NFC East race wide open between Redskins, Cowboys, Eagles, Giants - Ross Tucker - SI.com

Pretty interesting - in order:

Washington Redskins (10-6)
Dallas Cowboys (10-6)
New York Giants (9-7)
Philadelphia Eagles (9-7)

Whomever this guy is, I like the way he thinks.

I don't see the Eagles and Giants winning 9 games each though.

He was a journeyman OL player. He actually played for the Skins for a couple of seasons as a back-up during the Gibbs II era. Also played for Buffalo and the Patriots.

His writing is honest and direct, usually from the perspective of a former player. I don't know what his prognostication skills are, but he calls is like he sees it.

He was here in 2001-2002. Re-signed in 2007 but went on IR and then retired.

He has a point with Anthony Armstrong having to step up. He Can be a huge playmaker for us in the regular seasons to come.

Re: Ross Tucker picks Redskins to go 10-6

Ross Tucker is one of my favorite NFL commentators. He is knowledgeable, balanced, and clear.

However, all of that does not make him a soothsayer, but I hope he is correct.

Re: Ross Tucker picks Redskins to go 10-6

Eh. Jon Gruden thinks we'll win less than 8. Everyone's got a prediction. I think it's a stretch to go from 4-12 to 10-6. I don't think a lot of people realize how rare those kind of one season turnarounds are.

Great read from Thomas Boswell on just how rare those kind of big turnarounds are:

My issue with that is that not all 4-12 teams are the same. They can be just as good as a 2-14 team or a 6-10 team. Now if he wants to start breaking down strength of schedule in both years, strength of additions, etc then I'll start listening. Not saying that he won't end up being right, but to try to make a science out of it with just those two constants (coach change, 4-12 record) and a shitton of other variables is a bit irresponsible. Maybe not irresponsible, but it ignores a lot.

I hear you, but he's using such a large sample size with his comparisons, I think it probably averages out.

It could, wouldn't mind being the exception rather than the rule however.

I don't think the Eagles are 9-7 this year. Kolb has looked like GARBAGE.

Re: Ross Tucker picks Redskins to go 10-6

Haha, who cares how rare they are ... most if not all preseason predictions are usually off base. It was just nice to see something so gleamingly positive written about the Redskins by someone not on this board.
