The Road To New Orleans

When I say the road to New Orleans I’m not talking about the 1st game of the year…I’m talking about the last one! I’m always way too excited and have way too much wishful thinking the first time I see a schedule. By the end of the week I’ll have the Redskins going 6-10 or 7-9, but for now I’m calling out 11-5 and NFC East champs! My game predictions:

@NO - The Saints are 36-16 at home w/ Drew Brees and 5-1 in home openers the last 6 seasons. The Saints are in turmoil but will be fired up for this game. The Skins will fall in RGIII’s debut. Saints 23 Redskins 17

@STL - The Rams will get a first hand look at why they should have scrapped the Sam Bradford experiment in favor of RGIII. RGIII will account for 300+ yards of total offense along w/ 3TD’s. Redskins 24 Rams 10

CIN - The Bengals were a playoff team last year but that doesn’t matter. The Redskins win their home opener behind a solid mix of run & pass. Roy Helu amasses 150+ yards receiving and rushing. Redskins 27 Bengals 16

@TAM The defense will come up big against Raheem Morris’ former team. The Skins will intercept Josh Freeman multiple times including a DeAngelo Hall TD. Redskins 31 Bucs 10

ATL - The Falcons had a down year last season when the were the “sexy” pick to go to the Super Bowl. I expect the Falcons to rebound this season and will beat the Redskins at home. London Fletcher has 15 tackles. Falcons 24 Redskins 17

MIN - Another big game for RGIII as he sets a career high with 3 TD passes including 2 to Chris Cooley. Redskins 28 Vikings 14

@NYG - The Redskins have had the Giants number lately but will fall just short in this one. The game ends on a Graham Gano missed field that would’ve put the game in OT. Giants 23 Skins 20

@PIT - The Steelers have jumped the shark and their window has closed. Lorenzo Alexander causes a special teams turnover and Leonard Hankerson has his biggest game as a pro. Redskins 24 Steelers 13

CAR - In this match up of the last 2 Heisman winners it’s a draw. Both RGIII and Cam Newton play well and put up big #’s but it’s Pierre Garcon and his 160 yards receiving who is the star. The Redskins come from behind to win. Redskins 31 Panthers 28

PHI - Michael Vick isn’t a factor in this one as he’s already out for the year with an injury. Kyle & Mike Shanahan bring a solid offensive game plan to the table and the Skins cruise to a NFC East victory. Redskins 26 Eagles 9

@DAL - Tony Romo + primetime + Redskins = Happy Thanksgiving. Redskins 21 Cowboys 17

NYG - The Redskins win their 5th game in a row behind 2 rushing TD’s by RGIII. Eli Manning looks dazed and confused after a big sack by Brian Orakpo…wait, Eli looks dazed & confused all the time. Redskins 17 Giants 16

BAL - The battle of the beltway goes to Joe Flacco and his yellow teeth and big eyebrows. No one can accuse Flacco of being a metro sexual. Ravens 20 Skins 13

CLE - It’s the F’ing Browns people, of course the Skins win. Mike Holmgren has an aneurysm in his suite watching RGIII play. Redskins 30 Browns 12

@PHI - Very disappointing loss to the Eagles who were playing without Vick. Compounding matters is RGII comes away from the game with a hamstring injury, Ryan Kerrigan has a banged up shoulder and Mike Shanahan has tanning booth burns. We’re dealing with major shit here folks. Eagles 19 Redskins 14

DAL - It’s simple, the Redskins win and they are NFC East champs…if they lose they’re in a 3 way tie with the Giants and Cowboys for 1st and one team goes home depending upon a bunch of math. My blog is simple, the Redskins win. The Cowboys fire Jason Garrett a few days later and look to draft a QB in the 1st round of the 2013 draft. Redskins 27 Cowboys 17

11-5 NFC East Champions…I may be a little drunk right now.

Cheers and Hail
