John Riggins prediction for the '07 season
 
I heard through the grapevine that Riggo predicted the Skins will be one of the top 5 teams in the NFL this year. Did anyone else hear this? I'm interested in hearing more about what he said and his rationale behind his thoughts.

I listen to his radio show just about every day, and I've never heard him say that he thinks the Redskins will be that good. I've heard him say that the Redskins are in a better position to win the division than any other team in the NFC East. I've also heard him say that he thinks Gibbs will find some way to work Brunell into the lineup...

Maybe he said top 5 offense or defense? Can anyone clarify what he said exactly regarding that?

Well.........whatever is determined to be "what he said", he does not cut the Skins, Gibbs or anyone else any slack. If he said it, he believes without any homerism involved

He said the same think last year, just after he got done talking about man turds. I love the guy but he is a little off his rocker!

I'm gonna let you guys in on a little secret, John Riggins doesn't know anything about football. Ya ya i know he's in the hall of fame, but that was a result of personnel talent, not football knowledge. He radio show is the worst I have ever heard, he doesn't know anything about any of the teams in the nfl and frankly he doesn't know much about the skins either. Top five team in the nfl, so were up there with New england, san Diego, colts, ravens, saints?????

Thank you I agree. I just didn't want to be that harsh since a lot of people here love him to death!

He sure knows Gibbs! LOL!

I just thought it was interesting since he's usually pretty negative about the team. I'm fully aware that he's a bit of a nut, but that's also what makes him Riggo.

Absolutly!

Thats why some guys have a prob with him, I have heard enough from Riggo to say he is pretty knowledgable when it comes to player personel. Just because he's not predicting success for us every year doesn't mean he doesn't know what he's talking about, it's proven that he does.

I don't listen to him but I thought last year he wasn't very high on the team headed into the season?

I really love Riggo and everything he did for our club, but I can't take him seriously when it comes to his prognostications and opinions about the league.
