Week 8 Power Rankings

635500510685090108-c02-final-redskins-1028
1. Broncos - Last year San Diego stunned the Broncos on a Thursday night by dominating the time of possession and keeping Peyton neutralized on the sideline. But with a healthy Von Miller and an assortment of new players on the defensive side of the ball, it's much harder to play keep away with this year's Denver squad. Halfway through the season already and there still doesn't look to be anybody's more likely to represent the AFC than the same team as last year.
2. Cardinals - Arizona put up their most impressive win of the year as rookie standout John Brown took a game winning touchdown pass from Carson Palmer to stun the Eagles this week. The Cardinals are for real and with all of the weapons on offense they've acquired, it looks like they finally have enough scoring potential to keep up with their impressive defense.
3. Cowboys - Even the most die hard Cowboys fan had to be a little skeptical of Dallas’ newfound dominance, expecting a fall from grace around every corner and Washington seemed to deliver it sooner rather than later. And though I don’t really think this changes things for the Cowboys all that much, it certainly serves as a startling reminder of how fragile their quarterback really is.
4. Patriots - If there's one thing Bill Belichic is still good at, it's exposing a flawed team's biggest flaw. And up against the Bears, all you have to choose is which flaw you want to attack. Brady had another incredible first half of football, throwing 5 touchdowns in the first half as the Pats put up 50+ on a Bears defense that is a complete shell of its former self and with the offense under performing, there's no mercy against a team as surgical as the Patriots can be. And did now that the passing game looks to have finally found its groove, whether it be a finally healthy Gronk or budding chemistry with Wright and LaFell, this team looks pretty lethal.
5. Eagles - Philly played an incredibly tight game with the feisty Cardinals but ultimately Arizona's secondary, which had come under fire after the previous few weeks, outplayed the Eagles'. McCoy, Maclin, and Foles all had big games but it wasn't enough to overcome the seemingly unstoppable Larry Fitzgerald who scorched the Eagles all game long, leaving John Brown open for the game winner.
6. Colts - Lets make sure and clarify one thing - just because the Colts have one of the offenses in the league, their issues at offensive line haven't evaporated. And a less than stellar Pittsburgh defense reminded us all of that by putting Andrew Luck on blast all game long. And the only Colts getting burned worse than Luck were the Colts defensive backs, who made Antonio Brown look like the Antonio Brown we've been waiting to return since week 1.
7. Ravens - Baltimore got robbed. I hate to be the guy to blame the outcome of a game on the officiating but Steve Smith caught the game winning touchdown pass and had it taken away on a bogus pass interference call that hadn't been called all game long. If nothing else, officiating has to be consistent. Baltimore's defense looked like the Ravens of old forcing consecutive takeaways to erase an 11 point defect in a flash, it's just a shame their comeback drive couldn't have been completed due to inconsistent officiating.
8. 49ers - Finally it seems that someone other than San Fran is getting off the field headlines in the NFC West. And it's just the team they need to be distracted so the 9ers can remain active in the playoff hunt. The bye week also provides some much needed time for this banged up squad to recover from their plethora of injuries. I expect the 9ers to really start gaining momentum here in the second half of the season.
9. Lions - Detroit finally caught a break on special teams as the Lions got a second chance at a game winning field goal, 5 yards further back. Of course this one went through and completed the 22 point comeback over the struggling Falcons whose meltdown looked like something the Lions would have done in past years. But this team is clearly a different squad under Caldwell.
10. Chargers - Brandon Oliver had a few decent games early on but was absolutely nullified against Denver as the Chargers never established the run game that lead to victory over the Broncos last year. But San Diego remained competitive and didn't flinch staring down the AFC's best, behind another amazing performance by Philip Rivers, who gets my midseason MVP.
11. Steelers - Pittsburgh's shown glimpses of how impressive their offense can be running at full strength but I don't think anyone expected the Steelers to put up 50+ on a team that held Cinci scoreless the week prior. When Bell and Brown are in rhythm this team is absolutely lethal but don't think that Pitt's defense is fixed just because they were all over Andrew Luck all game long. The Colts have no run support and an incredibly shaky offensive line and the Steelers did a hell of a job taking advantage of that. Plus having that Head & Shoulders spokesman play his best game all season doesn't hurt either.
12. Chiefs - Kansas City ran wild on the Rams' unimpressive secondary, with franchise best rusher Jamaal Charles climbing to the top of an impressive list of running backs in Chiefs' history. Alex Smith also continues his efficient yet reserved approach, with only 4 incompletions and 250 yards. But as good as Charles is, he's got to expand his game to more than a game manager eventually if they want to be taken seriously in the surprisingly deep AFC playoff race.
13. Seahawks - Seattle's offense is struggling out there. And if Marshawn Lynch is already on his way out the door, I can't imagine it's going to get any better because he's the most reliable piece they have. Wilson's nice and all but he's not carrying this team with the group of receivers he's got. And with the pass rush unraveling, this team may be struggling for a playoff berth at this point. And yeah, I know they won this week but it was a hideous game. 13-9 over the Panthers with a last second touchdown to erase a 3 point defecit? That's not convincing me this team can be the first Superbowl winner to win more than 1 playoff game in the following season since the Patriots dynasty did it back in the mid-00's.
14. Saints - Drew Brees went off on the incompetent Packers secondary but the real sign of progress from New Orleans was Mark Ingram's career day running the ball, showing a new found commitment to the run from the previously one dimensional Saints. Brandon Cooks had his best game since week one and the defense put up their best game of the year against one of the best offenses in the league. Seeing this is a startling reminder that the season's only halfway over and the Saints are still right in line to take control of the struggling NFC South.
15. Bengals - The Bengals got their first win since starting 3-0 to reclaim sole possession of first place in the AFC North but I still think the Ravens are the better team. Dalton's all over the place and without A.J. Green he's completely unreliable.
16. Packers - As good as the Packers looked last week, I can't say that I'm surprised to see the Saints dump all over their incredibly sloppy secondary this week. Rogers is carrying this team but what else is new? It seems McCarthy had more of a commitment to the running game when they didn't have a reliable back just to catch opposing defenses off guard. Eddie Lacey's been completely under utilized this season and could really help Rogers when he starts to struggle like he did against New Orleans.
17. Bills - Buffalo benched their 2013 drafted QB earlier this season and forced the Jets to follow suit after picking off more Geno Smith passes than he completed in the Jets' terrible start on Sunday. Buffalo's defense remained relentless, attacking anyone the Jets had under center as Sammy Watkins had another breakout game racking up 40 points on a once renounced Rex Ryan defense. Buffalo may be a sneaky wildcard contender but I'm not sure they can keep up this kind of scoring output with just Kyle Orton to rely on, so hopefully their running backs' Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller aren't missing too much more time.
18. Texans - DeMarco murray isn't the only running back in Texas with a 100 yard game streak, Arian Foster just ran for his fourth straight as another streak in Houston ended with the Texans snapping out of their 3 game losing streak against the hapless Titans. But bad teams like the Titans are always a good way to inflate a mediocre team's ego.
19. Browns - Avoiding another humiliating loss, Cleveland's defense finally stepped up and sealed a win over the winless Raiders on Sunday. As the rest of the AFC North seems to be waking up, Cleveland looks to be slipping into coma as if their biological clock knows that this is about the time of year where their season becomes irrelevant again.
20. Panthers - Carolina's defense looked much tighter against Seattle this week but they still can't seem to get their offense going. Which is what we expected after the team dumped their entire receiving corps but as bad as the passing game, the running game has been even worse. They really don't have anything to hang their hats on and with the Saints starting to come out of their coma, this could be the turning point in the season where Carolina's loose grip on the NFC South starts to slip.
21. Dolphins - Miami needed all the help they could get to get their first set of consecutive wins this season against one of the league's worst teams. Yeah, I'm not too convinced either. Even though the Jags' defense is better than they get credit for, they're still not good enough to make Tannehill look that marginal. He's been incredibly inconsistent this season and has a lot to prove if we're to believe he's a franchise QB.
22. Rams - Kansas City scored 34 straight on the Rams, running wild on the Rams' secondary that struggles to hold even the largest of leads. Especially when the Chiefs' defense held the St. Louis offense virtually helpless running the ball and passing, despite Austin Davis' early touchdown. Probably still coming down off last week's high, beating the reigning Superbowl champs, the Rams had a harsh fall back to reality this week.
23. Giants - With the way the Redskins are playing, the Giants clearly aren't the worst team in their division but they're also nowhere near the best. The team's in transition and still needs to rebuild their defense before they can really compete with Philly and Dallas. Also a secondary back for the injury prone Rashad Jennings looks like a priority as well. New York's offense just never recovered after losing Jacobs and Bradshaw.
24. Bears - If you hadn't cancelled your playoff plans for the Bears yet, I think Tom Brady just erased any last hope you might have been clinging to. I know I know, you wanted to look like a genius picking Chicago to win the Superbowl after how good their receivers looked last year with Josh McCown but the defense is absolutely atrocious. I know it's Tom Brady and all but giving up that kind of yardage to a barely better than average offense is unbelievable. Chicago's got some serious rebuilding to do on the defensive side of the ball but even more troubling is the way their offense has imploded under Jay Cutler as well.
25. Vikings - In a weekend that had multiple teams scoring in the 50's, Tampa Bay and Minnesota nearly went into halftime with the first scoreless half of football since 2011. And as improved as the Vikings' defense is, their offense is struggling. Bridgewater looked way too cautious, throwing check-down pass after check-down pass until finally the Vikes' other first round draft pick won the game in over time by stripping Mike Evans and taking it to the house for a touchdown. Anthony Barr's been an absolute beast for this Vikings defense and has done more than enough to make all the skeptics (like me, who shouted "WHO!?" on draft night) eat their words.
26. Redskins - With absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain in the national spotlight in Dallas, Washington gambled all game long by sending blitz after blitz after Tony Romo and it paid off immensely. Their plan of taking Romo out of the game worked almost literally when the qb exited reinjuring his back, only to return late in the game with less than convincing results. Regardless of who the Cowboys’ quarterback was, you gotta feel good for Colt McCoy getting a major win like that. Even if his success is only momentary.
27. Falcons - Atlanta blew a 21-0 lead in London this weekend that pretty much summed up their entire first half of the season. The team can score but their defense can't hold anybody. And as big a disappointment as Stephen Jackson's been, they can't really hold many leads without a running game either. Good thing I kept all my supplies for the Mike Smith farewell party I was planning on last year because it looks like the only sure thing in Atlanta at this point.
28. Buccaneers - Tampa Bay's offense looked absolutely un watchable Sunday against a Vikings team who couldn't muster much on offense themselves. So when the two dismal teams headed into over time, it's really no surprise that it was the defense that put in the first touchdown to end this exercise in mediocrity. I'd say the defense looked better but against the Vikings, so do most.
29. Jets - Geno Smith is deteriorating very quickly in New York and I don't know how much blind support Rex Ryan can continue to give the second year quarterback without ruining his own reputation in the process. Throwing more picks than completions this week, Geno got benched for Mike Vick who didn't look a whole hell of a lot better. The Jets have a knack for grabbing multiple mediocre quarterbacks don't they? I wonder if they'd reach back out to Tebow at this point?
30. Titans - I fully support ditching Chris Johnson but you've got to have a replacement lined up. This team's running game is absolutely atrocious and throwing Mettenberger out to the wolves for his first NFL start seems cowardly, especially against the vicious Texans' defense. But you can't blame the Titans I guess, I'd be tired of trying to sell your fan base that you've got a chance to win with Charlie Whitehurst starting too. And even though Mettenberger had a couple turnovers, he did show flashes of promise. But there's too many flaws in this Titans team for any young quarterback to find success right now.
31. Jaguars - Blake Bortles seems to be taking the blunt of the blame for Jacksonville's struggles but I don't think anyone could be expected to perform under that offensive line, let alone a rookie with no run support and C+ receivers. Bortles isn't the problem, he's part of the solution in Jacksonville so lighten up. Most rookies can't come in and turn around a franchise as fast as Andrew Luck, so chill.
32. Raiders - Looking like they might be the second winless team in a row to take down the Browns, Oakland gave up a go ahead touchdown and Darren McFadden fumble to keep the 0 in the win column the most consistent part of the 2014 Raiders.

