Whitaker's (Top 5) NFL Power Rankings
1. New York Giants - 12-4 in '08 -
I don't care they don't have Plaxico Burress anymore, this defense is just beyond scary. New Giants Michael Boley & Rocky Bernard, with Osi Umenyiora coming back healthy, this is scariest defense I've seen since the 2000 Ravens. Unlike those Ravens they have a quarterback to make the tough throws just in case. This team is built around running the football, and shutting your offense down. Until somebody gets hurt, or some big trade happens elsewhere, the New York Football Giants have my top spot.
