You should make that last line your sig. Excellent point.

Re: King's "MM QB"

The Patriots were ranked no.1 last year. I don't even know where the Giants were ranked. I'd rather be last years Giants than Patriots. Who cares?

The skins are front page on every sports webpage out there. Guess what? When you win games you start getting a little respect. We really haven't won many big games in the last 10 years. Until now.
And how many has Dallas won? Aren't they on a 12-year playoff winless streak? I'm just sick of the seemingly God-given right these bums get, especially when we just beat them in their house.

Like I said in the original post, I know it's meaningless rankings from a scrub writer. I just wonder what his justification is, considering the two impressive wins the Skins just had. Not to mention they've also played and beaten some of the other very good offenses in football.

Dallas is coming off a loss to us and a sloppy, unimpressive win over an awful Bengals team. I just wonder what his "criteria" for these rankings is. Sure Dallas is very good on paper, I just think they also need to start winning some big games before they get anointed all season long again.

There's nothing contrived here. King has had it out for the Redskins and it's fans for years. He mentioned the 4th and 2 to end the game as something he liked? Wow. That's introspective, cutting edge journalism right there. Honestly, I was upset that he was showing the skins any love at all. Peter King gives the AP a bad name and needs to stick to his little fantasy columns. And please don't compare Redskins fans to Patriot fans. A few of us here are on a little bit of a rush from the unexpected level of success and that leads to a lot of vocal objectivity.

Re: King's "MM QB"

I am still confused about what the point of getting worked up about this is. He didn't rank us 15th. He gave us what I think is a generally fair ranking. I may quibble some with the rankings but in general they are decent. And if they weren't? Why care? What matters is that we win games. The number of games won is the number that matters. What some know nothing sports columnist says is entirely irrelevant.

Why are we constantly looking for this contrived (that word again) validation?
