    I guess it's ccol that we've number one, but I don't take too much stock in these power rankings this time of the year. Still, it's nice to see that we're so highly thought of around the NFL.

    Hard work and focus will get us to the next level, which is the Lombardi Trophy. The league know we are good it is up to us to be the best.

    I didn't even notice that the Giants got the shaft on this power ranking. I don't put much stock in any of these, and you're right, this one is really bad. Still, it's something to talk about in the off season when there isn't much else going on.

    I don't care about any "rankings" now. Start ranking teams after week 2 or three.

    As a note when did Jacksonville give Indy a run for their money? Indy beat the tar out of Jacksonville both times

    Rankings now don't mean sh!t.

    I'll read your takes as they do have substance to them. But all these "rankings" are merely one-upmanship of one columnist over another.

    I think the Chargers being #1 is legitimate but the Giants not even being on the list has to make you question this report.

    As we all know, it is all opinion based but it's a matter of if it's a respected opinion. If you took Eagles out of #5 and replaced them with Giants, I'd say it's about right. :yes:

    I think they meant collectively vs. Indy, Jax "has" pushed the win loss issue a few times, funny how so many writers even forget what year teams play their division tough.

    It's fine for our offseason feeling when the Bolts get No. 1 in
    ranking. But Carlsbad Bolt fan is right saying Rankings start after
    week 2 in the season. I miss Giants and Saints in the Top 16, too.
    .. and I wish aou team is healthy throughout the season.

    This is all the purest and rankest speculation until teams start acquiring injuries in camp and pre season. These things aren't even crap shoots, more like Roulette. Some teams are obvious choices, but if a Manning or a Brady goes down early, things change overnight.
