Interesting old study from FO about beating up on bad teams

    I've received a lot of e-mail since Football Outsiders took over the FOXSports.com power rankings this year. Many of the e-mails I get read a little something like this:

    "Team X blows out a losing team and you move them up your power rankings. But when Team Y pulls off a clutch victory against a winning team, you don't move them up. A close win against a good team is a lot more important."

    There's only one problem with this statement. It isn't true.



    Interesting.........

  • I'd say we dominated Minnessota. They should've only had 17 points.....that last FG there was a blatant delay of game that wasn't called, which would've put them out of FG range. Damn replacement refs ! Wait.......


    So what does the article say about teams that get beat up by bad teams ?
