Two Teams Are Head Above The Rest, But You Already Knew That!

So now that we’ve seen a decent chunk of the NFL season, I think it’s safe to start “grouping” the league into sensible groups. Now, some people like to do a simple 1 through 32 “power ranking.” Nothing wrong with that. But I look at the league differently, once she has revealed certain patterns through the season.

There are “tiers” in my mind, and teams can climb up, and fall down from specific tiers, depending on how the looked 5 minutes ago. Because honestly, we all judge what we think in this kaleidescope league, on the very last thing that crossed our eyeballs.

Records don’t really matter to me. Head to head, doesn’t really matter to me. These are just groupings. And subject to change, which they will from week to week, from now until season’s end.

So sit back and get ready to fire off an angry email to me about how wrong I am about your favorite team.

  1. Well, Bronco Defense is better than we all thought. And … Packer Defense is just dreadful. Should have figured that out when the 2-6 Chargers lit them up in Green Bay.

    For the Peyton Manning fans, don’t get too excited about the passing stats for this game, Rivers went for 503 on the road against this Pack “D”. But, it is a step forward for him.
