NFL Power Rankings – Week 3

NFL Power Rankings for Week 3 – Who out their thought the Chiefs and the Bucs would be 2-0 this season?  No one.  One more win and I will give them a little more respect.

1 Green Bay Packers (2-0)
Brandon Jackson isn’t looking too sharp, but the passing game did pick up a bit.  Even with Jackson at RB the Packers are still the team to beat.
2 New Orleans Saints (2-0)
Reggie Bush is out for the year with a broken leg. The Saints will miss his playmaking ability, but I think he can be replaced pretty easily.
3 Houston Texans (2-0)
Texans LT Duane Brown was suspended 4 games due to violating the NFL’s PED policy. This is a huge hit for the Texans, it will be interesting how they react to the loss of Brown.

4 Indianapolis Colts (1-1)
Peyton Manning won the Manning Bowl by a landslide.  The Colts look like they should, and they will be at the top of the league from here on out.
5 Baltimore Ravens (1-1)
Flacco looked horrible last week, he should bounce back this week against the Browns. I have high hopes for Flacco this year, hopefully that will be his worst performance of the year.
6 Miami Dolphins (2-0)
The Fins are on top of their division, and it isn’t a fluke.  Their defense is solid, and their offense will come around.  I hope.
7 Philadelphia Eagles (1-1)
Kolb is out, and Vick is now the starting quarterback. Vick has done a good job so far, he has looked sharp, but I don’t know if this is good for the Eagles in the long run.
8 Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0)
Their defense is the only reason they are 2-0, they have a even greater battle this week since Charlie Batch is their Quarterback.  Does anyone else smell upset special?
9 New York Jets (1-1)
So they beat the Patriots at home, big deal, if you want to crown them, crown them.  I still think their are major flaws in the Jets.
10 New England Patriots (1-1)
Kevin Faulk is out for the season, and the Pats are running low on running backs. I would like to see them trade for a RB, rather than using Fred Taylor and Sammy Morris.
11 Cincinnati Bengals (1-1)
They beat the Ravens which is a great accomplishment.  But Carson Palmer isn’t the same anymore, they need to figure out what is wrong with him or find a replacement.
12 Chicago Bears (2-0)
I really expected the Bears to crash and burn this year with the Mike Martz system, but they have done well.  It is still early though, since it is still above freezing in Chicago.
13 Atlanta Falcons(1-1)
Snelling went off this week on the Cardinals.  It has to make the Cardinals feel pretty confident if Turner goes down with a major injury. Although, it was only the Cardinals.
14 San Diego Chargers (1-1)
The Chargers didn’t deal Vincent Jackson. I think that was a big mistake on their part.  They may not get as much for him since he won’t be playing as long this season.
15 Washington Redskins (1-1)
I thought Mike Shanahan could make any running back into a stud?  The Redskins are last in the league in rushing this year.  It is probably time for a change at running back.
16 Minnesota Vikings (0-2)
The Vikes couldn’t land Vincent Jackson, and Harvin is having problems with his migraines.
They should win this week, if they don’t, look for Favre’s head on a platter.
17 Kansas City Chiefs (2-0)
Matt Cassel is not doing very good, the Chiefs just need let him hand the ball off and throw an occasional screen. Just get the ball to McCluster and Charles.
18 New York Giants (1-1)
Brandon Jacobs wants out.  Which is probably a good thing for the Giants because he is terrible.  They should trade him off as fast as they can.
19 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0)
The stars could align for the Bucs this week. The Steelers quarterback is Charlie Batch this week.  If they can get a few big plays past the Steelers D then they have a shot.
20 Dallas Cowboys (0-2)
The Cowboys season could be over after this week.  If they don’t win this game Phillips will be fired during their bye week.
21 Denver Broncos (1-1)
Tim Tebow watch game 2:  No sighting, Orton threw for 300 yards + gained a win.  I don’t know if we are going to see Tebow this season, due to hot-hot Kyle Orton.
22 Tennessee Titans (1-1)
Vince Young has a horrible game vs the Steelers.  But who doesn’t?  Kerry Colins is not the answer, so don’t expect to see him again.
23 San Francisco 49ers (0-2)
The 49ers played much better this week, even though they lost.  I don’t want to call it a morale victory, but they had an equal chance of winning the game as the Saints did.
24 Seattle Seahawks (1-1)
Hasselbeck is either boom or bust.  He will either throw 3 TDS or 3 interceptions.  Last week he just happened to throw 3 INTs.
25 Arizona Cardinals (1-1)
Was trading Matt Leinart really the answer for the Cardinals?  I say Max Hall starts by week five, because Derek Anderson is terrible.
26 Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1)
Their offense is hanging in there, but their defense is atrocious.  It isn’t their year though, they will end up last in their division.  Then end up in LA.
27 Oakland Raiders (1-1)
Matt really thought that Jason Campbell was the answer for the Raiders.  It turns out that he wasn’t. I’m not sure if Bruce Gradkowski is either. But I think Jeff Garcia is still available.
28 Detroit Lions (0-2)
Shaun Hill and the Lions played surprisingly well last week against the Eagles.  I am starting to regret that the Vikings traded spots with the Lions and let them draft Jahvid Best.
29 St.Louis Rams (0-2)
The Rams are a lot better than there 0-2 record.  I am pretty impressed with Sam Bradford so far.  Especially since I have Mark Clayton on all of my fantasy teams.
30 Cleveland Brown (0-2)
The Browns almost won their first game last week. They could actually be a decent team if they had a capable quarterback, and a running back, and maybe a stud wide receiver.
31
Carolina Panthers (0-2)
How can you have two of the best running backs in the NFL and only have 171 rushing yards between them after two games? It will be a waste if they can’t use both of those back better.
32
Buffalo Bills (0-2)

I don’t think changing Quarterbacks is going to Bills, they have way more problems than just that. Fred Jackson had over 1000 yards last year, and they aren’t utilizing him at all.
