Anyone Else Feeling A Playoff Vibe This Week?

I'm thinking this game is mad important. No, it's not THAT big of a game as far as the team's overall record is concerned. But I do get the feeling, if we look back at one game later on, this could be the game that made a difference in our season.

Yes, if we win this game, I could totally see us getting into the playoffs this year.

Re: Anyone Else Feeling A Playoff Vibe This Week?

(ha!) i dont know thats it but, its a huge game, this is a spring board game i believe. i think if we win, we could get danergous quick and if we lose well just the opposite could happen, we could look alot like last year. ill be at the stadium sittin' club level calling out coverages and being a idiot like usual. i am fired up for this one boys. CRANK DAT REDSKINS BOY!!!!!!!

I think that's why everyone was so pissed about losing to the Giants. Honestly, we'll get another shot at that one. And the expectation should be to split East games. This game could be a deal breaker.

I get the feeling FedX is going to be nuts!

Speaking of Fedex being nuts, Aikman made a good point about RFK & how Fedex doesn't give us the advantage RFK did.
Did you look at the seats at the start of the 2nd half last week? There are so many empty seats. It looks like everyone is in the bathroom or concessions. That really has to change. Teams need to come out in the 2nd half & feel the noise of the fans right off the bat.

I've only been to fedex once & it was crazy loud - Dallas game in 05. But from what I can tell from watching on tv, that game was an exception. Sure, it gets a little loud at times, but it usually doesn't sound the way rfk used to, or the way some stadiums do all the time.

I've posted this comment several times, but it bears repeating...there's no place like RFK. Unbelievable magic. If someone did a search, Gibbs didn't lose many games RFK.

no doubt, I went to a few games there & always loved it. Plus it was real DC, not suburban Md (nothing against the state, just would like the team to be true to its name).

Agree both about the playoff vibe and RFK. I do think that FedEx can rock, given it's enormous number of seats, but it doesn't have the intimate vibe of RFK (not sure any current stadium could--that place was falling apart and pretty small--great for intimidation!).

One of the haed-honchos over at extremeskins (Om?) has a blog up this week where he argues that this game is make or break for ALL OF GIBBS II! Not sure I buy that (though I think playoffs is pretty crucial this year, one way or another), but I agree that this is a BIG game for a fourth game on the schedule.

I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL SUNDAY!!!! LET'S KICK SOME ASS AND WIPE AWAY THAT BAD TASTE FROM THE GIANTS FIASCO! (And calm down the crazy depressed--quasi-suicidal--vibe permeating the redskins nation.)

I don't know about a playoff vibe this early in the season, but one thing is for sure, we will find out about the abilities of our secondary.

HUGE HUGE game. Not that i am giving the division to Dallas but we obviously are thinking wildcard right now. Detroit is a huge wildcard competitor. Now so are teams like arizona and carolina but i would like a tie breaker over the lions if it comes to that.

Furthermore, 2-2 and 3-1 are big differences. But it is 4 weeks in so who knows what the hell is going to happen.

You might be thinking wild card. I'm thinking win the damn division!

It's aweful early for anyone to count us as a wildcard. I could care less about the pukes, the wheels could very well fall off the cart!

This is a BIG week and we will respond as such!

Same thing with the Big House in Ann Arbor, a shitload of folks and they are rather complacent( not very loud) since they are the winningest program of all time. With Fedex it is just huge and the jacked up ticket prices have helped to keep your more rabid fans at home while corporate folks or more wealthy casual fans have taken over. You can see that at a lot of the pro sports here in Detroit. Most rabid sports fans are blue collar to lower white collar folks who can't justify spending a paycheck or more to show the family a good time. I think if you go to more pro venues, regardless of the sport you will see the same dynamic. RFK was small and the acoustics amplified the sound more. Also with the more rabid fans you could get that place literally rocking. Fedex is just too big and the fan base is not as rabid.

Fedex should be nuts every home game!!!!!! Also as a Detroiter and with the Lions being a lesser fav team of mine from the Skins a win is nice, but not huge. Thing is the Lions are up one week down the next, this is a pattern that goes way back, even before the Millen era. They can play like SB contenders and win then lay an egg the next week. Just look at them vs the Eagles then the Bears. It might be time for them to lay another egg on Detroit fans. To me the real test will be via GB and TB and how well we play them. Detroit is all offense and not much D so a victory really doesn't mean that we are playoff bound, just means we exposed a one dimensional team. We should take this game, but the Giants game has me wondering about our coaching staff. Lions put up 34 pts against the Bears in the 4th quarter, we can't afford another sit on our asses second half or even a quarter. We need to score a lot!!
