I'm not worried about making the playoffs this year, I will be ecstatic if we end at 8-8, but not disappointed if we end up 7-9 which is very possible. After the season we've had this year and the scrutiny that Joe Gibbs has been under, I think 7-9 is a great accomplishment.

Boswell actually says that we can slip in at 7-9, if things fall right. But I don't know what scenario he's thinking of:

From today's Post:

"I'm hoping we play great down the stretch. I'm proud to be with our guys," said Gibbs, whose team actually has a not-insignificant chance to make the playoffs if it could somehow finish with a 7-9 record in the weak NFC this season. "Now, who knows? Fight hard down the stretch and who knows?"

Is this really possible?

PS All I really wanted from this year were improvments and meaningful games in December. We may get both.

IF we win out, I think we have a pretty good shot.

But first, let's play Philly and see what happens.

Many people think I'm a pessimist (see my early-season discussion of Brunell or Gibbs' playcalling). Many others think I'm an optimist (see my discussion of our WRs as great). I like to consider myself a realist.

I realistically think that the Redskins CAN, repeat CAN make the playoffs. They'd be one and done, but it is possible for the 'Skins to make the postseason.

If the Redskins can beat the Eagles, they will spank the 49ers (who anyone can beat), Cowboys (who we almost beat with Brunell at the helm), and Vikings (who haven't won a single outdoor game this year and usually stink by Week 14). If the Redskins beat the Eagles, their confidence will be high, their play will be excited and determined, and they will have an honest shot at the playoffs.

HOWEVER, I think the Eagles are too much for just about any team in the NFC (the 'Skins included). I expect to lose this game by two scores and miss the playoffs.

i could be mistaken but i believe the first tie breaker is head to head not conference record so the bears lions and bucs would lose to us in that situation but i believe were all grasping at straws because we finally won a damn game

So do we need the Cowboys to win tonight or the Seahawks?

i believe the cowboys winning would help our cause more than the seahawks because assuming we win out we would take the tie breaker over the cowboys due to a tie in the head to head and in all probability a better division record but a seahawks loss puts them and the rams at six and six and gives us a better chance at one of them losing three of there last four and finishing at 7-9 behind us but its all speculation we still have to beat the 11-1 eagles then run the table not likely but we can hope

Optimism is much more fun than talking about the draft in early December!

Head to head only counts if there are only two teams tied with similar records. If more than one team has the same record, it goes to conference records. Since the only way the skins get in is by being 8-8, expect a multi team tie.

As for the buc, bears and lions, we win b/c of our better conference record. (IF we go 8-8).

I am with Ramseyfan, I think IF we beat the eagles we have a good shot at making the playoffs. the two teams that may edge us are the 2nd place team in the west or Carolina. We have the tiebreakers against everybody else AND all the other contenders play someone who they shoulld lose to.

BUT as I have been saying elsewhere FIRST beat Philly, then we'll talk playoffs.

Philly is sky high right now. It will take a better game than we played against the Giants to beat them.

All i can think about now is the Philly game.....
I really want us to pull out a win.... I think we are
a better team than last time, Ramsey is more comfortable,
and hopefuilly if we get our running game established early,
Play strong defense, playoff discussions will escalate even more
