But I think if the Redskins can win, they'll have taken a step towards being a playoff team. I estimate that the Redskins have a 35% chance of victory, but if they win, and especially if they do it in convincing fashion, they will be in good position.

From what I've seen, they probably will not win. I hope I'm wrong.
Very hard at this point to say we are playoff caliber, even if we win in Carolina GTripp. You have to say at best we will finish 3rd in our division. WE can beat the Cowboys, but not the Gmen or the Eagles. The Saints will smoke us, and ATL will win in the dome. Sand Diego is a toss up. KC and Oakland should be easy wins.

IF things hold steady it will be: New York taking the East
New Orleans taking the South
Arizona taking the West
Minnesota taking the North

Eagles wildcard
Bears, Packers, or ATL the other wildcard


Sure a lot of stuff can happen between now and January, but unless we are helped by divine intervention, we won't make the playoffs in '09.

Yeah, I'm one of the few here who actually root for my team to win.
Rooting blindly and rooting as a realist are two totally different things.

I'm sure Lions fans root for their team to win week after week but know that they probably won't.

I don't get why people who see flaws in their team are somehow less of a fan than people who are blind homers. Maybe it's just me, but I see there's an obvious line growing and there shouldn't be.

Good one Dynamite. Too many folks call other fans haters if they don't see a win coming our way on Sunday or don't like an aspect of how the team is playing. A fan should stay hopeful/positive for sure, but there are times when you know you are porbably going to bite the dust. My brother in law is a die hard Lions fan, always will root for them even if he thinks they will lose. I hope the Skins beat Carolina and somehow turn it around, but recent history has shattered those hopes time and time again. Just can't see us making the playoffs playing as poorly as we are now.

Niners take the West w/o a doubt. I'm rooting for NO to win it all this year...I hope those dudes stay healthy!

I expect that after this week's game, we'll change our logo to this (can we make this an avatar? It is matty's favorite "doh" face afterall):

One of the best things I ever read on this site was Daseal's signature: "Apparently not having unrelenting optimism means you're not a fan."

I will root for the Redskins always, but I'm not expecting diddly poo at this point. The way I see it, with the Redskins, expectations are premeditated resentments.

Re: What do you expect in our Week 5, Skins vs. Panthers matchup

jake delhomme throws the ball wild which should be good for our secondary to come together and get some picks. They are desperate for a win but think we are push overs and easy victory. Everything that has happened with this week with the arguing and the hiring has probably made this team a little on edge, ready to put a stop to all this talk of washington sucks and the boo birds chirpping. We have great match ups all around so with that.

I predict redskins victory score I cant tell u but as long as we win and I do beleave in a way we have all been longing for an all out asskicking.

Re: What do you expect in our Week 5, Skins vs. Panthers matchup

It's not in me to give up hope but the truth is I don't think we are a playoff team right NOW. But the C-Men turn it around the year they won the super bowl and the Steelers did too. Not to say we on either of this teams level because we are NOT right NOW. Anything can happen tho I've seen bizzare things in my life and it could happen who knows.

Our defense can't wreck a house made out of a deck of cards.

Panthers get their first win of the season

30-24

Re: What do you expect in our Week 5, Skins vs. Panthers matchup

The team has had its "legs" chopped out from under it due to moves by Cerrato (hiring another "set of eyes"), Snyder (giving a ton of money to Haynesworth, thus creating dissension among the other D-Linemen), and Portis (griping about his blockers, namely Mike Sellers, with Portis always appearing to say it's not his fault). I will be surprised if there is nothing more than a very disorganized, poorly managed Redskins team that takes the field on Sunday. I expect a loss.

Re: What do you expect in our Week 5, Skins vs. Panthers matchup

It is kind of crazy that at 2-2, the Skins have looked frazzled this week and made some curious moves, while Carolina is at 0-3 and seems relaxed and confident from what I have read (Maybe a sense of urgency, but not panic?).

Unfortunately, despite the better record, I think the Skins will struggle and lose this game. I'll say 20-13

We will be down 17-0 at halftime,then in the 3rd quarter we score 13 points to close the gap 17-13. Then in the 4th the Panthers add a TD to win the game 24-13.
