    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    To me the biggest difference this season is that the Giants plain and simple have won more of the games they were supposed to win.

    The Redskins were able to beat the Vikings and Packers while the Giants lost to both. But both of those teams were playing very well when the Giants faced them.

    Meanwhile, the Redskins really stubbed their toes in losses to sub .500 teams in the Cardinals, Panthers and that tie against the Bengals.

    If the Redskins had won the game against the Bengals, which was 99.99% their's, a victory this week would have tied them with the Giants at 10 wins and Washington would have been the #1 wildcard with the tiebreaker.

    Yep. If we don't make the playoffs, it will be hard not to look back at this one play ...



    Well, that and perhaps the worst defense in Redskins history.

    Six games this year that were decided by 5 or fewer points. 2-3-1 in those six games so yeah they were close but win any of those four that weren't wins. They'll get there - good teams win those close games. Last year 3-1 in games decided by 5 or fewer so they can get those.

    That's one of the reasons there are still critics of Cousins out there.

    Putting the Bengals game aside as a clear loss on the part of special teams, a number of those other games we put up great yardage totals but failed to translate that into points.

    Cousins threw for 450 yards against the Cowboys but we only scored 26 points.

    And putting up 15 points on Monday Night Football against Carolina at home against a 5-9 team really leaves a bad taste still, weeks later.

    Notice that the same Panthers defense faced Matt Ryan last week and he boiled them in their own skin and the Falcons won going away.

    Actually, a couple of those were total failures of the defense, Detroit and Arizona. Cousins drove the team for the go ahead score, only to have the defense collapse, and give up the game.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    It's nice when all parts of the team work to perfection but that just doesn't always happen. Sometimes your O has to cover a bad day by the D, sometimes the other way around, sometimes it's STs that needs to bail the team out. The team didn't do that much this year. No excuses for the various disasters but you got to have your guys back. It seemed like a lot of 'I give up' from the coaches down to the players.

    Detroit - yes a fail on Defense but they still kept them to 20 points. Someone else coulda bailed them out especially if you have one of the top scoring offenses. Today, one big play by the D and the game ends differently. Defense played good but when the other guys aren't doing well someone else needs to step up even more. Get the big return on STs, something.

    Actually this would've been their 7th game this year decided by 5 or fewer points if they didn't turn it over for a TD on the very last play. So those games actually could be 2-4-1. Seven games that close, you just need to find some way to win more than you don't.
