Only 8 Undefeated Teams Left…

With the win over the Pats yesterday, the Jets celebrated like they won the Super Bowl IN week 2. WTF!?!

Now that we have two weeks in the books, there are some undefeated teams that look for real, and some that seem lucky to have two wins two weeks into the season. Surprisingly we are already down to only 8 teams that haven’t lost, and if the shocker of the weekend doesn’t happen with the 49ers taking down the Saints, it should stay that way. KC, Tampa, and Chicago are all shockers in my book, considering most people didn’t have them penciled in for their 2nd win before their respective bye weeks. Here’s my rankings for the top 8, with New Orleans in last, because the MNF game is still in progress, and they aren’t undefeated yet.

#1 Green Bay – The pack didn’t do anything to make me think that they aren’t a contender to make the Super Bowl this past weekend. By far the best all around team on the list. I think I’ll be picking them all year long no matter what the spread is. Remember that epic Patriots team that put up huge numbers every week like a video game in 2007? This team is looking like them, good all over the field.

#2 Pittsburgh – I’m not sure how they beat Tennessee and Atlanta, oh wait no, I do know why, their defense! They are 100-0 with Polamalu, and his $1M hair in the lineup. He is the X-factor much more than Big Ben is. The Steelers never have more than one down year, so this success is no fluke.

#3 Houston – Their win over the Colts was HUGE for their mentality going into the rest of the year. I picked them the last two years to make the playoffs, and now that I didn’t pick them, they are tearing it up, go figure…

#4 Chicago – There’s noway I thought the Bears would be good this year. Cutler hadn’t shown much of anything since the trade, but it looks like he finally found a couple of guys to throw to, and actually has the best passer rating in the league, no, that stat is not a typo. Enjoy the undefeated season while it last Bears fans, your next opponent is the Packers.

#5 Miami – Brandon Marshall is exactly what they needed. A receiver that teams will have to double team, and maybe open up a couple more running lanes! Their defense is actually better than I expected it to be too. Maybe all those young players are better than advertised. We will see exactly how good this Dolphins team is when they line up against the Jets this weekend.

#6 Tampa Bay – What!?! Freeman is leading the Bucs to a 2-0 start!?! I still can’t believe they curb stomped the Panthers this weekend, but low and behold this is a new Bucs team, and Freeman is much better than I thought well, his non-five interception game against Carolina made him look good. They need to beat a good team before I buy anything they are selling.

#7 Kansas City – Anyone can beat the Browns, but they beat the Chargers, and made them look bad for good portions of that game. They’ve been lacking a direction for years, and it looks like they might have found one on defense and special teams. Does that win you the AFC West? Maybe, but they will need something from the passing game…

#8 New Orleans – They are up 9-0 in the first quarter, but I can’t call that a win, because there’s a ton of time left. The Saints look like they should win if it keeps going the way it has so far though. A win would probably launch them into the top three knocking Houston down a spot, but we will see what kind of fight the Niners have in them for the final three quarters.

    The Bucs at 2-0. I think the town is still in shock.

    Although….

    If you look at their schedule, they beat a sucky Browns team, then a sucky Panthers team, and next week face a Steelers team that is still without their starting QB…

    So I’m calling for a 3-0 start for a team that will still miss the playoffs.

    Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

      I think you could say the same about Chiefs fans at this point! I don’t see them beating the Steelers. Freeman is going to have his worst game of the year against them. They look GREAT on defense!

      If they beat the Steelers with or without Ben, I’m buying them at least a little bit!

    There’s said to be a quarterback controversy brewing in Philly , Buffalo and with the Raiders ? Now what is it that seemingly these coaches don’t realize ? Isn’t it incumbent upon them to go with the best option that leads their respective teams to a win ?

    Wade Phillips , Brad Childress and Del Rio are on the “hot seat” even if the front offices of their respective teams aren’t liable to publicly say that .

    ‘melo to the Nets now seems to be latest rumor out there ? ESPN’s Chris Broussard however doesn’t believe that it’ll happen unless the player is willing to go.

      I somewhat questioned why Gradkowski wasn’t given a good shot at the starting job to open the season since he played so well when he was in there last season… I dunno what they’re going to do, but since Bruce won this week, I’d probably give him the start…

      I don’t think Childress is on the hot seat yet, but a couple more losses and he will be!

    After the Jets’ victory all of Cromartie’s kids are happy because that the only Christmas present they’ll be getting. Eight kids with six different kids and he’s still laying the ‘wood’ outside of his marriage. On a recent ESPN interview this dickhead couldn’t even remember the names of some of his kids. So much for his intelligence then ?

    The Bucs are doing it with smoking mirrors and they’re lucky that they”ve won two games this early in the season. Their run offense is absolutely hideous . They’re averaging under 4 yds per carry which tells you all that you need to know. Now they’re talking down here about going after Larry Johnson or Brandon Jacobs should he become available . Neither guy has the guts to perform as their game is now built towards running laterally across the field of play rather than through the tackles . They’ve become gutless !

    […] Pittsburgh -3, I rode Pittsburgh the first two weeks to two wins, and didn’t put them as the 2nd best undefeated team in my rankings for nothing! As I also said the Steelers are 100-0 with Polamalu in the lineup, so […]
