Anything will be better than last year. Sure, we'll take our lumps this year... just not as many as last year.

4. New quarterback working with our receivers
5. Rookie LT
6. RT coming off an injury

Those are just the big things -- I know we have made some great moves and I am certainly a fan (check the avatar) but at this moment BEFORE THEY HAVE EVEN PUT ON PADS, personally, I would be very happy with an 8-8 finish. In fact, that would be pretty miraculous considering the factors, division etc.
More specifically, regarding the defense -- we had a real problem last year in the secondary with the double moves. If there's one area where I have concerns, it's the defensive backfield. Other than some departures, I haven't heard of many additions that make me feel any better.

Will Haslett alone be enough of a difference to turn this segment of the team around? I hope so.

So many players have to learn a new scheme, new teammates, everything. We're going to have a lot of mistakes. That said, we have our fair share of athleticism and leadership.

So to me we could be anywhere from 6-10 to 10-6, with small margins of victory/loss every time. I see hope for the playoffs, but I wouldn't consider it a failure if we miss.
Be careful WAY out there on that limb. So you're saying that we will play 16 games, win some, lose some, you'll be happy if we win most but not disappointed if we don't. Seems Zornishly medium!

Haha...ouch. Go easy on him...right now, there's predictions ranging from 5-11 to 10-6 on this team so we are at a point where the best prediction about this team is that they are difficult to predict.

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

Furthermore...can we add 'Zornishly' to the list of approved adjectives for this site?

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

Screw it, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say there's a good chance we're going to win the Super Bowl. Right now I'm thinking there 3% chance of us winning it all but I'll have a better idea once the playoffs start.

Hail to the Redskins!!!!

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

I am cautiously optimistic about this season. I think we will be 8-8 at best. I think we are headed in the right direction, but it is still going to take some time. I am very pleased with what Allen and Shanahan are doing right now. I even think Snyder may be growing up some too.

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

Even though i think we can be a 10-6 team, if we only win 3-4 games is it time to panic in dc??

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

I think something would have to go drastically wrong for this team to only win 4 games again.

Yes.. there's no excuse for that. We need to be within a game of .500

I don't know what some people are talking about with the 3-4 years from being a playoff contender.. teams have been turning it around far quicker than that.. not every team has sustained it though

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

Ok. I am coming strong here. I am going to go out on a limb here and predict. 7-9 to
13-3 winning the division, and fighting for homefield advantage all the way till the end of the regular season.

BTW I love that video. The start of training camp can not get here fast enough, and I always fell like a kid at Christmas when the PreSeason and Regular Season start. Some times I cannot sleep well with anticipation.
