I don't generally get bent all out of shape over a publication's power rankings during the season. And the occasional offseason power rankings rankle me even less because, let's face it, who knows how much of an impact any draft pick will make.
But ESPN's just-released rankings might raise a Giant eyebrow or two. Tom Coughlin's group is rated 17th, the lower half of the league. That's based on what many consider a less-than-ostentatious draft and a free agent period that saw them add just two safeties -- albeit good ones in Antrel Rolle and Deon Grant -- and a backup quarterback in Jim Sorgi.
What may rankle even further is that those rankings rate the Jets eighth.
Now, I know all you guys are a placid, agreeable group that generally goes along unquestioningly with accepted philosophy (too sarcastic?), but I thought you might appreciate an opportunity to have your own say.
So have at it. The floor is open.
