ESPN Preseason Power Rankings are out

Boy, there are too optimistic on Atlanta. I expect an improvement from 5-11, but not so high!!! Jeeez. We still don't know if the Vick-to-P.Price thing will work or not. They are just going on a hunch.

The Falcons are the most overrated by far. I would say they are 6-8 spots too high.

Falcon's ranking= :-t

ESPN is WAY too high on Vick, they look at him as a god and the entire Falcon team. I dont believe vick will make everything click, but I do think he will help to make them better then last year

26? No love :-t I think we deserve a little higher, I think we are going to be an improved team over last year-our holes are being filled.

Overall pretty good though ;-D

What the heck...The Packers over the Vikings? The Vikings were one game away from being number one in the division last year and then this offseason they do what? Re-load. We picked up another big threat WR in Marcus Robinson, a shut-down CB in Winfield, and had a VERY nice draft. We got Udezi to fill the biggest hole in our D at DE and we got Thomas to fill our OLB position, the other most glaring hole we had. Who did we lose? Uhh...a few backup O-lineman and Greg Biekert. We also got a few other rookies later in the draft that could easily turn out to be stars. We also got an All-Pro punter which was a major hole for us last year also, our punter was a major part in three of our losses last year, bobbling snaps, shanking kicks, and what-not. Now, onto the Packers...what did they do? Their "elite" CB is being greey and knows the team can't afford to give him a hige contract but demands more money. Favre is getting older, Ahman apparently still isn't working on his problem with his hands which leads to fumbling. Who'd they pick up? Uhh, could somebody please tell me? They're draft was nothing spectacular, they had some nice pics, better than some teams like the Rams, addressing areas of need but the Vikes still had a better draft, we got the best DE in the draft and Donatarrius is gonna be good, he's solid. I just don't understand this reasoning. I guess this is just all the more reason for the league to be awestruck when the Vikes go far next season...

As to the rest of the league...it's ok...

Yea, yea, yea. That's really the point I'm trying to make. We were one defensman away from division title and the playoffs and what did we do? We went got rid if Denard Walker (how could I have possibly left that off my previous post?) the uy who got burned on that play and went and signed a shut-down corner. We lost nobody and we are still supposed to lose to the Packers again?

Two numbers for ya Zimm... 6-0.

Season ending record: 9-7

And this was with Moss and Culpepper both having career years.

Yup, Yup, yup...Our D more or less was non-existent in the second part of the season. They stopped forcing the TOs they did in the first half to keep us on top. Again, here is why I think we'll do much better next year. We got rid of our worst signing ever (since Chris Dishman at least, but don't get me started on him) in Denard Walker. We got a shut-down CB in Winfield, something we haven't had since uhh..ever maybe? We filled our other two biggest holes one D in DE and OLB and got a FS in the draft who could replace Russell sometime down the road. In return we lost Biekert, an aging LB who didn't show much last year. We have EJ Henderson to replace him who has played very well when given time.

To sum it up, I just don't see how the Vikings couldn't do any better next year and the Packers do do better. You don't have much to back up the Packers either as you have to resort to bad memories to come back at me with. :-t

I only need two word to support the Packers: Brett Favre.

I have more though, the Packers will be easily able to handle Moss now with their surplus of corners and Barnett will only improve on his awesome rookie year. The running game is among the best in the league, and Javon Walker is breaking out big-time this year. Plus the Packers have been a perennial playoff team year after year and being a 4th and 26 incompletion away from the NFC Championship is a lot more than I can say for the Vikings. Defensive end is the only real weak spot and with KGB all that's needed is a complement on the pass rush.

Zimm, I eagerly await our first paperbag challenge. :-)
