They were at 10 because they were 10-6 (tied for 7th best record in the NFL) in 2004 and beat the 12-4 Chargers in the playoffs.

You know, I'm sort of afraid because every time a Seattle team is actually given their credit, they don't live up to expectations (unless they're the Washington Huskies). But of course, considering they're figuring on getting back to the Super Bowl, I guess this might be enough of an undershoot.

miami should be higher with Cpepper practicing already but oh wells, I would rather be an underdog. Pats should drop for their poor offseason, Chiefs need to drop because of the loss of Roaf too. Their Running game just took a crash.

People need to understand that this isn't necessarily predicting how the teams will finish at the end of the year. These are power rankings, which basically are ranking the teams based on what we know right now. Of course someone like Baltimore, Miami, Washington, etc. could end up winning the Super Bowl, but based on last year and what we know right now it would be silly to rank them that high.

They're preseason power rankings, not end of year predictions.

What we know right now is that around 8 new teams will make the playoffs, it happens every year. Basing power rankings on last year performance never works because the NFL uses schedules to make sure that 8 new teams will make the playoffs.
For instance, the NFC North, the worst division in pro football, played the AFC North and the NFC South last year, and both of those conferences produced a lot of playoff teams as a result. The NFC North doesn't play those 2 conferences this year, and as a result there could be fewer playoff teams coming from those 2 conferences. The NFC North instead plays the AFC East and the NFC West, so you might expect to see these 2 conferences produce more playoff teams. On the other hand, the AFC North play the AFC West and the NFC South, so the conference may only produce 1 playoff team. The NFC South may also only see 1 playoff team as they now play the AFC North and the NFC East. That's how the system works.

wow...I didn't no it worked like that...and besides...the people who voted this voted teams who were already good...no creativity

Of course, but like I said, we're ranking these teams based off what we know right now. I don't think anyone expects all of the top 12 teams in our power ranking to make the playoffs, but at this point they certainly have more of an argument than teams like Cleveland, Tennessee, and Houston. Any of those teams could make the playoffs, but right now it would be silly to rank them over more proven teams. This is a power ranking, not a prediction.

Of course someone like Baltimore, Miami, Washington, etc. could end up winning the Super Bowl, but based on last year and what we know right now it would be silly to rank them that high.

They're preseason power rankings, not end of year predictions.
What we know right now is that around 8 new teams will make the playoffs, it happens every year. Basing power rankings on last year performance never works because the NFL uses schedules to make sure that 8 new teams will make the playoffs.
For instance, the NFC North, the worst division in pro football, played the AFC North and the NFC South last year, and both of those conferences produced a lot of playoff teams as a result. The NFC North doesn't play those 2 conferences this year, and as a result there could be fewer playoff teams coming from those 2 conferences. The NFC North instead plays the AFC East and the NFC West, so you might expect to see these 2 conferences produce more playoff teams. On the other hand, the AFC North play the AFC West and the NFC South, so the conference may only produce 1 playoff team. The NFC South may also only see 1 playoff team as they now play the AFC North and the NFC East. That's how the system works.
Of course, but like I said, we're ranking these teams based off what we know right now. I don't think anyone expects all of the top 12 teams in our power ranking to make the playoffs, but at this point they certainly have more of an argument than teams like Cleveland, Tennessee, and Houston. Any of those teams could make the playoffs, but right now it would be silly to rank them over more proven teams. This is a power ranking, not a prediction.
Actually if you examine their schedules, a lot of teams that made the playoffs are very unlikely to repeat. Their power rankings were based on playing Divisions like the NFC North, teams they won't face this coming year. They have little prospect of returning to the playoffs, otherwise you might as well just post last year's standings as your power rankings if your not making any predictions. Since 8 of the 12 playoff teams won't make the playoffs as reality has shown, there are very few arguments that would support these power rankings.
