Redskins Hog Heaven fans have spoken. The Washington Redskins will win nine or more games in 2010 according 58.6 percent of those responding to a poll on this site.
Here's the breakdown of fan votes (percentages are rounded):
- 10 or more games - 30.1%
- 9 games - 28.5%
- 8 games - 22.0%
- 7 games - 10.7%
- 6 or fewer games - 8.6%
Wow. Whatever happened to the bell curve? I looked for a voting bulge around eight games. Lets chalk this up to off-season optimism.
Since 2001, the Redskins have averaged a 7-9 record in the first year of a new head coach's era. Sports book bodog.com pegs the over/under on Redskins wins this year at 7.5 games. Mike Shanahan went 8-8 in his first year as head coach with Denver (1995). And that was with John Elway and Terrell Davis in the backfield.
I'm just saying....
