Re: Season expectations poll

I was looking at an 8-8 and would have been content with it since it's been ages since we've been at 500 or above (I think the last year we topped 500 was Marty S. as coach). To go 10-6 and get into the divisional round of the playoffs easily exceeded my expectations and I'm pleased with this year as well as excited for next year. Let's fill our holes in the off season with FAs and draft picks where appropriate and continue our climb to dominance in the NFL. With continuity in the coaching staff and roster and a few upgrades, we should be in a position next year to at least reach the NFC championship round.

Re: Season expectations poll

i was really mad we were so thoroughly outplayed on saturday (despite the turnovers)... then i realized how injured and worn out the team realy was and how long its been since they had a break (AZ was the last gimme game over 6 weeks ago and that went to the wire, our bye was 14 weeks ago, our best OL was gone, our #2 WR which really did help the WR production had been on IR forever, or defense hasn't had healthy corners all season etc etc)

It just wasn't meant to be, but i did like how we still had a shot all the way to the end (And we converted more of those crazy 3rd and 20s thanks to one Santana Moss). If gibbs can improve his playcalling as much as he did last year and ditch sitting on leads with 40+ minutes to go etc, i think we have a real shot next year (with a hopefully MUCH easier schedule) instead of an outside longshot.

Re: Season expectations poll

Skins had a great season. I was expecting 9-7 and an outside shot at wildcard status, but I did not think we would go far in the playoffs. I was stunned at how well Brunell and Moss played this year. I did not think we would lose some close AFC games by giving up big plays, but we did lose a few key D starters. We definitely have a nice core to build around for next year and its nice to know the coaching staff is stable in the offseason.
It is nice to beat Dallas, even nicer to beat them twice.
Go skins!

Re: Season expectations poll

Doing what they did in "crunch time" and running off the 6 straight, they far exceeded. Now next year might be a different story. We will see come training camp.

Re: Season expectations poll

I predicted we'd go 10-6 or 9-7 at least, so this season met my expectations in those regards. However, even that, for some reason I didn't believe we'd make the playoffs with either record. Therefore, in that respect, the season exceeded my expectations. Sweeping Dallas exceeded my expectations as well as sweeping the Eagles this year! Defintely making the playoffs and advancing exceeded my expectations!

Next year, I expect us to do no worse than 10-6, make the playoffs and advance again. I also expect us to have at least one home game in the playoffs.
