    The overrated teams thread

    There are plenty of threads for individual teams, so I thought it'd be a good idea to discuss each week's most overrated team.

    My nominee for this week:

    The Denver Broncos, who are getting spanked by the Rams.

    This week... that's all.

    How do you go from the AFC C'ship to losing to the Rams?

    An 8 point loss on the road isn't getting spanked...Tampa on the other hand...

    Thank G-d it's just one game!

    Plummer had about the worst game in NFL history today, that's how they lost! I'd laugh, except he's my fantasy QB...

    Thank you. Just last week, Nick Saban was referring to their loss to the Steelers as a "hiccup".

    I wonder what word he'll use to describe Sunday's beating by the Bills.

    Sorry, but as a Bronco fan, I've got to say that we are the poster children for this thread. I understand that KC's defense may be improved, but no touchdowns at home against anyone is a disaster.

    I can't imagine any team more overrated at this point.

    I had Denver going all the way. At least their D is playing well (8 ppg). Plummer might be losing his confidence. I think the drafting of Cutler really shook him. Jake needs to shrug it off and play mistake free football. Another problem is the Denver running game. Tatum only had 69 rushing yards against KC. Mike Bell is injured. Mike Anderson is in Baltimore. The Broncos lost a good deep threat in Lelie. Walker is playing well but Rod Smith is in his mid 30s. Smith got his bell rung and might be at least questionable for the Pats game. Who's the # 3 WR?

    As long as their D plays well and they can get more out of their running game the Broncos should be back in the playoffs.

    Right now, the likely AFC divison winners, imo, are: NE, Cincy, Indy, SD
    WC probables: Pittsburgh, Denver, Jags, Baltimore.

    Figures, Colts play the Jags following a MNF against Pittsburgh.

    I think you can add the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to this thread. 3 points in two games?

    I still think the Carolina Panthers will bounce back, but I am shocked at how bad the Miami Dolphins' offense has been. Wow.

    Re: The overrated teams thread

    Is it really surprising that the Dolphins are off to a bad start? Most of their hype was that they had a winning streak at the end of last year, capped off by beating a team that played their 3rd string QB, had their backup QB kick a PAT and might have wanted to lose for playoff seeding.

    I second that entire post. Plummer has been rotten, just g-dawful.

    The Pats maybe - not the Steelers yet. I'm gonna give them one more week (after the bye week).

    Re: The overrated teams thread

    Right now, after 3 weeks, I nominate my New York Giants. Hopefully I'll be able to recant after the bye week, but after 3 games how are they not overrated? Quality teams just do not get chewed up like this.

    Sadly, my Giants belong here.
    I have no association with "TEPLimey" at nomaas. Apparently a very disturbed individual likes to get their rocks off on pretending they are me. Sad, really.

    I think it might be a bit too early to put the Giants here.

    Indy
    @Philly
    @Seattle

    What did everyone expect their record to be after 3 games?

    I realize it's more about the piss-poor performance but I think our record is what most people could hope for after that 3 game schedule.

    Those 3 teams are a combined 8-1 too.

    I also feel we played well enough to beat the Colts and pending some (bad) calls from the officials, we might have.

    Too early for that about them given the quality of the opposition and too early given that it's only been 3 games.

    As to my Pats, I dunno, I have trouble coming to that conclusion when they're 2-1 and assimilating a lot of new personnel.

    Frankly, this whole thread is too early.
