“The Reality Check” Week 4 NFL Power Rankings

September 26, 2012 | Glenn Clark

Ryan Chell’s Rankings…

32. Cleveland Browns (0-3); LW-32

Can I just write 0-4?

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2); LW-31

They are in 2nd place in the AFC South.

30. Tennessee Titans (1-2); LW-28

Their defense has allowed the most points in the NFL.

29. Oakland Raiders (1-2); LW-30

Raider Nation-Baltimore thanks you.

28. Miami Dolphins (1-2); LW-26

Reggie Bush plays well and then gets hurt…

27. St. Louis Rams (1-2); LW-25

They lost to Jay Cutler.

26. Indianapolis Colts (1-2); LW-24

I still like them better than Jacksonville despite the loss…

25. Kansas City Chiefs (1-2); LW-29

Hand the ball to Jamaal Charles 50 times.

24. Minnesota Vikings (2-1); LW-27

Over the weekend, I said FSU QBs never do well in the NFL. Christian Ponder somehow heard me and beat the 49ers.

23. New Orleans Saints (0-3); LW-10

I’ve run out of excuses for this team.

22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2); LW-20

Maybe if they practiced running plays instead of practicing how to hit QBs in the victory formation, they might win games.

21. Carolina Panthers (1-2); LW-19

They have to sure up that defense and Cam Newton can’t turn the ball over.

20. Washington Redskins (1-2); LW-17

You sacrificed three first-round picks for Robert Griffin III and you have him running QB-reads? This is a dumb organization…

19. Buffalo Bills (2-1); LW-23

Fred Jackson hurt. C.J. Spiller hurt. Tashard Choice…you’re up.

18. Seattle Seahawks (2-1); LW-22

Get Golden Tate off the record and ask him if he caught that ball…

17. New York Jets (2-1); LW-16

Dropped them because Darrelle Revis being out for the year is a huge blow to this team…

16. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2); LW-14

They lost to Oakland (giggles)…

15. San Diego Chargers (2-1); LW-13

This team will choke eventually…

14. Dallas Cowboys (2-1); LW-9

Tampa Bay gave them a run for their money…

13. Denver Broncos (1-2); LW-11

They’ve lost to Atlanta and Houston. They still get a pass thanks to Peyton Manning being on their team

12. Detroit Lions (1-2); LW-8

An early bye week helps this team immensely. They also may have found a RB…

11. Chicago Bears (2-1); LW-15

This team can implode at any moment though

10. Cincinnati Bengals (2-1); LW-21

The whooping they got Week 1 probably shows how good the Ravens are, not how bad the Bengals were.

9. Green Bay Packers (2-1); LW-6

Aaron Rodgers and company probably are asking themselves the same thing Yahoo! Sports’ Mike Silver asked Rodgers after the game (look it up)…

8. Arizona Cardinals (3-0); LW-18

Their wins have to taken into account. And yes-this defense is that good at causing turnovers.

7.  Philadelphia Eagles (2-1); LW-4

I put this team behind the Ravens and ahead of the Cardinals because I think if those teams played 9/10 times, the result would be different.

6. New England Patriots (1-2); LW-5

Bill Belichick got too cute Sunday vs the Ravens. Enjoy the 1-2 start Bill, and why don’t you cry about it some more…

5. Baltimore Ravens (2-1); LW-7

I wonder what a 1-2 start would have done to this team.

4. New York Giants (2-1); LW-12

Hakeem Nicks, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Victor Cruz are all banged up, and this team doesn’t miss a beat with the likes of Andre Brown and Ramses Barden.

3. San Francisco 49ers (2-1); LW-1

They stubbed their toe against the Vikings. Alex Smith threw his first INT Sunday against the Vikings in 10 months. This team will be fine.

2. Atlanta Falcons (3-0); LW-3

This team is so good-a West Coast trip against a good Chargers team didn’t force them to miss a beat.

1.  Houston Texans (3-0); LW-2

Not even Matt Schaub losing part of his ear could stop this team.

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
