Don't you always go 11-5 though? I need to take a look at the 2011 and 2010 prediction threads... ;)

I understand that wins and losses are all some care about - the reality is, this franchise is now heading in a good direction - we will be a contender for the NFC East again no matter how many games we win

Bruce and Mike (and many others here) have done an incredible job in a few years

I doubt we win every game but I'm expecting to see a team that could win every game

12-4

Rookies Chris Thompson & Jordan Reed prove to be X factors.

Orakpo has 15+ sack season

Amerson starts on the Outside by end of year

Rambo is a DROY candidate

10 - 6 or 11 - 5...depending on the breaks...both breaks in the game and injuries.

Robert Griffin does much less running; continues to be a great passer; OL improves; defense improves. Defense backs will determine a lot.

Adding rgiii passing for over 3k makes your list sound spot on!

I stand by my 19-0 prediction I make every year....

I feel like we are an 11-5 team (barring injury), but the schedule is difficult:
- We have tough @ games against GB, ATL, and DEN. I think we lose these.
- I see us beating CHI, SD, DET, and KC. Vs. SF will be a VERY tough game to win. KC could very well be one of those teams that pre-season is circled as an "easy win" but very well could end up being a tough W.
- @ MINN should be a win, but it is away.
- The 12/29 game @ NYG may very well be to determine the NFC East.

My honest assessment is 10-6, but this is dependent on RGIII making a full recovery and showing last year's form.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.

We'll win games we shouldn't, and lose at least 1 or 2 we should win.

We were 10-6 last year & I expect us to continue to improve. I'm sticking with 12-4.

I like 12-4. I also really need them to win that game in ATL. It will be my daughter's first Redskins game, would like a win to go with the memory. My first game was the '91 home opener against the Lions (45-0 win @RFK) and I'll never forget it.

13-3, the defense isn't spectacular but it's better than last year, the O-line continues solid improvement, Morris is Morris and a rookie steps up to give him some breaks and RG3 is the difference staying healthy and spreading his throws across the field.

I'm really thinking that 11-5 is a legit number, and perhaps 12-4 if key folks stay healthy. I'd love to see 13-3, but that's a real tough number to make, and particularly with the schedule we're facing.

11-5 wins the division, and that I think is a very achievable target. It's going to be an exciting season ... I'm really anxious to see how the rooks in the secondary develop. I just have a feeling that Rambo is going to take that free safety spot, and he's going to give us a real boost there .. which was our single greatest weakness last year. With Rak back ... some young talent in the backfield, and a healthy Garcon and Davis adding to an already prolific offense ... I see some big things happening, and I do not think this team will dig itself into a hole like they did last year. I see a pretty steady 6-2 start, and a 5-3 (or 6-2 if a couple of bounces go our way) finish.

11-5, maybe 12-4.
