Unofficial Official Weekly Rankings - Famous Quotes Edition

As most of you know, ChiefsFan85, along with help from a few other of your Arrowhead Pride brethren, was doing a weekly NFL Rankings post. He's had real life intervene (curse the rotten luck!) and so I've taken it upon myself to do weekly rankings on my own.

Granted Joel does SB Nation rankings, but I like to add a bit of a twist, and so this week's episode will see the rankings and of course, the usual comments, except that the comments THIS week will be a bit UN-usual ... so, let's JUMP right to it, shall we?

1 Green Bay Packers - Champions keep playing until they get it right. Billie Jean King

2 Baltimore Ravens - Bobby Knight told me this: 'There is nothing that a good defense cannot beat a better offense.' In other words a good offense wins. Dan Quayle

7 Houston Texans - One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it. Knute Rockne
