Default are there any great teams this year? doesnt seem like it.

everyone this year is not that good. colts barely won, NO just lost. ravens and pitt are the only teams who appear to be well above average at this point, and i think most years, these teams woiuld be around 8-10th best. any ideas why its so even, in a bad way, this year?

Schefter posted that this is the first year we don't have a 4 & 0 team since 1970.

You can see the pundits openly struggling when they do their power rankings.

Hence my in waivering confidence for next week.

Yeah, nearly every team has a question mark. Normally there are 2-4 teams at this point where you can pencil them in the playoffs and say "watch out facing this team in January".
Pittsburgh is the closest team IMO to saying that about mainly due to their defense which is awesome.

Agree, good thread. Just today Chargers lose to Raiders, Saints lose to Cardinals, Texans get blown out at home by the Giants, Packers lose to the Redskins, Bengals lose at home to the Bucs. Ridiculous.

Saints lose to the Cardinals.

Bears win. With Todd Collins throwing for 32 yards.

I agree with you. Pittsburgh because of that defense. But as we saw they have their problems too. I've never struggled with picks so much. Which team will show up. I think it's great though, each week is so interesting and entertaining.

Thing I can't figure out is where was this running game of theirs up until this week. **** sit Cutler and just run.

ive said it before, hanie might give the bears the best chance to win right now. you saw last week against the giants how the sack total went down when collins went in, and hanie actually has potential in the NFL. cutler, my god imagine trying to coach him?

Ravens, Steelers, Colts, Jets are all really good teams... In the NFC I would say the Giants & Falcons are playing the best right now... Green Bay has been decimated with the Grant injury. Minny might be legit now with Moss and kek pics out of the way!

colts barely beat the chiefs, giants and falcons have HUGE question marks. ravens, steelers and jets are the potentially top 3 teams until someone distinguishes themselves.

Steelers will be scary good when their real QB comes back. They convincingly beat everyone they played in weeks 1-3 with a 4th string QB doing most of the work, and then barely lost to a very good Ravens team.

The Ravens are as good as they looked against us, I'm afraid. I live in Baltimore so I see a lot of Ravens games. This is probably the best Ravens team I've seen. Certainly the most complete team.

If Sanchez keeps playing like he has the first 4 games the Jets are real good. Not sure he ends up doing that but if so, then they are going to be good.

I still think Indianapolis is a great team. The kinks may be showing a bit more, but you knew sooner or later they weren't going to be able to keep beating Jax and Hou by like 3 points each. They will be in the playoffs unless Manning goes down.

I think those 4 are the teams to beat.

I don't have confidence in any team from the NFC.
