    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 16

    2009 continues to be the season of year of mediocrity, so thank God it’s over! Happy new years people, and what a sombre note to end the year on. Yes the final game of 2009 was a spetacular gunsling-fest starring the Brett Favre of old (AKA Brett Favre!) and the possibly, dare I say it, […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 15

    This can be done better by people elsewhere, but I wanted to say that regardless of his off the field issues (I’m not absolving him of convicted crimes like some seem ready to do), on his day Chris Henry could ball. It’s the job of those who know him better to really say whether he […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 14

    The NFL sucks this season. As a fan we’ve been treated as usual (New York/Philadelphia was like a Seagal movie, and I looooove Seagal), but as far as quality teams go, the talent is scarce. It’s weird that in a year the MVP award could go to a perrennial QB candidate like Peyton Manning, a […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 13

    What happened to good old fashioned running of the football? Week 13 of the 2009 NFL season saw just a single running back receiver over 30 carries (Cedric Benson) and shockingly, utilising that talent won Cincinnati their matchup. Why do Jaksonville refuse to use MJD until the fourth? Why isn’t the hottest player in the […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 12

    Week 12 and Thanksgiving are the beginning of the end for the NFL regular season, and whilst there have been very few standout franchises in 2009 – actually there has been exactly three – there has been a whole lot of mediocrity and inconsistency which has left us with a playoff race consisting of an […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 11

    Welcome to week 11, the last bend before the mad dash down the home straight of the NFL season, destination playoffsville, population…? Well we know who isn’t getting there (read: Browns and Lions), but with the NFC really sucking right now it’s a wide open race. On paper, with just a single game separating the […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 10

    Best keep a low profile if you’re an NFL calibre running back right now, because the season reaper is out and hunting for victims. First to crock himself Sunday was The Burner Turner who torched his way to 111 yards on 9 touches before a right ankle sprain forced him out of Atlanta’s faltering offense […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 9

    The NFL rulebook isn’t revisionist. You can’t change it on a whim, so you may as well learn it. That would of been a novel idea for some teams in week 9, or as it’s better known ‘the week of the flag’; Sunday boasted a Falcon/Redskin melee, a Tommie Harris ejection and multiple teams penalty-ing […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 8

    However tempting it was to copy and paste the word Favre for the next 50 words I – brace yourself mainstream press – thought that other things went on between the end of week 7 and now, the bombshell aftermath of week 8. Okay, bombshell aftermath is a little strong but there are some teams […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 7

    Week: | Pre | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | Total Pro Sports – Hardly an iconic week of NFL action, just a lot of really good teams beating up on the bad, but mingled in with best and the worst were a few interesting developments. Kansas City bench […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 6

    Week: | Pre | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | Total Pro Sports – When I sat down to write the TPS Power Rankings for week 6 I was looking for ‘the word’. The one word that I could start this whole shebang off with to encapsulate what an epic week […]

  • 2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 5

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 5

    Week: | Pre | 1 | 2 | 3 | Total Pro Sports – After a one week hiatus for the TPS Power Rankings we return and not only do we bring shiny new week 5 rankings, but also a world of change; receivers with new homes, big time injuries, 6 beatdowns, 2 lots of […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 3

    Week: | Pre | 1 | 2 | 3 | Total Pro Sports – After 3 weeks of NFL action fans of the weaker teams are baying for blood, whilst fans of teams near the top of the TPS Power Rankings are peering over their shoulders as young upstarts like the Saints and Bengals claw […]

  • 2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 2

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 2

    Week: | Pre | 1 | 2 | Total Pro Sports – Look away now if tight defensive tussles are what rock your NFL boat. Week 2 just ended and points were the medicine of choice after a flat week 1; 8 teams broached 30 points, 9 matchups saw more than 45 points be scored, […]

    2009 NFL Power Rankings: Week 1

    Week: | Pre | 1 | Total Pro Sports – Does anyone remember early 90s WCW when Sting was screaming at the camera and bigging up The Shockmaster? Cue a fiery explosion and a rotund man with a Stormtroopers helmet covered in glitter (I kid you not) falling over a tiny wall and his helmet […]
