Florio really is an idiot. Jets at #2? Saints drop to 7th? And his sentence on the Redskins sounds like it was written by a bitter Falcons' fan.

Three weeks are in the books, so it's time to put together the meaningless but, based on the numbers, indispensable look at how the 32 teams currently stack up.

Sure, the NFL settles their business on the field. Then again, the playoffs don't start until January.

Until then, we'll give it the old college try.

So check where you team has landed, and be prepared to complain loudly if you disagree -- and to remain silent if you don't.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 2; 3-0): Somewhere in Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger is cackling and rolling a blunt. (Actually, that's an exaggeration. We don't know whether he's cackling.)

2. New York Jets (No. 6; 2-1): Braylon Edwards didn't shave his beard; he swallowed it in order to soak up some of the booze. (Allegedly.)

3. Indianapolis Colts (No. 8; 2-1): Week One notwithstanding, the Colts look as potent as they were in 2009.

4. Baltimore Ravens (No. 5; 2-1): The wheels could come off my projected Super Bowl winner in Pittsburgh on Sunday.

5. Tennessee Titans (No. 9; 2-1): It became easier for the Titans to rebound from the butt-kicking they took against the Steelers once the Titans realized that most teams will take a butt-kicking from the Steelers this year.

6. Atlanta Falcons (No. 17; 2-1): The biggest win of Matt Ryan's career came at a perfect time.

7. New Orleans Saints (No. 1 last week; 2-1): By the end of the day Tuesday, Scott Fujita's "fat punk kicker" label for Garrett Hartley may be only 66.6 percent accurate.

22. Washington Redskins (No. 15; 1-2): No man has ever gotten more out of two Super Bowl wins from a team built by someone else and held together by salary cap violations.

Ouch.

The ranking itself doesn't bother me but man, that was harsh.

It doesn't have much merit, considering Shanahan was responsible for some of the key components of that offense.

TD - drafted 1995
Rod Smith - UDFA 1995
Ed McCaffrey - FA 1995
(the 3 top non-K scorers in 1997 and 3 of top 4 in 1998)
