Power rankings are usually always pointless to me but I glanced the top ten and they didn't look too bad at all.

Just a few things. Carolina is a little low as well as Tennessee and Pittsburgh is a little too high

This whole thing means less than nothing to me. We don't know anything about Cutler's progress, McNabb's injuries, Brandon Jacobs' running as the feature back, or how the rookies will fare. It's not right to do this now.

The Bengals shouldn't be behind the three NFC teams ahead of them, I personally think we should be higher than Baltimore but I can take the other side of the argument as well. I do like the top 5.

Given the questions at LB and in the secondary, the Bengals remain unproven in terms of stopping teams. These are very preliminary situations, so don't let it get to you. I'm shocked the Eagles are as high as they are with McNabb still not running on land.

My thing is with a worse LB core and secondary last year we beat the Saints at their place without our starting LT, C and RG then 2 of our 3 starting LB's that game will be backups again this year.

Well, any given Sunday... I think the thing about this is there are concerns about the amount of pressure the team can generate and their ability to stop teams on third down. No one can question the offense, but the defense's ability to control the game is in doubt. It's still early. I think the Bengals have a good chance to win the division, but I want to see them on the field before I make a final prediction.

I don't know if it is correct to say that the Colts losses this offseason are overrated. Losing 2 starting corner's is no joke, and also losing a good starting LB.

In the Cover 2 defense, CB's are interchangable and are often not the focus of the defensive success. In general, playing cover 2 CB is easier than playing in other defensive schemes.

I don't trust power rankings at all. I trust analysis and predictions done just after the draft even less.

"When you play the style of football they do, the margin for error is small. Everything will have to go right for the Bears to be back in the Super Bowl. That rarely happens."

What the hell is he talking about? We lost two Pro Bowlers on defense and our Quarterback became a walking turnover machine and we still made it to the Superbowl. How is that having everything go right in order to succeed? I don't mind the rank otherwise.

I think they were talking about things in general. The Bears try to generally control the clock and win with defense. That means they have to score points when they can. The team is not expected to score a ton, meaning that they have to capitalize on every opportunity to keep up their level of success.

IMO Cowboys, Cardinals, Giants, and Bengals are too high.

Titans are too low, they shouldn't be 29 despite having a bad off-season, anything could happen with Vince and gaining more experience. Everyone is pointing the finger of the team to slip and have at terrible season is the Titans because they believe there are so many signs, Pacman suspension, losing Drew Bennett, having a bad draft, Vince on the madden cover, however I think the Titans will prove the doubters, especially Vince like he did last season and through out his college career.

I'm actually fine for once with where he has the Bears but I still HATE Pete Prisco. I would take the few years in jail and subsequent lawsuit to beat him with a bat.

Convenient you leave out your team while including two division rivals.

The Bengals went 8-8 last year with our star LT missing 14 games, our anchor at Center missing 14 games, our franchise player coming off an ACL injury and TONS of bad luck while playing one of, if not the hardest schedule in the NFL and we were STILL one 39 yard field goal from making the playoffs (or one non-phantom roughing the passer call away). I'm actually impressed with the 8-8 given how many things went wrong last year.

Not to be a homer, but I don't see why the Jets moved down to the 9th spot after making the playoffs last year. The defense started to gel towards the end of the season and will be in their second year in the 3-4, the offensive line will continue to improve, and we actually will have a running back which will help us since we can move the ball on the ground and playaction will be more of a threat with Pennington. Based on talent we're not one of the better teams in the league, but last year the coaching staff got us to play hard and not commit many penalties. We were basically in every game except the Jax game, and the playoff game after the backwards past. Although our schedule will be harder and I'm not sure we'll make the playoffs, I see no reason for us to be the 16th team in the league, especially behind teams like the Cardinals and Giants. That said, the two aforementioned teams are a bit high, and I think the Falcons, 49ers, Panthers, and Titans are too low.

That Smith roughing the passer call cost Cincy the Bucs game and was pretty questionable as well. The big thing next year is consistency, will they be able to play well week in and week out. Last year they'd win a bunch and then lose a bunch, for stretches of 3 or 4 games. If Perry steps in and does well in Henry's place that should be important, and I think Brooks will really improve and help out the defense a ton. In a few years I think he's going to be something special.

I was definately impressed with them last year and I agree, they are rated lower than they should be.
