For whatever reason, particularly on offense, this team just doesn’t look right. That said, they have too much talent to not pick things up eventually. And, really, they should be 3-1 on the year.
It’s almost as if letting LeSean McCoy -- arguably the best running back in the game -- take some pressure off Michael Vick is a good thing. The Giants win was huge – as big a statement game as we’ve seen thus far. The next three weeks will tell us a lot about this group.
This team is winning old school Baltimore-Ravens-2000-style. NFL teams in the past have proven that you can get by with a great defense and mediocre offense/offensive line. Can this team do it? Time will tell.
They’re winning games, but the defense is becoming a point of concern. They’re giving up a lot of passing yardage to guys that they should not be giving it up to. (Hi, Brandon Weeden.)
One minor hiccup versus the Vikings notwithstanding, there is a legitimate case to be made for this being the best overall team in the NFL. The Niners have better wins on their record than anyone on these rankings – including the No. 1 team.
The rushing attack is picking up steam and the secondary is continuing to handle business despite injuries. Atlanta has a very reasonable schedule the rest of the way – it wouldn’t be at all shocking to see these guys finish the year with only three losses.
The NFL’s most complete team at the moment. No noticeable weaknesses whatsoever, but no wins over legitimate squads either. Games against the Packers and Ravens after what promises to be a win over the Jets will tell us a lot about them.
