Check out the 2009 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings here.
It looks to me like the Cowboys and Eagles are the cream of the crop, and until the Giants play Philadelphia, I’ll just have to like a bitter Patriots fan. Which I still am.
My Sports Rumors on the same issue: “Eagles fans will cry that the Giants should not be ranked ahead of them, I say why not? Yes, the birds have had a tougher road, but should that be held against the Giants? No. They’re 3-0, Birds 2-1 that keeps them ahead of the divisional rivals. The schedule evens out by the end of the season and both sides will have played those same teams. But for now the Super Bowl Champs get the edge, as they are, ummm, defending Super Bowl Champs and have showed minimal signs of giving that up.
The Blue Workhorse on its current coaching duties: “At this time, Al Davis has not told me that I am not the head coach of the Oakland Raiders. Therefore, I will be conducting my daily activities as though I am the head coach of the Oakland Raiders.”
Isaac on the Kitty Cats: “A little over two years ago, the Lions let Dick Jauron finish the Steve Mariucci debacle. The players respected Jauron and though he was extremely bland in his press conferences, he knew his football. But the Lions organization wasn’t having any of it and wanted to clean out and bring in their guy. Apparently, Jauron’s success as a head coach in the NFL wasn’t enough for them. Fast forward two years and Jauron has established the Bills as one of the better teams in the AFC and more than likely, the favorite for the AFC East division. The Lions, well, they have won 10 games since Jauron’s departure… Sad.”
The Sports Dollar comments on that team from St. Louis: “Are the Rams the worst team in the history of the NFL? Is it also possible to have that many stars on offense, yet be this bad? Ok, well let’s say that they aren’t the worst in the NFL because we are leaving that title to the Lions, but they are sure as hell making a case for it. I mean seriously, who benches their quarterback for Trent Green?”
