Your top-10 power rankings

Recommended Posts

The Packers will have a winning season but not be a top 10 team even if I'm wrong about Detroit. That's been the case more than once in their present era. People just fall for it every time they smack around their lame division.

The NFC East winner never stays on top. The Cowboys look good but when's the last time somebody won that division twice in a row?

In the past six seasons, the Packers have won more than 10 games four times and won 10 games one time. The only down season was 2013 when they won 8 because Rodgers broke his collarbone. So for the past six seasons with the exception of Rogers injury season they have not only been a top 10 team but also a top 5 team.

 

Just curious. Where do you see the big drop off coming this year exactly? The team should have been in the SB last year if not for the STs gaffe vs the Hawks. I have not really followed their off-season but have they lost a lot of talent?

What dropoff? I'm predicting the same thing that always happens if Detroit doesn't maintain their success. They win the division and go 1 and done whether they win 15 games or 8.

So how does that make them not a top 10 team? Only 6 teams from each conference make the post-season ...

So the Panthers were a top 10 (top 6?) team last year then?

Huh? GB has had either the 1st, 2nd or 3rd or 4th best record in their conference for the last several years. How does that not make them top 10?

Yeah beating up on the Vikings, Lions and Bears. They can atleast win all of the easy games, I'll give them that. That hasn't necessarily been the case in division winners twice in the last several years you speak of.

I like it. I'm not laughing about the Bills but I wouldn't pick them and leave New England out altogether, as hilarious as that would be.

It's the off season. It's not even preseason yet. 

 

If you were to start a season of Tecmo Super Bowl and not play any games, and all the rankings at set tied at 0, that's how it looks right now.

What did I just say? Clearly you Patriot folks just don't like to toe the line.

The Bills are coming off their first winning season in a decade. They have a great defense and they have added some players. They will be formidable. We'll see how that translates to wins.

 

The Bills have a new head coach and new offensive and defensive coordinators. They start the season against the Colts and Patriots. September will be interesting.

 

As for not toeing the line, just call me a cheater. I'm used to it.

And you said that you don't understand that because they always win their division and have a top record. They only win their division and have a top record every year because their division is horrible. The NFCN is usually worse than the South or the West ever was. The only difference is there is 1 team that can usually win the easy games and that happens to be the Packers. When's the last time somebody else won atleast 8 games twice in a row in that division? Vikings maybe? When the division produced the game's only 0-16 team?

dallas has a very good oline, one great WR and a decent QB.  they lost their RB, though and the D is nothing special.

 

i dont see why they would be better than the colts next season

Romo is much better than decent. And who cares about losing a RB?

Again, what does their division have to do with them being top 10? As you said, they win their division and still have to play 10 other games outside of it. They finished second in the NFC last year and most have them as the second best team heading into this season.

    • I don't think the waiver provision has changed, which is still a big issue. I think that makes it very unlikely that Eason goes to the PS this year; it makes little sense to spend a 4th on a guy and then expose him to waivers, unless you don't think he's working out. If Eason looks at least decent in camp, I doubt they waive him.    If I had to project right now, it would be Kelly that gets waived, with the intention of signing him back to the PS. (Followed by more unreasonable but totally predictable outcry from the three Chad Kelly stans on this board.)   Part of this goes back to the hard-coded resistance some have to carrying more than two QBs on the active roster. That's great if you have an entrenched starter who never misses games, in his prime. But over half the league typically carries 3 QBs. If you have a shaky starter, an injury-questionable starter, an old starter, or any questions at QB2, it's logical to have 3 QBs on the active roster.   In the Colts case, we have an old starter, on a new team, and our backup shouldn't be considered a potential franchise level starter. So having a developmental guy on the active roster is not only defensible, it's preferable.    Btw, I hate that first year players have to go through waivers to be put on the PS. If that rule were changed, I think some of these young players that bounce around for three years and then wind up out of the league might have a better chance at sticking somewhere.
    • I’m still a Fountain fan.  He had some bad luck with his injury, but he had a dominant camp last year...
    • Great video !!  I'm excited for this season.
    • No....  when Reich said Jacoby was ahead of Eason you said...   “who knows if that’s true or not?”      As if Reich had some reason to lie about it.   You’ve been talking in circles ever since. 
    • I never said he was lying. I said Reich is a optimist so don’t expect anything but positive stuff from him. The colts actions speak volumes of what they think of Jacobys upside.
