I need a break from the Zorn/Shanahan talk for a second...that OK with everyone? The NFL PR just emailed out the Redskins 2010 opponents, so I thought I'd take a look at some brewing headlines for next year:
Home: Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts
Away: Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans
There will be some headlines the media will surely love to talk up and which will undoubtedly create some great nuggets for Skip Bayless to endlessly ramble about, including:
1.) Haynesworth is going back to Tennessee
72 straight hours of hearing that the trade was not worth it....as the media still complains about Haynesworth playing on average 73% of the plays per game...his average in TEN.
2.) Snyder will get a first-hand look of Cutler in Chicago, aka "the one who got away"
He has to be thanking his lucky stars that trade never panned out
3.) The Redskins will get a chance to redeem themselves in Detroit.
4.) Brett Favre coming to Fedex?
We probably won't know until September 1st if Favre will play "one more" year. I definitely can't handle another year of Favre flip-flopping and ESPN's 24-hour coverage of it.
5.) Bruce Allen faces his old team as the Buccaneers return.
I know Tampa Bay fans would hate to lose that game.
6.) Kyle Shanahan coaching against his old team, the Texans

It'll be interesting to see how many Redskins fans show up to the games next year. I'll be adding polls on that topic soon.
