    Don Banks' NFL Power Rankings

    New Orleans Saints crack top 5 in NFL Power Rankings - Don Banks - SI.com

    Thoughts:

    New England at number 1? Didn't they need a miracle to beat the Bills?

    Ravens at number 4? The Chiefs gave them everything they could handle. He ranked them 28th.

    Chargers at 9? They owe their win to that gift that the refs gave them with the overturned TD catch.

    I realize it's early in the season, but it doesn't appear that Don Banks actually watched any games this weekend.

    ya thats bad...


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    GB at #3? I'll admit GB could be good this year, but whole this list is terrible!

    Another reason to miss Dr. Z. Say what you will about him but I always appreciated his top team being the defending champion until they were either defeated or something horrible happened.

    "Minnesota Vikings (1-0) - Rank #12

    I'm not ready to bump the Vikings way up my board based on a win over the bottom-feeding Browns. Minnesota actually trailed at halftime before it remembered the game plan this year is to give Adrian Peterson the ball."

    And...The Pats were kicking the Bills *** until what? The last 40 seconds of the game? Riiiiiiight.

    Minnesota is a top 10 right now, at the very least.

    I can't argue with KC's placement, but yeah, Baltimore shouldn't be 4th.

    Re: Don Banks' NFL Power Rankings

    Not sure I agree with the love for the Saints. Yes, we're all aware they're going to be able to put up points this year, but they gave up a lot of points last week, and we're talking about a lot of points to the Lions. What happens when they go up against a team with a pulse?

    Re: Don Banks' NFL Power Rankings

    Green Bay probably should have lost to Chicago, and Cutler threw 4 Ints. What does that say about their offense. What a terrible assessment of the teams so far. Minnesota is far better than #12

    Re: Don Banks' NFL Power Rankings

    This list is terrible! The Vikings are a top 10 team, the Titans gave the Steelers a great game and should be ranked higher, the Cowboys looked way better than 15th, Jacksonville played Indy close and they're sitting at 27, Washington and the Giants both played great and for some reason the G-men are 6 and the Redskins are 26?!? Don Banks should start looking for a new job.

    Re: Don Banks' NFL Power Rankings

    so much for the Patriots being at the top of the list. He'll probably drop them down to 3rd or 4th.

    It'll be curious to see if he keeps the Titans in the top 10, despite their 0-2 start.

    Re: Don Banks' NFL Power Rankings

    Do you really think the Chargers aren't a top ten team? A lot of other rankings have them even higher.

    They're in top half of the league, but if the Monday night game is any indication, then no, they are not top 10. Their run D was flat out terrible, and not likely to get better with the loss of Jamall Williams for the season.

    Re: Don Banks' NFL Power Rankings

    Did you watch the game? Their run defense looked horrible for the first quarter. They made adjustments and looked pretty good the rest of the game. The Williams injury will hurt, but every team has to deal with injuries.

    I absolutely watched the game. I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. I thought the Chargers were very lucky to get out of their Monday game with a win.
