§ NFL Power Rankings

Miami RedskinsR.I.P. #21
  1. Patriots - Their passing assault went from SUCK to SICK with the new additions
  2. Colts - losing Freeney was a major blow, but the Champs are likely to bounce back
  3. Cowboys - Most complete team in the NFC, should have no trouble in playoffs
  4. Steelers - They have what it takes to win it all this year, but first must fend off the Browns
  5. Packers - I remember the exact moment I jumped on the Pack's bandwagon this year: Tracy White's TD a minute into the season
  6. Chargers - Rivers is this year what un-Sexy Rexy was last year: wide QB-rating range
  7. Jaguars - a road matchup with the Colts will mean everything to this team, let's see if they show up
  8. Seahawks - let's see if Holmgren is just using the Tony Dungy method: resting his perennial Pro Bowler
  9. Saints - Reggie Bush is now the primary back, let's see if #25 can handle the load
  10. Giants - very similar to the Jaguars: great D-line, solid offense, and need new coach
  11. Eagles
  12. Browns
  13. Lions
  14. Bears
  15. Buccaneers
  16. Titans
  17. Redskins
  18. Broncos

Everyone's thankful we're Hoosiers


A.Starr and EJ respectively earn Players of the Week, celebrating THE greatest weekend in Bloomington of 2007. The football team will be playing their first Bowl game since '93, the basketball team is undefeated and atop the BigTen, and the Men's Soccer squad is ranked #4 overall headed into the Sweet16.
Non-Btown News: The Indiana Pacers, Notre Dame Irish AND Superbowl Champion Indianapolis Colts all halted their 2-week (too weak?) losing streaks. The problem is the Irish are on a good note, at 2-and-whatever. With Freeney done for the year and more nagging injuries for Jim O'Brien's frontcourt, it's still amateurs over pros (...amateur's overprose!).
