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 13: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good

The Pittsburgh Steelers took a huge step towards separation in the AFC. They went into Foxboro and dismantled the once very hot Patriots. Roethlisberger is playing well while being hurt and the running game is thriving despite Fast Willie’s injuries, but the defense is unmistakeably awesome, not giving up more than 300 yards of offense to any team this year. The Dallas Cowboys seem to be heating up at the right time. Can Tony Romo keep it going into Dec. and Jan.? To this point he has not delivered when the thermostat goes down, but if the fans and the organization are patient, he will eventually bring the ‘Boys back to prominence.

They are winning and this pic is still hilarious.

The Bad

The Buffalo Bills started the year of winning five of their first six games and had people believing that they were for real. Once again the good people of western New York have been duped by an organization that is not committed to winning. They now sit at .500 and all playoff hopes are gone. We never want to wish ill on someone and hope Ralph Wilson has many more years of health and prosperity, but until the team is in someone else’s hands, they will not compete in this league. The Cleveland Browns had a positive year last year and people thought they might be  sexy pick this year to make some noise. All that has happened is the talent level proved to be less than mediocre and now the first two QB’s are done for the year putting journey man Ken Dorsey in the line of fire. Experts think that Romeo Crennel might be in danger of losing his job…we agree.

In Cleveland and Buffalo, the players will be at home this winter dealing with this...tell me again why free agents don't go to these cities?

The Ugly

The game between the Chiefs and the Raiders was pretty much the worst matchup of the year to this point. Both teams have light years of rebuilding to do and neither is remotely close to winning week in and week out. These are storied AFC organizations and it is a shame to see them as bottom dwellers every year. Hopefully the organizations will make some positive changes soon, because after all they aren’t that much better than the Lions right?

Week 11: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good

Once again the Tennessee Titans proved all their naysayers wrong by defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars and just about clinching their division. The Defense has been stingy and the offense is, believe it or not, getting better and mor efficient. The Indianapolis Colts are continuing their surge up the Wild Card ladder and Peyton Manning is returning to for. Tell us…would you want to play the Colts in January? We have to give the Lionesses a bit of due for their tough play against the Carolina Panthers. They did not get the win, but it looks like every week they will turn it up in an effort to not go winless this season.

The legendary Dolphins are getting concerned about their annual celebration being threatened again.

The Bad

The Oakland Raiders continue their assault on futility by losing in the final seconds to the Dolphins after Miami played a miserable game. Leading the league in penalties has not been good (as it has in the past) for the Raiders and one can only guess how many more coaches and players will ruin their careers in the Bay area. Tonight’s Monday Night Football game is not exactly a barn burner, but we feel they will hopefully entertain us. It could be an ugly game and we are not sure if many will be watching.

The Ugly

Accusations stirred this week in Pittsburgh as to the nature of the outcome of the Steelers-Chargers game this Sun. afternoon. In the final seconds in a feeble attempt to score the Chargers started tossing the ball around like a hot potato and finally bumbled int the arms of Troy Polamalu who ran it in for a score. The problem is the refs called it an illegal forward pass…which it clearly wasn’t, and took off from the scoreboard the touchdown…which it clearly was. Some are saying that in an effort to manipulate the spread the officiating crew decided on some improprieties at the wrong moment. If this even hints of foul the NFL could be in trouble and needs to nip it in the bud lightening fast before it gets out of control. Was it blatent? You be the judge.
