Eh, this doesn't matter. We all know who is going to win the Super Bowl anyway. :P
Now, maybe I am wrong... but there is no way in Hateees that the Cowboys are better than the Steelers at WR bud. I would take Hines over T.O. any day and Holmes is gonna run circles around anything else the Cowboys have got. Nate Washington is better than the Cowpokes No.3 guy I would almost be willing to bet on it. I look for Washington to step it up this season and have a good year as our no.3 guy.

Im not taking this rankings seriously at all. Like the title says 'pre-season.' I would take them more seriously if they came during camp. Right now no team really knows where it stands.

Why is it the Steelers are pinged for an 8-8 season last year and the Bengals are rated so high even though they've gone 8-8 three of the last four seasons? Their D is still suspect and, by my reckoning, they've had as many subtractions as additions on defense in the off-season.

Jets and Cowboys are too high as well.

All things considered, I think 13 is a reasonable ranking for the Steelers at this point.

One team I believe that is WAY too high on that list is Denver. Yes, they solidified their secondary with the addition of Bly, but their pass rush has been their biggest weakness on D for the last several years - maybe Moss and Crowder can change that, but maybe they won't. I think their LB corps has slipped as well with the loss of Al Wilson to a career-ending neck injury.

I also think Cutler is vastly overrated as a QB. For as much media criticism as Ben receives (as a QB that has actually done something in the postseason), this kid Cutler (along with Romo) are continuing to be looked at as the greatest thing since sliced bread, based on next to nothing. Living in Denver, I am force-fed a lot of Broncos games and having watched Cutler quite a bit last season, I can honestly say the kid hasn't impressed me one iota yet. No way they challenge the Chargers for the AFC West crown this season nor should they be ranked 7th on this list.

The Raiders are going to win it all this year!

(Why not? It makes about as much sense as most of the other picks on here)
