What if Washington marches into Dallas today in the Cowboys vs Indians, Thanksgiving showdown and pulls out a win? Dallas is 2-2 at home this season getting blown out by a better Bears team and losing to the Gmen in a shoot out. And they barely beat the Browns in overtime last week. A game the Browns gifted them letting the Cowboys drive down the field in under 1:07 to tie the game with a 32 yard FG. So in my opinion Dallas isn't playing particularly well at home this year. On the other hand Washington isn't playing very well away this year either. But what if the Skins pull off the win and the Pack beat the Giants? The Eagles would be a win away from being two games back from the division leading Giants. Could Reid save his fat arse by winning the division?
Lets take a look at the remaining schedules for the division.
|Carolina (2-8)||Dallas (5-5)||Washington (4-6)||Green Bay (7-3)|
|Dallas (5-5)||NYG (6-4)||Philadelphia (3-7)||Washington (4-6)|
|Tampa Bay (6-4)||Baltimore (7-3)||Cincinnati (5-5)||New Orleans (5-5)|
|Cincinnati (5-5)||Cleveland (2-8)||Pittsburg (6-4)||Atlanta (9-1)|
|Washington (4-6)||Philly (4-6)||New Orleans (5-5)||Baltimore (8-2)|
|NYG (6-4)||Dallas (5-5)||Washington (4-6)||Philadelphia (3-7)|
The Giants have the toughest schedule going forward. Their secondary is their biggest weakness and they play: Rogers, RGIII, Brees, Ryan and Flacco. Redskins have the next hardest schedule facing Dallas' very stingy pass defense twice, NYG and Baltimore. Dallas and the Eagles have about the same toughness of schedule with Dallas being the better team. But if somehow the Dallas losses games they should win the Eagles may find themselves in position to make the playoffs and save Andy's job once again.
What happens if the Eagles win on Monday and are only two games back? I know Joe D no matter what wants Andy gone. Evil Banner has a secret crush on Andy and probably wants him stay but will tell you he wants him to go (still in denial). It's ok to come out of the closet EB! David_K wants the Eagles to win at all cost. Even if they miss the PO's and earn a less desired draft pick. KByers will make fun of you no matter what you think. So....who's rooting for the Skins today? Who's rooting for the Eagles and Andy to save Andy's job?
