    Here is how it is going to play out: The Giants will implode. The division will come down to us vs. the Stinks at FEDEX on the last game of the season. We all know how well we do in those situations. Its a blowout waiting to happen and not in our favor. We all wished for a Stinks victory and we got it. They are now about to steal the division right out from under us, watch. It simply has to end this way. This is of course my PTSD from 2008 talking......:D

    It's time to see what this team is made of... Every team has injuries this time of the year. No excuses!

    Not every team is starting multiple guys off the street. At some point its no longer an excuse and just reality.

    Or it could be like 2011. Get down big, make a furious comeback in the 4th, then defense collapses and we fall short. We always seem to be in these "last game of the season" situations. :p:

    I stopped after " Warning....positive post"

    Just kidding. Hope we can put something together here. We just have to take care of business.

    anything is possible.

    my only hope is romo.

    I just wish him a super bowl run so he can retire with the credit he deserves.

    I'm thinking they'll finish 9-7 and lose a tie-breaker with the seahawks

    If we play like yesterday and the Deadskins play like they played tonight, I don't see us beating them in cold January weather in Washington.

    To get to the playoffs, off the top of my head we need six things to happen, and probably a lot more:

    1.) We need to score a lot of points
    2.) Our defense has to get the ball back once or twice a game, and our DB's need to catch the ball when the opposing QB throws it right to them.
    3.) No turnovers, no misreads by receivers that lead to picks, and Tony needs to watch for the linebackers sneaking over from right to left in coverage.
    4.) We need to run the ball effectively enough to at least get the opposing defense leaning forward a bit.
    5.) RHG needs to challenge bad spots and other mistakes by the officials, and he needs to manage the clock correctly at the end of the half and at the end of the game.
    6.) Whatever time the bus leaves for the stadium from the hotel, we need to add an hour when giving Free the departure time.

    As soon as Dez's fingertips landed out of bounds vs the Giants, I felt like that was going to be the play that would haunt us all offseason... just like the incomplete deep ball to Austin last year vs the Giants haunted us this past offseason.

    I hope like hell I'm wrong, obviously. Giants losing tonight was huge.

    My concern is not how low the temperature may get but playing in possible snow or cold rainy day.

    We are a passing team and they can run better than us. That's a advantage for them playing in cold and wet weather.

    My prediction.................it all comes down to the last game of the season with the Skins, winner takes the division, loser goes home. Only see 1 team from the East going to the playoffs.


    On the road against a Skins team that mauled us on Thanksgiving for the division.................cant say I am real confident at this moment, but at least the last game of the season will still mean something.

    Romo-Dez-Murray>RG3-Morris-Garcon

    I'll take our triple headed monster over theirs in a pressure game.

    It's not like the Skins can't.

    I'm worried about the Bengals. Their defense is on a tear right now. 4 sacks in each of the last 4 games and forcing turnovers. They have a tough DL and get pressure up the middle and on the edges. They're Redzone defense has only given up 1 TD on 8 attempts over the last 4 games, they blanked Oakland by not even allowing them in the Redzone and on the flipside they haven't been settling for FGs hardly at all on offense as they've converted on 13 of their last 17 trips.

    Going east, early game, losing an hour on the trip and playing against a team that is peaking. Just a tough situation.

    If the offense starts slow and the Bengals jump out to a lead and are able to pin their ears back because Dallas has to ditch running the ball, it's gonna be tough. Very tough.

    The recent defensive performances for Dallas have been pretty bad. If they don't pick it up the Bengals will score early and rush the passer all out.

    They didn't maul us. We mauled ourselves. We do the dumb things that gets you beat. We don't start playing until the second half.
    This whole thread is predicated on us not doing that again.
