Green Bay Packers (4-4): The Packers at least looked like they were losing to the good teams and beating the bad teams...but then they lost to the Bucs and ruined our hopes of a team going 0-16. At .500, they're a mediocre team and 8-8 looks like "at best" for this team. - EHH.
Houston Texans (5-4): They started out with a bit of inconsistency, but rolled off 3 straight wins, and really gave the Colts a scare. They are a very improved team from the Texans we've grown accustomed to seeing, and for their vast improvements, they get a decent mark. - MM-HAH!
Indianapolis Colts (8-0): Yes, they have a new head coach, but is this really any surprise? They've had a couple scares the past 2 weeks, but they hung on. They won't go undefeated, but they're still in great shape to reclaim their throne atop the AFC South. - MM-HAH!
Jacksonville Jaguars (4-4): They have a pretty crappy schedule for the most part, but they're still a mediocre team. They ruined the Titans' chances of 0-16, got shut out by Seattle 41-0, and their only win against a decent team was the Texans, and even that was close. Hell they almost lost to the Rams! They might be the worst .500 team in the league. - FEH!
Kansas City Chiefs (1-7): This team is pathetic. Matt Cassel could be 100% healthy the whole year and they'd still be 2-6 at best. Their only win was against the Redskins, bravo, now there's something to be proud of. They do have a pretty tough schedule, but they still couldn't beat the Jags or Raiders. They still have to play the Broncos twice, the Chargers, Bengals, and Steelers, that's 5 guaranteed losses at least. - FEH!
Miami Dolphis (3-5): They've shown flashes of greatness, but they're still way behind what they were last year. Let it be known though that Chad Pennington getting hurt has actually helped this team, the offense has been much better without him. Since their losses have all at least been to good teams, I'll go easy on them. - EHH.
Minnesota Vikings (7-1): Their schedule for the first half of the year included quite a few "tomato cans," but they did manage to sweep the Packers and hung on for dear life at home against the Ravens. Then Brett Favre blew the game at Heinz Field. This team is still for real though, and they shouldn't lose very many more games the rest of the year. - MM-HAH!
New England Patriots (6-2): Brady is back, and it looks like he's finally returning to his old self. Granted it took 2 blowouts against the Titans and Bucs to get back to form, but they're still atop the AFC East once again. They have a huge test coming up this week at Indy, but they still look to be back in cruise control for another division title. - MM-HAH!
New Orleans Saints (8-0): They've had a few scares the last 3 weeks, but they've found ways to win. Will they go undefeated? Probably not, but they should easily have a first round bye in the NFC. Their offense has stayed red hot, and this year their defense is vastly improved. - MM-HAH!
New York Giants (5-4): They started off 5-0, mm-hah, everything was going great! Now the wheels have come off and they've lost 4 in a row, feh! They have a bye now, and it's the perfect time for one. We'll meet in the middle for this one, and simply give the G-men a half-a$$ed grade. - EHH.
We'll finish up this report on page 3.
