SchrockStar's NFL Power Rankings

1. Colts - let's be honest: I'm a homer, they're #1 until they lose a game. I know their Run D sucks, but they'll fix it by January
2. Bears - everyone knows how scary their D is, but Grossman has quickly matured into a stable QB
3. Eagles - Winning with so few superstars demonstrates Reid's coaching staff is The Elite of the league
4. Chargers - This team can't get much better at any position - except the most important one, QB
5. Seahawks - They don't lose at home, and you can't stop their 4 WR+Alexander attack - sans Lions, Ravens and Bears. Oh my!
Watching from home?
6. Broncos - Brutal schedule may prevent them from making playoffs, but they can beat any team on any day
7. Bengals - winning @ PITT was negated by losing at home to N.E. - will the real CIN please stand up?
8. Ravens - Their D can win them games as long as McNair doesn't lose them
9. Jaguars - blanking SBXL champs means they can no longer fly under the radar; need to improve coaching
Playoff probables
10. Cowboys - top10 offense and defense should get them in the playoffs, but not to Miami
11. Falcons - I'm willing to bet there was a secret deal with Goodell to tank @ N.O.
12. Steelers - Roethlisberger needs to get his act together or this team will miss the playoffs
13. Saints - New aquisitions have team and city dreaming of a postseason, and I believe it
14. Giants - This is the best team with a losing record I've ever seen
15. Patriots - The running game will keep their playoff streak alive; win @ CIN was closer than final outcome
Wild Card contenders
16. Rams - With each game being decided by TD or less, only thing certain is their games are fun to watch
17. Panthers - Defense looking not as potent as '05 squad, and they still have Jake Delhomme
18. Chiefs - loss of IU grad Trent Green not looking as bad after shutout/blowout over S.F.
19. Jets - A near upset over IND shows Mangini and Pennington are better than everyone expected
Wishing upon a Star
20. Redskins - this is a team that should finish 11-5 on paper, but tough(est?) schedule will net 5-11
21. Vikings - All 4 games' final score for both teams: between 12 and 19. Teens and Sexboats don't match
22. Bills - this team can compete with their division, although it's the weakest in the NFL
23. Browns - the only bright spot is a solid Pass D, but they have a looooooong way to go
24. Cardinals - Great skill-position players on offenese means big-play capabilities, but that's it
25. Dolphins - they could be a VERY good team if they had an O-Line
26. Bucs - Many thought this team could contend for title, but they're lucky to finish .500
who wants Brady Quinn?
27. 49ers - shockingly, they're still better than everyone projected
28. Lions - I'm befuddled how they held SEA to just 3 FGs... does anyone have gametape?
29. Packers - Aaron Brooks would throw for 400 yards and 3 TDs on their D
30. Titans - the only wins they'll get this season are vs Houston
31. Texans - Mario Williams is a start
32. Radiers - {this space intentionally left blank}
