That is the cover of this week's SI. Check out the article here.

VY is also up for Rookie of the week again. Click here to vote for him.

Next we take our weekly tour of the various power rankings.  We start off this week with the computer rankings.  The Titans are currently 12th moving up one spot from last week.

Top 5:

1.  San Diego
2.  Chicago
3.  Baltimore
4.  Indy
5.  New England

How much longer can the Colts stay in the top 5 with that embarassing defense??

Next we look at ESPN.  The Titans are 14th moving up 2 spots from last week.  I can't understand how the Titans are 2 spots ahead of a Jets team they lost to but 1 spot behind an Eagles team that they spanked.

The top 5:

1.  San Diego
2.  Baltimore
3.  New Orleans
4.  Chicago
5.  Cincinnati

Quite a shake up from last week and it gives me much pleasure to see neither the Colts nor the Cowboys in the top 5.  I am also happy to see the Saints in the top 5.  They have a great story this year and have overcome so much from last year.  It is hard not to root for them.

Next we look at CBS Sportsline.  The Titans stayed at #19.  That is stupid.  What is also stupid is the Vikings jumped the Titans after a win over the Lions.  The Lions are worse than the Texans.

The top 5:

1.  San Diego
2.  Baltimore
3.  Chicago
4.  New Orleans
5.  Indy

Fox Sports is now my favorite power ranking because they have the Titans at #11 after being #15 last week.

Top 5:

1.  San Diego
2.  Baltimore
3.  Chicago
4.  Indy
5.  Cincinnati

They have the Saints at 6.  Having the Bengals ahead of the Saints is kinda stupid.  I guess comparing them is apples and oranges but I just don't see how you can justify it.

The Titans have an average of 14 in these rankings.  Last week the average was 15.75.  You can see that with every win this team is getting more respect nationally.  They will be a hot pick entering the 2007 season.

Don't forget to tune in this afternoon for VY week part 3.
