2 lapses separated our team from the #2 seed and a first round bye.

1.) Josh Morgan's penalty vs. the Rams. I have zero doubt we would've won that game if we didn't get that 15 yarder.

2.) The Madieu Williams' ole' defense of Victor Cruz in the first Giants game where all we had to do was play deep cover and let the Giants run down the clock.

No doubt in my mind that we could've won those games. Had we done so, our record would've been 12-4 (good enough for the #2 seed ****).

Which means RG3 would've had an extra week to heal. Would that have been enough time? Who knows?

Sadly this didn't turn out the way we expected.

But just weird to think about how two mental lapses can have a snowball effect later in the season.

**** or maybe, just maybe it means we lock up the division earlier than expected and could rest RG3 alot of the last two weeks of the season by playing Cousins?

I am sure a couple of mental lapses won us some games as well. It's just how football works.

I do consider the Josh Morgan one alot worse, can't have those penalties, the cruz defense was awful but at least it was a football play.

We simply cannot have penalties period. We are the most penalized team in the league or at least one of them. More discipline and focus is really the key.

Mad Williams was a major problem all year long. It's amazing we were able to finish the season on a seven-game winning streak considering his terrible coverage and poor ability in run-support. He could've had quite a few interceptions had he kept his head up instead of going for a big hit that he inevitably whiffed on. Upgrading the Free Safety position should be the major focus of the Redskins off-season.

We'll be back next year and stronger for the future with an even younger team with more motivated young players who will want to follow our great young leader RG3. The future is brighter that ever, don't look back, look forward to what we will be in the near future especially after our injured players from 2012 return, another good FA class and another good draft for 2013.

We will be a Super Bowl contending team really soon. Cool
