It just makes sense!

Week 15 Power Rankings

32 (32). Detroit Lions (0-14)…Well they tied the record for futility and now go for infamy.

31 (31). St. Louis Rams (2-12)…Marc Bulger probably won’t return as the starter and it may be a while before we see the “greatest show on turf” again.

30 (29). Oakland Raiders (3-11)…Tom Cable is upset that Lane Kiffin is raiding the staff. He should worry more about finding his own job next year.

29 (27). Kansas City Chiefs (2-12)…The Chiefs somehow found a way to lose this game and in the process sealed the fate of the staff.

28 (26). Cleveland Browns (4-10)…This is a team in distress and most likely will have an overhauling in the off season. Lets hope they are still bad because it is more fun that way.

27 (30). Cincinnati Bengals (2-11-1)…Not sure if they were more impressive in the win or the Redskins more disappointing in the loss.

26 (28). Seattle Seahawks (3-11)…Mike Holmgren is retiring after the season and we feel for the coach who has to come into this mess.

25 (25). Jacksonville Jaguars (4-10)…The are probably better than the teams behind them but not by much.

24 (24). Green Bay Packers (5-9)…Its hard to believe they started out 3-0.

23 (23). Buffalo Bills (6-8)…Can this team find more creative ways to lose, Jauron is a snake for signing his extension after the game and hopefully Wilson will fire him anyways.

22 (20). Washington Redskins (7-7)…Like the Bills and Packers, they started hot and have faultered, but we believe Snyder will stick with Zorn.

21 (21). San Francisco 49ers (5-9)…The team believes in Singletary…does the ownership?

20 (16). Washington Redskins (7-6)…Dissension once again for Snyder’s club. McGahee, Portis, what is it about UM RBs that always have to complain?

19 (17). Denver Broncos (8-6)…Not sure about this team, but everyone wants to play them in the first round.

18 (9). New Orleans Saints (8-6)…We admit they were too high in our rankings. Many believe that Thomas is better than Bush.

17 (18). Chicago Bears (8-6)…The Bears have the outside shot at the playoffs and will most likely be emliminated this week even though they play the Packers.

16 (19). Houston Texans (7-7)…They could be the trendy pick next year and we think they are on the right track, Schaub to Johnson could be a dynamic combo for years to come.

15 (8). Arizona Cardinals (8-6)…Been faultering a bit lately and if they can’t figure out how to win on the road it will be a short post season.

14 (16). Philadelphia Eagles (8-5-1)…After all the talk about the tie, it may be the thing that gets them into the playoffs.

13 (12). NY Jets (9-5)…Keeping pace, the Jets lucked out this week and didn’t look as good as we thought.

12 (14). New England Patriots (9-5)…They may have the easiest road to the playoffs, but Miami and the Jets won’t quit.

11 (13). Miami Dolphins (9-5)…Their wins are not impressive but they are wins and that is all that matters.

10 (15). Dallas Cowboys (9-5)…The Cowboys are playing well again and that is nt good news for the Giants.

9 (7). Tampa Bay Buccaneers (9-5)…What an amazing division and too bad someone will miss out on the playoffs…our bet is the Bucs.

8 (11). Minnesota Vikings (9-5)…They are the hot team right now, but recieved bad news that Pat Williams is out at least until the playoffs.

7 (6). Baltimore Ravens (9-5)…What a fight the Ravens put up against the best defense in football. Although they came out on the short end of a controversial play they remain in the hunt.

6 (10). Atlanta Falcons (9-5)…By land or by air this team can do it all…and with a rookie QB and first year starting RB.

5 (3). NY Giants (11-3)…It is naive to think they wouldn’t miss Plax and with Jacobs hurt, this team isn’t the same.

4 (1). Tennessee Titans (12-2)…The Texans are good, but they should have won this game.

3 (5). Carolina Panthers (11-3)…This team is for real and has enough to win it all.

2 (4). Indianapolis Colts (10-4)…the Colts are the hot AFC team and Manning is most likely the MVP after bringing them back…look out!

1 (2). Pittsburgh Steelers (11-3)…The formula is there: stifling defense, accurate smart QB, power running game and smart coaching.

Week 14 Power Rankings

32 (32). Detroit Lions (0-13)…We can hear it now “with the first selection in the 2009 NFL draft, the Detroit Lions select (enter name of bust here).

31 (31). St. Louis Rams (2-11)…Marc Bulger seems to have lost his touch and the Rams may go in another direction next year.

30 (30). Cincinnati Bengals (1-11-1)…T.J. Houshmanzadeh said that he or Chad Johnson will not be with the team next year…What are the odds he prays every night for it to be him?

29 (29). Oakland Raiders (3-10)…Jamarcus Russell is slowly becoming a, you know the B-word, no not Bitch (well maybe…), bust.

28 (28). Seattle Seahawks (2-11)…What an effort Deion Branch put forth against his old team. Now if only all the Seahawks were former Patriots.

27 (27). Kansas City Chiefs (2-11)…Tyler Thigpen has had a good year considering the talent level, but we think they will still bring in someone to challenge him and Croyle next year.

