Comparing 2008 Rankings to 2007

I was curious how this year's team's compared to last year's. The Hawks had the second-worst dropoff of any team in the NFL, next to the Pats.

Interesting to see that our +/- swing was almost identical to that of Miami's!

I know, right? Also interesting to see that the strength indicator has been a pretty good guide to the playoffs thus far, with the obvious exception of Arizona.

Things have pretty much gone according to plan. The 0.3 difference between the Giants and Philly make that a wash.
