Here’s my prediction for the Washington Redskins 2006 season: the ‘Skins finish the regular season 16-0, winning the NFC East along the way. They then march triumphantly through the playoffs to the Superbowl where they meet and defeat the Indianapolis Colts.
Don’t believe that will happen? Let me establish my bona fides. This is an excerpt from an e-mail I sent to a friend last season when the ‘Skins were 5-6.
Firstly, they’re playing another bad team next week, so there’s a guaranteed win. Then they have the cowboys who they beat in Dallas so they’ll definitely beat them at home. The Giants will have clinched the playoff spot by the time we play them and will probably rest Manning et al. And the Eagles have imploded. So I’d say 10-6 and the playoffs really is a lock! Superbowl Bound!!!!!
You know it.
You’ll note that I didn’t just predict their five straight run to the playoffs, I called it a “lock”. So trust me when I tell you that, in 2006, the Washington Redskins are Superbowl Bound!!!
