I highly doubt that a Shanahan-coached team will ever be too far above (or below) .500. If he ever has an 11-5 or better season in DC, it will be in 3-4 years. To make matters worse for 2010, we've got one of the toughest schedules in the league (atleast based on our opponents 2009 rankings).

Anythings possible - look at what the Jets did last year (albeit with a ridiculously easy schedule). Every year one or two teams catch the league off guard. I'm expecting a 7-9 season and hoping for 9-7: anything better than that is simply unrealistic.
Shanahan was also trying to wear too many hats in Denver, and had basically burnt out. I think he comes back and these first few years has several reasons to "prove" something. I think our low end has to be 8-8, splitting the division, winning games we should win ie Rams, Lions, Jags, Bucs and pulling an "upset" or two, ie Minnesota. That doesn't include beating teams like Chicago, Tennessee, or Houston where they may be very good or flops.

Since we have the benefit this year of a last place schedule I would not be surprised to see us be that team that bounces way high this year, then next year settles back even though we may be more talented next year than this.

Re: Our Schedule...Did you know?

I think we could win anywhere from 6-11 games. I do think even if we win 6 games we'll win the 6 games we're supposed to win. No more up and down. We'll be a solid team this year and if we can stay healthy I see no reason we can't win our division. We're not out of line talent-wise from the rest of the division.

Re: Our Schedule...Did you know?

Hate to agree with irish and spill the Kool-Aid, but our schedule based on last years records is the 8th hardest. The silver lining is that Dall-ass is 3rd, the Giants are 7th and the Iggles 9th.

2010 NFL Strength Of Schedule - (SOS), nfl schedules, fantasy football

It's real early, but here's what I see:

Cowboys - W
Texans - W
@ Rams - W
@ Eagles - L
Packers - L
Colts - L
@ Bears - W
@ Lions - W
Eagles - W
@ Titans - L
Vikings - L
@ Giants - L
Buccaneers - W
@ Cowboys - L
@ Jaguars - W
Giants - W

True. Boswell's argument was interesting in that I think it could be turned on its head just the same. Over the past 5-6 years or so each year at least 1 team makes a drastic worst-first turnaround. Of course most of the bad teams don't because they are that bad to begin with. But there is always a team or two poised to make a big leap in wins.

Coaching or a key personel move are often at the core of those turnarounds. I'm not sold that this team is ready for that big a year, so I'll agree that 9-7 is optimistic. I would be really shocked if this team can't win 6 games. Sadly even that is an improvement.

If we go 5-1 in division, I think 11-5 would almost be a disappointment. Our non-division opponents include: Detroit, St. Louis, Tampa, Houston w/o Cushing, and Chicago. If we went 3-2 against that group, it would be a major disappointment.

We have a very hard schedule, but it's almost entirely due to the NFC East being so strong this year. They are the teams that know our strengths and weaknesses the best, and I don't think it's a coincidence that we went winless against them this past year. I think even a 3-3 record (which we had accomplished in both 2007 and 2008) should be good enough to make some noise this year. 5-1 should win us the division, and comfortably.

Re: Our Schedule...Did you know?

If we beat Dallas in Week 1 though, I feel very good about the chances of 3+ division wins. (Being 1/3 of the way there doesn't hurt).

Like last year's 4th place schedule, all we need to do is break even with everyone else in the division, and we're leavin'. A lot of my prediction for 11 wins in 2009 was based off an assumption that we were good enough to win 3 or 4 NFC East games. You all saw how that turned out.

If we can go 5-1 in the Division GT..then my 14-2 prediction won't be too far off.

Kinda funny,but in my 14-2 prediction? Our 2 losses are the Bears and Titans on the road...(Both winnable games)

The question imo is...simply?
Can we beat the Vikings,Packers and Colts in our house?
Most will say...we just ain't good enough. (and they could be right)
Having a franchise QB can literally change a franchise though.(let alone a HOF type coach)

If we can win even 2 of those 3...This team can beat anybody imo...

If we can,this team can beat anybody and win the SB.
It's that simple imo...

Re: Our Schedule...Did you know?

I'd be happy with 5-13. maybe one day we'll go 10-8 but for now we have to pace ourselves.

You mean x_phackter?

I predict 10 and the playoffs... injuries or not. We are the most optimistic fan base in the world...

Thanks, I was scared that one was going to go unnoticed. Kind of like Marko Mitchell's amazing ability.

You could be right...

I guess I'm probably one of the few Redskin fans that thinks this team "COULD" be great in such a short transition in 1 year.

I'll know by game 1...
I have us dropping 40 pt's on the cowboys in a win...shhhhh (you didn't hear that) lol
