5 is our playoff number? Pick em'

According to the Monday morning guys on ESPN 980, we need to go 11-5 or better to be assured a play off slot. What's your picks?


11/16 Dallas @ Washington W 31-14
11/23 Washington @ Seattle W 28-17
11/30 NYG @ Washington W 21-17
12/07 Washington @ Baltimore L 14-10
12/14 Washington @ Cincinnati W 31-7
12/21 Philadelphia @ Washington W 24-17
12/28 Washington @ San Francisco W 34-14

I think saying we're going to beat NYG is pretty optimistic. I don't have a big problem with your other predictions, but I wouldn't make the margin of victory so great by any means. All of our victories so far this season have been by less than 10 points.

Giants, Ravens, Bengals, Eagles & 49er's. It wouldn't feel right if we didn't need to win our last 5 games to make the playoffs.

Re: 5 is our playoff number? Pick em'

Wow. Going 5-2 the rest of the way? That will be quite a feat. We have three tough divisional games to play (although they are indeed all at home), and play a tough Ravens team on the road. The other three opponents are all ones we will be favored against, but those games are all on the road. And as we learned after the Rams-Browns-Lions trio of games, the Redskins essentially give ALL of their opponents a shot at winning. I think going 4-3 the rest of the way is far more realistic.

If we do manage to win 5 of the last 7, however, you have to guess that three of the wins would come against the Bengals, Seahawks and 49ers, with a 2-2 split between the Cowboys, Giants, Eagles and Ravens. I would guess that the Cowboys and Eagles games are the ones we'd win.

Have to agree.
Not to mention The Giants had 17pts by the end of the 1st quarter last night against Philly. And went on to win with 36pts! The closest we've come to that was 29pts in week 2 against the Saints. Lol
Our offense is going to have to be firing on all cylinders and still have a few breaks go our way if we plan to beat them.

For my sanity the Ravens game is a must win. All of you B-more Skins fans now what I am talking about.

Re: 5 is our playoff number? Pick em'

Call me what you want i'm a little concerned over the way we've been playing. I'm looking to see is we can step it up this week. JC has got to step it up this week and make some plays. I don't think there are any "gimmees" w/ this team.

I think we'll win this week.

Re: 5 is our playoff number? Pick em'

we need to end up 11-5 just to make the playoffs? geezus christ that would be tough. arent we in a good positon to win the tie-breakers against teams like the boys and iggles so that 10-6 would get us in?

that means we HAVE TO handle our business against seattle (who i would love to destroy for the past 2 playoff losses and zorns return), cincy and 49ers (who is not a gimme game) . . . . this is going to be tough if 11-5 is the true mark. meaningful football at the end of the season is all we can ask for.

go skins!!

Well at least you can tell the B-more fans that you are Definitely rooting for their team this week. And I work in a Ravens dominated office...

10-6 would easily get a playoff birth. Beat Seattle, Cinncy, S.F. and one divisional game gets us to the playoffs.
