We are half way through the NFL season and it is time to look at some of the surprises that no one expected. Now most people thought the Green Bay Packers were going to be good, but not this crazy good. They are without the doubt the cream of the crop. Some of the other surprise teams are Cincinnati who sport an impressive 6-2 record and tied for first place. The Houston Texans look like they may finally get to the playoffs finally as this team looks very good.
Out of all the teams that have shocked me would be the San Francisco 49ers who are 7-1 and easily running away with the NFC West. Jim Harbaugh is getting the job done with the same players that no one else could. Give Harbaugh a lot of credit for getting the 49ers back so quickly and a title contender in his first NFL season as a head coach. That's some impressive stuff to say the least.
The AFC West or should I say the AFC Least as this is a division anyone could win as no team seems to want to take control of this division. San Diego is probably the biggest surprise for me. They have talent and they never seem to get it going until it is too late. Norv Turner better watch out as he could be looking for a job soon if the Chargers continue to slide backwards.
