not even ESPN's list will be this horrid...
ESPN's Power Rankings:
1 (5) Steelers 3-0-0 Who knew fourth-stringer Charlie Batch was the answer to Pittsburgh's QB woes? (Walker)
2 (1) Saints 2-1-0 NFC South has a legitimate rivalry now that Falcons have won at New Orleans. (Sando)
3 (4) Colts 2-1-0 In Denver, the Colts gave up a lot of yards, but they made defensive plays in red zone. (Kuharsky)
4 (2) Packers 2-1-0 It's hard to beat anyone when you're committing 18 penalties. (Walker)
5 (10) Falcons 2-1-0 Victory at New Orleans affirmed the good vibes resonating with this team. (Sando)
6 (12) Bears 3-0-0 Back-to-back wins over Dallas and Green Bay show the Bears are a force in the NFC. (Walker)
7 (6) Jets 2-1-0 For those judging QB development, Mark Sanchez has a slight lead over Chad Henne. (Clayton)
8 (8) Ravens 2-1-0 WR Anquan Boldin (three touchdowns in Week 3) showed why the Ravens acquired him. (Walker)
9 (3) Texans 2-1-0 The Texans' offense has to overcome defensive deficiencies. (Kuharsky)
10 (9) Patriots 2-1-0 With a defense giving up an average of 27.3 points a game, Bill Belichick isn't afraid to bench anyone. (Clayton)
11 (7) Dolphins 2-1-0 QB Chad Henne is pretty good. The difference between him and the Jets' Mark Sanchez isn't much. (Clayton)
12 (11) Bengals 2-1-0 The Bengals are winning with defense. But is it time to start worrying about QB Carson Palmer? (Walker)
13 (15) Titans 2-1-0 Michael Griffin and defense playing like it's 2008. (Kuharsky)
14 (16) Eagles 2-1-0 Now that Michael Vick is the new king of Philadelphia, do you think he'd let Donovan McNabb run some plays from the Wildcat for him? (Clayton)
15 (20) Chiefs 3-0-0 The Chiefs are deserving of the believers they gain each week. (Kuharsky)
16 (17) Cowboys 1-2-0 If you include the two losses and five preseason games, the Cowboys had the league's longest training camp. (Clayton)
17 (18) Vikings 1-2-0 Vikings go into the bye with a win but still plenty of concerns. (Walker)
18 (13) Chargers 1-2-0 AFC West dominance no longer a given. (Kuharsky)
19 (26) Seahawks 2-1-0 Seahawks seem calm and cool, just like their low-key coach. (Sando)
20 (21) Buccaneers 2-1-0 Victories over the Browns and Panthers will fade with Bengals, Saints next. (Sando)
21 (14) Redskins 1-2-0 The pressure is on Donovan McNabb and Mike Shanahan for Sunday's trip to Philadelphia. (Clayton)
22 (24) Cardinals 2-1-0 Schedule toughens up with San Diego, New Orleans in next two weeks. (Sando)
23 (22) Broncos 1-2-0 Offense needs to figure out the red zone after Indy debacle. (Kuharsky)
24 (19) Giants 1-2-0 With all the penalties and turnovers, the Giants appear to be a team in disarray.(Clayton)
25 (23) 49ers 0-3-0 Niners seem tight and wound up, just like their high-strung coach. (Sando)
26 (25) Jaguars 1-2-0 The Jags made strong bid for bottom slot with showing versus Eagles. (Kuharsky)
27 (31) Rams 1-2-0 Rams seeking first division win since 2007 when Seattle visits in Week 4. (Sando)
28 (27) Raiders 1-2-0 Field goal folly a breathtaking way to lose. (Kuharsky)
29 (28) Panthers 0-3-0 The Panthers are 0-2 at home already and have been outscored by 39 points overall. (Sando)
30 (30) Browns 0-3-0 The Browns have been in every game but have zero wins to show for it. (Walker)
31 (29) Lions 0-3-0 So much for the Lions being a sleeper in 2010. (Walker)
32 (32) Bills 0-3-0 Wonder if Trent Edwards will label Sept. 27 as Independence Day after being released after years of struggles. (Clayton)
What's weird is, unlike your ramshackle rankings, IlliniFan's rankings aren't off very much from ESPN's (especially if you look at all the teams in the top 10 - same teams in his and ESPN's, in a slightly different order).
You might notice, even the experts feel like Dallas is a shitty team.
