Talk to me about penalties. I'm a casual Seattle fan, and it seemed like that game had a lot of penalties, and several of them were of the "game-changing" variety.

I know last week we saw a couple (Tampa/Jets and Greenbay/SF games). Are "game-changer" type penalties kept track of?

Also LOL at 5-0 halftime score.

robsul82: rickythepenguin: Saints have the chance to go to 3-0 with a win,

And we'll still be underneath the Falcons!  lol


Eh, look at our red zone efficiency last game and the fact that though TB racked up something like 118 yards in mostly dumbass penalties and the game still came down to the wire. I understand why we didn't rise this week with a panel of bloviating jaggoffs.

You know I always think the Falcons are too damn high, but I'm not seeing a big case for us leaping them this early in the season. Ryan's D is still unproven long-term, the Saints have yet to scream a fortyburger with the ease we grew accustomed to, and we have injury issues. I think these guys who get paid to say stupid sh*t (I do it for free) are keeping the Falcons riding on the coattails of last year's record, which even then was overrated IMO.

Even though we're not only 2-0 and have commanding tie-breakers, it's too early to move the Saints too far up the list.

danfrank: When you see the atrocious defensive numbers, just remember that they could have been way worse had the Iggles and Pack kept trying in the second half. Same goes for the offense, all of the scoring happened when their opponents went into the prevent for the last 30 minutes. So far we've been outscored 50-7 in the first half, and that 7 came on a fluke deflection/fumble for a TD.


This. Without that fluke, which came as the Eagles were about to score, it would easily be 57-0 for the first half. Which, by the way, is a good reason for the pundits to stop with their "the defense is getting tired" narrative. They are just as bad when they are fresh.

In fact, about the best strategy the defense has right now is to wear down the opposing offensive line by forcing them to have so much possession and march up and down the field. By the fourth quarter, they have them right where they want them!

And don't forget the special teams. You'd think that a team that punts and receives kick-offs so often would be better at it by now. It was just sad seeing Slowmover McOldguy back to receive towards the end of the GB game.

Bears with two 4th quarter comebacks against teams that were in the playoffs last year and they languish at 9. Packers go 1-1 and pound a questionable Washington team and move up two spots? Who the fark does these rankings?

The refs blew a lot of calls in both directions.  A bunch benefited the Niners, and a bunch benefited the Seahawks.  Certainly, bad refs didn't cause 29-3, but I'm looking forward to a rematch that hopefully will be better called.

A rematch that isn't at Magic Stadium, I might add.

Since this is my first Power Rankings thread appearance of the season, I figured it should be late as hell, rambling, and not very entertaining or provocative.  Suck it Bobby Three-sticks, how's that Ponder thing working for you Jennings, damn I wish we had Seattle's D, and cry moar Quitler, I love it!
