The Remaining QB Rankings

I firmly believe that, in order to make it through 3 or 4 games of NFL playoffs, a team must have a good quarterback. He doesn’t need to be elite, just good. Big Ben fits in here, but Christian Ponder does not. So, with 8 teams remaining in the playoffs, I will rank the QBs for each team. This ranking is based solely on my trust in the QB, in general, not necessarily for their matchup this week. Here goes:

8.) Colin Kaepernick– It’s his first playoff game. I’m not sure what to expect out of him yet.

7.) Matt Schaub- He got his first playoff win last week. I don’t trust him to take me all the way.

Tie-6.) Russell Wilson- He’s only this low because he’s a rookie.

Tie-6.) Matt Ryan- Matt Ryan has fewer playoff wins than Tony Romo. I’m not sure why, but the Falcons are 0-3 in the playoffs under Matt Ryan.

4.) Joe Flacco- He hasn’t been to the big game yet, but Flacco has some good-to-great wins in the postseason.

3.) Tom Brady- I know he is probably higher in everyone else’s book, but he hasn’t won a SB since 2005. That’s 7 seasons.

2.) Peyton Manning- Peyton is the best QB right now, in my opinion,but he has much more help than most other QBs in the playoffs. 

1.) Aaron Rodgers- Aaron is currently the scariest QB in the league right now. He has to make the Packers win, because they have nothing else.

How would you rank the QBs that will be playing today and tomorrow?

Week 17

I’m pretty sad football season is coming to an end. Of course, we still have the playoffs, which means plenty of time for fun stories and exciting games. No matter what happens, we have some great stories already in the books from the 2012 NFL season:

Week 11 Quick Hits- Now With 94% More NBA!

As I’ve made pretty clear here, I’m a pretty biased writer. Sometimes I try not to be, but when we talk about the certain teams I can’t help it. As a Spurs fan, we have plenty of rivals. My favorite rival is probably the Mavericks, followed by our newest rival, the Thunder. I love those games. But, then there are the teams I hate. The Jazz used to be on the top of the list, but they aren’t any good anymore. Now my most hated rival comes out of LA. There is literally not another team I hate more than the Lakers. I hate everyone on their team. I got really sad when Steve Nash went there because I used to really like the guy. Anyways, the events of this past week really made me happy. I think it’s hilarious to fire a coach after 5 games. That’s like an NFL team firing their coach after Week 1. Outrageous  And then the whole Phil Jackson fiasco had me in stitches. I was actually worried about the Lakers getting him back, but the situation worked out for the best for my Spurs (who again, nobody seems to remember). On a more serious note, I think the Lakers’ problem is personnel, not coaching. Nash, Kobe, and Dwight are not complimentary players. The Lakers have pulled a Cowboys and just got big names that don’t fit together at all. Some other thoughts from this week:

Quick Hits- Week 10

It’s crazy, with all this parity in the league, that we still have teams as terrible as the Kansas City Chiefs. Did you realize that they have never led in regular time? The only game they won they did so in overtime, and the final score was their only lead. They even attempted to start Brady Quinn for a game or two. I have some other questions for you guys:

Week 4 In Review

Well, guys, I went 0-4 again in my fantasy football leagues. I’m not sure why I suck so bad. It’s really all-or-nothing for my teams. Either they all perform well, or they all are terrible. There is no in between.

Why I Don’t Feel Bad For The Packers-Week 3 In Review

Week 3 is hopefully the last straw for the NFL replacement refs. I feel like the games are getting more and more unwatchable as time goes on. And since the refs are starting to really affect games, I think the NFL will quickly get an agreement done. Nobody wants to talk about referees after the game, we all want to talk about the players.
