Yikes! I know these so called "power rankings" do not mean squat but 32? Seriously?

Posted Image
1. Green Bay Packers

Innocent until proven guilty. Overcoming 12 major contributors on IR to go on to win the Super Bowl is impressive enough. The only major defection was DE Cullen Jenkins, who didn't play half the season anyway. His absence is far exceeded by the return of Ryan Grant and Jermichael Finley. Why is everyone so sure Donald Driver is done? I'd still take him over Jordy Nelson.
Posted Image


2. New England Patriots

As if 14-2 wasn't good enough, the addition of a potentially not quite as fat and lazy Albert Haynesworth as well as a happy Chad Ochocinco and a re-upped Matt Light make this team formidable, per the norm. Stephen Neal's retirement hurt, as did Tully Banta-Cain's departure, especially considering the pass rush is not one of this team's strengths.
Posted Image
3. New York Jets

The only big-name veteran not linked to the Jets this offseason was Brett Favre. Plaxico Burress fills Braylon Edwards' role in an offense that will probably be dominated by Shonn Greene and Dustin Keller.
Posted Image
4. Philadelphia Eagles

This team might be calling itself the Heat, but let's hope the Eagles' Superman makes a better run in the fourth quarter than Miami's Superman. While Michael Vick should be solid again, don't expect another 100-plus passer rating. The key for this team will be the play of its weak links: Offensive line (as usual), and the Stewart Bradley-less LB corps.
Posted Image
5. New Orleans Saints

The Saints score more than David Duchovny, and that's not going to change with the addition of Mark Ingram and emergence of Jimmy Graham. The key is the defense, which ranked fourth overall a year ago, but got knifed in the playoffs and is without Anthony Hargrove, Remi Ayodele, and Darren Sharper.
Posted Image
6. Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh made a Steelers-esque splash in free agency, re-signing Ike Taylor and Willie Colon. Yay. That's okay, the formula to success remains unchanged: Draft and retain. I got $10 that says first-round pick Cameron Heyward fits in and contributes down the stretch. Here's hoping Aaron Smith does as well. Triceps tears and being 35 are a tough mix.
Posted Image
7. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts deserve this spot. If one team could stay above the fray of lockout disunity and disorganization, it would have to be these guys. Indy has a system, starting with where it just essentially guaranteed $90 million to Peyton Manning. Now if recently re-signed Joseph Addai produces this season, the ranking goes higher. If not, the aging defense might suffer from too much time on the field.
Posted Image
8. Atlanta Falcons

I'm not drinking the Falcons' Kool-Aid just yet, although their 13-3 finish warrants them being in the top 10. Atlanta lost guard Harvey Dahl in free agency, Michael Turner has trouble staying 100 percent, and Julio Jones has done nothing yet. If John Abraham starts playing his age (33), 13-3 and making the playoffs could be 9-7 and gone fishing.


Posted Image
9. New York Giants

The G-Men are one club that hasn't gotten any respect. The Matt Dodge punt, Eli Manning's turnovers, Brandon Jacob's contract, Osi Umenyiora's everything. Yet, Tom Couglin's bunch still won 10 games a year ago, and should handle the work stoppage better than other clubs. The revamped offensive line is a question mark ... the question mark.

Posted Image
10. Baltimore Ravens

How do you figure Baltimore? Who's going to play opposite a slowing Anquan Boldin? How much does this team miss Todd Heap? Does Joe Flacco look like Norman Bates? This team needed more than Bernard Pollard this offseason, but if it gets these questions answered, Baltimore could rocket up the rankings in short order.
Posted Image
11. Kansas City Chiefs

Todd Haley is the NFL's version of Rangers manager Ron Washington. No two head honchos in sports resemble a homeless guy better than Haley and Washington. Still, Haley has done a nice job working in conjunction with Scott Pioli to carve this team both in his image and that of the Patriots. Don't look for the Chiefs to fall flat, although ...
Posted Image
12. San Diego Chargers

