The Redskins loss just might haunt us..
Mon Dec 04, 2017 4:17 pm
  • We had no business losing to them. Play calling to execution to missed kicks, it was just an awful showing from a seasoned team at home.

    At the beginning of the year I started this thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=137449&p=2052748#p2052748

    It was titled "Which Should win no problem game will we lose?"

    There seems to be one every year and not many of us choose the Skins. I'm still optimistic as always, but that was a winnable game that could have put us in a completely different position playoff wise.

  • ... and we could've easily lost the Rams and Texans games.

    You win some, you lose some. Doesn't do much good looking back and regretting it.

    They control their own destiny at this point. Win the last four, everything else will fall into place

  • I don't think I can remember a season where I couldn't look back and say that about some game along the way.

    That's kind of how it works, every year, for almost every team.

    Sit back, smoke a fat one, listen to some Yanni. Relax and generate some acceptance.

    :beach:

    :pimp:

    'Round about Fri/Sat, start cooking up some excitement for the Jags game. It's what we fans do. :mrgreen:
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

    Great point. people tend to focus on the negative but you are exactly right. Kupp makes that catch, or RW doesn't pull the rabbit out of his hat vs hou and either of those could of went the other way.....

    But we could keep playing this game too though! thats the beauty of the NFL

    Naz Jones pick 6 doesn't get wiped away and Lane tossed on that garbagey garbage call we may have won in gb

    SF was an ugly fest, we very easily could of lost that game. Last minute td drive was needed

    Tennessee, they pulled away at the end, ummm maybe if this is played in temperatures 15 degrees cooler?

    Indy, we put it on them pretty good.

    Rams see above

    Giants who wasn't nervous as heck starting the second half?

    etc. etc. etc.

    Good teams find ways to win more then they lose because they've trained for it, because they have experience in it and they want it.... bad teams find ways to lose games

    But those were both 50/50 games.

    IMO there's a difference between losing a game against a good team, especially a road game like the Rams. That IS usually the difference between going to the playoffs and/or SB and not...........winning the games you're suppose to win, and then winning a couple games you're not suppose to win.

    The Skins game is a game we should have won, plain and simple. So yes, I agree with the OP, if we don't win the division, or miss the playoffs, it will be THE game we'll all point at as a big reason why.

  • Every season has these games. The ones most don't expect to win (Eagles) and the ones you never would think we would lose (Redskins).

    This season is no different than any other in that regard.

  • That Redskins game pissed me off more than any game in the Pete Carroll era (the Super Bowl loss was heartbreaking...this game just made me angry). It was just infuriating to watch the dumb mistakes, bad coaching, missed kicks, and blown opportunities.

  • For me it wasn't so much about anger as it was shock. Like, "Really? We just lost at home to THEM?"

    The Falcons are understandable. But THEM?

  • It's going to haunt us in more ways than one. The teams with which we'll be jockeying for playoff position - Minnesota and New Orleans - DID beat the Redskins. Meaning their conference and SOV tiebreakers are stronger than ours. Same with the Green Bay and Atlanta games. Brutal losses.

    I was going to post something along these lines. I was at the game and when Russ hit Dougy for the TD we we're going wild and had the taste of victory in our mouths. Then shit happened and it tasted so much worse in comparison. With the looking-back-what-if-missed-kicks, damn. And it was cold as hell. Not might, it haunts me now.

  • Yeah, we botched that game big time, but are the Redskins really as bad as we're making them out to be?

    They lost by a field goal to the Saints and by a TD to the Vikings in back to back weeks just a couple of weeks ago and they've beaten both us and the Rams this season.

    I mean, yeah, I definitely think we are the better team and should have won. I'm just saying I think the Redskins might be a bit better than some are giving them credit for.

  • The Skins at full strength is no easy task so at the beginning of the year I would not have put the Skins as a must win that we will lose. However the Titans game we should have won, I think that team is a farce.

    I'd switch these around.

    When we played the Titans they were at full strength at home with a healthy Mariotta.........and worse, something to prove against the bullies of the NFC coming into their house.

    On the other hand, the Skins came limping into the Clink with their entire offensive line gone and other key injuries on defense. NO REASON to lose that game, other than like 20 penalties and a bunch of missed FG's.

    Don't get me wrong, im saying at the beginning of the year I would not have put the Skins as a should win that we would lose because when the OP said that the Skins would have been at full strength.

  • The best team doesn't always win. In fact, upsets are actually fairly common in sports. To expect to win every game in which you think we are the better team and then get all bent out of shape when we don't is a little naive to say the least.

    And, y'know, having a highly underrated QB and the offensive line continuing to be the most overrated element of winning.

    I really hate this phrase. Guess what? Every single one of the 32 NFL teams controls its own destiny from day one of the start of the season. Win out and you've got HFA. People say "they control their own destiny" as if it IS destiny that they'll win out and everything will be cupcakes and unicorns.

    In any case...carry on.

  • By my estimation there have been 25 fairly large upsets this season so far. The Eagles-Redskins game is the 8th biggest and definitely a winnable game that got away from us. The Falcons (7-5) are the team that really has to be kicking themselves right now, as they have been on the wrong side of two of the top six, both at home in consecutive games (sandwiched around their bye) following a 3-0 start that had them in the top 3 of most power rankings.

    Top 10 upsets so far this season:
    #10. Week 4 Bears 23-17 OT over the Steelers (+7 pts)
    #9. Week 5 Jaguars 30-9 over the Steelers in Pittsburgh (+7.5 pts)
    #8. Week 9 Redskins 17-14 over the Seahawks in Centurylink (+8 pts)
    #7. Week 1 Chiefs 42-27 over the Patriots in Foxborough (+8 pts)
    #6. Week 4 Bills 23-17 over the Falcons in Atlanta (+8 pts)
    #5. Week 12 Bills 16-20 over the Chiefs in Arrowhead (+8.5 pts)
    #4. Week 4 Carolina 33-30 over the Patriots in Foxborough (+9 pts)
    #3. Week 11 Giants 12-9 OT over the Chiefs in NY (+10 pts)
    #2. Week 6 Giants 23-10 over the Broncos in Denver (+13.5 pts)
    #1. Week 6 Dolphins 20-17 over the Falcons in Atlanta (+14 pts)

    Week 14 features a lot of close games and so the only candidate to make the list this week is the Dolphins/Patriots game where the Patriots are favored by 11.

  • Wow. Thanks for the list Agent, it really puts into perspective some of the crazy games that have happened this season. As bad as it was for us to lose against the Redskins, at least they have a good QB. The Falcons lost to the freaking Dolphins with Jay Cutler. What's worse is that I think they had 17-0 lead at halftime or so. Pathetic. FTF

  • Every loss counts. It's been the same story every year. The Hawks have done better on the road this year so perhaps they can do better in the playoffs this season without HFA.
