I don't understand how the Redskins could be ranked so low on the Power Rankings. ...they should have went up in the ranks? idk...

I know, right? You should have seen it back when I was undefeated. I went up to number 2, and then dropped to twenty seven from one loss. I still have barely moved up and down. I think I'm in a good spot. I have three good receivers (can't figure out why Glenn Reynolds is rated only at 71/71), a good rookie QB, a good RB, a solid offensive line (which is hurting on depth a bit), and a good secondary. I think my roster is above average in the league. Maybe it's strength of schedule? I mean, I haven't played a ton of tough teams thus far (have played a couple, though... ;-) ), and my schedule IS kinda cushy going forwards (outside of my division). Maybe it's the fact that my one loss came against Dallas.

That is the one team that Washington NEEDS to beat.

Can't have a rivalry between Dallas and Washington. That would be uncalled for, and possibly racist.

Why would it be racist? We're not the Redskins anymore. We're the Washington Phoenix. There are five perks to this: A) Whenever the Cardinals suck, people in Arizona will love us, since we're named after their capital; B) Whenever the Seahawks suck, people in Washington will love us, since we're named after their state; C) We get to keep our colors; D) No more racism by the cowgirls; E) Finally, we get to be the best team in the NFC East AND the NFC West.

Finally, I'm ranked as a playoff team with an 8-1 record. A knocking-on-the-door playoff team. Wild-card round fodder. This is ridiculous. My team is good. Don't know why it's rated only at #11. That means I'm the lowest rated NFC playoff team.

The power rankings have never made sense.

Not true. We are #12, although I believe that is still too high a ranking for us.

Which team is worse of the two of us, though. Until this week, it was me, apparently. I've been in the high teens or the twenties since week 2. Now, I'm #11.

Also, this is bad news. The fact that there are 2 NFC teams ranked in the bottom 2 of the playoff portion of the power rankings doesn't bode well for the NFC in the playoffs. That means that we have two wild-card fodder teams, instead of one. At least we can rest comfortable knowing that, even though we won't be getting past the wild card - according to these crappy power rankings - we wouldn't have gotten to the super bowl anyways. I don't see Frisco losing for at least 12 more games.

I'm gonna move this thread to Team News, and we can all bicker about my awesomeness there.
