Yeah, but even if the Redskins finish 7-9 or 8-8 and miss the playoffs, it still burns me up because of the games that were won by the offense and given away by the defense. St. Louis Rams, Cincinatti Bengals, NY Giants in week 7 are all games the Redskins should have never lost. Given all the injuries that this team has suffered we are still able to compete and go blow for blow with teams every week. This team at the very least realistically should be sitting comfortably at 8-3 right now.

NFC 6th seed will have an 8-8 record. Mark my words.

If we beat NY and Baltimore, we will be in the playoffs.

People are talking about playoffs when in reality, we may not even win another game and finish the season 5-11. This is how it could realistically pan out. Remaining games are:

vs NYG=Loss- They are simply a better team than us on both sides of the ball and has gelled stronger as a team since we played them in week 7.

vs Baltimore=Loss- Another good team who has had 4 game winning streaks TWICE this season

@ Cleavland=Loss-Tough game. Cleavland took Dallas into overtime in Dallas. They don't have many weapons but Trent Richardson is a beast and they are a gritty tough nosed team.

@ Philly=Loss-In Philly, tough environment. Got the upperhand on them the first time but teams adjust and watch tape for the second time you come up against them. Andy Reid may be trying to save his job so the team will come out hungry and prepared.

vs Dallas=Loss. Same statement as above, we already played them once and teams adjust for the second matchup. Jason Garrett will propably be on the hot seat as well and desperate for this win.

The Redskins have no homefield advantage playing in Fedex so that's not a pro against NYG, Bmore and Dallas. We also had and still have one of the worst if not worst passing defenses in the league as was on full display against Dallas in the second half. Josh Wilson and Deangelo Hall will not magically turn into Darrelle Revis/Champ Bailey and shut down Cruz, Nicks, Torrey Smith, Dez Bryant. Madoodoo Williams will not magically become a starting caliber NFL safety. The Redskins defense will not all of a sudden start generating pressure on the opposing QB without blitzing, Orakpo and Carriker. Jim Haslett will not transform into Dick Lebeau in the next few days. Kyle Shanahan will not turn into an offensive guru overnight and stop calling plays that make you scratch your head on 3rd and short.

No harm in hoping for miracles but let's not get ahead of ourselves or too dissapointed if the above happens.
You were saying?

It looks like the Redskins will be winning more than 7 or eight games. More like 10 games.

Hard to imagine all three losing. Da Bears will probably beat up on Cards and Giants will probably rebound on the Ravens.

Nah. Texans will demolish the Vikings and the Ravens will annihilate the Giants. for the Giants to lose the way they did against the Falcons I would say that they are done. Bears and Cardinals will be a good game but I doubt if Arizona gets the upset. I'd rather we win out and claim the NFC East and enter the playoffs as a 4th seed. Forget the other scenarios.

I think Ravens Giants will be alot closer than Bears Cards, but i also think Ravens and Bears come away victorious.

Re: Wild Card Chances as Fall Back Option

As much as I dislike Peyton's little brother (the one who eats Macaroni and Cheese with cut up hot dogs after his "big games"), we've seen this too many times from the Giants. They could well come out and smoke Baltimore by 40 points and get back to the SB again this season. But it should be a good game. Two teams rebounding off bad losses that have lots of pride and fantastic coaches.

I need the division. I couldn't stand the thought of the Cowboys winning the East by beating the Skins.