THE CLONE WARS EPISODE XLVIII: Frankenweenie v.s. Hotel Transylvania v.s. ParaNorman

Hotel-transylvania-001

When you stop and look at the landscape of kid friendly Halloween films, there really isn't much there. The line between way too cutesy and way too intense is hard to toe. Stuff like Gremlins, Beetlejuice, and The Monster Squad were perfectly digestible for me as a kid but in today's hyper sensative and overly politcally correct culture, stuff like that isn't labeled "kid friendly" anymore. And in 2012 we recieved a trio of Halloween themed animated flicks within about 40 days to fill that void. But who came out on top? Let the voting begin!

CAST

I love Adam Sandler. Okay loved. But I'm willing to forgive him if he can cut shit like this out of his resume. Hotel Transylvania's his most offensively bad voice to date. It's cringe worthy. But then again, this is coming from someone who actually liked Little Nicky and didn't hate That's My Boy, so maybe I just finally found my flavor of Sandler disdain. But yeah, his voice poisons the entire film for me. Sorry Samberg, you hitched your wagon to the Sandler train a little too late.

-1 HT

There was quite a stellar cast behind the voices in Paranorman, including our title character, whom I really didn't care for in both his leading roles for live action flicks in Where the Wild Things Are and The Road. He brings a great deal of empathy to a character that could have easily been written off as a morbid horror junkie and instead turns him into a misunderstood kid who happens to hang out with dead people.

+1 PN

But I think the edge here has to go to Frankenweenie. The voice talent is an oddball group of Tim Burton regulars and unknowns that blend together perfectly and do a great job of not sounding exactly like themselves, which is a huge pet peeve of mine when watching animated flicks with well known celebrity voices. And Martin Short, who I usually can't stand, seems to be such a great choice for voice work that it struck me as odd that we haven't seen him do this kind of thing before.

+2 FW

STORY

If you can sift through all the banal attempts at humor, Hotel Transylvania's story really isn't that bad for a kid's movie. Have to give it credit here, even if nowhere else.

+1 HT

Frankenweenie is a much more universally appealing story however. Burton dives into the creative process and perhaps shows the world the mad professor he's become, resurrecting one of his very first projects into a feature length that doesn't over stay it's welcome. On the surface it's a great story of a kid and his dog but underneath it's about a boy discovering his talents and passions and using them for good.

+2 FW

But ParaNorman really knocked it out of the park with it's storyline that drills down to the very core of fear itself. Underneath all the witches, zombies, and conversing with corpses - ParaNorman is a very human story that all ages can identify with. This is where ParaNorman elevates from a good kids' movie, to a good movie.

+3 PN

DIRECTION

The look and feel of Laika's unique animation is unmistakable. It's dark and cryptic and very human. And in a world of animation dominated by computer graphics and prestine visuals, seeing this style of film endure is fantastic. And their films are really suitable for all ages. I know a lot of kids' films throw that out there but ParaNorman really is a film that I think everyone can enjoy. Hotel Transylvania on the other hand, is an example of a kids movie aimed exclusively at kids. There's too much time wasted on immature gags that only kids will laugh at, despite a story that could find an older audience relating.

