Going 2-2 isn't a killer, but I doubt we are going to lose this one. The Lions are all O very little D, but their D is better than our D at takeaways it seems. Still like I stated above a win is very nice of course, but don't automatically think playoffs after a Skins victory. Our games against the Bays and NE will be good measures at how well of a team we really are. Detroit is only one sack away from tanking guys. Kitna is getting killed back there. One bad landing off of a sack or a Joey T type thing and the Lions are toast. If Kitna survives to week 10 it will be a miracle. Detroit is a one trick pony that will be exposed once the triggerman is taken out.

I've seen many games at both RFK and FedEx, and I believe that the architecture at RFK with its curved roof around the edge of the stadium allowed the sound to reverberate back. FedEx is completely open at the top, and no matter the number of fans, much of the noise is lost. I left games at RFK with my ears ringing for a day or two. Can't say that ever happened to me at FedEx, even after the Giants game on Xmas Eve 2005 that was essentially a playoff atmosphere.

As for this week's game against Detroit, it carries huge tiebreaker ramifications for a wild card. Winning conference games at home against other contenders is a must if the Skins are serious about playing in January.

Good post. I think we're all agreed this could be a breakout game.

Re: Anyone Else Feeling A Playoff Vibe This Week?

i really hate saying game #4 on the schedule is a must win. with that out of the way, teams that are successful, and make playoff runs, are the teams that win the games that they are supposed to. this is a game that the skins are supposed to. 3-1 is alot sweeter then 2-2. might as well start the playoff push now

Re: Anyone Else Feeling A Playoff Vibe This Week?

this is one we are suppose to win. Good teams beat the teams they are suppose to beat and we are suppose to win this one. I dont know about must win but i'd have to say its pretty close to being that. Lets not talk about being good....lets be about being good which starts with beating who you are suppose to beat.

well we have already blown one game. We need to win to have a good chance for the playoff. This will be tiebreaker game to get in. NFC record and head to head.

I think it would be more about dropping 2 in a row at home against conference opponents, either of which could be contending for a wild card spot.

That would be a severe confidence killer, and set a tone of moving in the wrong direction.

but what do you know, you're gus ferrotte... g/l with the rams today, knock yourself out!

I'm a little nervous about this game. They have killer recievers and our offense made the worst pass defense in the leage going into the giants game look pretty solid. I'm not saying the giants didn't happen to pick it up before they played us, but I'm pretty nervous... and excited!!!!

GO SKINS!!!!

I think the consensus is, while it's not a game that could get us into the playoffs, per se...it could have playoff implications as the season wears on.

Is that a corrrect assumption?
