RANK TEAM / RECORD TRENDING COMMENTS
1
Falcons
8-0
Last Week: 1
Change: –
There are always close wins on the road to a Super Bowl.
2
 
Texans
7-1
Last Week: 2
Change: –
I now again believe they are the best team in the AFC.
3
 
Bears
7-1
Last Week: 5
Change: +2
Their defense scores as many points as some teams’ offenses.
4
49ers
6-2
Last Week: 4
Change: –
Amid the first half drama, they are still sitting pretty in the NFC.
5
Giants
6-3
Last Week: 3
Change: -2
Not the 4th quarter Eli Manning we are accustomed to, but they didface the Pittsburgh “D” we are accustomed too.
6
 
Ravens
6-2
Last Week: 6
Change: –
Can’t get overly excited with a win against the Browns, but it is a win. They still have these weird moments in their games where the offense goes completely stagnant.
7
 
Patriots
5-3
Last Week: 7
Change: –
Are they worried about anyone challenging them in their division?
8
Packers
6-3
Last Week: 8
Change: –
For the first time in years, they will have to put in some serious work to win their division. The continuing injuries don’t help.
9
Steelers
5-3
Last Week: 10
Change: -1
Big win over New York. This defense doesn’t look old at all. They deserve some movement for that.
10
Broncos
5-3
Last Week: 9
Change: -1
Broncos have figured things out now, and will continue to roll. They have an identical record with Pitts, but they beat the Bengals. Pittsburgh beat the Giants. Hence the flip in rankings.
11
 
Seahawks
5-4
Last Week: 13
Change: -2
I keep waiting for something to break, and they keep proving all of us wrong.
12
 
Colts
5-3
Last Week: 20
Change: +8
One player and a system change can make a world of difference.
13
 
Vikings
5-4
Last Week: 11
Change: -2
Two major changes: Christian Ponder secured the ball in the first quarter of the season, and they knew how to play defense.
14
Lions
4-4
Last Week: 17
Change: +3
Are things finally starting to settle and click again in Detroit?
15
 
Dolphins
4-4
Last Week: 12
Change: -3
I thought tey were closer to being “THERE” than they really are.
16
 
Cowboys
3-5
Last Week: 16
Change: –
I continue to find it hard to punish Dallas. They are winning laste, in the 4th, of every game. They can just never hold.
17
Cardinals
4-5
Last Week: 15
Change: -2
Remember when they were a Top 5 defense? They have more problems than just QB.
18
 
Eagles
3-5
Last Week: 14
Change: -4
Offensive TO’s are their achilles heel. Mickael Vick and Andy Reid are on the hottest, hot seats in America.
19
Chargers
4-4
Last Week: 21
Change: +2
Let’s not get too excited over a win against a team who gave the defense more TD’s than their offense could generate.
20
Buccaneers
4-4
Last Week: 23
Change: +3
In DOUG MARTIN we trust.
21
 
Saints
3-5
Last Week: 25
Change: +4
This offense has the ability to win games on its own.
22
 
Rams
3-5
Last Week: 22
Change: –
This next half of the season will go a long way in showing how much they have grown, or not, this season.
23
Bengals
3-5
Last Week: 22
Change: -1
They have good, young guys on offense, but have faultered late on both sides of the ball.
24
Jets
3-5
Last Week: 24
Change: –
I hope they realized over the bye week that they have to play hard against all teams, even the ones not from New England.
25
Redskins
3-6
Last Week: 18
Change: -7
I continued to feel they were right on the edge of success and in good shape. After Sunday, I am not so sure. RGIII looked like Newton at the end of the game, and tried to do it all on his own. He has no help on offense, due to injuries. They are sad on defense as well.
26
Titans
3-6
Last Week: 26
Change: –
Last week I said it’s time for them to hit the “REST” button. I was wrong. It’s time for them to hit the “DETONATE” button.
27
Bills
3-5
Last Week: 27
Change: –
Do I have to even tell you what is wrong in Buffalo?
28
 
Raiders
3-5
Last week: 28
Change: –
Which way is UP? If you are consistently on the bottom, and never rising, what is the fix?
29
 
Browns
2-6
Last Week: 30
Change: +1
I know the Skins aren’t playing the best ball, but that was a big win. Can they now keep things on track, and at least salvage some feelings about their season?
30
 
Browns
2-7
Last week: 29
Change: -1
Trent Richardson is a gem, but you can scrap everyone else.
31
Jaguars
1-7
Last week: 31
Change: –
How do you fight tooth and nail against Green Bay one week, and then look pitiful against the Lions the next?
32
Chiefs
1-7
Last Week: 32

Change: –

I was taking bets Thursday night on which team would give the other team more points: KC’s defensive team or KC’s offensive team.

STUDS OF THE WEEK: INDIANAPOLIS COLTS. More like my studs of the 1st half of the season. I have been careful about giving them their just due, thinking they would disappoint at any moment. But they have held strong, and completely turned things around in Indy.

DUDS OF THE WEEK: WASHINGTON REDSKINS. Their record wasn’t much before this loss, but they still seemed to be on the right track. This loss to Carolina showed so many flaws that weren’t apparent before. RGIII tried to do it all on his own, and even if he wouldn’t have, he didn’t have anyone to rely on anyway.
