The Reality Check Week 17 NFL Power Rankings

December 28, 2011 | Glenn Clark


Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. St. Louis Rams (Last Week:  32)

This team beat the New Orleans Saints. You’ll never understand the NFL.

31. Indianapolis Colts (LW:  31)

I never root for the Colts, but I hope they win one more.

30. Minnesota Vikings (LW:  30)

They can’t get Andrew Luck, but they’ll still have some interesting decisions to make in the offseason.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars (LW:  29)

The handful of Jags fans on the planet are pulling for their team to lose Sunday.

28. Cleveland Browns (LW:  28)

There is NO reason for Colt McCoy to start Sunday. Go Browns.

27. Washington Redskins (LW:  27)

London Fletcher was absolutely a Pro Bowl snub. If he was on a decent team he wouldn’t have been.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW:  24)

What a mess.

25. Chicago Bears (LW:  22)

But they’ll (probably) be a contender again in 2012.

24. Buffalo Bills (LW:  25)

Where was that the last two months?

23. Carolina Panthers (LW:  26)

This will be a sexy “dark horse” team in 2012.

22. Kansas City Chiefs (LW:  21)

So…what do they do at quarterback?

21. Miami Dolphins (LW:  23)

And what do THEY do at quarterback?

20. Arizona Cardinals (LW:  20)

Lost in Jerome Simpson fever was the fact that the Cards almost rallied in Cincy.

19. Philadelphia Eagles (LW:  18)

I guess Andy Reid survives?

18. San Diego Chargers (LW:  8)

What a difference a week makes.

17. Seattle Seahawks (LW:  16)

I think highly of everything about this franchise except their quarterback.

    Patriots at 5? This from the man who thinks (not unreasonably) that a 6’5″+ receiver is the secret to success? Who on the Ravens, or most any other NFL team, stops Gronkowski? I think the Patriots easily beat the ‘Niners and the Ravens. Can’t argue much with the rest of your rankings.

    Go Steelers!

    (Edit from GMC: I had the Pats 4th, ahead of the Ravens. They might well be better than the Niners too…honestly.)

    Your right – sorry about that. I was looking at Ryan’s rankings. No arguments then with your rankings.

    Good show today in the 5 o’clock hour with VW

    (Edit from GMC: Believe me, I’m VERY worried about Gronkowski. And thanks!)

    Dang it! should have said “You’re right”

    Is this the season where Marvin Lewis starts getting recognition as being a seriously good head coach? I think that’s a pretty fair ranking for that team. He’s survived the tumultuous run of PacMan and Ochocinco and all the other “knuckleheads”, now he’s got some fresh faces and these guys are ballin’…but hopefully not this weekend…
