Kenneth Arthur released his "Un-Power Rankings" this past weekend over on the SBNation.com mother ship and boy are you gonna be surprised where he's got the Saints.
In case you're unfamiliar, Un-Power Rankings are exactly what you'd expect: power rankings in reverse. They're bizarro rankings. In other words, the worst is first and vice versa. So where did Kenneth place our beloved Saints?
That's right, Mr. Arthur thinks the Saints are the 13th worst team in the NFL right now. And if that wasn't bad enough, he has the Panthers (14th), Buccaneers (22nd), and Falcons (28th) all ranked higher (with a lower number) than the Saints. Basically, the worst team in the NFL South. And that's actually up one spot from Arthur's previous Un-Power Rankings in March, so they're only getting worse.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Of course Arthur takes the easy route when explaining his reasoning:
The Saints still have one of the worst defenses in the league, and Rob Ryan's likely not going to change that.
Yeah, I suppose that's possible. Just as possible as Arthur's Seattle Seahawks being the best team in the league this season, which he also believes. Only time will tell.
