Top 10 Defenses in the NFL

So i saw a thread somewhere and it had the Top 10 defenses. I didn't believe with it at all so I decided to make my own:

1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dick LeBeau is the best D/C in the NFL. James Harrison and Troy Polamalu are flat out great. Your whole LB group is amazing, not very deep though. Your DL is pretty good and a decent secondary but you always get the job done. Unknown players always step up and do something for you. You lost Bryant McFadden and Larry Foote thats about it.

2. Washington Redskins: Albert Haynesworth and Brian Orakpo were added in. You already have London-Fletcher, Griffin, Carter, McIntosh in your front 7. Your secondary you have two good safeties and three good corners. Your in a tough divison but even with it your going to be a good defense.

3. New York Giants: You have the #1 DL, Osi, Canty, Bernard, and Tuck starting... even your backups of Kiwanuka and Robbins are good. Antonio Peirce and new additon Michael Boley will stop if anything gets through the front 4. Aaron Ross is developing at corner and Kenny Phillips is at safety. You look like you'll be good this year on D.

4. San Diego Chargers: Shawne Merriman and Antonio Cromartie is as well. Last year Cooper and Shaun Phillips stepped up with Merriman gone now hes back helps them. Castillo and Jamal Williams will stop up front. They drafted OLB/DE Larry English in the draft which will provided depth. Jammer and Cason along with the Cro are a good CB group. Safeties are a little weak.

5. New York Jets: Kerry Rhodes is a good safety. You added Bart Scott, Jim Leonhard , Lito Shepard, and Rex Ryan (Coach). Ghoston needs to step up and you already have Jenkins, Pace, and Ellis going good. Darelle Revis stepped up big last year. I think put all these things together and you look pretty great on the D.

6. Tennessee Titans: The Titans lost Big Al. But they now have 5 DT who are fighting for his spot, so now you rotate them in and your set. Keith Bulluck, David Thornton, and underrated Stephen Tulloch are one of the best LB group. Javon Kearse and Kyle Vanden Bosch provided Vetran EXP on the DL. Young gunners Jacob Ford and Jason Jones will learn. Courtland Finnegan is one of the best corners along with a realllly good safety group in Griffin and Hope.

7. Baltimore Ravens: Lost Bart Scott, Leonhard, and your D/C. You added 3 decent safties to add in with Samari Rolle. Ray Lewis is always good. But he's all you really have besides Terrell Suggs in the LB group. Your DL looks good. You'll have a good defense but not as good as last year. Ray Lewis is getting old.

8. New Orleans Saints: You added vet Darren Sharper and Malcom Jenkins. Sedrick Ellis is coming into his second year. You have an ok DL and your LB look good, (Vilma). Also added Jabari Green add him in with your all ready good secondary. You had the 4th best rush d last year, but 16th pass.

9. Minnesota Vikings: This depends what happens to the Williams thats why your so low. If you lose them for 3+ games thats bad. You have  Jared Allen hes one of the best DE. Henderson is improving. Winfield and Griffin are looking good.... Lost Sharper though.

10. Chicago Bears: Urlacher is great. Briggs is too. You also have depth in LB with Hillenmyer, Pisa T., and Marcus Freeman. Your DL always does good. DJ Moore needs to be good because your secondary doesn't look amazing. Top 10 Defense barely.

Just missed the cut: Cowboys, Eagles, and Pats

NFL Power Rankings

1. New England Patriots - Two words. Tom Brady, and hes baaaack. He's not alone either, welcome vetrans Fred Taylor and Joey Galloway to the offense. Along with a younger defense in the draft. They had 4 2nd round picks. Also drafted 4 DTs in the draft. Bodden, Springs, and Butler will do fine at corner. The Pats are the real deal... again.

2. Philadelphia Eagles - Amazing Offseason. Jason Peters, Ellis Hobbs then Maclin and McCoy in the draft. Dont forget 5 rounders Ingram and Harris. The Eagles are going to have a deep dynamic offense and a solid defense. Tough divison.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers - You rebuilt your O-Line a little. But you lost McFadden, Washington, and Foote. Hopefully your secondary can step it up. Last year rookies Mendenhall and Sweed are looking for playing time. Big Ben is getting better every year.

4. Indianapolis Colts - You lost Dungy, thats big. But your still ok. You brought in Donald Brown he'll do good. If you can establish some running game and your defense stays healthy your set. I mean you have Peyton Manning.

5. New York Giants - Plaxico is gone. Theres about 5 WR who can play, someone must step it up. Nicks and Hixon look good. Jacobs is a beast. Your DL with Osi back is going to be amazing. Michael Boley is going to be good. Your front 7 is amazing. If Eli can put it together and get some WR involved your going to be set.

6. Arizona Cardinals - Your team last year + McFadden (cb) and Beanie Wells. You lost very little. No matter what Anquan does your going to be one of the best offenses.

7. Baltimore Ravens - Your looking good. Your lost Bart Scott. Oher was a good pick. Bringing in LJ Smith, Domonique Foxworth, Chris Carr, and Fabian Washington brings depth into your secondary. Flaccos in his 2nd year. Ray is getting older, is he the same Ray? Your looking like another strong season in Baltimore.

8. Tennessee Titans - Haynesworth < 100Mil. Theres 4 DT that are going to rotate and do better than Haynesworth. LenDale White and Chris Johnson will dominate. An improved passing game with the additons of Kenny Britt, Jared Cook, and Nate Washington will help. One of the best OL around. If the defense can dominate like it has the last few years look for a deep(er) playoff run.