…it would be easy to swap these two. This has to be make-or-break time for one Norval Turner. There's still a lot of talent on this team. Re-signing Eric Weddle was huge. But somebody has to help Philip Rivers out this season besides Patrick Crayton. As in someone better than Crayton. Here's looking at you, Ryan Mathews.
Posted Image
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

No Bucs fan can be entirely happy about Barrett Ruud's departure. I'm pretty sure they took it worse than Sabby Piscitelli's exit last year. It will be interesting to see how Raheem Morris' young team responds after the lack of structure during the lockout. Tampa was the best team not to make the playoffs. Much rides on the development of those baby defensive linemen.
Posted Image
14. Dallas Cowboys

It's tough putting Jerry's boys even this high. But truth is, Dallas went 5-3 down the stretch, and the three losses were by a total of seven points. They probably should have gone 7-1. The defections of Roy Williams, Marion Barber, Leonard Davis, and Marc Colombo might end up being addition by subtraction. Meanwhile, new acquisition Abram Elam should be an upgrade over Alan Ball at safety.
Posted Image
15. Detroit Lions

Lions fans officially can't blame Matt Millen if this team goes 6-10. It's been three years A.M., and Detroit has as much talent as anyone. Risky move giving Nick Fairley a guaranteed contract, considering his reputation. But if he's even 80 percent of Ndamukong Suh, and Matthew Stafford can start, oh, I don't know, 12 games, look out.
Posted Image
16. Chicago Bears

For all of the former underachieving Cowboys taking up roster real estate and cap space, was it really worth letting Olin Kreutz go over $500,000? Aside from the Dallas castoffs, the Bears are relying on a number of former top 10 picks with other teams to suddenly shake their bust label in Chicago.


Posted Image
17. St. Louis Rams

Sam Bradford is happy. Steven Jackson is happy. Everyone loves Josh McDaniels except for Tony Sheffler and Brandon Marshall. Speaking of receivers, is Danny Amendola going to catch 148 five-yard ins or will this offense get the ball vertically to big names, like, uh, Danario Alexander and Brandon Gibson? Maybe Mike Sims-Walker makes a difference.
Posted Image
18. Oakland Raiders

Going undefeated in the division was pretty damn impressive. It's the 2-8 against everyone else that's not. Losing Nnamdi Asomugha and Zach Miller hurt, too. Coach Hue Jackson could make up the difference. The reality is that by the end of last season, this was one of the better teams in the NFL.
Posted Image
19. Seattle Seahawks

While T-Jax might surprise all of us besides Sidney Rice, Seattle needs more than these two players to show up to improve on last year's 7-9 record. Getting Brandon Mebane back in the middle of that defense was big as was adding Zach Miller. Looming larger is how much of a factor Marshawn Lynch decides to be.
Posted Image
20. Houston Texans

Chalk landing here up to another team hurt by the lockout. Wade Phillips needs more time to get all his players used to their new assignments. First-round pick J.J. Watt could make a huge difference as a 3-4 defensive end. Either way, the back four has to get better. Will Johnathan Joseph and Danieal Manning turn the secondary around?


Posted Image
21. Jacksonville Jaguars

It took us 21 teams to get to a legit quarterback competition. Does it seem like David Garrard is the only five-year starter in the NFL who's no more famous or revered than the local JUCO QB? It will be interesting to see how 10th overall pick Blaine Gabbert fares. Yet, signing Paul Posluszny to a six-year, $42 million dollar contract makes this ranking seem generous.
Posted Image
22. Minnesota Vikings

Shockingly, Donovan McNabb still gets mentioned publicly as much as gubernatorial housekeepers. Why? His footwork stunk last season, he was wildly inconsistent, and he was benched for Rex Grossman of all people. Why not just let Christian Ponder play? There are so many good, proud veterans on this team that 22 seems harsh, but there it sits.
Posted Image
23. San Francisco 49ers

