Ryan Chell’s Rankings…

32. Kansas City Chiefs (1-9); LW-32

So…how long till they trade for Alex Smith?

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9); LW-31

Texans did them a favor by knocking out Blaine Gabbert…

30. Carolina Panthers (2-8); LW-29

2-7 in the NFC….

29. Cleveland Browns (2-8); LW-30

They might have a chance to beat Pittsburgh this weekend…

28. Oakland Raiders (3-7); LW-28

If only their defense played with half as much intensity as their offense…

27. Arizona Cardinals (4-6); LW-22

Beanie Wells is coming back…and is ready to take away carries from their best offensive weapon at this point.

26. Philadelphia Eagles (3-7); LW-20

I thought for sure the Redskins would make Nick Foles look like a star…

25. St. Louis Rams (3-6-1); LW-24

At least they’ll have the Redskins’ high pick next year too-along with their own.

24. Buffalo Bills (4-6); LW-27

Fred Jackson should be playing again this week…

23. New York Jets (3-6); LW-26

21. Tennessee Titans (4-6); LW-23

Jake Locker needs to build off his performance against the Dolphins.

“Hey Bandwagon! Let me off at the next stop…”

15. Indianapolis Colts (6-4); LW-14

A lot of teams get blown out by New England in Foxboro…

14. Minnesota Vikings (6-4); LW-13

5-1 on the year at home. Can definitely take advantage of Bears’ misfortunes…

13. Seattle Seahawks (6-4); LW-12

0-3 in their own division. That has to change…

12. New Orleans Saints (5-5); LW-15

Are they a playoff team? Beating twice in a couple weeks would go a long way…

Willis McGahee’s injury is a huge loss.

6. Baltimore Ravens (8-2); LW-7

Allowing Byron Leftwich to score and break his ribs on them was their plan all along..

The coaches and the players can say the right things, but they want Kaepernick as the QB.
