“What if” everything breaks right for the 2020 Redskins?
By Tim Meek
There’s really only one reputable place to rely on sports predictions for an upcoming season, and that’s Vegas.
They’ve built that glitzy oasis by getting it right. And that doesn’t bode well for the 2020 Washington Redskins. Vegas has the Redskins as the second-to-worst odds to win the Super Bowl and a season Over/Under win total of 5.5.
Redskins fans have become quite cynical over the past 30 years. Who can blame you? The team has consistently underachieved and lacked direction. So what will it take for the Redskins to shock the league and take a gigantic step to the playoffs? Sure, it’s a scenario that’s highly unlikely, but in the NFL it’s plausible and it does happen. Worst-to-first stories have become the norm. What if changing the culture from the top produces some good fortune and karma this team has lacked for decades? (Yes, I know Dan is still here)
What needs to happen this season for the odds-makers to be wrong? It’s not nearly as far-fetched as you think. Let’s dive in.
