The Daly Dose Bottom 5 NFL teams!

We are now three weeks into the 2016 NFL season, and every week it seems that we know a little bit more about each team.

Sure, everyone does a power rankings, but here at the Daly Dose we like to dwell on the positive!

And we are positive that these five teams are truly dreadful.

Bottom 5

5. San Francisco 49ers

Oh sure, they play hard…. it’s just that they don’t play well. Never forget that Niners management looked at Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick and thought to themselves “Well, we are set at quarterback.”

4. Jacksonville Jaguars

A number of experts were picking the Jaguars to be a surprise playoff team this season. Surprise! They are 0-3 and still suck!

3. New Orleans Saints

The Saints are still without a win despite scoring 26 points per game. After watching opponents run up and down the field on their defense I guess we know why New Orleans is called the Big Easy.  

2. Cleveland Browns

The Browns somehow found themselves in a tie game with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday with just 20 seconds remaining. Despite the prospect of a field goal of over 45 yards, Cleveland elected to kneel on the ball and kick the long field goal rather than trying to gain any yards. Of course they missed the long kick and lost in overtime? Why? Because they’re the Browns. And that’s how the universe works.

1. Chicago Bears

Head coach John Fox has won with Jake Delhomme. He has won with Peyton Manning. He has even won with Tim Tebow. But not even John Fox can win consistently with Jay Cutler.

Broncos’ Marshall clarifies: “Kneeling was in support of average quarterbacks.”

After losing endorsements with the Air Academy Federal Credit Union and CenturyLink  for taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem, Denver Broncos linebacker decided to clarify his protest.

Marshall made it clear that his protest was not against the military or the police in any way.

“My kneeling was not anything political.” Marshall stated Monday. “I was simply showing my support for average or below average quarterbacks like Colin Kaepernick who make my life as a defensive player so much easier.”

Many games around the NFL were marked by peaceful demonstrations as players tried to draw attention to racial disparities in the country’s justice system.

Kaepernick,  the San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback began the protests when he refused to stand for The Stars Spangled Banner during preseason games.

Marshall hoped his statement might change the minds of the executives who dropped his sponsorships when he knelt during the anthem prior to the Broncos game against the Carolina Panthers, on Thursday night.

“Look I’m against social injustice as much as anyone.” Marshall continued. “But I did like getting those checks. And I’d rather play a quarterback like Kaepernick than a Tom Brady or an Aaron Rodgers.”

Daly Doses: Thoughts, reflections, and derision from the Mile High City!

Doses

  • There is s_mething missing with the Denver Br_nc_s. I can’t quite my finger _n it but they l__k a little _ff.
  • Which quarterback has more interceptions this season?
  • A. Peyton Manning? Or B. Sam Bradford?
  • A. Peyton Manning? Or B. Colin Kaepernick?
  • A. Peyton Manning? Or B. Branden Weeden?
  • A. Peyton Manning? Or B. Jay Cutler?
  • I hope you picked A.
  • Every time.
  • After Week 5 Manning has now thrown seven picks. More than each Bradford and Kaepernick (5). And more than Cutler (3) and Weeden (2) combined.
  • I know that Manning’s physical skills have diminished, but what is more disturbing to me is the fact that the interceptions aren’t always a physical mistake.
  • We are also seeing poor decisions and bad reads.
  • A number of these interceptions are mental mistakes.
  • Which is odd for a guy who wears a size 11 5/8 hat.
  • Is this simply a product of a new Gary Kubiak system? Or are we watching a future Hall-of-Famer completely collapse before our eyes?
  • I know the offensive line is a mess. And that definitely hasn’t helped.
  • The Broncos completely rebuilt their offensive front- starting four new players including two players with no true NFL experience.
  • In fact, they traded away experienced offensive tackle Chris Clark to Houston during the preseason.
  • And now they have some injuries too.
  • I give John Elway a ton of credit for rebuilding this team to be a tougher, more physical team, that should be more dangerous in January.
  • But this OL mess is also his fault.
  • Orlando Franklin is now in San Diego. Philip Blake was a complete bust. Vinston Painter can’t make a team.
  • Those were Elway’s draft picks.
  • Yet for all of the flaws of Peyton Manning and the offense, this team is still finding a way to win every week. And both he and the offensive line should improve.
  • And by the way, the aforementioned quarterbacks have just seven wins combined between all four of them.
  • Manning has five wins on his own.
  • I know there are those screaming for the Broncos to bench Manning.
  • But it isn’t time to throw Brock Osweiler to the wolves just yet.
  • Can you imagine how deflating that would be to this defense to completely rebuild the offense right now? Manning is a leader and a veteran. They do trust him.
  • And the word “deflating” is a negative term here.
  • This isn’t New England.

The Daly Dose Sports NFL Bottom 5 Power Rankings!

Bottom 5

This week the Daly Dose takes a look at the five worst teams in the NFL!

Team/Record Last game/Next game Outlook
1. Chicago Bears 0-3

Last week: 1

Last game: Lost @Seattle 26-0

Next game: Sun. vs. Oakland

The Bears managed just 146 yards on Sunday against the Seahawks and have now been outscored 105-46. With Jay Cutler injured backup QB Jimmy Clausen didn’t throw a single interception against Seattle. Of course he only threw for 63 more yards than I did.
2. New Orleans Saints 0-3

Last week: 2

Last game: Lost @Carolina 27-22

Next game: Sun. vs. Dallas

Drew Brees was out with an injured shoulder in Week 3 against the Panthers but Luke McCown threw for over 300 yards and the Saints still lost. Brees might be back this week but unless he plays linebacker or offensive line it won’t really matter on Sunday against the Cowboys.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1-2

Last week: 3

Last game: Lost @Houston 19-9

Next Game: Sun. vs. Carolina

Jameis Winston started off his NFL career with a bang when he threw a pick six on his very first throw. At least it was a completion. Winston has completed a league worst 52 percent of his passes so far. Unfortunately I think that is also the same percentage of plays that the Bucs defense allows a touchdown.
4. San Francisco 49ers 1-2

Last week: 4

Last game: Lost @Arizona 47-7

Next game: Sun. vs. Green Bay

After an encouraging first game against the Minnesota Vikings it seems that QB Colin Kaepernick has forgotten how to play football again. In three games he has thrown as many touchdowns to opposing teams as he has to his own.
5. Miami Dolphins 1-2

Last week: 5

Last game: Lost vs. Buffalo 42-14

Next game: Sun. vs. NY Jets in London

You might think this spot would go to a team like Jacksonville. Except that the Jaguars have already beaten the Dolphins. The Miami defense is allowing 145 yard rushing per game with new acquisition Ndamukong Suh. You might say the Fins defense is really “Suh-cking”.
