Just how far are the Skins behind the top teams in the NFL?

This years Seattle and Pittsburgh teams are not team to roll off three of four Super Bowl wins like New England right? So just how far off are we from these kind of teams? What do we neeed to get to be playing this time next year or do we have already what we need? Just Gibbs and company more time to put it all together. So what do you think?

For me we need to upgrade WR to help take the double teams Moss is drawing. Depth to the lines. Maybe another TE. The players don't need to be super stars but guys that fit what this team is about!

Well we know one thing is your QB can have a rating under 30 and still win the SB. I think Roethlisberger had worse stats in the SB than Brunell had in or game against Tampa.

1 WR, 1DE, 1 TE, and some luck

I wonder if Steelers fans are calling for Charlie Batch today

We have to play well enough to get Seattle in D.C. for next year's playoff game. It will not be easy, since Seattle gets the luxury of playing all those crappy teams in their division twice. Still, crying about their schedule will not get it done for us.

One thing about the NFL all those crappy teams might be strong next year.

Maybe the Rams. The Niners will be improved, but still a ways to go, and no way am I ever falling for any pre-season talk on how much better AZ is again.

It can be hard to tell and teams can get a lot better or worse, but I think our division will be tough again.

I would think that our division will be thougher next year. Giants Payton has more playing time and in their system. Eagles back health and hungry to get back in the playoffs. Skins more time under Gibbs,coaching staff and a pick up of some needed players. Dallas is the only team in our division which might drop some.

Re: Just how far are the Skins behind the top teams in the NFL?

I think it's well documented here and various articles where we need to upgrade.

I think, as do most here, we can be a legitimate Super Bowl contender next year.

The "X" factor will be if Brunell can stay healthy throughout the season to sustain that kind of run. I also think our O-line is poised for a breakout season.

The defense will be top five, barring a rash of injuries. Carlos Rogers is certain to improve, but I am a little woried about his durabiltiy - we'll see.

What makes you think the Steelers cant become the next Pats? They have a young QB and overall the team is fairly young. I think the Steelers are in line to win at least 1 more SB in the next 2 seasons.

Re: Just how far are the Skins behind the top teams in the NFL?

Stability of our coaching staff will help--Both Gibbs and Williams coming back is a big deal. Now we have to see if Saunders can fix the O without starting from scratch.

If Campbell develops, we are a contender, IMO. Obviously adding a possession WR and pass rushing DE and a TE will help.

I, saden, predict that the Redskins will go to the Super Bowl next year. You head it here first.

I doubt Dallas drops any. The D will be stronger with the two DE playing and LBs are young. Plus I believe they are going to be in the running the James when he leaves the colts. I dont think Parcells is sold on the two guys they have.

If Dallas get's better, it will be marginal. To the extent the defense improves will be offset by mediocre play by Drew Bledsoe and an aging receiving corps. And remember they probably had the most unpredictable kicking game in the NFL last year.

If they do get E.James that would be huge for them, however. But I think for the first time in a long time, the Redskins has Dallas' number.

I concur. Without any logic involved at all, I say Skins vs. Steelers next year in the Super Bowl. I also agree with irish' logic that the Steelers still are a fairly good young team and are only going to get better.
