Ron Glover’s Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

Jason Campbell went 7 for 7 for 157 yards in the fourth quarter to lead the Redskins from nine-points down past the New Orleans Saints 29-24. Campbell finished 24/36 for 321 yards and a touchdown. Honorable mention: Aaron Rodgers 24/38 328 yards and three touchdowns in a victory over the Detroit Lions. And Brandon Marshall, 18 receptions 166 yards and a touchdown in a win over the San Diego Chargers.

Week 2 was one of the most entertaining weeks in recent memory, there were defensive struggles, offensive onslaughts and a head zebra that may have lost a few stripes. Just another week in the NFL.

1. Dallas Cowboys (2-0) Last Week #3: Give Tony Romo the time and protection (0 sacks) that he had Monday Night against the Eagles and the Boys are unbeatable.

2. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) Last Week #3: The Steelers may be able to steal one in Philly after the Birds emotional game in Dallas Monday night couple with a short practice week.

3. New York Giants (2-0) Last Week #1: The G-Men awoke from their slumber against the Rams, realized they were in a game and scored three touchdowns in a four minute span.

4. New England Patriots (2-0) Last Week #9: Call it what you will the bottom line is Matt Cassell hadn’t started a game since high school, and won in his first NFL start, in hostile Giants Stadium. That’s balliin’.

5. Buffalo Bills (2-0) Last Week #10: Last week the Bills did what they were supposed to do; go on the road and beat a wounded Jacksonville squad. Is Trent Edwards this year’s Derek Anderson?

6. Green Bay Packers (2-0) Last Week #13: It’s not hard for me to root for the Pack now. Aaron Rodgers is for real and the Cowboys come to Lambeau this week.

7. Carolina Panthers (2-0) Last Week #18: With Steve Smith returning to the lineup, the undefeated Panthers confidence should be sky high going into Minnesota.

8. Denver Broncos (2-0) Last Week #17: Ok, Ed Hochuli blew the call. Let’s talk about MIke Shanahan going for two.

9. Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) Last Week #6: Donovan’s fumbled handoff would be a moot point if the defensive line didn’t get manhandled.

10. Indianapolis Colts (1-1) Last Week #11: Kudos to the Colts for gutting out a win in an environment that was more hostile to their own quarterback than to the opposition.

11. Tennessee Titans (2-0) Last Week #7: With three winnable games before the bye week it’s Kerry Collins’ job to lose.

12. Chicago Bears (1-1) Last Week #8: Took one on the chin last week against the Panthers. They hope to have Devin Hester (ribs) back for the Bucs on Sunday

13. San Diego Chargers (0-2) Last Week #5: Referee Ed Hochuli blew the call. Get over it, win the next three and hope that L.T. gets healthy.

14. Arizona Cardinals (2-0) Last Week #23: The Cardinals are playing like they want to take over the division. Kurt Warner never ceases to amaze.

15. Washington Redskins (1-1) Last Week #25: Jason Campbell rallied the Skins from 14-down in the fourth quarter to get the win. Big game this week as Arizona comes to town.

16. New Orleans Saints (1-1) Last Weeks #4: As banged up as the Saints are the last thing Reggie Bush should be doing is anything to incite the opposition. Waving to the opposition on your way to the end zone isn’t a smart thing to do on the road.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) Last Week #12: It doesn’t get any easier for Jack Del Rio’s bunch as they face Indy (road), Houston, Pittsburgh and Denver (road).

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: (1-1) Last Week #21: Does anyone have worse luck with quarterbacks? I’m dying to know why a healthy Jeff Garcia is being benched.

19. New York Jets (1-1) Last Week #14: Brett Favre looked average last week, the silver lining is that three of the Jets next four are winnable games.

20. Baltimore Ravens (1-0) Last Week #20: Perfect opportunity for the Ravens to kick the rival Browns while they’re down.

21. San Francisco 49’ers (1-1) Last Week #26: Could be 3-1 before facing the Pats, Eagles and Giants.

22. Atlanta Falcons (1-1) Last Week #22: Could the Falcons be 2-1 after three games? It’s possible as the Chiefs come to town scoring only 18 points in their first two games.

23. Minnesota Vikings (0-2) Last Week #16: Don’t think for a second that Gus Frerotte is the answer here. If the Vikings brass had any brass they’d be trying to swing a deal for Jeff Garcia.

24. Cleveland Browns (0-2) Last Week #15: So much for being the sexy pick of the AFC, with two butt ugly losses, Romeo Crennel’s job may be on the line again.

