Re: Early W/L offseason predictions (any team)...

I used to think Pennington was an average starting quarterback. I always knew he lacked the arm strength, but I thought he made up for it with good decision making, and precise throwing.
The things is Pennington does not have the skill sets to carry a team. He needs at least a couple of players around him that can get the job done. Surround Pennington w/ talent, and his mediocrity is not so much an issue. He just doesen't have the skills to build an offense around.

Stop being modest! I think 13 and 3! At liest I hope! lol ! In any case, it's going to be fun! Too much talent, regardless of age, to count out! The team is a whole, and will be a force to reckon with! Watch out nfc east!!!!!!!

Re: Early W/L offseason predictions (any team)...

There are four "wins" on the Redskins schedule and four "losses" on it**

**I define a 'win' and a 'loss' statistically. A game is considered a "win" if the Redskins season (by my projections) point differential is +35 at home, or if it is +65 on the road. Likewise, I consider a game a loss if the season projected point differential is -35 on the road, or -65 at home.

Of course, that doesn't mean the Redskins will win or lose any particular game, that's not the goal of my system. The only goal of my system is to look at every team over the course of the season, and see how many games they are totally overmatched/should dominate in. By simply doing this, I can put together a big picture idea of how each team will do, which is the goal. Just to get close.


The most likely outcome of this season is 8-8, but anywhere from 6-10 wins seems reasonable to say. I don't think 10 wins will take the NFC East, but it should be good enough for a wild card.

It's very early and I'm going to get blasted, but I predict a 7-9 season for the Redskins. The defense weakens to a middle-of-the-pack unit and JC doesn't really shine until week 8. On a bright note, Portis excels in the WCO.

I predict that the Giants will go 5-11 because of how much a leader Michael Strahan was for their team, and it depends on how Justin Tuck plays replacing him.

Re: Early W/L offseason predictions (any team)...

tuck and the nyg DL will be fine. they have MK if they want to shift him too.

i don't think strahan has that big an impact on their W/L record, but i don't think the gnants will be repeating either.

Care to take any action on that?

Think I agree with everything you said here, and I have a few thoughts to add to it.

The schedule is not as tough as it's been the last few years. Like SGG said, the talent on this team doesn't figure to return to the playoffs, and our toughest...like 4 toughest games are within the division.

With that said, the easiest way for this team to get back to the playoffs would be to excel within the NFC East. The Cowboys should be good for at least a split, hopefully two wins, but we are going to be hard pressed to pull a win against apparently superior Eagles and Giant squads (and the Cowboys seem superior also, just not quite as much).

This is the good news: all of our challenging non-divisional games will be played at home this year. So if this team does miss the playoffs, it's going to be because we were unable to defend our HFA, not because the schedulemakers threw us some bad breaks.

We, as fans, will have a tendency to underestimate the loss of our 2004 first rounder for the rest of his career and our 2005 first rounder for the first part of the season. For a team that didn't leave itself a lot of picks in that era, that's going to be downright crippling in the short term.

In the future, Jason Campbell will carry this team to where it wants to go. The team will draft intelligently and replace its vets with youth. But for this team, I'm just not very optimistic. We don't have the horses to run with the other teams in our division, and we can blame 100% of that on the football gods because with 16 games of Sean Taylor and Carlos Rogers in the secondary, we absolutely would be able to run with those guys. Instead, we have 16 games of Reed Doughty and Justin Tryon. It sucks, but that's what this team is.
