Power rankings time! Pete Prisco's got his out and what would a Wednesday be without some lively debate about where teams rank before the season even starts? And with our columnists dispatched to three specific locations, we talk about breaking the NFL into three catagories (good/bad/ugly) -- where does your team fall?

Also, A.J. Hawk, linebacker for the defending champion Green Bay Packers, joins the podcast. We talk about the Packers flying under the radar, if they're motivated by the Eagles being a "dream team," how he's embracing a role as a leader and what he thinks about HGH testing.

"I think it's awesome that they're going to start testing for HGH," Hawk told CBSSports.com. "I think it's a great thing for the game. I think baseball showed throughout their whole time that if you don't test for something, guys are going to do it. I have no idea -- I've obviously never watched anyone or seen anyone do it, but I'm not stupid. I know it's going on.

"They can take my blood every single day if they want. I won't oppose that ever."

So, yeah, excellent stuff -- we also talk about his work with Gatorade on their "Beat the Heat" campaign, on the 10-year anniversary of Korey Stringer's death. (Go to NFL.com/TrainingCamp to download the free Heat Safety Kit.)

Ryan and I also discuss whether the recent Miami scandal will have any effect on current NFL players and talk about Aaron Maybin jumping ship from the Bills to the Jets.

Listened to the first 10 of this worthless podcast and it had absolutely no direction. Don't wast your time I was hoping to listen to AJ Hawk but there is no telling when they would play the interview.
