    Grrrrr, how are the Steelers #3 if they don't know whether or not they'll be able to run with Willie Parker, they've lost key starters on both sids of the ball.

    They're not nearly the team they were last year, and last year, they didn't even win their division.

    They play in a really tough division and I really think they'll be lucky to go 8-8 without an every down back, their defense is a good shutdown defense, but they've lost a lot in their line, and they don't have the type of secondary that will pull alot of balls out of the air. Not every game can be 0-0.

    Well lets see why they are so high....hmmmm.....The won the super bowl last year!
    Just like texas is ranked high in college football, you have to give them credit at the begining of the season before they start to make a significant drop
    You republican whore!

    Then shouldn't they do the same for bad teams. How are the Eagles up so high after finishing so poorly, shouldn't you not credit them at the beginning of the year before they make a signifcant improvement?

    The Iggles were decimated by injuries last season, that's why they were so terrible.

    But, keep in mind that rankings of ANY kind are a popularity contest.
    The "experts" always rank their favorites high.
    They also praise the popular teams, and find flaws with the less popular ones.
    A good example was the Football Preview that The Sporting News came out with recently.
    At every position except linebacker, the Vikings graded out higher than the Packers.
    Yet they picked the Packers to place second (behind Chicago) in the NFCN while we were placed 3rd.
    SAY WHAT?!?!?!?


    Maybe I should put out a magazine......

    i would move the bills up a bit. now that we know that JP is the starter, i think they might have a chance to win 7 games instead of only 4.

    We're bringing purple back.

    I think the Vikings will do great this year.
    They can rank us at the bottom if they want and then we'll just make them look foolish when we are doing better than they predicted.
    So let them put us where they want and we'll prove them wrong.
    And as far as Losman goes I think he stinks to high heaven as a quaterback.
    The Pack, the Pack, gonna smack the Pack.

    'nother take on rankings:

    Oliver's NFL rankings: The 2006 season
    By Oliver Kimokeo
    SFI correspondent
    Posted Sep 5, 2006

    15 | 14 | CHICAGO BEARS (11-6): It seemed like NFL followers had a hard time of what to make of the Bears in 2005. Were they worthy playoff participants or a beneficiary of a dismal NFC North division? As usual, the defense is excellent and the offense is in need of improvement. But, what else is new?

    22 | 13 | MINNESOTA VIKINGS (9-7): The Vikings are the epitome of streaky. When they are on a winning streak, everything is going excellent and they have the NFL observers talking. When they are down for the count, the players can't escape their personal scandals and the team looks like an wounded organization in need of rehabilitation. So, the Vikings will have the best of times and the worst of times again in 2006 under new coach Brad Childress, and expect the bad to outweigh the good.

    26 | 30 | DETROIT LIONS (5-11): The Lions were never the luxury five-star restaurant of the NFL but they hardly ever were the fast-food establishment that they are today. They were usually the middle-of-the-road team looking to remain respectable. Now, they’re a team that doesn't know what steps to take up the NFL ladder, which has sent them fading in the other direction.

    31 | 23 | GREEN BAY PACKERS (4-12): These aren’t your older brother’s Packers any longer. As has been the case in the last 14 seasons, the Packers will flourish and perish at the feet of QB Brett Favre. Favre will create his usual spark which will keep the Packer faithful on their toes, but the spark won't be enough to create a winning season, and sometimes it will flame out in the form of mistakes and interceptions. While the Packers weren’t as bad as their final record last season, the potential is there for things to unravel quickly under first-year coach Mike McCarthy, who coached the worst offense in the league last year when he was offensive coordinator in San Francisco.
