The Redskins would be in the Playoffs if...
If the Skins win @ home against a St. Louis team that won 2 games all year.
If Josh Brown misses the 49 yard FG.
If we had a punter all year long like the one we had the last few weeks.
If we didn't have a Kicker like the one we had the last few weeks.
If the Skins beat a Cincy team that won 3 games all year.
If it didn't take 15 games to figure out how to use Jason Taylor.
If it didn't take 15 games for Randle El to take his first step forward after fielding a punt, instead of left or right or backwards.
If the Skins could have capitalized on turnovers and scored in the redzone against the Steelers or Cowboys.
If every set of downs on Offense didn't go like this:
1rst down - 3 yard out to Cooley
2nd down - run with Portis
3rd down - slant to Moss
If we give the ball to Portis against Cincy on 1rst and goal, or 2nd, or 3rd.
If any of our first 3 draft picks of 2008 would have produced on the field.
I could go on and on, but whats the point? The bottom line is this, the NFC East is the best Division in the NFL and there is a fine line between a 10-6 record or a 6-10 record. Normally the difference is just a few plays over the course of a 16 week season. The fact is the Skins just didn't make those plays.
So where do we go from here? Well, the off season starts soon that is normally filled with lots of drama and new found hope. I for one love my team more than ever and will be ready to ride the emotional roller coaster again next season.
Besides we are going to win the Super Bowl next year, if ......
Cheers and Hail
