    0:26 LOLZ! Whoever thought at that time that a certain to-be-former Elvis-loving HC from Houston would end up taking that job…..

    Skins got really hot and won 5 straight to close out 89 at 10-6 but still not good enough for even a wildcard that year w the Rams & Eagles getting those spots at 11-5. Giants won the NFC East @ 12-4

    Still can't believe this team missed the playoffs. 10-6 with 3 WR's over 1,000 managed to lose, at home, to 1-15 Dallas and lose its first two games to open the season at home, vs. NYG and Philly. The Giants kicked an 80-yard game-winning FG, and Philly came back after being down 5,000 points. Just beat a horrible Dallas team at home and NY or Philly at home and you're 12-4 and in the playoffs.

    Tim Brando edited game intro (voiceover):

    “Redskin playoff hopes are still alive”

    Tim Brando, 30 seconds later, during live intro:

    “Redskins have virtually no chance of making the playoffs.”

    lol

    Fulton County Stadium looks like Washington RFK Stadium.

    More than likely, there are more Redskin fans than Falcon fans there, judging by the cheering. Falcons had some die-hard fans, but generally fans are apathetic when the team is bad. Only a little more than 5000 turned out to see the home finale against the Lions that year, and a year or two before that, little more than 3000 showed up to watch them beat the Eagles – also at the very end of the season.
    Last year for the Falcons in their classic red, striped helmets.

    When Darrell Green doesn't play, our 2ndary is suspect. His cover skill could take away one side of the field. Haynes was killing us.
