The Reality Check Week 15 NFL Power Rankings

16. Oakland Raiders (LW:  15)

They need more boar hunters.

15. San Diego Chargers (LW:  20)

I’m REALLY concerned.

14. Tennessee Titans (LW:  10)

The issue for the Titans moving forward is that the expectations will be high for Jake Locker without having much experience.

13. Detroit Lions (LW:  12)

There would be no excuse to lose in Tampa Saturday night.

12. Dallas Cowboys (LW:  11)

I don’t really believe they’re this good.

11. New York Giants (LW:  14)

I’m just not REALLY buying into the whole “dark horse” thing.

10. Atlanta Falcons (LW:  13)

I’m really buying into the whole “dark horse” thing.

9. New York Jets (LW:  9)

Going on the road hasn’t bothered them in the past.

8. Denver Broncos (LW:  8)

If they beat the Pats all bets are off.

7. San Francisco 49ers (LW:  6)

Is anyone going to pick them to win their first playoff game?

6. Houston Texans (LW:  7)

I was wrong. Still dangerous.

5. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW:  5)

This week Ben Roethlisberger is just going to play in a cast.

4. New England Patriots (LW:  3)

Getting “Gronk’d” hurts.

3. Baltimore Ravens (LW:  4)

I wish I could grow a mustache.

2. New Orleans Saints (LW:  2)

That was a nice win for them in Nashville.

1. Green Bay Packers (LW:  1)

Just for the record, Charm City’s Shaky Smithson gets a ring if they win the Super Bowl.

  1. The "Armchair QB" Says:

    I’m waiting for a defensive coordinator to figure out that Tebow is less dangerous/effective if forced to stay in the pocket because he’s not very accurate. I understand from having watched running QBs over the years how difficult that can be, but it appears to be the best way to “contain” him…… Also, not necessarily in defense of James Harrison’s hit on McCoy, but the fact is that the QB was out of the pocket and running when he abruptly pulled up at the line of scrimmage to make his throw. By that time, Harrison already had him in his sights and, if I’m not mistaken, there is no “helmet-to-helmet” prohibition against runners. Unless, of course, QBs get different treatment. But when a QB leaves the pocket and is running, he has two choices, “slide” or get hit like any other runner!
