Week 3 is already here. Which means, while a few teams are bumpin', others are trying to climb out of a hole.
Starting 0-2, however, immediately drops playoff prospects to bleak. Since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, just 10 percent of teams still seeking that first win in Week 3 managed to make it to the postseason. Taking a general accounting of the downtrodden -- Chargers, Giants, Saints, Bears, Browns, 49ers, Bengals, Colts and Jets -- I am not sure which is most capable of playing catchup, at least in the standings.
Agreed. Georgia Tech will probably win that division.
My favorite part of that movie was the fourth-quarter drop -- and when the old guy points to the same Tommy Bahama shirt Russell Brand is wearing.
When it comes to the accounting of all 32 squads, as you know, these are not the Power Standings. Rather, this is a league hierarchy based on how powerful each team is at this very moment. (Still vague? Yeah, that's how I like it! But you get the point.) You might be surprised at how low one of the 2-0 outfits sits. Your thoughts? Send them along: @HarrisonNFL is the place.
Let the dissension commence!

**A)** Amazing what a mobile quarterback playing on feel can do for a middling offensive line. Deshaun Watson's scamper on third-and-long late in the fourth turned a possible punt or a looong field try into a makeable 42-yard attempt, which forced the Bengals to respond with a touchdown drive. They didn't.