And Frankenweenie's biggest flaw for me was the choice to make it in black and white. I know that was how the initial short film was done but I really didn't see any advantage to retaining that aspect. And I'm sure that was a huge part of what scared audiences away. This was a pretty heavily marketed film for Disney and wound up being a box office dissapointment while Hotel Transylvania's light and modern looking cartoons dominated, at least financially.

+1 PN

X-FACTORS

In terms of laughs, I feel like ParaNorman definitely had the most for kids and adults. Frankenweenie's humor was very Burton-esque and flew over most kids' heads while Hotel Transylvania pandered way too much to the younger audience. ParaNorman nails the mix perfectly.

+1 PN

I know a lot of people were rubbed the wrong way by some of the adult themes in ParaNorman but if you're a kid of the 80's/90's like me, you probably grew up watching stuff like Gremlins and Beetlejuice way before you understood all of what was going on, so that stuff doesn't really bother me. I guess the most universally appealing though would have to be Frankenweenie. It's got a lot of charm, dark Tim Burton humour, and great Halloween atmosphere. So if you're a little more conservative, I suppose the most appealing would be Frankenweenie.

+1 FW

But I think ParaNorman nails the all encompassing feeling of Halloween best of all three of these films. Halloween is a holiday for kids and ParaNorman is a film that takes you back to that feeling of being a kid. It has nods to everyting horror - ghosts, witches, zombies, B movies, slashers, EVERYTHING! Truly a great film and definitely a go to for kid friendly Halloween flicks.

