Cheers to Z for predicting the Redskins would lose in excruciating fashion to Tampa Bay. Now he gets to guest post!

Here are our crackerjack staff’s scientific predictions for this week’s game. Make yours down in the comments. Whoever comes closest becomes a published author on this here weblog.

Chris Mottram: 49ers, 31-10

I would argue last week was rock bottom of the Snyder Era — coming off a bye, a 20-point blowout loss at home to a one-win team in which your franchise quarterback looked absolutely lost, followed by a week of PRESS CONFERENCE-GATE. Can they sink even lower? Can’t wait to find out!

JP Finlay: Redskins, 34-17

Skins best effort of the year. Tampa Bay WRs are a worry but Breeland and Amerson play well. Pass rush gets to McCown. RGIII with 2 TDs.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 27-20

After watching Josh McCown’s emotional press conference from last week, I think I’m going to root for the Bucs from here on out. After this week, of course.

Andy Peden: Redskins, 23-17

That seconnd half was classic Jerry & the Cowboys, so no matter what happens this week it will be a letdown. I think it’s a game early for RGIII to come back but he ends up looking good and even running a little. We go into the bye with a three-game win streak!

Jack Kogod: Redskins, 24-21

[Starting RGIII] is a terrible idea. The season is basically wasted. RGIII will be limping at some point. And yet, Redskins win to keep 11-5 alive for one more week.

Congrats to RunsLikeDeer for knowing the Redskins would squeak one out vs. Tennessee. Now he gets to make a guest post!

Chris Mottram: Cowboys, 31-17

I can’t decide if this is gonna be a blowout or if the Skins manage to keep it close. Either way, they’re gonna lose. RGIII returns to lead a 2-6 team against the 3-5 Vikings. The season continues to spiral into deeper sadness.

Matt Terl: Cowboys, 42-11

RGIII plays and it is a complete catastrophe.

Andy Peden, Cowboys, 31-17

Yes, he starts even though he shouldn’t. And that’s coming from an RGIII believer.

JP Finlay: Cowboys, 28-20

Cowboys win, Skins cover, goes under. A lot of D. Murray in the 2nd half.

Jack Kogod: Cowboys, 27-10

Dallas and the under.

Todd Davis: Cowboys, 24-16

I actually think this is closer than we think no matter who starts because the Cowboys run the ball all the time now to hide their own D and shorten the game. But with our current secondary, there’s just no way in good conscience to even remotely hope for another Dallas national game miracle.

Jamie Mottram: Cowboys, 28-17

At Dallas on Monday night. What could go wrong?

Composite prediction: Cowboys, 30-15

It’s Homecoming. You gotta win homecoming right?

Redskins-Cardinals Predictions

Congrats to jake for knowing precisely how much Washington was overmatched against Seattle. Now he gets to make a guest post!

Here are our crackerjack staff’s completely scientific predictions for today’s game. Make yours down in the comments. Whichever reader comes closest gets to be a published author on this here weblog.

Chris Mottram: Cardinals, 20-17

The Skins have been outscored 109-65 in their last three games. I don’t see them doing much to narrow that gap on the road against Arizona’s defense. Logan Thomas quarterbacking would help, but Cardinals fans have the right attitude about his first NFL start: “They are playing as bad a team as you can find in the NFC in Washington.” Yep.

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 27-24

The Redskins somehow win just so Kirk Cousins can regain his crown as the Preferred Quarterback of Every Sports Talk Radio Caller. Go Nats. Go O’s.

Redskins-Giants Predictions

NFL: Washington Redskins at New York Giants

Congrats to Mikeyvanilli for correctly picking that Washington would fall to Philly in a barnburner. Now he gets to make a guest post!

Moving on, here are our crackerjack staff’s completely scientific predictions for Sunday. Make yours down in the comments. Whichever reader is closest to the actual outcome gets to be a published author on this here weblog.

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 31-17

There are so many reasons why this game is difficult to predict — Cousins is still a bit of a mystery, the defense is wildly inconsistent, the secondary is without D-Hall, we don’t know how many points the secondary will cost Washington, and it’s on a Thursday. But it’s at home, and NY, by any statistical measurement, seems to be the worse 1-2 team.

JP Finlay: Redskins, 20-17

Not to be a downer, but once the Eagles made halftime adjustments, Cousins didnt look nearly as good. Take out the bomb to DeSean and the Helu screen, and that offense didn’t move the ball in the 2nd half. Seemed like Cousins didnt like pressure, and Coughlin will see that on film. So low scoring, but I think the Skins still win.

Matt Terl: Giants, 28-24

Honestly, I have no clue. I don’t even know what narrative would be the most Redskins at this point, so I’ll just assume the depleted defense and the perennially awful special teams will give up more points than the offense will score.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 27-20

I think the most Redskins thing would be for them to win this game and for Cousins to look good, therefore getting all of our hopes up before stumbling to a 5-11 season while being equal parts Bad Rex and Good Rex.

