    what a JOKE rankings from seahawk.net
    by RamDez
    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA

    The Seahawks.NET Power Rankings are based SOLELY on the Points Scored For rankings and the Points Scored Against rankings as published by NFL.com on each Tuesday. The Ranking is determined by adding the Offensive Ranking and Defensive Ranking with ties broken by comparing the raw numbers (for an example, see * below). Look for teams with records that don’t seem to match their rankings to spot underachievers/overachievers. For example, if a team is ranked low in the standings but has better record than all of the teams around them, that team is overachieving, whereas a team that is ranked high in the standings but with a poor record is underachieving.

    This week’s best: St. Louis Rams up 6 spots.

    This week’s worst: Buffalo Bills down 8 spots.

    Is DT Safer then QB?: A Statistical Analysis by Walter Football
    by Bralidore(RAMMODE)
    With all of the talk going on between Ndamukong Suh, Jimmy Clausen and Sam Bradford being No. 1 overall selections this year, I felt it was important to look at the hit and bust rates of both the quarterback and defensive tackle positions to see if the former was actually the riskier pick.

    Below is a chart of all of the quarterbacks and defensive tackles selected in the top 16* of each NFL Draft from 1993** to 2009.

    * Why top 16? I wanted to cover the top half of the first round, and anything below that gets distorted. For example, if a No. 20 overall quarterback starts and plays well (but not on a Pro Bowl level) for only 4-5 seasons, is he considered a bust? A top-16 quarterback would be, but a guy who is taken No. 20 isn't expected to be a perennial Pro Bowler or anything.

    ** Why 1993? I didn't want to go beyond 15 years because scouting has really changed since then. But then again, I also wanted to include Dan Wilkinson (the last defensive tackle to be drafted No. 1 overall). I also wanted to add in some quarterback busts like Rick Mirer and Heath Schuler. Overall, I thought going back to 1993 would give us an accurate and large enough sample size to work with.

    If he eats his way out of the league, perhaps he can do ads for Skittles.

    Alex Smith

    He's playing OK now, but he's a bust for a No. 1 overall pick.

    Eli Manning

    Some will argue how great Eli Manning is, but he's a top-12 NFL quarterback and a Super Bowl winner. The Giants paid him a ton of money for a reason.

    Was a Pro Bowler; sold tons of tickets; reached NFC Championship; exciting player before drowning dogs.
