Its the Washington REDSKINS. Thats REDSKINS. Its time the silent majority(83% strong on this issue) stands up for ourselves. I am a Patriots fan, if The Skins change their name, I will never watch another NFL game again. REDSKINS REDSKINS REDSKINS REDSKINS!!!!

Just noted that EVERY team's name was associated with their city (Chicago BEARS, Buffalo BILLS, etc...) with one exception, Washington.

The Raiders will do a lot better than the so called experts predict. It is easy to count them out, but they put together a decent team and will beat a number of those listed above them.

if these rankings are correct then the Lions should wind up 9-7 with a playoff spot . I agree !

Guess #5 Green Bay is in trouble... just what nobody really needs is a "complimentary" pass rusher... "Hi Tom, you're looking good today... glad I could get so close to you!"

The Lions and the Buccaneers have a better rating than the Giants, Jets and Chiefs? What is wrong with this picture?

nothing - the giants will be pathetic - the jets not much better and the chiefs might be decent. if you know football you would know the LIONS are stacked -- BTW im a packers fan but it it is

I'd like to know how the Giants and the Jets were both rated higher than the Steelers. Both the Giants and the Jets suck.
