I have a strange and hard-to-describe relationship with Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column over at SI.com.

I’ve been reading it forever — I clearly remember following it when I was working a temp job back in that long-gone year 2000, when the column was “only” 2,200 words, rather than the 7,000ish it tends to run these days — but I haven’t been enjoying it nearly as much for the last couple of years. I suppose at this point it’s more of a habit than anything else, that and a way to make sure that I understand the (language warning!!!!!) parodies of King’s writing over at Kissing Suzy Kolber.

Today would be one of those days. The short version is this: in his column today, his first stab at ranking the teams for the 2009 season, King has the Redskins projected at 23rd in the league.
