Everyone is making predictions this year for the Skins......we hear the "pros" saying 8-8, 6-10, 9-7, etc......what's your opinion? How bout taking it a little futrther and predict some stats for some of our stars. Who will hit some major milestones?
I am saying we go 10-6....make the wild-card w/ the Eagles having the division. I know the Giants are good but I think they are ready to topple. I still think they will have a strong season....8-8. I see the Eagles as the real test in the division....I know Westbrook is banged up but they now have Shady backing him up....they have a new great receiving threat in Maclin....and as much as I hate him...you can never count McNabb out! I see the Eagles at 11-5......with the Boys bringing up the rear at 6-10.
As for breakout performances......
JC will have 3800+ yards passing and 28 TDs....thats right
Portis will get 1200 yards and 12 TDs
Santana will break 1000
Malcom Kelly/Devin Thomas.....one will get 700 yards and 10 tds...the other 350 yards and 3 TDs
ARE will throw 2 TD passes
Cooley will catch 60 with 8 TDs
Orakpo gets 10+ sacks....70+ tackles
Fletcher gets a Pro Bowl nod finally
D Hall gets 7 picks (2 for TDs)
Both DEs will get 8+ sacks (4+ for each starting DT)
Landry will have 6 picks and kill 2 people with hits (just kidding....Carson Palmer crack)
I don't know if those are really breakout performances.....but these are my predictions....I think a lot will hinge on the health of Portis. If he goes down early....alot of this is out the window. We can't afford to lose the threat of his running but especially his blocking. There are not many RB's I see that block half as well as Portis.
Now.....let's hear from you.....what do you think....anything you want to blast me on????
