  1. Looking to close on some top shelf special teamers shortly, which should help immediately in the third aspect of the game. Wishing I had a couple prospects back that have recently committed elsewhere, but overall quite happy with where this class is going. Welcome to the University of Oregon, men!
  2. Oh, my bad. I saw Severe (I thought, or I'm making things up) and jumped to conclusions. Glad he's not, what a talent. But, you'd be fine with Troy White solo as well. Hey, remember how you should have traded Troy White to the Broncos before the 2021 season?
  3. That might as well be 40 in the NFL.
  4. And how! That’s a heck of job he’s doing with what, on paper, isn’t necessarily a 7-0 roster...
  5. In my write up I mention that DAL just missed the Top 12 (they’re #13). And, the games I hypothetically have you losing to get to 12-5 are at JAX, at DET, and GB. So, we’re good!
  6. Mostly because KC is coming off two nice wins and your win over them was a bit ago...plus the recent loss to TEN. You're essentially equal with Cincy and KC, I feel.
  7. Yeah, I'd love folks to point out those awesome upcoming matchups that I either gloss over or ignore to talk about other things. Thanks for reminding!
  8. Thomas Wheeler looks for an open man against Las Vegas Apologies for missing the last week of Power Rankings...holiday concert schedule got the better of me. I was hoping that the Question prompts after Week 5 would be enough to gin up some discussion, but that didn't really seem to go anywhere. So, returning to a familiar format, here we go. Lots of movement in the Top 12 over the last two weeks, as we're starting to see some stratification. Potential #1 seeds are making their cases for the top spot, but only two undefeated teams remain. The major shakeup is in the #6-18 range, really, with most of those teams flip-flopping regularly. Where's your team at this week? Find out below... Remember, if you don't like where you are in these rankings...play better! 1. Miami Dolphins (6-0) 2. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-0) An undefeated Miami at this point is not exactly a surprise. They HAVE kicked everyone’s patoot throughout this first part of the season, have couple REALLY good wins (DET early, LVR recently), and have simply been dominant, despite losing key cogs for portions of time. It looks like they’ve come through most of the OL injuries in the clear, and the offense is still humming. This definitely feels like a case of Coach K winning a COY at Duke: well, yeah, they should win all the time, they’re the Dolphins. But Coach @smckenz3 has done a very good job of holding it all together and kicking tail. Now, the Steelers being 7-0 IS a bit surprising. I think folks had an idea of what could be possible in the preseason, as Brooksheer opened his Revenge Tour with some nice performances, but I’m not sure that anyone would have said they would be one of two undefeated squads at basically the halfway mark. The offense has been fantastic, and despite a palpable talent gap on defense, PIT is playing together so well as a team. Their chemistry is excellent and the coaching has been stellar. Kudos to @joedchi and the crew. We're totally gonna ignore the almost-choke-job in DEN on Sunday... 3. Green Bay Packers (5-1) 4. Tennessee Titans (5-1) 5. Detroit Lions (5-1) I’m lumping these three together. All are one small slip-up away from the top two, and all are playing wonderfully unified football. All have shown flashes of dominance and all have snuck past for a win. Perhaps TEN should be slightly ahead, since they’ve already had a couple really nice wins, including the shootout in Nashville against the Raiders. Seems like the Titans could use one more dangerous edge rusher to compliment Tyler Jones and their nasty back 7. Rookie Tyrese Thompson has been a plug-and-play contributor and TEN is even starting to see some gains in the ground game. Their schedule is brutal, though, so we’ll see where they end up. Barring injury, I think the Titans are the #2 seed in the AFC. The two NFC North kingpins are fascinating case studies in Front Office perseverance. The Lions, preseason contenders since forever, finally have the right mix of just about everything to be truly scary. And it feels as though the DET FO didn’t do anything grand to achieve that mix. Just kept drafting well and signing good players to long-term, team-friendly deals. Plus having three Defensive All-Pros helps, and a couple behemoths on the OLine opening holes for rookie Kenyon Randall (surefire OROY at this point, right?). The Packers, meanwhile, just keep winning. Jason Johnson shuffles out with his cane and slings another two touchdowns every game to the best WR unit that no one talks about. This FO certainly HAS made some flashy moves, but that was before their Super Bowl season—now, it more about sustaining that greatness with good chemistry and a shot of adrenaline in the play book periodically. Luckily for the rest of us, GB and DET play each other TWO MORE TIMES. Can’t wait. 6. Carolina Panthers (5-2) 7. