Mr. N’s #NFL Conference Championship Power Poll‏ #NFLPlayoffs

NFL Power Rankings

1.            Carolina Panthers (1) – The Panthers got out to their now typical fast start but unlike other weeks they never let up.  The Rush offense was unstoppable, Caaaaaaam was brilliant, the D was fierce and unbeatable.  Before the dust settled Carolina was up multiple scores.  The only question left was would Carolina put up a 50 burger.  That was answered when they finally took the foot off the gas with less than 2 minutes left.  A complete and total domination of a good team.  It is hard to see how any team can beat this balanced beast now.

2.            Denver Broncos (4) – Denver brought their A game on Defense and dominated the game from the start.  Manning looked better than he had all year.  He kept making throws.  In fact, Peyton Manning kept tossing some H eckuva G ood H urls throughout the game!  The Broncs had the Pats down and nearly out but they went into a version of prevent and allowed New England to move all over the field and come within two points.  They finally stopped the 2-point conversion and recovered onside desperation and Denver wins!  They likely will be massacred in the Super Bowl and Peyton should retire but congrats Denver.

3.            Arizona Cardinals (2) – Arizona came out and wanted to test how golden turnovers can be.  They proved they are 24k .99999 pure gold.  If Carson wasn’t tossing multiple picks, he was being sacked and fumbling.  Add to that a special teams fumble by Patrick Peterson and you had the recipe for a blowout.  Big Arizona, on both O and D line, was pushed around by Carolina.  They were overmatched and thoroughly defeated.  A complete butt whipping.  Take heart Arizona, you are close but you may just need a better QB.  Carson Palmer has I think taken a team as far as his ability will go.  A good year that ended with a bad loss.

4.            New England Patriots (3) – The Pats came out with their best planned cheat and found a buzz saw of D.  Brady was pounded, punished and pummeled.  The uncoverable receivers were covered, battered and knocked around.  With more 3 and outs than first downs it was fun to watch the first half.  The Pats were able to move the ball late against the Denver version of prevent.  New England is like Jason from Friday the 13th.  It seemed for a while they would simply just not die.  They got to within 2 and blew the 2 point and seemed beat.  They went for an onside and somehow didn’t do it legally and FINALLY the EVIL CHEATING SCUMBAG PATRIOT team is defeated.  I guess Romo can see Brady in February…they can get together in Cancun for some sun and not Super Bowl playing.  A good loss for a team that only got this far by cheating.  How did that one feel Bill and Brady? Felt pretty good to me!

5.            Kansas City Chiefs.

6.            Green Bay Packers.

7.            Pittsburgh Steelers.

8.            Seattle Seahawks – Evidently Marshawn Lynch is going to retire.  Smart if he does as his body won’t keep taking that pounding much longer.

9.            Minnesota Vikings.

10.          Washington Redskins.

11.          Cincinnati Bengals.

12.          Houston Texans.

13.          New York Jets.

14.          Indianapolis Colts.

15.          Detroit Lions.

16.          Buffalo Bills – Buffalo hires the first ever full time Female coach.  Who cares? If she can do the job, then good for her.  I will be happy when gender and sex orientation is just a non-issue the way skin color should be.

17.          Philadelphia Eagles.

18.          New Orleans Saints

19.          Miami Dolphins.

20.          Oakland Raiders – Will Oakland end up as the NFL team in England by 2022?  It appears that isn’t outside the realm of impossibility.

21.          New York Giants.

22.          Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

23.          Jacksonville Jaguars.

24.          San Diego Chargers.

25.          Baltimore Ravens.

26.          Atlanta Falcons.

27.          Los Angeles Rams.

28.          San Francisco.

29.          Chicago BEARS.

30.          Cleveland Browns.

31.          Tennessee Titans.

32.          Dallas Cowboys – The first Daniel Jeremiah Mock Draft has Dallas taking a QB in the first round.  That would be smart, they sure do need a QB.

 As always, I love all thoughts, comments, arguments or agreements.  I appreciate someone reading my views.  I would also offer my analysis work to ESPN as some of theirs need help or I will take cash, preferably tens and twenties!
