    Sorry I'm late.

    Re: The Final Word Power Poll - Week 8

    It's about time.
    You need to show up after the embarrasment and take out your frustrations.

    Here's a summary of the other idiot's try at the polls:

    [size=14pt]ESPN[/size]

    Bears (1)
    Trick: Illusion that they were what the Cardinals thought they were.

    Treat: That they're 7-0 and the rest of their opponents have a combined record of 30-34.

    Vikings (16)
    Trick: Bad year to be stuck in the same division as the Bears.

    Treat: Steve Hutchinson and Bryant McKinnie forming arguably the best left side of any line in the league.

    Packers (20)
    Trick: Four guys masquerading as defensive backs on the Packers' defense.

    Treat: Seeing Brett Favre running around, making plays and having fun again.

    Lions (30)
    Trick: Matt Millen. Enough said.

    Treat: Ernie Sims. Millen may have finally got one right on draft day.

    [size=14pt]CBS Sportsline[/size]

    Bears (1)
    The schedule is soft, but they don't leave any doubts. They crush their soft opposition. They don't get a real test until two weeks from now against the Giants.

    Vikings (13)
    Don't you get the feeling that this team's offense is limited? Brad Johnson looked old Monday night.

    Packers (21)
    Mike McCarthy is doing a good job with this young team. They Packers have won two consecutive games.

    Lions (31)They had their best Sunday of the season. They were off. Wonder if Matt Millen was out scouting college receivers?

    [size=14pt]Fox Sports[/size]

    Bears (1)
    If you were out for the first half of the 1 o'clock games on Sunday and just got to a TV in time for the halftime highlight shows on CBS and FOX — you saw some pretty standard stuff on the tickers scrolling below: New York beating Tampa Bay, the Bengals neck and neck with the Falcons, and the Ravens up on the Saints. And then you saw this: Chicago : 41, San Francisco : 0. Yes, 41-0. At the half. Chicago ’s officially ROLLING. Their quarterback situation is settled, their defense is looking like the Bears squad of ’85, and their special teams are arguably the best in the league. The only question lingering is over which current Bear will play the Richard Dent role in the “Super Bowl Shuffle” remix…which absolutely MUST be made.

    Vikings (18)
    The Patriots defense forced Vikings quarterback Brad Johnson into a myriad of uncharacteristic mistakes on Monday night. Johnson went 20-33, throwing for 185 yards and 3 interceptions before being replaced by Brooks Bollinger in the fourth quarter. The Vikings ground game was nonexistent as well. Chester Taylor — coming off a 169 yard day at Seattle — rushed for only 22 yards on 10 carries. The Vikings should be able to bounce back on Sunday. They play the perfect remedy for an NFL hangover — San Francisco.

    Packers (20)
    Who needs Adrian Peterson, anyway? The Packers running back duo of Vernand Morency and Ahman Green each rushed for more than 100 yards in Sunday’s convincing 31-14 win over Arizona. The Packers, Week 1’s 32nd ranked team in the Power Rankings, have steadily improved each week of the season—and have now cracked the big grid’s top twenty. I’m assuming this is the biggest, most important moment in Brett Favre’s storied career. Power Rankings, MSN, and all talk of grids aside, the Pack looked good Sunday and have the lowly Bills coming up this weekend. If they can get to the .500 mark, there’s absolutely no reason Green Bay fans shouldn’t be at least thinking about a possible playoff berth.

    Lions (30)
    Now that the Tigers' season is over, it’s time for Michigan sports fans to direct their attention on the Wolverines, Pistons, and Red Wings. What about the Lions? Ha Ha. Oh, you’re not kidding.

    Bears (1)
    Here's an interesting phenomenon. The keynote games played by the Colts and the Patriots have turned a spotlight on Chicago and its powder-puff schedule (they've faced no team that has fewer than three losses). But having watched the other good teams take their turn in the arena, the Bears' turn is coming. They're at the Giants on Nov. 12 and New England two weeks after that. Then we'll see, boy, we'll see. We'll see what? We'll see, just wait, we'll see. See what? WHAT! (Geez, talk about idiots.)

    Vikings (11)
    In Minneapolis they're showing films of the Patriots game as a new scenic attraction. It's called the Maul of America.

    Packers (20)
    An angry mob is forming, led by the Packers. How dare you put us below Oakland? I can see the e-mail from Packerland right now, words to the effect that my true Green Bay bias is coming out. "Go ahead," says one of them who managed to crawl in through the kitty door, "I defy you to say something nice about us." I'll say two nice things. Al Harris did a good job against the Cards' Anquan Boldin. And the Packers are the only team with exactly three wins.

    Lions (30)
    The bye week got them a one-spot raise over the plummeting Cardinals. This is like raising the minimum wage by a nickel.

    [size=14pt]About.com[/size]

    Bears (1)
    The Bears barely broke a sweat against the 49ers, and the competition doesn’t get any better with the Dolphins on tap. However, they pay for their cupcake schedule when they’re forced to visit New Jersey two weeks in a row.

    Vikings (14)
    The Vikings have scored just seven offensive touchdowns in seven games, and QB Brad Johnson is no longer doing what he does best… taking care of the football.

    Packers (22)
    With Buffalo on tap, the Packers suddenly find themselves with an opportunity to get back to .500. But don’t let that fool you. This team has a ways to go before they become playoff contenders.

    Lions (31)
    The Lions are hoping to get as many as five key players --Kenoy Kennedy, Alex Lewis, Teddy Lehman, Rex Tucker and Ross Verba-- back from injuries in time to face the Falcons on Sunday.

    Best at what?
    Not pass-blocking?
    Not moving anyone out of the way?
    McKinnie is a complete waste of carbon.

    Re: The Final Word Power Poll - Week 8

    After how we played on MNF, I wouldn't be suprised or angered if they had us 20&up. Seriously, it's been at least a year before I stopped watching the game with 10min to go in the 4th.
    Wait, if there's cat food in this bag............................
    I HAVE TO CHECK ON JOLLY!!!!
