Another Postseason to Anticipate
Speaking of unstoppable marches to and through the playoffs, the Redskins' schedule has been released. After careful consideration and objective analysis, DCO has ascertained that, in an absolute worst-case scenario, the Redskins will finish the 2007 season 13-0-3. The team will jump out to an impressive 6-0 start, with Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts tied for the NFL rushing lead, and Lance Briggs well on his way to Defensive Player of the Year honors (playing for the Chicago Bears).
The winning streak will come to a halt on October 28 in New England, though a last-second, record-setting, 64-yard Shaun Suisham field goal will secure an eventual tie. Ties on the road against Dallas and at home against Chicago will be the remaining bumps in the road as the Skins head towards their season-ending dismemberment of the Cowboys on December 30. This historic thumping will result in the Cowboys missing the playoffs, the firing of Dallas coach Wade Phillips (Wade Phillips!), the definitive end to the inexplicable national love affair with Tony Romo, the cancellation of plans for a new Texas Stadium, and the dissolution of the Dallas franchise. Now THAT'S optimism!
