We Are All Dave McKenna III

On the third day of linking to Dave McKenna's brilliant "Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder" until Snyder's dumbass lawsuit gets thrown out of court, let's tally the team's playoff accomplishments since his reign of ownership commenced.

With just three seasons over .500 in a 86-106 run over 12 years, the Snyder Redskins are 2-3 in the playoffs. The wins came against Detroit (1999) and Tampa Bay (2005). One loss to Tampa and the other two to Seattle. Here's's take on the 2007 Wild Card Round loss:

It was over when ...
Marcus Trufant returned an interception 78 yards for a touchdown with 5:38 left in the fourth quarter to give the Seahawks a 14-point lead. Trufant's touchdown came moments after D.J. Hackett's 20-yard touchdown reception gave Seattle a 21-14 lead and nullified a Redskins comeback. Washington had trailed by 13 points early in the fourth quarter but rallied to take a 14-13 lead before the Seahawks' dramatics.
