2011 NFL Organizational Rankings: Green Bay Packers No. 1, Arizona Cardinals Not At The Bottom

I'm not sure if writer Adam Schein is joking when he says his "favorite time of year" is when they rank the NFL organizations. I'd say that it is a story that really only has merit now because there is little else in the way of NFL news, due to the dreaded lockout. But the NFL organizations are now ranked, and it should not be a surprise that the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers are the number one ranked organization.

The rankings are based on points given to the owner, quarterback, head coach, front office, coaching staff and intangibles. Green Bay scores no less tan 8.5 points in every category, with a 10 for their quarterback and their intangibles. 

The rest of the top 10 is no surprise. The number two team is the New Orleans Saints and number three are the Pittsburgh Steelers. Four through ten are the Patriots, Eagles, Colts, Giants, Falcons, Ravens and Jets

As for the Arizona Cardinals, they ranked right in the middle at number 16. Their front office netted a nine and Ken Whisenhunt an eight. Schein "generously" gives their QB a four, projecting Kevin Kolb. Otherwise, "it would be a minus-4." Cute. 

The bottom five teams are as follows: the Dolphins, Bengals, Titans, Panthers and...the worst ranked organization in the NFL are the Buffalo Bills
