    Not a regular column but just thought we could use a quick update, my own opinions of course.
    1. Atlanta (13-2)
    2. Philadelphia (12-2)
    3. New England (10-4)
    4. Kansas City (9-5)
    5. Chicago (11-3)
    6. New York Jets (11-3)
    7. Tampa Bay (13-2)
    8. Detroit (9-5)
    9. Buffalo (9-5)
    10. Green Bay (8-6)
    11. New Orleans (8-7)
    12. Indianapolis (8-6)
    13. Tennessee (8-6)
    14. Dallas (9-5)
    15. Miami (8-6)
    16. Carolina (7-8)
    17. Oakland (7-7)
    18. Baltimore (6-8)
    19. Jacksonville (6-8)
    20. Seattle (6-8)
    21. Houston (6-8)
    22. Cleveland (6-8)

    24. St Louis (5-9)
    25. Denver (5-9)
    26. Washington (3-11)
    27. Minnesota (4-10)
    28. Pittsburgh (4-10)
    29. New York Giants (2-12)
    30. San Diego (3-11)
    31. Cincinnati (3-11)
    32. Arizona (2-12)
    Not too many surprises at the top I don't think. Atlanta has shown to be probably the strongest, most balanced team all season. Philadelphia is no slouch either then you have defending champ New England just barely flying under the radar. I propped Kansas City up higher than some of the other teams because I think Baron can simply out gun the other users, no offense to them of course.

    Chicago and NYJ could easily contend for a championship and everyone's biggest surprise is probably how low I've ranked TB. I got to see TB play in person against the Redskins and they gave them everything they could handle so thats why I have them as low as I do. Something to keep in mind though, they only have 2 losses in that insanely tough division so don't sleep on those guys.

    Detroit and Buffalo are both skating on thin ice right now, a couple breaks against them and they could easily miss out on the playoffs. Just behind them, a whole slew of teams are bunched up in GB, NO, IND, TEN, DAL, MIA are in hot pursuit of wildcard spots. I would not be surprised to see a team from this group jump up and knock out some of the teams in current position to head to the playoffs, especially with division games getting lumped at the end of the schedule as they are now in the NFL.

    Suprisingly, a team with a losing record like Baltimore/Cleveland or Seattle/St Louis/San Francisco are going to sneak in the playoffs by winning their division. Better teams like Carolina, Oakland, Jacksonville and Houston are going to miss out.

    From the bottom of the barrel here, I'm going to pick some teams I think are likely to "break out" next season: Either Washington or NYG and surprisingly, San Diego. I think Coach Mooney is finally going to put it together, Coach Mayernick is finally returning to the GMEN and San Diego may have some rebuilding to do but I think they can score points, and that will give them a chance next season.

    It is worth noting that I did lose to Tampa so maybe they should be higher.

    That said, good stuff Keller.

    Denver is overrated. QB Dakota Hutchinson can't hit the broad side of a barn.

    He just needs time. I scouted him in the draft coming out. Just needs another season to develop. The question is does Denver want to wait that long?

    I don't know... I think Tampa Bay is going to be tough in the playoffs.

    With wins over the Eagles, Falcons and Chiefs this year, we still rather be an underdog. NFC South is no joke, nor has been anyone we've played in two seasons. Anyone within that top 20 can put it on you if you make mistakes. A few owners would be up higher if not due to sims etc...

    Obviously I don't know TB's or anyone's schedule for that matter. I'm just going off what I saw in person against a Redskins team that, while I like, are a 3 win team. Hard to argue beating 3 teams with a combined 34-8 record and are 1 through 3 in our power rankings though.

    Thats kinda the point though... we've been missing a good heated debate around here for awhile.

    Not really. I need some firepower on offense. The only weapon is Demaryius Thomas, and him being involved depends on Hutchinson.

    I've been shopping RB Stuart Koffa, whos a workhorse type back. I don't know what your TE situation is like either but add a good back plus a nice TE and I think that offense is fine (not knowing the offensive line of course. Decker is underrated.

    When I have an unknown opponent first thing I do is look at their sched. Teams like Oak at 7-7 or NO at 8-7, no one would want to see them on their sched at any point during the season.

    Everybody knows Chicago is going to crumble when they can't cheese their way through the playoffs.

    Not hard to look at 5 teams with fewer than 3 L's. No biggie tho man, solid work I'd rather you put me at 32 any way.

    All I know is that Tampa's safety play is INSANE.

    I prefer you to be my playoff matchup.

    Mark Baron is a monster. If only we could keep our "beast" MLBs healthy we would be alright. Beason & Judge OUT... ALWAYS!

    Agreed. I haven't done any scouting yet, but the previous regime did a little. Looks like there may be a top ten tight end in the draft. This HB looks good, I may be interested. Want McKelvin back?

    Offensive line isn't bad. I need a RT, but otherwise it will do.

    If by appearance you mean beatdown by Phil, then yes. Appearance it is.
