2011 Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

The NFL suspended Suh for two games for this move on Thanksgiving Day.

Every NFL season has its fair share of surprises and upsets. Actually, it’s safe to say that even having an NFL season this year came as a surprise, right?

Before the season began, a friend of mine showed me a sheet he brought back from Vegas. On the left side of the page was each team. On the right side of the page was a number. The number represented the number of wins for each team. The challenge was to pick over or under.

With 6 as the magic number, would you have bet over or under for the Bengals? I would have said no. (more…)

Will Jim give his brother a soft handshake on Turkey Day?

Thanks to the Eagles getting a win over the Giants, I can’t write an article this week about how far away the Eagles are from being a “Dream Team”. I will give credit where credit is due and must say that Vince Young played well for a quarterback who hasn’t started all season. Do I expect him to stay behind center if Vick is ready? Well. My answer is that Young can keep dreaming. No pun intended.

The Patriots are on a two-game losing streak and now face a road game against the Jets

Do you know when was the last time Tom Brady lost a regular season home game? I’ll tell you when it was: November 12, 2006 against the Jets.

Last weeks loss to the Giants ended a couple of noteworthy streaks:

-Wins in 31 regular-season starts at home for Brady (an NFL record)

-20 regular-season home games for the Patriots

Enough of the bad news though. Let me highlight some of the positive news coming from the Patriots locker room. Um. Um. Oh yeah, they got rid of Albert Haynesworth. Considering the Patriots actually had a top ten rushing defense, I don’t know if this will make them better or worse.

Now, on to the bad news once again: (more…)

Big Ben finally got the best out of the Patriots

The media barely covered quarterback acquisitions in the offseason until Kolb signed with the Cardinals. Then all the hype/speculation went through the roof. Kolb was going to take the Cardinals to the next level. He was going to make the Eagles regret losing him. He was going to hook up with Fitzgerald more times than Kim Kardashian would hook up with athletes. He was going to take the Cardinals straight to top of the NFC West.

But then Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers got in the way of Kolb and the entire NFC West.
