Simple question. Don't go over everything and all that... We know the details from the other threads about it. Just say yes or no. Will we make the playoffs?

No. 7-9 teams don't go, or deserve to, the playoffs.

This is a different team that the one that had a four game losing streak early in the year. Maybe not vastly differnet, but we're as any 5-9 or 6-8 team out there right now. I understand your POV, but if we (or any 7-9 team) got hot and won the SB then they deserve it! Kudos to them for pulling it together.

I voted no. That Maybe So option should be stricken, though. Come on, take a stand, people. It's not like you're going to be fined for incorrect answers.

I voted maybe simply because we don't control our own destiny. I think we will win out and it'll be sad if we lose on a tie breaker... So it wasn't really a wishy washy thing on my part.

Hey, that's a non-associated expense and I don't think hR taxpayers should have to foot the bill for that.........unless I was there to help with the consumption.

Yes. The bad luck we've been getting all year long finally goes our way, and we get in. Although there's a long list in order for us to get to the playoffs, all the games can definately go our way. I have no doubt in my mind that we can win out. Dallas is not a good team, and the Vikings will fall flat for yet another year. It ain't over until the fat lady sings.

No we will not make the playoffs. Fact is that in order to make the playoffs this year not only do we have to win, but we have to have a great deal of luck. In the 12+ years that I have been a fan of this team, both have been very hard to come by, especially the latter.

In 1997 we went 9-7 but the NFC was too strong, and we missed out on a playoff spot. In 1998 we went 10-6 and won our first playoff game. We might have gotten to the NFC championship, but we lost to the Buccaneers on a BOTCHED SNAP. In 1999 we went 8-7-1 and while the record wasn't that good, we missed out on the playoffs because of a horrible call in the end zone in a Jets-Lions game that helped start debate about instant replay.

Sorry, but you will be dissapointed if you think we make the playoffs this year, you are fooling yourself.

u got the years messed up. in 99 we went to the playoffs. but i see what u mean. geez, when u look at our seasons each year, we havent been a HORRIBLE team like the media has been saying, but not good enough to get to the playoffs. thats probably why last year was so painful. but oh well, we got sean taylor because of it!

We will not make the playoffs this year. A lot of things must happen in order to do so.

If our offense continues to develop and do finish up strong, I will be more than satisfied.

voted maybe so.........if not I woulda voted yes........there is hope and I'm a born optimist...........there is no doubt in my mind that we will win out.....the Giants will lose and the Rams will loose to Philly..........NO and Car. play each other in wk 17 so there's 1 more loss.....but there is a chance that the winner there would have won in week 16 even though TB has been tough at home lately and Vick should take out cousin Brooks. It will all come down to week 17.

i voted maybe so, i'm sure we can win out and that just leaves it up to the teams we need to win or lose to get in. the scenario isn't that far fetched. i have a very high anticipation for this weekend of football, the dallas game would be enough to have me going crazy this week but now there are some many other factors in other games. i want to skip xmas alltogether and get to sunday.

Did you know:

Only four teams have .500 or better after the division leaders for Conference records:

Washington, Minnesota, St. Louis, and Carolina. Remember when JG sent a message in the preseason game against Carolina?

If he wanted to rush into getting a winner, we'd have one, but at what expense? 1 yr and then fold? The wait is worth it to run off a string of great years, instead snap, crackle and pop!

Stay tuned, this aint over till it's over, cause, We PLAY Minnesota last! We can hang one on them!

Meant to add that also the Skins make this happen each time they play at least 75% to their potential. They haven't hit 100% yet, and with all the negatives, they are still in it. Unfrickin' believable!

12-21-2004, 10:40 PM
I say no, simply because too many interconnected things have to go right for us to get a playoff spot.

Of even more concern is beating Dallas. They have pretty much owned us for years. Even though Dallas is on the downward slope now, it won't be an easy game. We're just not that dominant yet.

Let's beat Dallas: beat Minnesota and spoil their playoof chances --- then call it a 'decent' returning season for Joe Gibbs. Not a great return, not a good return - just decent. After so long away from the game - perhaps that's all we should have expected.

I think we gotta focus on Dallas right now. They've been kicking our ass for the last few seasons and all this playoff talk hinges on us winning a road game against a team that's owned us.

Back in the day when we needed a big win, we just went and took it. beating dallass in dallass (whether or not we go to the playoffs) would really do wonders for this team next season.

We just need to worry about dallas and Minnie. The Redskins do not control the other teams, we just have to wait and see. I voted maybe, because anything can happen. Case in point, miami beat new england monday night.

I agree but as a fan if the 1:00 games go well, I will be in in a sports bar to run around and cheer for the various 4:00 games!!! It is going to be fun!

Do you think Carolina can beat The Bucs at the Ship? Do you think NO can take the Falcs? Do you think Stl. can beat Philli? Washington has the best conference record when at least one of the these teams goes 7-9 by default(baring a tie), or 6-10 in Stl. case. When we beat Dallas and take care of Minni. the the #6 seed will go to the Redskins.

I thought all of them have to finish 7-9, since vikings & packers are guaranteed a 8-8 season. Stl. might be able to beat philly and NO can definately beat "Vickless" falcons. I still hope we control our playoff hopes in the season finale vs. Vikings.
