Week One Power Rankings

With one week in the books, it’s time to reconfigure the Power Rankings.

For those of you who think that a win by your favorite team guarantees a spot in the top 16, think again. 

And for those of you who review these in the Rumor Mill, click again.


1.  New Orleans Saints (No. 1 last week; 1-0):  It wasn’t
pretty, but the fleur-de-lis are still kings of the hill. 

2. 
Baltimore Ravens  (No. 3; 1-0):  Less than two years after spoiling the
Texas Stadium swan song, the Ravens screwed up the Jets’ coming-out
party at the new Meadowlands Stadium.

3.  New England Patriots
(No. 8; 1-0):  Sending the Jets to 0-2 could be as satisfying for the
Pats as any of their Super Bowl wins.   

4.  Minnesota Vikings
(No. 4; 0-1):  The schedule doesn’t get much easier, but losing by only
five on the night they raised the banner in New Orleans is no cause for
panic. 

5.  Green Bay Packers (No. 7; 1-0):  Despite handing out multiple concussions to Eagles players, the Packers need to learn how to deliver a knockout blow.

6.  Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 10; 1-0):  If Troy Polamalu stays healthy, the Steelers could be at No. 1 by Halloween.

7.  Houston Texans (No. 13; 1-0):  If the Texans don’t get too carried
away with a possible changing-of-the-guard win over Indy, this could be
Houston’s year to make some real noise.

8.  Tennessee Titans (No.
17; 1-0):  Why do we have a feeling that the team that used to play in
Houston is on a collision course with the team that currently plays there?

9.  Indianapolis Colts (No. 2; 0-1):  Since starting the 2009 season
with a 14-0 record, the Colts are 2-4, with an average margin of defeat
in excess of 15.

10.  New York Jets (No. 6; 0-1):  Giants fans finally have forgiven the Ravens for Super Bowl XXXV.   

11. 
Miami Dolphins (No. 12; 1-0):  A much tougher test than Trent Edwards
comes on Sunday, when the Fins get a full dose of Favre.

12.  New
York Giants (No. 14; 1-0):  What better way to open the new stadium
than winning there on Sunday, and then watching the Jets lose there on
Monday?

13. Washington Redskins (No. 19; 1-0):  Albert Haynesworth has volunteered to be traded to the Cowboys and play right tackle.

14.  Dallas Cowboys (No. 5; 0-1):  It could be a long year for Wade Phillips.  Or maybe it will be a short one.

15. 
Jacksonville Jaguars (No. 18; 1-0):  Kassim Osgood made the most of his
chance to finally play offense by delivering a game-winning touchdown
reception.

16.  Kansas City Chiefs (No. 25; 1-0):  The Chiefs gave Philip Rivers a much-needed “Code Red.”   

17. 
San Diego Chargers (No. 9; 0-1):  Another year, another slow start for the Chargers.   

18. 
Cincinnati Bengals (No. 11; 0-1):  Maybe Batman and Robin left the
field early at halftime because they thought the Commissioner had
activated the Batsignal.  (Hat tip to PFT reader who put that either in
the comments or on Twitter, or both.)

19.  Atlanta Falcons (No. 15;
0-1):  If Matt Ryan wants to be a top-five quarterback, he needs to
deliver late wins on the road against tough teams.   

20.
  Philadelphia Eagles (No. 16; 0-1):  Some Eagles fans already want to
know if the Redskins maybe would trade Donovan McNabb back to Philly.

21. 
Chicago Bears (No. 23; 1-0):  Needing a fluke to beat a team that had won only two games in two years is not the ideal way to start the season.    

22.  Denver Broncos (No. 21; 0-1):  The Broncos are now 2-9 since starting 6-0 last year.  

23. 
Carolina Panthers (No. 22; 0-1):  In anticipation of his first start,
Jimmy Clausen will spend extra time working on throwing . . . his
receivers under the bus.

24. 
Seattle Seahawks (No. 26; 1-0):  The Seahawks won their opening game by
25 points.  And last year they won it by 28.  And then they lost 11 of
the next 15.

25.  Arizona Cardinals (No. 24; 1-0):  Unless the Rams have gotten a lot better, the Cardinals could be in for a long year.

26. 
San Francisco 49ers (No. 20; 0-1):  Mike Singletary could be thanking a lot more opposing coaches this year. 

27.  Detroit Lions (No. 29; 0-1):  Over the next few weeks, Shaun Hill gets a chance to prove that the Niners kept the wrong guy.  

