Redskins can join elite ranks by slaying NFC East beasts

When the regular season opened Sept. 4, the Redskins didn't look completely ready for prime time.

First-year coach Jim Zorn was making his debut as a playcaller. Quarterback Jason Campbell wasn't crisp making his reads and running the offense. The offensive line struggled. Of course, the Redskins were going against the Super Bowl champion Giants, whose defense can make a lot of offenses look offensive.

Re: Redskins can join elite ranks by slaying NFC East beasts

According to the USA Today power rankings, the Cowboys, Giants and Eagles are ranked 1, 2, and 3. The Redskins are ranked 12th. That makes the NFC East the best conference in football. It would be very interesting to see how up the Skins can go if they upset the Girls.

Power rankings as easy as 1-2-3: NFC East owns the NFL - USATODAY.com

You are right, all this ESPN so called experts (every single one) is picking the Cowboys. I would love to see us just win and shut all their F......G mouths!!!!!!!

Re: Redskins can join elite ranks by slaying NFC East beasts

I agree with everyone else that the Cowpokes and Iggles are two top elite teams, but why is everyone praising the Giants??!! They played a mediocre-at-best game against us where home field advantage was HUGE, they beat up the Rams, and then they almost lost to the f'ing Bengals?? I'm one to hate when ppl say "oh they beat the teams that they should be beaten", but the Giants almost lost to a team they should have beaten soundly, and nothing that they've done screams to me that they are a top 5 team.

I totally agree i think the Giants are listed so high since they haven't lost since the Superbowl. I guess they deserve it but in my opinion I don't think they should be that high at all. Absolutely agree with you

Re: Redskins can join elite ranks by slaying NFC East beasts

We're on the outside looking in. John Clayton (captain obvious) is right, if we get the better against our division we will be among the nfl elite.

I totally agree that if Was beats Dallas you'll get a lot of respect specially if it's a dominating victore. even if you lose but the game it's close and back and forward like with philly, you'll get more recognition by the media and the NFL community

Well, we'll see how the elite Giants are when they play us at home, and when they play the Iggles and Cowboys. I mean don't get me wrong, good for the G-men that they win their games (and against 'inferior' opponents), after all it is all about the Ws. But like I said, the pundits talk as though your team won every single one of those games by 5 TDs.

One thing is being a team like the Cowboys, who are dominant, but still have that hump to cross that is the playoffs. But another is being an average team like the Giants last year, who got hot at the right time and caught some breaks to win it all.
