NFL Power Rankings WEEK 2

Wednesday, September 17, 2008 ·

From here on out, I will be posting my version of the NFL's power rankings. We know this is a pro-Eagles page, so I will try my best not to be biased. So, here we go.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) - another year, another great defense. Their first real test will be Sunday in Philly.

2. Dallas Cowboys (2-0) - They beat us. What can you say? They're good. I think the secondary injuries will soon take a toll, but their offense is filled with playmakers.

3. New York Giants (2-0) - Spagnulo is still putting together a great defense and Eli may have finally turned the corner.

4. Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) - Probably too high, but it is hard to not put them here after their impressive effort in Dallas. Best run defense in football.

5. New England Patriots (2-0) - No real test yet, but they have a coach who always finds a way to win. Margins may shrink, but I'm not sure about the win.

6. Green Bay Packers (2-0) - Good offense, below average defense. Big test against Dallas.

7. Denver Broncos (2-0) - Best offense in football, but remind me of West Virginia football. Not a good enough defense for the big game.

8. Indianapolis Colts (1-1) - Losing Bob Sanders will extremely hurt their poor run defense.

9. Carolina Panthers (2-0) - They're playing great football right now without Steve Smith. We need them to lose 14 straight!

10. Buffalo Bills (2-0) - Not great in any department, but they're good enough to make a run at the Patriots.

11. Tennesse Titans (2-0)
12. San Diego Chargers (0-2)

The Packers have a below average defense? Let's see if the Packers allow 41 points to get dropped on their heads this Sunday night.

The Packers didn't get to play the Rams to make that stat work.

nice effort Packers.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
