Regardless of what happens the rest of the season, the goal needs to be getting the best QB available.

If you don't have a QB, you can't win in this league.
It's like beating a dead horse but it's just so true.. Look at the teams with bad QB play yearly.. They all suck

Re: Sliding Doors...

This was the game Washington had to win, and people in the building knew it. Dallas (10-4) is long gone for the division title. The best, most realistic postseason chance was securing the No. 7 seed in the NFC. The most realistic way to do that was to beat Philly twice, then beat the Giants in the season finale to finish with nine wins.

Eight isn’t going to be enough; nine now requires running the table. And that now means going down to Jerry World on four days’ rest this Sunday and somehow cobbling enough bodies together to beat a team that just dominated you 10 days ago for most of the game.

And that also would mean fixing a defense that got mauled Tuesday by Philly’s offensive line and two-tight end personnel, blasting Washington for 238 (!!!) yards rushing, with Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard taking turns gashing the front seven. When they got tired, Jalen Hurts ran wild and free. Jonathan Allen, stalwart as always, was the only exception to most of the beatdown; he was everywhere, again.

Unless we somehow run the table, we're not making the playoffs.

Even if we did, we still need 2 teams to lose. It's like a 5% chance of actually happening. The 4 straight wins got our hopes up

I believe if we win out and SanFran loses to the Titans and Rams we are in. I think.

Minny plays the rams and packers. No way they win out.

Re: Sliding Doors...

I hope only 10+ win teams make the playoffs. Yes I know that means we don't. Given our season I don't think the team deserves it. Even IF they were 5o win out.

If we win out and get in, that would mean we went 7-2 down the stretch. Why wouldn't that be deserving?

You crazy lol. Over .500 is perfectly reasonable to be a playoff team imo. Although I'm against adding more teams. I'd like it still to be 6 per conference.

Also, I don't care about deserving, I want in. By any means/record necessary.

Did you see the first half of the season? The NFL is already close to baseball where early games don't matter. Last year was different because of covid, but this year we had a full off-season. Getting hot or going 7-2 in the stretch should count for seeding but a deserving playoff team should at least be a competent team all season long. We were not.

Until we get the guy under center we are going to be doing this playoff scenario crap every year until the end of time.

2-6 is such a hard hole to dig out of. The amount of teams that are .500 or better is growing by the year. In todays nfl you HAVE to start fast.

I like 6 too but I really like only the one seed getting a bye. So far it seems to have made the season more meaningful down the stretch. Already week 15 and only one team has a ticket to the dance.

Agree good teams don't usually lose two games in a row in season let alone four.

You mean like the Chiefs who started 3-4? OK, one more win than us at that point, but everyone wrote them off like they had us before we went on our mini win streak.

Point is WITHOUT A TOP QB, anything like 2-6, 3-5, 4-4 etc. is a tough hole to climb out of. Playmakers make a difference, and wee just don't have one.
