    Kirwan's NFL rankings

    [url="http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d8184857e&template=with-video-with-comments&confirm=true"]http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d ... nfirm=true[/url]

    Here is Kirwan's list:


    Tier 1

    Indianapolis Colts

    New Orleans Saints

    Minnesota Vikings

    Dallas Cowboys

    San Diego Chargers

    Green Bay Packers

    Tier 2

    New York Jets

    Baltimore Ravens

    Cincinnati Bengals

    New York Giants

    New England Patriots

    San Francisco 49ers

    Tier 3

    Philadelphia Eagles

    Arizona Cardinals

    Atlanta Falcons

    Pittsburgh Steelers: If Ben Roethlisberger is going to serve his full six-game suspension, then this team drops to Tier 4. I know the Steelers have a lot of pride and the defense and running game will be the focal points until Roethlisberger returns. But Pittsburgh still has issues at cornerback, and the Ravens and Bengals will go after the Steelers with their ramped up passing attacks.

    Miami Dolphins

    Washington Redskins


    Tier 4

    Houston Texans

    Tennessee Titans

    Chicago Bears

    Carolina Panthers

    Seattle Seahawks

    Denver Broncos

    Tier 5

    Kansas City Chiefs

    Oakland Raiders

    Cleveland Browns

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    Detroit Lions

    Buffalo Bills

    St. Louis Rams

    Meaningless. All you have to do is look at the 49ers being a level above the Steelers to realize how ridiculous this is. How long have pundits been trying to make the 49ers relevant gain?

    I would say the Cowboys are Tier II. They got absolutely drubbed by the Vikes in the 09 playoffs. That's not Tier I versus Tier I. With Chris Jenkins back and other upgrades, the Jets have got to be Tier I, quite possibly top 4.

    Giants are Tier II???? They finished last year being tied to the whipping post. They're a low Tier III if you ask me.

    With Ben we're a Low I/High II. Without Ben, I'd say we're a Low II/High III. But that's FOR THE DURATION OF THE SUSPENSION. For the aggregate season, I'd say we're a High II. But in the playoffs, with Ben, we're a Mid to High I.

    Tier I, Tier II, whatever. When it's all said and done the NFL is so hard to predict from year to year, it's inevitable that one of those Tier IV or even Tier V teams will push for a playoff spot and one of the Tier I or Tier II teams will be terrible.

    At this time last year, no one guessed the Steelers would be a middle of the road team or the Saints would be the Superbowl champs.

    I absolutely love when the Steelers role into a season as the underdogs. This team has so much pride...and they play well with a huge chip on their collective shoulders.

    10-6...peak late...another SB.
    Round 1-Rashaan Evans-ILB Alabama
    Round 2- Jessie Bates-FS Wake Forest
    Round 3- Kyzir White-SS West Virginia
    Round 5-Shaquem Griffin-OLB Central Florida
    Round 5b- Bo Scarborough-RB Alabama
    Round 7- Richie James-WR/slot/utility-MTSU
    Round 7b- Brett Toth-OT-Army

    Interesting read for so early in the Pre-preseason.
    So, what are his rankings for daytime TV talk shows? Is Rachael "Tier 1"? What are the odds that Maury is the father of one of those women's children?
