Gus’ Tiers: Power ranking NFL teams for next 3 years

todayFebruary 14, 2024


Welcome to the first edition of “Gus’ Tiers” at 1010XL/92.5 FM!

Each Wednesday, I’ll be using Tiermaker dot com to create a 100% correct ranking of a timely subject related to the Jacksonville Jaguars/NFL landscape.

For this week’s Tier, I ranked NFL teams by their chance to win a Super Bowl in the next three years.

Perennial contenders: Chiefs, 49ers, Ravens

Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes; John Harbaugh and Lamar Jackson; Kyle Shanahan and a solid passer on a $1 million salary. Beyond the head coach/quarterback pairings, these teams have S-tier roster talent, play calling, and playoff experience. 

Almost there: Bills, Cowboys, Jaguars, Bengals, Eagles, Chargers, Texans, Packers, Seahawks, Rams

These teams have great quarterbacks but still missed out on the first tier. For example, the Texans and Packers are young; the Bills and Cowboys have iffy coaching; and the Chargers and Rams could use more talent.

Get a QB then we’ll talk: Vikings, Lions, Dolphins, Buccaneers, Browns, Steelers

Teams that have a legitimately good coaching staff but need to upgrade at QB1 to sniff a playoff run. 

Frisky: Cardinals, Bears, Colts, Patriots, Broncos, Falcons. 

Jonathan Gannon and Kyler Murray, plus Shane Steichen and Anthony Richardson, are underrated head coach/quarterback combos. I also think the recent-ish hirings of Matt Eberflus, Jerod Mayo, Sean Payton, and Raheem Morris could turn out well. 

Stinky: Commanders, Saints, Raiders, Panthers, Jets, Giants, Titans. 

(singing voice) I smeell multi-year playooooff drooooooughts. Hard pass on these franchises in the near future.
