Re: 2012 Redskins Schedule Released Today

I figure that the difference of this 2012 Redskins team will indeed be the play at quarterback. I don't expect RG3 to come in and light the NFL on fire, but then again he might just do that. I'm predicting that the Redskins will start off the season 6-2. Then they will be 5-3 or 4-4 through the second half of the season. That would leave them with a 11-5 or 10-6 record and a possible divisional title. The defense has the potential to play some good football as we saw from last season. And if the Redskins can utilize their weapons on offense, then there's no reason to think that this can't be truly a complete team. At first I predicted the Redskins would be 13-3. I'm going to give them room for error and predict an 11-5 or 10-6 2012 season.

I am not a veteran of both methods for Saints tix so my best answer is I don't know. I live in Saintsland so I know the scene but I only try to go to games when the Skins come to town. I went on the NFL ticket exchange last night and prices looked reasonable for the cheap seats and very high for good seats.

The Saints have been sold out since Brees/Payton came to town and it is tough to get Saints tix on the street. My perception is that Saints tickets are more rare on the street than Redskins tix.

I would disagree with that. I can't believe no one has mentioned this yet. Think about how jacked up the Saints fans are going to be week one with their HC and several key players most likely suspended for bountygate... The Dome is LOUD, and I guarantee you RGIII has never played in a place that loud before. Griffin probably won't be able to hear a thing. That's scary to me for a rookie QB's first game in the NFL.

I tend to agree with you. Plus, this is the one game that the interim coach really gets extra time to prepare for.
In the end it doesn't really matter. They're going to be at a big disadvantage and we just need to capitalize.

No, it's not about who we play.... although were supposed to play the same teams NFC South and AFC North, it's about the Giants getting their schedule first and being able to start planning prior to anyone else.

That essentially was my point. But... thanks for the reply.

Maybe a perk of being SB champ?

Re: 2012 Redskins Schedule Released Today

On a slight tangent.... Alex Trebek is a Redskins fan and he predicts the wins for 2012:

Alex Trebek on the Redskins, the Nats and Robert Griffin III - DC Sports Bog - The Washington Post

Quote:
When Alex Trebek told WJLA’s Alex Parker that he is a longtime Redskins fan who can’t quit the team, I initially thought he was pandering to the Washington audience.

But a few moments later, Parker asked Trebek to predict the Redskins’ 2012 win total, and the ‘Jeopardy’ host said 12, which is the same number of wins every Redskins fan predicts for the team every April.

So, yup. He’s a Redskins fan.

Trebek is in town to tape Jeopardy’s ‘Power Players Week’ at DAR Constitution Hall; Parker got him talking about sports loyalty.


“I’m not a fair-weather friend,” Trebek said. “If things turn bad, I am not going to abandon you. I am still a Washington Redskins fan, since the days of Sam Huff and Sonny Jurgensen, and I still cheer for them. And I’m curious as all get-out as to who they’re going to pick with their No. 2 selection in the draft.”

Parker said it would probably be Robert Griffin III.

“I would think Indy is going to go for Luck because he’s more in keeping with the offense they have had over the years with Peyton Manning, whereas Griffin is not,” Trebek agreed. “But Griffin is going to be something special. He IS something special, because he is multi-talented, multi-faceted. He can pass, he can run, he can do a lot of things, and I think Washington is going to be very happy if they get him.”
He's either a Nats fan also or just follows Baseball pretty good.

Quote:
“What is 2012?” he replied, in ‘Jeopardy’ fashion. “I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt . . . It’s like Jeopardy, it feeds on itself. Success brings more success. You feel confident. You’re no longer the doorstop of the league. You say ’Hey, we’re pretty good, we’re in first place....I think the Nationals will be over .500.”

Just like I heard the Patriots have the easiest schedule? If true how fair is that? weren't they just in the SB? I thought the SB teams usually got the harder schedules and the weakest teams get the easiest schedules?

It is based off an algorithm. Aside from the two variable games that change from year to year, you could probably discern who they will be playing for the next 10 years if you wanted to.

The opponents are determined for the next season at the conclusion of the regular season, there isn't any picking and choosing about who to play like in college football. Only the schedule order is determined by the NFL.

16 games total.
6 divisional games.
4 games against out of conference division (for us this would be the AFC North)
4 games against in conference division (this year NFC South)
2 games against 2 in conference teams determined by our order of finish last year (we finished 4th in division last year, so we play the 4th place teams from NFC North & NFC West aka Vikings and Rams)

Which means the total teams we play this year are Cowboys, Eagles, Giants twice, Ravens, Steelers, Bengals, Browns once, Panthers, Saints, Bucs, Falcons once, and Vikings and Rams once. This was determined at the conclusion of last regular season.
