May 13, 2013; Jacksonville, FL, USA; Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert (11) reacts during organized team activities at The Florida Blue Health

32. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team going through a lot of change right now. They gutted their defensive backfield, didn’t change the quarterback position, and Justin Blackmon got in trouble. I’m not going to say this is a franchise in a shambles, but they are definitely reloading. They started off their rebuild by adding Luke Joeckel as the left tackle of the future, and then re-built the secondary. I like Gus Bradley as a head coach, and I think this is a make or break year for Blaine Gabbert as the starting QB in Jacksonville. Don’t be surprised if they are in contention for the #1 pick throughout the season.

    Vikings at 20? No holes to fill, Greg Jennings, and three first round draft picks. Plus, Christian Ponder showed improvement early on and later in the season. They also made the playoffs last season. You clearly haven’t analyzed the Vikings roster, watched them play, evaluated their draft, coaches and management. And what makes them go from a top 12 team last year to number 20?
    Was it the three first round draft picks? Was it Greg Jennings? Yeah…thought so. Ignorant fucker.

      Is it really that big of a deal that you had to make such an offensive comment? The Vikings are counting on a big year from Christian Ponder. I am not buying into Ponder until I see him prove on the field that he can be more than an average QB.

    Sorry, ‘Niners at SIXTH??? Not even top 2 or 3? Yeah, sure they went to the NFC Championship game 2 years ago, went to the Superbowl last year, and they return one of the best defenses while they added on a great draft class… but they’re SIXTH? A team looking to make another Superbowl run shouldn’t be listed at number six man…

      So who are they better than in the top 5?

    • SayreBedinger

      I like the five QBs ahead of them on the list better than Kaepernick. Being at #6 on this list is not a bad thing at all. This is going to be a big year in the NFL, and the Niners are among the elite teams in the NFL.

    I can respect this. I do think that the Rams are better than their ranking. But that’s just me.

    • SayreBedinger

      Thanks Ben. This was a tough ranking to make. I think the Rams had as good an offseason as any team in their division, which is saying something. I think they are a sleeper playoff candidate this year. I’m concerned most about their safety position and the loss of Steven Jackson.

    The rams went 4-1-1 in the bet division in football with the addition of tj mcdonald and they still have finnegan and janoris jenkins and you have them at 25?????

    I also might add its the first time in bradfords career that he has the same offensive cordonator in 2 years in a row
