The Great, the good, the bad and the ugly


Two things prompt me to want to write this: I can't remember the last time I felt there was such a distinct 3-tier quality separation in the NFL, and I feel like the league has been turned upside down in a few places. Like Tennesee.


The Great: The elite teams in the NFL are, in no particular order, Colts, Broncos, Giants, Saints, and Vikings. You might even want to add the Bengals to this category at this point.

The good: Trailing just behind but capable of winning any matchup therein are the Jets, Pats, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Philly, Atlanta, Chicago, Green Bay, Arizona, San Fran, San Diego, and Seattle.

The bad and ugly: Buffalo, Miami, Tennesee, Houston, Cleveland, Oakland, KC, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Detroit, and St. Louis are all SO AMAZINGLY HORRIBLE that I resolve to never pick any of these teams to win, and when they play each other my sole criteria will be the Home team.

So what happened? Here are my Bizarro rankings:

1. Tennessee -- The Titans have lost games through week 4 than they lost last season. Enough said.

2. Cincinnati -- minus TJ Houshmanzadeh, the Bengals have already equaled their '08 win total.

3. Panthers -- What on Earth happened? It's the SAME team that went 12-4 in '08.

4. Broncos -- 8-8 last year, lost Shanahan, "downgraded" at QB, team on the verge of mutiny ... if by mutiny you mean greatness.

5. Dolphins -- Is Parcells asleep at the helm? There is little chance they repeat as division champs, may struggle for .500
