So many teams have the right coaches and players in place to be great, but only a few have put it all together to fit the bill this season. There are teams that have suffered injuries and others that, for one reason or another, just haven't reached their potential.
Through Week 9, which is the most frustrating team in the NFL?
Atlanta has lost
three of its past four games. We see the offensive power the
Falcons possess with
Julio Jones and
Matt Ryan, but the quarterback has struggled the last few weeks. Now is the time when teams are really dissecting strengths and weaknesses, and Dan Quinn's bunch has to figure out a way to win again.
I'm a huge Rex Ryan fan, but sometimes his loosey-goosey ways are reflected by the way his team plays on the field. Until the
Bills clean up those little things, they'll never be able to be a legitimate contender in the AFC.
If a few things changed, they'd be a great team. If they slowed the tempo and ran more of a power/aggressive ground game with Ryan Mathews and DeMarco Murray, their quarterback play and offense could be ridiculous. I really think the defense would benefit from this, too, because right now, they're on the field too long.
Eagles are one of the more talented teams, and yet they aren't playing like they're capable of playing.
Then you have a whole cast of other capable guys. Detroit has the players and just can't put it together.
The Chargers have the players to come out of it, so hopefully they can pull it together.
