    Lightbulb Power rankings week 3



    NFL.com: #8

    CBS: #6

    ESPN: #5

    Fox: #6

    MSNBC: #8

    Yahoo: #3/5

    USA Today: #7


    Please add any others ....

    Anyone else surprised at how high others see our team? I expected to see the Ravens in the 10 to 15 range after the three 4th Q collapses (2 Defense, one Offense).

    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    I think the key is that none of the other teams with a loss have looked all that great either... the five unbeatens have looked very solid, but there are questions everywhere else, and due to our showing last year we're a pretty safe bet. Keep in mind that we had a narrow, controversial loss on the road in spite of turning the ball over six times; since then we've shown we can fix the mistakes, and we've presented good depth on offense and defense. We've got a long way to go, but as long as we keep improving over the next couple of games, we'll be prepared for the hard times at the end of the season.

    This is how I woud rank them:

    1. Patriots


    2. Colts
    3. Steelers
    4. Cowboys
    5. Packers
    6. Ravens

    And I'm not sold on the Pack, but I have to give them credit for 3-0.

    It's a depressing season so far with the Colts, Patriots and Steelers all looking better than everyone else. . .

    Think the Steelers will stumble -- media's on the band wagon far too early.

    Continued to be surprised on how good the Colt's D and the Patriots O are -- we'll certainly get our chance in 6+ weeks but right now we would not be anywhere near ready for them

    The Steelers have played 3 of the worst 10 teams in the league, to quote the wolf...let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

    Sure, they've looked ok...but that's all based on Willie Parker getting 25+ carries....you think that will work against the Patriots and Ravens of the world? Or even the Broncos? Doubt it.

    Shhhh, don't tell Stealer fan. They seem to think they have the division wrapped up already.

    And now the Ravens will play some of those doormat teams as well. They could be 6-1 headed into P-burg.

    Im still looking for a reason why we have been taken off Vegas's board 2 of the last 3 weeks. Cant help but think the odds makers do like the Ravens chances winning the division ...

    ... or someone on the inside is making bets!

    Steelers haven't done anything I didn't expect of them yet, if they'd done anything less I'd be disappointed by them, if a Ravens fan can be disappointed by them underperforming. I fully expected them to be 5-0 through five games and won't sit up to take notice until after then.

    I wouldn't sell the Steelers short. I'm not jumping on their bandwagon just yet, but they have looked very impressive. They haven't really played anyone yet, but they have done what good teams do, destroy the teams they should destroy. We, on the other hand, have not done that yet.

    UK, if we struggle with the Browns in Cleveland, will that change your mind about the Steelers, keeping in mind that the Steelers toyed with the Browns in Cleveland?

    Not especially because we always try our best to lose to Cleveland in Cleveland, how we deal with the Browns has no bearing on how the Steelers dealt with them. Even at our best and the Steelers worst (last year as a prime example), the Steelers are always more clinical with the Browns than us.

    What I mean by my not being impressed with the Steelers is what I said, they've not done anything I didn't expect. I fully expected that with their limp start to the schedule and all of the effects that a new head coach brings to a team, I fully expected them to role to a 5-0 start. That's not to say that I'm not impressed with how they've gone about their business, but I'm not going to jump on their bandwagon or be overly worried about them until I see them against a higher calibre of opposition. They're still in my top 5 for Power Rankings but they can fall far and fast.
