But, as you noted, the point of my post was to point out that we can make the playoffs. Those that think otherwise need to take a step back, review the NFL playoff system, and look at our competition. Quite simply, the NFC sucks and so some "sucky" teams are going to be playing in the postseason.
Yeah, I think the way it's going there will definitely be an 8-8 team going...

Re: 5 in a row or we don't go

The playoffs seem comical to me this season, not just from the Skins point of view but for the league in general. From a fans standpoint, NE has the league by its tail. Only an injury to Brady could keep NE from another SB title IMO. The NFC will send GB or Dallas to the SB to be handily defeated by NE or, on the outside chance, by Indy. Essentially, the AFC has two teams superior to anything in the NFC. I completely sick of watching the Pats dominate everybody and the AFC dominating the NFC. Sure, Belichick and the NE franchise deserves respect for putting together a dreamteam under the same set of opportunities and constraints all teams face. But I'm still sick of it.

Finally, for the Skins a playoff berth means we must have won a few more games, which just mean lower draft picks for what in all likelihood would be a first-round playoff loss in an away game. Not really worth it IMO but hey, that's just me. Nobody really expected this to be a rebuild year but that's just how things worked out. We need some tremendous talent in the draft to shore up a creaky o-line, an enervated WR corp, probably a DB (w/ Springs on his way out), and now (RIP ST) a safety. Sometimes I get pegged for being a pessimist for looking at the season this way but I can't help thinking further into the future and what it will take to make this team competitive again. The playoff berth in '07 doesn't do much good toward that goal.

Re: 5 in a row or we don't go

With the way the Eagles and Ravens played the Patriots down to the wire, I'm not so sure now that they are a lock for a Super Bowl win. I think they could definitely lose to the likes of Indy or the Steelers in the playoffs, and I think on a bad day they could even lose to the Cowboys in the SB assuming they both make it.

Let's not crown them just yet.

Re: 5 in a row or we don't go

I had to look back 5 weeks ago and see where we were. We didn't have to win all 5. Maybe not even 4 but we did it. We made it. I thought 4 would be enought to get in and but like i wrote, i didn't think 3 would be. Minni is going to overtime and if they needed it i think they would win but now they know they are out. DOesn't that feel EXACTLY like 2005??? We are going to the playoffs....

NOW WE NEED TO WIN 4 MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@#@1!!!

Re: 5 in a row or we don't go

I'm a "doubter" or at least I was...but man that was incredible. I didnt really care how things unfolded post Sean Taylor, but my god this has sucked me in. I'm so freaking proud of this team and to be a Redskins fan. I nearly cried after the game that was incredible.
