Re: Season Predictions - post them here

Shouldn't we have a bad-ass FB on the final roster now that we have AP?

If the D is top 10 I don’t see any way in hell we aren’t 11-5 or better.

We'll see. I'm extremely optimistic. I don't think he'll quite give us what Guice would have, but it will be pretty darn close.
Totally agree, this is what smoot was saying on the radio.

If Alex is looking at 8 man boxes all season the O will roll.

- On the second play, the Iso Lead, note fullback JP Holtz meets the LB in the hole between Roullier and Scherff. There's very little space in that hole, since Holtz was met at the point of attack. AP squirts through what looks like no hole. That's what NFL runners have to do, and it's what Perine and Kelley can't do. Perine especially was used to massive holes at Oklahoma. In the NFL you have to find space, and sometimes make some yourself. All Day finds a crack just wide enough to wiggle through.

- On the third play that was more Vernon's quality block on Chubb that sprung that play than anything Peterson did. But that's why he'll succeed as a Redskin - the blocking here is better than what he had his last two seasons in Minnesota and anything he had in Arizona.

All Day goes 4.3+ yards per carry and 1000+ yards on the season. Book it.

And don't call it Kool Aid unless you bring me some All 22, haters.
Good link, good post.

Sidenote: Baldinger is having a show called "GamePass Film Session" on the NFL Gamepass, not Cooley's Film Breakdown's quality, but still pretty interesting!

I do think Vernon has been blocking better this PS than he was the previous years, am I right?

Don't know if he checks the "bad-ass FB" box, but TE JP Holtz has been doing the job at FB, maybe he has earned a roster spot?

Re: Season Predictions - post them here

I'd like to see the Skins trade for OLB Shane Ray of the Broncos. Now that the Broncos have Bradley Chubb, Ray has slipped down the depth chart. Ray was hurt last season but he notched 8 sacks in 2017. He is very fast and he can get after the passer. Ye olde situational pass rusher.

My Kool-Aid drinking prediction: 11-5

I love Jay, he's far and away the best coach we've had since Gibbs 1.0, (well maybe 2.0, and Schottenheimer but well we'll see). He's not a perfect coach, the are things I've not agreed with, but to go 7-9 last year with all the injuries, a difficult schedule, and a QB that was not all in was very impressive IMO. It seemed throughout it was because the core team was willing to give it all, and based on what some players have said about KC departing, I don't think he was subversive by any means, but when your QB gives off vibes like he's got one foot of the door a team can fall apart quickly. I'm hopeful that this translates into more success this year with a healthier and more talented team overall.


My realistic prediction: 8-8

We got better in some areas, worse in others, and there's a lot if ? in between. It's a difficult schedule, AS well need time to gel with this team, and there's a lot of young unproven talent that will likely have some growing pains. They will be competitive as they have been, but it's a tough league.


My PTSD Redskins fan prediction: 6-10

AS is ok. AP will last a few games, then what? Doctson and Richardson have done nothing, Crowder was a flash in the pan, and Reed is, well, injured. Our oline depth is a work in progress or injury prone. D line looks like it could be nasty, but I'll believe it when I see it, LBs are solid but none can cover a TE to save their life. Our secondary is a bunch of pups and an injury or two away from scary, expect broken coverages.

Re: Season Predictions - post them here

I find it hard to find many wins at all after week 2... and honestly, can't see even 8 wins unless the 'Skins start 2-0.

This schedule is DAUNTING to put it lightly. After Week 2 it's...

Packers
Saints
Panthers
Cowboys
Giants
Falcons
Bucs
Texans
Cowboys
Eagles
Giants
Jaguars
Titans
Eagles

I mean, from that, best chances for wins are what,? Giants, Bucs, Titans, Cowboys? Sure, maybe we'll beat a Falcons or Panthers team... but I don't know if I'd say I'd put the odds in any of those other games at over 50% chance... especially after watching the preseason games. And yes, I know they were preseason games, but I didn't see some dominating D-Line (especially against the Broncos with everyone's starters in) that suddenly is going to shut down opponents' run games.

Also see Doctson as a MAJOR bust (great to be big, but a WR has to get SOME separation at some point) and accounting for the annual injuries and lack of depth on the O-Line... I mean, I hope it all clicks and I'd love to sip a little Kool-Aid... but...

This year will definitely be about being healthier, but even with health... this schedule of opponents is the biggest obstacle.

Picking apart the schedule right now is pointless

Agree. It's the NFL. Anybody can beat anybody on a given week.

The schedule changes weekly, teams have injuries, bad luck etc.

Re: Season Predictions - post them here

We don't play the Steelers or Patriots so I see 16 possible games on the schedule we can win. Actually winning them is another matter.

We think on the same wavelength. Age isn't just a number when it comes to running backs.

I wouldn't be surprised if he shows that old burst for about a month, and then it declines as the season goes on.

Really hoping he proves me wrong though. And I'm sure Gruden will take care of him on the practice field with some vet rest.

Yep. I think it will take some time to gel and with the turnover we've had I expect another slow start.
