You might have seen it, you might have not, but today B/R's own Ryan Alfieri published a new article titled "2012 NFL Power Rankings Now That Free Agency is Over".

When I got closer to the end and saw that he had Philadelphia ranked No. 2 in front of San Francisco, Green Bay, Pittsburgh and New York I was overjoyed. Finally, someone who respects what this team has been able to accomplish in the offseason.
