Re: For everyone that didn't give up!

I don't think we'll have to worry about a letdown on Sunday, they've been in playoff mode for the last 4 weeks. This team knows what's in front of them. Win and they're in. If they can't get up for that they don't deserve to go.

Re: For everyone that didn't give up!

I'm glad you didn't make an official prediction.

So far so good.

So what happened that you needed to have your back covered?

BTW- does anyone know if Hawaii is on a time delay when it comes to televised games??? I will be going on a pearl harbor excursion during the NFC championship game, and if the skins are in it, I need to find a way to watch it. Any suggestions?
There won't be a delay in Hawai'i. Just find a bar or sit in your hotel room. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Myself!
I am a veteran of the Clint Longley debacle, and my paranoia factor went through the roof when I heard the "no starters" stuff. Rest assured, the only one more paranoid than me, is Gibbs. Gibbs will have the squad taking no prisoners.
If Wade decides to rest the whole team and play the cheerleaders, JOE2 will give that..................girl squad the THRASHIN' of their lives!

I'm going to take the high road here. I could write a list of people (a long list mind you) that gave up on this team, and some that made threads about our demise, but instead of dwelling on that, I am inviting everyone to enjoy where we are RIGHT NOW. We have a chance to make the playoffs with only 1 more win. Win and you're in. It doesn't get much better than this. For as corny as this sounds, let's all join together and enjoy this as a whole as only we can do as the best fans on the planet.
I forgo any grudges I have on posters here that have been less than optimistic, and I look forward to ALL OF US enjoying a victory over hated Dallas to get into the playoffs. Who's with me?
Great thread! i was thinking about all the people on this site who counted the skins out all season. Part of being a fan is wanting your team to suceed and sticking with them through their darkest hour, not kicking them when they're down. It's been an extremely tough season for this team and the way they have responded has made me very proud to say I'm a Redskins fan. I continue to be impressed with our Hall of Fame Coach Joe Gibbs and hope he remains with the Skins for years to come. BEAT DALLAS!!!

Re: For everyone that didn't give up!

As a Redskins fan, I expect nothing less than a Lombardi Trophy each year. However, as a fan of the game, I realize that there are going to be times where my team does not do enough to earn that respect and that trophy. And I can live with that.

Predictions aside, it's been a hell of a ride to this week. Beat Dallas Sunday afternoon at 4:15 Eastern (11:15 in Hawaii) and the 6th seed belongs to the Skins. 2 times in 3 years, the Skins will have backed into the playoffs...

There is a difference between wavering doubt and giving up. I never give up...

Correction if they make the playoffs they would have EARNED not BACKED into the playoffs. The last 3 games have been hard fought and I expect the same come Sunday. If Minnesota or NO make the playoffs that's backing in.

That's nothing to be ashamed about. Anything can happen in the playoffs and this team appears to be peaking at the right time.
All I'm saying is the odds are stacked against the Skins. Got to win 3 road playoff games to get to The Promised Land and that isn't going to be easy.

CRAP! That's not good. I wonder if I can pay the concierge to tape it for me or something...maybe they have a DVR or something.

I agree...Gibbs has done one hell of a job. Sure he has made some pretty evident mistakes, but I seriously doubt anyone could have accomplished what he has. How many teams lost a ton of their starters during the season, including o-line and starting qb, plus the death of an all pro, and will make the playoffs...only 1! The Skins. That's Gibbs...plain and simple.

The odds are definitely stacked against the Redskins this postseason. The team will be playing on the road without half of its starters in the secondary, McIntosh, the starters on the right side of the O-line, and their #1 QB. And that assumes that the team beats Dallas, which probably will not be as easy as some expect.

That said, I'll be happy with A playoff appearance. Perhaps my standards are too low, but after the playoff drought from 1992-1998 and 2000-2004 I just want to see our team play in January. Moreover, with all that this team has gone through this season, I think it's reasonable to hang our hats on a wildcard spot.

I don't know if I would call that backing into the playoffs. If you're controlling your own fate by simply winning out, that's earning your spot not backing in.
