Default Texans 16th on ESPN's Preseason Power Rankings

For whatever that's worth.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/powerr...on=2009&week=0

I'm glad people are getting excited about our upcoming season, I hope we just don't have a start of the season equivalent to the Raider's game last year (or to well, the start of last season) where they seemed to have been under the impression that they had proved something. Opinions?

This is about right where we should be, though I don't think the Bears and Vikings are that much better than us.

Meh, I might look at power rankings after the 1st quarter of the season.

Yes, but we have to beat the University of Houston to do so and they have a power back.

The 16 spot is good.....back to back 8-8 seasons is, well average/middle of the pack and that's where they got us. Hopefully after the 1st quarter we'll have moved up though. (we better have if we want any shot in hell of reaching the playoffs.....3 or our first 4 games are at home.)

sh!t I didn't realize that was a factor for getting voted into the playoffs. we need someone to really get out there and drum up some sympathy for us!

college football is a joke until that nonsense get eliminated.

Default Re: Texans 16th on ESPN's Preseason Power Rankings

I really enjoy power rankings. I kind of wish we were lower so I could watch our rise.

I kind of have a small problem with San Diego being ranked as high simply because they play in a bad division. They struggled themselves being 8-8 in a piss poor division. Says something about them. I say overrated. Turner is killing the team.

I always enjoy the annual preseason Power Ranking threads around here.

I love the people who get bent out of shape, violently disagreeing with our ranking. "There's no way in hell we're 18th!" LOL.

It really makes no difference to be quite honest. There's 3 or 4 really good teams, and everybody else is behind them.

The only power ranking that matters is that the Steelers are Super Bowl Champions.

Thats the one I want.

AFC West is going to be topsy-turvy this year. Last year the Chargers made a late season run and had to have Denver fold, which they did, and they backdoored into the playoffs. I predict the team folds this year, might not have a terrible record but Turner is going to lose the team. Still can't believe that guy has managed to get multiple coaching gigs.

It should be a "sticky" thread: "Hey, Power Rankings don't mean crap!"

Every person required to read it, asked to refrain from going mental on what some website has us ranked at.

It's like two kids arguing over the baseball card stats of their favorite player.

"My guys better!"

"No he's not!"

"YES HE IS!"

"NO HE'S NOT!"

LOL.

The Saints are one of the NFL's "oldest" franchises? The Saints were an expansion team founded in 1967. ESPN should be leaders and knowledgeable about the NFL but they put this kind of drivel out there and later they probably have lots of marketing meetings about how they can't figure out why they aren't doing so well. I have a hint. Don't publish crap.
