Here are my power rankings.
They are just the best team that's ever played football. With Tom Brady back they are unstoppable.
They improved their offense in the offseason. It doesn't matter that they lost Brian Dawkins they are the best team in the NFC.
They are so amazing. Probably even better than last year, but the Patriots are just a little better.
What a great team. No one can stop their running game and their defense is amazing.
This team is just amazing. No one cares that they lost their head coach, off. coordinator, and def. coordinator.
The Cowboys are America's team. They are in the NFC East which makes them an amazing team.
What can I say they got Albert Haynesworth and they are in the NFC East, which is the best division in football.
LaDainian Tomlinson is the best running back to ever play the game and Shawne Merriman is God.
Ok I'm going to stop there. This was a complete and total joke.
I've made two serious power rankings and every one of the teams I listed above, especially the Eagles, bit my head off.
I had one guy pissed because the Patriots were No. 5 and not No. 2. Another guy was mad because the Eagles were 10.
Oh and the nerve of me putting the Cowboys or Redskins in the bottom half of the league. Their in the NFC East that makes them playoff contenders.
All this article was supposed to do is make you think about what power rankings are about. If you want the cookie cutter power ranking, well there you go. There is a power ranking with absolutely no thought involved.
I can tell you right now that this cookie cutter power ranking will be wrong. The past couple of years there have been teams that topped the power rankings that weren't expected to.
Honestly, I would like to know what fun is it to have this typical ranking? Is this the way you want it to be?
I mean I can go into probably 30 reasons for each team as to why they could be a good team this year... and that's all anyone does whenever I put up a power ranking. They complain that their team isn't higher because of reasons a, b, and c.
So please think next time before you post a 500 word essay on why your team deserves to be in the top five on someone else's power rankings.
