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….
