Philly2Philly.com NFL Power Rankings Week 14: Patriots' Brady shows Jets' Sanchez who his daddy is


Bless me father for I have sinned... I had to skip my NFL Power Rankings column last week due to unforeseen circumstances. Please allow me back into your NFL Power Rankings heart.

For Week 14, since there was no Week 13 NFL Power Rankings, I think it best to start fresh, clean if you will. Well not entirely fresh, perhaps mildly fresh. I won't include the previous ranking as per the norm.

I will shut up now.

1. Patriots - I said from the outset of this season (hence my selecting him for my fantasy team) that Tom Brady had a Sgt. Hulka photo: http://www.movieactors.com/photos/stripes127.jpegchip on his shoulder. Like Sgt Hulka is the big toe, the Jets and Mark Sanchez  are that chip. Beware though this week for letdown game in Chi-town.

2. Steelers - Do you think Roethlisberger has made amends with the Steelers fans for his off-season indiscretions? Wonder if someone like Albert Haynesworth would have kept playing with a broken nose? Oh wait, he sits when gets shampoo in his eyes. Never mind.

3. Falcons - Matty Ice is for real, kids. He is the second coming of Tom Brady... or is it Peter Brady? It sure as hell isn't cousin Oliver.

4. Packers - Yeah I know the Bears have a better record. Big freakin deal. The Packers are the better team. Period. Now go get your shine box.

5. Saints - Looks like Drew & Co. didn't need that Bush in the hand after all, huh? Well, at least not yet. Do not look past the Rams this week.

6. Eagles - I know, the Eagles beat the Falcons. I know! The Falcons have a better defense, kids. Hell, half of the Top 10 in college may have a better defense than the Birds. Ok, that was a cheap shot.

7. Bears - Sorry, not buying into the Jay Cutler-mania that's sweeping... the South Side. Nope. He's a turnover waiting to happen. An apple turnover. No, cherry. Yeah, always loved cherry turnovers.

8. Giants - Paging Dr Jekyll, there's a Mister Hyde on the phone for you.

9. Ravens - I know Matt Ryan and you Joe Flacco are no Matt Ryan. Suddenly all the comparisons between the two young signal-callers have stopped. Wonder why...

10. Jaguars - You were expecting maybe the Jets? Um, no. The Jaguars are playing some of the best football no one knows about.
