Burner’s Burning Questions: Grades, Evals, Questions, Regular Season, 2018

Rate this Entry
Greetings to everyone here and greetings to all of our friends on social media. We hope you become a member of the family here.

The new season is about to begin and the Redskins are facing another tough sixteen game schedule. In the first in-season entry to our new in-season blog for 2018, we will make a game by game prediction.

In this new format, BBQ will continue to post grades, evaluations, and questions each week during the season. This new format will be far better than trying to have a series of blogs after each game and it will allow us to have better organization and continuity for this blog.

All of us would love to see a 16-0 record, but let’s see if we can make some accurate prognostications. Are you ready for some football?
