    Week 3 Power Rankings

    Fox Sports:
    #5 - Green Bay silenced its early-season critics on Sunday, coming from behind and beating San Diego 31-24 in Lambeau. Brett Favre's game-sealing fourth quarter 57-yard touchdown strike to Greg Jennings both put the game on ice and put Favre on top of the career touchdown list with Dan Marino at 420. The rally marked Favre's 38th career fourth-quarter comeback. If I were asked to vote on the 2007 MVP right now, I'd be hard-pressed to find anyone other than No. 4. He looks like the No. 4 of '96, the defense looks terrific, and the fans are in a frenzy. Breakout those foam Cheesehead hats. Green Bay is now 3-0 with a trip to 1-2 Minnesota on Sunday.

    CBS Sportsline:
    #5 - So who's the party crasher, trying to get behind the velvet ropes to join the VIP set? It's the Green Bay Packers, led by an old-man quarterback who plays the game with youthful enthusiasm and a defense keyed by a pair of corners who play in-your-face coverage.

    Packers quarterback Brett Favre and his quest for Dan Marino's touchdown record, which he should get this week, might be the highlighted story when it comes to this team, but it shouldn't be the only one.

    The offensive line, which started three rookies a year ago, has come together and become a top-notch unit. They kept Favre pretty clean against the San Diego Chargers in their upset victory.

    The defensive line, keyed by defensive ends Aaron Kampman and Cullen Jenkins, is a good group and the linebackers, with rising starA.J. Hawk, are active.

    In the secondary, Charles Woodson and Al Harris play a fun brand of corner, their ability to match up the reason the Packers can load up to stop the run. Safety Atari Bigby is a rising star.

    The Packers are fifth in the latest CBSSports.com Power Rankings. That victory over the Chargers validates them.

    It also gives me ammunition to fire back at all my co-workers -- you know who you are -- who laughed at me on our conference call last Friday for picking the Packers to win that game.

    Any and all apologies would be accepted.

    Peter King, CNN Sports Illustrated:
    #5 - How sweet it would be for Favre, sitting on 420 touchdown passes, to break Marino's record this week at Minnesota, with all the anti-Pack vitriol that's filled the Metrodome. For the record, Favre's 3-1 since 2003 in Minneapolis, but only 5-10 there in his career.

    -----------

    I will post more when I find them. The concensus is pretty much NE at 1, Indy at 2, Pittsburgh at 3, Dallas at 4, GB at 5. Can't really argue with any of that.

    Ok we'll rock your power rankings thread, and rightly so.


    ESPN: Link

    So they're naming us favorites at Minnesota, home vs. the Bears, and home vs. the Redskins. Who would have considered this possible before the season began (not the team doing so well, but the national media's opinion of it)?

    As long as the attention doesn't get to the players' heads. I don't think it will, though. They have to be hungry every week and we have to stay healthy.

    If we can establish the run our offense will be even better. We just won't do that this week against MN or the following week against Chicago. It's like we're playing all of the top run defenses in the first 5 weeks. Ouch. Guess we'll have to pass :)

    I'm really looking forward to that Monday Night game in Denver. I think that we definitely could be 6-0 by that game, but I won't be disappointed with 5-1 either.

    I agree... I hope that we don't have a repeat of the Milwaukee Brewers.

    i don't see that happening. There are football players who are in it for the 3 P's, as has been discussed before (party, paycheck, & pussy). THEN there are football players who are in it to play football, like Hawk, Harris, Woodson, Jenkins, KGB, Kampman, Pickett, Driver, & Jennings. These are the type of guys who don't get caught up in the hype. If there's one thing I'm not worried about, it's whether or not our team shows up ready to play.

    I've been thinking 16-0 Superbowl since long before this all began!

    Then again, I do EVERY Year.

    But I still root for them one game at a time!

    Good thing with most young teams is that they are hungry. No different with these guys.
