I think after we get past the rebuilding stage and we lose the Hayneworth-type drama leftovers from Vinny you will see the skins much higher in the rankings.

(DISCLAIMER: Yes, I know this is a meaningless ESPN article but....)

I think after we get past the rebuilding stage and we lose the Hayneworth-type drama leftovers from Vinny you will see the skins much higher in the rankings.

The redskins problems reach far beyond just a few players. Here is how they came to that ranking.

Bang For The Buck (BNG): Wins during the past three years (regular season plus postseason) per revenues directly from fans, adjusted for league schedules. Redskins Rank: 112 out of 122

Fan Relations (FRL): Openness and consideration toward fans by players, coaches and management. Redskins Rank: 121 out of 122

Ownership (OWN): Honesty and loyalty to core players and local community. Redskins Rank: 112 out of 122

Affordability (AFF): Price of tickets, parking and concessions. Redskins Rank: 121 out of 122

Stadium Experience (STX): Quality of arena and game-day promotions as well as friendliness of environment. Redskins Rank: 112 out of 122

Players (PLA): Effort on the field and likability off it. Redskins Rank: 118 out of 122

Coaching (CCH): Strength of on-field leadership. Redskins Rank: 74 out of 122

Title Track (TTR): Championships already won or expected in the lifetime of current fans. Redskins Rank: 62 out of 122

If it wasnt for a few superbowls eons ago (and a coach who won one slightly more recently), they'd be dead last.

Honestly a lot of times i think its just fashionable to bash the skins for a lot of these publications. They look at Dan Snyder and they say well they have to be ranked low on everything.

Trent Williams - T - Redskins

Redskins LT Trent Williams has been noticeably absent from offseason player-organized workouts.

There was a feeling at Oklahoma that Williams didn't harness his talent due to a lackluster work ethic. Williams insists his absence is merely the result of communication mix-ups. "I think they send out emails," he said, "and I didn

You mean like how we always hear about how we boo'd Santa and raped the easter bunny?

If it helps, I've been bashing Synder a decade ;)

Edit:

or like people on extremeskins when they read the list:

Yeah that's a little ludicrous, there's no way it can be below stadiums for any philthy team, where their fans puke on little kids and throw batteries at santa clause.

Saw on ES a while ago that some members were saying that it was a lock that davin Joseph would be a skin next year.

Free agents RG Davin Joseph and RT Jeremy Trueblood are both hoping to re-sign with the Buccaneers.

Comprising the right side of the Bucs line for the past five seasons, Joseph and Trueblood have forged a strong bond. Although Trueblood lost his job to James Lee down the stretch, he's considered a better fit for new O-Line coach Pat Morris' power-blocking scheme. Joseph will be one of the better free agent guards available, so the Bucs will have competition for his services.

Its far from a lock but he could be a target for them since Allen drafted Joseph and the skins could use some help at guard. Kory Lichtensteiger was the weak link at guard, Will Montgomery actually finished the year as the 10th best pass protecting guard in the NFL last year according to Pro Football Focus.

So they could use upgrades at left guard, center, and right tackle.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan drafted sixth-round WR Aldrick Robinson upon strong recommendation from SMU coach June Jones, who knows Shanahan well from their time together in the NFL.

Robinson finished second in SMU history with 3,314 receiving yards while finding the end zone in 11-of-14 games as a senior. NFL Films guru Greg Cosell has called Robinson a "dynamic slot prospect," quick in and out of his breaks and "more explosive than Jordan Shipley." Robinson is a name to track in deeper PPR leagues.

Hopefully he turns into a Wes Welker-type player for us.

Cosell is actually a good analyst, if he likes him that's a plus for you guys. I would temper your expectations a bit and just hope he can become a legitimate player. Even that is impressive for a 6th rounder.

If this guy never sees the field, he has already surpassed 6th round draft pick status for the Redskins due to this write up alone.

Apparently God is helping the skins for a change.

O.J. Atogwe revealed this week that the Vikings were one of a few teams that had "serious interest" in signing him before he chose the Redskins.

Atogwe believes God told him to sign with the Redskins. The Almighty, who often takes time out of his hectic schedule to direct action on the football field, must be especially resentful of the lockout. The Vikes' pursuit of Atogwe speaks to veteran Madieu Williams' tenuous spot on the roster.

Donovan McNabb - QB - Redskins

CSN Washington's Ryan O'Halloran suggests the Redskins wouldn't get more than a "used kicking tee" in a Donovan McNabb trade.

The suggestion is half-joking, but realistic. The Redskins wouldn't even get a used kicking tee for McNabb because he's due $12.5 million in 2011, entering his age-35 season, and coming off the worst performance of his career. As much as the Redskins and their fans would like to pretend McNabb still has a trade market, he's going to be released before the season kicks off.

That didn't even mention the fact that their coach made it clear he isn't coming back as his starter and that the lockout has made trading for him at best an extra six weeks of time with him, making the contract and anything that would have to be exchanged all the more undesirable. It's a shame they won't let him go free until the last possible moment anyway.

Updating a previous item, there is now talk in the Redskins organization that the NFL lockout will end this coming Sunday, July 10.

Coach Mike Shanahan is reportedly preparing as if his team will report on time for training camp, starting July 28. The positive vibe coming out of Redskins headquarters synchronizes with a Tuesday Yahoo! Sports report that the owners and players are "closer to an agreement than many people realize -- perhaps than even some of the people involved realize."
