1999 Season- Washington Redskins ultimately win their playoff game against Tampa Bay to advance to the NFC Championship where they face the St. Louis Rams... The Rams win the Championship in a landslide, 35-0 and advance to the Superbowl but the Redskins look like a team that is on their way back heading into a new decade and century.



2000 Season- Instead of losing to Detroit, Arizona, Philadelphia and New York; the Redskins win these four games. They finish the season 12-4 qualifying for the playoffs for a second straight season and earn home-field advantage throughout the playoffs... In their Divisional Round matchup with the Giants, the Giants fall to Washington 28-6 and so Washington advances to their second straight NFC Championship where they face the mighty Minnesota Vikings... For a second straight season Washington fails to advance to the Superbowl losing a heartbreaker to Minnesota 23-26 in overtime! Minnesota loses to the Baltimore Ravens two weeks later 27-24!

Their wild-card opponent happens to be the Eagles and Washington pulls off the upset winning 20-16 and advancing to play the St. Louis Rams for a second time in three years in the playoffs... St. Louis again gives Washington a beating, this time 24-6...



2002 Season- The Redskins beat the NY Giants but nothing else changes here... They finish the season 8-8 missing the playoffs for the first time since the 1998 season.

The Pack loses to Philadelphia the next week and the rest is history...



2004 Season- Back with the Skins for a fourth season, Schottenheimer directs Washington to a 10-6 season beating Dallas twice and Cleveland and Philadelphia along the way... Washington gets into the playoffs as a wild-card team, the fifth seed again and this time they face the Seattle Seahawks... As was the case the season before, Washington comes up empty with a 14-19 loss to Seattle... Seattle loses the next week to Philadelphia and the rest is history...



2005 Season- With their second straight loss in the playoffs early, Schottenheimer and the Skins parted ways with quarterback Brad Johnson and brought in Mark Brunell to groom rookie quarterback, Kyle Orton who was the Redskins first pick in the draft that Spring. The Redskins were able to beat Denver and Tampa Bay to improve their record to 12-4, their best under Schottenheimer and big things are expected by the fans... As a number two seed, Washington gets a bye week and then in the divisional round they take on the Carolina Panthers where they topple the Panthers 20-7 to advance to the NFC Championship! Their opponent in the NFC Championship is the same team that put them out of the playoffs the previous season, the Seattle Seahawks! For the second straight season the Seahawks end the Skins season with a 34-24 loss... For Washington it's their third loss in the NFC Championship in seven years. Frustrated with the lack of a Superbowl appearance, opts not to renew Schottenheimers contract. Schottenheimers tenure in Washington ends with a record of 54-32 but 2-4 in the playoffs...
