    For a refresher on how the RPI numbers are determined, see here. The questions were determined by NeuroticTruth


    1.[​IMG] San Francisco 49ers 4-1 (.704) - Who's bright idea was it to give Coug the 49ers?

    2.[​IMG] Green Bay Packers 4-1 (.689) - Another newcomer making a splash in HK. Can the Pack overcome the loss of Jacquizz Rodgers?
    3.[​IMG] New York Jets 4-1 (.592) - Sanchez or Tebow? Who cares, this team continues to win regardless.
    4.[​IMG] New York Giants 5-0 (.575) - Sitting at 5-0 and playing outstanding football, is this team destined to repeat?
    5.[​IMG] Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-1 (.565) - A balanced offense and outstanding game management from Freeman has this team 3-1. Can Coach BG continue to shine with this young team down the stretch?
    6.[​IMG] Minnesota Vikings 4-1 (.562) - AP looks great coming off the injury, but can Ponder really carry this team to the post season?
    7.[​IMG] Atlanta Falcons 5-0 (.559) - 5-0, are you serious? Someone please beat this guy (and break Matt Ryans knee while you're at it).
    8.[​IMG] Cleveland Browns 3-2 (.549) - Despite a 3-2 record against a very tough 1st quarter schedule, is Weeden really the answer at quarterback?
    9.[​IMG] New Orleans Saints 4-1 (.544) - How long can this team survive playing absolutely no defense?
    10.[​IMG] Chicago Bears 4-1 (.538) - Is Thirdalarm quietly crowding his way into the HK Newcomer of the Year award?
    11.[​IMG] Miami Dolphins 3-2 (.535) - 0-2 after a 3-0 start, how soon before the Miami faithful start calling for their 3rd coaching change of the season?
    12.[​IMG] Denver Broncos 3-2 (.525) - The early frontrunner in the AFC West, how will Manning handle the workload down the stretch?
    13.[​IMG] Cincinnati Bengals 3-2 (.525) - Who needs Cedric Benson when you have the Law Firm?
    14.[​IMG] Carolina Panthers 0-5 (.520) - 0-5 with arguably the hardest first quarter schedule in the league. Does this team stand a chance the rest of the way without Cam?
    15.[​IMG] Buffalo Bills 2-3 (.518) - How good would this team be if they actually had a decent quarterback?
    16.[​IMG] Washington Redskins 2-3 (.518) - How badly do the Redskins hate the NFC South right now (0-3 against NFC South teams)?
    17.[​IMG] Seattle Seahawks 4-1 (.514) - Am I the only one who cant wait to see what happens when the Seahawks finally clash with the 49ers?
    18.[​IMG] New England Patriots 3-2 (.512) - Three wins by a combined nine points, with plenty of flare for dramatics along the way. How badly does Coach Reb want this team to proverbial Jets of HK?
    19.[​IMG] Houston Texans 2-3 (.497) - Are the Texans the dark horse to win the AFC South?
    20.[​IMG] Dallas Cowboys 0-4 (.496) - Who would have thought that this team would be 0-4?
    21.[​IMG] Indianapolis Colts 1-3 (.488) - Last year they "sucked for Luck". How long until that strategy pays off?
    22.[​IMG] Tennessee Titans 2-3 (.488) - Last year it was his contract, whats the excuse this year for CJ2Ks inept play?
    23.[​IMG] Detroit Lions 1-3 (.471) - How long until Stafford's on the block? Apparently 4 games.
    24.[​IMG] San Diego Chargers 2-3 (.465) - New coach, same Charger's late game meltdowns. Will things ever change in San Diego?
    25.[​IMG] Jacksonville Jaguars 1-4 (.451) - Jacksonville has lost all 4 games by a combined 13 points. Will they ever stop shooting themselves in the foot at the end of ball games?
    26.[​IMG] Arizona Cardinals 2-3 (.437) - At 2-3 they're not completely out of it; but it begs the question, when do they pull the plug in hopes of drafting a franchise QB?
    27.[​IMG] St. Louis Rams 1-4 (.434) - Plagued by injuries and an incosistent Sam Bradford, does the landscape ever change in St. Louis?
    28.[​IMG] Oakland Raiders 1-3 (.402) - With Run DMC averaging under 50 YPG, is this team regretting letting Michael Bush go?
    29.[​IMG] Baltimore Ravens 2-3 (.401) - With the defense giving up an average of 28 points a game, how evident has it become that Ray Lewis and Co. are way past their prime?
    30.[​IMG] Philadelphia Eagles 1-4 (.401) - How badly is DeSean Jackson regretting his decision to sign that contract extension?
    31.[​IMG] Pittsburgh Steelers 1-3 (.391) - Amid rumors of tanking to go along with his 1-3 start, is Coach Noles wishing he would have stayed put in Houston?
    32.[​IMG] Kansas City Chiefs 0-5 (.379) - How many more losses before their stadium starts looking like this during home games?

    I need another explanation of how this shit works. How are 2 winless teams above some teams with wins? Just curious.
