Week 6 NFL Power Rankings: Groin Grabbingly Good!

This is not about Aaron Rodgers versus Joe Flacco. This is about the Packers versus the Ravens.

The Packers have

  • The best quarterback in the NFL.
  • One great receiver, a couple of pretty good receivers, and a great tight end.
  • A mediocre running back.
  • Serviceable defense.
The Ravens have
  • A mediocre quarterback.
  • A couple of pretty good receivers, a serviceable tight end.
  • A great running back.
  • A great defense.
The Packers are Aaron Rodgers. If he gets hurt it’s over for them. They can’t run (98.5 yards per game, 24th) and defensively they allow 383.7 yards per game (23rd). Do you know who Green Bay’s backup quarterback is? Of course you don’t. It’s Matt Flynn. One career start.
Tyrod Taylor is listed as the Ravens’ number two man. Nobody knows who this dude is either, but it doesn’t matter. If Flacco gets hurt, Taylor can spend entire games handing off to Ray Rice and watching his defense terrorize opponents. There isn’t much he would be expected to do.
Flynn, on the other hand, would be commissioned with trying to get the ball to Jermichael Finley and Greg Jennings while having essentially no running game and a defense that is mediocre at best.

We are all in love with Aaron Rodgers, and rightfully so. He is lighting the world on fire via passing a football. He is eclipsing Brett Favre’s memory in Green Bay. He photobombs team pictures. He leads the defending Super Bowl Champions, and they are undefeated.

Without him I think it’s safe to say that the Packers would be in an awful lot of trouble. The Ravens are simply more complete.
