Sports Blog NFL Power Rankings: Week Zero

Week 2 NFL Power Rankings coming tomorrow!

We already thought that the Giants would be bad, and losing Osi Umenyiora didn’t help at all. We’ve moved them down to #20, even after they beat the Patriots 19-14 in the silly season. We can’t wait for an 18 game regular season and a 2 game exhibition slate. Save the whole “bitter Patriot fan” comments. We know that we are bitter.

The Sports Dollar is thirsty: “I’m drinking the Kool-Aid of the Eagles and it feels a little awkward. Supposedly the choke artist McNabb is back in full force and health, Westbrook is a beast and possible MVP candidate, and the Cowboys just had another major injury at WR. This could be a sneak attack year for Philly out in the NFC East, so look out!”

My Sports Rumors on the other New York team: “Jets fans are pretty special and at times you have to wonder if they’re smarter than a fifth grader. So in honor of Jeff Foxworthy (cue his voice), You might be a front runner, if you own a Brett Favre Jets jersey. All the Jets fans feel they are contenders now–even many media outlets are boosting them in their rankings. We’re not–they only move up ONE spot from their pre-training camp ranking. Get ready for bandwagon jumping in Week 2 when Favre airmails some balls to the Pat defense in front of the home crowd.”

The Blue Workhorse also highlighted the Jets, although they took the other side: “Adding future Hall-of-Fame QB Brett Favre helps the Jets jump 12 spots on our list.” At least they had them at #31 before.

World of Isaac on the Lions restoring the roar: “The Lions finished the preseason 4-0. The last time the Lions won 4 games in a row, well, let me think now…. I bonged my first beer at age 15, so it was definitely before that . I touched my first pair of boobies when I was 10, so I think before then too. I think I was in the third grade…..yea, around there….so what does that make me 8 or something? Hmm? Anyways, there you have it. The last time the Lions won 4 games in a row I was a prepubescent pervert who hadn’t drank a beer or touched any boobies…. For any normal blogger, that would just be called ‘last week.'”

    awesome idea guys. If anyone wants to do an NBA give me a shout.

  2. Paul says:

    haha broadway, i only moved them up one spot but still have them higher then the other guys. vegas knows what they are doing they improved the odds to get some Brett Favre sentimental money.

  3. BlueWorkhorse says:

    @ Paul The Giants didn’t just lose one star defensive player. They lost both of their former All-Pro defensive ends in gap tooth and too many vowels, and they also lost a starting linebacker (can’t remember name) and safety (Gibril Wilson) to free agency.Their depth on the defensive line is porous enough that they are moving Kiwanuka back to his natural position at end.@ James I have to agree about their division being tough as hell this year. Possibly, the toughest division in football.

  4. BroadwayBrett says:

    Good luck with that – Jets jumped from 35-1 to win the SB to 10-1. I’ll take vegas over whoever moved them up one spot…

  5. Admin says:

    I see the 2008 Giants as the 2002 Patriots… tough division, team that beat all odds the year before, etc…

  6. Paul says:

    20th James??? Yea the Giants are going to take a hit but it’s not like they lost Eli! A star defensive player is great but won’t destroy a team the way a star offensive player would if he went down. Defense is more about the system anyways, and with Spags you KNOW he’ll make the pieces work.Stop drinking the haterade and get over your Super Bowl whooping already!

  7. BlueWorkhorse says:

    Damn! Still no love for my Falcons. I’m calling it now…we won’t get the #1 pick next year (wouldn’t hurt us, but it won’t happen).
