“Hello, I’m the Power Rankings”

Every Tuesday morning, we unveil the latest non-binding and inherently meaningless list that ranks all NFL teams from top to bottom.

And, every week, it remains one of the most popular articles on the site.  Even though most of you regard the comments directed to your team as the equivalent of the only gesture in sign language the great Johnny Cash ever knew.

Maybe it’s a sad commentary on what people regard as important.  Maybe I don’t give the thing that resides at the base of a rat’s tail about it.  We give you what you want — not what we think you should want.

You want answers?

“I want the Power Rankings.”

You can’t handle the Power Rankings.

To put a slight twist on one of my favorite Johnny Cash lines (which he may or may not have ever uttered), maybe you can.

    Browns in the top 15? I don’t think so. And I’m a fan.

    Admit it, you’re just trolling us every week with your power rankings. And as long as people keep taking the bait, you’ll keep it up. Now delete this in 3, 2, 1…..

    Whoever picks the article photos needs a raise, they have been on an absolute tear lately.

    Yeah, as much as I like the Browns to be top 15 (actually 14 😀 ) yeah, they may not belong that high…but their defense is 3rd in the league in yards. (4th against rush, 9th against pass), so they just might belong. And we actually have a QB in there who knows the line sucks so he gets rid of the ball fast…epic idea!

    Go Browns…

    As much as I love the Titans, they aren’t the 12th best team without Locker at the helm. Kid was getting better with each game.

    That wasn’t Johnny Cash in that video. Some other guy. Be a little more rigorous with the fact checking.

    Once you get past #24 it is really ugly. It gets really tough to judge the worst of the worst.
