NFL Week 7 Powerless Rankings
by Pietro DiSante Jr,posted Oct 17 2012 11:37PM
Sometimes the little guy needs some love. This week I will have my Powerless Rankings, which will be my Bottom 10 teams in the NFL and I will also have my Top teams in my usual Power Rankings, so don't worry. There are plenty of options for the Powerless Rankings, as there are for the Power Rankings, but most teams are actually in the middle. Let's get to it shall we?
1. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-4)
There is just something bad about them this year. The bye week helped them from being (1-5) though, so that's a positive. As is Maurice Jones-Drew.
2. Kansas City Chiefs (1-5)
I really thought they would be pretty good this year. I was wrong.
3. Oakland Raiders (1-4)
Not much going right for the Raiders this year. I think Carson Palmer is done too. Talk about a bad trade!
4. Tennessee Titans (2-4)
Yeah, I know they beat the Steelers, but they are pretty bad. I would stick with Hasselbeck at QB though, even if Locker is healthy.
5. Carolina Panthers (1-4)
Whoa Cam. What is going on here?
6. Indianapolis Colts (2-3)
This team will get better as the year goes on and probably will be playoff caliber by next season.
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3)
Josh Freeman might not be the answer at QB. They have plenty of other issues though, not just him.
8. Cleveland Browns (1-5)
I actually don't think the Browns are that bad. They play pretty well each week. Still, (1-5) is not a very good record.
9. Buffalo Bills (3-3)
Pretty soft .500 record.
10. St. Louis Rams (3-3)
Same as Buffalo.
Okay, so that wraps up my bottom 10, now to the Top 10:
1. New York Giants (4-2)
Finally the defending Super Bowl Champions are #1 on my list. They look great right now. No question.
2. New England Patriots (3-3)
What? They have a .500 record! They just lost to Seattle! I know, but they will get back on track. (Hopefully not this week)
3. Denver Broncos (3-3)
Peyton Manning finally has the team on track. I could see them finishing the season no worse than (11-5).
4. Green Bay Packers (3-3)
The Pack are also back on track. Look for them to compete for the NFC crown.
5. Baltimore Ravens (5-1)
The Ravens lost Webb and Lewis for the season, which will hurt, but I still think they will make the playoffs.
6. Atlanta Falcons (6-0)
Hey, I am a believer in Atlanta being a good team, but they are not a great team yet. Too many close calls with far inferior teams the last few weeks.
7. Houston Texans (5-1)
I am a little worried about Houston, but this week against the Ravens should tell us a lot about the kind of team they are.
8. Chicago Bears (4-1)
Coming off a Bye, the Bears look to take down Megatron and the Lions.
9. Seattle Seahawks (4-2)
Have to put the Seahawks on here after a win over New England. They play great at home. They might make the playoffs.
10. New York Jets (3-3)
Yeah, this #10 spot could be filled with many teams right now: Arizona, Minnesota, Washington, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, etc. I think Rex and the boys have a shot at winning in New England. We will see.
Okay, Week 7 begins tomorrow night with the 49ers hosting the Seahawks for 1st place in the NFC West. Should be a good one!