Week 7 Power Rankings

Ball-fake-rams
1. Cowboys - Dallas wasn't nearly as impressive in their win over New York this week but they still showed us why they should be considered the most balanced team in the league. DeMarco Murray continues his tear of 100+ yard games while Romo shows more poise in the pocket than we've ever seen from him behind this remarkable offensive line. And some how the defense looks more vicious without Shaun Lee or DeMarcus Ware? This team seems to defy logic but it appears the Cowboys have finally shored up their weak spots after years of criticism for their dreadful o-line and inconsistent play calling. The Cowboys aren't far and away the best team in the league but they've certainly separated themselves in the early goings as the most complete team thus far.
2. Broncos - What I thought was going to be the best game of the week, turned into a one sided Peyton Manning love fest. And honestly, the record breaking touchdown didn't even look like a touchdown to me. But then you'd have to retract the huge stadium wide announcement, horse charging onto the field with the 509 flag, etc, etc. He didn't get both feet down but whatever. He would have gotten it later in the game anyways. Denver's offense looks better each coming week and with the emergence of Ronny Hillman in the running game, they may be an even more dangerous team than last year. Especially with that defense holding the 9ers to just 17 points.
3. Colts - Even without a decent running game, the Colts have the league's #1 offense by far. And Andrew Luck didn't let up any hosting the Bengals as Indy dominated Cincinnati 27-0 on Sunday. The shutout couldn't have been possible though without the tenacious play of their defense, who held the Bengals to 0 first downs on their first 8 possessions. Pagano has this defense looking nasty in the past couple of weeks and with Luck putting up gigantic numbers like this, they could be hard to catch in any game.
4. Ravens - Baltimore might be the least talked about 1 loss team in the league right now, which is a bit of a head scratcher as the team's just a year removed from their Superbowl run and Joe Flacco is back to playing like Joe Flacco with steady run support. Forsett has to be the breakout player of the year thus far, giving this team consistency after seemingly being left for dead in the back field without Ray Rice and dismal output from Bernard Pierce. His production has given Flacco a lot more time in the pocket and adding a reliable check down target like Steve Smith to the receiving corps has helped immensely. Don't be surprised if John's the only Harbaugh whose team is pushing for another Superbowl appearance this January.
5. Eagles - On a bye this week, the Eagles are still neck and neck with the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East. And if LeSean McCoy and the battered and bruised offensive line can get healthy in the downtime, they may be the only offense in the NFC on par with Dallas.
6. Chargers - The San Diego offense couldn't pull away from the Chiefs this time as they had only their defense to rely on in the closing seconds of Sunday's loss to Kansas City. And lets just say, the defense is nowhere near as prolific as the offense is. San Diego gave up way too many plays in the middle of the field, where Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles seemed to focus on picking them apart all day long. Rivers is good but when you go up against a defense like Kansas City, your defense has to make a stand at some point. San Diego's doesn't look capable of that.
7. Cardinals - Arizona outlasted the Raiders in Carson Palmer's return to Oakland, the Cardinals took a commanding lead in the NFC West thanks to the Broncos and Rams. Well, beating the winless Raiders didn't hurt either. Andre Ellington continued with his breakout season by putting up 160 total yards, giving this Cardinals team a running game they haven't had in quite some time. Don't write the Cardinals off, this team is for real. Even if they eventual drop out of the top spot in the feisty NFC West, I expect this team to be a playoff contender for sure.
8. 49ers - I was really expecting a much better game between San Fran and Denver but I guess missing Navarro Bowman, Aldon Smith and Patrick Willis might be a bit much for the 9ers to have to make up for, especially against a guy in the midst of breaking the all-time passing touchdown record. But all injuries aside, there's been a sharp decline in performance from Frank Gore this year, who used to be as reliable as any back in the league. His yards per carry are way down this season and his output is sorely missed in the offense, who really can't be carried by Kaepernick alone.
9. Lions - Detroit's a different team this year. And not just because their buffoon of a head coach is gone but defensively they're much more sound. Glover Quinn has stepped up huge in the secondary and with the pass rush of Fairly and Suh, it's nearly impossible to pass on them. And now that Stafford is forced to find other receivers due to Megatron's injury, the offense looks much more consistent as well. Putting together a 13 point comeback the Lions pulled off a win they normally would have quit on. I think the NFC North may be Detroit's to lose at this point. Which was the case last year but I think their #1 ranked defense is better suited to hold off the competition now.
10. Seahawks - Even if Seattle had come up with the ball during the controversial dog-pile fumble at the end of the game, I really don't think the offense could have pushed the ball down field in time to come away with a victory. I just wish the play would have at least been reviewed so there wouldn't be this looming question hanging over one of the best games of the weekend. Seattle's got real problems on both sides of the ball, most noticeable is their abandonment of Marshawn Lynch. He doesn't seem to be getting the touches he deserves and the offense has been struggling as a result, running plays too cute to make it out of the backfield the majority of the time.
11. Packers - Randall Cobb finally broke out of his slump this week, contributing 121 receiving yards in Green Bay's domination of Carolina. Rogers had an unbelievable game against a Panthers secondary that looks nowhere near the shutdown squad they were a year ago. Meanwhile, the Packers' offense is starting to look like they did back in Rogers' MVP campaign, he just doesn't have the defense to make this team a solid Superbowl contender.
12. Chiefs - San Diego's five game winning streak came screeching to a hault this week at home against the Chiefs as Alex Smith exposed the faults in the Chargers' defense seemingly all day long. But getting help from Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles surely doesn't hurt either. His closing drive to set up the game winning field goal looked absolutely perfect and leaves room for a third team once again in the AFC West playoff hunt. The Chiefs look just as viable as last year and if Smith can keep his turnovers down as he has lately, this team may not be done just yet.
13. Patriots - Talk about the ultimate redemption story. Chris Jones, the guy that gave the Jets a second chance at a game winning field goal that initially missed last season, came up huge with his block on another potential game winner Thursday night as the Patriots held off the surprisingly contentious Jets. New England's defense was dreadful holding off what's been a very pedestrian New York offense thus far in the season so this wasn't really a win that the Pats should feel good about. A 2 point win over a 1-5 team isn't anything to gloat about when you're struggling as much as the Patriots are.
14. Steelers - Pittsburgh’s got plenty of explosive players but apparently they’re only going to show up sporadically this season. Like the insane 74 seconds in the second quarter that allowed Pittsburgh to jump out to a big enough lead for the sloppy Houston offense to remain out of reach. With the Browns and Bengals both slowly unraveling, the Steelers’ playoff hopes aren’t dead quite yet. As long as Le’Veon Bell keep active in the play calling.
15. Bengals - Cinci couldn't really feel that good about ending their overtime game with the Panthers last week in a tie but it sure as hell had to feel better than this week. The Bengals were dominated, so much that the 27-0 final score doesn't really even do it justice. If you had any doubts about how crucial A.J. Green is to Andy Dalton's success, look no further than this game for all the evidence you need. And like Carolina, this team's defense seems to have regressed immensely, especially in their pass rush. With all four teams in the AFC North floating around .500, the Bengals need to fix things quick before they sink below the competition.
16. Panthers - Carolina's defense was humiliated this week as the Packers did virtually anything they wanted to against the slumping Panthers' d. Hey but at least we got some more quality time with Derek Anderson! But really though, do we have to let any of the NFC South teams into the playoffs this year, or can we just give an extra spot to the NFC West?
