Oct 13, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys defensive end Kyle Wilber (51) and defensive end George Selvie (99) sack Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (10) in the fourth quarter at AT

STANDING: Tied for last
ODDS TO WIN DIVISION: +800 ($100 bet would win you $800)

HOW THEY COULD WIN THE DIVISION:  The Redskins get to 8-8 by winning this week, only losing their home games to San Francisco and Kansas City, sweeping the Giants and beating Dallas and Philadelphia getting their divisional record to 4-2.  Dallas either finishes 7-9 or loses their three remaining divisional games and Philadelphia also manages only two more wins.

WHY THEY WON’T WIN THE DIVISION:  Besides that being a lot to accomplish, Washington has not won back-to-back games all year.  The Redskins also face the second hardest schedule of any other team in the division.  The only reason they made it last year was that they won their final seven games.  In that streak, only one win came against a playoff team and that was with a much more healthy Robert Griffin, III.  Another seven game winning streak is not happening.

PREDICTION: 6-10, last in the NFC East

    If finishing whatever & making playoffs means Garrett keeps his job, or worse, Callahan and Kiffin survive, sorry, no way. This team needs new leaders. And with omitting the obvious one, Jerry, all three have to go. I understand that Kiffin could get a pass because of the amount of injuries we have had, but there is no excuse for Garrett and Callahan. This will probably be the 3rd straight 8-8 season under Garrett, which obviously shows no sign of improvement. And with Callahan, he’s just an awful play caller. And something that just bothers me even more… We just finished playing our 10th game of the season. And every week, especially since the Denver game, our offense has been absolutely abysmal. And I can’t understand why our HC, and if he did it’s even worse, hasn’t gone to Callahan and expressed his displeasure with our offense? We still have no balance between running the ball and passing. Throwing the football 51 times against Minnesota & only running it 9 times, and their run defense is horrible, is absolutely inexcusable. And Callahan still can’t find ways to get the ball to dez. Now some wanna say he should try harder and run better routs, really? The guys double and was even triple teamed against the Saints. And seriously, how about utilizing our backs in the passing game, maybe a screen? And we absolutely need to throw the ball to Beasley more, he’s always wide open. And it’s clear that Callahan doesn’t have faith in Romo. I can’t remember the last time Romo threw a DEEP ball. And honestly, that I probably can’t blame him for. Romo has definitely regressed this year, despite his numbers. He’s not as elusive, misses wide open receivers a lot, over throws guys who are completely open & just looks like a guy not wanting to make a mistake rather than someone who wants to make the play.
    My odds, Eagles win the division. They have the easiest schedule, imo. 8-8 will probably win this crappy division. And between Arizona, a sporadic Detroit team, Minnesota and Dallas, they’ll easily get 2, if not 3 wins. Washington is done, no need discussing them. The Giants, interesting for them. While they have won 4 straight, they’ve beaten 3 teams with 3rd string qb’s & 1 team with a guy who shouldn’t have played. But going forward, I think they’ll beat Dallas, split with Washington and beat San Diego. I just don’t see them beating Seattle & Detroit. Asffor Dallas, they’ll lose to the Giants, beat Oakland, lose to Greenbay and Chicago, beat the skins & lose to Philadelphia.
    This team doesn’t play well and win big games and the Giants game is a must win game. And Romo is due for one of his patented 3 or 4 pick games. And what better team to do it against, but the Giants.
    Now, if this team were healthier, I’d be saying something completely different. But missing Lee hurts, not knowing if Miles can stay healthy for a full game & be effective, not knowing if ware & Hatcher and Claiborne are completely healthy, and pretty much knowing Callahan will not have a balanced attack and try to get into a shootout, all leads to a loss.

    I believe the Cowboys odds must be better than a 3-3 down the stretch record to be safe.
