The New York Giants have been crowned the kings of the 2011 NFL calendar year.
But the greatest thing about sports is that success has to be repeatedly earned. Living in the past doesn't get you anywhere but fired in the NFL. The Giants may have rings from last year, but that doesn't mean that they have an advantage entering this year. In fact, it normally works the other way.
This year plenty of teams are capable of winning the Super Bowl after an intriguing draft and active free-agent market. Some teams have progressed, while others have regressed.
It's not really fair to label teams good or bad as each team has its strengths and weaknesses. Admittedly, some teams have a lot more strengths than others, while some have weaknesses that are fatal regardless of what other strengths they boast.
For that reason, I've decided to dig deeper with my power rankings and rank each of the 64 units in the league.
Who has the best offense? Who has the best defense? Whose offense is worth more than its defense? Who has the best balance between the two?
It's time to find out!
