Listen: Redskins, NFC, Cowboys discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"Let's get to the mock schedule. Have any kind of music knows. That's right. We can't. That's no music. No. No. We haven't music there should be play a bed. You want to bed their leading up to this Gary can play bed, but we never had an open for in. All I think we did. We did. I think we had pomp and circumstance, dancing girls and a live marching band studio. Once I don't think we remember when we had that life. I do remember that this was a big deal. I don't think you should downplay. All right mock, schedule Redskins two thousand gene. What does that? I don't know. I pulled him award music. She sounded pleasant kind of us the have when you're trying to get. What what kind of music? Do you play go to bed at night? I don't play any music. Do you ever do like, you know, the ocean sounds like oh I've done that before? Really? Yeah. It's helpful actually. All right. Nice. Let me give you overall with the Redskins have in terms of their opponents. Of course, they have their division. Opponents giants. The Cowboys eagles home and away. They also play the NFC north this year. That's not going to be easy on paper. Green Bay Chicago. Minnesota and Detroit they play the AFC east, which includes New England. And maybe a very improved jets team. Also the bills and the dolphins who should be weighed down this year. And then the two opponents and a lot of people don't understand how this works every NFC east team plays the same schedule with the exception of two games out of the sixteen. And that is where you match up with the other divisions in the NFC, and you play the team that finished in the same place that you finished in last year for the Redskins that the whole divisions. Playing the NFC north. But then in the NFC south in the NFC west the NFC south opponent will be Carolina for them in the NFC. West opponent will be San Francisco there is an emphasis this year of in this hundred year of the NFL celebrating one hundred years of being a league they have told us that the schedule will emphasize some national television rivalry games. So I've I've used that as a way to get the Redskins into some national television appearances, by the way every team in this goes back. I think three years now every team is guaranteed a Thursday night game as part of the Thursday night package, really for competitive reasons. So that a team that everybody has to face that short short work. We now, you you you, you know, so much about this scheduling, I'm already blown away by your knowledge. It's pretty remarkable. But you know, when you talk about this hundred year celebration at. That league wants to do with rivalries people really think about this that much because the first one that would come to mind with the Redskins is the Cowboys. Right. But that's only fifty years old. I mean, if we're going back to old school beginning of the NFL. It's Redskins giants who played each other in the first NFL championship game the Redskins ever played in nineteen thirty seven. I mean, that's that's the old school rivalry the Redskins. The giants played each other for thirty years before the Cowboys were relevant. Right. So what are you out? Okay. I mean, I in your scheduling to let me wrenching under just going to tell you that. That's great that in the nineteen thirties. The giants the giants and the Redskins celebrating the hundredth anniversary. So you're going back old school. Well, I did not put a Redskins giants game in prime. This. Even mentioned the first game. And he's already got a problem with it. All right. So one of the other thoughts, I gave to the schedule is I think the red skins with their over under number of being six basically predicted to finish near the bottom of the of the NFC that they're not going to end up with as many national television games as they've had in recent years.."
