    NFL Pre-Draft Offseason Ranking

    The NFL is known for it's parity. Why then do we see the same 4 or 5 teams at the top of the league and the same 4 or 5 teams at the bottom year after year? Parity if overhyped....

    Jackson will lose us games next year? I doubt it! IMO he did not lose us any last year.

    16. Green Bay Packers: When Rodgers told everyone he isn’t Brett Favre, he wasn’t just paying us lip service.
    LOL!


    I think unless you are in the top two categories, you probably only want to read the jabs at other teams and not even bother reading your own team forecast.

    That is just laziness to go out and actually examine the teams outside the top 10 or so.
    It would take too much time.

    You are right, I don't think TJ lost us any games, well maybe the one in Det.
    Those INTs were his fault and it seemed like he was trying too hard.
    Am
    I thinking of the right game, hope so?

    Yes that was Detroit. He did hurt that game but in no way lost it. I blame that on Longwell! Just kidding.
    ;D

    It is always difficult to blame one person on any given Sunday when there are 60 minutes of football played by an entire roster of players.
    Tough to do!

    TJ played a major role in that one.

    That was such a bad read.
    He gives crappy reasons, but i liked the Texans explanation though...

    The writer is a Canadian Chargers fan...his analysis
    : isn't worth the space it's taking up on the internet.
    Would love to have him in my Fantasy Football League...he's a hack.

    Looking at the list, proves that the analysts and power rankings and all that are all about the name game

    The Browns were in the exact same position as us last year, both missing the playoffs by one game.


    The Browns have Donte Stallworth, Braylon Edwards, and Jamal Lewis.

    The Vikes have Bernard Berrian, Sydney Rice, and Adrian Peterson

    Both teams appear to be moving to the top of their division, or at least competing for the division crown.

    The big difference?
    The Browns have Derrek Anderson & Brady Quinn.
    The Vikes have Tavaris Jackson & Brooks Bollinger.

    Thats why we're ranked at 19 and they're at 8

    Much better analysis.
    However, I would probably add a little something about the fact that our defense is superior to that of the Browns, and that our offensive line is better...than the Browns.
    Your point is taken, however, regarding QB position comparisons.
