I'm happy to "fly below the radar" for the rest of the season!!! We all know the damage we can do, when (if?) we make it to the post-season
Bungle Fans must be in heaven. Maybe that's why they are having trouble selling out their next game?

I actually agree with the ranking.... While our offense has been stellar, our overall production and ability to win games has been mediocre at best so far this season IMO.

Here's Florio's take... if anyone cares:
Week Five power rankings
Posted by Mike Florio on October 13, 2009 8:56 AM ET
1. New York Giants (5-0) (Last week: 1). The New York Sentinels would have given the Giants a better game.
2. Indianapolis Colts (5-0) (Last week: 2). We'd hate to see how badly the Colts would have beaten the Titans if Tennessee hadn't been desperate for a win.
3. Minnesota Vikings (5-0) (Last week: 3). Lost in the Lord Favre hoopla is the fact that the defense is giving up too many yards.
4. New Orleans Saints (4-0) (Last week: 4). The Superdome will be a rockin' when the Giants come a knockin'. (Yeah, I try to use it once every couple weeks. Because I truly am as cool as the other side of the pillow. And ridonkulous.)
5. Cincinnati Bengals (4-1) (Last week: 8). The Bengals haven't been this high since Chris Henry hid his stash in the team salad bar. Allegedly.
6. Chicago Bears (3-1) (Last week: 7). It's a good thing they got rid of Cedric Benson and Kyle Orton. Those guys really suck.
7. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) (Last week: 9). The Steelers could be the first team to win the Super Bowl and then promptly fire their offensive coordinator.
8. Denver Broncos (5-0) (Last week: 15). Those uniforms born in the days of black-and-white televisions apparently were designed by someone who was color blind.
9. Atlanta Falcons (3-1) (Last week: 10). After a sluggish loss to the Patriots and a bye week, everyone seemed to forget about the Falcons. We won't be forgetting about them moving forward.
10. Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) (Last week: 14). After years of Philly fans begging for a veteran receiver not named T.O., the Eagles found two pretty good ones in back-to-back drafts.
11. New England Patriots (3-2) (Last week: 5). We've got a feeling the Patriots will get another crack at the Broncos. The question is whether they really want one.
12. Baltimore Ravens (3-2) (Last week: 6). With a trip to Minnesota on tap, the Ravens could be staring at a 3-3 record at the bye.
13. New York Jets (3-2) (Last week: 11). If the Jets lose to Buffalo, Rex Ryan might explode like Mr. Creosote.
14. San Diego Chargers (2-2) (Last week: 13). Best evidence that the Chargers are mired in a boring season? Last week's back-and-forth between A.J. Smith and Shawne Merriman was theor most exciting moment of the year.
15. San Francisco 49ers (3-2) (Last week: 12). Has there ever been an NFL coach who looks like a genius when his team is winning, and a moron when they're losing?
16. Dallas Cowboys (3-2) (Last week: 16). The 3-2 record suggests "above average." The performance on the field suggests "below average."
17. Green Bay Packers (2-2) (Last week: 17). Mark Tauscher is back. When does Tony Mandarich sign?
18. Miami Dolphins (2-3) (Last week: 20). Like Fragile Frankie Merman, the Dolphins dug a deep hole in the park. But they're not sitting in it -- they're climbing out.
19. Seattle Seahawks (2-3) (Last week: 25). After Owen Schmitt pulled off the old WWF bloody forehead trick, Rex Ryan a/k/a Captain Lou Albano immediately opened trade talks.
20. Arizona Cardinals (2-3) (Last week: 22). In any other division, the Cardinals would have no chance. In the NFC West, they're very much alive.
21. Houston Texans (2-3) (Last week: 19). They showed character by coming back in the second half, but it's still a loss and the window is closing on Gary Kubiak's knuckles.
22. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-3) (Last week: 18). Mike Sims-Walker didn't play after violating the team itinerary. The Seahawks then violated the team in a very different way.
23. Carolina Panthers (1-3) (Last week: 26). John Fox says he hasn't told friends he expects to get fired. Maybe the truth is that friends have told him to expect to be fired.
24. Washington Redskins (2-3) (Last week: 21). Cornerback Carlos Rogers points a finger at owner Daniel Snyder as Vinny Cerrato whispers to the boss, "He's saying, 'We're number one!'"
25. Tennessee Titans (0-5) (Last week: 24). At least they're still the best 0-5 team in league history.
26. Detroit Lions (1-4) (Last week: 27). You know it's a bad year for the bad teams in the NFL when six of them are worse than the Lions.
27. Cleveland Browns (1-4) (Last week: 31). That "win" should still count as a loss.
28. Buffalo Bills (1-4) (Last week: 23). Their game in Toronto might have half the crowd of a UFL game.
29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5) (Last week: 29). 0-16 isn't as far fetched as it seems.
30. Oakland Raiders (1-4) (Last week: 28). Napa prosecutors will soon drop all charges against Tom Cable under the reasoning that his job is punishment enough.
31. Kansas City Chiefs (0-5) (Last week: 30). They're 2-28 in their last 30 games.
32. St. Louis Rams (0-5) (Last week: 32). With loss No. 16 possibly coming at Jacksonville on Sunday, St. Louis will complete the "Ram Slam."
