As is the cool thing to talk about on here, I planned to watch pretty much no football this weekend. I was gonna be all like, “Cardinals suck and adding an aging child beater sure ain’t gonna make me tune in!” but then Twitter didn’t give me a bunch of praise for this announcement so I decided to just sit on the couch and watch AP go off for 26/134/2. Also, since my dog just had a tumor removed, I was kind of glued to the house this weekend anyways.
Anyways, power rankings are all over the place after this weekend. Since I don’t run any kind of scientific model to balance all the rankings I do reference (big ‘eyeball test’ guy over here), I can’t really say with any confidence that these are what the ‘experts’ really think of the NFL this season.
Last week (Week 6):
Top 5: KC, ATL, GB, PHI, CAR
Bottom 5: SF, CLE, NYG, CHI, ARI
This week (Week 7):
Top 5: KC, ATL, PHI, CAR, PIT
Bottom 5: SF, CLE, CHI, IND, LAC
The Giants got a meaningful win and now New York/New Jersey is Bottom 5 Free! Then again, the Shitty Dirt Clippers de Casa sur la MLS beat the preseason darling Raiders and they still got bottom 5’d. For my two cents, I think Tampa Bay looks like absolute dog shit but that might be my “How’d you fucking give up 30+ to Arizona?!” bias. With the release of Navarro Bowman, it seems clear to me that SF is in full-on tank mode so CLE might have some competition for the Josh Rosen sweepstakes (who I also watched play JV Arizona this weekend and also looked unimpressive — perfect for Jed York’s 49ers.) At the top, well, 2017 is a season that, if you can make the post-season (looking at you, Dolphins), you can probably make a run.
Anyways, enough about me. Let’s get on to you and your Week 6 Quotables.
