We're back! The greatest NFL podcast in the known universe makes its triumphant return from summer hiatus with, what else, a power-rankings countdown. This is the audio companion to the long-running (since before July 4!) power rankings at Shutdown Corner ticking down every single one of the NFL's teams. We consider who's in the top 4 and who's muddling around in the dregs. And, guaranteed, we ranked your team ten spots below where they belonged. Why? Because we hate your team and are biased toward its rival, of course.

For those new to this: this is the Shutdown Corner Podcast, the audio arm of Yahoo Sports' NFL blog. We're here every Tuesday and Friday once the season begins, and we'd love for you to hang with us too. Click on the link below to listen. If you'd like to subscribe, and we heartily recommend you do, go to the iTunes page right here. (The non-iTunes link to subscribe is here.) It's all free, don't cost nothin'.
