NFL Power Rankings Week 14: Freefall continues

A little late this week, but the Bucs' collapse in the power rankings continues. Now there are only two teams universally ranked below the Bucs: the St. Louis Rams and the Indianapolis Colts. By consensus, they're worse than the Jaguars, the Redskins, the Browns and the Chiefs among others.

The Bucs are now ranked 28th on average, while they were ranked 26th last week. This is getting more and more painful.

SB Nation - 25th (down from 23rd)

My how times change. Just a few months ago Raheem Morris was the fiery head coach of an up-and-coming team and now...he might be gone at the end of the season.

ESPN - 28th (down from 26th)

The Bucs have gone from 7-3 last season to 2-7 this season outside their division.

Fox Sports (Brian Billick) - 29th (down from 27th)

Of course, you lose 41-14 when you have seven turnovers. With three interceptions and four lost fumbles, they are lucky they didn't lose by worse than that! Expert Rankings - 28th (down from 26th) (Elliot Harrison) - 29th (down from 27th)

It's the "which-coach-is-gonna-get-fired" time of year. Never been a fan; speculating on other people's job security doesn't seem like much fun. That said, the name Raheem Morris keeps coming up. Coming into the 2011 season, the Bucs and Panthers had the youngest rosters in the league. While Morris' style has come under fire, including from this here website, there's something to be said for the lockout affecting a club with such youth. As much as they bore fans, there is tremendous value to mini-camps and OTAs.

CBS Sports - 27th (down from 25th)

Can Raheem Morris save his job? It's not looking that way now. They are getting blown out.

National Football Post - 30th (down from 28th)

Make that seven straight losses for the Bucs after the 41-17 beat down from the Jags.

Pro Football Talk - 29th (down from 26th)

Giving up 41 points to the Jaguars is like giving up 100 to a normal team.

Pro Football Weekly - 29th (down from 28th)

Giving up 41 to Jags is quite the low point for reeling Bucs.
