And You Thought ESPN Was Bad......

This guy from CBS Sportsline gives us a 19th power ranking the choking Saints and Jags are rated ABOVE the Redskins ????????????????

http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/story/7652074

POWER RANKINGS
Current Team Previous
1 New England Patriots 1
They still will push for a Super Bowl spot, but it's so tough to repeat in this era, so they won't. They'll get close, though.
2 Indianapolis Colts 3
It's hard to believe, but the Colts will be better on offense. The defense only has to make small improvements to get to Jacksonville.
3 Minnesota Vikings 17
The more I watch this team, the more I like it. They will be so explosive on offense, and the young defensive players look ready to take the next step.
4 Philadelphia Eagles 4
Even with Terrell Owens and Jevon Kearse on board, they still have corner questions, and we still wonder if Donovan McNabb is accurate enough. Yeah, I just wrote that.
5 Baltimore Ravens 7
If the passing game comes around -- big if -- then they can push for the Super Bowl. Ray Lewis can will this team to 11 victories, even with Deion "The Toe" Sanders playing at 37.
6 Denver Broncos 2
The heat is on Mike Shanahan, but he has the makings of a nice club -- division-winning nice. The defense will decide if this is a Super team.
7 Kansas City Chiefs 6
So much offense still, but so little difference on defense. They changed coordinators, but the talent is the same, and it won't be enough to get to the Super Bowl.
8 Seattle Seahawks 5
Trendy picks usually don't pan out. Plus, they will be 0-2 after two games, losing at New Orleans and at Tampa Bay. Climbing out of that hole is tough, even in an easy division.
9 New Orleans Saints 10
This talented team is mature now and ready to take a major step forward. The key is keeping Aaron Brooks on top of his game.
10 Tennessee Titans 9
As long as Steve McNair is flinging footballs, they'll compete for a playoff spot. Plenty of youngsters have to come up big on defense.
11 Carolina Panthers 8
One-year wonder? Maybe not, but they won't repeat because of offensive line woes.
12 Green Bay Packers 14
Brett Favre, Ahman Green and the offense will be fun to watch. Youth on defense has to come up big.
13 Jacksonville Jaguars 15
Will compete for a playoff spot but might be a year away. Pass rush is the major worry.
14 St. Louis Rams 13
Catch me, I'm falling. That's the Rams under Mike Martz. This team is in big trouble on the offensive line, and their coach might be as a result of it.
15 Pittsburgh Steelers 19
They say they're going back to the roots: Running it and playing good defense. But can they win that way anymore?
16 Cincinnati Bengals 21
This is another team that might be a year away. Carson Palmer will have some growing pains -- it's only natural -- which will hold this team back some.
17 New York Jets 24
This could be a surprise team, as long as Chad Pennington stays healthy. The improved speed on defense is noticeable.
18 Dallas Cowboys 11
Can a 40-year-old Vinny Testaverde take this team to the playoffs? If the line blocks, he can. That's a big if.
19 Washington Redskins 20
We love the offense, but who is going to rush the passer? Might be in store for a lot of shootouts.
20 Buffalo Bills 22
Will Drew Bledsoe bounce back to his 2002 form, or is he done? If it's the former, they can be a playoff team.
21 Miami Dolphins 16
Too many setbacks on offense and too big a question at quarterback. The defense isn't that good.
22 Atlanta Falcons 12
We like the offense a lot as long as Michael Vick is playing, but there are too many holes on defense. They will be fun to watch.
23 Oakland Raiders 25
The 3-4 defense should be better, but does the offense really scare anybody? Who's the feature runner? Quarterback?
24 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 18
This team is a mish-mash, and it's doubtful Jon Gruden can mold it together, although if anybody can, he can.
25 Houston Texans 23
Will make a step forward, but it might not show up because of the tough division. Another 2005 team to watch.
26 Detroit Lions 27
Trendy pick as a possible playoff team by many, but not here. They still have too many young players who have to mature -- especially on offense.
27 Chicago Bears 28
It's going to be a tough go for new coach Lovie Smith in his first season. There isn't enough talent to be a playoff team.
28 New York Giants 26
Kurt Warner might want to up that life insurance policy playing behind that line. The defense is nothing great, either.
29 Cleveland Browns 29
A playoff team two years ago, they are in regress mode. And Butch Davis got a contract extension?
30 San Francisco 49ers 31
Look at the bright side, 49ers fans: At least they aren't overspending anymore. As if you really cared now that your team is near the bottom.
31 San Diego Chargers 32
LaDainian Tomlinson: A diamond in a trash bin. So sad he plays for this group, but at least he got paid.
32 Arizona Cardinals 30
Dennis Green to the rescue? Really? Not with this talent.

Why Not

As die-hard fans we always think that we are the best team in the NFL. Hell for the past 11 years I've been preaching to all my friends and non-redskins friends that we're gonna go 14-2 and win the superbowl. But guess what we've had a whole bunch of 500 seasons and a couple of 4 and 3 win seasons. Think about it 19 is pretty good for us, we probably would be ranked 150 if the ol'ball coach was still coaching.

But being a die-hard I still stink we're gonna go 14-2 and win the superbowl!

Move Us Up!

Ahead of the 'roid's, Jets, and Bungles! The order of the rest up above is not quite right either!

How can you trust a poll that says the #1 team won't win the super bowl? If you don't think they're good enough to win it all, then they shouldn't be #1.

As for the Skins ranking, I'd rather climb than fall.

It seems like everyone thinks our defense won't have the ability to hold. I feel our defense will be the cornerstone of our success.

The only thing that is surprising about this rating is that the Redskins are as HIGH as they are. Prisco, the main voice of SportsHine has been a Redskin hater for years. Ever since Snyder hired Gibbs he has come up with one explanation after another as to why Gibbs will fail. The poor guy's brains are buried in fat cells - very little can get in or out.

To put the Vikings above Philadelphia is almost as crazy as having the Ravens and Broncos above the Chiefs. This guys a tube.

The funny thing about their assessment of us at #19 is that they see the opposite of what we've seen. Anyone who's watched our preseason games can attest to the fact that our first team defense has been by far the most impressive unit, not our offense. The first team defense didn't surrender a TD the entire pre-season even after missing starters like Lavar and Barrow.

These rankings just aren't credible.
