Hey I got the top 7 pegged. :-D

I'm the highest on Tampa it looks like, I'll explain why they are 8 for me:

Tampa's defense is great and they would have won last week had Garcia not had a couple bad fumbles. Garcia is getting it done man he's playing better then I ever would have expected him to, no interceptions and plenty of big plays. I thought his success with the Eagles in the latter part of last year was the supporting cast around him but this Tampa team in my opinion is a slight downgrade in offensive talent and yet he's still finding the open man and making great plays. If Tampa keeps it up I see them winning the NFC South. Only real worry I see right now is running back but so far they've been filling the void on the most part. ;-D

The Barometer is an average of the rankings submitted by these members. To maintain consistency, the high and low scores have been removed.


Huh? What about only removing a score if its say 10 points higher or lower than any other ranker's score? :-?

Top 10 looks right on. After that, it gets wonky. :) Detroit is the biggest pretender to the crown, ever. :)

Hm just noticed Baltimore and Detroit are both 11th. They are tied with a 12.9 average rank, who wins the tiebreaker? :-b

Actually, that happens fairly often. It's just been left a tie in the past.

That's the way it was the whole time last season and has been this season since week 2 I think. It's a fairly common way to do averages to decrease variances in one person's rankings.
