No one cares about power rankings, I get it. I also love to see when the Birds are ranked high amongst the leagues upper echelon teams. I don’t read power rankings when my team sucks. I’m a sucker for it when the teams good. The Wawa coffees taste better, the Philly pretzel factory rivets taste like pretzels from heaven and the power rankings are borderline sexual. Let’s get a consensus from around the web of football writers of how the Eagles are viewed nationally after Monday nights whooping of the Vikings. Go Birds!
NFL’s own website of course puts out their owner power rankings because of course they do! Everyone gets involved in these rankings because they must sure get page views! NFL’s website has the Eagles coming in 3rd overall!
CBS Sports has the Birds coming in 4th, only behind 3 other 2-0 teams in the Chiefs, Bills and. Around 4th appears to be the most common landing place for the Birds overall amongst all the websites. Pete Prisco is a well respected NFL writer for many years.
Yahoo! has the Eagles the highest of all the power rankings with the Birds coming in 3rd! Oh baby. Yahoo! goes on to rave about Jalen Hurts and how much the team is going to owe him in free agency. Only teams ahead of him on Yahoo’s list is the Chiefs and Bills.
ESPN isn’t as favorable as Pro Football Talk as they have the Eagles coming in 8th overall. Behind some a bunch of 1-1 teams like the Packers, Chargers and Rams. When you look at the pedigree of the QB’s listed above them, in a way it’s tough to argue.
Pro Football Talk and Mike Florio. Mike and the staff have them 4th overall, behind the Bucs, Bills and Chiefs. Seems pretty fair because those 3 teams are all considered the top Super Bowl favorites according to the sports books across the country.
