NFL Power Rankings: Florida teams end season in bottom half

Scott Cunningham

All three teams from the Sunshine State finished in the bottom half of the SB Nation NFL power rankings. What does Joel Thorman have to say about how these teams finished?

The 2012 NFL regular season has come to a close. None of the three NFL teams from Florida reached the playoffs this season. Their final rankings are set on SB Nation by Joel Thorman. All three teams finished in the bottom half of the power rankings list this season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ranked the highest out of the three Florida teams at No. 19, up four spots from the previous week. Thorman says that the team should be concerned with how they finished up the season:

If there is such thing as momentum from season-to-season, then losing five of their last six this season is going to be a problem.

The Miami Dolphins finished one spot behind the Buccaneers at No. 20, down one spot from the previous week. Thorman says that this team's future is very encouraging. According to Thorman, the only thing that the Dolphins could use next season is some consistency:

The arrow is pointing up. Just need some consistency. You can't lose to the Titans one week and then beat the Seahawks the next.

Finally the Jacksonville Jaguars narrowly avoided landing in the basement for the season, finishing at No. 31 ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs. Thorman believes that their search for a new general manager should begin in San Francisco:

San Francisco is a good place to start looking for a new GM.