26 (26). Cleveland Browns (4-9)…The Browns are giving Josh Cribbs reps at QB and reports are that Crennel will be fired next year. This was a difficult year for the dog pound.

25 (24). Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9)…And the award for the most disappointing team goes to…well the San Diego Chargers, but these guys are second.

24 (23). Green Bay Packers (5-8)…This team started hot and has since cooled (wow that was cliche).

23 (21). Buffalo Bills (6-7)…I can’t do it.

22 (22). San Diego Chargers (5-8)…Right now they would beat the Bills.

21 (24). San Francisco 49ers (5-8)…Mike Singletary is doing a commendable job and should be rewarded with an extension…now can they find their QB?

20 (16). Washington Redskins (7-6)…Dissension once again for Snyder’s club. McGahee, Portis, what is it about UM RBs that always have to complain?

19 (20). Houston Texans (6-7)…This team is a completely different club with Matt Schaub running the show.

18 (18). Chicago Bears (7-6)…No identity + inconsistency = NO PLAYOFFS!

17 (17). Denver Broncos (8-5)…This team will win the division by default, but we have no confidence in them.

16 (19). Philadelphia Eagles (7-5-1)…Knocked off the Giants and Cardinals in consecutive weeks and all of the sudden look like a threat again. Will it be too little too late?

15 (9). Dallas Cowboys (8-5)…Barber is hurt and his toughness is being questioned, T.O. is deceptively quiet and Wade Philips is shitting himself on the sidelines every week.

14 (15). New England Patriots (8-5)…They have the easiest road left and two of their division mates will be disappointed when they miss out on the playoffs.

13 (14). Miami Dolphins (8-5)…Somehow they are scraping out victories, but even if they win out it may not be enough.

12 (7). NY Jets (8-5)…They are falling off the wagon, though they still control their own destiny. Favre better get his team under control or they risk losing a great opportunity.

11 (13). Minnesota Vikings (6-6)…The Vikes are slowly pulling away with the division. We still think they need Frerrotte to do anything in the post season.

10 (8). Atlanta Falcons (8-5)…It was a tough fought loss and they looked good despite giving up a lot of points. They need to win the rest to have a shot.

9 (12). New Orleans Saints (7-6)…The Saints are looking dangerous again and could make some noise if it wasn’t for the fact that they are in such a juggernaut division.

8 (11). Arizona Cardinals (8-5)…They clinched their division and get a home game in the playoffs. Hopefully they won’t screw this up.

7 (5). Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-5)…Didn’t look so good in giving up a ton of yards to the Panthers, but they are still a team no one wants to face.

6 (10). Baltimore Ravens (9-4)…They are constantly proving us wrong and look poised to make a run. Could Flacco be the next Roethlisberger?

5 (6). Carolina Panthers (10-3)…They looked dominating against the Bucs and Fox has his boys playing extremely well.

4 (4). Indianapolis Colts (9-4)…This team is impressive after starting slow. We think they will go all the way.

3 (1). NY Giants (11-2)…Looked sloppy in the loss to the Eagles. They need to get healthy and passed the distractions fast.

2 (2). Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3)…Great team that has impressed all the way. Can they keep up the momentum?

1 (3). Tennessee Titans (12-1)…They are back in the top spot (probably where they belong) and people are still overlooking this team.

Week 12: The Good, The Lions and the Ugly

The Good We believe this was the week that the city of East Rutherford, New Jersey separated itself from the rest of the NFL. The Giants in the NFC and the Jets in the AFC have ascended to the leagues elite and coincidentally play in the same stadium. What Favre has done with the Jets was unexpected even for #4. He took a team that has been owned by some of the better teams in the league and built a healthy confidence that has them beating the elite of the league. On the defensive side, you could argue right now that DT Kris Jenkins is the defensive MVP of the league to this point. Bot these teams are going to be something to reckon with (especially the Giants who I do not see losing again the rest of the year).

The only true NY football team!

The Lions The guys up in Detroit were severely teased this weak when the Lions went up 17-0 on the Bucs, only to blow the lead and proceed to get blown out the rest of the way. This is a very bad team and the more everyone says that they will win a game by the end of the year the more I believe they won’t.

In an effort to promote a winning program the Lions have made these Cowboys there preaseason Game 1 opponents.

The Ugly The situation in Philly is getting to a point where we believe it may spell the end of a decade long era in The City of Brotherly Abuse. Andy Reid and Donovn McNabb have had numerous winning seasons, three straight NFC championship births and a Super Bowl appearance, but in the “what-have-you-done-lately” NFL it is all for naught when you start losing. Losing is actually one thing, but the Eagles are self destructing and making a mockery of the organization. After the rule not heard round the world last week, they did not even bother to show up this week and McNabb was subsequently benched in the middle of the game for the even more inept Kevin Kolb. Mcnabb will most likely be leading another team next year, but we think Reid will be out of football for a few years after this disaster. Its too bad because they both have done a lot for football.

This Eagle has a better chance at starting at QB next year.
