Power Rankings Week 9

Minnesota is averaging a staggering 5.8 YPC. Anybody else miss Steve Hutchinson? Detroit is really coming on. The current incarnation of the Seahawks would lose to quite a few teams in the NFC in the playoffs. The Packers are 7-1 with a 3.3 YPC on offense. The Hawks defense and GB defense are almost identical statistically. We'll see if Holmgren's new pass first offense leads to similar results in the W/L column.

I know you use a statistical system but there is no way Seattle is the 10th best team in the league.

I had the same thought, but if you look at the teams below them, it's not like they are clearly superior either. Detroit seems to be. San Diego probably. Jacksonville maybe.

We all know the adage that you are never as good as your last win or as bad as your last loss.

I think this is a reasonably fair representation of the Hawks.

We're so close to them that we see all their flaws, but all but a few elite teams have serious flaws.
