    If you want to retard Josh Freeman’s growth as a quarterback by a good couple years then yes.

    Tom Brady and the Patsies biggest “rival” is their own cheating scandals, which have destroyed their carefully crafted “legend”

    Jaguars K Josh Scobee bowed out of the running for the U.S. Open when he shot an 81 at Timuquana Country Club over the weekend.

    When you shoot an 81 in a qualifying event you don’t “bow out”, it’s called not making the cut.
    You have to wonder just how legit that 0.4 index is if he shoots an 81.

    ESPN Power Rankings…..
    7. Ravens – Why do they keep listing Stallworth as some sort of upgrade, what has he done since he was with the Saints pass happy scheme? They did nothing to upgrade the secondary, the Defense wasn’t good enough to support a very good offense, and all they did is add WRs in free agency.
    3. Vikings – without Farve would be ranked where, 14th? Why rank them 3rd when you don’t know if Farve is coming back and even if he does, can he repeat or do better? He’s an injury waiting to happen especially since they didn’t upgrade the LT.
    I really struggle with where to put the Vikings, Chargers, Cowboys, and Packers. But I would rank the Patriots, Jets, Bengals, Ravens, Eagles, in order right up there with them.

    “ESPN.com’s latest power rankings have the Eagles at No. 13 overall.”
    Thats fair. I think they will do alot better but as of right now they still have to prove it. However even with that I dont see how they could rank the Cardinals Bengals and Falcons ahead of the Eagles. I dont think their bad teams its just that they have just as much to prove as the Eagles do. I think the fact that the Eagles have been a top contender so constantly should get them the higher ranking.
    It doesnt matter though we will see once the season starts.
