Good thing championships are won on paper and worthless opinions. The Falcons jumped 12 spots.  Are you frickin' kidding me?  They will still be road kill, buried and rotting n the kudzu, by week 10.

it is all about the QB. if jets announced tomorrow that vick was starter we'd go up 5 spots, not that these things matter until week 17 :)

Fixed.

 

But seriously, ESPN is sh*tting on the Jets? That absolutely thrills me. ESPN is pure crap. It has devolved into one giant troll operation.

we would actually go up, maybe that proves how dumb these rankings are. all based on perception rather than real analysis. they are basically grading 2013 geno, not 2014 geno.

Good point. Apparently in the Giants case they are grading 2011 Eli and not 2013 Eli.

I am outraged that ESPN doesn't think that our 2 upgrades on offense and lateral moves elsewhere are enough to bump us up in their power rankings. Especially with the great Geno Smith entering his second year. Outraged I tell you.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

You are failing to consider the Idzik factor. His mere presence is worth 10 spots in the power rankings. Have you ever heard those Dos equis commericals for the most interesting man in the world? There will be soon radio commercials like that for Idzik.....

 

His players run 30% faster than they would with another GM

 

Referees are so afraid of him they ignore most holding calls agains his team

 

Other GM's will not draft his players out of respect

 

He is the most amazing GM in all of sports!

Doesn't our cap space also figure into this somewhere? If not I think ESPN needs to reconsider their formula.

Yes, but what are the rankings for 2015/2016, when we make that Super Bowl push by meeting the cash floor?

Truth! Forgot about this, between Idzik and cap space we should easily be top 8, ESPN is just a bunch of Jet haters
