What Team Has Impressed You The Most So Far?

I have to give it to the Atlanta Falcons they are playing hard for a playoff spot, looking great with the rookie QB at 8-4!!!!

Atlanta was my 1st choice so I'll go with my second choice, Miami. They were a joke last year and have 7 wins (the same as the Skins) this year. Also they may have created a new offensive trend with the Wildcat.

Re: What Team Has Impressed You The Most So Far?

1) giants to me only b/c i really doubted they could build off their run from last year and i thought their secondary would be tested and exposed leaving them like the broncos; great offense but an achillies heel on defense. I was wrong, spagnola found ways to use his strengths on D to cover up for their weaknesses. I also thought with usi and strahan done they wouldnt even have a commanding advantage on the D line. i was wrong again.

2) atlanta - have not watched a single game this year but their record and consistent offensive output is there week after week. good for them with the whole vick and paterno coaching thing.

3) redskins - coach blache and the D has played better than expected. while i dont really dig our style/approach and they have not really shut teams down they get the job done week after week. if only we could kick this new trend of allowing teams to pick up 3rd downs.

Re: What Team Has Impressed You The Most So Far?

The Giants have not impressed me. One of two things was going to happen...either play strong agian this year which they are doing or completely bomb.

I would have to say for me it's Atlanta. New coach's, new system, and new QB and they are 8-4. They score more then 7 points a game and sometimes more then 20. I can't for the life of me figure out why with all the "talent" we supposedly have on this team why we are not scoring TD's like them? We are basically in the same boat as them except for the QB situation and they are better then us. I'm at a loss.

Giants by far. The Falcons and the Dolphins weren't expected to do much but they're winning. Not really sold on the Titans. Good team but I don't think they can beat the Giants.

Giants, I thought the Giants would have a good team this year but I did not expect them to go 11-1. Little Eli has really grown up and just over a year a go people wondered if he could make it in the NFL.

Re: What Team Has Impressed You The Most So Far?

In my opinion it's the Falcon's in a slam dunk. I mean it's not even close.

Everyone knew the Giants were a great team before the season started. So sure they are very impressive, but they're also defending champs. They'll likely be playing the NFC Championship game in the Meadowlands this year, but this thread asked which team impresses me the most, not what team is the league's best.

Atlanta has a new coach, a rookie QB, and was picked by most people to be the worst team in the league this year. They were coming off one of the worst off-field disasters in NFL history with the Vick thing. All they've done is go 8-4 in the league's best division right now. They are a legit team on both sides of the ball, and Matt Ryan looks like he'll be one of the best QBs in the game for the next 10+ years.

They are exceeding expectation by leaps and bounds. If you would have told me in the preseason that heading into week 14 the Falcons would be 8-4, I would have told you to go jump off a bridge.

And watching the way their D gets after the QB makes me so jealous. Sigh...

Re: What Team Has Impressed You The Most So Far?

Is the criterion what team is all around the most impressive or what team has most exceeded your expecations? For the former, wow, I don't think I have been as consistently wrong about a team over a two year period in any sport as I have been about the Giants. I didn't think they'd make the playoffs last year, I didn't think they would beat Tampa, Dallas, or Green Bay, and I thought they'd lose by 40 to the Patriots, I thought they would take a major step backwards this season, and I thought they'd lose last weekend. I am finally coming to terms with the fact that they are one of the great teams.

As to the latter, Atlanta is great but if you had told me in August that Vince would be essentially deactivated and Tennessee would be 11-1 I would have thought that was pretty crazy. Also, how about Miami? They are proving what you can achieve when you don't beat yourself (the Chargers would be the inverse of that).

All in all it's been great this year to see some of the old powers fade. This is the first truly wide open season in a long time. Lovin' it.