17. Bills - Kyle Orton overcame 4 turnovers to the rebuilt Vikings defense to come out with a last second touchdown pass to rookie standout Sammy Watkins to steal one away from Minnesota this week in Buffalo. The one point victory came at the expense of both CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson, who both left the game due to injuries, leaving Boobie Dixon as their only source for a ground game. However, the Bills defense continued to wreak havoc on Teddy Bridgewater, who's quickly becoming the most sacked quarterback in the league, holding the Peterson-less Vikings to a measlely 16 points. The Bills are still statistically in the AFC playoff race but without Spiller or Jackson, this offense is going to continue to struggle quite a bit. And you'll need more than 17 points to beat most teams outside of the bottom third of the league.
18. Saints - New Orleans stacked up a 13 point lead on the Lions until Detroit came charging back and sealed a comeback win off of a Drew Brees interception that lead to a game winning touchdown pass from Stafford. Brees can't do it all on his own anymore. The Saints should have been able to run this game out, provided they actually had a reliable running attack. Which they haven't since their Superbowl run back when Peyton was still a Colt. This team severely lacks balance and even though Carolina looks far from unbeatable atop the NFC South, New Orleans has to win games like these to remain viable in the hunt for the playoffs.
19. Bears - 7 weeks into the regular season and Chicago still hasn't won a home game. To quote Brandon Marshall, "That's unacceptable". And as much as I stick up for Jay Cutler, he's given me absolutely no reason to do so this year. Without steady production from Matt Forte, he's been a turnover machine. Even with arguably one of the best receiving corps in the league, this team's passing game is awful. And the only thing worse than their offense is the defense, who made Ryan Tannehill look like a superstar this week. I've been reluctant to give up on the Bears, especially when it's the Lions they have to catch in the division race, but I think this is where I jump off Chicago entirely. Losing to the Dolphins at home is ridiculous.
20. Texans - Houston were on track for a seemingly painless Monday night victory until two incredibly costly turnovers gave Pittsburgh the ball within the 10 yard line twice before the half ended in what was a 10 point Texans lead. The defense is good but still not good enough to carry this team on their own. Fitzpatrick is a place filler and until they can get a real starting qb, they’re not returning to the playoffs any time soon.
21. Browns - Just when we were all about to start feeling good about the Browns again, they go out and put up 6 points against the worst team in football, giving the Jaguars their first win of the season. The defense finally played pretty decent, picking off rookie Blake Bortles 3 times but it was their offense that couldn't capitalize. Cleveland's right back to the bottom of the AFC North after one of the most short lived Cinderella stories in recent memory.
22. Rams - St.Louis jumped out to another big early lead against a divisional rival this week. But this time, with a lot of help from their special teams, the Rams were able to hang on and stun the Superbowl champions. A punt return misdirection that defies all logic and a fake punt that went for an 18 yard pass helped St.Louis hang on to a lead Austin Davis helped build with his impressive first half performance, making easy work out of the Legion of Boom. The Rams clearly don't fear anybody, which makes them incredibly dangerous, no matter how sloppy their secondary seems to be playing. But with as much talent as the defensive side of the ball has, all they need is one play maker back there to solidify what should be one of the best defenses in the league.
23. Dolphins - The only thing more surprising than how Miami blew a completely winnable game at home against the Packers last week is how they dominated the Bears in Chicago this week. Tannehill looked like a man reborn out there against this struggling Chicago defense while the defense held a frustrated Jay Cutler to just 190 yards, a fumble and a pick after he torched the Falcons last week for 380. Miami's been momentarily contentious but I still don't look for this team to have any impact long term. Unless you count pushing Brandon Marshall into media meltdown mode with his "unacceptable" press conference and locker room tirade after the game.
24. Giants - New York looked much better this week against Dallas than they did against Philly, but ultimately it was another losing effort from the G-Men. Eli still looks lost without a consistent running game and the defense has completely lost its edge, especially in pass coverage. New York may not be as bad as the preseason or even early games this regular season suggested but they're still not up to par with the playoff contenders in this league.
25. Vikings - Bridgewater threw two incredibly costly interceptions in Minnesota's narrow loss to Buffalo, who they largely dominated for the majority of Sunday's game. Rookie Anthony Barr has been an absolute stud for the defense, leading the team in tackles and finally solidifying the middle of the field for the Vikings. There big problem was capitalizing on the four turnovers their defense forced, as the offense only accounted for a meager 16 points which was easily eclipsed even by a team without their two go-to options on offense. At least Minnesota seems to have found a steady replacement for AP in McKinnon. The same can't really be said for Bridgewater just yet, but I'm not ready to rule him out as a starter until the offensive line quits hanging him out to dry on a weekly basis.
26. Falcons - Atlanta's an absolute train wreck. Mike Smith should have been shown the door at the close of last year's disappointing season but now with a healthy Julio Jones, the guy's got no excuses. The defense is as bad as it's been in his entire run with the team and the running game hasn't been the same since Michael Turner left. And it's been this way in Atlanta for the past three seasons now, so why nothing has changed is beyond me.
27. Jets - Everyone was expecting another Thursday night blowout when the 1 win Jets were lined up to play the Patriots but for some reason, Rex seems to know how to compete with the NFC East super power. Even in a loss, the Jets impressed me much more than the Patriots did. But now that they've acquired a time bomb like Percy Harvin, I feel like the desperation and toxic atmosphere in that locker room might have just increased exponentially with every coming loss.
28. Buccaneers - Tampa's got the week off, which is probably a good thing, as the rest of the NFC South took on some pretty embarrassing losses. The Bucs clearly aren't a playoff caliber team but seeing the rest of their division so stagnant leaves a lot of room for hope for next year but a knee jerk firing of Lovie Smith this spring could undo all of that. Hopefully the Tampa front office has the foresight to keep him around and improve what's really holding this team back - the defense.
29. Redskins - Isn't there some really dated football saying about the backup quarterback being everyone's favorite player or something? Well now that Kirk Cousins isn't that guy in Washington after his atrocious 0-4 starting record for the Redskins, third string quarterback Colt McCoy came in at half time to get the job done against the helpless Titans, throwing a touchdown pass on his first play from scrimmage. But before you go out and trade all your RG3 swag for McCoy jerseys, know this - IT WAS THE TITANS. WE'VE BEEN THROUGH THIS KIND OF OVER-REACTIONARY RESPONSE TO A BACKUP QUARTERBACK BEFORE, REMEMBER? HE JUST GOT BENCHED AT HALFTIME THIS WEEK.
30. Titans - With Charlie Whitehurst and Bobby Sanky leading the hapless Tennessee offense, it's no surprise Colt McCoy came in and outscored the Titans in the second half of what had to be the most boring game of the weekend. At least in Jacksonville/Cleveland you got to see a winless team finally break their losing streak. Without turnover machine Kirk Cousins on the field, the Titans really didn't have anything to gain momentum with in the second half. This team's abysmal.
31. Jaguars - Even though Bortles threw 3 interceptions against the stout Cleveland defense, their defense came up huge holding the Browns to just 6 points and limiting Brian Hoyer to an eye popping 16/41 passing. It seemed all the momentum went with Jacksonville after they stopped the Browns on a head scratching 4th and 1 pass attempt late in the second quarter. Cleveland didn't seem to respect the Jaguars whatsoever and paid the price, giving the winless team their first victory of the season, in a surprisingly one sided game.
32. Raiders - Oakland remains the league's only winless team as their former quarterback came in and blew passed the hopeless Raiders this week. Carr didn't throw any picks to the relentless Cardinals defense, but he didn't throw any touchdowns either. It's sad when that's the most positive thing you can say about a team's performance.

