Again, this isn't rankings because of win/loss records, points scored, etc.. Its who they think are the better team. Right now after a loss to a 2-6 Pittsburgh team that had looked bad all except one game, no one can agrue this. Its actually being very generious considering where they could have put us.
The Giants have lost to arguably the two best teams in the league in Indy and Chicago, and another top 10 team in Seattle. We have lost to a 2-6 team, a 5-4 team, and a top 10 Ravens team that almost lost to the Tennessee Vinces this weekend.
Well, yeah, there's that.The Giants have lost to arguably the two best teams in the league in Indy and Chicago, and another top 10 team in Seattle. We have lost to a 2-6 team, a 5-4 team, and a top 10 Ravens team that almost lost to the Tennessee Vinces this weekend.
Seahawks have managed a 6-3 record _without_ their two best players who are both returning soon.
That's pretty much what I was thinking. Yes, Parker had a career day. But mostly on two runs, and one of which was a total breakdown- (the second where McKenzie inexplicably overran the play by about 10 yards)."The way the defense played in Pittsburgh on Sunday has to be a concern as we head down the stretch. The run defense was dominated."
Actually, I know you can't take out plays in the game -- but except for those two 70+ yard runs, we pretty much kept them in check. Of course, you can't take the runs away and that's the concern, but I don't think we were "dominated."
i think comparing games against common opponents....we did a little better than the Giants but give or take one spot is no big deal. Winning will elevate our ratings.
