  • Finally-denver Gets Respect

    Say saw the post draft power rankings from CBS sportslines Prisco. Now I Don't usually agree with his rankings, but I found these really good with only a few disagreements

    http://www.cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10172376

    1 Colts · Trends 1

    As long as Manning is throwing to those receivers, they are still the team to beat. The losses they've suffered are overrated.

    2 Patriots · Trends 2

    I love all the moves on offense, but have they really helped the defense all that much? That was the trouble spot in the loss to the Colts.

    3 Chargers · Trends 3

    This is a strong team that will be there in the end. But the big changes on the coaching staff could be felt. Chemistry is an issue.

    4 Broncos · Trends 8

    The big issue for the Broncos is what kind of jump Jay Cutler makes in his second season. If he makes a big one, they could be a deep playoff team.

    5 Bears · Trends 5

    When you play the style of football they do, the margin for error is small. Everything will have to go right for the Bears to be back in the Super Bowl. That rarely happens.

    6 Ravens · Trends 4

    We know the defense will be good, and McGahee will help the offense, but how much does Steve McNair have left?

    7 Saints · Trends 6
    They will again be explosive on offense, but for this team to get to the Super Bowl the defense has to be better. They've made some decent additions, but are they enough?

    8 Eagles · Trends 7

    If Donovan McNabb returns healthy with no problems, they are the team to beat in the NFC East. If not, they could be in for a long season.

    9 Cowboys · Trends 13

    Will the real Tony Romo step up? Is he the Romo who played lights out after taking over as starter or is he the Romo who struggled down the stretch?

    10 Bengals · Trends 9

    Have they done enough to improve their defense? With Carson Palmer another year removed from knee surgery, the offense should be even better.

    11 Steelers · Trends 10

    New coach Mike Tomlin inherits a good team, and you know they will play a tough brand of football, but can they shake off the 2006 Super hangover?

    12 Jaguars · Trends 11

    It's all on quarterback Byron Leftwich. If he's good, they can be a deep playoff team. If not, they'll struggle. The defense will be suffocating.

    13 Cardinals · Trends 17

    They've added a lot of good football players to a team that had talent to begin with. They just might be the best team in the NFC West.

    14 Giants · Trends 14

    It's all on Eli Manning. Either he goes to the next level or the Giants won't be in the playoffs again. Brandon Jacobs has to be good, too.

    15 Seahawks · Trends 12

    Their division is much tougher now, which will make it a lot tougher to get to the playoffs. They must have a healthy Matt Hasselbeck. It doesn't help that Shaun Alexander's foot is still problem.

    16 Jets · Trends 15

    They added two nice defensive pieces (Darrelle Revis and David Harris) in the draft and Thomas Jones will help the running game. This team might still be a year away from really being playoff-ready.

    17 Rams · Trends 20

    The key will be whether the defense improves. The addition of Adam Carriker will help. They have to stop the run better.

    18 Falcons · Trends 21

    New coach Bob Petrino has to make Mike Vick a better passer. If he does, and that's a huge if, they could be back in the playoffs.

    19 49ers · Trends 25

    They've made some nice moves in the offseason and could be a 9-7 team. I think this is a team that will really take off in 2008.

    20 Bills · Trends 22

    They made some strange moves this offseason, getting rid of some key players. But if J.P. Losman improves, they will improve as well.

    21 Panthers · Trends 16

    This seems like a team going in the wrong direction. If Jake Delhomme struggles early, David Carr will be in the lineup quickly.

    22 Packers · Trends 23

    There is some good, young talent on this team. But are they ready to take the next step as Brett Favre holds on for dear life?

    23 Vikings · Trends 26

    It's all about the quarterback here. Is Tarvaris Jackson ready to take over as the starter like Brad Childress think he is?

    24 Dolphins · Trends 24

    The million-dollar question remains who will be the quarterback. Until that is settled, this team has the look of a six-victory group.

    25 Buccaneers · Trends 28

    They've added some good football players, but now comes the tough part: Do the old guys hold on? Plus, they have to settle on a quarterback, and it should be Chris Simms.

    26 Chiefs · Trends 18

    Yet another team that has quarterback issues. Who will it be? Not only that, but the defense isn't exactly capable of carrying the team until the quarterback is settled.

    27 Lions · Trends 30

    Can Jon Kitna have another big year throwing the football? If he does, they will surprise a lot of teams and could be a .500 team. If not, Drew Stanton is waiting.

    28 Redskins · Trends 29

    They haven't done a lot to make this team better -- surprise, surprise, they didn't spend much -- and that will put a lot of pressure on Jason Campbell, now the full-time starter. Bill Cowher in 2008?

    29 Titans · Trends 19

    Vince Young played well, but not nearly as well as the hype. He may be forced to do even more, however, because this team hasn't made a lot of improvements and lost some key people.

    30 Texans · Trends 27

    Matt Schaub takes over as quarterback and now he will find out what David Carr learned: It's hard to win without more than one weapon.

    31 Raiders · Trends 32

    The defense could be suffocating, which means if JaMarcus Russell is what everyone thinks he can be, this can possibly be a .500 team.

    32 Browns · Trends 31

    There is some young talent on the team, but they are still a long ways away from competing for a playoff spot. Throw Brady Quinn in there and chalk it up as a learning year.





    I like Denver at 4, I think thats a solid and fair place to have them

    I also like how he shows the AFC dominance


    The only things I'd do different is:
    Have Baltimore above Chicago (Baltiomres D is better, a better RB, and there QB is proven)
    the 49ers above the falcons.
    Carolina above both falcons and Bills
    NE above Ind
    And drop arizona down to the 19 range next to the 49ers. They've been the HOT pick for the last 3 years. I geuss if you never jump off, your bound to be right at some point
    Thanks Broncos for bringing back our roided up punter .

    Browns are last.
    I bet Charlie boy is having a fit over that.

    But nice to see us at 4.
    All AFC teams at the top.

      Prisco is dumb. We're not that good. There's too many variables.


      RIP D-Will and Nash

              Yes, Prisco is dumb. Even if he had the Chiefs #1 I would still say he is dumb. Nothing but **** comes out of his mouth. Prisco is a prick.

              It's a good thing Jay Cutler was a proven winner in college. Oh wait, nevermind.

                I dont get why everyone is so concerned with the respect we get from various media sources.

                I mean, who cares what any of these guys think?

                  He must be "blinded by hate", huh?

                      If Prisco had the Chiefs as #1, I would have considered him worse than a moron.

                      More like a mental vegetable.

                          Do you guys really think we're better than the Saints? Or the Bears. We could be, but atm...

                          We're not.

                              Spring or Fall, what's it matter when they spout their all knowing knowledge?

                              It doesnt change anything on the field.


                              And OH YES we ARE better than the Bears!!!
