    Dang, I didn't know anybody had the Bills ranked in the top 5 ! This opener
    may be even tougher than I've expected.

    They sure are putting alot of trust in what is basically a rookie QB. But I guess with their D and McGahee, Losman doesnt have to do much. I really hope the line does better this year so the media will stop using that as an excuse.

    how many of these pre-season power ratings turn out to be true? i wouldn't put much stock in buffalo being top 5. i mean look at the jags at 13 and cardinals at 15, when we're 22. does that seem right to you?

    Here's another...

    But yeah, they're pretty much useless. I think foxsports had Houston in the top 10 at one point last year.

    If the rankings are based on last years record plus off season improvements only, then I think we should at least be higher than the jags, cards, saints, rams and broncos. If they throw in schedule and division then maybe that changes things because I have not looked at all the schedules, but I think we should be better than the jags for sure. We get no respect.

    that article says we'll backslide slightly due to having the same O-line, and faster linebackers.

    I have no clue as to why that guy thinks the identical O-line would play any worse... if anything they should stay the same or slightly improve.

    For some reason he thinks our key to success would be slower linebackers? How does one get to be a sportswriter anyway?

    :crazy:

    Is that the best they can come up with for Losman, is that he's mobile?? Nothing about his arm strength, accuracy, decision making, poise in the pocket, or reading the defense?

    I don't know about the browns being last, cause they might have a decent team this year

    These power rankings look almost the same every year.

    Sweet!

    We're ahead of the 49ers. I was worried about that one.

    Hmmm..

    Look at #5...

    Pretty good if you ask me.

    I think the Texans should be a bit higher though.

    This guy is a crackpot.
    I don't necessarily disagree with his texans spot. There is alot to prove this season.

    But at one point he moves one team down 4 spots citing the loss of offensive players and a questionable running game. Then moves one team up 7 spots, citing the loss of offensive players and a questionable running game.

    I think 14-15 is about right. Our O-line cant get any worse than it was last year and can only get better. The speed on D will cause more turnovers. Besides, Foremen and Sharper were liabilities in coverage anyways.

    I think the Texans should be right around #20.

    LOL the Jags are ranked way, way, way too high. Last year was a flukey season and they will return to their 6-10 ways this year.

    The Bills are a strong team but not strong enough to be ranked #5. There is no way in hell they should be ranked above Pittsburgh.

    The Patriots are ranked #1, fine it must be out of respect (superbowl) because they lost a lot of players and key coaches. Fair enough. But I think that Pittsburgh should be given similar respect coming off a 15-1 season.

    Raiders are too high at #18.

    Packers should be higher than 24th.

    i find it offensive that you that tampa will be the worst team in the league.....cadillac williams, michael clayton, and a beast like defense......20ish maybe, but i will bet my soul that they dont fare worse than miami or tennessee or san francisco...be realistic now
