    He is right about the Dolphins but somehow still ranks them better then the Vikes?

    Not too much impressive.
    It looks like he reversed the draft order from this year and switched a couple of teams around.

    Interesting find.

    Even if it don't mean anything now, it gives us something to get worked up about.

    I think it's a fair ranking around there based on our young team, and our track record from last year. Even if we were placed lover we really can't complain. We have a team this year that needs to prove itself.

    As a fan I of course expects us to do that, and improve that ranking over the season.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    I LOVE that he ranks THREE AFC teams ahead of the Putzies...I just hope that it holds true!

    And that the Vikes surprise more than a few so-called experts!

    I am definitely not all that surprised by our ranking. I mean I could see us anywhere from 17-27 really, so this is not all that big of a deal. I do think that have the Patriots anywhere other than 1 or 2 is smoking crack though. I also think that a lot of teams in the NFC seem to be getting better, which hurts our chances. The 49ers, Rams and Cardinals have all improved out West and the Lions in our own division. The Falcons could make some noise with the new offense as well.
    I think we have gotten better as well, but hell I would not be surprised if we finished 11-5 or 5-11 ... makes things kind of exciting.

    Not after Brady finally falls to the bad karma of Belly putting him on the injured list EVERY WEEK for the past several years!

    The Viking ranking fits given last year's offensive performance.
    With an experienced QB running our off. (not BJ) and a quality WR I think you would see the ranking much higher.
    It's the offence and lack of pass rush that is giving the prognosticators bad vibes about us. No where to go but up is the way I look at it.

    well i hope james coming back from his injury produces the numbers he did in cllege when he came back.

    with that being said 25 is what we were at the end of the season i think we have added some help and should be a little higher up, but we will have to wait and see

    Thanks josdin00
