Here are this week's New York Giants' roster power rankings. Who is too high? Who is too low? I'm sure you guys have opinions. Let's hear 'em.

1. Eli Manning -- Yeah, he did his best Mark Sanchez impersonation on Sunday. I don't think we will see that again anytime soon, though. LW: 1

2. Jason Pierre-Paul -- Anyone want to argue? LW: 2

3. Victor Cruz -- Two quiet games in a row for Cruz. He stays in this slot, though, because nobody really deserves to take it away from him. LW: 3

4. Ahmad Bradshaw -- He stays here, largely for the same reason Cruz stays at No. 3. Seriously, who else are you going to put here? I maintain my belief, however, that Bradshaw needs to play fewer snaps and Andre Brown needs more touches. LW: 4

5. Lawrence Tynes -- The guy missed from outside 50 yards on Sunday, another kick he would have made had the Giants not shot themselves in the foot with penalties. No kicker in the league is having a better season. LW: 7

6. Will Beatty -- Continues to play well. Has allowed only one sack and 10 quarterback hurries this season, LW: 9

7. Linval Joseph -- Has to slide a couple of spots after Tom Coughlin called the middle of the Giants' defense "soft" against the Steelers. LW: 5

8. Antrel Rolle -- A couple of very nice plays against Pittsburgh. LW: 11

9. Michael Boley -- A takeaway for a TD, but his run defense wasn't tremendous against Pittsaburgh. LW: 10

10. Stevie Brown -- Did a good job Sunday, but no takeaways. LW: 8

11. Chris Snee -- Not his best game on Sunday, but having a good year. LW: 11

12. Justin Tuck -- Has looked a lot more like himself the past couple of games. LW: 12

13. Martellus Bennett -- More Bennett in the passing game would be a good idea. LW: 13

14. Hakeem Nicks -- I pushed him all the way up to No. 5 a week ago, but that was jumping the gun. He had no impact on Sunday's game at all, and still is not his old self. LW: 5

15. Chase Blackburn -- Absence makes the heart grow fonder. The Steelers pounded away at the middle of the Blackburn-less Giants' defense on Sunday. LW: 15

16. Prince Amukamara -- Because his body of work over the course of the season has earned him this spot. LW: 20

17. Osi Umenyiora -- Played his most active game of the season Sunday. LW: 22

18. Corey Webster -- Webster FINALLY played like the Webster the Giants have been looking for against the Steelers. Oversight on my part not to give him 'Kudos.' LW: 25

19. Henry Hynoski -- Moves down a couple of slots only because a couple of players have to move up. LW: 16

20. Kevin Boothe -- LW: 17

21. David Baas -- A so-so game on Sunday. LW: 19

22. Andre Brown -- Another touchdown against the Steelers. I will keep beating this drum -- the guy needs more carries. LW: 21

23. Domenik Hixon -- No catches Sunday, and only one ball thrown in his direction. It did, however, earn a pass interference penalty. LW: 18

24. Rocky Bernard -- Played 40 snaps Sunday due to Chris Canty's injury, probably a lot more than would have been ideal. LW: 29

25. Mathias Kiwanuka -- What has happened to Kiwanuka? Whether it is at linebacker or on the defensive line, he has been invisible too often. LW: 24

26. Sean Locklear -- I am leaving him ahead of David Diehl based on one simple observation -- he has played better than the guy now starting ahead of him. LW: 23

27. Steve Weatherford -- Nice tackle Sunday. Not such a great job punting the ball. LW: 27

28. Chris Canty -- Did not play much Sunday due to a groin issue. Had only one assisted tackle. LW: 26

29. Jayron Hosley -- Rookie or not, how does a slot cornerback line up offside? LW: 28

30. David Diehl -- Moves up because he started. What he did not do is play very well. LW: 39

31. Kenny Phillips -- Another week missing for KP. LW: 30

32. Reuben Randle -- He fair catches very nicely. LW: 31

33. Markus Kuhn -- Only three defensive snaps, even with Chris Canty slowed by a groin issue. LW: 32

34. Bear Pascoe -- Ankle injury kept him out Sunday. Did the Giants miss his blocking? Maybe. LW: 34

35. David Wilson -- It seems like a looooong time since Wilson has broken a kickoff return. LW: 35

36. Mark Herzlich -- Not great work on Sunday at middle linebacker, but he played 69 of 70 defensive snaps and 20 special teams' snaps.

37. Zak DeOssie -- Part of Sunday's coverage nightmare. LW: 37

38. Michael Coe -- A brilliant play to stop the Steelers' fake punt on Sunday. LW: 41

39. Ramses Barden -- Never saw the field on offense. LW: 38

40. Jacquian Williams -- Sliding because he's not playing. LW: 37

41. Justin Tryon -- Two weeks in a row Tryon has made plays to down punts inside the 10-yard line. LW: 44

42. Tyler Sash -- The Giants somehow ended up playing Sash for six uneventful snaps on defense. LW: 42

43. Spencer Paysinger -- Played 23 special teams snaps, and the special teams were AWFUL. LW: 40

44. Keith Rivers -- Now we know why Cincinnati was willing to let him go. He can't stay on the field. LW: 33

45. Marvin Austin -- Active, but never saw the field on defense or special teams. LW: 43

46. Travis Beckum -- Played seven snaps and was part of the awful kickoff coverage unit. LW: Unranked

47. Adrian Tracy -- LW: 45

48. David Carr -- LW: 47

49. Jim Cordle -- LW: 48

50. Jerrel Jernigan -- Active Sunday for a change. LW: 51

51. James Brewer -- LW: 50

52. Adrien Robinson -- LW: 52

53. Adewale Ojomo -- LW: 53
