Another week, another frustrating loss for the Washington Redskins. After a promising 2-0 start to the 2011 season, the Redskins have failed to 3-5 thanks to four consecutive losses. The most recent setback, a 19-11 home defeat against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9, was again the result of poor offensive play.
In every media outlet's Week 10 NFL Power Rankings, the 'Skins have either held steady or dropped even further. At one point, Mike Shanahan's squad was flirting with an appearance in the top ten of most lists, but now the Redskins are not only out of the top half, but approaching the bottom third of the lot in the eyes of most scribes and fans.
In his Week 10 Power Rankings for CBS Sports, Pete Prisco didn't move the 'Skins down his board, but the company Washington is now keeping in the low and mid-20s is not pretty.
Analysis: It's hard to win without much offense. Is there any doubt they will draft a quarterback?
Sounds about right. Rex Grossman and John Beck have both proven to be unreliable options under center, and you know Mike Shanahan won't continue going to the well knowing he's going to come up dry over and over.
