Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

I understand why there is a lot of gloom and doom sentiment around here. I would have to be a blind optimist to think that we don't have some serious problems. The running game is the worst we've seen in years, the passing game has sputtered, we've lost Jansen and Rogers for the season, Thomas might not come back until mid-December, we barely beat Miami and Arizona, and we got demolished by the Patriots.

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?

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

I am also a yes. Our schedule after the Dallas game should help out quite a bit.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

We had the same poll at 5-6 in 2005. I said yes then and I'll say yes again

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

I'll be the weenie....I really want to see how they respond to last weeks loss before I go on record as saying anything, but if we beat the Jets, than mark me down as a yes. We have too many winnable games left. The only games that I would say we "shouldnt" win are Dallas x2, and @ NYG. So thats 3 more losses, which would put us at 10-6. I would hope we could beat Dallas at home, especially if its meaningful, but based on what we've seen so far, they're a bit better than us. Not saying they're/Giants like Patriots level good, but I think we should win every other game...i stress SHOULD.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

Well I'm going to come out and say that I said no.

I said no because the Giants are looking like a whole new team after week 3. The realistic chances of our team winning the division playing like we are aren't very good. We would have to go beat the Giants in New York and Dallas probably twice just to be in contention.

We will probably be one of those 3-5 teams fighting for that wildcard spot and I just can't see us winning out in the end. Especially seeing as we don't play a team besides the Bucs who look like they would be fighting for the wildcard spot too. So our fate in the end will almost definitely be decided by another team.

For the record though I sure as hell hope we do make the playoffs. I just can't help but express my doubts.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

We're 1-1 in our division so I don't really know. Our O looks like trash and key injuries are starting to creep on us on both sides of the ball. Honestly, it's kinda stupid to say yes before we even played Dallas and the Giants one more time.

Ask this question when we've played and won couple of more games against divisional foes and my answer would be yes.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

Put me down for a Yes, as I look at the remaining schedule, I predict 3 losses at most finishing at 10-6 which is good enough for the post season.

Re: Will the Redskins Make the Playoffs

Yes we will make the playoffs. Look who we are competing against for the final wildcard, assuming New York doesn't collapse again this year (which I don't know how you can assume given their recent history). Detroit, who we have a head to head advantage against, is the toughest foe. I like their team but I am very comfortable going against them down the stretch. Either New Orleans, Carolina, or Tampa Bay, whoever doesn't end up winning that division. Not scared of that challenge. Who else? San Francisco or Arizona? Puleeaze. Chicago? They are done.

If we can merely win a couple tough games I don't see how we can miss out. Yes last week was humbling but we are still good enough to beat anyone in the NFC, imo.
