I'm just going to say it because I have a feeling it will be an issue
Especially if the Cowboys somehow win tonight.
If, by WEEK 7, you are under .500, then you are NOT A TOP 10 TEAM.
If you are over .500, you are NOT A BOTTOM 10 TEAM.
1-6 in week 7 = bottom 10 team. You'd need to win consecutive games 9 games to be 10-6. That's expecting a team to go from 15% wins to 100%. A 700% increase in winning percentage.
and since I don't want to create another topic:
Last years AFC West:
This years (so far):
Michael Floyd > Justin Blackmon

I disagree. A below average team could get a bunch of breaks and end up going 11-5. That doesn't mean they're truly a great team. Walt should continue to rank teams by talent level. It's possible he's under/overestimating certain teams' talent but going by record alone is no good either.
I didn't have the Cowboys in the top 10 last week?
I agree that record alone isn't enough to judge a team by, but eventually you have to see that maybe the Cowboys just aren't that good.
I don't move teams up or down. I just rank them from 1-32 based on how good I think they are.

But if you want analysis solely based on records, let me remind you what that would be like:
OMG THE NUMBER IN THE FIRST COLUMN OF TEAM X IS GREATER THAN THE NUMBER IN THE FIRST COLUMN OF TEAM Y SO TEAM X MUST BE THE BETTER TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT TEAM Z AND TEAM C HAVE THE SAME NUMBERS IN THE FIRST COLUMN AND SECOND COLUMN SO I DUNNO WHAT TO DO OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG.
