Don't know if this has been posted yet, thought I'd share it...

http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=3798645

#5 in Wideout Rankings? (Ever heard of #89, shoot, what was his name again?)

#11 in QB ratings ?!?!?! (How quickly these guys forget about the play of Jake in the playoffs and Super Bowl. Behind Chad Pennington and Joe Flacco, are you kidding me?!?!? And only above Tavaris Jackson/Frerotte? You must be joking)

Just had to get this off my chest...

i could live with #5 for WR. But come on 11 in QB with chad pennington and joe flacco being better? Even Kerry Collins?

I'm not really sure how they think we have the best Special Teams...unless all the other teams suck at it.

yeah #11 for QBs is just wrong, these rankings seem to be more about the scouting reports on the induvidual units rather than how these units work within the team

see how highly our DBs are rated? They are good induvidual players and very talented, we may have the best trio of CBs in the leauge, but they have been getting raped the last few games and shouldn't be rated so high when they secondary has been playing so poorly,

it's the opposite with jake, he deserves alot higher than 11, especially the playoff jake

Jake's been out of the playoffs for 3 years so the scouts forget just how crazy he played in those games..

Quite possibly the dumbest thing I've seen from ESPN and that's saying something.

Well when Ryan and Flacco hit the inevitable rookie playoff wall, we'll see just how much those writers know. # 11 for Jake. I just can't get over that. Astounding...:eek:

Are the rankings based on stats, or on subjective analysis? If they are based on actual stats, then its easy to see why our QB and receiver rankings would be relatively low. We don't throw the ball a lot.

Our pass defense is actually pretty good statistically, but we have been run on a lot. Our fans keep harping on pass defense, but its our run defense that worries me. We really haven't stopped a decent running team in a while, and most of the teams we will be playing have run dominated offenses.

LOL....so the Chargers and Steelers have a better WR corps than we do? Im not even going to comment on the QB thing, that is just absurd. Also, we should have the #1 rated RB's.
