NFL kickoff is just days away, and the 2016 season has produced much more uncertainty than in years past. The defending Super Bowl champs lost their top two quarterbacks this off-season, and now rely on a second-year player with one career NFL snap. Then you have the Patriots, who look more powerful than ever - save for the fact that their future Hall-of-Fame quarterback is on the shelf until October.
So, who are the NFL haves and who are the have-nots? Find out below in WBOB's Preseason Power Rankings (organized into divisions named for football movies ascending from great to awful)

Hello to all PawSox fans. Welcome to another edition of the PawSox Weekly Notebook, the guide for all those who want to know what’s going on with their favorite local baseball team. There are some good news and some bad news. Bad news is that the PawSox’s playoff were eliminated from playoff contention. The good news, however, is that the team still has a chance to finish over .500 after last year’s 59-85 (.410) record. It may be a hard pill to swallow for the McCoy faithful, but sometimes you gotta take your lumps now before you can enjoy any future success.
