NFL Rankings Week 8


1. New York Jets: The Jets did have a bye week but the Steelers looked awful and that will give them the go ahead.

2. Indianapolis Colts: The Colts are also coming off a bye and look to beat the Texans on Monday night to retake the lead in the AFC South.

3. New England Patriots: It doesn’t look pretty but they are winning games.

4. Tennessee Titans: They’re defense is becoming one of the most feared in the league and the offense is making up for a sloppy season from Chris Johnson.

5. Baltimore Ravens: They’re defense could stop the Bills offense for nothing and if you want the top spot in the Rankings you need to beat the Bills without going to overtime.

6. Pittsburgh Steelers: They look really bad with Big Ben back…could Tomlin go back to one of his other QB’s?

7. New York Giants: They shouldn’t have won Monday night but with Romo out I think the Cowboys will start to appreciate him more.

8. Atlanta Falcons: They almost blow a 17 point lead but were able to recover and finish the game.

9. Houston Texans: If they can beat the Colts on MNF they can start to gain space in the AFC South.

10. Philadelphia Eagles: Will Andy Reid please decide who he wants to play QB?

11. Kansas City Chiefs: They rebounded with a nice all around effort against the Jaguars to stop their 2 game losing streak.

12. Miami Dolphins: They should have beaten the Steelers if it wasn’t for the wired call and now they are starting to get desperate in a division with two, one loss teams.

13. New Orleans Saints: They are falling apart. Did someone say something about a dynasty?

14. Green Bay Packers: They were one foot away from getting beat by Brett Favre again this team is REALLY flat.

15. Minnesota Vikings: Take away two HORRIBLE throws by Favre and they would have had another win.

16. Washington Redskins: They Beat Chicago but only by 3 points and they had to have 4 interceptions to do it. They need to get the show on the road.

17. Cincinnati Bengals: They almost came back but they shouldn’t have gotten into that big of a deficit in a game against a bad defense.

18. Chicago Bears: They need to trade anything they can to protect Cutler they are killing their franchise QB.

19. San Diego Chargers: Wow, They totally beat the Patriots but the stupid mistakes killed them.

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: They are learning how to win, but they need to keep that consistent.

21. Denver Broncos: They totally got killed by a bad Raiders team and they need to rebound quick.

22. Dallas Cowboys: Well…what now? They have probably lost Romo for the season and they already only have one win.

23. St. Louis Rams: They out played Tampa but as is the case with a young team, couldn’t close out the game, but this is a team on the right track.

24. San Francisco 49ers: They need to hope that Alex Smith can heal fast and that the England air will help their football team.

25. Seattle Seahawks: They won but it wasn’t very convincingly, they need to stay consistent.

26. Oakland Raiders: After playing off and on they had a blow out win against the Broncos, they need to keep it going though.

27. Detroit Lions: They were on a bye week so hopefully it will give time for Stafford to heal.

28. Jacksonville Jaguars: They are in a mess at the QB position and their defense gave up 42 points to the Chiefs.

29. Cleveland Browns: They got a nice win and the team is starting to look sharper.

30. Carolina Panthers: They got a win, but this team will take a while to turn themselves around.

31. Arizona Cardinals: I thought Max Hall was the next great diamond in the rough? Oh, I guess they were wrong.

32. Buffalo Bills: Fitzpatrick is playing some solid football and the offense is starting to get going.

NFL Rankings Week 7


1. Pittsburgh Steelers: I think they have to stay at the top of the rankings because they played a good game.

2. Indianapolis Colts: The Colts look like they’ve recovered from their 2-2 start and now at 4-2 and they need to knock off the Texans on Monday night after their bye, although most teams haven’t done well after a bye week.

3. New England Patriots: Tom Brady showed he didn’t need Randy Moss to win and Deion Branch had a good welcome back game.

4. New Orleans Saints: After two very bad losses they are now only ½ a game behind first since Atlanta lost, but Atlanta still has the tie breaker with the overtime win they had against the Saints.

