Week 9 Power Rankings

1. Saints

The Saints have won in every possible way. They remind me of the Yankees of the NFL. No matter what they never seem out of the game and they are the most complete team right now.

2. Colts

Peyton Manning looks like the MVP of the league. The defense is playing a lot better than people have noticed.

3. Vikings

They have the most talented team in the NFL. They would be the best team in the league if they learned to play a full 60 min. Still they are 7-1 and looking very good.

4. New England

This team is looking to get back on track. They are getting the big play and are performing well on defense. This match-up with the Colts is huge.

5. Denver

Two straight losses brings them closer to the Chargers in the division. Still they have the looks of a good team and should get things turned around next week.

6. Bengals.

Wow this team looks impressive. This week is their chance to cement themselves as the AFC North favorite. Who would have thought that after the past decade of Bengals football.

7. Steelers

After an early season skid this team has found its stride beating the Vikings and Broncos in back to back games.

8. Cowboys

A big turnaround the last couple weeks put the Cowboys in first in the NFC East.

9. Cardinals

A little inconsistent but when they get things clicking they have an unstoppable offense.

10. Falcons

This team has struggled a bit lately but took a game they had to have.

11. Eagles

After trouncing the Giants they lost when it mattered most against the Cowboys. This team has not done well in tight contests but are 5-3 and have a talented team.

12. Chargers

Slowly they are getting themselves back into the playoff race. Don’t look now but they are a game out of first. Who would have seen this coming after their Monday night game against the Broncos.

13. Giants

Four straight losses have put this team in jeopardy. They still have enough talent to propel themselves into the playoffs but they have to start winning now.

14. Texans

This team is starting to play more consistently, but still make too many mistakes to make it into the next level. Loads of offensive talent and a 5-4 start could help them sneak into the playoffs for the first time in the franchise’s history.

15. Ravens

At 4-4 this team needs to get things going. They have a good team but they are not all coming together.

16. Jets

Since the 3-0  start they have not shown much. They have young talent and could get on a roll but for now they are just a .500 team.

17. Packers

This team could not afford that loss. The o-line situation is killing them, and their defense has not been that great this season.

18. Bears

Lovie Smith calling the plays has not helped much. This team is just not that good right now.

19. 49ers

They had a good start but they haven’t looked good as of late. The passing game has not improved much and there have been holes in the defense.

20. Jaguars

This team is incredibly inconsistent and ultimately not that good. The have a legitimate threat at receiver in Sims-Walker but have problems at quarterback and lack the dominating defense.

21. Dolphins

This team is a very well coached team. Unfortunately they are not that explosive.

22. Panthers

The running attack is finally coming alive and it has helped this team to be competitive. Unfortunately at 3-5 this team is not talented enough to sneak into the playoffs.

23. Seahawks

They need to fix the running game in the offseason.

24. Titans

This team had the talent to compete for a playoff spot and since Vince Young has started they are showing why. Like the Panthers they are in too deep of a hole but now is the time to see if Young can be their future quarterback.

25. Bills

This team has suffered big injury problems. They have some talent but they need a new quarterback and head coach next year.

26. Redskins

An injury to Portis makes matters worse.

27. Lions

The team is only slightly better than last year. Still they look like they’re on the right track and could compete in a season or two.

28. Raiders

It might be too early to say but it is hard to justify sticking with Russel…besides his outrageous salary.

29. Chiefs

They might not have a lot of wins but they do play hard. For so many top picks you’d think they would have more talent. Chambers seems like a good pick-up

30. Bucs

Josh Johnson’s first start was a win. Unfortunately he might go all season without getting another one. This franchise needs Johnson to be the man or they are going to have some tough years.

31. Rams

Having the bye helps to savor the victory over the Lions. This team needs to add talent outside of Steven Jackson and that means drafting better.

32. Browns

The GM is fired and if they are smart Mangini will follow. This team made as many on field mistakes as they did off them. Cleveland fans deserve better.
