Re: Prediction time! the Pre PreSeason Prediction thread

Here's how I see it:

WIN at Houston
WIN vs Jacksonville
LOSS at Philadelphia
WIN vs New York Giants
LOSS vs Seattle
LOSS at Arizona
WIN vs Tennessee
WIN at Dallas
WIN at Minnesota
WIN vs Tampa Bay
LOSS at San Francisco
LOSS at Indianopolis
WIN vs St. Louis
WIN at New York Giants
LOSS vs Philadelphia
WIN vs Dallas

So 10-6. Spilt with Philly and sweep Dallas (who I expect to be bad -- 5-11 bad) and the Giants (they will be 7-9 again).

Of course, I predicted 11-5 last year, so....

Re: Prediction time! the Pre PreSeason Prediction thread

I can hardly believe that people are trying to pick individual regular season games. If anyone could do that he'd be a millionaire from sports betting alone.

Well, anyhow, I said we'd make the playoffs because I can't stand to say we won't. I do think we'll be better but I have no idea how much better we'll be.

I look at it this way: If RGIII can stay healthy and improve his pocket passing, we'll be halfway to the playoffs because we have a lot of weapons on offense. I think we're going to score a lot of points and that will usually overcome the disadvantage of having an average defense.

Also, in my mind, there is no way we could possibly play worse on ST than we did last season. That should mean that we'll generally have improved field position this season which I think could be worth a win or two in close games.

It's just good ole internet fun. Maybe we should rate the excitement level of each game, for example the first Iggles game probably would be rated

,

the Titans game would be



and Jacksonville would be

W Week 1 Sun. Sep. 7 @ Houston Texans
W Week 2 Sun. Sep. 14 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
L Week 3 Sun. Sep. 21 @ Philadelphia Eagles
W Week 4 Thu. Sep. 25 vs. New York Giants 8:25 PM
W Week 5 Mon Oct. 6 vs. Seattle Seahawks 8:30 PM
L Week 6 Sun. Oct. 12 @ Arizona Cardinals
W Week 7 Sun. Oct. 19 vs. Tennessee Titans
L Week 8 Mon Oct. 27 @ Dallas Cowboys 8:30 PM
W Week 9 Sun. Nov. 2 @ Minnesota Vikings
Week 10Bye Week
W Week 11 Sun Nov. 16 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
L Week 12 Sun Nov. 23 @ San Francisco 49ers
W Week 13 Sun Nov. 30 @ Indianapolis Colts
L Week 14 Sun Dec. 7 vs. St. Louis Rams
L Week 15 Sun Dec. 14 @ New York Giants
W Week 16 Sat. Dec. 20 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
W Week 17 Sun. Dec. 28 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Put me on record at 10-6 and clinching the 3rd seed with a week 16 victory over the Iggles.
If RG3 takes off, special teams improves and the defense gets more sacks and turnovers, I see 10 wins. But being a realist, all three won't happen. I say 7-8 wins. Hopefully we can start fast, got to get those first two games. Who the hell is playing QB for the Texans anyway???

Re: Prediction time! the Pre PreSeason Prediction thread

I picked 5-8 wins.

I'm hoping to be wrong, but the question marks I have.....
1) Defense - secondary, LB, pass rush
2) RG3 - he's gotta be better than last year and the gimmicks from year 1 won't work any
more- hoping he progresses in reading defenses this year
3) 1st year as head coach in NFL -I expect some mishaps
(when to go for it on 4th down, when to challenge, etc.)
just because things look differently when every decision falls on you

I'm confident that ST will be much improved, but the bar wasn't set very high last year.
I also think this team will be stronger in the 4Q than in past years.

To go on record, I'll go with 8-8.

Hail!

7 - 9, hopefully good performance by the O, solid Specials, and we clearly set our fixes for the D (including DC) in the 2015 offseason.

I happen to agree with Sammy's predictions pretty much to a T. Well done good sir. I do think if things go extremely right though, it could turn out 9-7.

Re: Prediction time! the Pre PreSeason Prediction thread

If we lose to Houston in week one with Ryan Fitzpatrick I might just break something.

Re: Prediction time! the Pre PreSeason Prediction thread

Lol cant believe a true skins fan would "predict" a losing season for us. Its a better roster than the last time we were a 10 win team. And why we all think were positively going to lose to the eagles week 3 is absurd that team has some flaws imo.

O - should be better than D for sure but i think offense takes a big step back with the loss of the shannys. the run game isnt as explosive = receivers arent as open for RG3 which may compound RG3s below average reading of D, anticipation, moving safeties with his eyes/body etc ..



who knows, maybe RG3 lights it up, the O line plays better, AlfMo doesnt take a step back w the loss of the shanny running scheme, we dont suffer an injury to the paper thin secondary and the secondary plays above expected, the D line creates turnovers and rushes and the MLBs step up with their new responsibilities ...
Good post and IMO spot on especially with the O. RG plays better than last year but the magic of a couple of years ago doesnt return. I think they get 6 wins and finish last in the division.

Re: Prediction time! the Pre PreSeason Prediction thread

I wouldn't expect any major changes regarding the running game. Gruden has said they are leaving much of the zone schemes in place. That's why Foerster is still here.

Sheesh! I hardly know what to say to a fan who is so pessimistic before the season even starts.

I feel like you need counseling. Let me give it a try: You hate your mother. You hate your father. You hate the Redskins.

Now, sing two choruses of "Hail to the Redskins", pop a cold one, sit in a lounge chair on the veranda, and imagine how great it's going to be with a healthy RGIII making plays all over the field, Alfmo running wild, DeSean catching 70-yard bombs , nachos and beer at the stadium, the finest cheerleaders in the league, crying Cowboys fans. Life is good. Are you starting to feel better yet?

Re: Prediction time! the Pre PreSeason Prediction thread

We'll win the 3 days of scrimmages against the Pats next week

We'll sweep the 4 preseason games

We'll steamroll through the 16 game regular season

Breeze past our conference playoff opponents in 2 games

Shut out the 1 remaining team in our Super Bowl quest

We'll also be the 1 team to represent the entire NFC in the Pro Bowl

Pretty obvious that we're going 27-0
