Looks like ESPN is finally looking at this season instead of last. There are a lot of big rises and drops.

This week's GRAF will look interesting.

Jacksonville does better than the 49ers against the Seahawks

How is losing by 28 against a team that played mostly backups late in the game better than losing by 26 against a team that kept its foot on the pedal the whole time?

Wow...they had to reeeeeeally work to get the Jets up with the other 2-1 teams.  Maybe they need to try to balance the fact that they still have 3 1-2 teams in the top 12.

Jets are too damn high.  Their #32 ranking to start the season was always stupid, but they're not as good as #18 either.  They belong in the 22-25 range.  They wouldn't beat Carolina or San Diego or (probably) St. Louis or (probably) Philly on a neutral field.

The NFC East has as many teams over .500 as the NFC West.

How the hell are the Vikings ranked above the Raiders, Steelers and Giants at this point?

[RANT]

CITATIONS:

Well the Special Teams are awful since last week we gave up almost 300 return yards to Hester and this week fell for a fake FG and fake Punt IN THE SAME HALF. Like we're playing Madden or something. That's coaching as much as anything.

The Defense is not having success stopping the run and has given up 2 game winning touchdowns in the last 3 minutes of a ball game twice in a row. That's all scheme right there. We go soft and people just eat us up. Coaching.

Our offense is not having success getting Adrian to go off, as teams have figured out the shiat we were pulling last year and Ponder simply cannot make defenses pay for it in the passing game. That's on Ponder. Jennings is open. On top of that, our offense has no new wrinkles EVER. We a re predicatble as all hell. How about some 3 WR, 1 RB sets or something? Spice it up a little! Get Patterson out there a little more THAT way. Oh and our OL Guards have really sucked it up this year and can;t pass protect.

Our Head Coach simply cannot get it done. Last wekk he admitted to knowing the D we were in to end the game was the wrong one and he STILL didn;t call a timeout. This week he challenged a frickin turnover. EVERYONE KNOWS THE FULES TO CHALLENGES EXCEPT OUR FRICKIN HEAD COACH. On top of that, I worked the Vikes game yesterday. I got done with my cleaning and steppped into the walkway and watched that last drive. So after Captain McDinkAndDunk get's us to around the 40 and there is about 2 seconds left in the game, it's Hail Mary time right? Who do you think should be out there? Maybe the 6'2" athletic WR you spent 3 draft picks getting? Hmmmmm? But NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Fraizer has him come off the field! (of course, Ponder never got the pass off, it's still the frickin principle).

Texans drop 9 spots. I'm okay with this. How many do we rise after beating Seattle and San Fran back-to-back?
 
2013-09-24 12:59:52 PM  
Wow, Texans took a tumble.

Although I can't argue with their placement. They shat the bed on Sunday against the Ravens, and it's only gonna get harder from here. Our special teams is a joke right now (as it was last year), and Shaub just seems to fall apart. He's too damn slow.

I still got faith, and always will, but I'm not gonna deny the reality right now

hammer85: Raiders don't get completely blown out by denver, goes down a spot.


It seems weird that they are below the Giants and Redskins.  Oakland has definitely looked better than those two in the first three games of the season.  Hell, the Raiders put up a better fight against the Colts than the other Bay Area team.

Also,

Redskins fans take solace: they were 1-2 in 2000, then reeled off 5 straight wins.

They then went 1-6 and finished 8-8, but they won 5 in a row!

HaywoodJablonski: Texans drop 9 spots. I'm okay with this. How many do we rise after beating Seattle and San Fran back-to-back?


Beating the 49-ers doesn't count for much right now, and a Texans team lead by Schaub w/o Andre isn't going to beat the Trollhawks

Treygreen13: czetie: *Now* can we officially call it the NFC Least?

True, but they are the only division with two 0-3 teams (the NFC West have none) and are 1-7 outside of their division (the NFC West is 4-4).  Just because Dallas is decent doesn't mean the rest of that division is good.

The Patriots almost lost to Buffalo and the Jets, then beat the number 31 team that LOST to the Jets.

Up 2 to number 5.

Well you DID play the Cardinals and the  Bucs.

Not exactly powerhouses.