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has an advantage Jim Harbaugh does not. He knew his guys prior to the lockout. The work stoppage had to impact this group, what with a brand new staff and new offense. Michael Crabtree is hurt, Manny Lawson, Nate Clements and Aubrayo Franklin are gone. But at least Tarvaris Jackson wasn't named the starter, right?
Posted Image
24. Tennessee Titans

Which Matt Hasselbeck shows up in 2011? The guy who deep-sixed the league's fourth-ranked defense in the playoffs, or the oft-injured, inconsistent player of the last three years? Whatever the case might be, his presence should be good for eighth overall pick Jake Locker, especially with a new staff in place.
Posted Image
25. Miami Dolphins

Before Tony Sparano goes all Tony Sparano on us, and spearheads a team that features Daniel Thomas and a 1-yard cloud of dust, let's see if Chad Henne's hurt feelings give him the eye of the tiger. Defensively, Jared Odrick and Koa Misi could make a young unit formidable. Still, throw the ball downfield occasionally, please.
Posted Image
26. Arizona Cardinals

Putting fresh face Kevin Kolb to the side, who is his ace-in-the-hole? Everyone desperately wants it to be Beanie Wells. Particularly fantasy editor Michael Fabiano. Arizona must run the ball effectively. It will do Kolb some good, give Fabs something to facebook blast, and give the struggling defense a rest.
Posted Image
27. Buffalo Bills

The offensive line still stinks. That's the prime directive with this club, getting better line play. Let's hope it improves, because Ryan Fitzpatrick is more than serviceable. Signing do-it-all Brad Smith was nice, but involving C.J. Spiller in the offense is 10 times more important.
Posted Image
28. Cincinnati Bengals

Watching Andy Dalton work with Steve Mariucci during NFL Network's draft coverage was good TV. It's hard not to like the redhead. He should start. There's sure to be a last-second eBay bid on Carson Palmer, but no way Mike Brown budges on this one. Losing Johnathan Joseph hurt, hurt, hurt. Nate Clements is a rich man, but a poor man's Joseph (or Leon Hall.)
Posted Image
29. Cleveland Browns

I have no idea where to put these guys. How good is Colt McCoy? Was Peyton Hillis' big year a fluke? How much will the lockout hurt rookie coach Pat Shurmur and his staff's plan? These are all big, big questions that leave the Brownies here.
Posted Image
30. Denver Broncos

I think the Johns will get this thing turned around. But with the lockout delaying the transition to a new coaching staff, an uncertain quarterback situation and a defense transferring from a 3-4 to a 4-3, it's difficult to move the Broncos up. If Tim Tebow ends up starting (although it's Kyle Orton for now), Denver might reside around these parts for some time.
Posted Image
31. Carolina Panthers

How much can 2010's worst club improve in one season with a rookie coach (Ron Rivera) and quarterback (Cam Newton.) Mike Munchak is going through the same deal in Tennessee, but Rivera has no Matt Hasselbeck to turn to. Re-signing DeAngelo Williams was huge.
Posted Image
32. Washington Redskins

John Beck was the first player to drive up to Redskins headquarters immediately after the lockout ended, but was turned away. Some reports said that's just how the front desk staff felt about him starting.

Not that I really care, but this is just hating to hate. I can see us in the bottom 5, but there are at least 4 teams that suck worse than us. And I wish they would all update their stories. Beck will NOT be starting Sept. 11. Cincy, Carolina, Buffalo and Denver could all be worse than us. I'll thrown in Cleveland and Arizona for good measure.

It's tough putting Jerry's boys even this high. But truth is, Dallas went 5-3 down the stretch, and the three losses were by a total of seven points. They probably should have gone 7-1. The defections of Roy Williams, Marion Barber, Leonard Davis, and Marc Colombo might end up being addition by subtraction. Meanwhile, new acquisition Abram Elam should be an upgrade over Alan Ball at safety.


This is a perfect example of what I'm talking about in the media thread.

