#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??

I hate ESPN. Killed me to watch it last night for that Wilson Interview. They make me want to shoot my Television.

Ashley Fox is part of the ranking committee. Enough said.

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.

I agree completely. Keep the fire raging going into our 4th year.

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?

Did I say any of those things?

Nope.

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.
