In continuing the tradition set forth by former Redskins blogger/current Redskins.com lead writer Brian Tinsman, I’ll be bringing you a roundup each week of where the Redskins fall in the various national media organizations’ power rankings.

And, finally, Sports Illustrated and columnist Don Banks placed the Redskins higher (or lower?) than all of the above:
