USA Today Power Ranking Comment...

"Apparently Matt Moore was in the bullpen far too long." And we were ranked 19th in the power rankings. There was also a comment about the Bucs that said, "Does Bill Cowher really want to board this ship?" And they had San Diego ranked #1 because of the Colts' loss. Thoughts on any of these? I'm tired of discussing Smitty's arm and his "replacement", what we're doing in April's draft, or whether Fox will leave or get canned.

Re: USA Today Power Ranking Comment...

Carolina is the 2nd best team in the NFC right now, Philadelphia is ahead of us, but I think we could beat them with Moore and the Defense playing how they are now

I am so upset we are not in the running for the playoffs this year, it will suck to wait months till the next season-I think if we can get a Dominant #2 receiver via trade maybe a Boldin? We need to keep stewie and d-will and sutton-I think we can be a dominant team, I just heard the schedule-we play seattle, Dallas, St Louis, Cleveland-on the road next season and our home schedule is a little tougher but noy my much, we can go 10-6 11-5 next season easily

Re: USA Today Power Ranking Comment...

So we're playing the NFC West and AFC North next season? That means another battle with the Cardinals and a meeting with Blitzburg. Maybe Warner will break his hip, Fitzgerald will suffer the Madden Curse a year late, Boldin will become a star for the Panthers, and Polamalu will be out most of next season too. Just kidding. We can beat any team on any day if we allow ourselves to play OUR game.

Re: USA Today Power Ranking Comment...

I agree that we have a chance to easily go 11-5 or 10-6.  With our running game, a healthy defense and o-line, and another weapon at WR we could be unstoppable. Along with the NFC West and AFC North we will play Giants/Bears, or GB,Dallas/Eagles depending on if we end up 2nd or 3rd in the division this year.  AFC looks to be pretty tough next year with the exception of the Browns, but the west of course has the Rams and Seahawks. 

Anyone else notice that the Card vs. Panthers is becoming a pretty common heated battle between the two teams, since last year

Re: USA Today Power Ranking Comment...

the comments about Moore being held in the bullpen to long...that opinion seems obvious and is shared by many, many people---even folks out here in Neb.

SD is IMO the sleeping Giant in the AFC
Phil in the NFC

As for Cowher and the Buc's why not...it is a good organization...problem is that it seems they plan to stick with the young kid morris????

Re: USA Today Power Ranking Comment...

Morris has sealed up his job for next season by beating the Saints (read: Cowher isn't going there).

Also, I hope an organization wouldn't be stupid enough to can a brand new coach with a brand new qb, even though it is the bucs.

And as far as us being the second best team in the NFC, are you kidding me???

Sure, we've taken long strides, but we played a mightily struggling Minnesota team and a very, very, very overrated Giants team and now we're the second best?

We're damn good and I'd imagine that we could keep with most of the teams, but I haven't seen anything that says we're THAT good yet.  Maybe next year when we're healthy and hopefully get some new weapons (I'd be down with trading for boldin).

Re: USA Today Power Ranking Comment...

Boldin's a FA after this season isn't he? Or is he a RFA? I know the guy wants out of AZ regardless. But I'm not sure we have the juice (compensation) to go get him if it's a trade issue. They'd want a 1st or two 2nds for him. And does he FIT our system? Of course the system can change a bit to compensate for new players, but would he fit? He wants to be a #1 WR. We've got one of those with Smitty, but would having two #1s be a bad thing? Something to think about.

Also, Steve Breaston is for sure a FA. Maybe we go get sombody like him? Brandon Marshall and Vincent Jackson are too, but those guys will get their payday and stay where they are. I don't trust our WR drafting skills. Moose was the best we ever did and that was 1996. And Smitty doesn't count because we didn't draft him with the hopes of him becoming the receiver he is today.
