Yeah, we've got to really tank this thing to assure ourselves of not having to sell out draft picks again for a potential top quarterback.  And we better get the real deal, not a gimmick this time around. 

We better cut Colt then and roll with Josh Johnson and a mid-round Qb like Ridley, Thorson, Rypien, McSorely etc

Only things that matter are finding out which ones will be in Prime Time. So which are the night games (Sunday/Monday/Thursday) and any Saturday games?

Find those and put in PEN (not pencil) a big "L" next to that game. Once you've done that, then pick an NFCE opponent that we will go 1-1 against. Now the remaining NFCE opponents we will go 0-2 against (slight chance of one more 1-1 record but we will get swept by one of the 3).

Do a coin flip on the opening game. Usually its a loss but this year we won. 

Also, assume right around Thanksgiving to Christmas, that we will lose 3 out of those 4 games.

Take a non-divisional team you think we have a hard time beating? Put a "W" there. This is the "tease" game.

Take a non-divisional team that you know we should throttle and put a "L". This is the "reality" game.

Do all of that above, and you'll have your final record.

This is what this team is like under Snyder/Gruden/Allen

2-4 in division (likely two of those losses are prime time; being nice and going with the optimistic double split)
1-1 with the tease/reality games
1-3 down the stretch
0-1 another prime time game (Thursday night)
1-0 opener (yeah, I'm being incredibly optimistic now)

Gives us 5-9 with two other games to be coin tosses. So, a range of 5-11 to 9-7?

Sounds about right.

This sounds smart.  It also sounds like it could be a drinking game.

Wouldn't that be 7-9? If we're at 5-9 with 2 games to decide..

Gave it a little flex in case things come up Milhouse for Washington. But 9-7 is essentially the ceiling.
