Landmark Power Poll


by C.K. Rairden
Landmark columnist

The bad news for the Chiefs is that they are down to # 25 in the Power Poll. The good news is that they play our cellar dweller, the Washington Redskins.

The two rising stars of the poll—San Diego and Cincinnati will battle to see which team goes 3-0. The Baltimore Ravens dropped out of the top 10 and are looking for Trent Dilfer’s new phone number in Seattle.


1) 92 RAMS—Number 1 ‘til they lose.
2) 91 BRONCOS—Can score at will.
3) 91 COLTS—The ‘99 Rams.
4) 90 DOLPHINS—Jay Fiedler dives for the endzone—touchdown!
5) 89 PACKERS—Sleeper. RB Ahman Green could have a breakout season. (week one write up continues)

17) 85 VIKINGS—Infighting.
18) 85 TITANS—0-2? What happened?
19) 84 PANTHERS—Rebuilding with a 29-year old rookie QB, and it is working.
