Donovan McNabb’s Week 7 Power Rankings are Wrong, Confusing

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 2.06.22 PM

The Eagles and Cowboys — both teams Donovan McNabb is very familiar with — are tied for the best record in the NFL at 5-1 (along with the Chargers). So it makes total sense that they’d be near the top of Donovan McNabb’s Power Rankings. In fact, those teams are probably the top 3, right?

1. DENVER: Still the class of the NFL. Now, let’s see if Peyton can break the all-time touchdown record this week in prime time.
2. INDIANAPOLIS: Andrew Luck leads the league in multiple categories, but it’s his play in the clutch that sets him apart.
3. SAN DIEGO: Hottest team in football almost gave one away in Oakland. Credit Philip Rivers with getting it together down the stretch.
4. SEATTLE: Minor hiccup vs. Dallas. Russell Wilson needs to be willing to take some chances downfield.
5. BALTIMORE: Joe Flacco’s five first-half TD passes is just what the doctor ordered.

All right. You can make the argument that any team that has Peyton Manning as their QB is the best team in the NFL (even when you can’t be bothered to write full sentences for every team). And though the Colts are great, the Eagles beat them. The 5-1 Chargers land at number three, while Seattle (who some have at #1) come in one spot in front of … Baltimore? Okay, sure. But the two other 5-1 teams have to be next, right?

6. CINCINNATI: Mohamed Sanu is stepping up with A.J. Green on the shelf.
7. CAROLINA: Showed some great signs on offense, and the defense is still strong. This team might be hitting their stride.
8. PHILADELPHIA: Just when LeSean McCoy gets going, they lose Darren Sproles to injury.
9. ARIZONA: Carson Palmer is back under center, and that’s a good thing.
10. NEW ENGLAND: Devastating injuries to Mayo and Ridley, but with Brady at QB they always have a chance.

The Eagles finally come in at number eight behind a Darren Sproles injury no one really seems super worried about. But the Cowboys are nowhere to be found. Does the retired vet still have some Cowboy hate boiling up inside of his blood? A team is tied for the best record in football and they miss the top 10 in McNabb’s book, falling behind teams with two fewer wins and …

11. CLEVELAND: Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Brian Hoyer.
12. GREEN BAY: Gotta love Aaron Rodgers in crunch time, and he can thank his defense for giving him a shot.
13. DALLAS: Are the Cowboys back to being America’s Team?

The Cleveland Browns. I would fully support Dallas’ #13 spot on the power rankings if McNabb was a reliable source of analysis not often considered a moron, and also if not everyone who does this for a living disagreed with him.

    He works for the same company that gives us Fox News. He’s just playing the role like every other buffoon on FoxSports plays — which is essentially Fox News but for sports.

      except that the people on FauxNews are doing what they do knowingly. McMentalMidget is actually trying to give what he believes is objective and reasoned analysis here…looks like he puts about as much effort into his sportscasts as he did into studying the playbook when he was a QB.