28.  St. Louis Rams (No. 30; 0-1):  Sam Bradford will need another shoulder operation after throwing more than 50 passes on Sunday.

29.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No. 32; 1-0):  Quietly, the Bucs have won three of their last four games.

30.  Cleveland Browns (No. 27; 0-1):  Jake Delhomme’s redemption had a much shorter shelf-life than his disintegration. 

31.  Oakland Raiders (No. 28; 0-1):  It’s a good thing the Raiders have improved so much since last year.     

32.  Buffalo Bills (No. 31; 0-1):  It’s a good thing the Bills hired an offensive genius.

    Shaun Hill can’t play QB long term, thats a given. He has heart for days, and is clutch, but when teams game plan for him he is completely finished and has nothing to offer besides toughness.

  6. bobinpuertorico says: Sep 14, 2010 8:08 AM

    Florio, it is good to see that Miami’s narrow victory over the powerful Bills caused them to move up a spot. Unfortunately, Buffalo’s narrow loss to the weak Dolphins caused them to drop a spot.
    Since you do not follow the NFL, you probably do not appreciate how well Buffalo’s defense played. Their offense could do nothing, primarily because their offensive line (LT and RT) were very bad, which caused their defense to be on the field all day. Still, Buffalo allowed the 9th fewest yards per play.
    If the Bills can trade for a decent LT and/or RT, they would immediately deserve a much higher ranking. Until then, they should be ranked in the bottom 25% of the NFL, although not last.

  7. Krow says: Sep 14, 2010 8:10 AM

    How come the Jets aren’t #1?

    “4. Minnesota Vikings (No. 4; 0-1): The schedule doesn’t get much easier, but losing by only five on the night they raised the banner in New Orleans is no cause for panic. ”
    Agreed. There was obvious rust on the offensive side of the ball that will work its self out over the next couple games. Match-ups against Miami and Detroit followed by the bye wee should allow them to work those out and fine tune the offense. And losing by 5 points to the SB champs in their home is not the end of the world. That Minnisota defense looks tough, and remember, they will get more talent back from injury into that secondary soon.

    your Philly/McNabb comment is ridiculous and tired. Did you see McLOW’s stats?
    Take out the RB and TE and he was about 7 of 24 for 90 yards. TRUE fans of the Eagles will GLADLY take a step back in order to move forward in the future. The relationship was broken and needed to come to an end.
    You have the Texans too low–of ALL teams, they beat the BEST opponent. Jets top 10? Someone bought in to the HBO hype & after Dallas’ stinkola, they should have fallen to high teens

    You have been talking to the wrong fans. We don’t want McNabb back. Kolb will be fine. You can’t give someone 1/2 a game to prove that they are a great QB. Eagles will be fine in the long run.

    how do the packers barely beat a team that was already ranked lower than them, who moved even lower after the loss, after almost allowing a last minute 17-point comeback… AND YET THEY MOVE UP?!? you’re an idiot. ravens at #2? and the colts drop that far by losing to a division rival that was due for a win against them?
    if this site wasn’t so funny, i’d have stopped reading it a long time ago.

    Flroio I know Dallas lost the game but in no way shape or form were the Redskins a better team. The Redskins played like garbage and should not be ranked higher than Dallas just because they have the two dumbest coaches in the history of the NFL.

    Matt Ryan has a LONG way to go before he is considered a top 10 QB, let alone a top 5. He’ll never be a top 5 QB. The kid is the definition of a mediocre NFL QB, just like Joe Flacco.

  24. kravon says: Sep 14, 2010 8:44 AM

    RC IV -
    We are 1-0…I don’t care personally about someones power rankings…they mean nothing to me. Despite the Packs not-so-great play, we came out with a road win…something the Vikes have no clue how to do (5 game road losing streak)….so whatever.

  27. Pack_Attack says: Sep 14, 2010 8:56 AM

    Ok, Im a homer but everyone got bitch slapped last week except that Packers. Not that I care, its best we stay under the radar as as much as possible–see you in January!

  28. Maximus says: Sep 14, 2010 8:56 AM

    Truly stunning how high you put my beloved Raiders. Did someone actually play worse? OK the Defense played well at times.
    But Jason Campbell – reminded me of Jamarcus Russell. Really. Now I know why the Redskins faithful were glad to be rid of Campbell.
    Now the only question is how long do we Raider fans have to suffer with this loser QB.
    Please start Gradkowski. Give us a chance before it’s too late.