25. Houston Texans (0-1) Last Week #27: The Texans begin life without a home field until further notice.

26. Seattle Seahawks (0-2) Last Week #19: The good news is that Julius Jones had a big game last week. The better news is they have the Rams this week.

27. Oakland Raiders (1-1) Last Week #30: Coach Lane Kiffin is doing his damndest to get fired but Al Davis won’t budge.

28. Kansas City Chiefs (0-2) Last Week #28: What would ranking them lower solve?

29. Miami Dolphins (0-2) Last Week #29: Was Chad Pennington that pissed at the Jets? Classic case of cutting off your nose to spite your face.

30. Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) Last Week #24: Someone throw Marvin Lewis a life raft he doesn’t deserve to go down with a ship full of rats.

31. Detroit Lions (0-2) Last Week #31: Roy Williams says he feels like a role player, the fans are calling for Matt Millen’s head once more, born-again Christian Jon Kitna is gonna drop an F-Bomb any minute now.

32. St Louis Rams (0-2) Last Week #32: The once proclaimed “Greatest Show on Turf” is averaging a whopping eight points per game.

    I didn’t watch the entire game last week, but Minny’s receivers dropped some biggies.

  2. Mizzo says:

    Big pass interference call or lack thereof on third down late in the 4th was suspect.

    Hi, I found your blog on this new directory of WordPress Blogs at I dont know how your blog came up, must have been a typo, i duno. Anyways, I just clicked it and here I am. Your blog looks good. Have a nice day. James.

    Those aren’t the best circumstances to lose your job.

    I like the list. Pretty solid from top to bottom. BTW, I like Pittsburgh to knock Philly around. 38-17.

    That short week after an emotional game may hurt my squad. Predictions tomorrow.

  6. Mizzo says:

    I expect a big game out of Sheldon and BDawk. Big Ben has some cold rock stuff comin’ his way.

  7. GrandNubian says:


    I agree…..TJax made some great throws during the course of the game but his receivers couldn’t hold on to the ones they needed to. No one in the media talks about the beautiful throw he made in the endzone in the 1st half where his receiver just dropped the ball. If that ball is caught, Minny is 1-1 and he is still the starter.


    Yes, that no call on pass interference really drained the life out of them. Also, whoever calls the plays for the Vikes is basically stealing money. That was some of the worse playcalling i’ve seen since Greg Knapp’s days in Atlanta.

    AH, can my Niners get a little love please????

  9. Eric Daniels says:

    TBR, Gruden and Garcia are at war with each other amongst things he was promised a 2 million dollar bonus for last year’s perfomance and felt that Gruden withheld him after he was healthy late in the season so they wouldn’t have to pay him for making his stats. After promising Garcia his money (Gruden is the defacto GM Allen is just a puppet) Allen said no because he is the GM not Gruden, well Allen did that to Kennan Mc Cardell when he made the pro bowl and Gruden promised him a contract extension and the Bucs traded him to the Chargers where he got his extension.

    And also Garcia is still pissed about the Bucs going after Bret Farve and publicly going to the press to criticize Gruden’s actions on the Farve and Contract situation (a big no- no in Bucland) so Gruden is trying to trade Garcia according to the Local Newspaper to prove his point, Garcia is healthy but hates Gruden’s guts, Garcia felt he did save Gruden’s job when it was on the chopping block last season so his job should have been secure.


  10. thebrotherreport says:

    If they don’t struggle against the Lions, they’ll crack the top 20.

  11. thebrotherreport says:

    I remember the whole Favre fiasco. If the Vikings want to save their season, Garcia may be the guy, Frerotte is not the answer.

  12. thebrotherreport says:

    Thanks for the update.

  13. Eric Daniels says:

    pulling the okie -doke ain’t cool when it comes to NFL players money and that’s the reason Gruden is having problems getting prime free agents.

    The Browns still look sexy its just gotta be after you turn the light on. Romeo, where for art your brass ones? Going for three when you need seven is going to drive me to an early grave. And that my friends is why Donté Stallworthless couldn’t get signed for a long deal in Philly. Hamstrung all the damn time. No way we can lose to the Joe Flacco led Ravens…is it? BROWNS 17 RAVENS 14

    No way Philly lets a injured Big Ben wreak havok on them. The sharks smell blood in the water. Now Fast Willie could be problematic. EAGLES 31 PUKESBURGH 24
