With the Baltimore Ravens' triumph last season, John Harbaugh joined the now-seven-strong list of current Super Bowl-winning coaches -- and denied his brother that honor in the process. Where do the Harbaughs rank on the list of active coaches? And what about those seven men in charge of new teams? Click on the images below to set your rankings!

Last year, Luke Kuechly was NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. The season before? Von Miller. In all, nine of the past 10 winners have been linebackers, meaning the likes of Arthur Brown, Jarvis Jones and Manti Te'o must be favorites, right? Or will someone else -- maybe a certain safety in Arizona -- emerge? Rank the candidates!

Calvin Johnson set the single-season receiving yards record in 2012, while also leading the league in receptions, yards per game and first downs. But he's far from the only elite receiver out there. Ten players had 1,350 receiving yards or more. Nine wideouts hauled in double-digit touchdowns. How do they stack up against each other as the 2013 season nears?

It's almost here: the 2013 NFL season, where the defending Super Bowl champion ... might not make the playoffs? That's the case after the Baltimore Ravens jettisoned numerous players, seemingly opening things up for a host of contenders -- from San Francisco to Denver to Green Bay to New England (and, it should be said, several more). How do these teams stack up? Click on the logos below to set your preseason NFL rankings!

On Friday, ESPN's "First Take" debated whether the Jets should sign Kevin Kolb. The team is reportedly interested in the former Arizona quarterback, who the Cardinals released Friday. Herm Edwards thinks it's time for a change in New York, while Stephen A. Smith thinks that Kolb could excel behind an offensive line that's not a complete disaster. Skip Bayless thinks that, despite the Jets apparently creating a logjam at quarterback, Kolb would be the best fit. What's your take?
