SPORTS YAPP: Week 13 Power Rankings

1. Green Bay Packers- I think they proved to the national audience on Thanksgiving that their hopes of an undefeated season are still very much alive.

2. Baltimore Ravens- They remind me of last year’s Packers because they are a little under the radar but have a great chance to make a deep run in the playoffs.

3. New England Patriots- They appear to be getting better every week, so we can stop doubting them for now.

4. New Orleans Saints- So…the Saints have the best offense in the league? I think it’s fair to say that’s true.

5. San Francisco 49ers- Jim Harbaugh was right when he talked about the tough scheduling with travel and a short week leading up to the big Thanksgiving game.  However, those ended up just being excuses when he couldn’t take down his brother’s Ravens… Continue reading

SPORTS YAPP: Week 11 Power Rankings

1. Green Bay Packers – Despite a little scare from the Bucs, the Packers win again. They will have to establish the running game in the next few weeks though.

2. San Francisco 49ers – I’m very excited to see the Harbaugh brothers coach against each other on Thanksgiving. How will Alex Smith handle the Ravens defense?

3. Baltimore Ravens – I think I rank the Ravens higher than most people, but they have enough strong pieces to be considered a top team in my eyes.

4. New England Patriots – Their tight end, Rob Gronkowski, continues to steal the headlines for a team that’s improving.

5. Detroit Lions – They have shown they can score and they have shown they can shut people down. Now they need to do both consistently during the same game. Continue reading

SPORTS YAPP: Week 9 Power Rankings

1. Green Bay Packers- If they want to go undefeated, they will. 2. Baltimore Ravens- Joe Flacco and the Ravens got a much-needed confidence boost by completing their sweep against the Steelers. 3. San Francisco 49ers- We may not know the names of the players that score their touchdowns, but the 49ers keep winning. 4. New York Jets- They were humbled with their slow start to the season. But they appear to have things back on track. 5. New York Giants- They don’t always look pretty when they win, but that’s all they seem to do. 6. Detroit Lions- I’m curious to see how their running game looks the rest of the year. Will Jahvid Best get back on the field? 7. Pittsburgh Steelers- The regular season is always important, but the playoffs are more important. That’s when we will find out what the Steelers are all about. 8. New Read More

SPORTS YAPP: Thoughts and Power Rankings

1. Green Bay Packers- Aaron Rodgers puts on a show every week. It’s not unrealistic to wonder if they can go undefeated.

2. Detroit Lions- They probably should have held on to the lead against the 49ers, but one loss may be beneficial for them. They were starting to get a lot of attention, and this loss can be a mini wake up call.

3. New Orleans Saints- Drew Brees has been such a clutch quarterback in New Orleans, but he was the opposite of that down the stretch against the Bucs. No need to panic, but it was surprising.

4. Buffalo Bills- Ryan Fitzpatrick took the blame for the loss to the Giants… Continue reading

SPORTS YAPP: Week One Power Rankings

Here are my thoughts and Power Rankings following Week 1 in the NFL…

1. Green Bay Packers- I feel even more confident about them repeating as Super Bowl champs.

2. Baltimore Ravens- They showed they could absolutely dominate their biggest rival. They are in for a big season.

3. New England Patriots- Tom Brady showed how amazing he still is, if people may have forgotten.

4. New York Jets- They pulled out a crazy win over Dallas, but that’s what they do. They WIN!

5. Philadelphia Eagles- I thought they might have slipped in Week 1 because of all the hype, but they are going to be an elite team all year… Continue reading