Seriously though, if that DC schedule is played out in full my comic book fatigue might just drive me away from movies all together. Far too many great resources are being used up on C level entertainment.

I can't say I agree, but I respect your opinion. Like Cochise said, Superhero movies are there own (sub)genre, like dramas, comedies, action, etc, and with the money they make they are not going anywhere anytime soon.

There is a reversion in this genre, if you can call it a genre, that was once seeing levels of greatness. But Nolan's days are over and these movies are quickly becoming "just for kids" fare once more. Worse still we're expected to congratulate or be excited about these studios giving us a list of release dates with no insight to the stories or reasons to tell these stories. That's a big problem to me.

Week 6 Power Rankings

137cowboys_seahawks_football
1. Cowboys - I really don't want this to look like a case of "You have to beat the best to be the best" or any other kind of overreaction to Sunday's win over the reigning Superbowl champions but at this point in the season, Dallas is clearly the best team in the league. After putting out one of the worst defensive efforts in league history just a year ago, this team has done a complete 180. And after years of battling through an atrocious offensive line, the pieces are finally in place that make them one of the best front lines in football. And I don't mean to toot my own horn here but I've been singing DeMarco Murray's praises for years now, begging for the Cowboys to give him a bigger role in the offense and now that the offensive line has improved, it seems they're finally ready to commit to a stable ground attack. Which has done wonders for Tony Romo, who used to have to carry this one dimensional team and now looks like the squad's weakest facet. And don't let the final score fool you, Dallas dominated every aspect of their win over Seattle, it wasn't nearly as close as the final score might lead you to believe. Dallas is for real, the only thing standing in their way now is the expectations they’ve set with this win.
2. Seahawks - Seattle had one last shot in a game they really had no business even competing in when Russell Wilson threw the game sealing interception that brought the Hawks out of first place in the NFC West. Seattle just couldn't contain the balanced onslaught of Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray and ultimately didn't have enough firepower themselves on offense to keep up. Seattle's got some flaws but I still think they're correctable enough that they'll be right in the thick of things come January. It's just not going to be as easy as they've made it look thus far.
3. Broncos - Denver had an incredibly ugly game on Sunday but luckily for them it was against the even uglier Jets. Geno Smith provided just enough inefficiencies for Denver to take advantage and escape from New York with a victory. Eric Dekker was looking to make the Broncos pay but his biggest game of the year still paled in comparison to Peyton's 506 touchdown landmark and Aqib Talib's game sealing pick six. The Broncos are dangerous but not nearly as dominant as they were last year.
4. Chargers - San Diego avoided the near upset this week, keeping the winless Raiders in the basement of the AFC West with yet another loss. But the big concern for San Diego should be that they gave up 4 touchdowns and 300+ yards to the flailing rookie quarterback Derek Carr. The defense has been much improved this year but sightings like this are proof that they still have quite a bit of work to do on that side of the ball.
5. Eagles - Philadelphia and New York talked smack all week long leading up to their division rivalry match up Sunday Night but what spoke the loudest was the Eagles overbearing victory, holding the rejuvenated Giants' offense to as many points as the Eagles have won Superbowls. Without a sustained running game, the Eagles defense rushed Eli all night long without anyone to bail him out of the pressure. LeSean McCoy also ran for one of his biggest game of the year reminding the G-Men of who the real leaders of the division are. After an atrocious 2013, is the NFC East back to being one of the best divisions in football?
6. Cardinals - Arizona looked much better this week with Carson Palmer returning as their quarterback and even better with Kirk Cousins as the opposing quarterback, throwing the game clinching pick six in the closing seconds of regulation while the Cardinals remain the only team in the league to avoid throwing an interception this season. Arizona now stands alone atop the rugged NFC West but they're in for an up hill battle trying to retain that position with the secondary already showing signs of fatigue.
7. 49ers - Winners of 3 straight, you’d never guess there was off the field turmoil with San Francisco based on their on the field performance. The team’s defense is playing very well in the absence of some of their best players and will only get better upon Willis & Co’s return. And if the Niners give up on Harbaugh after three consecutive NFC title appearances it’ll be the worst front office move since the Raiders ditched Gruden.
8. Patriots - Tom Brady's 22-2 in his career playing Buffalo and despite New England's recent slump, he wasn't about to let the Bills think for a second they're any closer to taking surpassing the Pats in the AFC East standings. Brandon LaFell finally had the kind of impact we were all expecting as Brady spread the ball all over the Bills secondary. However, the win did come at the cost of injuries to Jarod Mayo and Stephen Ridley.
9. Lions - Detroit's got the number one rated defense in the league (I still like Arizona and Seattle better) and they needed it to secure the win against the Vikings this week. After Minnesota gave up 42 to the Packers in last week's Thursday night bloodbath, Stafford and the Lions offense could only muster up 17 on the Vikings. Without Calvin Johnson, this team really looks lost offensively and Stafford's got pleanty of weapons at his disposal now, so why is it so hard for him to trust them? And what's with these Detroit kickers? Even Matt Prater went 1-2 in his return to Detroit this week.
10. Colts - Indianapolis started on pace for yet another Thursday night beatdown until the offense slipped into clock eating mode, which their offensive line and less than stellar game are ill-equiped to handle. This has been a common pattern for the Colts, as closing out games without a reliable running back has proven to be incredibly tough for this awful offensive line and Luck can only do so much. But the defense has been much improved over the past few games, even clinching this narrow win over Houston with a Fitzpatrick interception on what could have been a game stealing drive for the Texans, who forfeit first place in the AFC South solely to the Colts. Big surprise, right?
11. Ravens - Baltimore dismantled the seemingly refocused Buccaneers, as Joe Flacco threw for 5 first half touchdown passes. The dude's been on fire as of late and hasn't looked this good since their Superbowl run. Forsett has been a surprise in the backfield, providing some stable run game in Ray Rice's absence, though he'd seen a sharp decline in production anyways. The Ravens may be one of the AFC's sneaky good contenders that could get into the playoffs on a wildcard and end somebody's season quickly.
12. Bengals - Cinci blew a completely winnable game to the Panthers to settle for a tie, as their potential game winning field goal sliced wide right in the closing minutes of over time against Carolina. Cam Newton had his biggest rushing game of the year as he kept the Bengals defense on their toes and without A.J. Green, Andy Dalton just couldn't keep up. Even with a massive game from Giovani Bernard, the Bengals offense still couldn't outscore the Panthers, which is a major concern depending on how serious Green's injury is.
13. Panthers - Without DeAngello Williams, Carolina finally found some run support for Cam Newton. It just had to come from Cam Newton himself. The scrambling Superman kept the Bengals dominating defense guessing all game long and forced the game into an overtime tie after matching field goals and a missed game winner from Cinci. Carolina needs to do everything they can to stay in the playoff hunt with how scarce wildcard slots are shaping up to be in the increasingly deep NFC. Luckily for them their divisional depth seems to have dried up quite a bit this season.
14. Packers - Green Bay pulled out another last minute victory over an AFC bottom feeder, this week's victim being the Miami Dolphins. Rogers even had to resort to former Miami great Dan Marino's fake spike to seal the victory on the final drive of the game that set up the winning touchdown pass. Randal Cobb and Eddie Lacy's progression has been much slower than expected as the offense still seems to be entirely reliant on Aaron Rogers but against inferior opponents like the Dolphins, that's not really a bad thing.
15. Bears - Chicago finally had something to celebrate this week as Matt Forte and the rest of the Bears offense looked much better piling up on the Atlanta Falcons. But so did the Vikings. Chicago's still got some major issues pressuring the quarterback and protecting their own as Cutler continues to make some pretty sloppy plays under pressure (did anyone else see him try to throw with his left hand?). If this team is going to have to rely on their offense to win, I'm not ready to rely on this team much at all.
16. Chiefs - Kansas City has a bye this week watching the Broncos and Chargers continue to roll through opponents, even if it's not the most prestine performances of their respective seasons. The Chiefs definitely haven't experianced as sharp a drop in production as expected, despite what their record may tell you. But it's definitely going to be a struggle making it back into the playoffs with the Ravens eyeing their wildcard berth.
17. Browns - Cleveland beat up on the aging Pittsburgh stealers pretty handily this time around after nearly pulling off a huge comeback win in their first meeint. The Browns never gave the Steelers a chance as Hoyer the Destroyer ravaged the Steelers' sloppy secondary as the dog pound keeps their playoff hopes very much alive and Pittsburgh's very close to gone. I'm not sure why everyone was so quick to dump on Hoyer, he had this team on top of the division before his injury last year and he's clearly the best quarterback on the Browns' roster so why fight it? The dude's playing great football and if not for the Joe Flacco revival in Baltimore would probably be the best quarterback in his division. Yeah I said it. Stick that in your Rothlisberger and rape it.
18. Falcons - Atlanta's defense has been atrocious this season (at least against any team not from Tampa Bay). The Falcons haven't been able to stop anybody and gave the struggling Bears offense the boost of confidene they so desperately needed while Devin Hester stood on the sideline watching any chance of exacting revenge on his former team fly right past his eyes. The Falcons have suffered from their incredibly soft defense and lack of a run game for some time now and their unwillingness to address these issues are surely to lead them back into another year outside of the playoffs, no matter how many touchdowns Julio Jones racks up along the way.
19. Steelers - Pittsburgh nearly gave up a huge come from behind victory to Cleveland on opening day but had just enough to hold them off. In their rematch this week the Browns never gave the Steelers the chance to coast. The lousy Steelers offense couldn't move on the Cleveland defense and looked even worse trying to stop them. Pittsburgh's defense has been over the hill for quite some time and yet no one seems to be coming up the ranks to replace the veterans passed their prime. Did Tomlin just inheret the remains of what Cowher built and his inability to build with young players has just now caught up with him? I really like Tomlin so I hope not but it's kind of hard to argue against his lack in developing young defensive talent.
20. Texans - Houston showed a lot of heart out there Thursday night, battling their way back into a game most teams would have tapped out of after a 17-0 first quarter. Fitzpatrick has just enough talent to keep them in most games but he still lacks the poise to compose a game winning drive, which is exactly what the Texans needed to overcome their 5 point deficit in their final drive of the game. Instead, he threw yet another interception which clinched the Colts stance atop the AFC South and Houston's departure into second. Nice to see Arian Foster back at 100% though.
21. Bills - Hoping to push passed the struggling Patriots and take control of the AFC East, the Bills came up a little short as Brady and his band of misfit recievers put together enough offense to overcome the Buffalo defense. The Bills still aren't quite there in terms of being a real competitor in the East but with the right quarterback, they will be. I just don't think the right quarterback is on their current roster.
22. Saints - New Orleans had the week off as not a single one of their divisional opponents took home a W this week. Okay so Carolina escaped with a tie but none the less, New Orleans still has a shot at rising passed the rest of the underachieving NFC South. It's just not very likely at this point.
23. Giants - New York was feeling pretty good about themselves and their new offense. That is, until they met up with the Eagles on Sunday night. Eli Manning was under fire all night long and without Rashad Jennings to stabalize a steady running game, the offense looked as inept as it has all season, laying a big fat goose egg in the score column. Manning's really only been succesful when he has someone like Brandon Jacobs or Ahmad Bradshaw in the backfield for support and without Jennings, he's doomed to another season like last year.
24. Dolphins - The Dolphins looked to be back up to full strength and ready to stun the Packers until Aaron Rogers pulled out a 60 yard game winning drive full of fake spikes, 4th and 10 conversions and the final 5 yard touchdown pass that seemed to expose all the Miami miscues in one horrible display of defense. Miami’s got to get consistent play on either side of the ball and right now they have none.
25. Vikings - The Vikings did a great job of holding the Lions offense in check, they just couldn't muster any offense themselves to take advantage of it. Bridgewater had no time and no run support up against the vicious Detroit pass rush. But as good as Detroit's front four is, there's no denying the regression of first round draft pick Matt Kalil. He's let way too many defenders into the backfield these past two years after an impressive rookie season and needs to step up if the offense is going to have any luck moving the ball against any pass rush whatsoever.
26. Rams - St. Louis was lined up for a huge Monday night upset until the Niners defense held them to just one first down in the entire second half. The offense looked great in the first two quarters as Austin Davis spread the ball around to 8 different receivers racking up an early 14-0 lead that quickly withered away to a 31-17 final score after 3 straight Colin Kaepernick touchdown passes. As good as the defensive front is, the backfield needs improved production if they’re going to be this inconsistent on offense.
27. Buccaneers - If you thought Tampa’s blowout days had been benched along with their former starting quarterback you’re dead wrong. The Buccaneers’ biggest deficiencies are on the defensive side of the ball and if you didn’t know that going into Sunday, Joe Flacco made damn sure you know it now. The running committee of Doug Martin and Bobby Rainey were pretty ineffective moving on the stout Baltimore defense and when the score became that one-sided, the load was too heavy for Mike Glennon to lift on his own. Lovie’s got to get this defense together or he’ll be back in the unemployment line next summer.
28. Redskins - Kirk Cousins didn't look too bad this week but his game sealing pick six on the final drive of the game sure did. It's exactly why Cousins looks like a great game manager but not a game winner, no further proof needed than his 0-4 record starting in RG3’s absence. The team needs to find more ways to get DeSean Jackson involved in the offense because outside of Alfred Morris, their passing game is pretty stagnant. But it really doesn't matter what the offense does until the defense improves.
29. Jets - Despite dialing up some tough defense for Denver to overcome, New York couldn’t get out of their own way as Geno Smith finally blew it in the closing seconds of the game with an interception returned for a touchdown. Geno had been playing much better all game long, until he finally coughed up that fatal interception when it mattered most. I do think Geno is capable of starting in this league but with the weapons he has around him in New York right now, he’s not going to do much more than that.
30. Titans - What a riveting game this was! Division rivalry bloodbath as the 1-4 Titans eek out a 2 point win over the 0-5 Jags! Tennessee did a great job eliminating the Jaguar running game all together but Blake Bortles nearly mounted a comeback on his own, if not for a blocked potential game winning field goal on the last play of the game. We all know how bad the Jags are but I think this gives us a much better look at how bad the Titans are as well.
31. Raiders - Oakland had their best game of the year thus far but the end result was inevitably the same. The Raiders always play their fellow sunshine state rivals closely but I don’t think anyone expected them to keep up with the high powered San Diego offense the way they did. Tony Sporano seems like a decent enough coach but I m not sure he’s got enough ingenuity to keep this team winless.
32. Jaguars - Jacksonville nearly pulled off the comeback victory this week against their fellow AFC South basement feeders in the Tennessee Titans but a blocked game winning field goal on the final play of the game kept the Jaguars winless yet again. Jacksonville’s offensive line is easily the worst in the league, giving Blake Bortles no chance whatsoever to succeed. Which is a shame because the guy has shown some glimpses of promise.

