I definitely agree that 9 wins could get someone in. The NFC is just so mediocre.

Whoever makes it to the Super Bowl from the NFC is going to get trounced.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

I'm an eternal optimist, but unless some things change over the course of the next nine games, this is a difficult question to answer. This team has already had to overcome so much adversity which has invarably led to so much inconsistency, it's extremely difficult to predict a possible outcome for this season. I think a lot of things have to go right the rest of the way, including the ability to win close games. It has become painfully obvious that the games we have left on the schedule are going to be close, and hard fought. The four division games left, and the one against Tampa Bay will pretty much decide our season.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

What wildcard teams are going to have 10 wins? The Giants? Probably. Anyone else? Doubtfully. Detroit's got a pretty damn tough schedule. Carolina has the 21st ranked defense and no QB. Arizona won't win 10 games either. In short, our competition sucks.

People might not think we are a playoff caliber team, but find me 6 other NFC teams that are. We don't need to be a top team in the NFL, we need to be a top team in the NFC.

I voted no. I think we'll end up 7-9 and miss the last wild card spot by a game.

Smile Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

If we continue to sputter on offense and continue to think that Cover 2 is unbeatable we wont make the playoffs .... but

11/4@ Jets1pm ET W
11/11vs. Eagles1pm ET ? W
11/18@ Cowboys4:15pm ET ?
11/25@ Buccaneers1pm ET ?
12/2vs. Bills1pm ET W
12/6vs. Bears8:15pm ET W
12/16@ Giants8:15pm ET ? W
12/23@ Vikings1pm ET W
12/30vs. Cowboys1pm ET ? W


We need to win at least 2 or 3 divisional games .. I think we beat Philly @ home and get revenge against the G-Men ... RT should be back for that one and Im thinkin' we steal one from the Cowgirls @ home ... We have offically hit rock bottom after sunday's loss ... but it will only make this team stronger ... Campbell learn a good lesson Sunday ... Hopefully Wade can learn to block ... cuz hes the weak link on the line

12-4 to 10-6

We finish 2nd in the East ... im Hopin'

No, I will go on record as a No vote. In some sick twisted way, I hope that me saying no will make me feel like a jackass when they do.

Okay, thanks for at least taking a position publicly. But, I hope you're wrong too.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

The Tampa Bay game right after Thanksgiving might be the deciding game for us getting the last wildcard. The O-line play must improve for the offense to hold up their end - does anyone know whether Heyer might be available soon?

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

Dammit, I only thought about this for two or three minutes before confusion set in.

Just look at our division. It's real hard for me to see us winning either of the Dallas games, we just don't have enough offense (not near enough really). The Gmen are playing some of the best ball in the NFC w/ two of the nastiest d-ends in the game and a surprisingly resurgent Eli (this really pisses me off because I basically expected Campbell to do what Eli has done). And finally, the Eagles have long been a second-half-of-the-season team. We could easily go though the '07 season w/ just one division win, which gives us another four losses at least, which means we could still be 9-7, which means we could still be a wild card contender.

Bottom line: the entire NFC is almost as embarassing as our loss to the Patriots on Sunday (the two things are also similar because every other friggin person I know is talking about them).

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

I chose to be a weenie because I just like to be different. I honestly do not mind going on the record.

We will Make the Playoffs by sweeping Dallas and Philly, and beating NY. We will be second in the Division because Dallas only loses to us twice and NE. we manage to lose one more game, but not within the division. The Giants make the Playoffs as well. And even though The NFC east sends 3 teams to the Playoffs again we still get no props for being the toughest division in the NFL from the rest of the league.

That's a tall order my friend. I like the optimism, but I see this team perhaps winning 10 games and likely winning 9. I see the following games as Ws: NYJ , Eagles (barely), Bills, Bears, and the Vikings. I see the following games a Ls: Cowboys (twice) and Giants. The Tampa game is a toss-up.
