Dr. Z is sick of Jeremy Shockey whining to the media. Who isn't? The good doc also points out the similarities between last week's Patriots-Steelers game and the one that broke the New England winning streak in 2004, and he's a big fan of the New England defensive line. Also feel free to discuss his latest power rankings. Doing these myself this year, I realize how silly it is to base things on win-loss records this early in the year. I mean, really, does Dr. Z think Washington is a better team than San Diego? No, of course not. Now I don't think that Cincinnati is a better team than New England, either, but at least I can blame a heartless statistical formula that doesn't have enough evidence to work correctly yet. Dr. Z's ratings are purely subjective.
