2016 Schedule and Predictions 

Post#1 » by LyricalRico » Fri Apr 15, 2016 5:12 pm

Regular season schedule have been announced. Here's the schedule for your Washington Redskins:

Sep 12 7:10PM Steelers (ESPN MNF)
Sep 18 1:00PM Cowboys
Sep 25 1:00PM @ Giants
Oct 2 1:00PM Browns (CBS)
Oct 9 1:00PM @ Ravens
Oct 16 1:00PM Eagles
Oct 23 1:00PME @ Lions
Oct 30 09:30AM @ Bengals (London)

Week 9 BYE WEEK

Nov 13 1:00PM Vikings
Nov 20 8:30PM Packers (NBC SNF)
Nov 24 4:30PM @ Cowboys
Dec 4 4:25PM @ Cardinals
Dec 11 1:00PM @ Eagles
Dec 19 8:30PM Panthers (ESPN MNF)
Dec 24 1:00PM @ Bears
Jan 1 1:00PM Giants


A few first-glance takeaways:
- Three national TV games, all at home.
- Bye week exactly in the middle of the season.
- Division games evenly spaced.
- I'm going to the London game! :D

Honestly, every year it seems like they have a tough stretch of games that will determine the season. Some pundits think it's that Packers-Cowboys-Cardinals but overall the schedule is balanced.

Pre-draft: I could see wins vs. Dallas, Giants, Browns, Ravens, and Lions.

I think we could beat the Eagles, and Steelers/Bengals game are toss ups. Best case: 6-2, worse case: 4-4.

Chris Cooley with an early, very bullish prediction:

“The redskins are winning 11 games next year,” Chris Cooley said on ESPN 980 Thursday morning. “The Redskins are a building team that when you look around at the eyes of the people in the building, you’re told we’re damn good. We’re really good. The Redskins are winning 11 games next year. …

“The team is so the Seattle Seahawks of 2012, with a little bit more experience at quarterback and maybe a little less talent on defense,” Cooley later said. “They’re winning 11 games, I’ll tell you that, and I’ll give you this as a bold prediction: 12 won’t surprise me. I’m going to say it right now, June 30, before anyone else gets into this, before anyone else jumps on this bandwagon: they’re winning 11 games. They’re winning the division.”

The second coming of the 2012 Seahawks? I'll take it! :clap: (Although we actually should have beaten the 2012 Seahawks, but better late than never I guess.)

I love Cooley but "maybe a little less talent on defense" than the 2012 Seahawks is beyond a stretch.

Schedule looks less difficult now with all the injuries.
