Washington Redskins 2011 Schedule: An Optimistic Fan's Bold Predictions

7-9.

I've seen that number over and over again since the schedule for the 2011 season was released. Despite the Redskins having one of the leagues easiest schedules, the number "7-9" pops up time and time again. I will not lie; the Redskins were not a great football last season. But looking at the schedule, it seemed 7-9 underestimated the team just a smidge.

For all intents and purposes, the team should improve next season. Even with few draft picks and (perhaps) a truncated free agency period, the team seems to be trending upwards, not downward. And what will likely end up being a solid combination of younger talent and veteran starters, the Redskins could and should improve.

So you know what? I'm going to be optimistic. Sickeningly so. Despite not knowing what the team will look like, despite not knowing what the other teams will look like, I'm going to go ahead and give my bold predictions on how the 2011 season for the Washington Redskins will turn out.

And who knows? Maybe if I wish hard enough, this could actually become a reality.
