+1 - totally agree

10-6 would mean we are the NFC East Champs - HOW great is that :lol:

that is a huge deal for this franchise

we are still getting there and these guys have done a lot better than anyone could have reasonably predicted

many here should just enjoy the ride :wink:
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

Besides a Week 17 win, we also need one of the following:
-Week 16 win.
-Giants Week 16 loss.
-Giants Week 17 loss.

Same for the Cowpukes interestingly enough.

EDIT: In other words, the ONLY way the Giants can win the division:
-they win their final two games, AND
-whoever wins Week 17 loses in Week 16.

To win the East we must beat the Cowboys.

Current probabilities:

We are suddenly at 66.5%.

We are 53% to be the 4 seed.

We are 3% to be the 3 seed.

We cannot get a bye.

The most likely scenario is Washington hosting Seattle.

They've knocked us out twice recently ... at their place. Payback would be very nice.

There is an outside chance we could host an NFC title game. :shock:

Actually, we can clinch a playoff spot THIS week with a win and ALL of the following:
NYG loss @ BAL (possible)
CHI loss @ ARI (possible; both teams crap now)
MIN loss @ HOU (unlikely)

I see them this way:
NYG loss @ BAL (very possible)
CHI loss @ ARI (very improbable)
MIN loss @ HOU (very likely)

Yes ... but not the division. We must beat the Cowgirls to win the East.

Why is VIK losing @ TEX unlikely?

Packers
Redskins
Seahawks
Bears



we just need to win this game, this week

:oops: I flipped that. Still stand by the other two; none of those 4 teams is much right now.

Yes, I want the team to make the playoffs, but I SOOOOO want the team to win the division. How good would it be to go into the Cowboys game knowing we are in the playoffs, but the winner of that game wins the division!

Talk about meaningful December football!!!!!

I also want to host the CHawks! It would be nice to play them at our place. Maybe our PA guy can figure out how to leave the speakers on amplifying the crow noise like they did to us the last time we played them in the playoffs! I'm so sick and tired of the NFL letting them get away with that.

They've been accused of piping in extra crowd noise. Their claim is that the stadium was designed to amplify the crowd noise acoustically.

Dan Graziano:

Giants, Skins could clinch spots this week
December, 17, 2012
DEC 17
6:55
PM ET
By Dan Graziano | ESPN.com
RECOMMEND102TWEET66COMMENTS1KEMAILPRINT
In this morning's post about NFC East playoff scenarios, I did not mention the possibility that any of our division's teams might actually be able to clinch anything in Week 16. But we all mull this stuff over and look at all kinds of scenarios all day, just like you guys do. We even use the Playoff Machine. And as we do that, new information and possibilities come to light.

So I'm here to fill you in, with the help of ESPN Stats & Information, on the chances that the Washington Redskins or the New York Giants could clinch playoff spots this week.

The Giants clinch a playoff spot this week if they win and the Cowboys, Redskins, Vikings and Bears all lose. This is because, even though a Week 17 loss by the Giants would cost them the tiebreaker against the Cowboys-Redskins winner for the division title, they'd win tiebreakers over any combination of the Seahawks, Vikings and Bears in the wild-card race.

The Redskins clinch a playoff spot this week if they win and the Giants, Vikings and Bears all lose. That's because, even if they lost to the Cowboys in Week 17 and failed to win the division, they'd win wild-card tiebreakers over any combination of the Seahawks, Giants, Vikings and Bears.

One other note: According to NFL.com, via The Newark Star-Ledger, the Giants could actually be eliminated from playoff contention this week. Here it is.

The Giants are eliminated from playoff contention if they lose, the Redskins and Cowboys win and the Seahawks win or tie. This is because a Giants loss would mean they can win no more than nine games, whereas the Seahawks would have 10 (or nine and a tie) and the winner of the Week 17 Redskins-Cowboys game would be guaranteed to have at least 10.

So, a little bit on the line for the Giants this week, it would seem!


Quoted fwiw only SkinsJock. Not making any qualitative comments about what our team or we should/shouldn't be focused on on the road to the playoffs.