9. Atlanta Falcons - Ryan will be lights out. Turner also. Improved OL. Young defensive players added but your secondary is looking a little weak now. But I still think your going to great in the NFC.

10. San Deigo Chargers - Two main guys are back from injuries Shawne Merriman and LaDainian Tomlinson if they can return wow. Your drafted Larry English who is very dynamic. What happened to Cromartie last year. If your players play how expected look for a completely different season that last year.

11. Chicago Bears - Jay Cutler is going to be great. Hes happy. He has some targets : Hester, Davis, Iglesias, Olsen, and Bennett (college bud). Recently signee Pisa Tinoisamoa adds an even stronger LB. Your defense is always solid. Forte will be great. Your looking good not to mention your have the easiest schedule.

12. New Orleans Saints - Drew Brees is great. Its up to Reggie to show what he can do if not Pierre Thomas might take over. As for defense you added Malcom Jenkins and Jabari Green and dont forget vetran safety Darren Sharper. You look like a surprise team this year but your on my radar.

13. Carolina Panthers - Everyone has the Panthers as a top 5 team, I don't see it. Yes theres DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart which everyone thinks is the best rushing game well its actually #4. Delhomme is 34/35 now. Steve Smith is great, Mushy is old. Jarrett is looking better. Lost a couple players in your secondary and Julius Peppers wants out. Your LBs are solid. I still see you as a good team but not an elite team.

14. Minnesota Vikings - Adrian Peterson is amazing, duh. Your WR are getting great Berrian, Harvin, Rice, and Wade the bad thing is you have Rosenfels who is too much of a risktake and a wannabe Vick in Jackson. Sharpers gone and can the Williams (DTs) stay out of trouble? Lucky that you have the 2nd easiest schedule.

15. Washington Redskins - Improved Defense with Haynesworth and Brian Orakpo along with a great secondary all around. Portis is always good. You have some young targets in Thomas, Kelly, Mitchell, and Davis can they step up. Hows Jason Campbell going to do or does Todd Collins get another chance... Colt Brennan? Chase Daniel?

16. Dallas Cowboys - T.O. is gone. Roy Williams and Witten its up to you. Romo can you even play without T.O? Barber / Felix are going to be great. Besides DeMarcus Ware your defense is weak.

17. Houston Texans - Your young, and doing better every year. Mario Williams, Steve Slaton, Andre Johnson, DeMarco Ryans and company are good. Your in a tough divison and your schedule is hard. Going to make a playoff push. Give it one more year and your set.

18. Green Bay Packers - Ryan Grant might be a fluke. Aaron Rodgers did pretty good. Im still not set on GB doing well. With the Vikings and Bears improving so much can you keep up?

19. Buffalo Bills - T.O. = N.O. He's going to do fine. But Lee Evans dont say a word all year. If you catch a ball your going to get yelled at. Lynch will miss some games. And your defense stepped up last year and will again. Look for a late playoff push.

20. Seattle Seahawks - Matt Hasselbeck is always hurt. Your defense has got a leader now in Aaron Curry. Your looking better but with an older OL and a QB whos always hurt its still going to be hard.

21. New York Jets - New Coach thats all defense. Sanchez I think is a bust. He started like 15 college games and had 3 good ones. Coles is gone, Thomas Jones will do alright. Bart Scott and Gholston might work well. Need some time tho.

22. Miami Dolphins - Wildcat + Pat White o my. To bad the DCs know its coming. And you have the hardest schedule. Your going to have trouble this year.

23. San Francisco 49ers - QB is wack. Gore is always hurt. Crabtree will do ok, Vernon Davis STEP UP. Your defense is looking nice tho.

24. Kansas City Chiefs - Cassell is going to make changes. Larry Johnson/Charles can run. Dwayne Bowe to throw too. You had a young offense and brought in two vetran LB, Thomas and Vrabel.

25. Cincinnati Bengals - OchoCinco is going to be mad. You added Coles. Your defense is still wack. Palmer is always hurt, and whos your RB?

26. Denver Broncos - You got help you needed on defense. But then you trade Dre Bly. You got a young D. And your starting QB is Orton, and is Marshall going to stay out of trouble. Moreno will be great.

27. Jacksonville Jaguars - MJD is now your #1 back, thats alot of wear and tear. Torry Holt is old and is not the savor. Garrard isn't so hot. Your defense is just ok. Also in a tough divison.

28. Oakland Raiders - DHB + McFadden + JaMarcus = Young Core. You have some offense, your D is slacking beside the best corner on the league. You'll sneak some wins.

29. Detriot Lions - Your going to win, finally. Lets name some new players: Stafford, Pettigrew, Delmas, Jon Jansen (OL), Bryant Johnson, Ronald Curry, Julian Peterson, Larry Foote, Phillip Buchanon,Eric King, and Anthony Henry. Along with the freak, Calvin and Ernie Sims your rebuilding starts out well. Good luck Jim Schwartz.

30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Your in so much trouble you can't even sell your season tickets. Your GM is already talking about blackouts. You have 3 aveage QBs and 3 average RBs. Winslow is still unproven. And you let go of Derrick Brooks. Going to be a long season.

31. St.Louis Rams - Re-Building Stage is now. Your have Marc Injury Bulger. Rebuilding your oline. You release Holt, Pisa, Pace. You've added some young keys. Steven Jackson will still have a decent year. But you wont win more than 3 games.

32. Cleveland Browns - You dont even know your QB. Braylon Edwards and Shaun Rodgers want(ed)out. No longer have a TE. Jamal Lewis is getting old. I can't even name 3 players on your D.
