    Power Rankings and first quarter awards by me, along with some of the league leaders

    2006 Power Rankings: Regular Season (Week 5 Oct 3 )

    by thetombradyhater

    1. Colts(1) - Peyton Manning leads the Colts on two impressvie drives late in the game to hold on for a victory over the Jets.

    2. Bears(4)- Beating down the Seahawks on national TV proves Da Bears are among the elite

    3. Ravens(7)- Steve McNair was the missing link in previous years, McNair showed his worth by marching the Ravens down the field with the clock winding down to give the Ravens the win.

    4. Broncos(8 )- The Broncos rise during a bye week as a few top teams loose (Chargers, Bengals, Jaguars, ect)

    5. Seahawks(3)- The loss hurts but if its any consalation it came against the new ruler of the NFC

    6. Patriots(16)- Laurence Maroney could be a 1,000 yard rusher for the next 10+ years, I allready can see him as a multi ple time pro bowler and posiibly a Hall of Famer

    7.Chargers(5)-Well its only one loss.

    8. Bengals(2)- The Bengals Defence just could not stop the Pats run gamee at all

    9. Eagles(11)- The first half of the game was ugly for the Eagles a team that was suppose to win with realitive ease, but when the secondhalf began the Eagles were a new team.

    10. Falcons(15)- If you give the Falcons a pass for last week, they look like a good team

    11.Cowboys(12)- TO returns and the Cowboys offense explodes

    12.Panthers(16)- 2-0 with Steve Smith 0-2 without him.

    13. Jaguars(6) - Santana Moss and Mark Brunell (among others) teared apart the Jags D that seemed unstopable against the Steelers

    14. Steelers(13 )- Big game for the Steelers next week against the Chargers, a win could prove that they still are a very good NFL team, and a loss could be a knockout punch

    15. Saints(9)-The Saints return to reality after a magical homecoming last week

    16. Redskins(21)- A very impressive win from a team that looked like could be done with a loss

    17. Rams(18 )- The Rams are 3-1, not bad.

    18. Giants(17)- The Giants could have easily been winless right now

    19. Bills(20)- JP Losman finally has the offense workng well this year

    20. Jets(19)-Miracle final play almost worked, almost.

    21. Vikings(10)- After staring the season on a very high note the Vikings luck has changed quickly

    22. Chiefs(22) -The Chiefs defense had a shutout! Oh wait it was against the 49ers, that doesn't even count. _

    23. Browns(28 )- Solid comeback win over the Raiders

    24. Texans(31)- Texans pull an upset on a team with playoff hopes this year

    25. Cardinals( 25)- At least Matt Leinart is in now

    26. Dolphins(26)- Where Ricky Williams whe you need him?

    27.Packers(23)- At least it was close at halftime

    28. 49ers(25)- The 49ers return to their place dropping back out of the Top 25.

    29.Buccaneers(27)- Doesn't look good for the team that was superbowl champions not to long ago

    30. Lions(29)-No matter what they try the lions can't seem to win

    31. Titans(30)-You miss Steve McNair?

    32. Raiders(32) - Randy Moss gets a whopping 1 catch in Sundays loss

    *number in ( ) is last weeks power rankings*

    First Quarter Awards

    Offensive Rookie: Laurence Maroney
    Maroney is amazing. Ever ince I saw him run in the preseason this year I knew he would be special. Maroney absolutely killed the Bengals this week.
    Honorable Mentions: Marques Colston, Greg Jennings, Reggie Bush

    Defensive Rookie: Kamerion Wimbley
    Wimbley, Clevland Browns outside linebacker is having a strong year. Wimbley has a 3 sacks along with 12 total tackles
    Honorable Mentions: Donte Whitner, Demeco Ryans, Keith Ellison

    Comeback Player: Donovan McNabb
    One year after having major problems with injury and TO McNabb comes back and is having a career year. The Eagles are shocking everyone and are 3-1 (they easily could be undefeated)
    Honorable Mentions: Rex Grossman, and Kellen Winslow JR

    Most Surprising Team:New Orleans
    After bring in Drew Brees and Reggie Bush this offseason most people expected the Saints to be better then last year. But only a quarter of the way thru this season the Saints have already matched their 2005 win total.
    Honorable Mentions: Rams, and Falcons

    Most Disappointing teamDolphins
    After ending last year with seven straight wins and finishing 9-7 the Dolphins had high hopes for this year. They brought in QB Daunte Culpepper, but it just hasn’t worked so far. The Dolphins are 1-3 and will need to reel off an impressive string of games like last year if they have any hope of even smelling the playoffs.
    Dishonorable Mentions: Steelers, Chiefs, Buccaneers, and Giants

    Worst Team:The Raiders
    Despite having Randy Moss their offense is pitiful last in total offense and tied for last in scoring offense. On top of that they are tied for 29th in turnover margin. When the Raiders finally have a good game to start, against the Browns, they can't hold on for a victory.
    Dishonorable Mentions: Lions, Titans, and Buccaneers

    Best Team:Colts
    Edgerrin James is gone but Peyton Manning and the offense is as good as ever (well almost). So far the Passing game has been amazing as usual and though the running game isn’t what it was with Edge, it isn’t shabby and is enough to get by with. The defense has played good enough and when the Colts needed a lift most the Special Teams came up with it as the Colts returned a punt for a TD
    Honorable Mentions: Bears and Ravens

    Best Defensive Player: Julius Peppers
    Julius Peppers is playing very good racking up 5 sacks and 22 tackles in 4 games. Peppers is on pace to have his best season yet.
    Honorable Mentions: Rashean Mathis, Angelo Crowell, Shawne Merriman

    MVP Donovan McNabb
    Right now the Eagles could be undefeated, due in large amounts to their team leader Donovan McNabb. McNabb is third in the league in passer rating and first in both Passing Yards and Passing touchdowns. On top of that McNabb has two rushing touchdowns and only one interception. Honorable Mentions: Peyton Manning and Rex Grossman

    I spent endless hours on this staying up untill the wee hours of the morning, working my butt of for this. I put myblood sweat and tears into this yet I get no comments whatsoever. What has the world come to? A place where I will no longer be appreciated!?!?!!!



































































    Kidding, it didn't take that long and I actually did it for another website. But I am surprised no one has any comments on this

    They'll get there.

    Nice work, agree on most of the stuff except:

    Bears as the Best Team. See "Sunday night game vs. Seahawks"

    MVP: Peppers. His season so far is awsome.

    Nice work....but I think Tom Brady should be MVP









    just kidding of course.

    I guess I agree with your awards for the most part but I don't believe they will hold up season long. For instance McNabb for MVP....so far so good....but he has put those numbers up against teams ranked 18, 24, 27 and 28 and all 4 of those teams have horrible defenses.

    Actually DePack, if Brady can get THAT Pats team into the playoffs, I think he merits nominatino for MVP.

    It's not like the Pats are horrible. Just because they aren't what they once were doesn't mean they are bad. I'm pretty sure he didn't have to do pretty much anything against the Bengals (see Laurence Maroney).
