    Dr. Z's Power Rankings Week 1

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2007/writers/dr_z/09/12/power.ranks.part1/index.html

    Chicago #10

    Chicago Bears
    Chicago Bears (0-1)
    San Diego LB Matt Wilhelm on the instructions his position coach Ron Rivera gave about trash talking to Rex Grossman: "He told us that Rex was kind of a mental midget so you can get into his head and create that doubt." Careful, there's not much room.
    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

    mental midget hilarious!

    The best part?Thats Ron Riviera Speaking He was the Offensive Cordinator for the bears last season ROFL

    Vikings # 19

    Minnesota Vikings (1-0)
    Adrian Peterson's 103 yards rushing was a club record for a rookie in his first game. Broke D.J.Dozier's modest 57 yards in 1987. "The dream started when he was seven years old," said Nelson Peterson. I can just hear little Adrian now. "You know, I just dreamt that I broke D.J. Dozier's Minnesota Viking record of a modest 57 yards rushing for a rookie in his first game. What do you think of that?"

    Actually the Vikings are #18... not that his ranking really matters.

    We beat the Falcons, so that puts them at the bottom of the list.
    The Packers beat the Eagles so they go to #11.
    Titans are at #4, because they ran a bunch.

    I do agree with the Cleveland and the Indy pick though.

    Re: Dr. Z's Power Rankings Week 1

    I had to laugh at this quote too:

    Green Bay Packers (1-0)
    A touching ceremony is planned for Sunday's game in Giants Stadium. It will commemorate the last Green Bay trip there, when Brett Favre gracefully kissed the canvas, thereby awarding Michael Strahan his record of 22 1/2 sacks. A choir will be on hand and Strahan will present Favre a gift of vegetables from his very own garden. Radishes, I believe.

    This is probably the worst "professional" ranking list I have ever seen.

    Wasn't Ron Rivera the Defensive Coordinator in Chicago?

    Yeah, but he is gone now.

    I dug this little tid-bit up.

    Grossman said that he hasn't spoken to Rivera but speculated that perhaps Rivera was making the comments stemming from a back-and-forth Grossman had at the end of the 2006 season with Minnesota Vikings safety Darren Sharper.

    Center Olin Kreutz was a little less diplomatic.

    "I think Ron Rivera showed you right there why he's not here anymore," Kreutz said. "He's kind of a mean guy."

    Ron Rivera has no class to be saying those things about an ex-player of his...but that is to be expected from somebody who has worked in the Chicago organization for several years.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
