Just for fun...

Put on your prognosticating hats.
Clear your minds.
Look into the dark mysterious future.

And take a stab in the dark at 3 things that, however unlikely, you boldly predict will happen during the 2011 Washington Redskins season.

We'll check back in at the end of the season and see if anyone nailed something truly prescient.

I'll go first.

The Washington Redskins lead the league in rushing in 2011

Laron Landry doesn't play a regular season down in 2011

Redskins earn a wildcard playoff berth and Mike Shanahan wins Coach of the Year honors

The Redskins sweep the Giants and finish second in NFCE. They also win a Monday night game against the Cowboys and split with the Eagles.

The Redskins rank in the top 8 in rushing with a team total over 2,000 yards.

Malcolm Kelly is signed by the New England Patriots after he is cut and has more catches than Albert Haynesworth has games played in.

Anthony Armstrong proves he is an all star deep threat and earns a Pro Bowl birth.

The Redskins make the playoffs, but are still listed by ESPN in their power rankings as the 31st ranked team.

(Only one of these I think is in the realm of possibility)

1. Jarvis Jenkins earns Defensive Rookie of the Year honours.

2. Redskins begin to finally establish a sense of home field advantage and begin making FedEx Field a difficult place to visit for opponents. They finish the season with a 5-3 home record.

3. Stephen Bowen records 4 sacks and 1 forced fumbled combined in his two games vs. his old team, the Cowboys.

The team will keep two quarterbacks on the active roster - Rex and Beck.

Chris Cooley, Brandon Banks, Ryan Torain, and LaRon Landry will be placed on IR just prior to final roster cuts.

Graham Gano will have a pro bowl season.

UTEP

Redskins finish bottom 10 defensively. Showing some improvement as we have better talent but still displaying the same poor schemes.

Redskins finish 4th in the NFCE but show improvement in how tight the games are, rather than 50 point losses we lose by a td most of the time.

Barry Cofield proves to be the best pick up of the offseason, followed by Jenkins and Kerrigan but its not enough to offset a brutal secondary who play without landry for most of the season.

1. Graham Gano shocks everyone when he converts a 60 yard field goal, but misses an extra point in the same game.

2. Roy Helu finishes the season with over 1,200 yards rushing and 15 TD.

3. Donte Stallworth finally has his breakout season in the NFL, breaking Art Monk's team record by hauling in 107 receptions.

1) Skins will start 4-0.

2) Terrence Austin will overtake Anthony Armstrong as the 3rd reciever and deep threat.

3) Skins will average over 5.0 yards a carry while no one runningback goes for over 1100 yards.

I think you missed the 'bold' part :)

They don't have to be positive predictions, but those sound more like your usual predictions to me.
