2009 NFL Predictions

Yeah its tough being a skins fan and seeing and hearing the same old same old every year. But I dont know.. something different is in the air this season. Maybe Im smoking something.  Its just that 5-11 seems a bit low

2009 NFL Predictions

bounds:  I just think the Redskins are an underachieving bunch.  I'd like to see them dominate the East again, but I just don't see them winning all of the games they are supposed to.  Hope I'm wrong.

Bob:  Good point about the Colts, but I think the AFC South can even be tougher with a slowly improving Texans team.

Again, I'm sure I'm wrong!

2009 NFL Predictions

I agree with most of your predictions, but I would put the Colts at 14-4, the seahawks at 9-7 and the Broncos in position to challenge for the division and I dont see Brady coming back with as good a run as he had in '07.Tongue out Foot in mouth

2009 NFL Predictions

Redskins 5-11??? No way. I really can't see them being worse then 4 and 3 after only the first 7 games. They were 8 and 8 with a sweep of the eagles last year. I really dont see them being worse this year with an easier schedule. Call me a homer but I see them at the very worst being 9 and 7. of course hoping for better