As a Cowboys fan I'm just waiting for their eventual implosion. Every year they find a way to shoot themselves in the foot, so I'm fully expecting it to happen again.

THE CLONE WARS EPISODE XLVII: The Purge v.s. The Purge:Anarchy

The-purge-anarchy-reviews-starring-frank-grillo

It's that time of year again and when it comes to sequels, remakes, ripoffs, and clones of all kinds; horror seems to dominate. The low cost in horror leaves a lot of room for profitability so even if the original film is only marginally successful, it's likely there will be a sequel. Thus is the case with this week's matchup, The Purge. After a huge opening weekend and sharp dropoff in the following weeks due to poor word of mouth, Universal shoved out a sequel in a little over 14 months to capitalize on the Purge's already closing window of popularity. But did the follow up really improve upon the underwhelming original? Let the voting begin!

CAST

I hate to be so dismissive as to say that the cast in a horror movie doesn't matter but let's put it this way- the cast in the Purge doesn't matter. Lena Heady really delivers the only memorable performance out of either movie so I suppose that gives the edge to the original. Ethan Hawke's involvement definitely sparked my interest when I saw the trailer but his role in the film is nothing special. But Adelaide Kane made for some great eye candy as the teenage daughter, so I guess that seals it.

+1 The Purge

STORY

The setup for the Purge is brilliant. As bad as both of these movies are, the concept alone is intriguing enough to warrant your attention for a whole film. Even if the first movie's plot dives off a cliff in the second half. Once the premise is established and the story turns into a typical home-invasion style slashers, all the pulse of this film flatlines entirely.

The second film makes the classic horror sequel mistake of showing too much of the mechanics behind the mystery. The original film had a great sense of claustrophobia, as you were trapped in with the family during the entire purge. But the sequel takes you out into the streets and exposes even more plotholes than the original did. It's way better to imagine the chaos erupting in the streets than to show some cheesy dirt bike gang with blank masks and some dingus driving around with a mini gun in the back of a box truck.

The mystery made the Purge scary, when there wasn't really much on screen to be scared of. The Purge Anarchy eliminates that mystery and evolves into more of an action/suspense-thriller, without a whole lot of action or suspense.

+1 The Purge

DIRECTION

So James DeMonaco directed both of these flicks but I think he may have done a better job with his first effort. As I mentioned before, that eerie atmosphere established in the first film is nowhere to be found in the sequel. And since neither film really excells in pacing or originality so I guess we chalk this one up to the original as well.

+1 The Purge

X-FACTORS

Both of these movies were pretty underwhelming but at least the first one was engaging. For about half the film but half's still better than not at all. This one's pretty clear cut for me, the better film overall is the original. But that doesn't really mean that either of them are any good. But the core idea is good enough for me to give the upcoming third film a shot, just maybe with a new director...

