John Clayton is not impressed

In the recent ESPN Power Rankings, John Clayton dropped the New York Giants from spot #4 to #6, behind the Ravens, Colts, Jets (!!!!!), Vikings, and Saints. This wouldn't normally get me too upset, as the ESPN Power Rankings mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. However, I just can't believe what my eyes were seeing. What, holding a team to 0 points, 2.2 yards per pass, 0-9 3rd down efficiency, 4 total first downs (with none in the first half), 2.8 yards per carry, and 16:22 minutes of total offense just isn't enough to warrant recognition as one of the best 5 teams in the NFL? Sure, the Bucs aren't a great team. But just two weeks ago, the Bucs had 450 offensive yards against the Cowboys. The Detroit Lions, they are not. This juggernaut performance by the Gints is despite an injury list longer than almost any other team in the league. Combined with the fact that the Giants have an easy next few weeks along with the fact that several of their big injured players are already beginning to return, it would seem unthinkable to rank them behind the Vikings, who were one, let's face it, lucky play away from being 2-1, the Jets, who barely beat an 0-3 Titans team, and many of the other teams that Clayton ranked above them. I don't know what John Clayton did on Sunday, but one thing he obviously didn't do was watch the New York Giants dismantle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
