Yahoo Sports is ranking NFL teams by position group. Buffalo’s defensive backfield had a very respectable ranking, though I may have them slightly higher.
Yahoo’s Jason Cole ranked them 11th, and looking at the teams he had ahead of them I can understand where he’s coming from. It’s hard to put a secondary from a non-playoff team much higher, but I think collectively they’re a better group than the Raiders (10th).
And though I have great respect for Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu, I don’t know if one guy is enough to vault secondaries that benefit largely from a premier pass rush in Baltimore and Pittsburgh into the top five or six when they didn’t log as many INTs as the Bills last year.
Especially Pittsburgh (12), which didn’t even have half the intercepts that Buffalo had (28).
