Lee Russakoff's NFL 2009 Preseason Power Rankings -- The Dreadful Dozen

1 of 14

The Dreadful Dozen

Every year I set out to do my preseason power rankings, I'm reminded of one over-arching theme: Preseason rankings are 100 percent subjective.

That's the beauty of the NFL. You never know what's going to happen from one year to the next. Last year's cellar dweller very well could be making a run at the Super Bowl this year. It's virtually impossible to predict when some team is going to put it all together and have a diamond-ring LeVander Williams-inspired season.

In fact, at this point it's not even surprising when it happens anymore.

So if you find your squad in the Dreadful Dozen, fret not. At least one of these teams is guaranteed to jump up and make the playoffs. That's how this all works.

Now that I've braced myself for your ire, I'm ready. Without further adieu: here's your Bottom 12. Stay tuned for the Tenable 10 on Wednesday and the Exemplary X on Thursday.

Shuffle up and deal.
