The race to bottom: a look at the contenders for the #1 pick

Recommended Posts

As of week 2, we're starting to get some clarity on how the bottom of the league will shape up.

Everyone here knows how sh*t the Jets are, but are they sh*tty enough to pick 1.01? This is the question we'll try to answer by examining the contenders:

 

4. The denver broncos. QB: Jeff driskel.

Lost key starters von miller, sutton, drew lock, AJ bouye. Decent offensive weapons, with a run game led by experienced RB Gordon complimenting quality rookie receivers. Probably not in contention, but another big injury or two could bring them close. Elway is slimy enough to tank for a top QB. 

 

3. The detroit lions. QB: matt stafford.

Probably the worst coached team in the league. Offense is respectable, but underachieving, as stafford ignores the pain from those broken bones in his lower back. Defense is crap. A coaching change probably takes them out of contention, getting them an extra win or two. But they're likely to be in the mix until the very end. 

 

2. The carolina panthers. QB: teddy bridgewater.

A very young roster, with little no veteran experience is facing a brutal schedule without any adequate preparation. Defense is abysmal, arguably the worst in the league. Bridgewater is a back-up QB, not a long-term starter, so tanking might well be on the agenda. 

 

1. The New York giants. QB: Danny 'dimes' jones. 

These guys could easily finish last. Blowhard coach with no experience is failing to manage a crappy roster, and facing a brutal schedule (NFC west, AFC north). Danny dimes folds like a cheap suit under pressure, his future is far from secure.

The Franchise formerly known as the Redskins will be in contention too. They have a good defensive front and nothing else. The Bengals too are a pretty bizarre omission given they're coming off the first pick and are 0-2. Like with the Giants their issues are more obviously around the QB.

 

I completely forgot about those guys. They're definitely in the race.

Its week 3, we have no clarity yet. 

Sure we do. All those season-ending injuries make the picture a lot clearer.

We aren’t in the 4 worse teams in the league? Homer Simpson write this?

It's not a ranking of the worst teams, its a discussion of the contenders for #1. The Jets being a contender is something we're taking for granted.
