Lucky Seven: NFL Power Rankings Wk. 7

October 15, 2008 at 4:24 am Leave a comment

The NFL last week look like a mid-season Saturday in the world of college football. There were some five or six last second victories, including the dismal Rams field goal over the Skins while time expires, and the weekly card was hard to win with. This is how I see the power rankings after last Sunday:

1.) Tennessee Titans (2) – They had a bye last week and obviously stayed undefeated. You may not believe in Kerry Collins, which I don’t either, but there is no reason the Titans shouldn’t be number one.

2.) Pittsburgh Steelers (6) – They had a bye week and the Steelers jump four spots? I know, I understand. But everyone else in the top seven from last week lost games that they shouldn’t have. It just so happens that the two teams that rise the ranking board didn’t actually play last week. The bye week didn’t make the Steelers any less physical, and I still remember the Jags game.

3.) New York Giants (1) – I still feel that they’re overrated and Eli is no where near as good as Peyton. However, they’ve beat the Redskins (who have beaten the Cowboys and Eagles) and until the G-Men actually play those two division foes, we won’t know the truth about them. I know one thing, they had no idea what smacked them on Monday Night. I don’t see this team as a huge threat, sorry Giants’ fans.

4.) Washington Redskins (3) – The did lose to arguably the worst team in the NFL, but it was the best thing that could have happened to the Skins. Washington players and coaches claimed they didn’t pay attention to the media and critics, which is complete crap. They listened to the media, their head grew to the size of a blimp, and they looked past the winless Rams. They showed strength by overcoming their first three turnovers of the season, but refused to put the Rams away on the numerous opportunities that they had to do so. The loss is humbling and the Redskins should pick it back up.

5.) Buffalo Bills (NR) – They also had a bye last week, but they are still 4-1. Trent Edwards went down but is expected to make a full recovery and return this week. They have a tough next couple games against division teams and this is where they send a message that the Bills are for real. I like the Bills and I think they can prove it, now they need to put the money where my mouth is.

6.) Arizona Cardinals (NR) – Why not? They’re going to win the NFC West. Kurt Warner seems to know what he’s doing. They’re headed into a bye week after an awesome game against Dallas, which they thoroughly deserved. And I think that when Boldin comes back, Breaston will be a strong third receiver, and the Cardinals are ready to roll. Their defense is suspect, but their next four games should be butter (CAR, STL, SF, SEA).

7.) Dallas Cowboys (4) – And here is where the Cowboys crumble. Pacman is Pacman. Romo goes down for four weeks. And Felix All-Purpose is out for over a month. This all means less playmakers for the Cowboys, but more importantly it means that T.O. is contemplating suicide. The Cowboys’ aquiring of wide out Roy Williams is HUGE, but they gave up waaaay too much for him. Williams will certainly be more productive in Dallas than in Detroit, but he needs to pray that Brad Johnson can deliver for four weeks. With your Pro-Bowl quarterback out  and a horrific secondary, I no longer see this team as the SB favorite.