Both Dallas and Washington finish 6-10 last year.
The Skins take Dallas down to the wire in the 2nd game of last season, and lose by field goal.
The off-season arrives. Dallas just cuts players, and basically adds nobody to improve their team.
Dallas has a head coach who has never even head coached a full season before, and a brand new defensive coordinator in Rob Ryan.
The rankings point out that they lost x amount of games by x small margin....yet they are STILL good enough to improve to #14.

on the other hand.

Washington cuts old-regime players, and does nothing but add talented players on both sides of the ball that fit the defensive and offensive schemes being implemented.
They are head coached by a man with THREE Super Bowl rings.
This is their 2nd year in the system on both sides of the ball.
They also lost several games by very little in 2010, actually they did better than Dallas in this regard. (This is conveniently forgotten)
They trade away Haynesworth and McNabb who nobody thought they would be able to do anything but cut outright.

and they are ranked 32, and the best that can be said about the team is this

John Beck was the first player to drive up to Redskins headquarters immediately after the lockout ended, but was turned away. Some reports said that's just how the front desk staff felt about him starting.


I mean seriously, what else is there to be said? The evidence speaks for itself.

lol exactly, some of our homers really love sipping our kool-aid. I'm ready for the rough year. All I want to see is the 3-4 get better and the younger guys learn something important about the NFL game each week. By the end of the year we should be clicking on all cylinders. Usher in that new QB, draft him another linemen and a shiny new WR and lets begin taking this decade by storm.

HAIL! 2-14

They are head coached by a man with THREE Super Bowl rings.
This is their 2nd year in the system on both sides of the ball.
They also lost several games by very little in 2010, actually they did better than Dallas in this regard. (This is conveniently forgotten)
They trade away Haynesworth and McNabb who nobody thought they would be able to do anything but cut outright.

and they are ranked 32, and the best that can be said about the team is this



I mean seriously, what else is there to be said? The evidence speaks for itself.


Perfectly put. Its ridiculous. I think its great though. I am tellin ya, we are all gonna be shocked with this team this year. I feel so disrespected and I am just a fan. I can only imagine what RAK and company are thinking right now.

This is a perfect example of what I'm talking about in the media thread.

Both Dallas and Washington finish 6-10 last year.
The Skins take Dallas down to the wire in the 2nd game of last season, and lose by field goal.
The off-season arrives. Dallas just cuts players, and basically adds nobody to improve their team.
Dallas has a head coach who has never even head coached a full season before, and a brand new defensive coordinator in Rob Ryan.
The rankings point out that they lost x amount of games by x small margin....yet they are STILL good enough to improve to #14.

on the other hand.

Washington cuts old-regime players, and does nothing but add talented players on both sides of the ball that fit the defensive and offensive schemes being implemented.

Simple and we must admit this. They have a better QB than us.

The media and many other football people will always feel team A is better than team B if the QB is better.

Edit....Please keep in mind I think we can have roughly the same record as Dallas. But I do understand why others feel they are better than us.

is the media even aware that its a QB competition? one that will most certainly be won by sexy rexy?


Yes! and that's part of the problem why we're ranked dead last. (Lol)

Not only does Dallass have a better QB they are better at all their skill positions and their 3-4 is nastier than ours. Just because we had one full draft (good/bad yet to be determined) does not automatically equate us to being a good team this year. We struggled all year last year. Even in the games we won.

Hail!

C'mon man, seriously? So the difference between 14 and 32 is Tony romoSUCKS over Rex Grossman?

and another point to be made, is the national media has largely ignored the fact that we have a QB competition going on right now. They keep harping on Beck being the starter (and poking fun at it) based off Shanahan's lock-out comments, and completely ignore the fact that since training camp began Shanahan has CLEARLY stated there is going an open competition Grossman and Beck for the starting job, and that right now Grossman is listed as the team's starter.

Looking at our first 11 games I can see us going anywhere from 3-8 to 8-3. Time will only tell
