Once again a crazy week. Teams are playing inconsistently, others are finding their identities, and there were upsets galore. The picks were 6-8 last week, which means lots of graph changes.

Wow! We’ve got a couple of zombie teams this week, a rare occurrence. Who knows what San Diego and Washington will turn into, although it seems San Diego is already historically bad on special teams. Last week’s rankings performed a little better at 9-5, although it felt more surprising than that. It’s a different league […]
Hello everyone! Very interesting week – last season this would have been seen as a lot of boring games, but I think we’re seeing some things shake out in terms of relative quality of teams, and there might be some surprises. The picks were 8-6 5-9 last week, which means there’s a fair amount of […]
The picks were 9-7 this last week. What’s good is that the picks are already seeming to make sense just in terms of eyeballing them. The only pick that looked off to me was picking Jacksonville over Philadelphia, but I think I might have also given pause by “that one team by that one body […]
Rank Team Notes Last Week EdgePower 1 (Beat TEN) A pretty damn good team for not having a starting quarterback. 3 60.71 (6 – 0) / 28 #1 – #27 2 (Beat CLE) Kansas City rockets up the rankings! Tied with the lead for only one other team, and Pittsburgh only gets the nod because […]
Things start to get mildly interesting after Week 2 – Kansas City has the longest beatpath, for one thing. We also already have a beatloop after Week 1. Week 2’s picks (which you can divine by checking the rankings) ended up 10-6, so the picks are overall 16-16 for the season.
Here are the power rankings after Week 1. Week 1 is always a tough choice for me in terms of what tiebreaker to use. Since we’re using only one week of games, I am usually tempted to refer to the previous season’s rankings a bit more. But since the intention is to use the same […]
This is always something of a rite of passage for this site, pasting the world’s stupidest graph – ladies and gentlemen, the graph as it existed after Week 1! Apologies for the abbreviated data – you can tell what picks there were by checking the previous week’s rankings – but the week’s pick record was […]
Hey everyone! Doing a bit of catchup here so the entire season doesn’t slip away from us. We’ll start out with the rankings for the beginning of the 2010 season. These are the same rankings that existed just after the Super Bowl of last season. “Last Week” refers to the rankings before the Super Bowl, […]
Thanks for the private notes. A symphony of events has conspired against me being at full capacity here in the early season. Sudden client work, recording studio dates, etc. In addition, I am moving several websites including beatpaths to a new and faster server. do my algebra homework Luckily, the week 1 beatpath graph is […]
