    This power poll is the best one out there. That said, I think it could be improved. When teams that are tied have a head-to-head matchup, the winner should be placed ahead of the loser. The Steelers beat the Seahawks 21-0, so the Steelers should be ranked higher than the Seahawks. Yet, going on this method, they are tied, ignoring the game the teams played.
    I think you misunderstand the power of simplicity.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    The better the vikings do, does your staff get more quarters?

    The staff at TFWPP responds thusly:

    Trying to improve on the simplicity of the sorting metric is like trying to improve on the beauty that is the running of Purple Jesus - it cannot be done.

    The TFWPP staff shows no favorites.
    The metrics do not lie.

    So, no, they get only the usual allotment.
    However, management did buy a couple more wii controllers for them.
