NFL Power Rankings: After Week 4/ The Calvin Johnson Edition

2 of 2

(24) 16. Cincinnati Bengals (2-2)

I would like to personally thank Andy Dalton for validating my thoughts on him. Don’t read into the stat line, unless you want the one that says he led a team past an undefeated team that had just beaten the undefeated Patriots…..that one’s pretty good.

(9) 17. Buffalo Bills (3-1)

The biggest drop of the BCS. We’ll stick with the college theme and yell “OOOOOvvveerrr Raaaaaaattteed”!

(17) 18. Dallas Cowboys (2-2)

Here’s my quote from last week:

"I’m not a believer, despite Romo winning two games late. The opponents seemed to beat themselves."

And now Romo beat the Cowboys late, it was a perfect combination. I feel for him, that was rough and he didn’t miss every tackling opportunity on those picks, HOWEVER, Romo’s never been….what’s the word? Clutch. I’ll give you week 2 this year, but his career isn’t clutch. I’ll only drop them some, they did hang in there, like the cat poster.

(18) 19. Cleveland Browns (2-2)

On the bright side, QB Colt McCoy went 40/60. Is it weird I’m more impressed by the 60 throws than the 80% accuracy?

(19) 20. Washington Redskins (3-1)

I couldn’t help it. The BCS dropped this team by 1 after barely beating an 0-4 team.

(21) 21. Carolina Panthers (1-3)

The future is so bright, Cam needs shades.

(20) 22. New York Jets (2-2)

The other Eagles fall and I enjoy every minute of it.

(16) 23. Philadelphia Eagles (1-3)

Does anyone outside of Philly root for them anymore?

(23) 24. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-3)

The defense actually looked pretty good against Brees and company, despite missing their top cornerback, Derrick Cox.

(26) 25. Arizona Cardinals (1-3)

Potential is meaningless unless you win games.

(28) 26. Kansas City Chiefs (1-3)

Well, they won…..against my #32 ranked team.

(29) 27. Seattle Seahawks (1-3)

They played a highly-touted Falcons team close. I’ll give a bump up for that, and because the Dolphins are trying to repeat the 2008 season.

(27) 28. Miami Dolphins (0-4)

I still like Henne, not folding on that one. Did you know that teams used to develop QB’s for 3-5 years. Henne got alienated by the fan base after 1 and a half years while surrounded by sub-par talent. That’s fair, right?

(30) 29. Indianapolis Colts (0-4)

I want to see more from Curtis Painter, I feel like he’s been expected to do too much with too little involvement.

(22) 30. St. Louis Rams (0-4)

Let me re-iterate last week’s line:

"It’s a damn shame that Sam Bradford is on that team."

(31) 31. Denver Broncos (1-3)

So, that schellaping by the Packers was pretty embarrassing, kind of like the Raiders game last year…..

(32) 32. Minnesota Vikings (0-4)

I really used to like McNabb, it’s sad.
