With the 15th pick of the NFL draft in April, the Seahawks chose defensive end Bruce Irvin. Four picks later, the Bears chose defensive end Shea McClellin. If the Bears had picked 15th and the Seahawks 19th, it's possible Irvin would be a Bear and...
1. Packers: The addition of Cedric Benson could give the Packers a dimension they lacked. 2. Giants: They are a little beat up at cornerback, but their pass rush should be able to compensate while they get healthy. 3. Patriots: Questions about the...
Being short has cost Russell Wilson money, not touchdowns. The quarterback from Wisconsin fell to the Seahawks in the third round in the NFL draft and was the sixth quarterback taken because he measures is 5 feet 105/8. He might need a step stool to...

Last week's rankings in parenthesis. 1. Cardinals (1): They have won eight in a row at home. Even if a lot of the victories have been ugly, they still count. 2. Falcons (2): Successful teams always catch breaks. The Falcons caught one Sunday, and then...
