Although Only Seven Games Left, Redskins Season Still Far From Over


 

As a Redskins fan, the title of this article may or may not aggravate you. Sure, the Redskins are three games behind the division leading Giants, and the young team seems to be in no position to compete, but it is not as bad as you may think. If you look closely enough, rookie sensation Robert Griffin III is in prime position to take this team to the top of the division.

The Redskins will take on the Micheal Vick-less Eagles at home on Sunday, followed by a Thanksgiving date with Dallas in Jerry’s World. If we see a different Redskins team, like several players stated this past week, getting two straight wins is totally obtainable. With that, the Redskins would stand with a record of 5-6.

Meanwhile, the 6-4 Giants are off this week, a much needed bye after two straight embarrassing losses. Next week, however, they will take on reigning league MVP Aaron Rodgers and the hard-nosed Green Bay Packers. With a Giants loss, that would put them at 6-5 heading into Week 13.

Anybody else wondering who the Redskins will be facing off against in Week 13?

None other than the New York Giants, a Monday Night match-up in Landover, MD, with a share of the division lead on the line for Washington.

Even though is may seem the season is over, and a certain head coach is talking about evaluating players for next season, this Redskins team is no where near throwing in the towel for this young 2012 season.
