Wilson has the best shot of the two. I don't think Dak could have done it.
I've done this more often than I care to admit.
Stopped your pressers midstream?
Convenient excuse to get away from the heathens
This guy was so atrocious here....how is he still employed beyond his last name?
Can we make fun of him for using one of the lamest hot sauces there is?
His dad was an NFL coach for a long time. So just like Flounder, he is a legacy.
that’s what I’m saying.....beyond his name, he brings jack IMO.
Now wait a minute! Okay, this guy is a real zero. That's true. So this guy is a total loser? Let me tell you the story of another loser...
It was posted in the last thread but the Athletic article about the team standing behind Rivera despite at 1-5 start is pretty good read. Basically nobody revolted or went Cowboys on the team or trashed the coaches. They seem very complimentary of Ron too and the work ethic is better at "WFT Park"
Things are swinging up. But that always seems the case after a win, against a hated rival.
imagine how people would be talking if they were 3-4 and actually IN first place.
IF this team can harness their new found confidence, beat NYG, then beat Det? 4-5 with Cinci and Dallas again coming up?
it’s not impossible. Gotta beat the Giants first.
Just look at the Eagles schedule. It’s pretty hard as well after the next 3 or so.
the division *may* come down to that last name in Philly. They host the Skins.
I think it'll come down to how quickly the Eagles get healthy (or not). They are decimated with injuries right now... DJax, Lane Johnson, Zack Ertz, Jason Peters, Malik Jackson, Hassan Ridgeway, Alshon Jeffrey, Avonte Maddox, Miles Sanders, Dallas Goedert, Jalen Reagor, Isaac Seumalo, Brandon Brooks, Andre Dillard... the list goes on. Some of those guys will be back and some won't. There's no question that Philly is hands-down a better team when they're healthy but they are crushed with injuries and their remaining schedule is tough.
Even as it stands, Philly has to be favored. Washington may find a way, at best, to go 3-1 vs Dallas, New York, Cinci, and Detroit (2-2 is more likely, imo) but then they're going to get annihilated by Pittsburgh, San Francisco, and Seattle. So let's optimistically say they go 3-4 in the stretch, they're now at 5-9. They finish with Carolina and Philly which could go either way, though I doubt they'll be favored in either matchup. Carolina is playing well under Rhule and Philly is a good football team when healthy. 5-11 seems the most likely outcome to me. Philly is 2-4-1 and they still get Dallas x2, the Giants, and Washington. Even if they lose every other game but win those four they are 6-9-1.
Had Washington beat the Giants I could see the division coming down to the last game of the season if everything broke right for them but I don't think it's going to happen.
Welp, even by your calculations on results (which are fair to generous), that last game would have Wash at 5-10 and Philly at 5-9-1. Ergo it would be for the division title
I haven’t listened to this, and I probably won’t, but a new name possible by mid 2021. So right before next season.
The decision to really gun for the division title should be based on how they look against the Giants after the bye. If they look like the WFT in the 2nd half of the last Giants game where they dominated them and continuing the trend of play since then, by all means. 7-9 or 8-8 might seem possible.
Just wish we'd hear this about Haskins. All we hear is about his brand or mistakes he made. Why can't he be a good kid like Chase.
Scott Turner says Hi also.
Those are absolute best case calculations where Washington wins the games they should and probably one they shouldn't, and where the Eagles lose every remaining game outside of the NFCE. More realistically, Washington loses a game or two more than outlined and Philly wins a game or two more.
In fairness to Turner this is his first year as an NFL OC. He has a ways to go to reach the Mike Nolan level of worthless.
