As it stands as of this writing, we are three days away from the preseason, a month away from the regular season and training camps have been taking place for a little more than a week.
Like any other NFL preseason, there's due to be injuries/holdouts that change the outcome of the season and the chances of NFL teams, but seeing as it's early August, it's not too early to be power ranking the top teams in the NFL heading into 2011.
Due to the ever-constant parity in the NFL, there are many favorites heading into 2011.
On the NFC side, will the Green Bay Packers repeat as Super Bowl champions with a young nucleus led by QB Aaron Rodgers, who happens to be in his prime? Will the Philadelphia Eagles, with their "dream team," prove to be the cream of the crop in the NFC? Or will a team from under the radar, such as the NFC regular-season champion Atlanta Falcons be the team to beat heading into the season?
On the AFC side, you have the constantly reloading Jets and Patriots battling for supremacy in not only the division, but the conference itself. Ditto goes for the Ravens and Steelers.
So, just who are the Top 10 teams in the NFL come kickoff on Sept. 8?
