Power Rankings

Joes certain that Rachel Watons power ranking would be extremely high.

Joe's certain that Rachel Watson's power ranking would be extremely high.

Joe has been surfing a bit and came across some opening power rankings of NFL teams. BSPN.com, SI.com and CBSSports.com each have their power rankings up.

Former Tampa Tribune Bucs beat writer Pat Yasinskas has the Bucs ranked No. 15 in the NFL.

“Defense looked strong in the preseason. But QB Jeff Garcia and WR Joey Galloway missed lots of practice time with injuries and might not be sharp right away.”

Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com isn’t as high on Tampa Bay. He has the Bucs listed at No. 19.

“The big question all season will be whether Jeff Garcia can recapture the magic from 2007. If not, the fans will be killing the Bucs for not getting Brett Favre.”

Then there’s the acerbic yet witty Paul Zimmerman, more popularly known as Dr. Z, one of the deans of football writers in the nation. He has the Bucs at No. 13.

I don’t know what’s keeping them up there. Jeff Garcia’s 39, Joey Galloway’s 37. The defense can play, but I’m not wild about their offensive line. “So why are they up here?” asks The Flaming Redhead. “Because the Super Bowl’s in Tampa.” “Of all the lame, stupid…” OK, OK already. I told you, this whole thing’s a reach.

When Joe stumbles upon other power rankings, he’ll let you know.
