Mr. N’s #NFL Preseason Power Poll Teams # 16-13 #NFLTrainingCamp #NFLPreseason


NFL Power Rankings

 

Hey everyone, here is the next 4…

 

16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – A preseason fave amongst many prognosticator but I can’t get past what is a pretty tough schedule. They will be better but to really improve they will have to slay a lot of beasts.

 

if they can’t get it working – 6-10
likely 8-8 (but a tough 8-8)
If they can slay a few – 11-5

 

15. Denver Broncos – People seem to forget that not having a decent QB made Denver who they are. If the officials call pass interference more often, they won’t be so strong in the secondary either. With no QB, they are likely on the outside looking in.

 

If it’s bad – 6-10
likely – 9-7
If they find a QB – 10-6

 

14. Tennessee Titans – the preseason darling of many an expert. They have a lot going for them on O and D but they have a bit of a tough schedule.

 

if they stumble – 7-9
likely – 10-6
If they win a lot in their division – 11-5

 

13. Seattle Seahawks – Boy they have a tough schedule. They will need everything to work to get it done.

 

if it doesn’t work – 9-7
Likely – 11-5
If they make it work – 13-3

 

That is it for now.

 

12-9 is next sometime!

NFL Power Rankings

 

Here is part 2 of my preseason prognostication…

 

24 – Miami Dolphins – This team was a top 15 in my early thinking and then they lost Tannehill and brought in Cutler. Nuff said.

If all goes Bad Cutler – 3-13
If all goes likely Cutler – 5-11
if Cutler doesn’t play like a total putz – 7-9

 

23 – Philadelphia Eagles – They have Wentz getting better but now have a bit of a mixed bag of receivers and still are trying to get their legs under them with RB and TE. The D can be solid but without a fully functional O this could be another rough year in Philly.

 

If all is bad – 4-12
In all likelihood – 6-10
If Wentz is super – 8-8

 

22 – Indianapolis Colts – This team wasn’t very good with Andrew Luck healthy and now he is dinged up and coming back slowly from injury. This is not going to be a good year for the Colts.

 

If all bad – 5-11
If they are ok – 7-9
If Luck is superb – 9-7

 

21 – Cincinnati Bengals – They missed the playoffs last year for first time in 5 years and this year…it will be twice in a row. They are getting old and not getting better and their hope is based on people who haven’t played well yet will play better. Good luck with that.

 

If the year explodes – 5-11
all likely – 8-8
if Dalton has a little magic – 10-6

 

20 – Detroit Lions – A team that persistently has a dark cloud over their head and never gets any breaks or luck. They aren’t much better and they plan to dump tons of $$$ on Stafford who has never done anything. He is the dictionary definition that throwing for 5,000 yards doesn’t mean much any more.

 

If very Detroit like – 4-12
If they play like they could – 8-8
If they play 60 all the time – 9-7

 

19 – Washington Redskins – The only break they have caught this year is to have Elliott suspended on Dallas. They have a QB who is probably mad at management and they seem to lack a lot on D. No Division title here.

 

if it’s bad – 4-12
they are probably – 8-8
Their best is – 9-7

 

18 – New Orleans Saints – Brees and his O take this team as far as it goes. The D still (STILL) has issues. They are the same team they have been for years.

 

if they are bad – 5-11
If they are who they are – 8-8
if the outscore many – 10-6

 

17 – Baltimore Ravens – A team that did a lot for D but did Nothing for O except lose 2 starting linemen. They are getting old and can’t score any points.

 

If they get old fast a dismal – 3-13
If they are ok – 8-8
If Flacco has a great year – 10-6.

 

There you have it!

 

Top 16 left…

 

either in 4’s or 8’s time depending!

Hey everyone! The off-season has come to an end, the regular season is just about 4 and a 1/2 weeks from now and now is the time to whet people’s appetites for the fun that is to come!

 

I will be doing my Preseason power poll as a backwards countdown from 32 to 1.

 

We start with the bottom 8…

 

32. The New York Jets – A team that has embraced the word tank. They divested themselves of most key veterans and have done little to put any talent out at the majority of their positions. They are aiming to get QB Sam Darnold with the first pick *the fly in that ointment is that Darnold may not go pro but that would be Jet luck.

 

Worst and most likely case – 0-16
Best case scenario – 3/13

 

31. Chicago Bears – A team that traded the moon for a QB and now must pay the piper. They have RBs, a decent O line and better D than before but there is an atmosphere of free falling here and they play a tough schedule.

 

Worst Case – 1/15
Likely – 2/14
Best Case – 4/12

 

30. Buffalo Bills – The Ralph will be the scene of much Ralphing this year with this group on the field. Led by an ownership group that doesn’t seem to have any direction, this team is going to struggle.

 

Worst Case – 2/14
Likely – 3/13
Best – 5/11

 

29. San Francisco 49ers – New regime and they are building a good base but they need to grow together and get experience and that will take time. They are also in a pretty tough division so the learning part may not be pretty early.

 

Worst Case – 3/13
Likely – 4/12
Best Case – 5/11

 

28. Miami Dolphins – This team was going to be a top 15 but then Tannehill got hurt and they dug the rotting corpse of Jay Cutler out of his football grave and gave him the starting QB job. Any hope this team had went south with Cutler trying to sign his contract but over throwing the pen and signing the plant on the desk.

 

Worst Case – 2/14
Likely – 4/12
Best – 5/11

 

27. Cleveland Browns – They are not going to be as bad as they have been lately simply because other teams are worse and they get to play them. They are getting a bit more talent and may challenge teams more consistently as they grow.

 

Worst case – 2/14
Likely – 4/12
Best case – 6/10

 

26. Los Angeles Rams – A team trying to grow with a young QB who needs to learn fast. They may yet get something going with Goff but this is a tough Division and they have a hard sked.

 

Worst case – 3/13
Likely 6/10
Best case – 7/9

 

25. Los Angeles Chargers – A new town, an old QB and a tiny little stadium to play in this year. A head coach with no experience but a D that is getting better. They have already suffered a key injury losing who was touted as potential offensive rookie of the year (Mike Williams WR).

 

Worst case – 4/12
Likely – 6/10
Best – 8/8

 

Next post starts with team 24…
