Yahoo! Preseason POWER Rankings
 
Some more rankings, this time put out by the guys at yahoo (the worst writers in sports). The two experts put us at 29 and 27. It is kinda worthless because they dont even explain their reasons behind it, but I thought a artical furthermore building us out as underdogs would be a nice change from Vick talk (not sure if thats a pun).

I like the fact our guys arnt getting hyped up at all and are gonna have one more thing to pratice and play hard.

Go Skins!

Re: Preseason POWER Rankings
 
I used to care about rankings. It sorta is fun to look at week 8 and after, especially if we are good but right now they mean nothing to me. I rather have position breakdowns so i can discuss something but i have nothign to say to this. Whatever, post pre-season, pre- season opener i'll take a look at power rankings again.

Am I such a homer that these numbers make no sense. I feel like we are not that shitty compared to the Cardinals, Lions, Raiders of the world. We are one year removed from the playoffs and last year we had a ton of injuries. IT is just so fustrating!!!!!!By the end of October I feel like we could be 5-2.

Granted.... we are up and down and do not deserve a high rating, but this is crazy! Once again, the Skins have to have the attitude that it's us against the league.... They all have something to prove!

everybody calm down........... when we get to N.E. we will only have two losses.......and this will make for a great game, and if we win, nah F.T., when we win, then cole and robinson can shove that ranking up their A**

I think what I like the most is Robinson having the Lions at 18. is that a joke?

What do you think? They are supposed to rate us in the top 10? Come on guys the Skins could do really good this year, or if JC and the WR's don't get the job done we could be a subpar .500 team again. Given the teams track record with only 2 playoff wins in the last 14 years, it would be tough to see them making us a solid contender this season. As for injuries? You don't think CP or Springs won't get beat up a gain this season, with us playing 9 playoff teams? Believe me we always seem to get banged up every year and this season will be no exception. Many in this forum don't think Portis will make it past game 8. Me game 10. Springs will miss a few games also in all probability. Bottom line no excuses!!! We can go 7-9 -10-6, maybe 11-5 if Lloyd and Randle El turn it up a notch.

As a guy in Detroit I do think it is a joke. The high ranking is almost exclusively Calvin Johnson. I know this guy is great, but I don't think he is going to be the new TO right away. I might be wrong, but a rookie in the NFL seldom has the impact of making a 3 win team a winner in one season. They do have the horses though on offense with Tatum Bell on board, but their O line sucks!!!!!! They haven't won in DC since 1967. I hope that streak stays alive. IF we lose to the Lions, our season is going to suck!!!!!!!!

Big Deal.

Nobody's even put on pads yet. Who really cares about these polls right now, they are meaningless. Once the season starts, the play will dictate these polls. All they are now is people's imagination running wild with how they see the teams "possibly" stacking up before anything has been proven on the field.

Garbage!

The Cowboys have 0 playoff wins in the last 10 years and they're ranked 13th and 8th. At least the redskins have 2 wins in that period. So basically what I am saying is that Dallas sucks.

i guess if they had us in the top 10 they would be great writers?? when are you people going to realize if the Skins dont win on the field, this is where we are. We have had two, count them, two winning seasons in all most 10 years. We have like the 2nd or 3rd worst losing record in the NFL over that 10 year span. What makes any of you think we dont deserve to be in the bottom 3rd of the league? is it because our payroll is the highest in the NFL year after year?? that we supposedly have all this talent?? if we had all the talent, then we would be in the top 3rd.

lets put this together from someone (the writers) not wearing burgandy & gold shades. Campbell at QB - showed some flashed, but essentially a Rookie - Portis coming off injuries - Betts - was last year the real Betts, or is the real Betts the one that can't stay healty? WR corp - other than Moss, who do we have that can produce?? O-line - losing Dock, putting a career tackle in his spot, how is that going to work out. the defensive line - horrible last year, no changes is it still going to be horrible?? Adding an aging MLB and starting essentially a rookie on the outside - is that going to work out. probably starting a rookie at the safety position. is shawn springs going to stay healthy? There are a ton of questions about this team that puts us in the bottom 3rd of the league. Stop thinking because of all the money we spend that we are automatically good.

Also, can the head coach and offensive coordinator get along and agree on how the team is going to operate??

Will GW "out coach" him self again this year??

I think 25-28 is pretty solid ranking for a team that has this many questions.

Excuse me but WTF does "essentially a rookie" mean. In case you haven't realized Campbell is a [B]3rd year[/B] QB. He has started 7 games. Are you suggesting he is as green as this years first pick Russell? Also, RM is not a rookie either. he started 2 games last year for us. These guys are now veterans. They may not be long time vets but they still have had time to adjust to the nfl game and its not like they have never played a down.
