Each week, Coltzilla will scour the net for team rankings from football experts covering the previous week, and discuss them from the fan’s perspective.
Average Ranking: 31.13 (previously 31.38)
CBS Sports – Pete Prisco – 32nd (no change): They haven’t quit, but it’s looking more and more like they might have the first pick next April.
ESPN – Kuharsky – 32nd (no change): A team that has long found ways to pull games out late is now regularly finding ways to lose. (Kuharsky)
Fox Sports – 31nd (+1): Another hard-fought game, and they actually may have found something in RB Delone Carter, who filled in nicely for an injured Joseph Addai. QB Curtis Painter will win this team a couple games before it’s all over.
WEEI in Boston – 32nd (no change): Before the season started, the Week 7 rematch of Super Bowl XLIV was a game many marked on their calendar.

Pro Football Talk – 30th (no change): “Suck for Luck” should be the title of the team’s official 2011 season DVD.
Sports Illustrated – Don Banks – 32nd (no change): I’d cough up way more than a penny for Peyton Manning’s thoughts while he watches (endures?) his Colts teammates as they play out this disaster of a season. It must be like a bad dream that refuses to end in Indy. And it’s got 10 more games to go.

Yahoo Sports – 30th (+1): The matchup vs. the Saints this Sunday night looked like a great primetime feature back when the schedules were released.
