Early Power Rankings

Postby dirtybirdnw » Thu Aug 25, 2005 5:14 pm

I've seen some power rankings come out this week.

FOX Sports, 9th: This is a franchise headed in the right direction under heady head coach Jim Mora (he's no Junior), though Michael Vick and Co. remain one year away from the Super Bowl. The Falcons benefited from a major down year for the NFC in '04, but competition and the schedule will toughen this time around. But watch out in 2006, with Vick (another year in the West Coast offense under his belt) throwing to young receivers Michael Jenkins and Roddy White.

Sportsline, 6th: Will Michael Vick improve his passing? If he does, they can unseat the Eagles.

ESPN, 6th: With his big new contract and some offseason issues, Michael Vick will find a decent amount of pressure on him to take his game up to another level.

I figure we have as much chance as anybody to win the NFC if our key players, especially Vick can stay healthy. But although everyone seems to focus on Vick's health, but I don't know how much success we would have if guys like Crump, Kerney, Coleman, Hartwell, and Hall missed significant time (like 4 or more games).
