Sports nonsense is the nonsensiest nonsense of all. (Quotent Quotables)

Said Bill Barnwell today on his Grantland column ranking the top 8 teams of the NFL right now (but really the top 12 or so because some are "just outside the top 8"):

I think Green Bay is better than they've seemed so far because they've played a pretty tough schedule; their six opponents are a combined 17-10 in games that haven't involved the Packers. 

Which is to say:  "Green Bay is better than they've seemed, although they are not yet good enough to beat the teams that are every bit as good as they seem."  Which means that Green Bay probably shouldn't be 8th on the list of top 8 teams; the Packers, by Barnwell's estimate, are not good enough to rank up there with teams that go 17-10 (away from the Packers) and 20-13 (when including the Packers), i.e., the Packers aren't quite as good as those teams that win 60% of the time, i.e., the Packers don't quite win 60% of the time, i.e., the Packers' 3-3 record is just right.
