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.

    • Willis - the 4th round pick they traded up to get will be lucky to make the 53?  Man that is highly questionable. I’d say he is much closer to a lock to make the roster than be cut prior to opening day. 
    • Well Im back been a long haul , my wife being blind had rotator cuff surgery and been in bad turn at same time so my cups been full.  But look lol the Central is just about where I left it. 162 games tells the story . Cards Cubs Brewers all right there together.
    • Faulk was a great player, but he was never a pure grind out yards type running back. Edge was.   James is a huge part of why the offense exploded in 1999 after we traded Faulk & drafted James. The play action to Edge/ bomb over the top to Harrison was absolutely LETHAL 
    • As you have noticed,  I have taken a long time to respond.   Apologies in advance,  my response is long....   Everything you think I "overstated" I personally think I understated.     And I think all the arguments you used to make a case that the spring is more ideal than the winter is hugely overstated.   Look at the last sentence of your post...    how you describe "looking at the bigger picture and taking your time..."        Says who?      Who says an owner didn't look at the bigger picture in December as a disappointing season was coming to an end and that a decision was rushed?    That's entirely written by you as opinion based on zero known facts.    And it's your interpretation that better decisions can be made in the spring.   Huh?    When it's too late to fire the HC and his staff that gave you the disappointing previous season that got the GM fired in the first place.    Now, your new GM has to deal with a HC and staff that he didn't hire.   Now everyone in the building is walking on pins and neeedles wondering if they'll get fired or be retained.   So,  all the advantages of doing those decisions in winter of Y1 for the new GM,  now have to be done in winter of Y2.     So, if they're going to be done,  how is it better to flush a year down the drain and do it the following year?   I see lots of opinion,  and very little fact.    You've tossed out a number of interesting names that are available now....    nice names and none were in the running for a GM job 5 months ago,  and suddenly you think the next hot GM is in the pile?    I appreciate that Nick Caserio might be the exception to the Patriots rule from the BB tree....    but BB has a poor record of turning out good HC's elsewhere.   He might someday....   but not so far.    Front office is decent I think, so maybe Caserio is good?   But Don't you want to get all of this done sooner than later?    Don't you want to rip the band-aid off ASAP?   Doesn't the new GM want to hire his own guy,  his own staff, ASAP?     And if you think the answer is no,  then why don't all GM's who get hired in January,  do it your way?    Why don't they keep the staff,  the HC,  coordinators and assistants,  all the front office types and the scouts,  and do all the changes the following winter?     Why don't they do that?   They don't,  do they?   I really wish this was just a simple thought experiment.   That you were simply making a case that making a GM change in the spring is do-able and not anythig else.    Some here don't understand when it happens at all in the spring and I've made the argument several times that the spring isn't as bad as you think.    Doable under certain circumstances is perfectly OK.   But you're not doing that.     You're not arguing for doable.   Instead you're arguing for desireable.    And you think it's an easy decision.    I confess that even as your biggest admirer,  perhaps BECAUSE I'm your biggest admirer,  I find this position more than a little head scratching.....   Just saying....      
    • Middleton had a contract that was 4 years or longer and the Bucks have his bird rights. That doesn't apply for Randle and the Pelicans.
