Thanks to everybody who voted. We 14 voters this week and the general consensus is that the Cowboys are the #1 team in the NFC. The Vikings got a whole lot of love with several top 3 votes and of course the three #1 votes. Considering Tavaris Jackson is running that offense, do people think the defense and Adrian Peterson are good enough? I can certainly agree with a strong running game and a great defense being enough (see the 2000 champs from Baltimore).
After a relatively productive preseason, the 49ers dropped a spot to 11th, but their average ranking actually improved from 10.58 to 9.92. The big reason for that change is people are definitely feeling better about the Carolina Panthers who jumped from 12th to 9th. Jake Delhomme is the first quarterback to ever have Tommy John surgery, and if he can bounce back from that more power to him.
We'll be back for more of your rankings Monday night. In the meantime, enjoy the weekend of football and if you haven't gotten your game predictions in yet, make sure and do that before tomorrow morning. I'll probably promote the contest to the front page later this afternoon.
