Default Who's legit, who's not, and who's the jury still out on.

I don't do power rankings, rankings are for college. In the NFL you're either a legitimate SB contender or your not. Well in some cases you have teams where you're just not sure on yet, so I have them listed in a seperate category.

So here's the teams I consider legitimate SB teams as of now.

Legit AFC.

Jets, Ravens, Steelers, Colts, Chargers.

Jury still out AFC.

Bengals, Texans, Patriots, Dolphins.

Flush the rest.

NFC legit.

Packers, Saints, Falcons.

Jury still out.

Giants, Cowboys, Vikings, Eagles ( if Vick makes a quick comeback)

flush the rest.

Good list, but I'd add the Rams to mine. I know, I know, it's the Rams. But Bradford looks real good, and they've been blowing teams out the past couple of weeks. I think they'll surprise a lot of people. I say they take the division and get at least to the divisional round of the playoffs.

I think the Texans are pretty legit atop the AFC South right now as well.

Remember it's who I believe are legitimate SB contenders, not who I think are dark horse playoff teams.

Seriously I love Bradford, give them another season and maybe they'll be up there with the big boys.

As far as the Texans, I was very close to putting them on the top line, maybe i should have? You certainly can make their case, but for whatever reason I'm just not feeling it. Losing at home to the Cowboys makes me wonder if they're a big game team?

The Bengals were probably the team I was closest to leaving off the list with the flushers. Carson Palmer is a poor big game qb.

I'm taking Rams and Jets for this years SB.

It would piss a lot of people off. I like that.

You heard it here first.

The Rams wouldn't piss me off, but anyone other than the Steelers in the AFC would.

I don't think the Chargers are any more legit this year than any other. Once again, they'll turn it on just in time to make the playoffs in their weak division, then lose... probably to us.

I was right on the Texans, I'm not putting them on the flushers list just yet, but another home loss and I'm going to be very tempted to. They play the chiefs in Houston next week, the winner goes( or stays) on my jury still out list, the loser gets flushed.

Revised

Legit AFC.

Jets, Ravens, Steelers, .

Jury still out AFC.

Colts, Chargers, Texans, Patriots, Dolphins. Chiefs,titans

Jets, Ravens and Steelers look to be the 3 best teams in football and by more than just a little.



NFC legit.

Packers, Saints, Falcons. Giants

Jury still out.

Cowboys, Vikings, Eagles, Redskins

flush the rest.


The NFC looks pretty bad at the moment except maybe for the Giants, and it was only two weeks ago that the Giants looked like total crap.

How are the Patriots not listed as contenders?
