NFL Week 6

Ok, I know I’ve been MIA for the past two weeks of NFL previews, but I’m back with a vengeance today. Last week was a great week of football, particularly if you watched the Denver-Dallas game. I had hoped for a good game from Dallas, and that’s for sure what we got. I got a bit nervous after Dallas went up 14-0, but Denver came back and it turned out to be one of the best games I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, Tony Romo has taken a ton of heat for that last pick, but I think it’s ridiculous to say he’s the reason Dallas lost that game. I think if the Cowboys’ offense can keep playing like they did on Sunday, they’ll be playing the Broncos again in February.  Anyways, we have some good games on the slate for Week 6, so let’s get to them.

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?

Peyton Manning to the Broncos

Peyton Manning visited the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals last week, and has some more teams scheduled over the next week or so. According to “Sources,” (Who is this “Sources” guy anyways?) Peyton has it narrowed down to four teams: The Broncos, Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, and Tennessee Titans.

Here’s why, as a Broncos’ fan, I want him to stay out of Denver:
