Re: Skins ranked 25th in Foxsports.com 1st season power rankings

I think the rankings for week 1 are just about right for the Redskins. We were 6-10 and the preseason doesn't mean a damn thing. Time to prove it when things matter and then the respect will come.

Re: Skins ranked 25th in Foxsports.com 1st season power rankings

But looking at it logically, 6-10 last year with improvements in almost all positions does not amount to a ranking in the mid to high 20's.

Do I lose sleep over it? Of course not. But if I were to make an unbiased ranking the Skins surely do not fall that low.

Most national media people don't do enough homework to recognize that fact.

Unhappy Re: Skins ranked 25th in Foxsports.com 1st season power rankings

I think the Skins have the least amount of coverage of any team in the NFL. I don't know why people hate/dismiss them so much. I used to think it was because they haven't played well in so long....but neither have a lot of teams. Anyone have any idea?

From the media's perspective, it's like this. We didn't go out and sign any big names this offseason, so how do they know we got better? In fact, by signing a bunch of marginal role players and drafting for a lot of positions that aren't quarterback, which was the main hole on the team, it's a sign that we've gotten worse.

And that's why:

We don't know for sure that we've made improvements. We made changes, but not necessarily improvements. We'd like to think they did. But the only way to know for sure is on the field

You have to earn your media love. I don't know why so many people are interested in the media telling us how great we are before we have proven anything. The Redskins are a historic franchise with a lot of fans...if they start to win consistently the media love will come in buckets.

Re: Skins ranked 25th in Foxsports.com 1st season power rankings

What have we done to deserve any media attention other than have a QB battle between two guys who excite no one outside of Redskins Nation? Sure the drama is gone, but we have done nothing to generate a positive buzz?

We are a 6-10 team with no QB until we prove otherwise. Until we prove otherwise, it should be expected for us to be ranked in the bottom third of the league.

Its those media idiots who have us ranked as one of the 3 worst teams or getting only 3 wins that deserve to be treated with contempt b/c those media guys have clearly done no research (comparing strength of schedule, looking at roster changes, factoring in 2nd year of players in system, etc.).

But you know what? I don't care where they rank us. I just care what the final score is.

So what you guys are saying is that the only way to measure improvement as a team is on the field? Interesting theory, but I won't believe it until the media backs that statement up.

What does the final score have to do with anything? It's all about what the power rankings say, those are the true measure of a team's worth.

Good point. I was drinking preseason koolaid.

Also, I wasn't really trying to pick on the national media but I guess it came off that way. I recognize that it is difficult to do detailed research on every single team through four preseason games.
