Maybe the Redskins should ask to be relocated to the NFC West. Even after another brutal, embarrassing lost, they'd still be in the playoff picture.
Oddly enough, I'm pretty calm right now. I am not raging against the machine, demanding everyone get fired (though I am sure just about everyone else will). I'm not even really upset.
I didn't think the Redskins would beat the Giants, and they didn't. I didn't think the Redskins would make the playoffs, and unless they hire Ezio from Assassin's Creed to take his Brotherhood out and take out the rest of the teams on the 'Skins schedule, they won't.
The same thing that could be said about the Redskins before can be said now—at the very least, they didn't give up and kept fighting. Even with the game lost, they didn't stop hustling, didn't stop playing and kept doing their best.
This team has a LONG way to go before it's a good football team. Over the next week, you will hear much from everyone about "What's wrong with the Redskins?" and they are probably due for another radio rant at this point.
But I am strangely zen and strangely calm about this whole thing. I don't know why. I should be furious. But I'm not. So perhaps that will better allow me to be objective as we take a look at what we learned in week 13.
