    [size=14pt]Defending Super Bowl champions top ranking of all 32 teams[/size]

    I agree on where most of the teams are ranked on this list.
    The Vikings at number 11 seems very right (although, on my list their in the top 10)


    11.
    Minnesota Vikings
    10-6, first in NFC North, lost in wild-card playoffs


    If Brett Favre winds up on this roster, this team could move up a few spots in the final preseason rankings. The Vikings won the division title without Favre, and the addition of Percy Harvin brings a playmaker to an offense in which no opposing defense worries about anything aside from Adrian Peterson. The Vikings defense will continue to stop the run and get after quarterbacks.

    Interesting.
    This one Looks pretty on to me.
    The latest SI one had us down at 15 with the Bears at 4 (Cutler) and the Pack just ahead of us at 14.
    I'm far from convinced that Cutler will enjoy the same level of success throwing to his 2 rookies and Hester than he did in DEN with all their weapons!
    Kind of silly that they haven't bothered to add Toomer or Harrison or Holt...an established vet might help the rooks tremendously!

    Seriously, The fricken falcons look like contenders as long as Ryan doesn't go into a sophmore slump and the defense doesn't take a big step back with all the young starters there.
    Tony G flat out gets it done!!
    Adding him to White, Jenkins, Norwood, Turner and now Ward too is one hell of a pile of offensive options!
    Peria Jerry (if healthy) will improve their line play but I thought they needed a LB or two...?

    The Giants offseason was pretty ridiculous too!
    THey added a bunch of defensive talent to an already tough front.
    Got two good prospects at WR in Nicks who could be their new Mr. Clutch, and Ramses Barden, a guy big enough to get physical and out leap most DBs in the redzone.

    I'm not really liking what Philly added either.
    Talk about Weapons!!?!?!??!!!!
    Maclin and DJack and Curtis?
    That's some speedy reciever core there!
    Also upgraded the OL and added potentially a better backup to Westbrook also.
    We know their defense comes to attack.


    Good chance the Cards luck runs out.
    Lots of questions there, lost some good players, etc.
    Plus, losing superbowl teams have had a real rough go of it lately.

    Personally, with my extra shady, off-season Purple Goggles on, I like the Vikes chances with or without you know who!
    We added a serious playmaking threat in Harvin, very likely upgraded out OL at C and RT.
    And are getting a bunch of good players back on defense!
    Sage > Gus cuz he's more mobile.
    Tarvaris has shown improvement...if that continues, the addition of Harvin and Phil added to Berrian and Shank's development, could make this team more of an offensive force than many realize!
    Just a few more first down conversions, and big passes to back off the defenses, could set us up for more carries for AP and CT and keep our defense fresh and in attack mode!!!
    BAAAAAHWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    As prophet so eloquently put it last year,
    Get the fuck out of the way.
    The Vikings are here to shove that damned pigskin down your throat, pull it out of your ass, then shove it down your throat again.
    ;D
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Ya' got me jacked up for some Viking football mountainviking, I agree we are gonna be improved with the passing game. Sustain more drives, Score more touchdowns, and hold the ball longer, keeping the defense fresh for fourth quarter Domination. Purple Shade's are locked, and loaded. 8)

    Why are the eagles so high?

    they do not deserve to be 3rd.

    The Eagles do deserve to be #3... unless they loose their D-coordinator for an extended period of time... they have upgraded that offense emensely...

    atleast we're not #1 or picked to win the super bowl...

    And they have downgraded their defense immensely.

    They barely made it into the playoffs last season.

    Not sure about the #3 rating, but who cares... it's all based off an NFL season that doesn't matter anymore.

    11th without LD.
    Would only move up a couple of spots with him.
    Hmmmmmmm, makes one wonder now doesn't it.


    Course, when you consider that he has the Colts (Manning lost some coaches) and Giants (Eli isn't any good without a WR that can catch everything thrown to him) that high on wonders about his ranking of the Vikes.

    Still, all in all a fun read.