I mean, the Falcons win suggests it's legit of course. I would like to see you do it against Miami and Chicago too before we decide the D has been fixed.
 
2013-09-24 01:06:26 PM  
The Panthers sacked Eli Manning seven times Sunday, third most in Eli's career. New York's 13 turnovers lead the league, a total it didn't hit until Week 10 last year.

Chiefs lead the league in sacks and turnover differential. This means one of two things. Next week is gonna be fun. Or I'm about to get horribly disappointed.

Hi all, it's now time for the return of the Faultlessly Accurate RanKing (or Faulty And Inaccurate Listing, depending on preference) system that nobody cares about but me. This year is starting off strangely:

1: Seattle (1)
2: T- Miami (7)
T- Kansas City (8)
T- New Orleans (3)
5: Denver* (2)
6: New England (5)
7: Chicago (4)
8: Baltimore (11)
9: Cincinnati (6)
10: Dallas (15)
11: Indianapolis (9)
12: Tennessee (17)
T- New York Jets (18)
14: Houston (13)
15: Detroit (16)
16: Atlanta (14)
17: Arizona (22)
18: San Diego (19)
19: Oakland (30)
20: Green Bay (12)
21: Buffalo (24)
22: Carolina (21)
23: Cleveland (25)
24: Philadelphia (23)
25: San Francisco (10)
26: St. Louis (20)
27: Tampa Bay (31)
28: Pittsburgh (28)
29: Minnesota (26)
T- Jacksonville (32)
31: Washington (27)
32: New York Giants (29)

numbers in parentheses are ESPN ranks

*I know, Denver looks better than the three tied above them, but the strength of victory of their opponents has been weaker, so they get less credit for being 3-0.

The 49ers are too damn high: -15 compared to ESPN
The Raiders are too damn low: +11 compared to ESPN

The Giants are a random Eli Manning heave off his back foot into quadruple coverage which inexplicably wedges itself through the defenders and into Victor Cruz's testicles for a TD away from rattling off like five wins in a row, so I'll never count them out.

And you know damn well the Giants could play the Patriots tomorrow and they would win, because that's just what they do.

Really? They beat the Falcons and Colts, they've earned that spot for now.

Conversely, look at NE...They've beat Tampa, Jets, and Buffalo. Tough to get more of a cake schedule than that, but they're currently ranked 5th.
 
2013-09-24 01:09:48 PM  

Jim from Saint Paul: Maybe the 6'2" athletic WR you spent 3 draft picks getting?


That's not tall for a WR.  Brandon Marshall is listed at 6'4" (he's probably taller, Cutler is 6'3").  Martellus Bennett is 6'6".  Not that it really matter, Ponder is a terrible quarterback who can't stretch the field.

/everybody praising the Bears defense and ignoring the Jay Cutler led offense, which has improved night and day over last year, in particular the offensive line, which is no longer offensive like they were under Tice

I'm a bit worried for visiting Detroit.  Our secondary has been spotty, it looks like Tillman hasn't been 100% all season, especially at Pittsburgh, and Jennings can't do it all by himself.  Tillman's the only guy on the defense who can stop Megatron.  Hopefully the Steeler's game was a big confidence booster, and Trestman opens up the playbook a bit, going on the road against a divisional opponent.

We'll settle this this Sunday. Vikings. Steelers. 0-3 v. 0-3 for all the one win. In London. This time it's personal...ly pretty sad.

But hey we'll know which team is really 28th and which is really 25th.

In defense of the Texans:

After 5 games we will have played:
1. The surprisingly competent Chargers in their house LATE on Monday night
2. The surprisingly decent Titans
3. The suddenly adequate Ravens
4. Trollhawks
5. 49ers

That's a tough, tough opening schedule.
 
2013-09-24 01:14:42 PM  
You know who's impressed me? Well, besides the Broncos, that is?

The Bengals. That's a team that should fare well in cold-weather playoff games, which will kinda be important in the AFC this year.

what do ye think?

They had nine defensive TDs last season.  With an improved offense, they're going to force more teams to pass to overcome deficits/keep up with Cutler.  That's more opportunities for Jennings, Tillman, Briggs, Wright, etc., who had 7/8 of the teams INT return TDs last year.
