I'm watching first take and this is the shit I see. The redskins and the lions are decent teams but are they better than the Eagles? The Cowboys? The Bears? The Giants? Shit there's probably a few more. Arizona might finish better than both these teams..

We beat the crap out of the Giants and basically the Cards, too, though the score didn't reflect it.

If this was a college football-style rankings, the 2-0 Skins wouldn't anywhere near a top ten.

College football is held back by those stupid preseason polls. Not that the Redskins should be that high, but saying two teams they smashed should be ahead of them? Mentioning the Cowboys? The Bears and their awful OL? It's not like we're talking about all teams, we're talking about just the NFC teams, so yeah, they're definitely top 10 right now.

The Cowboys are EASILY a better team than the skins.. And so are the bears. A 2-0 start doesn't mean shit in all honesty. What NFC team would trade all of their players and coach away for the Redskin's?

The Skins will finish with a better record than the Gmen. That's obv more than one game. Ill take Shanahan leading a team anyday over Emperor Palpatine. Obv you need talent to win but you also need 53 ego driven men to buy into the schemes, etc. Wsh has that in spades this season and don't overlook chemistry. Our roster may not have a lot of superstars on it but we will be a better TEAM than NY this year. Bet

Shanahan without Elway = Average coach who's been living off an expired "coaching genius" rep for 12 years.

EASILY? They're just much better off at the QB position, but overall they don't look easily better as a team so far. I'm basing it off what has actually happened while you're basing your opinion off of assumptions of what you think will happen. That's kind of the point of power rankings. They lean more on what has actually happened than what someone guesses will happen.

I don't know about you, but I'd rather start 2-0 than 1-1 or 0-2. Every game in the NFL means a lot. This isn't the NBA or MLB where 1 game doesn't mean that much because you have a shitload more games. Still though, you're looking down the line when you should be looking at right now.
