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.

i highly doubt that the bills are gonna win anything this year.  one player does not make a team.  the pat's are gonna win it all.  the bills have a crappy quarterback who can't throw anything more than 40 yards.

of course it would be a colts fan to have the Chargers down at #20.  Talk about no credibility. 

Guess getting bounced from the playoffs by us year after year would make a guy bitter.  Lol.

Don't worry bowlbound-he just has to have the Pats rated that high to justify the fact that his beloved Eagles blew the Super Bowl to those very same Pats.  Otherwise, he'd have to admit that (gasp) the Eagles aren't that good.

It's laughable when I read posts from people like you, who have no shame whatsoever in claiming that YOUR team is the be all end all.  What a surprise!  You have the Eagles as the 2nd best team in the NFL - shocking.  Leave it to a Philly fan to display their total ignorance for everybody on the world wide net to see.  Are the Eagles going to be a decent team?  Sure.  But you don't lose Brian Dawkins, your long time Defensive Coordinator and add another year to the already injury plagued Brian Westbrook and be the 2nd best team in the NFL.  And how convenient - you have the Eagles biggest rival, the Giants, as the 14th best team in the league.  Fourteenth!!!  As if having the Eagles 2nd wasn't showing your bias enough, you put the Giants at 14!!!  Get a clue Philly guy.  It's people like you that make that city nothing but trash.

Re: Pats Number 1? What Planet are you on .
First , they have a returning qb with a bum acl, an aging defense, an aging O line, and as you put it , all they do is win Super Bowls.

3 Bowls in the past 6 years , and all dominating performances( each and every one a 3 point win) and the first won should not even have
happened.Remember the insanely stupid tuck rule against the Raiders.

Give the Steelers their due .They are THE DEFENDING CHAMPS, are returning 21 starters,have won 2 SuperBowls in the last 4 years
and are the odds on favorities to do it again.

This love affiar with Brady and Bilicheck has got to end.The coachcheats, the qb dates super models,and the owner is arogant.
Nice creds for Super stardom.

Super Bowl XLIV    Steelers 34   Philly    24    Lucky number 7 on the way.

P.S.Season Opener memo to the Titans.Stomp on the Terrible Towel last year, Get stomped this year.

Kick off Game   Steelers 35 Titans  17

Yeah... he's got the Eagles at 2, and the Redskins at 7... but the Giants are 14th, and the Cowboys are 19th?  That's just ridiculous.
