Some things never cease to amaze me about the NFL. No. 1 on this list at times is talent evaluation. Seriously, how many people not named Mike or Kyle Shanahan thought the Redskins could be competitive in the NFC East with Sexy Rexy and Sexy… Beck-sy? I don’t see any theoretical hands raised.

So now the Redskins are exactly where all NFL fans thought they would be in early December and the Patriots get to play them to prep for the playoffs.

A few quick hits on some of the interesting or odd things in the individual rankings for Madden ’11. You can see the full list here.

Earlier this week, Pat Kirwan put out his Top 20 Breakout Candiates list, where a certain Patriots OT was listed at #19.  Sorry to break it you Mr. Kirwan, but to put it in Sebastian Vollmer’s native German, die katze is already out of the bag.
