I Smell Super Bowl

The NFL released the schedule for the upcoming 2009 season yesterday. For some reason, ESPN dedicated a 3 hour show to break this down. Now come on, Bristol, did we really need this? Talking about potentially big games in week 15 seems a bit much to me. But then again, I have yet to meet a football fan that wasn't interested in Trent Dilfer's opinions on the Monday Night Football schedule. So what do I know? At least Chris Berman wasn't on wearing his size 60 green jacket. YOUR Washington Redskins schedule for next year:

1 Sun, Sept. 13 at New York Giants FOX 4:15 p.m.
2 Sun, Sept. 20 vs. St. Louis Rams FOX 1 p.m.
3 Sun, Sept. 27 at Detroit Lions FOX 1 p.m.
4 Sun, Oct. 4 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers FOX 1 p.m.
5 Sun, Oct. 11 at Carolina Panthers FOX 1 p.m.
6 Sun, Oct. 18 vs. Kansas City Chiefs CBS 1 p.m.
7 Mon, Oct. 26 vs. Philadelphia Eagles ESPN 8:30 p.m.
8 Bye
9 Sun, Nov. 8 at Atlanta Falcons FOX 1 p.m.
10 Sun, Nov. 15 vs. Denver Broncos CBS 1 p.m.
11 Sun, Nov. 22 at Dallas Cowboys FOX 1 p.m.
12 Sun, Nov. 29 at Philadelphia Eagles FOX 1 p.m.
13 Sun, Dec. 6 vs. New Orleans Saints FOX 1 p.m.
14 Sun, Dec. 13 at Oakland Raiders FOX 4:05 p.m.
15 Mon, Dec. 21 vs. New York Giants ESPN 8:30 p.m.
16 Sun, Dec. 27 vs. Dallas Cowboys NBC 8:20 p.m.
17 Sun, Jan. 3 at San Diego Chargers FOX 4:15 p.m.

Monday nighters at home against the Eagles and Giants and a home Sunday night game against Dallas is pretty sweet. I'm even going to be bold enough to predict that all three of those spotlight games are won by the home team (that's the Skins, if you just nodded off to sleep). Without too much thought, I can see the Skins going 3-3 within the NFC East with losses at San Diego, Carolina, and possibly Atlanta. I'm thinking a solid 10-6 season. The AFC West is awful. The Bucs suck. They get New Orleans outside in December.

Obviously, all of you hate the Redskins a bit more than you should because of me alone, but even the biggest hater has to admit that this is a fairly soft schedule. I expect nothing less than the Super Bowl trophy in DC this season and for Albert Haynesworth to eat at least one opposing running back per month (he can start with Brandon Jacobs).

Either way, congratulations to your 2010 Super Bowl champions: The Washington Redskins!!!

How about the Browns with 2 primetime games? Can you say Super Bowl?

That's right, I am looking forward to watching Browns football. After this stellar baseball season, anything would be more fun to watch.

Redskins. Super Bowl? I love to start the day with a good laugh. Oh, you were serious? I'd like some of whatever you're smoking.

Damman- the browns are going to be worse than they were last year.

And how sweet is it that the Indians are the worst team in the AL?? After they get swept by the royals today they get to open new Yankee stadium with a 1-8 record!! I don't think I could have scripted a better start to the season.

D, be careful what you wish for. Once Braylon gets dumped to the Giants, not only will you have no one to root for, you will have no one left to root against either.

Seal, bring it!

Grump, let me have my fun. These are the only dreams that I have left that aren't wet.

I actually predicted the Skins to beat my Falcons this year. Not only do you have a bye week prior to our matchup - but the Falcons have a short week since we'll be returning from a Monday night game in New Orleans on Nov 2nd.

Then again, as long as DeAngelo Hall is in the game - we have the chance to score immediately.

Lucky you're missing the Bears this year- you wouldn't want the 'Skins getting carved up by Cutler.

GMoney said...

So this is what happens now, huh? Bears fans get to be obnoxious about their new QB with a 17-20 career record???

Tony B. said...

Nah, I blacked out after seeing midget-George from the Seinfeld porn and started typing crazy. Cutler's going to be good though, especially in the that division.

I see this as nothing more than you unconsciously already coming to terms with the failure that the Yankees season will be this year.
