    AFC East Offseason Power Rankings

    6. Patriots
    Optimistic: Offseason additions should improve defense.
    Pessimistic: Running game is still a big question mark.

    8. Dolphins
    Optimistic: Ricky Williams was everything the Dolphins hoped for and should be just as good in 2003.
    Pessimistic:Until the Dolphins find a way to win late in the season, who cares?

    11. Jets
    Optimistic:Chad Pennington emerged as a star last season and should continue to improve.
    Pessimistic:But will his lack of arm strength catch up to him?

    15t. Bills
    Optimistic:Offseason additions on defense should help one of the league's most porous defenses.
    Pessimistic:Despite the improvements, they're still probably the No. 4 team in their division.

    Thoughts?????

    I'm not totally sure why the Pats keep getting the nod in the division, can't really argue with what they say about the Fins though.

    While I don't think the Bills are the powerhouse team their fans believe that they will be, I don't think they are 4th in the division either.

    I would have to Rank it

    Fins
    Bills
    Pats
    Jets

    What's with the Pat's hype? I'd agree with your ranking.

    Those rankings were from May 19th.

    A lot has happened since then.

    My rankings:

    1. Fins
    2. Pats
    3. Bills
    4. Jets

    I think the Jets take a big step backward this year. I think the Pats will be better on defense and Brady will continue to shine.

    I think it should be:

    Dolphins
    Bills
    Pats
    Jets

    The Bills, Pats, and Dolphins improved their teams. Of those three, the Dolphins and Bills improved the most. I think the 3-4 system will hurt the Pats.

    The Jets just got worse during the offseason. A lot worse.

    Whose rankings are these? Must be the Boston Globe with the Pats at #6. Still better than Pricso's, he's got the Jets at #4. The only rankings or power polls that I'm gonna concern myself with are the postseason polls. Win the Super Bowl, and the 'Phins will be numero uno in all of them. Until then, these things are opinions, and like the certain part of the anatomy that opinions are compared to, they all stink.

    I wouldn't think the 3-4 would be as effective vs. Ricky.

    These rankings were from ESPN, I don't put much stock in rankings either not even during the season, Hell last year there was a new #1 everyweek for like 8 straight weeks. I posted it more because of the comments, I was sort of surprised they think the Bills are 4th inthe division.

    Can someone help me out here? I don't get all the hype around Rodney Harrison. I may be wrong, but I thought he was a bit on the slow side, plus isn't this his tenth year in the league? How much of an upgrade is he over Tebucky Jones? I realize he's a big hitter, but I'm a little lost on all the love the Patriots are getting for signing him.
    The pleasure of what we enjoy is lost by wanting more.

    He is a definite downgrade from Tebucky Jones, who I thought was a great defender for the Patriots.

    Their best upgrade is obviously Colvin.

    exactamundo, tebucky jones is the guy who cuased fumbles in improtant games against us in NE. big hitter. now they have harrison who got so burned by Ricky its not funny. defeinitely not an upgrade. the move was strictly for the future so they would have a first rounder and some money.
