2008 Power Rankings Week 2

The power rankings are starting to settle in. We should see these become very representative of the team quality after this week's games. Based on who the Seahawks are right now, I have no quibbles with their current ranking. It boils down to three things:

  1. Points allowed (33.5/game)
  2. Yard Per Attempt (4.9)
  3. Opponents Yards Per Attempt (8.8)
Those are dismal numbers. The defense has been a bigger disappoint than the offense thus far, and that's saying something. Our offense can at least hang their hat on a huge improvement in yards per carry (4.6).

It's interesting to see Arizona so high. We'll see if that holds as they play stronger competition.
