OMFL Report Cards - Through Week 6 Just something new i thought i'd try, since we're being asked for more forum activity. Let me know what you think and i might do another one or two later in the season. NFC North: Minnesota Vikings (3-2, 1st place): Definately shaping as the team to beat in this division, having already beaten the Bears and Packers while only losing to other division leading teams. AP is having a great season, as you'd expect, with 721 yards and 6 TD's on the ground. B+ Detroit Lions (3-3, 2nd place): Despite not currently having a coach, the Lions look like the most likely challenger to the Vikings. With a fairly loaded roster and Megatron leading the way, the Lions could make a run at the division. B- Chicago Bears (2-3, 3rd place): Coming off their bye week, the Bears need a big win over the Bucs in week 7 to keep themselves on the Vikings tail. Young stars lead the way on both offense and defense, with WR Dion Grimes and DE Joe Breyley both having monster seasons so far. B- Green Bay Packers (1-4, 4th place): A tough start to the season for Green Bay, but there's still a lot of games to be played and time to make up ground. Must beat Detroit this week however. Aaron Rodgers needs to start throwing more TD's and less picks. D+ NFC East: Dallas Cowboys (4-1, tied for 1st place): Currently on a 4 game winning streak, the Cowboys will find out how good they really are this week against the unbeaten Pats. The only thing holding them back right now is the terrible passing of Tony Romo, with 6 TD's and 14 interceptions for the season. A- Philadelphia Eagles (4-1, tied for 1st place): Number 2 in the league in points allowed, the Eagles are my pick to take the East for that very reason. Their only loss coming by 3 points to the Pats last week, the Eagles could have what it takes to go all the way this season. A- Washington Redskins (2-3, 3rd place): Unfortunate to be stuck in such a tough division, having lost to the Pats and the Cowboys twice already this year. You know Jeremy will be there at the business end of the season though. B- New York Giants (1-5, 4th place): Far from the worst, just the worst in this division, sadly for the G-Men. If they could swap Mannings with the Eagles, they might have a better chance. C- NFC South: New Orleans Saints (5-1, 1st place): Highest scoring team in the NFC and 3rd highest in the OMFL, the Saints are flying. QB Jack English is a machine, with 16 Td's and only 4 interceptions. Devery Henderson is playing about 20 points better than his rating suggests, with 772 yards and 7 of those Td's. A Atlanta Falcons (3-2, 2nd place): Started off hot, but someone must have done something wrong during their week 4 bye, because they've lost both games since and travel to Philly this week. Michael Turner (8 TD's rushing) is a beast and must continue to find the endzone for Atlanta to catch the Saints. B Carolina Panthers (2-3, 3rd place): Another team coming off the bye, Carolina travel to Minnesota for a must-win game against the Vikings. The Panthers have stars on both offense and defense, and they all have to come together to get the season back on track. C+ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-4, 4th place): All of the Bucs losses have been by 12 points or less, with 3 of them being by 7 or less. They could quite realistically be 4-1 or even 5-0 now, but the past is the past and this team needs to look to the future. With young studs like Mcfadden and Royal on offense, the future could be very bright, this season and beyond. C- NFC West: Arizona Cardinals (4-2, 1st place): Rookie of the Year candidate Bjoern Mason is the main reason for the success in Arizona, with 697 yards and 8 scores already! However, 2 huge wins over the Seahawks has made the Cards look a lot better than they really are in my opinion. B San Francisco 49ers (3-2, 2nd place): Owning the number 1 scoring defense in football, having only given up 69 points (13.8 per game), the 49ers have what it takes to overtake the Cards and win the West. Nate Davis at QB is a real concern however, and getting Crabtree more involved is an absolute must. B Saint Louis Rams (3-3, 3rd place): Got lucky to defeat the Bengals in week 6 (just kidding bluebean). The Rams do need to start beating more top line teams, however, they don't face one for a little while, which means they need to capitalise while they can. The two headed running monster of Jackson and Addai is very dangerous. C+ Seattle Seahawks (0-6, 4th place): Not much to say here, other than it's been a very difficult first 6 weeks in Seattle. Hopefully bamagrad can turn this thing around soon, a bye this week might help. It couldn't hurt. D- AFC to come later.
