I'm a regular reader and only an occasional poster, but I figured that we're at an appropriate point in the season for me to share something I've been working on over the past week or so. It's nothing too remarkable, but it might interest some of you. All feedback is welcome.
I don't place much, if any, stock in power rankings, but I always enjoy reading people saying good stuff about the teams I like. The Falcons are getting a lot of respect from the media with their recent wins. Real Clear Sports' has averaged together the power rankings from a number of respectable organizations like ESPN, CBS, Fox, and USA Today and found out that we come out on top.
Their top 5 (and average rank):
1. Falcons (1.58)
2. Patriots (2)
3. Jets (2.67)
4. Ravens (4.33)
5. Saints (5.44)