  29. Pervy H. says: Sep 14, 2010 8:58 AM

    @ RC IV- Packers should be about 10 on this poll if you really look at it. Colts,Steelers, Texans,Giants,Titans all better….

    it’s not like the vikings lost to a poor team. they were, you know, the superbowl champions…

    1. The Texans should be absolutely be higher than the Steelers! Did you see the beatdown that the Texans put on Indy???
    2. To NY fan, instead of chanting J-E-T-S, you should be chanting J-O-K-E-S! That offense was truly pathetic looking. And what was with all of those penalties???? Ranked at #10 is too high for this extremely over-hyped team!
    It should be…
    1. Saints
    2. Patriots
    3. Green Bay
    4. Texans
    5. Baltimore
    6. Viings

    Favre looks his age and they lose, but stay at #4, but the Colts fall to #9?
    I predict that next week, the Bengals will beat the Ravens, and you will still have them at #2 and the Bengals will be even lower.

    Those that say the Packers should be ranked higher than the Vikings need to think of just a couple of things…… Karen Rodgers threw 2 interceptions and was sacked 3 times which helps prove once again that the fudgepackers O line is already swiss cheese.
    If a decent team can get thru, what will a GOOD team do?

  38. JimmySmith says: Sep 14, 2010 9:21 AM

    It’s a long season so I can hardly get worked up over Week 1 rankings. Still, the Vikings at #4 just proves the lack of objectivity on the part of Florio, a Favre and Viking fan in spite of it all.
    Keep riding that train, its final destination is still nowhere, 50 years of nowhere, but they do make it interesting when they get around to losing at the most critical times.

  44. NationalFelonLeague.com © says: Sep 14, 2010 9:42 AM

    Not bad overall.
    Think the Pats view the Jets as a division rival and would be happy to send them to 0-2, but since the Pats have been to Super Bowls I don’t see them comparing any regular season game to a SB.
    Who do I talk to to get you to replace Dungy as a commentator on Football night in America? Broadcasting is not his thing and he can’t ride Peyton forever.

  46. Calistin says: Sep 14, 2010 9:48 AM

    Funny how a poor performance and a loss from the Vikings means they are good, yet a gutty road win for the Packers where they built and defended a lead despite injuries, is bad.
    It’s “garbage pts” if the Pack score from behind, but when the Eagles do it, it’s “blowing a lead.”
    Niether team really looked inept on either side of the ball. Both looked like how most teams look on opening day. Sloppy.
    I don’t think any fan on either side would tell you that their team’s performance this past sunday is indicative of their potential.

  47. ruascott says: Sep 14, 2010 9:49 AM

    So the Steelers have to go to OT at home to win against an average at best Falcons team, and now you are predicting they will be #1 by Halloween? Most predictors have the Steelers finsihing third in their own division.
    The Colts lose one road game within the division and now there is a “changing of the guard”. Holy crap, has this guy not been watching the NFL for last 8 years?
    Good lord, talk about overstating the importance of one week’s games. The same idiot that posted yesterday that Bob Sanders was out for the season, only to see that he participated in practice 5 hours later. How does this idiot have a job? I could get 5th graders to write this crap.

  48. somesome says: Sep 14, 2010 9:49 AM

    The Flacco comments just expose everyone not understanding foot, 20 completed passes for 240 is better than half the league played let alone agianst the number 1 defense. Just because he doesn’t look the part some people want him to doesn’t mean he has any issues reading the field. He completed 20 passes against the most blitzes launched by any team this weekend. Rivers couldn’t move his team last ight either and that was against the Chefs. There are no 9 QBs in the league that are better …

    my GOD how do you put the Vikes at #4 after last week? I don’t even think the Pack deserves #5, but everyone and their mothers know they should be ahead of the Vikings.
    Smarter QB with a similar arm and 20 years younger(not to mention a head coach calling the shots on offense), best receivers in the league compared to the most overrated, and even though the Vikes defense is awesome up front it is not as well rounded as Capers’ 3-4.
    My Bears, on the other hand, are almost right where they should be after Sunday’s performance… although it’s hard for me to see how the Eagles are a better team with similar skill players despite O line problems, an unproven defense, and questions at quarterback. Oh, that’s right, Mike Florio rights this blog.

