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 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.

Week 10: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good

It is an interesting turn of events when a preseason favorite to win the Super Bowl is in last place in their division and, after losing your all-world defense end and being the defending champs, you find yourself atop the conference standings and looking every bit the title holders you are. The NY Giants have been thoroughly beating all comers and it is going to be a tough road through the Meadowlands in the NFC. The Titans continue to be undefeated and their schedule is not getting any tougher. Finally, the Jets, Patriots and Dolphins have been riding high on good wins and it may be a long shot, but we believe both Wild Cards will come from this division (unless the Colts go on an extreme role).

The Giants, Cowboys, Readskins and Eagles, in a height chart that shows ascendency.

The Bad

The San Diego Chargers came into this season a favorite to represent the AFC in the big dance, but now it seems that they are another over-hyped team to go along with a multitude of other predictions-gone-wrong, which is what makes the football a beautiful game. The Bolts almost lost at home the the lowly Chiefs and still remain under .500. The good news is that in what may be the worst division, the playoffs are still a reality and who knows what may transpire in the second season.

This picture is just too funny.

The Ugly

Just when the Rams came out and beat a few teams they have now regressed to a lower state than when the season started. Getting obliterated by the NY Jets, was ugly and over before the kick-off even took place. This is a team that has talent on offense and just can’t seem to get any consitency or cohesion. It was a good thing they got destroyed this week as it did keep me from commenting on the Lions again.

The new mascots for the Rams are feeling rather sheepish hehe.
