Post-Draft NFL Power Rankings

With the draft in the books and free agency activity slowing, it’s finally time for the first edition of 2012 power rankings. In the parenthesis are my projected records for each time. 1.

NFL Bad Schotz Players-Week 10

Mike Vick- I’m considering renaming this to Mike Vick’s players of the week because he is on here every week. In past weeks, the Eagles’ losses were not completely Vick’s fault. However, its tough to defend him after watching his week 10 matchup with the lowly Cardinals. Vick was 16-34 passing with only 128 passing yards with no TD’s, 1 INT, and 1 fumble.
