CBS Sports Week 15 NFL Power Rankings: I Have Given Up On Pete Prisco

You’ll recall last week that I had a. . .shall we say. . .minor freak out after Pete Prisco of CBS Sports decided that the way to reward the Minnesota Vikings for defeating the Buffalo Bills by 24 points was to drop them four spots in the Power Rankings, from number 23 to number 27.

So, if a 24-point victory gets the team a four-spot drop in the Power Rankings, then it only makes sense that going out against the New York Giants, losing by 18 points, and generally looking like crap on both sides of the ball merits. . .a two-spot rise? Yes, on the heels of their performance against New York, Pete Prisco has moved the Minnesota Vikings from number 27 in the Power Rankings up to number 25.

At least he sticks with the common theme.

They have to draft a quarterback in the spring. They don’t have an answer on the roster.

Much the same that CBS Sports apparently has to find someone to do their Power Rankings in 2011 that knows what in the blue hell he’s talking about.
