NFL Power Rankings: Week 4
http://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/the7...te-after-week-4

NFL.com and CBS have the Eagles at #3. How do you do that when a team has beaten opponents with a total of 2 wins!?

NFL.com has the Skins at #9--seems a little high-- and the Boys at #19--seems low to me.

I think around #8#10 would be reasonable for the Eagles although I don't really think they are that good right now. If they are still healthy after Cox and Darby return, and their rookie kicker still has his head on straight, they might be a Top 10 team, especially if they win the next two home games--Cards and Skins.

This team is not the #3 team. I have no idea what they are basing that on. A case could be made for #10 but I am not sold yet.

I put the Skins at about the same level as the Eagles so far. Yes, the Eagles won in week 1 but I think the Skins have played closer to their talent level since then. I am really looking forward to round 2.

I assume they are basing it on our record in addition to the performance of the rest of the league (thus far). The normal standouts have performed underwhelmingly (ie NE) so there is room for teams that have performed. Based on performance #3,4,5 should be interchangeable.
