    NY Giants - "They are a young team and need to improve in some areas, but why can't they repeat?"


    Answer - Because Gronk's ankle is healthy now.

    I should have stopped right there. The stupidity of his arguments for #1-4 finally made me stop after the Patriots. It just got to be too much like reading a Jets board.

    Pats- 27-5 over last two seasons, and the most consistent team in the NFL; also possibly the best team ever at meeting high expectations. Improved in numerous areas.

    Texans- 16-16 over the last two seasons. Maybe the worst team in the NFL at meeting high expectations. Lost their best defensive player.

    Texans ranked above Patriots.

    Yep..... and he could have taken his Giants rationale, applied it to the Patriots, and had a common sense 1/2 ranking right there. Instead, he chose to go full Prisco.

    Might as well get used to this type of power ranking between now and at least the first few weeks of the season. Let's see:

    1. Giants, defending champs.
    2. Packers. "Learned lessons and improved after great but disappointing season; and we just love the way Aaron Rodgers plays the game plus he's cool and the Saints will be out of it."
    3. 49ers. Sexy trendy pick #1
    4. Texans. Sexy trendy pick #2 (who needs Mario?)
    5. Pats. Yeah, them again. Significantly improved team that came a Pollard-induced injury from winning the Super Bowl, but, um ... but. ...

    I've never agreed with putting the SB Champs first just because they were the SB champs. They were still 13-7.

    1. Packers
    2. Pats

    Everyone else is way below these two teams.

    I think the Texans will still be a competitive team certainly not at the Pats level.

    Who cares about Power Rankings especially in May? I read them for entertainment purposes, but I guarantee you any Power Ranking in May is going to be very different than all the Power Rankings next January.

    I don't mind the "they won, they're on top" rankings. What I mind is the whole "Houston might have been the best team in the AFC" argument putting the Texans above the Patriots when Green Bay clearly WAS the best team in the NFC, but they end up below the Giants.

    Then again, it's Prisco. Consistency and intelligence are not hallmarks of his work.

    Last time I checked Tom Brady > Matt Schaub. The Giants deserve their number 1 ranking, the Patriots by way of 2011 accomplishment, their Superbowl berth and roster improvement should be number 2.

    Strange rationale.
