What have we learned from the first 2 weeks of the NFL?

Tags: , , , , , , ,

National Football League

National Football League

The 2-0 teams:

The Bills are 2-0 but had to pull a miracle to win vs.  Oakland.  They are not as good as they  looked last week vs. KC because the Chiefs are TERRIBLE.  They face the Pats this week.

The Pats are showing more urgency than in the last few  years.  They are a threat for the Super Bowl.

The Jets are 2-0 but do not look like a top team.  I still don’t trust QB Sanchez in a big  game.  We will know more when they play
the Pats.

The Texans are also 2-0 but have yet to beat anyone.  They will win the division but then choke as  usual but this time in the playoffs rather than against the Colts.

Washington struggled to win at home vs. the Cards.  They have Grossman at QB and are Wine and  fools’ gold.   The Skins are a mess and
HC Shannahan has made the mess worse rather than fixed it.

The Pack is 2-0 but gave up 23 points to CR.  The pass D is a problem and might cost them  big in the playoffs.   Unless the pass D
gets better, this team will not win a 2nd consecutive title.

The Lions look like the real deal at 2-0.  They have outscored their opponent by 52 points  and the D is outstanding.  There is one
caution.  IF QB Bradford can stay healthy  they will be a playoff team

0 – 2 TEAMS:

Over the last 10 years, only 12% of the teams that started  out 0-2 made the playoffs.  Those are not  good odds.

The Dolphins are 0-2 and face a must win at Cleveland this  week.  The coaching staff is hanging on  by a single stand of a spider web.  They
have to win to keep their jobs.  They  will not do either.

The Colts are 0-2 and that was a bad loss for them at home  last week vs. the Browns.   Worse yet,  they face the Steelers at home this week and go to play the Bucs next.  They will be 0-4 and looking for a shot at  the top draft choice (QB Luck) in the 2012 draft.  It is clear that Payton is the brains behind  the O and HC Caldwell should be gone along with the GM for the mess they have  made of this team.

The KC Chiefs are a mess as well.  When OC Weis left so did any semblance of  offense.  HC Haley pushed Weis out and  now we see that the former is not capable of handling the job.  QB Cassel has been miserable and RB Charles is  out for the season with an injury.  Haley
will be gone when this team takes the field next year.  The only scrap of good news is that the team  will play other inept organizations  like
the Vikes and Colts in weeks 4 and 5.

The Vikes are looking for a QB and did not find one that  works in McNabb.   In recent years they could depend on wins  against division foes like the Bears and the Lions.  But the Lions have gotten a lot better and  the Bears are fighting for their coach’s job this year.  The Vikes will have a top 5 choice in 2012.

The Seahawks are also 0-2 and depending on a college coach  to bail them out of this mess.  He won’t  and the team continues to spiral downward out of control.  Any judge of talent that thought that QB  Jackson could be an NFL starter should lose his job.

Two teams that are not in as bad shape as those above are  the Rams and the Panthers.

The Rams have had some critical injuries but have turned the  ball over too often to beat NFC East teams the Eagles and Giants.  They will likely win the NFC West but are a  couple of players from being competitive against the best teams in the  conference.

The Panthers are breaking in a new coach and new QB.  QB Newton is far from a quality NFL starter  but has shown some good things.  The team  has some very solid players including one of the best centers in the league in  Kalil, a solid RB in Williams  and star  WR in Smith.  They have added some good  defensive rookies and is turning the team around.  They are in a tough division but will be  better as the season wears on.

That is what I think.
Tell me what you think.
