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.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
