Sure, it's early as Hell, but why not?

http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/story/9357254

Top 10:

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/PIT.gif1Pittsburgh Steelers (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/PIT)1They are still the class of the league. Ben Roethlisberger will continue to get better, which is why they might be even better next season

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/IND.gif2Indianapolis Colts (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/IND)2How do they fill Edgerrin James' shoes? They take a young back early in the draft, plug him into the offense, and move on. It won't be as big a loss as one might think. This is a pass-first team.

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/NE.gif3New England Patriots (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/NE)3They're up in arms in New England because the Patriots haven't spent any money and they have so much cap room. Guess what? The Patriots are being smart as hell again. Don't worry about this group, they'll be just fine.

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/CAR.gif4Carolina Panthers (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/CAR)7They had as good an offseason as any team. Adding Johnson and defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu were great moves. They don't have a lot of holes, and the ones they have are not prime positions.

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/MIA.gif5Miami Dolphins (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/MIA)8Even with Culpepper, this team needs to get better line play. If they do, watch out. Ronnie Brown could be ready for a 1,500-yard season.

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/JAC.gif6Jacksonville Jaguars (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/JAC)5They entered the offseason worried about their offense, but did little other than sign two former first-round offensive tackles who have struggled for most of their career. They must be assuming a lot of growth by some young offensive players.


http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/DEN.gif7Denver Broncos (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/DEN)4They did a good job re-signing their own in Matt Lepsis and Gerard Warren, but they lost some good ones in Trevor Pryce and Mike Anderson. There hasn't been a lot added, either. But this remains a quality team.

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/SEA.gif8Seattle Seahawks (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/SEA)6Losing Steve Hutchinson at guard will hurt, but they did the right thing not matching the offer sheet. Julian Peterson will help the defense, but have they really improved?

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/NYG.gif9New York Giants (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/NYG)9Their success will hinge on how much Eli Manning grows. The feeling here is that he improves a bunch. This team also has to play better against the pass, which means a lot of pressure on free-agent corner Sam Madison.

http://images.nfl.com/images/gamecenter/60x50/DAL.gif10Dallas Cowboys (http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/rankings/DAL)17This will likely be Bill Parcells' last year, and this team is ready to make a strong Super push. They've had a nice offseason. T.O. is a great addition.

And, yes, that IS Pete (I hate the Steelers) Prisco calling us the class of the league.

But it is April, you know...he's got 5 months to get back to hating us...

The only one I don't agree with is the Jaguars. They got into the playoffs on a ***** schedule, and almos lost to the 49ers. Even with the "changes" they are still the worst team that made the playoffs.

if we can shut the dolphins out 22-0... there's no way they should be in the top ten.

atleast drop the dolphins to where the seahawks are and bump them up to 5th.
I appreciate that comment.:toast: Rep points to you (Two big ones).

I don't see why my Hawks won't break the Super Bowl loser slump trend. Losing Hutch sucks but we have some strong guys behind him. And lineman tend to do well when they are lined up next to Walter Jones.

Miami, New York, and Dallas, are you kidding me? You've got Culpepper who struggled last year and may still be recovering from last season's injury, you've got Eli Manning who can barely manage to complete half of his passes, and you've got Dallas who is relying on an aging QB and the biggest cancer in the league. Give me a break.

It's a good thing that the games are what really count.

Power rankings already! Jeez!

What becomes apparent when the season starts is the teams that a majority of pundits think are the 'sexy picks' for Power Ranking Glory.

Teams who the pundits seem desperate to move up the list.

1. Colts
2. Bengals
3. Dolphins.

Teams who cant get no (power ranking) satisfaction.

1. Patriots
2. Steelers
3. Broncos

I guarantee you that many experts are just dying to see the end of week1 so they can move the Steelers down and the Colts up.

How angry are ya if your a Seattle fan?
-They lost in the Super Bowl and this goof Prisco ranks them that low?
-Come on their left guard can't be that important to your team... they return the reigning MVP, maybe the league's best left tackle, a top ten QB, and play in the worst division the NFL has seen in tens of years.
-The Seahawks will be back in the playoffs and will more than likely have home field throughout.... so odds are they will make it past the first or second round in the playoffs.... and if this past year taught us anything it is that anything can happen in the playoffs.

Prisco got number 1 right though.... but a chimp could get that one right.... WORLD CHAMPS BABY!!!!! (i still love saying that)

Out of the top 10, the pat's will be the only team not to make the playoffs! I don't see them getting better, in fact I see them falling out of the picture pretty early! Bills, Dolphins and the Jets will be better this year.
