I have said before that I hate off-season power rankings and all that nonsense. SI.com's Don Banks has come up with a good one, though, ranking the performance of all 32 NFL teams in the past decade.
Not surprisingly, the New England Patriots, with three Super Bowl titles to their credit, are No. 1 on Banks' list.
Our New York Giants are fifth, according to Banks, behind New England, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Philadelphia. You can argue about the Philly ranking, since the Eagles have not won a Super Bowl this decade. The Eagles, though, have 10 playoff victories -- topped only by the 14 amassed by the Patriots. So, I can understand the choice.
Now let's Tour SB Nation quickly and see what else the fine football bloggers around here are talking about.
- Windy City Gridiron wonders what Tony Dungy has against Jay Cutler.
- Turf Show Times wonders if the St. Louis Rams will end up in LA if the team is sold.
- Cincy Jungle proves that Giants' fans aren't the only ones who aren't in love with their offensive coordinator.
- Big Cat Country is not happy with Jaguars' star defensive tackle John Henderson.
- Buffalo Rumblings compares the early part of Trent Edwards' career to that of formers Bills' star Jim Kelly.
- The Phinsider is wondering if 2009 will be a breakout season in Miami for former No. 1 pick Ted Ginn.
