The Skins schedule will be released at 7pm tonight. As a process of elimination I have a pretty good guess who the Skins will face week 1.
- The Skins faced the Giants on the road last year in the opener and the NFL usually likes the Skins at home week 1 because of our stadium. So I dont think it will be a road game. We also wont face the Giants because we played last year.
7 possible games left
- The Skins faced a AFC team at home (Dolphins) 2 years ago in the opener. So I dont think we will face another AFC team week 1.
5 possible games left
- I got a feeling the Cowboys will be on the road at Denver week 1 after reading several reports. I also think we will face the Cowboys to open their new stadium week 2 on SNF. So we wont face the Cowboys week 1.
4 possible games left
- I dont think it will be the Eagles in DC because we faced a NFC East team last year (Giants)
3 possible games left
Out of those 3 (Bucs, Saints, Rams). We faced the Bucs to start off the 2004 season. So take off the Bucs.
That leaves the Saints and Rams. The NFL would want the game that will draw the most fans between these two teams. The Rams upset us in DC last year and I cant wait to get revenge. At the sametime the Rams suck. Im going to go out on a limb and say.....
Our first game of the season will be Saints at Redskins (1pm) then we go to Dallas to kick off their new stadium on SNF.
I know this is all guesswork and nothing more. I did get the Dolphins right two years ago and almost got the Skins game right last year ( I thought the Giants would face the Cowboys for the ratings in the opening Thursday game).
So who do you think the Skins will play week 1?
