They've been bad though.

They might have played their best game of the season against Chicago, but they still have GB twice, Dallas, the Giants among other teams.

A 4-5 finish (extremely optimistic) only gets them to 9-7, and we hold the tiebreaker.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

Sorry fellas. I'm typically an optimist when it comes to my views of the 'Skins, but I'm gonna have to say no and pray that I am proven terribly wrong at the beginning of the post season. I simply believe that our O-line problems are going to be too much to overcome. That area is the reason our running game has suffered, not Clinton Portis thank you, and Jason Campbell is now running for his life. Anything can happen and hopefully we can somehow keep plugging decent bodies in on the offensive line. But that will be quite a challenge to say the least and I think we will be watching the playoffs from the sideline...again. :-(

We have the chops to beat them either head to head or in a race for a playoff spot, don't get me wrong. It's certainly possible we get in. But to say the NFC is so crappy is dangerous. The Saints especially are perfectly capable of going on a tear.
We're halfway through the season now. Can bad teams (e.g., Philly) pull out and get to the playoffs? Sure, but good teams can also collapse. In judging whether or not we will make the playoffs, I am simply looking at our conference, the current standings, and the schedule. I just see us winning 9 or 10 games and getting the 6th seed.

With all that being said, I strongly believe that this team will make the playoffs and here is why. Yes, the defense got demolished by the Patriots, but what defense wouldn't? The defense is stout and, with the emergence of Rocky McIntosh and the additions of guys like Laron Landry, London Fletcher, and even David Macklin, this defense will return to form next week. The offensive line is really banged up, but I cannot help but think that time itself and Buges' coaching up will help improve things (even if the O-line doesn't become a source of strength). Portis, Moss and Betts, IMO, are not the Hall of Famers we want them to be, but they are too good to continue playing like they have. Does anyone really think Portis, Moss, and Betts can play any worse? Jason Campbell is young and has just 14 starts under his belt and should improve with time. Finally, after this Sunday we should be 5-3 in a weak NFC with a schedule that isn't a cakewalk, but isn't exactly tough.

So, my question to you is, will the Redskins make the playoffs this season?
Nope. How can anyone say we are going to make the playoffs scoring 14 points a game??? It's crazy. Three teams are not going to come out of the NFC East. Cowboys and Giants are going to make because they are: 1. better than we are. 2. both are ahead of us.

How can you say Philly is a bad team?? Sorry dude but they are not a bad team at all. They are an average team that has had some tough losses. They can very easily come down here and beat us and I wouldn't be shocked if they did.

So how can you be so sure we are going to even make it to 9-7?? We have to play Dallas twice. That could very well be two L's.

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'
Hope I'm wrong but this is how I see it.

2 L's to the Cowboys.
1 L to TB
1 L to NYG
1 L to either Philly or Bears.

9-7 or 8-8

I really do not think that Dallas will own you at FedEx in the last regular season game.

IF Dallas has clinched the division and a playoff spot, then you probably will not see the starters too much in the second half and some very conservative play calling so the starters won't get hurt. It is in FedEx too.

Also I think that Washington will need that win to get that wildcard spot.

If you look at Detroit, they are in the same boat as Washington, they have a division game last week of the season against the Packers. Who may mirror Dallas, and have thier division locked up and clinched. So, the Packers will not want to get anyone hurt as well.

I think the Lions and the Redskins will fight it out for that last wild card spot. Washington owns the tie-breaker.

You can realistically estimate that the Lions can finish 10-6 and the Skins 10-6. But with Washington owning the head-to-head tie-breaker.

After the Skins and Lions, there just is not any NFC Team that leaps out as a contender for that second wild-card spot. The first Wild-Card, I predict will go to the G-Men or Dallas, depending on which one of those wins the NFC Beast.

That is just the way I see it.

You seriously shouldn't post anymore. Your writing is so incoherent that it appears you didn't even graduate high school. Nobody can understand what the hell you're saying, so do us all a favor and clean it up, or just go away.

They can't score on offense, their defense isn't good, they've got a losing record, and I just don't think they are a good team anymore. I do not necessarily think they are a bad team (I overstated things), but they are not a good team.

But, if as you say, Philly is not a bad team that has had tough losses, why do you think that we won't make the playoffs? After all, we have a winning record, we beat the Eagles (a supposedly average team) by more than a touchdown, we had two tough losses, and we got blown out or beaten badly in just one game against the best team in the league.

Devil's Own, I say this is all seriousness, if English is not your first language, you might want to disclose that fact.
