I've been focused on the preseason and Haskins vs Keenum to start and I clicked on the schedule to remind myself who the Skins play the Thursday (Atlanta) and made the mistake of looking again at the regular-season schedule and it gave me a start, it might start 0-5 ugly. Reassure me, tell me where I am wrong, please I mean it but I think the Skins might be dogs in the first 5:
9/6 @ Philly - Philly looks like the best in the division to me and it's in Philly.
9/15 Dallas - This might be our best shot at a W in the first 5 games but I expect Dallas to be favored and I don't know why we should expect to win.
9/23 Chicago- I saw the Bears last year and they looked really good, they are one of the preseason Super Bowl contenders. This looks like the least favorable match-up on the list.
9/29 NY Giants - This is probably the second-best chance for a W in the list
10/6 New England - I suppose New England could decide to take the week off but I think they win as big as they want.
Hopefully, I'm the only guy who can envision an 0-5 start. Please tell me I'm all wrong.
One final thought, if the Skins go 0-5 and fire Jay I would like to see Bruce Allen named interim coach for the rest of the season. Bruce has done so much winning off the field for the Skins he deserves a chance to be the hero and win on the field before fading into the sunset at year-end!
