Week 13 Ratings Change Suggestions

Posted December 8th, 2009 at 6:35 am


The first update in the last three weeks and only the third update in the last eight weeks is set to be out on Friday. As such there should be some pretty significant changes given the gaps in updates and the developments on the field. Thoughts from the previous weeks of ratings discussion carry through to now.

The Steelers have struggled lately losing their last four games and to poor teams at that. Most criticized seems to be the secondary where the 88 rated Ike Taylor may be benched. Another team that has had trouble is the Patriots and their defense should see downgrades as it has been picked on as of late. Bruce Gradkowski has taken over in Oakland and done a respectable job. He threw for 308 yards and three touchdowns to beat Pittsburgh. At the moment he is only rated a 62 which is three points under JaMarcus Russell. The Redskins have now at least gotten competitive and Jason Campbell has shown improvement. His 30-42-367 and three touchdowns may have been his best performance to date. Also Clinton Portis is on the way to the IR.

As always leave your thoughts in the comments on which players are deserving of a ratings boost or downgrade.
