Default 2010 NFL Power Ranking

OTAs are over; I am in anticipation overload. The Jets will be the first team in camp Saturday July 17, 2010. That is four weeks away...

We are seven weeks away from the 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. It is on Sunday, Aug. 8, 2010. Cincinnati Bengals will face the Dallas Cowboys. AWESOME!

Well without any further delay...



32. Rams: Sam Bradford to start as a rookie behind O-line in shambles soon
31. Bills: Rebuilding without franchise QB
30. Browns: Jake Delhomme QB in waiting for Colt McCoy
29. Panthers: Matt Moore QB in waiting for Jimmy Clausen
28. Buccaneers: Josh Freeman still way too raw
27. Jaguars: David Garrard and Jack Del Rio in the hot seat
26. Lions: Renovation almost complete, maybe next season
25. Seahawks: Pete Carroll could be a top five recruiter in the draft next season
24. Cardinals: So this is what a gutted Super Bowl team looks like
23. Redskins: Shanahan to prove he was not product of roster and staff?
22. Chiefs: Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel join Cassel for Patriots reunion
21. 49ers: To lead a division tied to league’s whipping post
20. Raiders: Big John Henderson could revive from hibernation
19. Titans: Pacman Jones goes to the Bengals while Vince Young makes it rain
18. Eagles: Let's trade McNabb and start Kevin Kolb. Brilliant! NOT...
17. Bears: Jay Cutler meet Julius Peppers and Mike Martz
16. Giants: 21 to 16 TD to INT ratio for Eli Manning is unimpressive
15. Texans: Loss of Robinson and suspension of DROY is gonna hurt with hard schedule
14. Dolphins: Chad Henne meet Brandon Marshall
13. Falcons: Dunta Robinson ought to help 28th ranked pass defense of 2009
12. Bengals: The 2009 22nd ranked scoring offense exposed in the playoffs
11. Broncos: Locker contagion’s replaced with sound of angels singing
10. Chargers: Eleven-game winning streak came to a halt in the playoffs
9. Jets: Quarterback's sophomore slump could slow the Jets down
8. Patriots: Tom Brady and company back in the hunt for another Ring
7. Ravens: Joe Flacco meet WR Anquan Boldin
6. Packers: Top 10 offense and top five defense last season
5. Cowboys: Team is building on playoff win with Dez Bryant
4. Vikings: Brett Favre is like a bottle of wine…
3. Steelers: Is the No. 1 2008 pass defense that took Steelers to Super Bowl back?

2. Colts: AFC Champs until dethroned
1. Saints: Saints also swept the AFC East last season, and they are back


1. AFC North
2. AFC East
3. NFC North
4. AFC West
5. NFC EAST
6. AFC South
7. NFC South
8. NFC West

Default Re: 2010 NFL Power Ranking

Pittsburgh #3? Was this written by a Steelers fan?

I'm not much on rankings top to bottom, in general. But, I think the Cards, Eagles, Texans, and Chargers are better than suggested here. While the Pack, Broncos, and Steelers are over ranked.

The AFC West and NFC North are better than NFC East and AFC South? Really?

Yup the divisional rankings tell you all you need to know about this opinion.

So which division has been the best the past 2 seasons combined?

Well, that all depends on what categories you use to distinguish what makes a division the best.

If it is wins, then your answer is the AFC South.

If its the best offense and defense combined category,the NFC East was best.

If it is a combination of the two factors, well then it's the NFC South.

Best Division in the NFL
So we know where the divisions have ranked in the past two seasons, but just as they have not always been that way, they will not remain that way, and to assume so is ludicrous.

This is not a 2009 Power ranking of where the divisions will stand when it is all said and done but rather a 2010.

NFC East has the Eagles trading Donovan McNabb to the Redkins who have a new system to contend with executing this season with an overrated coach who may have well been nothing more than the product of his coaching staff and players like Clinton Portis, Brandon Marshall and John Elway etc. Giants were 8-0 last season, Eli has proven to be mediocre. NFC East takes a drop and how this season.

AFC South: Colts can't carry entire division to the top. How many years have I come to this board before the season starts and rave about how spectacular the Texans are going to be this season? Well?

We can't take for granted that the Texans had the division tied to the whipping post of the league to jack their stats up with last season in the NFC West.

Thing is the Texans took a step back defensively this season. That is the last thing, last seasons 17th ranked scoring defense needed; especially with this schedule.

Jaguars stink, Vince Young is a joke. These two teams are sending the AFC South plummeting this season, and where that drop stops depends on how the head to head goes between the AFC Soth and AFC West. I like the West this season.

Texans are not an elite team, Vikings and Packers are elite teams in this league. Bear's and Lions are on the rise and with them so too is the NFC North.

So the AFC West and NFC North have not been as good as the AFC South or NFC West. But it's ludicrous to assume they won't be in 2010?

Gotcha.

Oh, and of course playing 4 games without BC will hurt us as well. This season will be tough! But with a better running game, better kicking (hopefully) and a defense that is about on par with last season, we should be in a good spot in this years playoff hunt.

LOL, we didn't have a #1 CB last season......with Dunta on the roster.


Seriously, why do people think the loss of Dunta is going to hurt the Texans? Did y'all even watch Dunta play last season, because I did....and he sucked. He had no closing speed, got beat deep, and when he wasn't getting beat deep, is was because he was holding on for dear life and picking up PI penalties.

I bet Kareem Jackson comes in here and plays better than Dunta "I can't believe the Falcons actually gave me that contract" Robinson.

There's other reasons that you can list on why the Texans won't be a elite team or not make the playoffs this year. I actually think the loss of Dunta Robinson will help Houston......mainly because he was terrible last year. Glover Quin was much better.

Just because National media has been wrong the last couple years that the Texans would make playoffs doesn't mean that it won't happen this year. The idea that "well, since we thought it last year and it didn't happen, it's not gonna happen this year either" is garbage.

Same thing with Texans fans and DTs. Just because our last couple first round DT picks haven't panned out, should we completely stop drafting for DT in early rounds, even when it continues to be a weakness? No! Just because the past says otherwise, it doesn't mean the future is going to be the same, especially in sports.

As far as stepping back defensively, there are two factors that you bring up: The "loss" of Dunta Robinson and the suspension of Brian Cushing.

As far as Dunta is concerned, he was average. At best. Kareem Jackson will hopefully come in and play nicely, and Brice McCain was a pleasant surprise last year. At times, I wished he was starting instead of Dunta. It's an easy line for columnists to throw out that the Texans lost DR, so that makes their secondary weaker, but it's not as true as they would like to believe. Glover Quin will also hopefully continue in his solid play, he was our best corner last year.

Regarding Brian Cushing, linebacker has to be one of our deepest positions, I'm not too worried about it. He will definitely be missed, but we are fairly strong at LB.

Bear's and Lions are on the rise and with them so too is the NFC North.
The Bears and Lions are on the rise? How so? If you mean the Lions will win a game or 3 this year, you are correct. The Bears? By your "too many years the Texans have under achieved" logic, the Bears aren't on the rise either. The Texans make the playoffs in the NFC North last year. If the Jags and the Titans are jokes, the Bears and the Lions are their punch lines.

NIce post Mike! I think too many people are getting hyped up over Chicago. they may be better than last year, but Cutler is going to get killed in Martz offense, and we will hear whining like never before from him.

And Detroit will be better than last year, but how much is that saying?
