Battle for NFC LEAST

So who will end up in the NFC East cellar this year? Cowboys or Skins?

At one time it looked like a lock for the Cowpokes but now with some stellar losses and a tough schedule to finish out the season my money is on our burgundy and gold!

And who said we couldn't repeat this year???



Sorry meant for this to be in the locker room, my fail!

I've got to say it's us at this point who will end up last. We look like hot garbage on both sides of the ball. Garrett is 3-1 in Dallas with Jon Kitna as his QB, and the Cowboys actually look like they're having fun now. They seemed to just grind every week under Phillips.

And they need to be starting Tashard Choice every week. I don't see Marion Barber on that team next year.

Re: Battle for NFC LEAST

sadly us, and so another year ends up being a depressing ride for skins fans. really, it's a pain when you can't even enjoy your rivals gaffes because you know, that they will end up doing better, and we will just keep repeating the same old song.

Re: Battle for NFC LEAST

Dallas is a Roy Williams fumble away from being 4-0 under Jason Garrett. Even with Romo and Dez Bryant out for the season, Dallas has far more talent, and more importantly, they're playing like they're auditioning for jobs - the hunger is there. I'm not seeing that across the board here, so I would have to say that our Skins are destined for the cellar.

I would love it if we had a parade for coming in last 3 years in a row and then MS gives a speech much like Pat Riley's speech (go to 1:50 in the video) saying we are going to repeat again next year as the cellar dwellers!

Problem for them is Jerry does:

Re: Battle for NFC LEAST

When the Cowboys were 1-7 I couldn't envision them beating us out for 3rd place in the division, but we all know how that has started looking now. I think they will beat us out for 3rd place, but honestly I'm not too concerned about it. At least if we have a shitty team for the rest of the season we'll have a better draft pick. I didn't see us finishing with a worse record than Minnesota either but we're both 5-7 now.

Re: Battle for NFC LEAST

No question the Cowboys are playing better football now than the Skins are. What the Skins did yesterday in NY/NJ was about as embarrassing a performance as a team can put out there.


Reality is harsh.


It was only a month ago that we had a thread going about what was going to fall in place to assure that the Skins would win the NFC East and get to the playoffs. That was fun while it lasted.


Now comes reality - - harsh reality.


The good news? There is no way that the Skins will have a worse record in 2010 than they did in 2009. You can take that bit of reality to the bank.

Re: Battle for NFC LEAST

I agree that the Cowturds are playing well and we are playing poorly.

But losing in NY was to be expected. And that team from Dallas will come to earth. I think we'll pick it up enough to edge out the Pokes for 3rd.

Re: Battle for NFC LEAST

we play

tampa
dallas
jacksonville
nyg

dallas plays

philly
us
arizona
philly

i really think it will come down to the cowboys redskins game, if the cowboys win that they finish third if we win we get third. i really don't see us beating any of our other opponents remaining but maybe dallas. the buc, giants, and jags are playing better football than us and are fighting for playoff spots. unfortunatly i think the coyboys will end up in third and we will be on the bottom which is actually where we belong anyway.

Re: Battle for NFC LEAST

I'm not sold on Tampa quite yet

I really don't know what to make of Jacksonville this year, didn't think they'd be the team to finally knock the Colts from the top of the division...maybe they'll have clinched and be resting MJD when we play them

I must say that Tampa has done a good job at beating bad teams.

Tampa has also competed hard against good teams - they gave Atlanta all they could handle yesterday. What really depresses me is that cellar dwellers like Detroit, St. Louis, and Tampa have gotten younger and faster, and will probably be perennial playoff contenders before we will.