    YES! You have the Vikings just right. I mean they did lose yes, but they lost to the SB champions, in an intense opposing territory, one of their main players not playing,and a late comer QB yet lost by only 5 points.

    9. Indianapolis Colts (No. 2; 0-1): Since starting the 2009 season with a 14-0 record, the Colts are 2-4, with an average margin of defeat in excess of 15.
    Actually, put another way the Colts starters are 2-2 since starting 14-0; or the Cotlts starters are 16-2 since the beginning of last season; or put another way..Florio is the dumbest “analyst” in sprotswriting.

  63. Legend says: Sep 14, 2010 10:40 AM

    Interesting. So, the team you ranked 28th (Oaklan) last week was blown out by the team you had ranked 17th (Tenn) last week, and that means that Tennessee jumps up to #8 overall?
    From your dismissive comment about the Raiders and your vaunting of the Titans it’s hard to figure out whether or not you thought Tenn really proved anything this past week or not. If the Raiders are that bad, why the big jump for Tenn? You can’t have it both ways.

  64. Animal30 says: Sep 14, 2010 10:41 AM

    This is comical how the vikings are #4 and ahead of the pack. For the pack to go to Philly and beat them for the first time there since ’69 tells you a lot about this team.
    Honestly Vick was pretty darn awesome on Sunday. But Matthews and the packers d came up big when needed.
    You guys all act like Philly are a bunch pansies and not a tough team. I’ll tell you right now Philly may be the best team in the east with Vick at QB. Kolb will be a project, but with Vick I think they have a great shot at beating everybody in the east.

    The Steelers were in the middle of the pack of every one of these “power rankings” that every media outlet put together over the summer. Now their #6 here. It only took one game for all the naysayers to jump on their bandwagon yet again. Also, while it’s true that Polamalu’s health is obviously a significant factor to the Steelers’ success (or lack thereof, such as last season), the entire defense played well on Sunday. Despite Troy’s interception at exactly the right time, he didn’t play a fantastic game on Sunday (which he himself told reporters after the game). That win was about the defense as a whole, good punt/kick return coverage (Hallelujah!), Ward having another great outing and the offense stepping up the blocking on Mendenhall’s game winning TD.
    Also, how are the Jets #10? Did you watch that game last night? Their pitiful offense and 125 penalty yards do not equal a top 10. Thought they were overrated all summer, and now that has been proven.

    Florio, it is good to see that Miami’s narrow victory over the powerful Bills caused them to move up a spot. Unfortunately, Buffalo’s narrow loss to the weak Dolphins caused them to drop a spot.
    Since you do not follow the NFL, you probably do not appreciate how well Buffalo’s defense played. Their offense could do nothing, primarily because their offensive line (LT and RT) were very bad, which caused their defense to be on the field all day. Still, Buffalo allowed the 9th fewest yards per play.
    If the Bills can trade for a decent LT and/or RT, they would immediately deserve a much higher ranking. Until then, they should be ranked in the bottom 25% of the NFL, although not last.
    where they should be after Sunday’s performance… although it’s hard for me to see how the Eagles are a better team with similar skill players despite O line problems, an unproven defense, and questions at quarterback. Oh, that’s right, Mike Florio rights this blog.

    Miami #11? did you draw your picks out of a bowl?
    I totally agree with these fellas. Buffalo’s D kept miami from scoring more than 13 points and we are rated last? Miami #11? Do you realize the Bills were 1 play away from taking the game away? Miami wasn’t a force at all. I am more pissed off about the fish at #11 than Buffalo at #32. If we put the SB pick Packers on their a-ses, do we move into the top 10? Go Bills!!

    As a Texans fan, I loved the win over the Colts. I think our team’s moving in right direction…HOWEVER, I don’t have a good feeling about our chances this year. 1) we have a KILLER schedule and have to play the physical NFC East. 2)our division (AFC South) is rough…we have to play the Colts again, and face the Titans twice. 3) we don’t have much depth on defense…no Brian Cushing for 3 more games; Connor Barwin’s on injured reserve; we have absolutely no depth in our secondary. Even if we stay healthy, I still think the Colts win our division. Maybe we sneak in as a wild card, but there are A LOT of good AFC teams. We could go 10-6, but still miss the play-off’s.

