Fatpickle’s Fearless Redskins Predictions

I am a very superstitious person…it goes back to my baseball and gambling days. One thing that I am very superstitious about is making predictions, and especially writing those predictions down into a blog post. Well…I’m fixin to break my own rules and give you my fearless predictions for the Redskins 2009 season. Some of these are a bit outlandish, but like I said…I’m a gambler.

1) The Redskins will go 10-6 and make the playoffs. This will require a NFC East road win and a west coast road win to do so.

2) Brian Orakpo will be the NFL Defensive ROY.

3) Andre Woodson will be released from the practice squad by the end of week 4.

4) Jeff Garcia will be signed to the active roster.

5) After a couple of big TD’s early in the season, Malcolm Kelly will get injured and miss the last 8-10 games.

6) Devin Thomas will have little impact in the passing game (maybe some on special teams.)

7) Marko Mitchell will catch 30+ balls.

London Fletcher will make his first Pro Bowl.

9) Carlos Rogers will match or exceed his career total of 5 INT’s this season. He will leave after the season via free agency.

10) Fred Davis will have 1 game this season where he goes off…he’ll then disappear and probably catch fewer passes than Yoder.

11) Marcus Mason will see more and more playing time as the year goes on… and he’ll finish with over 250 yards rushing.

12) Clinton Portis will rush for 1000-1200 yards in his last season for the Redskins.

13) Also the last season with the Redskins for Smoot, Wynn, Griffin, Collins, Betts, Albright, Thomas and Randle El.

14) Zorn will survive this season and be back for 2010.

15) I will drink many beers, jump up and down, yell and scream, throw things and possibly shed tears this season (happy ones.)

Cheers and Hail
