Not ESPN or CBS but I'll take it.
Since week two of the 2009 NFL season is almost in the books, I decided to do some power rankings. These 2009 pro football power rankings will cover everything that has happened previous to the Monday Night game in week 2.
1- The New Orleans Saints lead my week 2 NFL power rankings. Drew Brees is on a roll and the Saints defense is playing just good enough right now. Barring injury I expect the Saints defense to improve under Greg Williams as the season goes along.
2- The New York Jets under rookie coach Rex Ryan have an awesome defense, which has not allowed an offensive touchdown yet. Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez will make mistakes and cost them while he learns on the job though.
3- The New York Giants are 2-0 and have found a way to win despite the loss of Plaxico Burris. Eli Manning is now an elite quarterback and their defense is playing well. The Giants were my preseason pick for the Super Bowl from the NFC.
4- Those tough Baltimore Ravens are playing some good football on both sides of the ball. If Baltimore had good receivers they would be very deadly. I can't believe no other teams thought Ray Lewis was worth a shot at in free agency.
5- The Atlanta Falcons had wins against two average to bad teams but a win is a win in the NFL. The defense looks improved and Tony Gonzalez has added a new weapon of note to Matt Ryan and the offense.
