Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

Well, we did it last year but it seems like this is a rebuilding year so far, they can't seem to get the new offense down; plus the defense has seemingly taken a step back from the likes of last seasons' successful defense. I would say fat chance. I don't doubt that they'll beat the Texans but that doesn't prove shiznizzle; they need to get a few wins against some good teams, and I'm not talking about the Cowgirls. Only then should we again bring up the playoffs...

To say anything other than yes would mean I am not a true believer. I'm not much on predictions because I need proof.

I'm with you. I just haven't seen it on the feild to prove to me what we can do. I mean in my head I have it all worked out, we beat Houston, we pull off a miracle upset against Jacksonville, then ball gets rolling. But until I see that were good on the feild, whats in my head stays in my head, theres nothing to back it up.

I will say though, I'm a big believer in fate, and I'm starting to feel really good about this.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

If the defense doesn't improve, the skins won't even break 500 this season. I'd hate to see what the Colts are gonna do to us given what the Cowboys already did. Plus, does anyone honestly believe that we are gonna be able to score any points against the Jags with MB?

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

I think we need to be spending time in the "thank you universe" thread for Shawn Springs to come back...

Just hoping he's 100% Does anyone know the severity of the surgery and if he's expected to fully recover.?

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

Hey Gang,

I guess I should first say great site. I'm a skins fan out in Riggo country (that's Kansas for the young'ns) and have been (out of pocket) for a few years before that so I'm probably not as knowledgeable as some. Here is my 2c anyway's. I will say with some trepidation that this start scares me, only because Mark's first year with this system was horrid. Thus, I can only surmise that he is not a fast learner, and will struggle again with a new system. On the other hand it is all about defense, and if this D can mesh than I think they have the oppurtunity to be special. The D and the O have the weapons to compete. So I guess in typical lengthy bureaucratic legalisitc DC fashion I have surmised that I agree and disagee with the previous posts. This week tells all for me. If we can't put the throttle down and smoke a sub-par team we are in for a long season skins fans. Last week was bad enough for me; the skins to lose to Dallas and ND to lose to Michigan, It was like Black Monday for me.

I'll be drinking and cheering on Sunday. Go SKINS.

You forgot about the radiers... they are just about as bad as the texans

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

...And we lost to them last year.
Assuming we don't lose to Texas, things could start coming together for us. It gives us more time for CP and Springs to get healthy. I think the offense will start to gel around week 7. (This is what a number of people said before all the hysteria.) Remember, Saunders uses a lot of timing routes, and they take some time to work out. But it's so bad right now, the defenders are in the middle of all our screens. Once Springs gets back, we should be able to hold on a lot more 3rd downs. That means we won't always have to go a long way to get points. In addition, Saunders will have a better idea of what does and doesn't work with this team.

(I also want to say thanks to the Cowboys fans for their posts. They seem to be more (cautiously) optimistic for our team than some of the Redskins fans!)

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

If you ask me lets start with a win first before we start talking playoffs. The word playoffs and redskins should not be in the same sentence based on what i have seen thus far this season. Lets just get a win.

Welcome to the site Irishskins Fan... I'm glad I stumbled upon it less than a year ago...

I don't feel very optimistic about the Redskins future this season, but one doesn't have to go far to realize the ability of Joe Gibbs to turn things around. In 2005 our start was similar, with the exeption being Dallas learned their lesson and not letting us go deep (although I thought we were going to pull one off again in... but it never happened). As far as playoffs go, I'm in no mood to project any playoff aspirations as of yet, and I don't think anyone who does is sane. We have no offense, and our defense is swiss cheese. Theres no doubt we will in improve IMO, but I'll talk about playoffs after we get about .500

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

I don't believe they make it to playoff. Have feeling Brunell get hurt and Collins fill in badly for him. Campbell on bench too long if Gibbs behave like before. And if Brunnell not hurt, how much longer he last at his age and pounding he take. Mr. Al Saunders was a bad hire and knock them out of their successful winning rythm from last year.

However, if this team plays like we KNOW its capable of then watch out. The only question is wheather they will get their heads out of their asses soon enough to make a run, or if they'll be 2-5 by that time. I'm not really worried about any one player individually except Brunell, but I feel like if everyone else brings their game up a level, that he can be efficeint.

That said I think its gonna be close and in they end they will just miss out.
That's about 1 in every 7. I like our chances then with our coaching staff and players...providing we get it "together" as Gibbs says.
