Week 11 Power Rankings Roundup

Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.”

This has been the rallying cry of the Redskins players and coaches, who remain in search of their first win since St. Louis.  This has been a tough five weeks for everyone at Redskins Park, but spirits are high going into Dallas Week.  If there’s one thing about the NFC East, we know that anything is possible.  Twice already this season, the team with the worst record in the division has beaten the team with the best record.

Any given Sunday in the NFC East.

Check out your fine selection of Week 11 power rankings:

CBSSports.com gave the Redskins No. 22, holding steady from No. 22 last week (and the week before):

FoxSports.com bumped the Redskins to No. 28, down from No. 25 last week:

ESPN.com held the Redskins to No. 26, descending from last week’s No. 22:

NFC East blogger for ESPN.com, Dan Graziano, reminds us that it really looks bad now, but hey, it could probably be even worse, considering who the Redskins are in front of:

Five weeks ago, they were ranked 10th in this poll. They have not won since, and are now far more likely to settle somewhere near their preseason rank of 28th than in those lofty Week 5 and Week 6 heights. Things have gotten away from the Redskins quickly. I think they’re ranked about where they should be, but Miami and Carolina are behind them and have a case, since they both beat Washington head-to-head.

The last time that everyone doubted the Redskins ability to win against a divisional opponent, the Redskins came out and trounced the Giants in Week 1.  A lot has changed for the team since then, but they’re due for a win this weekend, and no team will bring out the best in Washington like the Cowboys.

    “Due for a win”? You have to earn wins, and the Redskins aren’t about to earn a win from a resurgent Cowboys team. I’m sick of this.

    You’re right, they do have to earn it. I think they just might 🙂

    Sure Washington and Dallas is always a good division rival match-up. But who is fooling themselves when they look at both teams past the mid way point of the season and see what teams are growing and what teams are breaking apart. Dallas has a clear advantage with Jones returning at RB along with Murray. And what balance offense has Washington even begun to put together? Nada! Get real its not gonna happen on this given Sunday. And they thought Haynesworth and Mcnabb were bad? Better look at ownership.

    @jim horath–

    When did I say I thought you were full of crap? Now that you mention it… 😛

    Brian, you did not say it in those EXACT words but I have said over & over OWNER-SHIP ( snider ) is the problem cause of judgement of ability, skill, & potential of same is lacking substantially because of the player choice made since snider bought the team. Latest mcnabb, grossman & now choice.
    not upset with you brian — you put in a bunch of time & enthusiasm behind the skins bolg. I think I am SPOILED by the OL’ TIME skins teams 7 only want a competitive team . LOL k?
