After Seattle demolishes previously #1 ranked 9ers, they are

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • #6 in the new power rankings. Wow, we rose 1 freaking spot. Screw you ESPN. Thank god these dumb power rankings don't even matter. At least Sando gave us some love by ranking us #3, while everyone else didn't dare rank us above #5.

    They rank the 49ers, Packers, and Patriots above us? We beat ALL of those guys on the field! Disgraceful.

    EDIT: Also, guess what? Atlanta goes and beats Detroit, moves up 3 spots. Seattle DESTROYS the 9ers, move up 1! You are so smart ESPN!!!! I TOTALLY see the logic here!

  • ESPN runs an extremely level one sort-by-record-with-some-recency-bias-thrown-in power ranking.

    It's of no consequence. This isn't college football, where public opinion actually has an effect.

  • We beat 3 of the teams above us. You can call SF a "split / Home/Away" - but still - 6?? I can see maybe 4 or 3 - but 6??

  • It's pretty clear that ESPN has a marketing agenda. Who gives a crap about the Jets and Tim Tebow at this point? Yet it leads in all their coverage. I wouldn't put too much in those rankings. It's just more fuel to the fire for our Hawks.

  • This is great news. I love it as much or more than you guys hate it. I also hope Russ does NOT win ROY.

    Yep.

    I really do.

    I hope he comes in third.

    Because I think this team's performance throughout the playoffs will benefit from as much snubbing as we can get.

    I want a Super Bowl trophy.

    That is all the external validation I crave.

    God forbid anyone would like to see ROY & a Super Bowl. Wilson is definitely the type to win an award and mail in the rest of the season, isnt he?

  • I'll bet there are a lot of people more concerned about Wilson being ROY than he is.
    I didn't ask him and he's issued no statement, just a hunch.

    I think you are right. Doesn't seem to be his style.
