1. Seattle Seahawks (3-0):

It wasn’t going to change after their dominant win over the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars, and the way things are going, who knows when that top spot will be wrenched away from them. They beat the poor Jags 45-17, and were resting their stars by only the third quarter. Russell Wilson threw for fours touchdowns, and to make things even worse, Tarvaris Jackson came in, threw for a touchdown and also ran for a touchdown! It wasn’t much of a test for the Seahawks, but they did show their dominance, and  also showed that they aren’t going to play down to a team with the talent of the Jaguars. These guys have the best defense in the NFL right now, and things are really starting to come together for their offense, which is a scary thought as the season progresses. The way things are going, I don’t any team is really all that close to them at the moment, even this next team…

    Maybe you made a typo, but Jimmy Graham had 9 receptions and two TD’s not Colston…and you are incorrect about throwing in the cold…I don’t know where this house wives’ fallacy comes from…but you are correct about running being a necessity in the playoffs but more so to control clock to rest that very good defense…(imagine that, a coach named Ryan coaching a defense)…Until we get through the New England, Chicago, Miami gauntlet with 2 or more wins, I will reserve my demand for a #1 ranking…and as far as teams that defend the pass better…Tampa and Arizona were ranked high against the pass until they played an elite QB… like Drew who posted 300+ on both of them…not many defenses that are ranked high against the pass have played elite PASSING qb’s like Brees, Rogers, P. Manning…so I counter that with perhaps those top Passing Defenses have to prove themselves against our offense which has proven over the last 6 years and counting that there is an 80% chance of them getting 3 TD’s in the air and a 90% chance of throwing for 300+ yards no matter who you are…hands down the best receiving corp (in terms of talent and depth and counting Sproles, Thomas, and both TE’s) and the one of three of the most elite QB’s playing…Chicago vs. Nola will determine home field advantage this year for NFC, Seattle and Chicago are great, but I don’t see them coming out of their divisions as clean as new orleans right now…unless Carolina has something to say about that (doubt it)…

      Yeah, for some reason I read Colston as having two TDs. My mistake, it’s fixed now.
