16th eh?....that reminds me of the phrase 'Mediocrity is only Failure'. So will we finish at 8-8, or 9-7?

Here comes this weeks round of Power Rankings as they are updated by their respective outlets.

Sports Illustrated (Dr. Z)
#15 Atlanta - Monday night superstar announcers were locked in a serious discussion about world affairs, or horticulture or something when Michael Vick took a big hit from the Saints' Ronald McKinnon, doubled over in pain, and barely dragged himself off the field. "Wake up, pretty babies, Mr. Sunshine is smiling," la la la. See that's what they have commercial breaks for, and two minutes to get yourselves together, and producers yelling in your headsets, "The guy's hurt , for God's sake!"
Noteworthy: NY 4th, Carolina 10th, Tampa 9th, Dallas 11th

ESPN (Pasq, Clayton, Smith, NFL Insiders, Scouts, and more!)
#15 Atlanta - Sounds like Michael Vick is going to be OK to play against the Bears this weekend. But if he's limited at all, he'll be in for a long night against a defense that will chase him all over the field.
Noteworthy: Carolina 7th, NY 6th, Tampa 5th, Dallas 13th

CBS Sportsline (Pete Prisco)
#14 Atlanta - They play what is essentially a playoff game Sunday night at Chicago. A loss could end their playoff chances.
Noteworthy: Carolina 11th, NY 5th, Tampa 7th, Dallas 12th

Crack Monkey Rankings (FOX Sports' Aaron Schatz)
#17 Atlanta - There's a ribbon in the willow and a tire swing rope / and a briar patch of berries takin' over the slope / the cat'll sleep in the mailbox and we'll never go to town / if the Bears bury our playoff dreams on the cold, cold ground / cold, cold ground. NEXT: at CHI

FOX has not been updated. On the average the Falcons are ranked 14th.

We are down to the final two weeks and with a pair of make it or break it games. Tampa has 1 wild card slot locked down. The final slot is a four way battle between Washington, Dallas, Atlanta, and Minnesota.

Sports Illustrated (Dr. Z)
#16 Atlanta - They're 6-3 indoors and 2-3 under God's wide blue sky. Saturday they're at Tampa Bay, an open-air facility. Which translates to 8-7 and goodbye.
Noteworthy: Tampa 12th, Dallas 15th, Minnesota 17th

ESPN (Pasq, Clayton, Smith, NFL Insiders, Scouts, and more!)
#15 Atlanta - Michael Vick certainly didn't look very comfortable in Chicago on Saturday night, did he?
Noteworthy: Tampa 11th, Washington 13th, Dallas 16th, Minnesota 17th

CBS Sportsline (Pete Prisco)
#16 Atlanta - You can't throw it, you can't win. It's that simple. Now their playoff hopes are in trouble.
Noteworthy: Tampa 11th, Washington 13th, Dallas 14th, Minnesota 15th

Crack Monkey Rankings (FOX Sports' Aaron Schatz)
#18 Atlanta - One of their biggest problems is coming back from a deficit late in games. The Atlanta offense ranks 18th when losing in the second half, and 27th when losing in the second half by more than a touchdown. The Falcons have not won a game all year in which they were losing at some point in the second half.
Noteworthy: Washington 8th, Minnesota 15th, Dallas 15th, Tampa 19th,

The Falcons are ranked 12th (-2).
