    Re: NFL Power Ratings in the Home Stretch

    It will take something very near to a miracle to put this team in the SB.

    I'm not hating, I'm just being realistic.  Colts are going to be very, very tough to beat in Indy.  Beyond that, SD looks good again, and eiter  NO or MINN is going to take the NFC.  Any of those teams could well prove to be too much for the Pats.

    That said, they're likely going to go 11-5.  Same as last year, except that last year they missed the playoffs.  They'll go to the playoffs and win the opener.  Beyond that, yikes.

    Re: NFL Power Ratings in the Home Stretch

    I'd much rather see the Pats get that 4th seed, and win at home in the opening round...setting up a rematch with those hated Colts. If the Pats get the 3rd seed, the Colts would have a relatively easy path to the SB, as they would avoid playing either the Pats or the Chargers...just like in 2006, when those bums won it all. 

    Tex, the way this years been going for these guys you can almost set the schedule to this now. You mentioned that good teams win and these guys have come from behind in the forth quarter seven of their games. Couple that with getting the benefit of timely calls and this seasons setting up nice for them so this wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    As most know, I give the Patriots a lot of credit.

    They're better off with the #3 seed.  San Diego is still a couple of points below Indy. 

    The toughest game is when the Patriots play a team that has been resting for 2 weeks.  That's why I'd rather have them play S.D. 

    No guaranteed wins, no guaranteed losses either.  They're all close games except for that first one in Foxboro January 9 or 10.

    Tes, Assuming the Pats win the AFC East and their Wild Card Game... I would much rather travel to Indy than SD.

    Main Reason is the Travel Differential.  I think the Pats have a better chance of beating the Colts than the Bolts.  Secondly, even if we lose to the Colts, at least they will have a tougher road to the SB...

    TP -- I don't understand your thinking here.  For one thing, who says that a Colts victory over the winner of the Cincy/no. 5 seed game is a cakewalk?  I doubt very much that's an easy win for the Colts, who have gotten by on smoke and mirrors for a number of their wins this year.  Second, who says we get by the Chargers if/when we play them in the divisional round?  The Chargers look pretty good and we might get smoked.  Then they go into Indy and do what they do best, which is beat them.  You're assuming a whole lot that I don't think you can bank on at all.

    TP - with all due respect, the colts played and beat the 13-3 Ravens (who btw beat SD) with #1 ranked D in pts and yds in Baltimore.   

    But, I totally agree with you re: SD's receivers.  They are big, fast, and have good hands.  To make matters worse, Rivers throws were very accurate.

    UD

    That game was week 4 in that season. Marty ran the ball 16 straight times to close out the game and it bit him in the end when Todd Heap caught a 10yard pass in the seconds. BAL won 13-10.

    Your Colts are going down!

    It makes me wonder just exactly who is determining the boundaries of good taste here at BDC when a thread about Christmas wishes is deleted and gay porn is (apparently) perfectly acceptable.

    Both the Giants & the Dolphins both quit on their seasons today. As for the Giant game, the announcers called it the worst tackling by a team they saw all year. Both teams are out of the playoffs.

    Re: NFL Power Ratings in the Home Stretch

    I wonder who Pats really are? The two biggest trolls on this board for years are bolt and doggg and no they don't talk good football they despise all things New England. These two deserve all the negative posts and threads that real Pats fans throw at them. And to Pats fans say "Oh way does that post stay and that post go"
    just shows that you empathy for enemy.
