    Anyone know where were the browns in King's rankings at the end of the year?

    Has Mangini really pushed them backwards?

    King only ranks the top 15, I'm pretty sure.

    Re: Peter King Ranks the NFL Teams.. Pats #1

    So true, but I still like seeing the Pats so high on everyone's lists. It wasn't that many years ago that the Pats weren't even in the top 1/2 of these rankings. Now we are right up there every year. It's nice to be relevant in the NFL!

    IMO, Steelers should be ranked #1. They are the defending champs and will be tough to beat this season.

    i think so too.i heard him on the dan patrick show today and he says nothing has changed in the pats of 2007 and this team with brady coming back so they will good. well..we dont have vrabel,harrison,samuel,hobbs -as good or bad as they were.so his logic is flawed.
    plus if the pats were the champs and the colts were ranked #1(which happened sometimes during those yrs) then we would be screaming "no respect".
    i guess the media has given up forecasting doom and gloom for the pats after their offseason subtractions and now are going the other way.

    From 2001-2006, no one gave the Pats respect and not many put them in the top 10 during the post draft periods.

    Finally after 6 years of the Pats obliterating the NFL competition, the idiots finally realized that maybe this team is pretty good, but only did so until the Pats made a "sexy" player acquisition in Moss. At least Peter King is grasping this very complicated concept. Give him credit:D

    Re: Peter King Ranks the NFL Teams.. Pats #1

    I didn't read the whole thing, so I probably missed something. But didn't he say top 20 statistical seasons? Not THE best in the last 20 years, but in the top 20 seasons all time. If so, then Brady and Manning are 1 and 2, and that leaves 18 spots for him to possibly be correct.

    King's a junk journalist and doesn't have freaking clue. The Pats must automatically suck since PK says they're #1.

    Trust me, I discovered this logic here, though I guess sometimes it's applied selectively... ;)

    Different season - Different rankings.

    I'll never understand the entitlement that the Super Bowl winner gets in the next season. They can loose their entire offensive line and have a horrible draft and we still have to choose them as the no. 1 team based on what they did last year?

    I don't get it - Help me understand this thinking. If it's respect, that's not fact based.

    I think the head coach of the Steelers said it best when asked about next year hours after winning the Super Bowl - Mike Tomlin doesn't believe in repeats. In today's NFL, Tomlin says there can be no such thing because no two teams are exactly the same.

    Re: Peter King Ranks the NFL Teams.. Pats #1

    I'm still think Cutler is more hype than anything else. Yes, he had a lot of passing yards and the Broncos had the second ranked offense in terms of yards, but the Broncos were 16th in points scored. You look at a lot of their games and the defense put them in a hole early and Cutler was forced to air it out a lot. The league give far too much emphasis on yards over points.

    Re: Peter King Ranks the NFL Teams.. Pats #1

    His own words in the piece: "I bet there haven't been 20 seasons -- ever -- as statistically impressive as the one Rivers had last year"

    Unless he figures that neither the '04 Manning season or the '07 Brady season weren't as "statistically impressive" it's not the best.
