2013 NFL Power Rankings: Offseason Recap

USA TODAY Sports

Well, 32 days, 32 rankings are in the books. The long awaited recap post is here. I'll be using this format with a brief reasoning for each ranking once the season starts. If you want my reasoning here, just click the team link to see the post already written for each of these positions. In parenthesis is the teams previous ranking, which in this case is how they finished the 2012 season. Lastly, I included the poll results for each ranking. Beware, however, most of the traffic for these posts came from respective fans searching on Google - so take those polls with a grain of salt!

1. Denver Broncos (5)

The poll was unanimous in approval that the Denver Broncos are easily the best team in football and destine to win yet another Super Bowl in 2013. All in favor? AYE!

Conclusion

I find it downright hilarious that nearly every team was voted "too low" in these polls. The way I see it, if the "just right" vote got at least 30%, then at least I was in the general ball park of the consensus. I'll keep these power rankings going all year long, but at the end of the season I plan to revisit this post just to see how much of a genius I was and how crazy all of you were!
