The Redskins have a tough schedule this season. Thats what happens when you win your division. Therefore, it will be tough for them to duplicate last years 10-6 record. Their defense will be greatly tested against QBs Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Peyton Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Matt Ryan and Eli Manning - twice. Meanwhile, how will RG3 hold up I see an 8-8 season.

RG3 has a big game against a weak Philadelphia defense to start the hype machine (full disclosure Im an Eagles fan so I know how bad the D is). But the Skins fall short in the division and finish 9-7. I hate to say it, the Cowboys win the division. I hope Im wrong.

I predict the Redskins will go 9-7. Defenses in the NFL are good at adjusting to new looks like the read-option. With RG3 being an injury question on any big hit, I think the season will depend on how much of a pocket passer he can become to offer another look. I also believe a harder schedule means expectations cannot be high.

Itll be tough to repeat a 10-6 season, but the Redskins have made me a believer. No big win streaks, but theyll still grind their way to 10-6. Theyll be a Redskins Redux. Playoff team but stymied again by a first-round opponent.

Im going to do something Ive never done pick the Redskins to win 11 games. I think this team has a chance to be very good. All of the offensive weapons are back. The wild card is going to be RG3 and his ability to stay healthy. More importantly, will he be a smarter quarterback The big question mark is going to be the secondary. Can the young guys make strides early on and contribute Will Brandon Merriweather be able to stay healthy One thing is for sure, Brian Orakpo returning is a huge plus for the defense. If all the chips fall into place, then this team will go 11-5, repeat as NFC East champs and go to the NFC Championship Game.

11-5 in the regular season, Redskins advance to the NFC title game.

A roller coaster 9-7 in the regular season, win the wild-card spot, get knocked out of the NFC Championship.

I expect the Redskins to go 9-7 this season. Theyll not only have RG3 back, but I am optimistic that Brian Orakpo will stay healthy. I look for Ryan Kerrigan to have a tremendous season. Go Skins

I expect the Skins to go 10-6. That should be good for a wild-card slot, and if their division record is good enough, a 10-6 could get them the divisional title. Skins have the best 1-2 quarterback combo in the NFC. RG3 and Cousins stay healthy all season...big year

9-7 Its a tougher schedule this year because of winning the division, but this should probably be enough to win a mediocre NFC East. A healthy defense (to start the year) has to improve on the scoreboard. The Skins are the anti-Nationals with Stephen Strasburg and rushing RG3 back to play. Even if hes cleared to play, start him after the bye. Theres too much risk for the 10-year future.

Redskins should be a 10-6 team with a sweep of the Eagles and splits with the Cowboys and the Giants. Playoffs Yes. How far Not far enough. NFC Championship game, perhaps.

I predict the Redskins will be decent enough this year, likely going 9-7 or 8-8, but certainly losing both regular season games to the New York Football Giants. If they make the playoffs, it will only be as a wild card, because the division is also already locked up.

After such an exciting season as last year (here comes the cop-out part), it may be harder than ever to predict how the Redskins will do (is this guy full of it or what). RG3 is healthy, but the team still is as thin as a runway model at D-back and O-line. So let me roll my magic dice and forecast a 10-6 year and a wild-card playoff win. With more time to gel and more money to fill the holes, next year could be a breakout (go ahead wimpy, say Super Bowl) season for the Skins.

Everybody is concentrating on the health of RG3, and obviously that is going to be a huge component in our victories. But we have other massive weapons in our offensive (both running backs, Morris and Helu, and in the passing game, Garcon -- and yes, even my solid go-to Moss) that it would be very difficult for any team not to think we are a contender to take the NFC East and to vie for a spot at MetLife Stadium in February. I am interested to see exactly what K. Shanahan has in store for our offense, one, in using Helu more effectively and two, to see if the coaches and RG3 can actually work together adequately to give Robert some movement but also to keep him from getting injured (although, Kirk Cousins is a solid No. 2). If the secondary defense can step up their game (heres to hoping), then there is no stopping us. Ill say 12-4. Unfortunately, I am not going to ride the were going to the Superbowl train because I think injuries will plague us once again this year. We will win the NFC East (no wild-card pick this year) and take a loss in the NFC Championship.

Skins go 10-6, make the playoffs, but lose in a heartbreaker NFC Championship game.
"Skins go 10-6, make the playoffs, but lose in a heartbreaker NFC Championship game."
Surpassing last years 10 wins would be no small accomplishment. The defense - which has finished in the bottom half of the league in Jim Hasletts first three years as coordinator - should be able to take a step forward with players now fitting better into his 3-4 scheme. The offense, though, may slip back from the top five. Because of concerns about his knee, RG3 likely wont be as much of a threat on the ground, and I think he could even be held out for a game or two later on as a precaution. Final prediction The team has impressive moments but finishes 9-7, barely missing the playoffs.

11-5 and making playoffs - with a tough road schedule.

I think the Redskins are going to win their division again, even though they have a tougher schedule this year. I think theyll end up 10-6. I hope they go to the Super Bowl, but it will be hard to get past the 49ers and Seahawks in the NFC. So I think theyll get past the first round of playoffs, but may not have the firepower to go further.

I believe the Skins will do one better than last season 11-5 AND theyll get to the second round of the playoffs. Not fully convinced RG3 will play more carefully than he did last year.

For 17 years -- and you can check this -- I have always offered a prediction of 8-8 for the Redskins. The NFL is that kind of league. Injuries play too big a role. This year I am with the program. I think the Redskins can win the NFC East at 11-5. They can win with RG3 or Kirk Cousins, but the Redskins have to be better on defense.
