Now that SB Nation's finally gotten their server apocalypse under control, I feel secure in resuming my normal blogging activities. It's been four days since the last rankings post, so as a quick reminder here is a quick run down of the power rankings so far:

32. Jacksonville Jaguars

31. New York Jets

30. Oakland Raiders

29. Arizona Cardinals

28. Buffalo Bills

27. Tennessee Titans

26. Dallas Cowboys

25. Carolina Panthers

As for the Bucs, the only reason I put them slightly ahead of the Panthers is because I think they traded and drafted for players that will make an immediate impact from Day 1.

24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2012 Record: 7-9)

In spite of the Darrelle Revis trade, the Buccaneers are suffering from horribly inconsistent offensive output and I don't see that trend improving anytime soon. Their draft was actually pretty good considering they gave up their first round selection for Revis.

Josh Freeman showed really good potential in his rookie campaign, but has since floundered terribly. So much so that the front office are hoping third round draft pick in quarterback Mike Glennon will either beat out Freeman in camp or push him to play better.

The problem is, I'm not sold on either guy and in a top heavy division that tells me they will be picking fairly high next year. I give them an A for effort, but until the quarterbacking issue is resolve, this franchise will continue to flounder.
