Default Are the Steelers in your power rankings top 5?

We read all the different power ranking! All just opinions. Give us your top 5 teams, as of right now! And why? Are the Steelers in yours?

Clevestinks Power Rankings as of 12/27/05

1. Indy Colts, I still think that they are the team to beat. They can be beat though!
2. Seattle Seahawks Alexander is tough, and they should have an easy go of it in the NFC
3. NE Patriots, There rolling, and who has more playoff experience than them?
4. Denver Broncos, this is the one team that I haven`t followed all season.
5. Washington Redskins, I really don`t think they can win it all, but they are looking pretty solid.

Pittsburgh Steelers? Until we are officially in the playoffs, I won`t consider us a top 5 team. But next we maybe the big mover?

The Redskins at #5!!!????

1. Indy
2. Seattle
3. New England
4. Denver
5. Cincy (they beat us in our house and will be favored if we play them on the road)

As for conference power, I would pick any AFC playoff team other than Jax to beat any NFC playoff team other than Seattle.

Absolutely!




Not....

1. Seattle
2. Indy (Sure Peyton didn't play, but was that really the reason)
3. New England
4. Denver
5. Tampa Bay (Who would've thought they'd be 10-5 with Chris Simms?)

Cincinnati's loss to Buffalo doesn't put them in my top 5.

1. colts- these past two games ain't mean jack shit to them. and they are gonna be fighting for tonys son in the playoffs so they are number one for that reason (doesn't mean they can't be beat though)

2.seahawks- mainly cause they got the guy that carried my fantasy football team all the way to the championship game, and he's carried this team. the seahawks may be in the nfc but they are good

3. broncos- plummer has played well all season, probably won't last in the playoffs but right now they are the second seed in a very tough afc so they deserve to be right here.

4. pats- they are getting better every week (not sure if the injuries from last night are serious cause i turned off the game after the second quarter and didn't hear any updates) brady is a very good qb and can carry this team far in the playoffs (hopefully it won't happen)

5. bengals- cause like someone said they beat us in pitt, this last game didn't mean shit since the broncos were gonna win out and had no chance at a bye week. and they might be losing on purpose to not play us in the first round so i'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

i didn't put the steelers cause they ain't a lock to be in the playoffs if they were and the way they are playing now i could easily make a case for them to be number 2 in my power ranking

My Power Rankings

1. Broncos (12-3) - Model of consistency this year - mirrored by their previously unpredictable QB Jake Plummer. Look at the strength of their schedule - how is this team flying so far beneath the radar? Strong D, good running game - what more do you need?

2. Colts (13-2) - They have played consistent, high quality football this year. A couple of losses have dented their image a little but not much. We wont know just how good they really are until they leave the field after the AFCCG.

3. Patriots (10-5) - Momentum is huge entering the post-season and the Patriots have it - extra points for having the best big game QB in the game and plenty of other big game experience in the squad. The secondary remains the biggest concern.

4. Seahawks (13-2) - Its true you can only beat what is put in front of you but the Seahawks have beaten only 2 teams that are going to the AFC playoffs and 1 team from the NFC. This team looks balanced on paper but hasnt shown big game resolve in the past.

5. Steelers - Ditto the momentum comment from the Patriots. This team is on a roll which is a big factor. If fully fit , QB Ben R. should be a year wiser than last years effort against the Pats.

I have based my rankings on the teams ability to win the Superbowl and nothing else, which is why the Bengals and Chicago miss out .

Both of these teams are extremely one dimensional, now...if we could make a team with the Bengals offense and the Bears D we would have a serious contender.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

1. Colts...when they are on, they are ON.
2. Denver. They'll be tough to beat at home
3. Pittsburgh. Dangerous if they play like they did Saturday.
4. NE. The defense is suspect, but lot's of O to compensate.
5. Seattle. Belongs with the AFC best.

YES! i had them there before the season and am not about to let 2 maddox led over time losses, denying us of a 13-3 season (i thought theyd go 12-4) change how i feel about the team running on all cylinders.

indy
steelers
broncos
seahawks
pats

i am intrigued with what rex grossman can bring to the table though

Well if you go by who is playing the best football rightnow then I will rank them this way:
1 Seattle - They are pretty solid I think, we will see when the play the Bears.
2 Denver - Most consistant all year, good thing Steelers are good in the cold weather!
3 Pittsburgh - Last 3 weeks have been completely dominating!
4 (tie) Colts - they did lose to SD (last week doesnt count to me) and their O-Line is banged up a bit now
5(tie) Pats - this is all dependent on Tedy B's injury, if he is out, so are they!
