So, this morning NFL.Com ranked the 32 teams in the league. According to the website the number one team is the Packers and the last team is the Browns. The Rams aren't too far from the Browns, ranking as the 29th team in the league.

There were 13 writers in this poll, the highest rank that the Rams were given was 24, by Brian Webber, who is now my favorite writer. The worst rank was 31st, given by Bucky Brooks and Charley Casserly.

Well, at least the Rams aren't in last place. Hell, the Rams aren't even ranked in the 30's. I know the ranking won't make you run and tell your friends, but after a so-so pre-season and getting embarrassed by the Cowboys, it's hard to expect different.

The main thing that I disagree with, is the 27th ranking of the Cardinals. They have looked awful on offense, and had the worst QB competition in the league. I would say that they are worse then the Browns.

Just like the pre-season, the first three weeks of power rankings are meaningless, because there will be a lot of movement based on surprise and disappointing teams.
