Thanks for checking out my NFL power rankings for week six of the 2010 NFL season. This has been a strange season from the trade of future Hall of Fame player Randy Moss to there being no undefeated teams after week five. Feel free to heap praise or insults on my NFL power rankings for week six. This was written before the Vikings played the Jets on Monday.
32 Carolina Panthers
The Panthers cut many veteran players in a cost cutting move and didn’t replace them. Lame duck coach John Fox was forced to go into the season with three young quarterbacks and a slew of rookie wide receivers. Due to poor offense this team may not win a game in 2010.
31 Buffalo Bills
Ok yes the Bills do suck and even cut their former starting quarterback Trent Edwards. But at least they have the potential to score points.
30 Cleveland Browns
This team has some of the pieces but lack of a quarterback and a quality coaching staff hurts them.
29 St. Louis Rams
I love Sam Bradford but the team sucks on defense and is banged up on offense.
28 San Francisco 49ers
Mike Singletary has lost this team and actually had two players retire rather than play for the 49ers. There is enough talent to win the terrible NFC West but not under this coach.
27 Detroit Lions
The Lions are scrappy and actually have a good offense even with a backup quarterback in Hill. But the Lions defense is a year or more away from respectability.
26 Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks have an old quarterback and a coach who left college football because his players had to take a pay cut to play in the NFL. I do respect the trade to get Lynch to help their running game. I just wonder if somebody can sue them for bringing a known criminal into Seattle.
25 Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals have gone back to what they were before their Super Bowl run. A team that won’t spend money to win.
24 Oakland Raiders
The Raiders at least have heart and Al Davis seems to be meddling less than he usually does.
23 Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys have imploded and will cost Wade Phillips his job maybe even before the season ends.
22 Denver Broncos
Denver has the best quarterback in the NFL that nobody talks about in Kyle Orton, sadly that is about all they have.
21 San Diego Chargers
They are not the team they used to be and need some playmakers on offense to help Gates and Rivers.
20 Cincinnati Bengals
Carson Palmer is not having a good season and it’s hurting this team badly.
19 Minnesota Vikings
Favre is old and possibly a pervert. The rest of the team is just old but Randy Moss may strike a spark or split the locker room.
18 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs are a year away but Josh Freeman is playing some outstanding football for a 2nd year NFL quarterback.
17 Philadelphia Eagles
A decent offense that is pretty good when Vick is playing but a bad O line. Defense misses the late Jim Johnson more and more.
16 Green Bay Packers
All flash and no substance. Team can’t win big games with an old but opportunistic defense and no running game.
15 Miami Dolphins
A franchise quarterback away from being really good.
14 Tennessee Titans
Great running game and an improving passing game along with a decent but not great defense makes this team a little dangerous.
13 Jacksonville Jaguars
The offense is improving but I am not sure the team will keep Del Rio’s job for him when, they fall off.
12 Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have an improving defense and good special teams, but no passing game will hurt them in the end.
11 Chicago Bears
A year away on offense but does Lovie Smith have another year?
10 Washington Redskins
Solid under Shanahan and McNabb but lack of overall talent will catch up with them this season.
9 New England Patriots
Solid but the running game needs help and Moss won’t be missed except on the field.
8 New York Giants
Bradshaw, Nicks and Manning are some nice weapons and the defense finally showed up.
7 New Orleans Saints
This banged up team will be much improved if/when Brees and the gang gets healthy.
6 Houston Texans
Houston has a running game and a great passing game but the defense leaves a little to be desired.
5 Atlanta Falcons
They need to stay healthy but this team will be dangerous in the playoffs with that running game.
4 Indianapolis Colts
I probably have them ranked too high due to Peyton Manning. This team is not near as good as last year.
3 Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers come in at number three on my NFL power rankings for week six. Big Ben will make this team nearly unbeatable if he is on his A game and don’t upset the team chemistry.
2 Baltimore Ravens
The offense is not quite as good as I thought it would be and the defense is showing their age. But the Ravens are hard to beat.
1 New York Jets
I thought the Jets were overrated due to Mark Sanchez but he has stepped up. They need some help for LaDainian Tomlinson though if he shows his age.
