    Thoughts on 2012 Schedule

    Six of first nine games on the road - five out of seven at home to finish the season against stiff competition. Playing Washington twice toward the end of the season is not favorable as RGIII will have some games under his belt and a better understanding of Shanahan's offense.

    I dont like the opening game against the Giants on a Wed. Football has to stay on the weekends. Too bad the Pittsburgh game is in December. Too far to travel in winter.

    I think the toughest stretch will be the five games following the bye (@Ravens, @Panthers, Giants, @Falcons, and @Eagles). Dallas needs to win three of the first four to build a cushion for that stretch.

    Dallas opens with a game on the East coast followed by a game on the West coast, but has a week and a half between so it should be able to adequately regroup and prepare.

    I like being done with the Giants and Eagles earlier than usual. I hope the Redskins are eliminated from the playoffs and play RGIII sparingly in the season finale.

    Well, if the Redskins are out of playoff contention, they'll be playing RGIII as much as possible to prepare him for the following season. That's how it is with rookie QBs.

    I agree with you about the five-game stretch after the bye being the toughest set of games the team will play. However, the entire schedule is pretty tough. Seattle, TB, and Carolina should all be much improved teams and the 'Skins should be better with RGIII.