Week 5 Power Rankings

20141006__jim_schwartz_carry_400
1. Seahawks - If one thing's for certain this year in the NFL, it's that any team can win on any given Sunday. The bulk of the teams in the league are somewhere between B- & C+ while Seattle and Denver are riding high with honors. The Seahawks' one flaw seems to be their knack for getting penalties. Just ask Percy Harvin, who had three touchdown plays nullified Monday night due to flags on Seattle. Aside from the the refs, it doesn't look like much can slow the Seahawks down.
2. Broncos - Denver finally got their number one receiver going and it came against one of the best corners in the game. Antonio Cromartie was scorched for nearly 200 yards as Demaryus Thomas ran all over the storied Cardinals secondary, handing Arizona their first loss of the season. Peyton looked outstanding against one of the league’s best defenses and with a re-focused emphasis on their biggest playmaking receiver, this offense may be revving up to where they left off last season.
3. Chargers - San Diego appears to be the most lethal offense in the NFL this season. I can’t believe I’m saying that either but it’s true. Their balanced run/pass attack lead by the reborn Phillip Rivers is amongst the highest scoring offenses in the league and with their improvements on the defensive side of the ball, it’s no telling how far this team will go.
4. Cardinals - I know I said anyone could quarterback for the Cardinals and be successful (except Matt Leinart) but I didn’t know I was going to be held to that…Stanton did an okay job but once he went down and third stringer Logan Thomas came in, it was all over for the Cards. You can’t pin this all on the offense though, the typically unbeatable defense gave up 479 yards to Manning’s passing attack. I do think this team can bounce back, especially with a healthy Carson Palmer, but this was a stark reminder that you still can’t win in this league without a quarterback. At least not when you're up against a great one.
5. Eagles - There are 8 different ways to score a touchdown in the NFL and Philly’s needed 7 of them to pull out their close wins thus far this season. And with the way their defense is giving up yardage, their going to need to score anyway possible to keep up. Luckily, they usually can. McCoy finally got going in the running game this week and Foles continues to impress. But a team this one-dimensional is a dangerous bet, no matter how impressive their offense may be.
6. 49ers - The bruising 49ers defense outlasted the surging Chiefs offense as Alex Smith’s quest for redemption ended unceremoniously in San Fran interception that allowed Harbaugh to run out the clock on his former quarterback. The off the field stories of unrest in the locker room don’t seem to be coming out onto the field so as long as they can continue winning, I think this team will be just fine. That is until the real speculation starts in the offseason…
7. Patriots - New England may have been on the other end of a one sided beat down this week but don’t think that means their problems are all gone now. Cinci’s defense made it way too easy for Brady & Co. to march down the field at will and any other team with more than one go to receiver can still take advantage of the lousy Patriots secondary. They’re not totaled, but they’re still not quite fixed.
8. Bengals - You had to see this coming, didn’t you? New England never loses big in back to back games and Cinci never comes out on top in prime time opportunities. But I’m used to seeing the offense crumble in the spotlight, it was the defense that was the biggest surprise Sunday night. They made Tom Brady look like Tom Brady again and even worse, Steven Ridley look like the rookie Steven Ridley. Cinci can bitch and moan about critics overreacting to their prime time losses but winning a couple of these big games every once in a while might make it easier to defend you.
9. Colts - Andrew Luck is a one man wrecking crew and along with Phillip Rivers, should be the early choice for MVP. But this week we finally saw Indy’s defense step up and back some big plays. Finally taking on some competition outside of the toilet bowl of the AFC South, the Colts held the Ravens from completing a near comeback and limited the run game to next to nothing.
10. Lions - It’s a rare sight to see Jim Schwartz carried off the field in glory in Detroit, but on the opposing team is just absurd. After a ridiculous amount of missed field goals and injuries to Reggie Bush and Calvin Johnson, it seems like Schwartz may be the big winner in their recent divorce. At least momentarily…
11. Cowboys - Dallas outlasted the stout Houston defense with an unbelievable catch from Dez Bryant that secured the go-ahead field goal win in overtime for the streaking Cowboys. Romo seems to be recovering much better than anticipated from his back surgery and now that the offense has finally utilized DeMarco Murray, this team looks as dangerous as they have in quite some time.
12. Ravens - Coughing up three turnovers and 4 sacks, the Ravens were virtually manhandled by the Colts this week, despite a close final score due to Baltimore’s own defensive efforts. Flacco’s inconsistencies continue to hinder this team and without stable run support, he seems utterly helpless. But there defense will likely give them a fighter’s chance regardless of how the offense plays.
13. Panthers - Greg Olson stuck it to his former team with a game winning grab that sealed the Panthers’ comeback victory this week. Newton’s clearly not 100% but his presence in the pocket has greatly improved and even though their speed in the backfield is down quite a bit, they’re still a threat when he’s on target.
14. Packers - Eddie Lacy finally had his first 100 yard game of the season (or his first game over 50 yards for that matter) in what's become a weekly blowout showcase on Thursday Night Football with this week's latest victim being the Minnesota Vikings. And while I do think the criticism of Thursday games might be a little over the top, as a selfish Vikings fan tired of seeing Christian Ponder even in a uniform, it would have been nice to see Bridgewater have a little more time to recover to face his new division rivals.
15. Chiefs - Kansas City has looked much better these past few weeks, even if it’s meant close losses to superior teams like San Francisco and Denver. While everyone seems to have written this team off before the season even started, I still think there’s a chance we see three teams from the AFC West make the playoffs yet again.
16. Falcons - Atlanta's been such an up and down squad, it's been really tough to figure them out so far. They're great at beating bad teams but when they're faced with a solid defense, they really can't get much going. And I'd hesitate to call the Giants' or Vikings' defense solid but at this point, it's definitely enough to slow down the dirty birds. This looks like another year of the same 'ol Falcons, carried as far as their wide recievers can take them.
17. Bears - Chicago’s past has always been marked by their defense but this year was supposed to be different. With a healthy Jay Cutler leading the receiving corps that got Josh McCown a fighting chance at the playoffs a year ago, this team was supposed to be an offensive juggernaut. But 5 games in and the teams’ offense has lost them more games than won. The turnovers are a real concern and unless Cutler and Forte can stop handing the ball over to the opposition soon, they could get left behind again in the competitive NFC North.
18. Steelers - Pittsburgh's finally getting some impressive play out of the defense but playing against that atrocious Jacksonville offensive line can do that for any team. What should be alarming to Steelers fans is that Big Ben's offense only hung 10 points on a team that everybody's had no problem piling up on thus far. Unless this team gets their offense firing on all cylinders, they could easily fall behind in the tight AFC Wildcard race.
19. Texans - Houston did a fairly decent job limiting the Cowboys but there’s just no defense that can stop the catch Dez Bryant made to clinch the win in Dallas. Arian Foster finally got going this week but the offense still looks incredibly limited but, they are lead by Ryan Fitzpatrick so 3-2 is a damn fine start to the season.
20. Bills - Buffalo took another NFC North contender by surprise this week as Kyle Orton lead the Bills to an upset win over the division leading Lions in Detroit. The team has a lot of talent all around the field but any opponent that doesn’t miss five field goals likely won’t have too hard a time outscoring Kyle Orton.
21. Giants - It seems that Eli Manning's finally figured out the new offense in New York. Or he's just finally learned to trust someone in the recieving corps besides Victor Cruz. And in his first game as a Giant, Odell Beckham Jr. has proved to be a worthy recipient of that trust. I'm just not sure I trust the offense working this well without Rashad Jennings holding things down in the running game, so hopefully his injury isn't long term.
22. Saints - Five weeks into the 2014 season and New Orleans has accumulated 2 wins in incredibly ugly fashion and lost their biggest offseason acuisition for the year. I'd say it's definitely time to hit the panic button when it takes an overtime rally to get past the Bucs. Never would have thought that the Saints' defense would regress as rapidly as the Cowboys' defense has improved this year.
23. Dolphins - Miami's got a bye this week and watching the rest of their AFC East competition it's easy to see their definitely not the best or worst team in this sloppy race. Second best or second worst, somewhere in the middle seems to be right where they're headed.
24. Browns - The cynics were incredibly quick to write off Brian Hoyer this preseason but I've liked what I've seen from the guy. He's not an all-pro talent but I still think he's their best chance to win and obviously so do the Browns. Completing the biggest road comeback in NFL history this weekend, this Cleveland team we all thought would be riding their defense has been an offense powerhouse as of late. Don't sleep on Cleveland just yet, the AFC North is pretty soft this year so I wouldn't be surprised for this team to remain in the mix as long as Pittsburgh and Baltimore keep underperforming.
25. Vikings - Fuck Christian Ponder. Seriously, this kid has been the bane of my (and Vikings fans everywhere's) existance for far too long, why is even on the team anymore? I'd give Josh Freeman another shot before I'd start this guy. Seriously, does he give the world's best blowjobs or what? Because even the commentators don't seem to grill this guy, always commenting on how he made it to the playoffs once (which not so coincidentally happened to be during Adrian Peterson's nearly-record breaking MVP campaign) instead. Meanwhile, Geno Smith is under fire for missing a meeting? I don't get it. Tony Romo questioned for going on a trip to Mexico with Jessica Simpson? Who wouldn't do that? Why does this guy get 4 years of get out of jail free cards with everybody?
26. Rams - Austin Davis thew another unbelievably high amount of yards (and touchdowns) in another losing effort for the Rams this week. I can’t see any scenario in which Sam Bradford returns to this team next year but if Davis’ impressive streak continues, they might want to keep this kid around to compete for the job next season.
27. Buccaneers - Tampa's definitely found new life in Mike Glennon but they're far from flawless. Especially on the defensive side of the ball. After holding New Orleans for most of the game, the Bucs coughed up an 18 yard go ahead run in overtime to clinch New Orleans' comeback victory. Glennon's good but he's not good enough to outscore guys like Drew Brees without a little more help from that awful interior defense.
28. Redskins - Cousins had a surprisingly clean game against Seattle but having DeSean Jackson account for over half of the entire team's offensive production certainly helped. Yet again, it was the Washington defense that came up short, allowing a game clinching drive down the field for Seattle after pulling within a touchdown. Cousins, Morris, and Jackson have built a solid core to this offense but the defense is still going to drop them to the bottom of the suddenly revitalized NFC East.
29. Titans - Charlie Whitehurst actually didn't look too bad against the Browns this week but the Titans' defense sure did. Allowing the biggest comeback by a road team in league history, the secondary was picked apart by the Josh Gordon-less Cleveland receiving corps and Tennessee had no response whatsoever offensively. The defense has to be improve with a squad this mediocre offensively, or they're already dead in the water.
30. Jets - It didn’t really look to matter who the quarterback was on Sunday for the Jets, Rex Ryan’s squad still seems to be lacking on the offensive side of the ball. I know it sounds like I’m kicking a dead horse but this guy has had some of the worst offensive units in football since his last AFC title appearance. I love the guy but it just doesn’t seem like Rex is cut out to handle both sides of the field.
31. Jaguars - The Jaguars are a train wreck. The offensive line cant hold off ANYONE and is making it impossible for this team to run or pass the ball effectively. Hanging with the Steelers for most of the game due to their defensive efforts, the Jags inevitably blew it with a late game pick six that clinched another winless start to the season.
32. Raiders - Can we stop the Gruden talk already? Every two years when the Raiders fire their coach the speculation begins again and I don't think there's anyway he's giving up a once a week job to go try and save a team as hopeless as Oakland. There have been far better opportunities each and every year that he's turned down, so there's no way he's coming in midseason to try and build something out of nothing just out of nostalgia for his old job, or spite towards the way Al Davis and the organization threw him under the bus during his departure.

Dude the Cardinals at 4 is insanity, yeah they're balanced but they're nothing more than a 9 win football team - 10 at the very best.