5. New York Jets: They didn’t look great against the Broncos, but they did come out with a win.

6. Baltimore Ravens: Ravens played a solid offensive game but the defense couldn’t hold Brady from coming back.

7. New York Giants: The Giants are on the up hill climb and that defense is starting to come around.

8. Tennessee Titans: They totally dominated in their MNF game against Jacksonville. Kerry Collins did well but we hope Vince gets well soon.

9. Philadelphia Eagles: So now who do you start? Kolb did great and Vick is now healthy. I guess most teams don’t have one good QB, so two is a luxury.

10. Houston Texans: They won the game against Kansas City but the Chiefs scored at will against that horrible Texans defense and with Demarco Ryans out for the season it will only get worse, they better hope their offense can out score the opponent every week or this team is in trouble.

11. Atlanta Falcons: They were on a good track but a bad loss to the Eagles hopefully won’t derail that.

12. Kansas City Chiefs: Their offense was great and the defense play good football until the final couple minutes of the game, but this is a young team and they will continue to learn and get better.

13. Miami Dolphins: The Dolphins came up with a win, but this offense needs to step it up, it’s defense can’t win the game every week.

14. Minnesota Vikings: Vikings avoided going 1-4 but only beat a 1-4 team. They need to get Adrian Peterson going to take pressure off of Favre and to help close games.

15. Washington Redskins: They are continuing to make progress; I think Shanahan has then on the right track.

16. Chicago Bears: They would be undefeated if they had a halfway descend offensive line. They need to protect Jay Cutler now that he has show he can be that franchise QB that they gave 2 first round picks for.

17. Green Bay Packers: They seem to never be able to finish a game, plus Aaron Rogers looks REALLY flat.

18. Denver Broncos: The Broncos are starting to come around and they should have beat the Jets, they certainly out played the Jets.

19. San Diego Chargers: I never thought I’d see the day when Phillip Rivers and the Chargers lost to the Rams, but I guess I just did…I don’t know what to say about them.

20. Dallas Cowboys: They are in the same boat as the Chargers…I am speechless.

21. San Francisco 49ers: Well, They finally got a win. I think this is a team capable of coming back and winning the division.

22. Cincinnati Bengals: They haven’t been consistent at all, lets see if the bye week helps, although from so far teams coming off a bye are 5-3.

23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: I don’t mean to knock down the Buccaneers but all along I was wondering when they would get back to the old Buccaneers

24. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford has done wonders in St. Louis with a 3-3 record.

25. Seattle Seahawks: They had a solid win against the Bears, but they need to be more consistent.

26. Detroit Lions: They played a decent game against a hot Giants team, this team is slowly but surly improving.

27. Oakland Raiders: Well, after looking sharp last week Jason Campbell got back to his normal routine of playing flat.

28. Jacksonville Jaguars: They totally got embarrassed against Tennessee and Garrard better stop getting injured so much, because Trent Edwards didn’t play very good.

29. Arizona Cardinals: They are a team that is now went from competing for a Super Bowl to competing for the 1st pick of the draft.

30. Cleveland Browns: Colt McCoy did alright, but no one is going to do good against that Steelers defense.

31. Carolina Panthers: They need to just take the season off.

32. Buffalo Bills: From so are the only thing exciting about these bottom teams is trying to guess who gets the 1st pick in the draft.

NFL Predictions Week 6

NFL Rankings Week 6


1. Pittsburgh Steelers: That defense is totally dominate and with Big Ben returning this team will be the team to beat in the NFL.

2. New York Jets: After a slow start to the season Mark Sanchez and the Jets have caught fire. I think the one weak spot will be if Revis doesn’t get healthy quickly.

3. Baltimore Ravens: If Flacco can sharpen up and play like he did last year there is no boundaries where this team can go.

