The Washington Redskins fell to 5-6 with their 17-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Barring a miracle run, they will be watching the playoffs on TV for the third year in a row, for the ninth time in the last 11 seasons and for the 15th time since Joe Gibbs’ first retirement following the 1992 season.

Or it can be a building year, with changes being made that will set the team up for success in seasons to come.
Which of those scenarios best describes the 2010 Redskins? We hash it out in this week’s edition of the wildly popular Point-Counterpoint.
