Default Preseason Week Four power rankings

Ya, what ever. I don't expect much respect but 31st is just messed up.


31. Denver Broncos: Von Miller just might be your Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Saw this earlier, was expecting us between 25-28 but looking at the entire poll there are a few different rankings that are a little out there.

We're not great by any stretch of the imagination - but from what we've seen from Seattle and Buffalo, we're not the 2nd to worst team in the NFL.

I've never seen a team with such a wide range of expectations as the 2011 Broncos. I've seen media folks talking 8-10 wins. I've seen as few as 3.

It's really going to be a roller-coaster this year

I don't think we are worse than the bills or 49ers, but it is really hard to say until about 4 games into the season. If we are any good, we should be 3-1 and a competitive showing against Green Bay with the way the schedule is.

They just print the same rankings with different comments, nothing has changed in 3 weeks - don't get your panties in a knot.

The Colts are the masters of sucking in the preseason, then going for 10+ wins in the regular season. Power rankings, at this time of year in particular, are stupid.

Detroit went 4-0 in the 2008 preseason
Then they decided to lose every game from there on out

pre-season rankings and rankings in general are fun to read because they illicit a reaction...

Let's not forget KC. If this is based on preseason action why is KC 17?

It cracks me up to see these "rankings" and the respective reactions.

So, are they going off preseason showings or are these regular season predictions? Because they can't have it both ways. If you're strictly going off the preseason, as their title says, then Denver should easily be at the top based on offensive and defensive numbers. Either way, it's ****ing retarded.

I bet if we still had Shanny that would be good for +10 spaces in the rankings.

Thank God the NFL won't adopt the BCS format…


These "power" polls are just as meaningless….

I was really hoping we were ranked 32nd. When is the last time the 32nd pre season ranked team won the Super Bowl like we are going t do this year.
