This is going to be one crazy year in the National Football League.
Week two usually shows some adjustments as teams either figure it out, or fall off the pace quickly.
1. San Francisco: Still playing by their plan. Someone needs to find a way to make them uncomfortable. Minnesota and The Jets next.
2. Houston: Wasn’t going to move them up yet because of lack of competition, but they do look complete right now.
3. Baltimore: A one point loss to the officials…oh I mean the Eagles didn’t spoil anything. New England will be tough this week.
4. New York Giants: While the defense is looking a bit shaky, the offense is suddenly one of the best in the league. Short rest vs. Carolina Thursday, then another eternity to prepare for Eagles Sunday night affair.
5. Green Bay: Righted the ship vs Chicago, now Seattle and a desperate New Orleans to follow.
6. Atlanta: Broncos handed them a game, but they still looked good in taking advantage of the opportunity. A surprising 2-0 San Diego awaits before a division battle vs. Carolina
7. Pittsburgh: They still find ways to win even without key players. They get the hapless Raiders then an early bye week.
8. New England: The loss of Hernandez, and the lack of Welker touches has changed this team. A very upset Baltimore team this week, and then a revitalized Buffalo team await. Time for the AFC champs to step up.
9. Philly: Two one point wins is not impressive, but they are 2-0. A sky high Arizona team followed by the high flying Super Bowl Champs. Me thinks 6 more interceptions in the next two weeks will make them 2-2, but we will see.
10. Chicago: Looked like the old Bears, Mike Tice is not the answer to any question in this league. The surprising Rams and the Cowboys up next. Who are these guys?
11. Detroit: Looked pretty pedestrian at the beginning of the Niners game, but then made a stand. Tennessee and Minnesota should be easier tests before the bye week.
12. Denver: Peyton still has some kinks to work out. Who ever thought you would see both Mannings throw 3 ints. Only one of them could throw their way back to victory, and it was Eli. A tough Houston team is up next.
13. San Diego: A shocking turn of events. The chargers are playing well to start the season, however Atlanta is next followed by a desperate K.C. team.
14. Arizona: Winning IN New England is almost impossible, especially on opening day. Philly, Miami, St. Louis and Buffalo up next after a surprising 2-0 start. Could be the start of something good even without a QB.
15.Cincinnati: With Cleveland, Washington, Jacksonville and Miami up next, they should improve greatly.
16. Carolina: Superman made it out of the phone booth this week. Giants next followed by Atlanta and Seattle. Getting the run game going makes Steve Smith and Cam hard to stop.
17 Seattle: Nice win against the overblown Cowboys. Green Bay, Rams, Panthers, and New England await.
18. Dallas: Might have read too much about their great win in NY. Now have to face a tough, upset, Tampa team, followed by Chicago, Baltimore and Carolina.
19. Tampa: They have a great plan in place, but still inexperienced at winning. Cowboys, Redskins, Chiefs and Saints up next. They better find a way to stop the long ball quickly.
20. The Jets and Tim Tebow: Tebow is a bust as a Jet, and Sanchez looked like he always does in Pittsburgh. They travel to Rex’s personal hell in Miami this week, but since he hired their “High School Coach” to be his offensive coordinator, maybe his luck will change…it better, San Fran and Houston after that.
21. New Orleans: I guess Drew Brees isn’t that smart after all. 0-2 and play an equally desperate K.C. team followed by Green Bay, San Diego, and Tampa Bay.
22. Buffalo: Nice rebound, but how good is K.C.? With Cleveland, New England, San Fran and Arizona up next it’s an early make or break part of the schedule.
23. St. Louis: Fischer seems to have their attention now. Chicago, Seattle, Arizona nd Miami is a nice stretch to prove who you are, or might be.
24. Tennessee: An awful start will get worse. Detroit, Houston, Minnesota, and Pittsburgh.
25. Washington: RG3 learned the important lesson every college player must learn when they take the step into the NFL…You are no longer faster than all 11 guys on defense.
The Rest: Oakland, Minnesota,Indy, Miami, Cleveland, Kansas City, and Jacksonville
