Seeing the Giants get eliminated from contention this week would be sweet. After they (and many commentators) have been so presumptuous that they'd not only be in the playoffs but be the most dangerous team in the playoffs.

Plus, it would send Mara home to cry about a well-deserved failure of a season.

I think I will be cheering for that to happen almost as much as having the Skins clinch this week.

Also, the Pies clinch if they win and we and the G-strings both lose.

If they win/we lose this weekend and we beat them the following weekend...plus the Gints lose...that puts us in the Division lead and the playoffs rather than the Pokes. Right? Dallas can't clinch anything with a win & us losing this weekend. They won't beat out Seattle for a wildcard spot either. I believe one team is coming out of the NFC East -- the division winner.

Am I wrong?

Yeah, I was wrong. Turns out, there is no clinching scenario for the Pies this weekend.

THIS - I really want the win this week but ....

I REALLY WANT THE GIANTS TO GET ELIMINATED almost as much :D

I have a lot of faith that we can win both games but ...

having the Redskins win the NFC EAST and the pukes and the HATED giants out of the playoffs would be fantastic
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

So, our path to the playoffs is guaranteed by beating the Eagles and the Cowboys.

Does anybody know when was the last time that we swept both of those teams? I hate to sound like a negative ninny, but it must quite a while!

Anyway, history has no bearing on what happens in the next two weeks. The fact is: if the Redskins are good enough, we'll win these next two games and deserve to be in the playoffs. AND, we'll be one of the hottest teams around going into those playoffs.

That can't be right. If that happens, but we turn around and beat them in the last game, we'd have the same overall record, we'd be 1-1 against them and we would have a better division record.

It is NOT the case but that was 'straightened out' earlier :roll:



ALL that really matters here for the Skins and the dreaded "P" word - JUST win this game ....

the rest is just 'icing on the cake' - we'd all love to see the pukes and g strings lose just to make them and their stupid fans miserable :lol:

the g strings cannot lose or they're out - HOWEVER - the pukes and the Redskins can still make the playoffs with a loss this week ...




we are so very fortunate to be in this position - it's not a matter of IF we're 'good enough' or not - look at the g strings last year and the last time they played the Patriots in the SB - they were certainly NOT the best team .. they were just 'good enough' on that day - we are not a really good team .... YET ... BUT we're 'good enough' to have put ourselves in this position at this time of year

THAT IS ALL THAT COUNTS

IN the NFL - the "BETTER TEAM" does NOT even win most of the matches

the team that is "GOOD ENOUGH" on THAT day wins

The Redskins, right now, are GOOD ENOUGH to beat most teams in the NFL :wink:

2005.


The most magical year for the 'Skins since our last Super Bowl. The Monday Night Miracle during their ring of fame game, followed by that 35-7 pounding of the Cowboys at home with 3 Cooley TDs in the first half. Beating a surging Giants team at home to get to 9-6. Sean Taylor's fumble return to seal the Eagles game and take us to the playoffs, and then doing it again in our win over Tampa Bay — which was great payback for that '99 loss.

This year is shaping up to be just as magical, if not moreso. We have to take care of business today.

(Come to think of it, that year we gave TB a well-deserved payback for a playoff loss 6 years before, but then lost to Seattle. This year we might be in a position to avenge our playoff losses to the Seahawks that were an average of 6 years ago . . . :-k)

So, not that long ago :-) Not as much history against us as I thought. It's a long time since I had a feeling of positive expectation about the Redskins - I think I've forgotten how to deal with it.
