The first NFL 2011 power rankings

It is always a little nerve racking to see the first power rankings for the NFL. I have not seen all the teams play yet, but will once I spend the next few days glued to the NFL network, and I know already that some will be upset with where their favorite team has been ranked. In the pre season these rankings will change a lot, and as I get through my NFL team previews (this year featured at mtrfootball.com), they always change a ton. So be patient if your team is good they will climb the rankings and if not...Well we know already. With that being said let us get to it:

1.New England Patriots- They looked good, and Tom Brady has yet to play2.Philadelphia Eagles- The NFL dream team, we think3.New Orleans Saints- I like what they have added4.Green Bay Packers- defending champs5.New York Jets- I am betting Rex Ryan fixes their issues6.Atlanta Falcons- a young team on the rise7.Indianapolis Colts- They are still pretty good8.St. Louis Rams- maybe a little high, but they look good9.Baltimore Ravens- maybe a little low, we will see10.San Diego Chargers- another very good team11.Pittsburgh Steelers- hard to bet against them12.Tampa Bay Buccaneers- another young team on the rise13.New York Giants- I am very unsure about them14.Detroit Lions- injuries are a problem, but they look sharp15.Chicago Bears- we never believe in the Bears16.Seattle Seahawks- I actually like what they have done17.Cleveland Browns- I want to believe18.Houston Texans- This is probably low for them, to be continued19.Dallas Cowboys- I don't have a good idea about this team yet20.Denver Broncos- on paper they look pretty good21.Jacksonville Jaguars- they could surprise some folks22.Oakland Raiders- due for a big step forward23.Arizona Cardinals- high for a team with a new QB24.Washington Redskins- if things bounce right for them they may surprise25.Carolina Panthers- I do not think they are headed anywhere26.Tennessee Titans- sign Chris Johnson already27.Miami Dolphins- QB issues are not good28.Buffalo Bills- maybe their better than this29.Minnesota Vikings- can we say rebuild30.San Francisco 49ers- QB issues31.Kansas City Chiefs- scored no points and have 33 million dollars in cap space32.Cincinnati Bengals- man did they look bad
