Washington REDSKINS  @  Minnesota VIKINGS

Sunday, December 23, 2007 ~ 7:15 p.m.

Austin Avenue Grill & Sports Bar

Ok - - I'm going to attempt to assess the game like the Priddy's do – I will only fall way short!!!!!

Basically, it comes down to this ~ ~ we need to win out to get in, plain and simple.  We also need a ittle help.  If Philly or Chicago do not beat New Orleans, we are out regardless of what we do.   There is also, however, the realistic chance that the Giants will lose out, and if they do, then it will get really interesting!!!!!!!  This sounds a lot like 2005 ~ ~ you remember, when we won 5 in a row to get in?

With all of that said - - WE CAN DO THIS!  The most exciting part of the last two victories is that we played ALL 4 QUARTERS!!!!  If we would have finished games earlier in the year like we did these past two weeks, we would already have a playoff spot locked up.  Minnesota and Dallas are both beatable, and we are playing good enough to win both games.  The Defense is solid like always, our running game was great against the Giants (not so much the week before) but, again, the most inspiring thing is that we played the entire game and closed both out!

So, Santa, this is what I want for Christmas: 

~ To beat Minnesota on Sunday. 

~ To have Philly beat New Orleans on Sunday. 

~ To have Green Bay win out. 

~ To BEAT DALLAS ON THE 30th TO GET INTO THE PLAYOFFS AND KNOCK THEM OUT OF HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE!!!!!

That's my Christmas list!

Oh, and did I mention Chloe, Linda and I will be at the game on the 30th?

HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!
