So do we get any respect from the ESPN Power Rankings?

So does anyone think we will get any respect from the ESPN Power Rankings? I suspect since the Redskins are public enemy #1 in the minds of ESPN we will barely break the top 16 even though we are 2-0. They will definitely put the G-men ahead of us, fine with me, just more motivation for the Skins.

Yeah, I agree. I hope they continue to underrate the Redskins because all it is going to do is make them play with a bigger chip on their shoulder.

i think we will be somewhere from 15-23rd, just to be on the safe side.

i think espn will still have us in the lower rungs of their rankings... below a few 1-1 teams too, just wait.

it's better to be underestimated.

I hope they give us none. Let us keep sneaking up on teams.

we'll move up a bit but they'll probably attribute a bunch of it to luck.

"Nice comeback win to break the streak in Dallas but don't expect two TDs in less than 4:00 every week."

some crap like that.

Re: So do we get any respect from the ESPN Power Rankings?

I think our performance for 3 quarters will hurt us, but Dallas was 9th I believe last week, so we should be mid to high teens.

In all honesty, some 1-1 teams have had to play some really good teams. Dallas is pretty good, and the bears are solid, but not teams that were seen as playoff contenders before the season (some said dallas was wildcard, but I never bought into that.)

Hear, hear!

Oh, wait... I write power rankings.

There isn't a smiley that properly conveys my sadness.

I'd still be willing to bet were ranked behind the Cowboys, Eagles, Giants. I dont really care, were 2-0, put us at 32 if you want. It dosent mean anything.

I doubt the ranking will change much as the skins were dead in the water for 56 mins in this game and then make 2 big scores. Except for the last 4 mins I thought the skins O looked as bad as it ever had. Hopefully those 2 big plays are the spark that will light the fire for an offensive inferno.
