Hail to the Redskins!!!!
Wow, great odds...you're giving us less than a 1 in 32 chance to win it in a league of 32 teams lol

I'm not interested in making an accurate prediction on Wins and Losses, because the reality is there is a very fine line between winning and losing in the NFL. That's why every year you see teams go from 5-11 or 6-10 to 10-6 or 11-5 and into the playoffs. Just a few changes here and there, a few breaks go your way, a healthy player here or there where there was an injury the year before... that's all it takes to have a somewhat successful season.

I can say I'm pretty confident we're not among the elite in the NFL yet. I can say pretty confidently that we're not horrible like we were under Vinny & Zorn. From there, it's anybody's guess on which side of mediocre we finish. Instead of trying to predict, just enjoy the uncertainty that is the NFL.

Agree, no way will this team only win 4 games. I look for 7 to 9 wins.

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
Yeah teams go worst to first every year it seems, and there's always a bunch of new playoff teams. Clearly with the moves we've made Shanahan plans on turning things around quickly.

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

watching sportscenter this morning, they had drew brees on. did he get his birthmark on the side of his face removed or was that just makeup for tv concealing it some? i always liked that while he surely has enough money for cosmetic surgery, he didnt bother with superficial things like a birthmark.

Drew Brees Book Excerpt: 'Coming Back Stronger' - ABC News

As a kid, I got teased a lot because of a distinguishing birthmark on my right cheek. My mom and dad used to tell me that was where an angel had kissed me, but the kids at school didn't quite see it that way. They used to tease me and take jabs at me in the classroom and on the playground, saying things like "What happened to your face?" or "Wipe that stuff off your face." I couldn't help but get in a few scraps over it.

When I was little, the pediatrician gave my parents the option of having it removed because there was a chance it could become cancerous, but in spite of all the harassment I took at school, I decided to keep it. Instead of seeing it as a bad thing, I chose to see it as something that made me unique and special. It set me apart from everyone else. In a way, it became my trademark.

Looking back, I guess it might have been smarter to remove it, because why take a chance on it becoming cancerous? I even had it biopsied a few years ago, and I still see the dermatologist every once in a while to make sure it's okay, but now it's just a part of who I am. I wouldn't consider cutting off my arm. Neither would I cut off my birthmark. If I had ever been forced to remove it, I would have been devastated. My good friends who have known me a long time say they don't even see it anymore. If I had it removed, they would notice, but now they don't see it at all. They just see me.

(All that said though, I thought he did have it removed and now there was a scar there. Not sure)

Money, and talent aside. That's the kind of guy you want your daughters to marry.

First-stringer on the All-class team...couldn't have picked someone better to win his first Super Bowl.

Perhaps that was just the wit and wisdom of Saden.

I imagine if we make it to the playoffs, Saden will up our chances to about 8.3%

Re: Down time things to talk/think about.

Hot damn! Every now and then something happens here that pleasantly reminds me of some of the unique perks of my job...I'm walking to the cafeteria to grab some lunch...see some dudes playing catch with a football...walk over to see what's going...next thing I know I'm tossing the football around as well...with freakin' Drew Brees! What do me and Marques Colston have in common? We've both caught passes from Drew Brees. Damn, that was awesome.

Not a bad use of a Thursday morning.

I hate you now more than ever.

j/k. I do, however, envy you down to the pit of my being right now.