4. Chicago Bears: This team has caught fire; we can only hope Cutler will not be out much longer.

5. Indianapolis Colts: The Colts had a hard time against Kansas City but the Chiefs defense is becoming one of the best, so expect them to bounce back.

6. Atlanta Falcons: If the Falcons can continue to play well and really get into a rhythm they will have a good chance at taking the NFC South if not the NFC.

7. New England Patriots: Moss or no Moss this team has one player that will make them win and that is Tom Brady. The defense needs to step up, but I think Belichick will find a way just like he always does.

8. Green Bay Packers: This team is so talented but they look REALLY flat and without Aaron Rogers it is only going to get worse.

9. New Orleans Saints: Well, to lose to an up and coming Falcons team is one thing, but to lose to a Cardinals team that is in total rebuilding mode is really bad.

10. Kansas City Chiefs: This defense is for real, they held Peyton Manning to less then 300 yards and didn’t let him get a single touchdown, No other team has been able to do that this season. Plus, take away a dropped TD pass by Dwayne Bowe and a fumble by Jamal Charles and I think the Chiefs would have stayed unbeaten. Watch out for the Chiefs, they are back.

11. Houston Texans: The Texans have showed they have the talent on their team, to beat anybody; they continue to slipup and not be able to finish a game. This is mainly because of their 32nd ranked pass defense, if the Texans want to challenge the Colts they will have to improve in that area.

12. New York Giants: The Giants are a few games away from jumping up the Rankings, but I think they should say here till they prove this is not just a fluke.

13. San Diego Chargers: The Chargers are a couple of good special teams plays away from being undefeated. They have given up a special teams touchdown in each of their games this season, and they are 2-3, they need to improve their if they want to keep the division.

14. Tennessee Titans: The Titans got back on track in Dallas, after a bad stretch, but VY really needs to be more of an impact on a consistent basis if they want to make the playoffs.

15. Washington Redskins: They may be winning, but it is by the skin of their teeth. If this team wants a playoff appearance they need to win some games on their own and not just off of other teams’ mistakes.

16. Philadelphia Eagles: They need to find who is going to be QB and hope he won’t get hurt. I think this is a good Eagles team, but they don’t have the same depth chart from week to week and that will hurt a teams rhythm.

17. Miami Dolphins: Special teams are killing them, but their defense has improved big time.

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Don’t ask me how the Buc’s are doing it, but their winning.

19. Dallas Cowboys: The Cowboys are still in my opinion the most talented team in the NFL, but they have the least spirit in the NFL.

20. Cincinnati Bengals: They have the same problem as the Cowboys and that is lack of spirit, they need to get this show on the road if they won’t to make the playoffs

21. Minnesota Vikings: This team is in the same category as the last two and that is they are very talented but the little mistakes are killing them. If you ask me personally, I think this team without Favre is better then this team with him.

22. Denver Broncos: If they could only have Elis Dummervil back and have a halfway descent running game, this team would be in the playoffs easily

23. Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jaguars need to stop making the little mistakes and they would be a halfway descent team.

24. Oakland Raiders: So now who do you start? Jason Campbell or Bruce Gradkowski? With their running defense being as bad as it is and their pass defense getting worse, this team is in for another 5 win season.

25. Arizona Cardinals: Well, Max Hall is playing descent football and this defense showed up against the Saints.

26. Seattle Seahawks: They have won with fluke plays and they need to get sharper on both sides of the ball.

27. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford is looking REALLY special and the defense is starting to come around slowly but surly.

28. Detroit Lions: They had a nice win against the Rams, but the Rams are the Rams and they need to have better QB play, since the defense is doing so well.

29. Cleveland Browns: If they start Colt McCoy against the Steelers he will be totally killed and he won’t be able to recover.

30. San Francisco 49ers: This team is the best in the NFC West, but they look like they don’t know what their doing.

31. Carolina Panthers: The Panthers can only hope the season ends soon.

32. Buffalo Bills: Well, at lease they have descent QB play from the Ivy League QB.
