The high-water mark sign that something magical could soon be happening is when the crew at First Take actually agrees on something.
I’ve officially seen it all.
“In the end the Washington Redskins will win the division.”
So as you continue to peruse through Google this afternoon searching for brilliant get out of work early ideas, check out this video of Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith actually agreeing that the Redskins will pull off epic end of season streak version 2.0.
As for preseason predictions that Bayless keeps referring to, this is what he had to say before the season started when the Redskins sat at No. 10 in the inaugural 2013 power rankings.
“I have the Redskins, crazy me, ranked third in my power rankings behind San Francisco and behind the New England Patriots at No. 2. I have them at third because I don’t know what’s not to like about the Redskins. I heard Coach Gruden on Mike and Mike [on Wednesday] raving about the Redskins, making a case that sounded like they were one of the top teams in the league. Because as you know, Orakpo is back opposite of Kerrigan so they have two stud pass rushers. It does obviously hinge on the health of RGIII, but I’ going to have to trust that he will be RGIII. Maybe not so much on opening Monday night, [but] as he eases back into the fire. Everything is good about that football team. Obviously the running back is really good and they run a little bit of spread option to keep people off balance, that team is going to be a factor in the NFC and I’m going to pick them to get to the NFC Championship Game against the No. 1 ranked team ranked in my poll, the 49ers.”
Is it an odd time to be talking playoffs? No, especially with four more division games on the horizon.
But on a short week of preparation, the Redskins need to take care of business in the Dome tonight.
The rest of the dominoes can fall after.
