Do we have to post our picks now, or can we wait? Because there hasn't even been a preseason game yet and I'll need that and other info to base my picks on.
Thanks, its gonna be hard though (to pick).
ps. great job with the site!:)

Did you already pick, Fat Elvis?
07-31-2001, 11:11 PM
but it is sooo tempting...
I'm just football hungry.

I did submit my power rankings though.....
My homervision may have clouded my judgement on the Chiefs, but I really feel they will surprise everyone--I pick them as the legitimate dark horse of the league that everyone is underestimating.......

Those are my feelings exactly!!!! It is really tempting, but I'm gonna wait, though.
waiting for week 1

I threw my preseason rankings up there for the hell of it. I was bored so I added some comments.
Great work on the Bulletin board. This is the best BB I have ever seen on the net. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.

Ok, Fat Elvis...
Tell me what you think of my power rankings.
07-31-2001, 11:44 PM
I really didn't give much thought (kind of like the experts) but I just hurried it together.
07-31-2001, 11:46 PM
Cody, I will tell you what I think. Broncos are ranked too damn low!

I had the AFC west teams a bit higher than you did. I think they won't have the best records (from playing each other), but I do think they (Denver, Oakland and KC-darkhorse) didn't play in this division, they would utterly dominate the AFC. I think Baltimore was more of a fluke than anything last year; I think they will go to the playoffs because they are playing a wildcard schedule this year even though they are SB champs, but I think they lose in 1st or 2nd round.
By and large, nice picks. It's hard to really get a handle on things this early, but that's half the fun....

I'm biased, I should have wrote that in when I ranked the Chiefs at #6;)

Nice job on the power rankings.
The only thing I question is the Pats being at 30, and the Chiefs being so high at 6.
Other than that, good work.

I ranked the Ravens #1 because they are the defending champs, and unbiasedly (is that a word?) they have upgraded their team. But I think there success this year will depend on whether their O, not their D. No team's O is going to underestimate their D like last year and will be be ready for them, therefore putting some added pressure on the O (and our friend Grby) to score points.
This may spell doom for Grby, but who knows, he might live up to the pressure with the help of Bilick.

I don't think the Pats will be that good this year, what have they done this offseason, seriously? Do they have a RB or an OL to keep the heat off Drew Bledsoe?
As for the Chiefs, I think they'll surprise, and the staff and co. is keeping the fan base sane with all this "long, long way to go" BS., IMO.

I noticed you and I ranked the Falcons kind of similar. I tnink Vick will end up starting this year, whether it be week 1, or 10, he will be starting by the end of the year. I feel Vick is going to be special. You?
BTW, nice takes on all the teams!!!!

I haven't done the power ranking yet, but I do have a couple of comments regarding Cory's rankings.
I'm not sure that they woud be as low as #30 in my rankings, but the Pats will definitely be in my bottom 10.
Bill Bellichick rates right up there with Gun as a HC in my opinion, and Drew Bledsoe is the most overrated QB in the league.
I also don't believe that Vick wil see the field in Atlanta, except as the result of injury to Chandler and Zeier.
