SF we will still have a winning record with New England coming to town for MNF. 

 

A win against SF, followed by a MNF beatdown of New England and the Panther bandwagon will be nearly as big as Star's left bicep.

 

No matter what happens against San Fran, Bank of America stadium should be electric that Monday Night.

Billick has us 7th.  He has at least seen some of our games first hand obvioulsy.

 

 

7 Panthers 5-3 15 7/28

I'm excited to watch this defense go up against the 49ers' power rushing game this weekend and I think Luke Kuechly has the coverage skills to keep Vernon Davis in check.

Edit:  wait wait wait, Billick moved the Panthers up 15 spots?!  Lol I think he is pushing hard to make our SF matchup the "game of the week".  Take his ranking with a shot of salt water because he obviously doesn't put much thought into it, after having us ranked 22 the week before.

Carolina Panthers (5-3) - Previously: #11 - I thought about slotting the Panthers above the Chiefs because unlike Kansas City, they've been demolishing their competition. But I have to wonder how Cam Newton would handle Bob Sutton's defense. He might be too busy thinking about posing like Superman to figure out how to beat the Chiefs. 
 
Speaking of which, would it kill Newton not to act like an arrogant a**hole most of the time? Sure, if he's having a great game against the top teams in the NFL, he can do his dumb Superman stuff all he wants, but there's very little honor in acting like a moron while up 20 against Mike Glennon.

on a side note: it feels very weird to be a top 10 team in power rankings

no no no the Jaguars are garbage, Kansas City has a great defense and a qb who doesn't fuck up. Don't know if that will win them a Superbowl, but that is far from a garbage team.
