NFL Power Poll with a BCS Twist: 4th Installment

As Week 11 of the NFL season gets under way tonight with a matchup pitting the surging wishbone offense of the Tim Tebow’s, versus, the wish they had an offense of the New York Jets, here is the fourth installment of the BCS style NFL power Poll.

What we learned last week is, quarterbacks are still very fragile, or in the spirit of the upcoming season, and in honor of the great holiday movie a Christmas Story, Fra-jeel-lee. Its Italian remember.

Last week the 49ers continued to roll by beating an old rival in a new classic. The Baltimore Ravens lost to a bad team after beating a good once again, and the Green Bay packers, are the most explosive team since the 2007 New England Patriots.

The following quarterbacks were all injured, some including the Texans Matt Schaub will be out for the season.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger confirmed Tuesday he broke the thumb on his throwing hand in Sunday’s win over the Bengals. Meanwhile the other key stone state superstar signal caller, Michael Vick suffered two broken ribs in a loss to the Cardinals

In Detroit, the Lions have dropped three in a row after starting 6-0. Matthew Stafford, playing with a fractured finger in his right hand, was picked off four times Sunday in a loss to the Bears, with two of the interceptions run back for touchdowns.

Matt Cassel injured his throwing hand in Sunday’s loss to Denver and the Chiefs QB may also be done for the year. So like I said, Fra-jeel-lee.

Another big story line continues to be the decision by Mike Smith to go for fourth and inches in overtime on his side of the field.  

The Playoff race is far from shaping up, but as we approach Turkey day, things will start to get more intense. Isn’t it nice that Thanksgiving will be a good day for football?

Five of the six teams slated to play that day, are in this poll, and to know why that is, just click through to the next slide if you do not understand the points system.

Otherwise, skip it, and enjoy the show. As always, please feel free to leave your comments, but please leave them within the boundaries of good taste.
