I’m sure plenty of you will have something to say about FanSided NFL’s recently-released preseason Top 25 poll – a weekly poll that will become the staple of debate for the coming 20-plus weeks as the preseason unfolds and the regular season rolls in. The poll is determined by the vote of a group of editors from within the FanSided Network, the parent of this particular site.
In my mind, I just don’t see where the Broncos are rated number one. They play in the league’s weak sister division and have a quarterback, who in my mind, is probably in his final campaign. Personally, I would rank the Seahawks or even the 49ers above them.
As for Atlanta – I’ve never been a believer in Matt Ryan. I think he’s good, but he ain’t no Aaron Rodgers.
I feel the Packers should be notched up at least one spot, possibly two on this list. But we’ll see how things over the next two months play out. There are a lot of naysayers out there as far as the Packers go. They don’t see a team with an improved defense and a running game that’s going to make the offense much more prolific.
Time will tell.
On another note, you will notice that the NFC North is well represented on this list, with every team noted. The Minnesota Vikings are 13th, the Chicago Bears are 15th (too high), and the Detroit Lions are 22nd.
So, take a look below, and leave us a message to let us know how you feel. We would love to hear from you.
