Nice post CS85...interesting..Colts O-line #3.....Cowboys receivers #1...those two puzzle me....after what we did to the Colts line last year...and I assume they are factoring in TO...who will probably be a non-factor....

I thought they were pretty good overall...just a few curveballs thrown in here and there.

I'm surprised we didn't get in the top 5 O-Lines, I mean we have 3 pro-bowlers plus solid depth...

I may just be being a homer, but I think the Chargers have the Number 1 rushing. The Seahawks have Alexander, but that's it. The Chargers have Tomlinson (arguably better than Alexander) and Michael Turner, who could be the best backup RB in the game. I do like SD in the top 5 in receiving, a position that doesn't get much respect on the Chargers.

I'm kinda suprised we aren't in the bottom 5 of QB's. We have an unproven Rivers and.. uh..

Thanks for the article.

Although I think the Chargers make a strong case for #1 in RB's, I can see where they are coming from with the Seahawks. First of all, I think they are assuming that Alexander is better than LT based on production...an arguable point. Michael Turner is a good backup, but so is Maurice Morris for the Seahawks. Then at FB, the Chargers have Lorenzo Neal, but the Seahawks have Mack Strong. I think all across the board the Chargers and Seahawks are pretty even...you could argue either way.

This was a bit of a surprise, but I think it's because they considered the TE position as part of the receiving category and the Chargers obviously have the best in that regard.

I still don't think they are even. I really just think it's because of Alexander winning the MVP and the bandwagon riding. Turner is a wrecking ball with speed, and Neal VS Strong is hardly an argument as to who is the better blocker. Neal has proven he can block for any team and any RB, while Strong has done it for few RB's and only with one team.
