ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

Dallas is still grossly overrated, but what else is new?

NFL Power Rankings Week 2 - National Football League - ESPN

One could make a case for the Skins being a few spots higher based on some of the piss poor performances of some of the teams ahead of them, but overall I think #14 is fair enough for now.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

People still think they won that game against the Redskins. I find it funny that the 49'ers are a spot above the Seahawks after the ass kicking they got.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

The Caps have spoiled me. I'm use these days towards looking at the first 3 spots to find my team.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

I don’t understand how GB can be so high and Philly so low.
Id switch the Colts and Texans
Cowboys should be somewhere around 10-15
Jets should be around 8 or 9
Giants should be closer to the top 10
Seattle should be ahead of 49ers
The Chargers and Chiefs should be around 15-20

I think its fair where we are placed. It seems like our defense is good, but every team is going to be taking shots at Doughty until Kareem gets better and our offense is still trying to figure itself out. But this has to be the worst power rankings ive seen from ESPN, this is in the same league as yahoo’s power rankings.

I think PFT’s power rankings is pretty good:

I was in the 90's. The Wizards (John Wall) and the Orioles (17-10 in August) are promising, but hockey and football are easily my favorite sports. I wish I loved baseball, it's always on.

Agree, those are a joke. I do think the Skins are a bit high since they didnt really appear to have any offense.

I agree. Were the situation opposite, we would have dropped like 12 spots... but seriously anywhere from 12-18 I think is fair.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

well, for an offense that only scored 6 points, I think we are pretty much lucky to be 1-0. If we lay it on Houston now, we better be top 8? And I mean LAY it on them.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

I think at this point I don't care much. middle of the road seems about right for us. We'll know better after game 4 who is for real and who isn't. What the Skins need to do is capitalize on the issues the other teams in our division have with injuries and poor play and get some games on the them. I am extremely interested in what we do this weekend. It will say a lot about our team. I think right now Houston is in a better place than Dallas.

I enjoy being under the radar. The Redskins never get any respect anyway, so I will take #14.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

Those rankings change so much week-to-week during the season that they don't mean much now.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

Yeah this isn't an issue. We're ranked 14th, which is fine by me. Anybody check out how they broke it down? Clayton ranked us 8th, two of the other guys ranked us 16th lol. Idc where we are ranked as long as we get it done on gameday.

Re: ESPN week 2 Power Rankings

Hey guys! New to the board as a poster been reading for awhile thought it was about time for me to join and chime in.

Not sure what the real point of power rankings is after week 1 anyway. As we see in college football and basketball rankings mean very little especially early in the season. If they were to do such "Power Rankings" I would wait until at least week 4 that we have an idea of how everyone looks.

That being said, arguing any ranking at this point really doesn't mean a whole lot. But, for the sake of the argument I guess the two that I have a problem with is Houston at #7 and the Falcons at #13. I know Houston had a big win this week against a Super Bowl contender, but the Colts lost there best defensive player early on and did have enough time to adjust schematically to patch it up. As for the Falcons, not sure why they were so high in the first place. They seem like a .500 team to me and for them to still be in the top half after losing to a Pittsburgh team that didn't have their starting quarterback seems awkward.

Nevertheless, I think the ranking of the Skins is appropriate. If they turn out a similar defensive performance against the Texans then We should be vaulted into the top 10. Either way, the offense will need to produce more if we are to be a serious contender.
