Check out the final power rankings from ESPN and CBS sportsline below, could they be on more opposite ends of the spectrum?


http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/powerranking


http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/9903170


I don't really care about the rankings in general, I just find it amusing that two outlets report such different information.

The four letter network sucks, this is all I have to say.

Oh I see your point
From CBS
"If Jon Gruden has another season like this one, he'll be gone. Cap problems will make it tough to turn it around."

From ESPN
"Finally flush with cash ($30 million under cap) and draft picks (four in first 68 picks), Bucs look to improve quickly in offseason. "

LOL.

Yeah but at least they got it right in this instance. How a guy (Prisco) can "earn" a living while spewing flat out wrong information is beyond me.

Yeah, it's hilarious. The guy doesn't even check to make sure his "facts" are legit. I'm glad to see quality and accuracy are his number 1 goal.

Well I have seen bad media reports before, but, damn, did he just copy his 2004 rankings. Talk about proving to the whole nation how lazy you are.

Kinda like Howie Long last night introducing the ND starting DL using the names of the LSU players and vice versa



Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow will be a great NFL QB is an idiot.

Or in the same broadcast that corpse impersonator Kenny Albert stating that the Browns had the 3rd pick in the draft. I love how these guys do their homework.

I was kind enough to send Prisco a nice email. Nothing pisses me off more than a person who doesn't EARN a living.

rjgobucs1-Most of them are they get paid to write about sports, but only pay attention to their favorite teams or the big market teams.

That's true, I'm just saying let's not generalize the entire crop, even if it seems like everyone.

Well 99% of them are old, fat white guys who don't pay attention to all the teams, just the huge market teams.
