Re: Playoff Predictor

For some reason, I'm not buying Seattle. They're like Hyde when not playing at home.

I didn't realize the NFL is currently judging the quality of victories like the BCS, but if we're being objective, the only statement win the Seahawks have is against the Cowboys. Every other victory they have against a winning team has been a squeaker(including a gift from the replacement officials). They've also lost to the Cardinals, Rams, Lions, and Dolphins. All teams that I would classify as inferior to them, and all on the road.

If they drop 30+ on the Niners, I'll buy into their recent hot streak.

We hammered the Eagles to start this streak, so there's your big win over a bad team. Heck what about yesterday? On the road with a backup rookie QB and we put up 38... Not impressed?
Of course I'm impressed. As I've said, we found a way to win a lot of close games. All of our games this year have come down to the last few minutes of the game. Even this Sunday vs the browns, we didn't pull away from them until late in the 4th quarter. The game wiuld never have been as close as it was if we were a dominant team. If the Seahawks had played the browns, it would have been 45-7 or something like that. That's just not something were capable of with our defense. Yeah, seattles laid some eggs earlier in the year, but so did we. Right now, were both hot, but Seattle is a much more complete team.

How can you say we didn't really dominate the Browns game? We basically gave the Browns a gift with Cousins' first interception. I mean literally. Trent Richardson rushed for paltry 28 yards. The final score of the Browns game really doesn't tell the full story. We dominated in time of possession and the Browns didn't manage to get 300 yds in total offense.

I know people are going to be enamored by the Seahawks because they put up fifty burgers on two teams back to back. But, they win mainly at home. They have lost six of their eight road games this year. I don't really see them as any more of a complete team as the Redskins at this point.

I was wondering about what scenarios we'd win the division at 9-7. None of them seem particularly realistic to me. If we're a good team, we'll trash the eagles... i'm a little scared of the cowboys though. Yeah, we've beaten them once, but they generally dont choke until they get to the playoffs. Still, a (likely primetime) week 17 home game vs our most hated rival for the division title and a playoff home game.... i can't imagine a more exciting game.

There are three scenarios in place. But the most stable is the Redskins winning the next two games and winning the NFC East at 10-6.

1. head-to-head
2. division record

I hope that we lose our next two games so that we can get a better draft position.

Lol. Last year Dallas fans wanted us to "suck for ___", this year Rams fans want the same.

You are a heretic unbeliever in the greatness of John Beck. When the clouds part and Beck appears from the sky to throw 25 TD's a game, you will be shamed!
