Following a 3-1 start, the Washington Redskins have lost each of their last four games by an average of 12.8 points and now share the NFC East cellar with the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite their most recent loss--to the San Francisco 49ers by a 19-11 final--ESPN's panel of experts declined to move Washington down in its latest NFL power rankings. The Redskins stay steady at No. 22.
Writing for the panel, Ashley Fox terms the Redskins' recent string of defeats a "free fall" and notes "John Beck still does not have a W as a starting quarterback." In his three starts, Beck has completed 58.8 percent of his passes with one touchdown and three interceptions for a passer rating of 69.9.
Further, the panel proved consistent in its votes: three voters had Washington at No. 22, while the two others had it at No. 23. As Jordan Ruby noted earlier in this StoryStream, SB Nation's NFL Power Rankings also held the Redskins at No. 22. It seems everyone can agree the Redskins aren't a very good football team.
