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 15: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good

The Pittsburgh Steelers may have gotten away with one, but nonetheless they were playing a good team on the road and left with a victory, control of their division and possibly the conference. Big Ben manages better than any QB and makes few mistakes, while the defense is just awesome. Troy Polomolu, James Harrison and the gang stymie most teams and play as wild and aggressive as Troy’s hair. The Cowboys look like they are back and may be scaring some teams as they ride into January. There are times that I believe that maybe all the negativity is just good P.R. work and the agenda is to keep the focus on them while they get better and better.

Steelers fans have become a huge (giggle) reason for their teams success.

The Bad

Its hard to believe that the St. Louis Rams, only a short eight years ago, were called “the greatest show on turf” as they dominated the NFL with their high flying offense and super fast defense. Now they have fallen to a place where even the worst teams are beating them and it may be a matter of time before a complete house cleaning and over hauling takes place. Other than the Lions no team seems further from being good than the Rams and it we may see guys like Bulger, Holt and Jackson playing in different colors come 2009.

There are still reliable Rams in St. Louis.

The Ugly

Once again we have the Buffalo Bills that found a way to lose in the most horrific of circumstances for fans. Winning by three with just over two minutes to play, the coaching braintrust decided that it would be a good thing to have a turnover prone QB roll out (after already throwing two INTs and fumbling twice) and try and throw a pass with only five yards to a first down and another first down to clinch the game. The result: LOSERman fumbled and the Jets defense pranced into the endzone stealing the game. What is most unfortunate is that the Bills had already rushed for 187 yards (the most the Jets gave up all year) and failed to capitalize on this. Jauron is an idiot and no matter how much it costs Ralph Wilson needs to suck up his mistake and pay for it.

Oh what a sad day...Is it okay if I cry now?

Week 14: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good

The Arizona Cardinals have clinched the NFC West and will play their first playoff game at home. What an accomplishment for the one time laughing stock franchise who were the doormats in the East for years. Granted the west may be the worst division in football, but nonetheless the Cards put up some monstrous points and with the resurgent Kurt Warner at the helm anything is possible. The Tennessee Titans also clinched their division and with Giants losing, once again have reclaimed the best record in football.

Matt Leinart is seen here doing his part for the team.

The Bad

My fantasy team in the idiot league was too good that I never played the right players due to all of them being great. What do you do with Reggie Bush, Marshawn Lynch, Ronnie Brown, Steve Slaton and Thomas Jones? Sometimes it pays to be average as I learned that even playing against a bunch of retards it is possible to lose and I did.

This is what I am losing to in fantasy football despite having a stacked team.

The Ugly

The Buffalo Bills were once being lauded as “a sure thing to make the playoffs and “the real deal”. Oh how far the mighty have fallen. The Bills started the season 5-1 and have now dropped the last six out of seven games to fall to a pathetic 6-7. Blame the coach, blame the fact that teams in the beginning were not very good, blame Trent Edwards for losing his confidence, whatever. The real culprit here is the owner. I could sit hear and list the ways that Ralph Wilson as neglected and demolished this once proud franchise, but most are aware of what is going on. Until the team is in the hands of someone capable, this franchise will not compete for the playoffs…and I may not watch another game.

Thank you Ralph Wilson for all the memories.
