The Patriots better worry about the Colts, Jaguars, Steelers, Chargers and the Titians. It's not a lock that the Patriots will be representing the AFC. In a one game scenario, any team can lose. Game time conditions, weather, injuries, turnovers can cause a single game to change drastically. As Chris Berman always says, "That's why they play the games".

Very impressive top 10 defense w/ a # of starters gone for the year including 2 from the secondary almost all year. Just goes to show you that AS & GW do actually know what their doing.

The East is probably the toughest division in football. That doesn't mean the best team is in the east. The division as a whole is the toughest top to bottom.

yeah ok those unmotivated mofo's with blue stars on there helmets sure did. Those starters were in for there personal records not playing to win. I absolutly hate the NFL for making this rival game the last of the season what morons and those darn Cheeseheads for losing to the hibernating bears again.

Re: Redskins Defense Finshes 8th in NFL

We improved because of Springs (and Smoot.) Taylor was our best defensive player, but not the player whose loss would create the greatest drop in defense. Springs is.
Last year Springs was out a lot because the doctors didn't diagnose that he needed surgery until the season began. As a result we had Rogers and a revolving door as our secondary. Others had to cover up the deficiencies at CB, which made it feel as though we only had 10 guys playing defense. Our few good defensive efforts all came when Springs was in the lineup. This year we have Springs one-on-one with the best receiver plus Smoot able to replace Rogers when he went out. Now GW can be aggressive again.
The result is a vastly improved defense.

Rule of thumb:

When all else fails, blame the NFL. They probably did it anyway.

I'm not sure the Boyz didn't care. The team had a chance to win a franchise record 14 games in the regular season and that fact didn't escape Wade's attention. Romo, Witten and Barber had a chance to set records. The Cowboys hate the Redskins and vice-versa. Your team kept its starters in for 3 quarters, despite the fact that the game was "meaningless" and that they could have lost key players (e.g., Romo) to injury. The team supposedly wanted momentum going into the playoffs. Seems to me like they wanted to win, put up big stats on us, etc., but they couldn't get the job done.

The Cowboys have a really good team, but they simply got dominated on Sunday. Hopefully, we will see you in ten days or so.

i had to reply. what kind of players do you have, if they are out there not trying to win? do you think Marion Barber wanted 1000 yards? or Whitten wanted 100 catches?did you watch the fox pre game? you should have taken your old coach, Jimmy Johnson's advice. try to get rid of Washington now, so you don't have to play them later. and if your shitty ass coach couldn't do a better job of motivating then that, you guys might as well hand the keys over to Garrett right now

I think most of us would agree that we even lost our best player in ST, and how many teams do you suppose would excel in that kind of situation? When B. Sanders is missing from the Indy lineup their d is mediocre.

Anyway, i think what's happened is pretty awesome. Our d is leading us into the playoffs and I don't think it's going to let up.
I was thinking the same about the injuries we've had, plus the loss of Sean. GW is a monster of a D-coach.

Re: Redskins Defense Finshes 8th in NFL

Imagine where we would have ranked had we not been demolished by the "then" unstoppable force Patriots. They look mortal now, but back then, they were the best team I had ever seen. Our D would be top 5 if not for that Pats game.

Garrett might get the keys next season, with teams like Baltimore trying to snag him up its very possible.
