1st Quarter NFL Grades

NFL games aren't the only things broken into four quarters. NFL coaches also break up their seasons into four quarters. So let's grade them:
AFC East
NYJ:3-1 The Jets have done a tremendous job of coddling Mark Sanchez while giving the offensive driving seat to LT, who ranks 7th in the league in rushing. A-
NE: 3-1 The Brady bunch have had to find other ways to win because of a horrible defense. The special teams unit will have to continue their exceptional play to keep NE in the hunt. B-
MIA:2-2 The no-name crew has played very hard every game. Brandon Marshall will make sure the Dolphins are a factor in this playoff push.B-
BUF:0-4 Hope you chopped plenty of wood for the fireplace, it's going to be a long winter. F-
B-MO: 3-1 The Ravens have shown they are ready for a Superbowl run. Continued improvement from Joe Flacco is the key. A
PITT: 3-1 The Steeler's have taken an embarrassing off-season and had a great early start. Rashard Mendenhall is really coming of age. A
CINCY:2-2 Bengals have the weapons. Carson Palmer needs to step up his game. C-
CLE:1-3 Say it ' so...Lebron is really gone!!!! F-
HOUSTON-3-1 Texans have shocked of the NFL. Not because they're winning, but because of how they win.They lead the league in rushing yards per game. A
JAC- 2-2 So long Jags...The city won't support you, and your just plain BORING. C-
INDY 2-2 Say it ain't so. Indy's not 4-0. Manning will work his magic and get them back on track. D
TENN - 2-2 Leave Vince Young alone. Either let him be the QB or trade him. C-
KC- 3-0 The Chiefs have truly been the surprise of the league. The have won with defense and discipline football. B
SAN DIEGO-2-2 Rivers complete to Antonio Gates is redundant. Rivers needs another weapon. C
DENVER-2-2 Kyle Orton has thrown Denver into the race with the #1 passing attack in the NFL. C
OAKLAND-1 -3 Yes...Al Davis is still in charge. Darren McFadden has become a factor back in the NFL. D
Washington- 2-2 Shanahan's doing it again. Took over an awful team, made one trade and has his team in position for a division title. Defense needs to improve. B-
NYG- 2-2 The Giants are playing bad. They can't get both all three phases offense, defense and special teams to play together. C-
PHILLY- 2-2 They get two grades.. With Vick B+ Without Vick C-
DALLAS- 1-2 You made a decision, Romo's your guy. Quit blaming everyone else. Deal with it! D
CHICAGO 3-1 We all thought they were real until Monday night against the Giants. They're frauds. B-
GREEN BAY -3-1 The Packers are for real and are finally keeping Aaron Rodgers upright. Here comes the Superbowl run. B+
MINNESOTA - Theerree Baaaaccckkk...Randy Moss catapults them back into the Superbowl race. C
DETROIT- 0-4 Bless they heart.... C- (They are improving)
Atlanta Falcons-3-1 The Falcons have played lights out football. They have a very solid football team. B+
New Orleans- 3-1 The Saints haven't shown the same offensive dominance that led their team last season. Also the defense hasn't created enough turnovers to give the offense more opportunities to score. B-
Tampa Bay - 2-1 Tampa is rebuilding and doing a good job at it. Look for them to start to slide as their schedule begins to toughen. C-
Carolina Panthers 0-4 Head Coach John Fox may not make it through the season. D-
ARIZONA-2-2 Not the same team without Kurt Warner. C
ST. LOUIS-2-2 Sam Bradford and Stephen Jackson Rams back to respectability. C+
SEATTLE-2-2 If Pete Carroll is able to create a running game behind newly acquired Marshawn Lynch, he may be able to win this division. C+
SAN FRANCISCO-0-4 Mike Singletary needs to learn how to relate to his new school players. Old school doesn't work anymore. F
