Default 4th Annual NFLDC Preseason Rankings: #18

I messaged nobodyinparticular about making this and this was his answer;

"I'm going out of town in a few hours and I won't have internet access for well over 3 weeks. The next time I know I'll have access to the internet is the first of September.

Since you've shown such interest in the Power Rankings polls, I was wondering if you would like to put them up. If so, that would be great, but if not then we'll forever be stuck at #19.

Have a great day. I'll catch you later."

So, I hope I make him proud.

I'll go with the Titans. That offense is a big mystery right now and I'm not sold the defense will be able to keep them in games again.

I vote for Bills, but the Texans were tempting. We seem to have moved out of the bad and below average teams into the mediocre and maybe good teams.

Just wondering but why are people voting for the bills over teams like Tennessee and Houston? The Bills finally have a big guy who can bring down a jump ball to open things up for their small speedsters, they have a top 10 oline and running attack lead by a top 15 back and a great compliment to him in Fred Jackson. With Stroud there to solidify their interior run defense and health the D should again become top 15 and I just don't see them doing any worse than the 8-8 they were last season, despite being the most injured team in the NFL.

I don't think the defense is gonna be as good as you're making it seem. I've voted for them and the Titans in the past few polls actually. Their QB situation is not very envious. Trent Edwards is talented, but he's still half a rookie. James Hardy isn't gonna come in and have an impact right away, so their passing game won't be great. I like the running game, but that's about it on that side of the ball.

The secondary is still very young, and needs development. Who's starting opposite McGee (who isn't that great either)? Is Ko starting at FS? What's the pass-rush gonna be like?

They do have a very good offensive line and they had the fifth best running game in the league last year. With a D as good as they have I think that puts them past the Bills and Texans.

I honestly don't think their defense is all that great. I'm not too fond of the secondary, mainly the CB's.

Titans have an old defense, a bad run game, a QB who is overrated and can't throw to save his life, and zero talented recievers. /exaggeration
but still Carolina and Buffalo and Houston are all better. Carolina has firepower and an aging but solid D, Buffalo has a good defense, a great running back, some WR talent, and a semi decent QB. Houston has a better defense then they get credit for and has a formidable offense, plus they won 8 games in the AFC North, which is by far the toughest conference in the NFL.

Like I have said in the past 2-3 of these threads, the Titans are not very good. There is VY, White and Crumpler, for offensive threats. And their defense is not very good. They should have been on the list several spots ago.

I like the running game, but that's about it on that side of the ball.

The secondary is still very young, and needs development. Who's starting opposite McGee (who isn't that great either)? Is Ko starting at FS? What's the pass-rush gonna be like?
Just wondering how much of Trent Edwards you watched last season? I know he was a rookie but he was one of the most impressive rookie QBs I've seen. He made quick decisions, moved very well in the pocket to buy time and was very careful and accurate with the ball. I have a lot of confidence in him succeeding, especially if Turk opens the passing game up a little more. Plus you can't ignore what a quality oline and running game can do for a young QB.

Hardy doesn't even need to be good to have a big impact on the passing attack. The simple fact that he's over 5' and can jump changes the whole dynamic of that passing game, playing buffalo you used to never have to worry about someone actually coming down with a jumpball, now teams do, that'll be huge in terms of changing the spacing for the other receivers, which is why I expect Hardy to have very tame numbers outside the redzone, but for Evans to explode.

You know who started in their secondary last year? A converted WR, Wilson, and 23 pound Jabari Greer. Having Ko back to start next to Whitner and having a corner who isn't thinner than my left leg will mean a significant upgrade. Add to that the increased depth due to so many different guys getting PT due to injuries and performing, again 8-8 with the most season ending injuries and games missed by starters, the D should be around middle of the pack.

The Pass rush is still in need of a stud, but they were productive last season and McCargo should have even more of impact as a pass rusher now that Stroud's there to eat up double teams. It's not as good as my gmen, but it's solid and the bills have a bunch of high motor guys to rotate and keep people fresh.

Plus they should be able to blitz their LBs more unless they get murdered by injuries again.

So, dare I ask, what logic exactly dictates the Texans are a better team than the Titans? Or the Bills for that matter? Is this the "NFLDC Preseason on paper rankings" or something? The Titans had a top OL, a good run game and a top 5 defense last year. Why do they deserve to be put behind a team that has barely beaten them in their franchise history? Is it really because they're not flashy enough? I'm so glad they actually play the games.
