Nice to see that the Washington Redskins didn't back into the playoffs. They did what they had to do, won out, and are going into the playoffs because they did what they were suppose to as opposed to say the Minnesota Vikings or New Orleans Saints who seemed to not want to take care of business enough to keep themselves in.
I know that the fans of the team that wears that irritating star are going to be dredging up excuses about how their team didn't need the win, they just wanted to rest up and not get their players hurt, and all of that malarkey, but the Dallas Cowboys better hope that the Redskins don't slip through the first round of the playoffs as they will face each other if that is the case. At that point Dallas could be shown as the pretenders that they really are, and the Redskins could (if they are lucky) go on to play for the NFC Championship.
I hope to see this all come to pass. Not that I'm looking past the Redskins first opponent, but Joe Gibbs and his staff seem to finally have awaken, just in time for the playoffs, and they typically do a pretty good job once they get there. Mike Holmgren and company, out in Seattle, are in for a tough fight. It should be a game for the ages. I'm looking forward to it.