Andy Peden: Redskins, 27-20

Giants will not be able to run the ball like they did against Houston. Redskins will run the ball better than last week.

Jack Kogod: Redskins, 24-17

I don’t know how or why.

Todd Davis: Redskins, 38-17

The Redskins are one of the most difficult teams to support for so many reasons, but by fully embracing their heel turn in glorious fashion last week, I’m completely and unreservedly back on board (at least this week). The fightin’, the cheering injuries, the Gruden throwing in a fat lipper on national TV, the smack talk and the go-for-broke beauty of KC1 was as exciting as Savage turning after Hogan “groped” Miss Elizabeth or Tito Santana misplacing a Flying Burrito into Rick Martel.

We all know how these story lines set up and the Skins are perfectly positioned for a heel’s rampage before the inevitable fall. But for at least this week, the Giants will keep kayfabe and everyone’s new favorite villain (complete with offensive naming and a Danny the Brain manager to give heat to the Skins by giving out blankets and backhoes through the Original Americans Foundation) will absolutely roll.

Composite prediction: Redskins, 27-19

Redskins-Eagles Predictions

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 8.38.26 AM

Congrats to SiPhi and Donk Donkerson for correctly picking that the Redskins would do the Jaguars like that. Can’t say I saw it coming. Now they each get to make a guest post!

Moving on, here are our crackerjack staff’s completely scientific predictions for Sunday. Make yours down in the comments. Whichever reader is closest to the actual outcome gets to be a published author on this here weblog.

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 27-24

I don’t know why I’m doing this, other than Nick Foles has looked not good, I’m overly excited about the Skins front seven right now, and Jay Gruden has the quarterback he always wanted to run his offense.

(Also, if anyone sees someone wearing a “KC1″ shirt, you’re legally obligated to punch them in the face.)

Andy Peden: Eagles, 27-17

Cousins now has a career 57.6 completion percentage with 10 TD and 10 INT. I think that probably equates to a shitty day against a real team.

Matt Terl: Eagles, 31-17

Cousins throws at least one severely damaging interception, but his fans are undeterred and launch a petition to have the waiting period waived for his enshrinement in Canton.

JP Finlay: Eagles, 30-21

Eagles are pretty good, and still haven’t fully clicked. The aqua-blue haze from the Jaguars game is hard to see out of, but the Skins front wont get to Foles like they did Henne. Cousins throws a big pick (like Terl said), Skins lose but look decent.

Jack Kogod: Eagles, 27-20

I’ll take Philly and the under.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 27-24

No one runs the Dalton Coast offense better than living legend Kirk Cousins. (Or, you know, Andy Dalton.)

Todd Davis: Eagles, 28-13

Nothing to see here and the Cousins/Dalton nonsense crashes immediately. And I second punching KC1 wearers.

Composite prediction: Eagles, 27-20

Redskins-Texans Predictions

And we’re back! Here are our crackerjack staff’s completely scientific predictions for Sunday’s season opener. Make yours down in the comments. Whichever reader is closest to the actual outcome wins a guest post on this here weblog.

Jack Kogod: Redskins, 27-24

Just enough hope to get us through to the next week.

Matt Terl: Texans, 27-17

The Houston defense annihilates the right side of the Washington offensive line. As a result, RG3 looks terrible. As a result of THAT, we get a week of talk radio apocalypse as everyone with a phone inexplicably demands a switch to Kirk Cousins. SO GLAD FOOTBALL IS BACK, YOU GUYS!

JP Finlay: Texans, 20-16

This will be close to the number (Hou -3). Skins move the ball but can’t score TDs. Texans score on a sack strip fumble return. Keenan Robinson with 10+ tackles.
Alfred > Arian
DeSean > Pierre
Clowney > Polumbus

Chris Mottram: Texans, 23-13

Why would I have any reason to believe Washington can go on the road and win with their shitty offensive line against the likes of J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney? Let’s just hope RGIII makes it out with all his limbs intact.

Andy Peden: Redskins, 24-16

Gruden busts out just enough read option and rollouts for RGIII to be comfortable away from the pocket.

Todd Davis: Redskins, 17-16

Somehow they pull this out, but the offense continues to look awful. No major gaffes on specials will help.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 23-17

Who’s got two thumbs and is fired up for Jay Gruden’s debut?! Yeah, everyone, I suppose. That’s the kind of enthusiasm you get coming off of a three-win season when the hope is a .500 record and healthy QB. Good thing is, Houston is coming off of a two-win season, which is to say we have a chance.

Composite prediction: Texans, 21-20
