Conversation Starters: Predicting the Most Disappointing Game of 2012

Offseason. Offseason. Offseason. The Hogs Haven writing staff is pretty good at finding stupid topics to talk about, and today's soup du jour is predicting the worst loss of 2012 for our beloved Burgundy and Gold. Every year we have one. Last year it was the shutout to the Bills (first and only shutout in Shanahan's career) and every recent year before that was the Rams and Lions games. I still remember saying on one of our episodes of Redskins Lunchbox that the Rams game was a BYE week. Oops.

Well, for as long as I can remember we always lose to a terrible team at least once a year. After the jump is the Redskins full schedule, but I'm going with the Cleveland Browns week 15. There's no reason we should lose this game even with several key starters (like all teams) that will be on IR. I can't think of any way we can lose this game, but somehow Brandon Weeden will scramble for 18 yards to seal the game. One of our kickers gets hurt so Sav Rocca is trying to toe-kick the game winner. I can't put my finger on it yet, but going into the Dawg Pound with the melancholy storyline of Holmgren vs Shanahan for Robert Griffin III has us losing the game despite winning the season.

Ooo...hook and ladder Hail Mary play to Josh Cribbs? A team dares to run the Swinging Gate against us...and succeeds?? Whatever it is, it'll be unique.
