Buc Central’s POW-R’-ANKINGS WK 1

by Roland Johnson on September 15, 2009

Buc Central’s POW-R’-ANKINGS (power rankings) make their official debut. The power rankings are the product of a simple mathematical formula, using points for and points against. The rankings have predicted 10 of the last 19 Super Bowl winners. Further, 14 of the last 19 Super Bowl winners finished the regular season No. 1 or No. 2 in the POW-R’-ANKINGS system. Unlike with other, lesser rating systems, which are based on the authors opinion or some sort of biased towards a team they have a rooting interest in, no opinion is involved what so ever in formulating these rankings. None. Teams are ranked on a percentile scale, with 1.000 representing the NFL’s strongest team and 0.000 its weakest. If you don’t like where your perspective team is ranked, blame the evolution of mathematical science. (Key: WK1 = This week’s ranking. Based solely on stats from week one performances)

Quick Note: As the season progresses the rankings will stabilize and become much more accurate, as one weeks worth of data is usually not enough to gauge a teams true measure of sustainability or truthful measure within the rankings.

Looks like the Seahawks benefitted immensely from playing the Rams? Do you think the teams in the NFC West will skew the ranking all season from playing such a bad team twice?

Pretty crazy that our Bucs put up 450 yards of offense and 21 points and still lost by double digits. It’s a far cry from the Kiffin era.

Lee – It’s hard to say at this point, if the NFC West numbers will be skewed because of the Rams, typically after about four games thing will even out some.
