A weekly examination of the Packers' ESPN.com Power Ranking.
Preseason: 5 | Last week: 7 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
It took only one week -- and a convincing 38-20 win over the Washington Redskins -- to get the Packers right back where they started in the preseason Power Rankings. One thing the voters could not ignore, even in the Week 1 loss at San Francisco, was the fact that quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense have been explosive.

I suppose it's understandable, given the 1 - 1 record, etc.
No matter what they say, though, the poll is based on performance this season, NOT any subjective concept of who is the best team - which is what the term "power" would imply.
IMNHO, the Packers are the strongest i.e. most powerful. Of course, I'm biased, but I bet if a panel of unbiased observers voted, the Packers and Niners would each get 30%+, the Seahawks just under 30%. The Saints would be a lot higher, etc.

Can't complain about GB being 5th. Might be able to make a case for them over Houston but I would call them about a push based on the season so far. I don't agree with SF dropping 2 though. They lost to the current #1 and beat the current #5 where Denver may be 2-0 but they haven't played the same level of competition.

Nice to be ranked 5th. It will take 5 games or so before it really starts to mean a whole lot.

but i think the gap between us and SEA, DEN, and SF is pretty significant at this point.
Houston an GB are pretty close.
