    power rankings won't get you a better seeeding in the playoffs. Remember somebody in the AFC north will win the division with either a 9-7 or 8-8 record and make the playoffs and they won't have a high power ranking so should that mean take them lightly? I don't think so. The power ranking i care about is the one that comes right after the super bowl.
    You're right, but I bet you'd think a little different if the Broncos were #1.

      I don't know. Rankings don't matter if you don't win the Superbowl. You at least have to win the AFC Conference. We've done that a few times and that has been nice. Superbowl is the best though.

      How you do in the playoffs is a real test of how good your team is. That is where the "real teams" put forth their best effort. Unfortunately we have not been there for some time...

        look at the history of the afc in the last ten years.
        93 #1 seed buffalo-lost to dallas in SB
        94 #1 seed pitsburgh-lost afc championship to SD
        95 #1 seed Kansas City-lost divisional playoff to colts
        96 #1 seed Denver- lost jacksonville in divisional playoffs
        97 #1 seed Kansas city-lost divisional playoffs to denver
        98 #1 seed Denver- won super bowl
        99 #1 seed Jacksonville-lost Afc championship to Tenn
        00 #1 seed Tennesse- lost to baltimore in divisional playoff
        01 #1 seed Pittburgh- lost to NE in AFC championship game.
        02 #1 seed oakland- lost super bowl to TB

        All these teams were probably in the top three in power rankings only one won a super bowl,three made it to the super bowl another three made it to the AFC championship and the rest lost in their first playoff game. that's why i don't believe in power rankings or seeding because history shows that what you are in the season doesn't mean sqwat in the playoffs. so no even if denver was #1 in the power rankings it wouldn't mean anything unless they win the super bowl.

          I can't speak for anyone else but, yeah, I would enjoy having the Broncos listed #1 in the power rankings. Who doesn't like to see their team acclaimed on a national basis? But even then I take it with a grain of salt.

            I think it was 1986 the Browns won the Central division with an 8-8 record and then they went down to Miami and beat them on their home turf.

And yes...I'm in agreement that power rankings are worthless...but your stats about #1 seeds historically not doing well...are just as worthless...which it looks like you agree with.
              Here we go again. Did i do something to you or do you just look for my post and just want to argue. I put up those stats to prove in the AFC the history has not been good for the favorites or the no 1 seed. denver was the last team to go to a superbowl after being 9-0. eventually they went 13-0 before losing to the giants. that was five years ago. On the NFC side if you remember wasn't minnesota 15-1 in 98 and they lost to atlanta in the nfc championship. Back in a day the team with homefield usually went to the super bowl that's not automatic nowadays. you want to argue and say that teams with a 10-1 record have a better chance of advancing in the playoffs, I say 10 -15 years ago that was automatic nowadays even wild cards have just as much a chance of making the super bowl as the no 1 seed. My arguement was with chiefsmeng stating if the broncos were no 1 in the power rankings I would think different. my point was that history has shown that the favorites don't have history of going all the way especially in the AFC that's why I don't believe in them. even if the broncos were rated no 1 I wouldn't go by that ranking. That's my reasoning for bringing up the ten year stat on No.1 seeds. Please don't make it more than what is.
