Skins Wins - predictions go here

Matty if you can make this a poll I would appreciate it.

Buffalo Bob wanted the reasons for some people predicting playoffs so I figured I would give my game by game as well general thoughts in this thread.

First and foremost our Defense was dominant against the run early in the season, remember Ionnaidis picking Elliot up and dropping him like a fly? That was GREAT! But we also held Barkely to 38 yards rushing in our first meeting. And a couple other great RBs to. Then Dunbar got injured, and a few others and suddenly all the parts fell off on D, and our offense was down to MSanchez. yes MSanchez.

Second, we as Skins fans have had a great LT for 30+ years so we are very spoiled on that, BUT Case Keenum took the Vikings with a terrible OL to the NFC Championship. He made his living on off script plays. Yes he had terrific receiving weapons, no doubt, but we don't know what we've got. A couple guys look poised to step up, and if even one does become a weapon, then Keenum might find an outlet receiver he can lean on.

Third, our running game should be top 10 or even top 5 if preseason gives any hint (and yes I know preseason doesn't mean really anything). Guice and AP both look powerful with good vision, and good hands for catching out of the backfield.

With all that said and without further ado, I present MY 2019 W/L Predictions, send donations to Matty on my behalf.

Week 1 (Sept. 8): at Philadelphia Eagles, 1 p.m. ET (Fox)
W Case has a chip going back to Philadelphia and Gruden wins his second opening day in 2 years

W no Zeke means a feast for Allen/Ionnaidis/Payne

Week 4 (Sept. 29): at New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET (Fox)
L Eli has a great day -- For us, throws 3 picks then gets pulled and Daniel Jones does the Rookie thing - beat the Skins
Week 5 (Oct. 6): vs. New England Patriots, 1 p.m. ET (CBS)
L Gruden vs Bellichek, We ought to just forfeit right now.
Week 6 (Oct. 13): at Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. ET (Fox)
W Miami continues tanking
Week 7 (Oct. 20): vs. San Francisco 49ers, 1 p.m. ET (Fox)
W Tough but our D is rolling now.
Week 8 (Oct. 24): at Minnesota Vikings, 8:20 p.m. ET (Fox/NFLN/Amazon)

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

Anyone remember the Ace guy on here? He vehemently kept saying the Redskins would go 14-2, even after we had lost four games already that season. He was a character.

6-10, another losing season. Hip hip hooray! =(

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

I really don't see 10 losses. Even given that JGruden is our coach, he has shown he is typically an 8-8 coach, and the talent on defense alone ought to get us to his average 7, if schemed right and a little luck (now that Luck's gone we are due for some) we get to 9 or 10 wins.

Ace in the da house...poor guy. Usually after a skins loss he would do a thread explaining the losses other teams had to endure in order for us to make the playoffs.

Well said , nice write up . I will say , if our Defense plays as well as it has in some of the games that you mentioned for an entire season , we could win 10 games . The run game is a must IMO , then , maybe the QB play is good enough . just BEAT dallas , philly and the Gnats , badly !

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

9-7 max, offense is still shaky at best. Defense should win us some games

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

I have to ask, who thinks we are going to win 5 or less???? Gruden has shown he's a middle of the pack coach, and we have upper middle defensive talent. I can't imagine this team actually losing 11 or more games.

It's possible cause we are unstable at QB and o-line. Imagine when Penn goes down cause he ain't lasting 16 games. There is no margin for error on the o-line. One or two injuries and it can be catastrophic for an average offense and a below average Keenum.

I have to go with 6-10. I think the team will start slow and then steadily improve.

Penn is not a starting lineman on this team. He's depth.

With a season of injuries from hell last year, Gruden still pulled out 7 wins. Maybe it's possible we get 5 or less wins, but to predict that you basically have to believe that our defense is going to give up the ghost right away and that we will lose half our line in the first 8 games.

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

People keep talking about our running game. Yes, I love Guice and AP. But every team we play is going to stack 8 guys in the box until we prove two things:

1. Keemun can throw to our WR group who the NFL thinks is the worst in the league. Without a lot of INT

2. The OL can protect Case while he passes.

AP and Guice are going to run into a wall of players until Case opens it up.

7-9

Re: Skins Wins - predictions go here

I'm going 7-9 as well...while I think the defense will keep us in some games to win, I think there will be games where teams will jump out to a lead and the offense will struggle to score period, let alone come from behind. You cannot forget all those games last year when teams scored on the defense at will with their passing game. I desperately hope they prove me and a lot of us wrong! HTTR
