Another quick recap

New, comments

It would be typical that the day after the Colts suffer a 20 point defeat I have all kinds of crazy crap hit the fan, exasperating the annoyance of the loss to epic proportions. Full recap will be later today, but before I do that recap, I'd like to re-iterate something that was evident from Day One of the 2008 season:

There are no dominant teams this year.

Every team has been inconsistent. Some have been lucky and won anyway, but everyone is struggling through inconsistency. Want to know how nuts 2008 is? The Bears have the 3rd best scoring  offense in football. The friggin Bears. Oh, and with that great offense, defense, and special teams... they are 4-3. Green Bay, despite losing three in a row, is now tops in their division. The Cowboys got blown out by the Rams. The Chargers got beaten down by the Bills.

So, before you freak out and start demanding your pound of flesh from Tony Dungy and Bill Polian, take a step back and look at the big picture. The entire league is upside down. Everyone looks bad. Everyone is playing inconsistent. Power rankings and the like right now are totally and completely meaningless. Heck, we don't even have a real front runner for MVP.

This is one of the craziest seasons I can remember, and the only thing that I can say with any certainty is that the teams people think are good now will not be good later. And a team struggling now will likely be a team that represents their conference in a Super Bowl. It is just how things are shaking out in 2008.
