Re: Playoff Scenarios

I cant even believe they allowed this post to begin with. Do you really think the Skins have a shot. Well, mathmatically they do, but honostly who are you trying to kid. Dallas, NY, Philly, Arizona, and St Louis on the road. We may win 1 of those games. Dallas and NY will hand our asses to us, philly isn't as bad as people think they are without Donovan and TO, well atleast they are as good as we are right now. Arizona can score points and well as St Louis. I can not believe people are putting playoff scenarios out here. Be realistic people. Look at the teams ahead of us. Dallas, Giants, Atlanta, Carolina, Seattle, Bears, Tampa are all atleast 2 games infront of us. Not to mention Vikings are 1 game ahead. and most of them are 3 games ahead. We can not compete against any of those teams. I hate to sound gloom and doom, but its just the facts. We are not a good football team. Good teams dont let under 500 teams come to our stadium and beat us. Good teams dont surrender fourth quarter leads. Good teams run the clock out at the end of games, they dont go 3 and out every possession in the 4th quarter. They make 50+ yard field goals. We are just a 500 or worse team.

explain the point of the thread then. It seems to me everyone is what if this and what if that. Its rediculous. This is the conversation every year at this point. Last year it was if we win out and finish 7-9 and if this team loses and that team loses we get in because of this tie breaker here and conference record here. When are us Redskin fans going to start being realistic. I think the last few weeks has caused me to start looking at the true team we have and not what if we do this and that. People dont have to see things the same way I do, and I dont expect them to. I just want to put my side of thinking out there and maybe open some peoples eyes up that we are not that good, and not going to the playoffs. Realistically speaking of course.

See, this is why I prefaced this thread for bullshit like this. Normally, I don't take stuff personally, but I will take this one personally. Why even say anything? If you don't have faith, that's fine and dandy, but come on now, why even waste the space on the page? The point of the thread is to give some hope to anyone who has faith. Do I think the Skins will do it? Probably not. I DO think that there is a chance and I just wanted to point that out to the rest of us who still have an inkling of faith left. I mean I COULD have started another "The sky is falling" threads, but where's the fun in that?

I respect your opinion on how the Skins will likely finish the season. FWIW, I agree with you. However, that's not what he asked. He just asked, if we win out, what has to happen for us to win the division? This has nothing to do with "realism" - it's just a question.

If you don't want to discuss the topic of this thread, then don't. However, some of us do.

Re: Playoff Scenarios

From what I have read if we win out we will be in the playoffs. We would have the tie breaker with every team except TB.

Re: Playoff Scenarios

I think we have to have the Giants lose one because I don't like our chances with the wild card. We either win the division or we go home (pretty much, otherwise the wild card picture is EXTREMELY CLOUDY).

Dont talk to me about faith. I have been through this year after year for the last 12 years. When the Skins start winning some games and prove to me and some other people out there that they are even worthy of a "what if" thread, then I will be all over the playoff scenario bandwagon. But, until then I just have lost all "realistic" hope. Until we lose #8 we are mathmatically still in the hunt. I was wondering how many people would get pissed off at the first person who said the skins stink. Dont take it personally dude, its nothing against you or anyone else. I am just tired of the same crap year in and year out. but as you know, I will be infront of the TV watching every Sunday jumping, yelling, screaming, drinking with all the other skins fans out there. saying well, maybe this week!!!
