According to AFC North blogger James Walker, ESPN is scheduled to release Power Rankings on Tuesday that rank the NFL's best owners, presumably up to the top ten. Does Randy Lerner have any chance to be anywhere close to the top 10?
Ownership with the Pittsburgh Steelers (Rooney family) and Baltimore Ravens (Steve Bisciotti) are highly regarded in NFL circles. Both teams provide stable, winning environments that make for attractive destinations for players and coaches. Will either of these owners make the top 10?
Also, what about the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals? Both Ohio teams have struggled for long stretches and combine for zero playoff wins since 1999, which is the year the Browns returned to the NFL. Will Cleveland owner Randy Lerner or Cincinnati owner Mike Brown make the top 10?