    It’s obvious that Florio realizes that Packer/Viking stories on his site receive the most readers/comments. That is the only reason he ranked the Vikings ahead of the Packers. He wanted controversy so there would be a lot of comments. By the end of the year the Packers will be 4 games ahead of the Vikes, and atop the power rankings.

    And oh by the way, they played in the Super Bowl during that stretch. Yeah, they’re definitely the 9th best NFL team 7 months after playing in the Super Bowl and losing practically no one.

    The Colts should be in the top 5, maybe even the top 3. Why? By masterfully executing a plan they have been working on since the end of the regular season last year. By throwing the very first game of this season they will no longer be pressured to complete a “Perfect” season. When they inevitably clinch home field advantage for the playoffs, the Colts can rest all of their starters for the balance of the regular season and let the “B” team get a couple/few reps in. heh

  86. Richm2257 says: Sep 14, 2010 11:53 AM

    Please, please, PLEASE; once and for all tell us this magic “formula” for concocting these rankings? Otherwise we’ll all be forced to continue thinking you’re hooked on crack.
    How on God’s green earth do the Ravens – who barely eeked out a win over the pathetic Jets – get ranked ahead of New Enland, who thoroughly spanked an improved division-winning team from ’09??? And how – tell me PLEASE – do the gawd-awful Jets get ranked TENTH, ahead of the Dolphins, who at least BEAT somebody??????? It’s not like the Jets looked any better than the Bills!
    There are so many ridiculous rankings that I honestly can’t give this rating a shred of credibility. I mean, seriously, rating the pathetic Cowboys ahead of the Chiefs who pulled off a stunning beat-down of the perenial Super Bowl favorite Chargers?

  87. Tornadoes28 says: Sep 14, 2010 11:59 AM

    The Ravens score a measly 10 points and beat the overrated Jets by only 1 point and you have them ranked #2? Makes your rankings completely meaningless I guess.

  88. Daxel says: Sep 14, 2010 12:03 PM

    I’m not usually one to comment, but how did you figure the Ravens for #2? Their offense was barely there, and if it wasn’t for the sheer onslaught of penalties by the jets, they would not have been withing scoring range at any point. How does a team that is given 200 yards in penalties only walk away with 10 points? If you gave either Manning, Brees, Brady, or Farve that kind of bonus, the score would have been 35 to 9, not 10 to 9. If Flacco can’t get it together, it is going to be a hard year for the Ravens. Their running game was also not there – how many plays do you need to go a yard on the ground? Apparently 4 each time.

  89. Shannon Nutt says: Sep 14, 2010 12:15 PM

    Wonders how long it will be until the “experts” get off the Ravens bandwagon. Yes, they’re a solid team, but nowhere near the second best team in the league. I’m not even sure they’re the best team in the AFC North.

  90. CutList says: Sep 14, 2010 12:24 PM

    Florio deserves to be called out for the Colts comment. Including the “Hey Peyton, go shoot a few more commercials, we’ve got home field advantage in the bag” games as if they are a meaningful indicator of anything? Ignoring that in that stretch they won two playoff games and got to the Super Bowl? Heck, a reference to the Super Bowl loser’s curse would have even been more relevent than the 2-4 inanity.
    As for the Packers-Vikings, the Vikings game was essentially a 20-10 affair if you discount for kicker ineptitude. As for the Packers, their QB played one of the worst games of his career, their running back missed more than half of the game and they still put up 27 points on the road against a good defense. Plus, the one thing they had a problem with on defense, a running QB, is something I don’t believe they will have to face again this season (unless they play the Eagles or Titans in the playoffs).

  91. dlmcc0909 says: Sep 14, 2010 12:46 PM

    Vikings should not be at #4 after a loss. Id have Green Bay ranked higher, coming off a good win against a tough opponent on the road like that. I didnt like what i saw from Minnesota.
    Ravens cant be #2 just because they beat a Jets team that had absolutely no offense whatsoever. I think New England would beat the Ravens if they played right now

    Theres no reason why the BEARS, BRONCOS, PANTHERS, and 49ers should be ranked better than the Bucs. Tampa came back and won it in the 4th quarter. With the exception of the bears, all the other teams mentioned lost and the bears should have aswell.
    If you are going to put an 0-1 team in the top 5 based on potential, you should have put the colts not the Vikings.

