1 game: Just a game
2 games: A pattern
3 games: A trend
4 games: You are your record

I'm going to go ahead and count the Browns out.
 
2012-09-11 11:59:26 AM  
And I'm also not going to get excited about Sanchez and the Jets just yet. But I have hope.

I love overreaction Monday.

And of course the power rankings, where the same people refuse to downgrade teams because of where that particular scribe had them in the preseason power rankings. a team will be 2-3 and still ranked higher than a 4-1 team because they are a "sexier" team or traditionally are good.

i'm looking at you, P-Kingy.

and i liked Bill Simmons picking the Seahawks to win th eSuper Bowl and I believe he had Wilson as either MVP or ROY, based upon his charisma and poise and all that shiat Simmons loves. Uhh.....josh Freeman, anyone? Simmons' mancrushes are embarassing.

Where is the power ranking thread, anyway? I can't wait to see if Luck got the Jake.
 
2012-09-11 12:42:57 PM  
Ah, the Chiefs. They had 6 defensive starters out in the Atlanta game. That's my excuse for Week 1.

If they lose to Buffalo on Sunday, my excuse will be wings-related.
 
2012-09-11 12:46:14 PM  
I'm pretty sure we can count the Bengals out.
 
2012-09-11 12:49:25 PM  
Steelers D sure needs to improve and the O-line needs to stop getting hurt in their great annual tradition or we'll be out pretty darn fast

It's Tuesday.

But yeah, except teams that entered the year with a ton of injuries and suffered even more (ie Giant's secondary), there isn't much you can predict after only one game. A few surprises though like Jets' offense putting up a ton of points, inability of GB to do anything to fix their defense and that Steeler's O-line got even worse which is going to make it even harder for an aging and visibly slower Ben to get rid of the ball.

Jesus, he did that? While I think the Seahawks are "better" team than they were last year, The Russell Okung Injury Experience once again displayed itself, and no offense, but, I don't think the Ray Horton "Let's Blitz Every Passing Down" defensive approach should be that hard to prepare for...and the 'Hawks at times looked utterly f*cking surprised by it.

I have it from reliable sources, my Twitter and Facebook feeds, that the Ravens have already been crowned Super Bowl champs for the next 4 years (and the last two retroactively), Footsteps Flacco is the MVP (of earth), Ed Reed was named ambassador to the UN for his ability to control oceans (or something) and Art Modell was named head angel of heaven and personally anointed by God to oversee all of heaven's operations. Which I can only assume means relocating it to Valhalla because they have skyboxes.

So this article has to be wrong.

And Rothlesberger still raped someone and we can't allow criminals to play. It's a travesty.

Jon Gruden last night: "There's going to be a lot of teams at 0-1 after this week."

Just a guess, but I'm going to say half. Right around 16 teams will be 0-1.

Also an aging Ben? He's the youngest of any of the guys still playing with a SB victory (maybe Eli is younger, but bit much). The Steelers line didn't get worse, it was already awful, and two starters were hurt by halftime so yeah they are still awful.

The Bears are ahead of the Packers in the standings. I'm going to savor that fact for the next two days while it lasts.

I think Carroll feels he painted himself into a corner with Wilson. Carroll has two 7-9 seasons and probably feels the pressure to post a winning record this year. On the other hand, the team obviously has bought into Wilson entirely. As a result, Carroll decided to limit Wilson's playbook in an effort to be safe. But if he's going to ride a third-round rookie for the season, he'd be better off taking off the guardian and just ride with it. Wilson is athletic enough to improvise and to run; may as well use it, and if he makes a mistake that costs the team the game, well, that's just what happens.

If they open the book against Dallas, I think they can post a decent showing, but right now, Carroll is being too safe with the rookies.
 
2012-09-11 01:10:57 PM  
...however, my can't-miss Super Bowl prediction of Patriots v. 49ers is 2-0.

Both follow the pattern of the conferences in the last decade or so: Not since the Raiders in SB XXXVII has a team not named the Patriots, Steelers, or Colts been the AFC representative in the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, in the same time frame, only the New York Giants have represented the NFC in the Super Bowl more than once.

The freakin' line has been a problem for years - even the SB years. They finally address it in a big way in the draft and now it's a bigger problem than ever. I am hopeful for this season... but only because there's nothing wriong with hoping. But I'm not optimistic.

Whoa, the team that won the Super Bowl 5 years ago lost today! You know what that says about football? That says....um, that says.....does that say anything at all?

Someone apparently put a little TOOO much stock in a preseason game vs the chiefs. i like Wilson too - I think he'll learn and get better and be a good qb for a long time. But I think a SB championship his rookie season might be a bit much at this point.
 
2012-09-11 01:14:41 PM  
The teams you can count out are the same ones you could have counted out last week, or in August, or even April.

Browns
Bills
Dolphins
Rams
Seahawks
Jaguars
Titans
Colts
Chiefs
Raiders

And probably a few more. But none of those teams will come anywhere close to the Super Bowl.

I don't see why everyone thinks it's Carroll. He's a defensive guy who tends to let the OC do what the OC is supposed to do.

The O-line has been a problem for years on end but has been serviceable with Roethlisberger playing - as long as Arians wasn't handcuffing him with terrible play calling and refusing to let Roethlisberger take control.

The secondary has been an even bigger problem since 2001(?) and consistently is overlooked due to the typically above average pass rush.

It also hurts having one of the best pass rushers on the team out when the best way to beat Payton is to get in his face and put him on the ground.

I hate to say it but it's an 8-8 or 9-7 year. Probably get swept by the ratbirds too.

I don't disagree. The defense feels old. I miss Aaron Smith. I think the rest of the defense does too. There may be a playoff run or two left in this bunch - we'll see. I'll watch either way. As long as they go about their business the way they have for the last 40 years or so they'll be back eventually I suppose. I can wait.

Because an HC who has final say over all player matters should also, you know, call the OC and tell him what direction to go in? Even Belichick tells McDaniels, generally, what to do with the offense, and so on.
