We're improved from last year, but we're just not quite there yet. Once we stop giving the ball away, we will go a lot father. Until then, keep scratching your heads.

Our playoff hopes arent completley flushed down the toilet, but they are swirling around pretty fast.

The playoff hopes are not dead but they are on lifesupport. The numbers are starting to not add up for the skins and having 2 games to make up in the Div and the WC is going to be really hard to to. That said all the redskins can do is get back to winning and keep winning, they cant control the teams they are chasing but they can control themselves.

Re: Playoff Hopes Dead?

First of all, let's kill all of this rubbish that Brunell sucks...I won't even entertain that other thread. He's not responsible for dropped passes and poor pass protection. In fact, on a couple of drives he ran for first downs - twice!

Secondly, we'll have to flat out win every single game from here on out to have a shot. Can it happen? - sure. It will be a long shot, however.

So glad we have LaVar...and I hope he's a Skin next year!!!

Skins will need to run the table now to make the playoffs, they'll have to take 5 of 6 at least. I doubt that's possible especially now with the injuries starting to pile up.

Re: Playoff Hopes Dead?

I think it's doable, Matty. If we can get pass San Diego - it's very doable, IMO.

Nah, we're a .500 ballclub that will have to rebuild next year. All of these rebuilding years seem to lead to nothing but more rebuilding.

Re: Playoff Hopes Dead?

At this point I'm hoping for 9-7, that actually wouldn't be a bad thing considering our horrible turnover ratio and general inconsistency on both sides of the ball.

I beg to differ...I think we're more like an 11-5 - 10-6 ballclub with a few correctable deficiencies. I know it's late in the year to start talking about "correctables", but we'll see how this thing plays out.

Re: Playoff Hopes Dead?

Gotta ride with Matty, If we win 5 of our last 6 to get to (10-6) We have a shot. I think we have a better chance of getting in winning the division than getting a wild card birth.

We still have a solid conference record. We can and will get in. It is not how you start it is how you finish. I am a homer but I refuse to believe we will not turn this around and make some noise. We are so close. Keep the faith brothers!!

You got it Matty, anything less than 5 of 6 wont get the job done.

Re: Playoff Hopes Dead?

Suppose, just suppose we win the rest of our games. That's right, go undefeated here on out - can we make the playoffs??

I hope you're right. But, we're a team with a very old coaching staff and a QB on his last hoorah. I say we give this group one more season then start an across-the-board youth movement. We all know it's something we need to do. Otherwise, we'll have another 10 years of less-than-average football in the D.C. area.

I agree the staff could use some tweaking. But we have a lot of youth on the ballclub. I don't think any wholesale changes are warranted.

Consider the following are really young:

S.Moss
Cooley
Portis
Rabach
Marshall
Taylor
C.Rogers
Lavar (what 27ish)

I think we can mix some younger guys in with this group. But I hear what you're saying - one more and no more!!
