Let's Go Crazy

Unscripted NFL Power Rankings
2013 Week 4

You know what, it's fun to overreact. Not too much, but let's do it a little. So welcome to the Top 10 Chiefs, Dolphins, and Colts! So long 49ers, Falcons, and Texans! Is that kinda crazy? Probably. I certainly expect those latter teams to make a strong effort to re-enter the Top 10 (and the Ravens too), but for now, let's have some fun and let these young teams enjoy their moment in the spotlight.

Another New Team in the Top 10

Unscripted NFL Power Rankings
2013 Week 3

Another week of close games proves that anything can happen in the NFL and that aside from the Top 3 teams and the bottom few, pretty much any team can beat any other team, especially when it's still this early in the season. That's a big reason why I'm glad I just do a Top 10; I can't imagine trying to order 32 teams that can all seem so close sometimes. Honestly, even #8, #9, and #10 were really difficult to evaluate this week. I ended up taking a more conservative approach, but the outlandish side of me was giving serious consideration to not only the Colts, but the Chiefs, Dolphins, and Rams as well. Even so, there was one new team in the Top 10, the Bears, so let's see how everyone ranked. Hike!

Close Games Shift the Rankings

Unscripted NFL Power Rankings
2013 Week 2

The first week of football has come and gone. And it was a stressful week! Almost every game - aside from the Kansas City (playoff-bound) Chiefs blowout of the poor Jacksonville Jaguars - was really close. And those close games have shifted things in the rankings. The Ravens, who I had never really believed in but still ranked 8th last week after everyone else still held them in such high regard, have dropped out of the Top 10. Who replaced them? Was is the surprisingly quick Eagles (who reaffirmed my decision to take the Redskins out of the Top 10 the past couple weeks over now-justified concerns of a rusty RG3)? No, not yet, let's not overreact. The Bears? They're close, but not quite. It's the Saints, who beat the #4 ranked Atlanta Falcons. So where did they and everyone else land? Let's get to it. Hike!

Finally Football is Back!

Unscripted NFL Power Rankings
2013 Week 1

Preseason has come and gone and regular season is about to start! Nothing during the past 4 weeks happened to shake up the Top 10, but out of those, 7 teams are in different positions. Only the Texans, Packers, and Broncos are in the same spots as last time. And it was even even tougher decision to leave off the Redskins yet again, but RG3 still hasn't tested his leg against real opponents yet. If he looks fine, the Colts at #10 may need to expect the boot. But that's for later, let's see what we have now. Hike!
