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.

Happens in baseball every year with an Al East team that doesn't  make it v.s some .500 squad in the NL Central... Not this year bub that would be the Al central but good fair argument.

Way to Early NFL Power Rankings be honest with you, buddy, to put the Patriots at the top and then an obvioulsy biased choice at second really makes it look like you get all of your footbal information from last-year's almanac.

As a Packer fan, I have to say this.  You put the Texans in front of them?  WHAT!  Texans suck.  Even if they have a pluther of young talent, no veterans.  They don't have anyone solid.  I wouldn't believe in any of this.  Figure it out man.

Hey Dolphin could you explain to me how the Pats where better then the Chargers last season(no not a Pats or a Chargers fan)when they beat the Pats 30-10..and as far as the Pats last season being good enough to be in the playoffs..look at their schedule last season..the easiest i've ever seen.....they where 2-4 against playoff teams(beat miami and Arizona,lost to Miami,Pitt,Indy and S.D.) and 9-1 against the rest including the powerhouse Bills(x2),K.C.,Sea.,ST.L.,Oak....and average teams like Den.,S.F.,N.Y.J.(who they also lost to)... if the AFC East last season played the AFC South and the NFC South, 9-7 would have won the AFC East.All four teams in the East were LUCKY to have played the 2 weakiest divisions last year.

Detroit - Stafford?????   Yeah right

Washington - Will have the best D in history

Philly - Loaded with talent

Giants - So, So

7. Washington - Haynesworth improves an already great defense. If Portis has another big year, this team could challenge for the divison.

haha that's funny!!!!!! No, actually he left a great defense for one of the worst teams in the league. 7 spots ahead of the giants, who have a much better defense, is a slap in the face for anyone who had to read your rankings. Where you high?
