Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/powerranking

well in espn's offseason power rankings, they have the skins 29th out of 32 nfl teams, and last in the NFC east.

if there is any solace though the chargers were 32nd in last years offseason rankings and look how well that turned out for them.

any thoughts?

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

The way these power rankings work, if we win the SB, I bet we still wouldn't be #1 in a lot of these polls.

We need to be at least 9-7 to avoid the trade from becoming terrible.

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

I know I say this every pre-season but THIS SHOULD BE OUR BREAKOUT SEASON!

If the D maintains its top 3 status and the offense plays to 10 then we'll be set.

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

Well last year we were ranked like 10th or higher and some said that we would win the superbowl. Also im confused why Detriot is so high, they finished the season like 2-8.

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

F- Polls. I put no stock in polls whatsoever........especially polls that come out months before the first preseason game is even played. Last year's Chargers are the perfect example of why these things just don't matter.

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

They have the F-ing DOLPHINS above us! Yeah, screw that poll. Not based on a lot of thought. Cowboys at 12?! Bah. They're predicting us to be worse off than last year. I don't buy that at all.

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

Seriously. It's just to have SOMETHING to say. Put out a power poll after the first preseason game...

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

Matty, how do you expect the skins O to move up to a top 10 when they have done almost nothing to improve?

As much as I hate to say it, I think this poll is closer to being correct than being wrong. I doubt the skins will be 29th at the end of the season but I will be amazed if they can get to 15.

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

This is where we should be ranked... in May. We had, though not a disasterous offseason, certainly not one that made strides of improvement over last year's squad - and last year's squad left us picking 9th.

I don't think we are the third worst team in the league - far from it. But for the purposes of the May 2005 Power Rankings, we are what we are.

Re: Offseason Power Rankings - # 29

My first reaction was to be pissed off, but the more I think about it, fine, let them put the Skins dead last! That way when we end up with a decent record and end up in the top 10, they all have to eat crow...and LOTS of it!!!
Seriously, when was the last time the Redskins dropped in power rankings after FA and the draft...at least this substantially? Watch teams like the Vikings and Cowboys that have "made great strides" this offseason flounder in mediocrity due to lack of chemistry. They are like this years Redskins as far as "winning" the offseason.
Our offseason has had a real "team" type of feel to it. No huge stars, but a lot of team-oriented guys that will make our team better. I think our special teams will be very good, which may make the difference in more than a couple games. I also think our offense will be improved....not super explosive, but we'll at least be able to put some points on the board. So if our D is anywhere close to last season, we should end up around 10-6...no worse than 9-7...
