Way to Early NFL Power Rankings

Posted on: July 2, 2009 6:56 pm
1. New England Patriots - Brady + Belicheck = Super Bowls
2. Philadelphia Eagles - A spectular off-season solidifies a team that went to the NFC Championship Game last year.
3. Pittsburgh Steelers - The Defending Super Bowl Champions.
4. Atlanta Falcons - Ryan and Turner provide a deadly combo.
5. Minnesota Vikings - Having Adrian Peterson always gives you a chance to win.
6. Arizona Cardinals - An outstanding run in the playoffs last year. Should see similar success if Boldin plays.
7. Washington Redskins - Haynesworth improves an already great defense. If Portis has another big year, this team could challenge for the divison.
8. Carolina Panthers - The best rushing attack in the NFL.
9. Baltimore Ravens - Defense should still be great even without Bart Scott. Joe Flacco now has a year under his belt.
10. Houston Texans - A plethora of young talent.
11. San Diego Chargers - LT is probably done, but Phillip Rivers has quietly become a top QB. Merriman anchors a solid defense.
12. Chicago Bears - Cutler provides a major boost, but they lack the receiving to be an elite team.
13. New York Jets - Rex Ryan and Bart Scott gives this defense Top 5 potential. They also may have found their QB in Sanchez.
14. New York Giants - One of the best defenses in the league, but major off-season losses on offense will plague Eli.
15. Indianapolis Colts - There offense isn't what it used to be.
16. Buffalo Bills - Owens creates chaos wherever he goes, but he does score points.
17. Tennessee Titans -Vince Young is still unproven. The defense will struggle without Haynesworth.
18. New Orleans Saints - Reggie Bush has to step up this year.
19. Dallas Cowboys - Unless Roy willaims has a breakout season, Dallas wills struggle to get the ball in the endzone.
20. Green Bay Packers - Good overall, but not great in any areas.
21. Cincinnati Bengals - Look for OchoCinco to have a big year.
22. Miami Dolphins - Will Defensive Coordinators figure out the Wildcat this year?
23. Oakland Raiders - A lot of speed on offense, but Russell is still a mystery at QB.
24. Seattle Seahawks - Houshmandzadeh should give Hasselback more success this year.
25. Kansas City Chiefs - Hopefully Matt Cassell is the real deal.
26. Cleveland Browns - The standard question marks that are Brady Quinn and Braylon Edwards
27. Jacksonville Jaguars - This team still has a lot of holes to fill.
28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Derrick Ward was a great pick-up. How much will they get out of Josh Freeman?
29. Denver Broncos - Josh McDaniels, your team is falling quickly falling into the abyss.
30. Detriot Lions - A solid draft should lead to some wins.
31. San Francisco 49ers - A potential star in Crabtree is the only positive for this team.
32. St.Louis Rams - No more then 3 wins for this team next year.

AFC West.....

My biggest remark would be in regard to the AFC West representation. You have the Chargers at 11 and no other AFC West team above 23. If the Chargers play against three teams in the cellar all season they're going to rank much higher than 11. This could also mean that this conference is an enigma this season and one of the other teams could emerge as a playoff team. Hopefully the Raiders that you have at 23.....

I agree with you in saying Trent Edwards does not look down field enough.  The first four games of last year he did and had some MVP talk.  After the concussion by Arizona, he hasn't been the same player.  He's been very efficient this preseason but no touchdowns. too many turnovers, and too timid.  Hope things go right but only see an 8-8 season for us.

Really?  You rank the 12 best teams.  If there are more teams worthy of a higher ranking in one league then so be it.  Is this the first time you have ever seen power rankings?  For any sport? Anywhere?

Get with it bud.

I feel sorry for you - Romo gets your hopes up and then comes playoff time and he CHOKES...........
He's the biggest choker in the NFC followed by McNabb - Romo has yet to prove he can win the big game.

Sorry, but no playoffs again this year//////

Ugh...need an edit button...I'm agreeing to the comment that the Colts should be higher ranked than 15th. C'mon.
