Playoffs: Yes or No?

I would like to push all my chips in and say that the Redskins will be in the playoffs this year. I think the Panicky Petes will all be proven wrong and the Skins will rebound and make a big run at just the right time. I am absolutely confident that they will win 11 games this year.

I would like for everyone else to give a Yes or No on the playoffs (no ass-covering caveats or equivocation please). This way we can look back and see who was right and who was wrong.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

im going to say yes just because im a fan and i want them to make the playoffs...but i think we will all havea better indication after this week's game against the texans. if we lose that game thats it, put a fork in us, if we win well lets hope that gives us enough momentum to string a few more together

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

11 wins? that would mean that we will only lose 3 more of the remaining 14 games...not very likely

I say we go 9-7, and that probably won't be good enough to make the playoffs

but we didnt lose to a team like the texans. thats why i say it is really dependant on if we win next week. the texans are probably the 2nd worst team in the league after oakland. if we lose to them...yeah i think realistically it is over but i will still be dreaming of the playoffs. last year was different, i thought we could win 5 straight because we had shown that the offense worked and the defense was awesome, this year we have shown neither so far. at least last year we had the defense

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

I guess I'm a "Panicy Pete", but I like to think I'm more of a realist. Let's say all of the problems, on both sides of the ball, are magically fixed by week eight. At that point they'll probably be 2-6, or 3-5 at the best. Even if they can win five out of the last eight games, that puts them at 7-9 or 8-8. No playoffs.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

I think a 10-6 record gets us into the playoffs this year because there are some other typically strong NFC teams not looking so great this season. So...

vs vikings - L
@ cowboys - L

@texans - W
vs jags - L
@ giants - L
vs titans - W
@ colts - L
vs cowboys -W
@ eagles - W (their injuries are going to catch up with them soon)
@ bucs - W
vs panthers - W
vs falcons - L
vs eagles - W
@ saints - W
@ rams - W
vs giants - W

I guess that puts us in, barely.

(I thought "no" when I started writing this...interesting)

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

folks... we're one game out of first place. no need to abandon ship yet...

giants have a tough tough schedule...
eagles play us twice...
the boys aren't very good either....

theres a lot of games left to play...

The redskins WILL show up this year. It's just a matter of when. And Houston is looking more and more delicious as each day passes.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

Its not about the record to me right now, were one game out of first, and we have plenty of time to make it up, its how were playing. If we fix the way we're playing the schedule will work itself out. If we continue to play even close to the way we have, we'll be picking with the #1 pick in next year's NFL draft.

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.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

If we win convincingly this weekend and at least give Jacksonville a run for their money, I'll feel a little better.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

I'm saying yes because I did not jump on a bandwagon, nor will I jump off as a result of this...............diversion. It's part of being a fanatic. A couple of teams may have drawn first blood, but it is a long fight. God knows we will "fight our guts out". I have complete confidence in Joe and co. to right the ship............fast. Who better to get well on than the Texan's????????

Note: If we lose to the Texan's, this post will self destruct if five...four....

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

yeah 0-3 is 3 games under .500 and 5-6 is 1 game. 0-3, while giving more time to catch up, is worse than 5-6. that being said, hopefully we'll get back on track @ houston. one win will hopefully get 'em sparked.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

I think it's impossible to make any meaningful predictions two games into the season.

But I don't like our chances at this point. Eagles Giants and Cowboys are all light years ahead of us right now.

Re: Playoffs: Yes or No?

I really believe it's to early to tell, last year I got you pencil out after you wen 5 - 6 but we all know what happend in the end.

OK this year schedulle it's harder than last years you have games against Jax, Dal, NYG (2), Phi(2) Ind, Atl, and let's not totally discard TB and Car as tough oponents. Last year your games came against Chi, Dal (2), NYG, Phi (2), Stl, Sea, SF, Ari..... of all this only Sea,NYG and CHi were playoffs teams PHi,SF and Ari where bottom of the pit and none where against AFC teams.

This year you face a different Phi not last year PHi so like I said you have 10 more tough games and 4 must wins in Hou and Ten, NO and Stl a 10 -6 record I believe is a must to get in the playoffs and maybe it will be short.
so that means you need to win 6 out of those 10 tough matches and all of the "easy" ones


It all depends in if your team clicks, the players are there and the coaching staff is there we will know better after week 5 if your 1 -4 I say no way.
