    It's only a must win if it's a do or die game.

    Well, don't forget the Rams is one of our two third place games. The Gnats reward for passing us with their meaningless Week 17 win is a date with the Seahawks, while the Deadskins will take on the 49ers. If we lose to the Rams, we can toss out any advantage we might gain from this....

    Not a must win but you really need to win this. You are at home and have a chance to take sole possession of 1st in the East. Yeah it's early and that doesn't matter but any little bit helps.

    But the Skins were 3-6 at one point I think last year and ended up winning the East.

    The east is terrible this year. It won't take many games to win the thing. So it's definitely not a must win. But I'm sure we will see one of these posts every single week.

    That seems little hyperbolic.

    Anyone who says during Week 3 that a game is a "must win" doesn't understand football.

    He is at least better than 10 qbs in the league right now, maybe 15-20. Do Gabbert, Henne, Weeden, Sanchez, Locker, Ponder, just to name a few, also make your list over the last 40 years?

    How many times does this happen? Not very often and it won't happen two years in a row.

    seriously?

    i took you to be sharper than that.

    that loser could not even take a first and ten after the opening kickoff for anything

    could not take a first and goal after the muffed punt for a td.. etc.etc.

    the defense won that game.

    Patriots are still the patriots. Bills aren't half bad and Miami is 2-0.

    I get it that "must-win" is generally viewed as being purely mathematical. But, we could also ask fans this question: "If the Cowboys lose to the Rams at home after losing to KC on the road, do you think they will then beat the Chargers on a west coast road trip, and follow that up with a win at home over Peyton Manning and the Broncos?

    I agree. Far too much clinging on the literal meaning of it and now what it actually entails, which is 1-2. Pretty much a scenario most wouldn't have predicted entering a tough stretch.

    Well it happened last year. It can sure happen again this year. No one is running away with this thing. So let's see we go 5-7, reel off a couple of wins to get to 7-7. And split the last 2 and finish 8-8. 8 wins could easily be enough to win this division this year.

    If we were in the NFC West or AFC West, ok then maybe needing a win badly would be the case. Not the case this year.

    The reasons you listed are great examples of why it ISN'T a must-win.

    So wait. You have everyone virtually losing this week and that makes it a MUST win for us?
