Jets Rate 8th in ESPN Power Rankings

via ESPN.com

8 (16) Jets 2-0-0 Rex Ryan has blitzed his way into first place in the AFC East. Division, beware. (Clayton)

This rating system is ridiculous. It factors in preconceived notions of how good teams will be before the season. If we're rating purely what's happened on the field, I find it tough to believe there are 7 teams that have looked better than the Jets. It's just the guy who compiled this list thought those teams would be better than the Jets back before the season started.

How crazy is it that media bias like this actually helps determine the champion in college football?