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-2) Welcome back, Panthstars! Oof, after a troubling two weeks of dingers to open the season, Carolina is right back in the hunt in the NFC and somewhat surprise leaders in the South with the squeaker over New Orleans on the weekend. Skaggs is Skaggsing again, and Mike Latta is just a damn good football player. The leading receiver changes week-to-week, and that’s just fine for Skaggsy (though one should note the noticeable drop off for TE Curtis Henry in his second season). The defense has mostly been good, led by Kendrick Droughns and Nate Tensi, he of the complete shutdown job on Sean Jenkins in week 7. Jacksonville, on the other hand, has slipped a tiny bit due to some surprising bobbles on the road. Losing to Dallas in Big D isn’t a huge problem. Getting blown out in Dallas while your best player has 8 carries IS a problem. That has felt more aberration than regular spice for the Jaguars this season, but they did miss a chance against the Titans to have a really stellar win. Now, they’ve mostly mowed down mediocre-to-bad squads and failed against the two teams that really had something going for them. Jaguars, right now, are IN, but with the Chiefs, Jets, Colts, and Bengals playing pretty well, we’ll see how long that lasts. 8. Washington Football Club (5-2) 9. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) I know it’s strange to have a 5-2 team just ahead of a 3-3 team, but that’s where we are in the NFC East. Washington is starting to play big man football. Steve Jordan is an animal, and Ricardo Reed is the most underrated quality back in the League. The Eagles would LOVE to have a Ricardo Reed, especially now that RB Marshawn Miller is done for the season. The Eagles ran into some injury problems weeks 3-6, but have looked better of late and are starting to get back to the team I thought they’d be in the first quarter of the season. It will be very interesting to see how these battle it out (they have one remaining game, in D.C.), and if/how they hold off the Cowboys, who just missed the top 12 this week. Two predictions: PHI’s injury woes continue, with a big name going down soon, and the Iggles limp to 8-8. WAS, on the other hand, rides a relatively easy schedule to a surprising #3 seed in the NFC at 11-5. Right now, neither team would win a playoff game against the #5 or #6 seed. 10. Kansas City Chiefs (4-3) 11. Cincinnati Bengals (4-3) 12. Las Vegas Raiders (4-3) The leader of the AFC West is 4-3. That’s better than the NFC West, at least, though mostly pathetic. Kansas City has buckled down and gotten back to a run-first outfit leaning on its best player, Terrence Rodgers. They’ve gotten really good production from the rookie QB Harris, and the defense is salty in most spots. They are coming off a couple really nice wins (NO and HOU back-to-back). Too bad they play an AFCW schedule (multiple games about the AFCS coming up). All this dittos the Raiders, who I think are clearly the best three-loss team, but they’ve lost two in a row and are one monster DE sack away from Nick Hall’s arm hanging loosely from its socket. It, of course, may not matter if the Raiders continue to get punt and kick return touchdowns and huge games from no-name tight ends. Just left lamenting the fact that both the Chiefs and Raiders are imminently “get-able” this year and the Broncos have not the QB to get that done. If you need me, I’ll be over there, putting my arm in a band saw. Coming later this weekend...Part Two, #13-32 "New Bottoms!!!!" Moving Up: , , , Falling Down: , , ,

    [2022] Week #7 - MNF

    Well, I think that qualifies as a pretty freaking huge upset. Or, maybe not. Either way: go AFCW! (*looks at standings, realizes Broncos are tied for fewest wins in division, wants to jump off bridge*)

    You too. We're still in a hole without T-Jennings, but improvement is improvement. Steelers are too good, rooting for you all to keep it up! Broncos will be back...sooner than later.

    [2022] Week #7 - TNF

    Yes, Seattle should have 31 total points. Nice wirk, Hawks!
  15. This. I’ll say Top 9. Match-ups determine all. Zona, with that defense being so dominant, simply hasn’t been tested by a real offense yet.
