“The Reality Check” Week 2 NFL Power Rankings

September 11, 2013 | Glenn Clark

Ryan Chell’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1; LW-30)

They’re better with Chad Henne at QB. But they still suck.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1; LW-26)

Wait…you lost to the Jets?

30. Oakland Raiders (0-1; LW-32)

Terrelle Pryor could be an intriguing weapon for them…

29. New York Jets (1-0; LW-31)

They were just less-stupid than the Bucs.

28. Buffalo Bills (0-1; LW-29)

Gave New England a run for their money…

27. Cleveland Browns (0-1; LW-27)

Brandon Weeden returned to form.

26. Arizona Cardinals (0-1; LW-25)

Their defense will continue to carry them. Only now instead of punts offensively, it will be Carson Palmer turnovers.

25. Tennessee Titans (1-0; LW-28)

They’re SO good…they figured they’d spot Pittsburgh two points on the opening kickoff.

24. San Diego Chargers (0-1; LW-24)

They blew a 20-point lead? THERE’s the Chargers we all know and love!

23. Minnesota Vikings (0-1; LW-21)

Christian Ponder sucks. There I said it.

22. Detroit Lions (1-0; LW-23)

I don’t think they’re any better than the Vikings either.

21. Carolina Panthers (0-1; LW-22)

Gave Seattle a heart-attack…

20. Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1; LW-11)

Have they scored yet?

19. St. Louis Rams (1-0; LW-20)

Jared Cook could be the steal of the off-season.

18. Washington Redskins (0-1; LW-13)


17. Kansas City Chiefs (1-0; LW-15)

Not dropping them due to performance…

16. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0; LW-19)

The question will be if they can keep it up…

15. Miami Dolphins (1-0; LW-18)

If they beat Indy, they’ll continue to keep me sniffing…

14. Dallas Cowboys (1-0; LW-17)

Ready for a rise; also could have a fall…

13. Chicago Bears (1-0; LW-16)

An offensive coach could be the best thing for Jay Cutler…

12. Baltimore Ravens (0-1; LW-7)

Did have a halftime lead against the Broncos…

11. New York Giants (0-1, LW;10)

Maybe Tiki Barber is available to run the football for them?

10. Cincinnati Bengals (0-1; LW-8)

Slip up on the road against the Bears. Still on board.

9. Indianapolis Colts (1-0; LW-14)

Andrew Luck goes back home this week.

8. New England Patriots (1-0, LW-9)

Which was more louder? Shane Vereen’s arm break or Stevan Ridley’s sigh of relief?

7. Atlanta Falcons (0-1; LW-6)

The bad Matt Ryan showed up at the end of the game vs. Saints.

6. New Orleans Saints (1-0; LW-12)

Their defense looks *better.

5. Seattle Seahawks (1-0; LW-2)

Dont forget they went on the road and underestimated an up-and-coming Panthers team.

4. Houston Texans (1-0; LW-4)

A RB controversy in Houston?

3. Denver Broncos (1-0; LW-5)

Peyton Manning on pace to throw a million touchdowns.

2. Green Bay Packers (0-1; LW-1)

They beat the Niners at home.

1. San Francisco 49ers (1-0; LW-3)

Colin Kaepernick and Anquan Boldin appear to be on the same page…(that was my observation last week; umm…can we do mulligans on that Boldin deal?)

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
