NFL Power Rankings – Week 4

NFL Power Rankings for Week 3 – Who out their thought the Chiefs, Bears and Steelers would be 3-0 this season?  No one.  I think the Chiefs are still a year away, the Steelers are for real and the Bears have just been really lucky

1

Indianapolis Colts (2-1)
Peyton Manning is a beast. If the Colts signed me this week I think Peyton Manning would make me look respectable within a month.
2

Green Bay Packers (2-1)
Aaron Rodgers is emerging into a mobile Peyton Manning, yeah, I said it. Brandon Jackson is terrible, Kuhn should be starting instead.
3

New Orleans Saints (2-1)
Garrett Hartley is mostly to blame for the loss Sunday, but he can’t take all the heat. Where has Marques Colston been? Also, the Saints signed 46 year old John Carney and will carry him all season in addition to Garrett Hartley.
4

Houston Texans (2-1)
The loss of Duane Brown was huge for the Texans as they couldn’t block anyone on the Cowboys defensive line.
5 Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0)
Just plug a QB in and go. The Steelers looked good even with Charlie Batch at the helm
6 New England Patriots (2-1)
If Bill Belichick can mold the secondary into something better than horrific the Patriots should be heading to the Super Bowl
7

Baltimore Ravens (2-1)
It was nice to finally see Flacco and Boldin get on track, but if Ray Rice is out for more than a week or two, the Ravens will really struggle
8 Chicago Bears (3-0)
Jay Cutler is already near the NFL season record of most dropped INTs. Cutler takes a lot of chances and eventually DBs will start catching the ball

9 New York Jets (2-1)
The Jets beat the Dolphins, barely.  I think the teams are pretty equal, and it will be a battle all year to see who ends up on top.  It’s a shame they can’t play three times in a season (- playoff).
10
Philadelphia Eagles (2-1)

I’m not sure what happened, but at some point Michael Vick became a lot more patient in the pocket. DeSean Jackson is also entering the elite WR category
11 Miami Dolphins (2-1)
What has happened to Ricky Williams? Despite his struggles the Dolphins are still 2-1.
12 Cincinnati Bengals (2-1)
Jordan Shipley has one less catch than Terrell Owens on only half the targets. He’s looking like a steal for the Bengals
13

Atlanta Falcons(2-1)
How many WRs would you take over Roddy White if you were starting a team? Definitely not many.
14

Kansas City Chiefs (3-0)
Tony Moeaki has emerged as a great pass catching TE and a favorite of Matt Cassel’s. His one handed TD grab this week was amazing.
15

Minnesota Vikings (1-2)
Bernard Berrian and the rest of the Vikings WRs look terrible. Visanthe Shiancoe is the only viable target at this point (and Adrian Peterson).
16

Dallas Cowboys (1-2)
I said it early in the season, Roy Williams will have a lot of value this year.
17

San Diego Chargers (1-2)
Is Ryan Mathews going to get his starting job back when healthy? Mike Tolbert has looked great so far.
18

Tennessee Titans (2-1)
Vince Young goes for 10-16 and suddenly he’s back? I’m not buying into it.
19

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1)
Ronde Barber looks like he’s 25 again. Too bad the rest of the defense is under 25 and a year or two away.
20

New York Giants (1-2)
Eli Manning has made terrible decisions all season and that’s mainly why they’re 1-2.
21

Arizona Cardinals (2-1)
The Cardinals wide receivers are going down left and right.  Maybe it wasn’t Boldin’s fault trying to stay healthy in Arizona.
22

Denver Broncos (1-2)
Kyle Orton is the ultimate 20-20 quarterback. He can move a team from one 20 to another quickly, he just struggles to produce touchdowns. (Credit to Mike Lombardi)
23

San Francisco 49ers (0-3)
Remember that time the 49ers drafted Alex Smith over Aaron Rodgers? If I was a 49ers fan I’d be crying right now.
24

Seattle Seahawks (2-1)
Special teams won the game for the Seahawks last week.  Maybe they should have Leon Washington be the feature back in Seattle.  Just a thought. Maybe more than 1 rushing attempt.
25

Washington Redskins (1-2)
I don’t think Clinton Portis is going to last much longer as the #1 running back in Washington.  Ryan Torain will take over the top running back spot in the next few weeks
26

Carolina Panthers (0-3)
Without John Fox as their coach the Panthers would be dead last. If only they had a 2nd WR and a decent QB.
27

St.Louis Rams (1-2)
Sam Bradford got his first win and it was without much help from Steven Jackson (injury), the Rams are heading in the right direction.
28

Detroit Lions (0-3)
They don’t have a win, but they are much improved from 2009.
29

Oakland Raiders (1-2)
At least Darren McFadden has looked good. As for the rest of the team? Not so much, although Louis Murphy hasn’t looked too bad
30

Cleveland Brown (0-3)
Eric Mangini has already announced when healthy Jerome Harrison will be the starting RB. Dumb comments like that earn you spot 30
31

Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)
Who is David Garrard’s backup? You had to look it up too? It’s, Todd Bouman. This team is going nowhere fast.
32

Buffalo Bills (0-3)
With the first pick in the 2011 NFL Draft the Buffalo Bills select….
