Are We a Contender?

I have a good question during this dead time before tomorrow cuts... Do you think we are with this current roster legitimate Super Bowl contenders? Is so why, and If not what do you think we need?

Honestly I think we could be Contenders especially if Campbell is as good as advertised recently. A D-Line signing would put us over the top. This year for me there is just something about the roster that looks very promising. Out side of the Dline I don't see any big hole with lackluster talent Discuss...

since we are in the weaker NFC i would say yes. But, if we do have one weakness right now it is the lack of rotation on the defensive line but with the roster right now i say we have a chance and if the panthers cut kris jenkins we should pick him up just a little sidebar

Re: Are We a Contender?

To be totally honest, I can't see any proof that we are. My tune could change a few games into the season, but really, the playoffs in 2005 weren't a lot to change my opinion. A lot has changed since and there are far too many variables right now to say anything but 8-8, maybe a little better.

Legitimate Super Bowl contenders??? No.
Not this year. Campbell is a big question mark. Too many unknowns.
Any team can make it to the Super Bowl. But if your talking about legitimate contenders the true SB contenders: Patriots, Chargers, Colts, Seattle, and Chicago.

Re: Are We a Contender?

The day I think we're no longer a contender in May is the day I stop posting 10.77 posts per day. Teams each year come out of nowhere to be contenders.

i would take chicago out of there and maybe seattle too the NFC's top 3 is:

1. I hate to say it but I have to go with the Saints, I hate them but they haven't lost much and picked up a few good pieces to add on i know they lost horn but he was gone for most of last season.

2. Whoever wins the NFC East- the nfl's toughest and most physical division. Whoever comes out of this will definitely be a legimiate super bowl contender.

3. Whoever wins or comes in 2nd beind NO the NFC south- Ever since re-alingment in 2002 the nfc championship has featured one team from this division and who's to say that it wont happen again

Yes!
What we need to have to make it happen is an injury free season and a little luck.

Re: Are We a Contender?

Anyone can win the Super Bowl so everybody is technically a contender, but we have more "ifs" that need to come through for us than a lot of other teams do.

We can win the Super Bowl if Campbell makes the leap, if our offensive line stays healthy, if our defensive line can stop the run, if our secondary can limit big plays, and if our defense can generate turnovers.

I can see us doing very well next season, I can also see us sucking. I think the crux of the question is what chance do the 'Skins have of winning the SB? I wouldn't lay down any money unless I was getting 20-1 or better.

They have to prove a lot to me. Staying healty, consistant, and not getting complacent will determine how we do. We have the talent.

Re: Are We a Contender?

I say we are definately contenders. It is very unlikely because there are so many conditions that would have to be met for us to actually get to the super bowl (or even the playoffs for that matter)
We could win the super bowl if.....
-Jason Campbell is the real deal and has really stepped up his game as much as the reports say he has
-Our D-Line steps up and turns out to be decent
-LaRon Landry turns out to be a stud and impact player his first year
-Shawn Springs stays with the team and stays healthy and good
-Carlos Rogers or (maybe and) Fred Smoot step up their game
-Rocky McIntosh turns out to be a solid LB, or Marshall has a good year
-Brandon Lloyd is utilized much more effectively, and is much more productive
-Our running combo of Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts fills out its potential and is a destructive force
-Sean Taylor regains his ability to play the pass real well
-Santana Moss stays healthy and good
-Carter continues on the momentum that he had at the end of last year
-Injuries do not screw our team

So basically, I change my answer to no because all these things will not happen, but if they do, then we have a shot. We also might have a shot if all the other teams get food poisioning before every game we play.

Re: Are We a Contender?

Everyone is a Super Bowl contender. Thats just how the wonderful NFL is these days. But, I can't say we are a serious contender. So much is riding on JLC and Grilliam's defense improving. Those are two HUGE "ifs," in fact they are just about the biggest "ifs" a team can have. We could get there, but there are too many question marks at this point to say we are serious contenders.
