Line up and take your weekly hate dose from the media.

Worst 3-0 team in NFL history.

That's a pretty strong statement, worst 3-0 team in NFL history?

C'mon now.

SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

According to SI's Don Banks, we are the worst 3-0 team ever.

"I'm going out on a limb and labeling the Washington Redskins the worst 3-0 team in NFL history. And that's coming off their best game of the season by far."Link

I'm not posting this to bring up the media bias or anything but instead to raise a question. Is there another 3-0 team in NFL history that could be considered worse to refute such charges? (Obviously I don't think we are the worst, but is there a team that ended up 4-12 or 5-11 after a 3 win start?)

Any info would be great. I'll look around too.

I can't wait to become the worst 4-0 team of all time!!!

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you suck at writing. And like Thiesman's good leg said (still awating word from the rest of Theisman), I cant wait to be the worst 4-0 team next week.

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

puhleez - there have been several bad teams that started out 3-0 - take the 2002 New Orleans saints for example. This is a cliched catch phrase - they say this about one of unbeatens every year. Why would anyone take Don Banks seriously - he's an even bigger clown than Dr Z...know why? Cuz Dr Z is more about trying to be funny than hardcore football insight. Don Banks writes (what he thinks are) serious articles on football. He simply has no credibility. Name one sports show you've ever heard Don Banks quoted in. Nuff said

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say Banks is the worst sports writer ever. And the Skins are going to make him eat those words.

Who cares I will gladly be worst 3-0 team than best 0-3 team. Whether you win by an inch or a mile winning is winning.

I saw this article coming from a mile away. It was just a question of who would write the article first. It doesn't faze me in the least. Unless we have BCS ratings in the NFL, I'll just take the Ws!

Re: SI's Banks: "The Worst 3-0 Team Ever"

One thing that surprised me (and I don't think the author of that article noticed) is that the Skins dominated that game, except for about half of the fourth quarter. If you take a look at the first half time of possession, seeing over 20 minutes for the Skins and single digits for the Seahawks really says something.

I think we are real contenders this year, but I think that these articles will keep coming until we pull off a really convincing win, and, hey, even Dr. Z has starting giving us some credit...