    Smarter QB with a similar arm and 20 years younger(not to mention a head coach calling the shots on offense), best receivers in the league compared to the most overrated, and even though the Vikes defense is awesome up front it is not as well rounded as Capers’ 3-4.
    Why, becuase the Pack barely beat a QBless and clearly on the decline Philly team?
    Rodgers smarter? lol, okay. He still holds on to the ball to long and taking too many sacks. You are right about one thing, he has the best WR corps in the league. Imagine if he had Minn WRs? lolz

    Steelers should be at 2. You forget they won with their third string QB, and shut down an actual NFL QB.
    If Houston does have a running game to go with Schaub’s passing, they’re pretty dangerous. We’ll see.
    Saints? That game was more about Favre being off than anything else. If he wasn’t so rusty, who knows how the game turns out.
    Ravens? Please. They shut down Mark Sanchez, who is NOT an NFL QB. Their mighty offense put up one bogus TD courtesy of a phantom roughing call, plus a phantom PI call. Otherwise they lose. They’re not going anywhere with “Average Joe” Flacco at the helm. (Although I heard he does a mean job sleeping on his mother’s couch.)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is hilarious. You think your team rocked it? You almost got beat by a second string QB after you concussed the starter. I’m sure you were probably talking about Favre’s alleged “rustiness”, too. Here’s a hint: He’s got basically the SAME QB rating at this point as your precious Aaron Rodgers. Additionally, your o-line STILL sucks which is why your QB was face-planted 3 different times during the game. FYI – your QB has 2x as many INTs as Favre at this point. How’s that for a bitch slappin’?
    You’ll be seeing people in January. When you’re in the bar watching other teams, including the NFC North Champions, the Vikings, play in the play-offs.

    It is true that the Power Rankings mean nothing, as everything is settled in the Playoffs. With that being said, it is great to read and debate. I don’t understand why you would read them if you see them as anything else.
    Next, to the Ravens haters. There are about 25 to 28 other teams out there that would have lost that game last night, most likely smoked. The Ravens turned the ball over three times, and still managed to win at the home/stadium opener for the Jets. Check the stats on how many teams win with a -2 turnover margin. Then you may understand how difficult that win was to get.
    Whether the Jets backed in last year or not, they still won two playoff games on the road. When will all of the Bush League Weekend Warrior Football Fans realize that Week One is just that. One week. Long way to go!!

Seattle opened again the Lambs last year. Predicted by ALL to be horrible. This year they play the “pre-determined” NFC West champs and demolish them. Hmmm, kinda different huh Mr. “If I only had a Brain” Florio. Then, hmmmm maybe Seattle has a new…. wait its coming to me, yeah yeah, that’s right, a new coach. So, Florio, you ignorant pond scum analyzer, you still want to compare.
    Listen, I am not dumb, a difference doesn’t 1 game make, but, let’s give a team which has undergone more change than any other NFL Team, let’s give them at least a 1 week Gold Star instead off peeing in there koolaid.

    Is your comment about the Bills’ coach sarcastic? Or are you being serious? I would like to know. Whoever approves of the posts that go on the blogs – can you try and get me an answer?
    I’m assuming it is sarcastic. Yet, I still desire confirmation.

    Jets lose, Dolphins win, yet Jets are ranked ahead of them? At least the rankings that matter, the standings, are more accurate.

    I promise you the Ravens are not as good as everyone thinks. They played a JV team on Monday night and looked decent. I respect the Ravens but everyone needs to get off their dick.
    The Falcons are for real this year. The Steelers D was just that much better. The window is still open for the Steelers this year.

    I saw that 50 on their jerseys and thought that it was the qb’s age. On a side note, I hear that Chilly is going to send some players out to talk to Fran Tarkenton and possibly Joe Namath to see if they want to make a comeback.

    Oakland is easily 28th. Better yet, how about just taking the last five teams and lumping them together in the bottom of the barrel, and don’t even bother to give them numbers.

    Good thing I follow the opinions of a run-down lawyer. True Pro football analyst there Florio, tch. Anyway, the Bucs 6 wins over 3 years is going to feel real good when the whole TB community jams those words down your throat.

    Ravens will go to the post season for the third time in a row this year, only about 5-6 other teams will have done that too at the end of this season.
    Steelers won’t have and as far as I remember the Pats were like 0-14 in the first 5 minutes of their playoff game last year …. first you have to beat the Ravens before you can dump on them …
