So after taking seven weeks off, I felt like I should bring back the NFC power rankings I did in the preseason and make it a weekly thing.
It is funny how much heat I took from that article I published when I placed the Carolina Panthers at No. 14 in the NFC, all the Panthers fans ripped me and called me crazy and claimed Matt Moore was a fine starting caliber QB. I actually ranked them too high that day.
Unfortunately that goes both ways as I ranked the Cowboys as the No. 2 team in the NFC. Boy was I wrong. They are a mess at 1-4 and Jerry Jones keeps putting on his best poker face claiming he won't fire Wade Philips midseason. I'll believe that if they go 1-6 and he sticks around.
The NFC is almost impossible to figure out at the moment, as five teams are tied for first with 4-2 records, two are behind them at 3-2, and three are 3-3. For those counting, that means over half the conference is either .500 or better.
