Now that we are past the midway point in the 2012 NFL season, some teams have begun planning for 2013, while others are buying up rooms in New Orleans for February. And I am not talking about Mardi Gras.
There are surprises: The coach-less Saints starting 0-4 before rebounding (ask the Falcons), or Andrew Luck leading the Colts back to the top of the AFC. We have also seen season-ending injuries to big names like Ray Lewis, Jon Beason, Sean Lee, Brian Cushing, Darrelle Revis, Carl Nicks and Brian Orakpo.
The one area of the NFL yet to be examined: the cheerleaders. Sure, we have seen some of the sexiest cheerleaders in action, but until now, have not ranked them.
So here are the 2012 NFL cheerleader power rankings. Enjoy.
They might be having a great 2012 season, but when you don't have cheerleaders, the bottom of the pack is where you belong.
Two words, Cleveland: Brandon Weeden. Things will change soon enough. I promise.
The fans in Detroit might not be happy about their football team, but at least they can be happy they help re-elected the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama.
I am always a big fan of NFL teams playing when the world thinks you shouldn't. Hurricane Sandy can't slow down football in New York. Never.
All I remember from the Seattle game was that someone caught the football. I saw the rest of the play as the officials did, blurry and unclear.
This is the last NFL team without a cheerleading team. I promise.
Oh, those sneaky Dirty Birds. They have somehow managed to find a way to lead the NFL in being awesome. Too bad I don't see it that way.
At one point, in my dreams, this was a scenario and I had to find a way out. Why did I ever wake up?
When the Buffalo Bills finally sign an elite QB, watch out. That is going to be a powerful offense that will be tough to stop.
I am not worried about Cam Newton anymore. Just give me a pair of binoculars and point me towards the Topcats.
Who would have thought that Adrian Peterson would be leading the league in rushing this season following an ACL injury that sidelined him for most of last season?
The Tennessee Titans are 3-6, but have been outscored by a ridiculous 126 points. When they lose, they do it big.
Poor Jacksonville. No one in the state of Florida even knows they have another football team in J-town.
Take away Ray Lewis from the hard-hitting Baltimore defense, and what do you get? A team still sitting pretty near the top of the AFC.
It isn't too late for the Bengals to make a playoff run. I would just rather take a look at those beautiful Ben-Gals instead.
The Kansas City Chiefs have only led for one second this season, when they beat the Saints in overtime.
Can you imagine how bad the Eagles would be without a running QB? Their offensive line is absolutely terrible.
At what point did the Rams start winning games? I haven't heard from them since 2004.
Even in London, the Patriots are one of the best teams in the NFL. And why wouldn't they be? They have the top-ranked offense.
Yes, the Jets are about as mediocre as they come but they have Tim Tebow, so things can't be that bad in New York.
The crowds are rougher than a group of meatheads after an MMA fight, but Oakland is still one of the coolest places to watch a NFL game. Fact.
Who would have imagined the Colts would be in contention under first-year QB Andrew Luck? Not me; that's truth.
If you can't make it to Miami, you need to visit Tampa Bay at least. The women are almost as hot and the food is just as good.
In Arizona, they seem to have an understanding with someone above that only beautiful women belong in AZ.
Being from New Orleans, I can't help but put the Saintsations in the top 10. Not because I am bias, but because I know first hand what this team has to offer.
No matter how I rate them, the Washington Redskins cheerleaders are always one of the hottest. Always.
Did you really think the Broncos wouldn't be a good team with Peyton Manning at the helm?
After traveling to San Diego two years ago, I have yet to come across a place I would rather live. Not even in Hawaii.
When you visit California, try not to break your neck when passing through San Francisco. The women are as beautiful as the weather.
The Dallas Cowboys aren't the only team in Texas. They aren't even the best anymore.
It is simply not fair that the Miami Dolphins have cheerleaders. Both teams have trouble concentrating with these ladies on the sidelines.
I love how everything is bigger in Texas. Everything!
