POSTGAME POD: Washington disappoints in the desert and the offense is starting to look like a real problem

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are feeling a lot different about things a week after they were feeling really good about things. To begin this Washington Football Talk ep, which comes after the disappointing loss to the Cardinals, the hosts play a fitting song (that Pete hasn't heard before) and get right into their reactions. How worried are they about the offense, how worried are they about Dwayne Haskins and how worried are they about the direction of the entire roster? They also debate Ron Rivera's field goal decision, which gets fairly complicated. To close, they run through Game Balls and Goats, go through over/unders and recap how their 100 chips were spent before closing out with a lighter segment. If you like podcasts where Mitch makes up a word then gets slammed for it and a not so tasty blame pie gets made, then this is the episode for you.

In their time together, the two hosts choose what they're most worried about when it comes to Ron Rivera's team, pick sides in over/unders and spread out their 100 chips as they try to predict the Week 2 outcome. Once they wrap up, you'll hear two JP-led interviews, the first with Jack Del Rio and the second with Peyton Barber. If you like podcasts where Pete and JP show off their knowledge of the English language and you get to learn about Barber's backstory, then this is the episode for you.

Wondering how legit the Allen Robinson trade market is and deciding what in the opener was real and what was fake

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are back in a parking lot for this Washington Football Talk, and they begin by looking at Washington's wideouts. That quickly leads into a discussion about Allen Robinson — would he fit with the Burgundy and Gold, should they try to get him and is there even really a chance for them to get him? After finishing that segment up, they move into a game of Real or Fake, as they try to figure out what parts of the opening win are going to continue and which parts won't. To close things out, they each decide whether they want to adjust their season record predictions based on Week 1 and then debut one of JP's best ideas ever. If you like podcasts where Mitch goes hard on a name-related topic and JP gets giddy over seeing some familiar faces, then this is the episode for you.

POSTGAME POD: The Washington Football Team takes out Philly to begin their new era with an AWESOME win

This Washington Football Talk starts off with a bang, just like the 2020 season did on Sunday thanks to the franchise's giant win over the Eagles. JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey begin by yelling lots of positive things from the FedEx Field parking lot, before getting into more specific things that stood out to them from the opener, such as the fantastic pass rush and Dwayne Haskins' leadership. Eventually, they get into an impromptu new segment where they debate the Play of the Day before transferring to their always reliable Game Balls and Goats and over/under recap segments. The hosts continue to ooze happiness as things close with JP's tremendous speech on persevering and Pete stumbling through an ad read. While a lot seems to be changing with this organization, that will always remain. Once they sign off, you'll hear Ryan Kerrigan, Chase Young and Jimmy Moreland's postgame interviews, all of which aired on NBC Sports Washington's postgame TV show. If you like podcasts where the Lion King theme song gets broken out and JP comes up with a splendid Haskins nugget, then this is the episode for you. Enjoy this one, guys. We all deserve it.

WE MADE IT. WE MADE IT TO A GAME PREVIEW POD, AND IT FEELS SO GOOD. JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to get you ready for Sunday's Washington-Eagles matchup, and they start by setting and then choosing their first round of over/unders, which is a staple on the show. Then, the guys take you through another hallmark segment, which is now sponsored by a perfect sponsor. After that, you'll get their interview with Eagles reporter Dave Zangaro, who discusses where Washington could have the advantage in Week 1 and whether DeSean Jackson is still scary fast. And lastly, you'll hear JP's 1-on-1 with Antonio Gibson, where JP asks him if he's aware of how buzzy his name is these days.

2020 SEASON PREDICTIONS POD: Everyone picks sides on key over/unders and gives their WFT record projection

One of the more fun pods of the year is back, and it begins with JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and beat legend Chris Kerwin standing in the Washington Football Team's Ashburn parking lot. Quickly, they discuss Ron Rivera's health and the first depth chart before getting into what everyone's here for: their take on important team-related over/unders and their record projections, too. Once they wrap up, you'll hear JP walk around and ask/bother all of the other beat reporters the same questions, which leads to all sorts of shenanigans.

CUTDOWN DAY POD: Everything you need to know about who made and who didn't make Washington's roster

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are coming at you from JP's very pleasant driveway and have a 53-man roster to analyze. To start, the guys praise Alex Smith for making the cut, give their reactions to Adrian Peterson's release and touch on Reuben Foster as well. Once those big topics are done, they then go through each of the position groups and pass on some rapid thoughts about every unit. If you like podcasts where JP and Pete both look back on times they tried to pass rush against Mitch and where Pete has maybe his most embarrassing botches ever, then this is the episode for you. The season is almost here :)

Kyle Brandt, the other half of that controversial Kirk Cousins interview, reacts to Kirk's thoughts (and covers other topics, too)

The Washington Football Talk pod prides itself on being timely, and few shows in our history will be as timely as this. Kirk Cousins is making major news with his opinion on the coronavirus and mask-wearing, and the person he delivered those opinions to, Kyle Brandt, was kind enough to join this operation to explain his interview with the QB. In Brandt's mind, people aren't paying attention to their entire back-and-forth. Allow him to expand. While Brandt's on, he also takes time to explain what he thinks the best-case season is for Washington and absolutely nails the franchise's ice cream flavor equivalent. In all, he was wildly entertaining. If you like podcasts where the guest has the exact same gambling preferences as the hosts, then this is the episode for you.

SPECIALIST POD II: Nick, Tress and Dustin join to celebrate camp's conclusion, preview 2020 and (virtually) hang out

Welcome to the second annual end-of-camp/season preview pod featuring the Washington Football Team's lauded specialists: Nick Sundberg, Tress Way and Dustin Hopkins. Those three join JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey for another extravaganza in what's now officially a tradition for this show. During their hour-plus chat, the hosts asks the players about how weird camp was, Chase Young's ridiculously impressive frame, Dustin's equally impressive frame (at least in the eyes of JP), Ron Rivera's courage and consistency, who's going to break out this year and how much they'll miss the fans. As usual, the specialists were open, candid and hilarious, so you'll absolutely enjoy this one from start to finish. If you like podcasts where you get an exclusive look at all the things that piss Nick Sundberg off and where Tress Way explains a recent coronavirus test gone wrong, then this is the episode for you.

THE POTENTIAL NAME CHANGE POD: How long will the Redskins be the Redskins, and what could they become if they do change?

The hurricane winds are blowing, as JP Finlay says at the start of this Redskins Talk, and those winds could result in the franchise changing its name. That topic, of course, is all that JP, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey really focus on for this pod, which comes after a weekend of constant breaking news related to the Redskins. So, do the three really believe Washington will go by a new name? What could that new name be? And what would the consequences of such a dramatic decision be? There's no point in delaying things any longer; just start listening to all of their thoughts now.

LIVE OURISMAN POD: Debating topics like whom McLaurin's sidekick will be and which position group is most concerning

This Redskins Talk was recorded at Ourisman Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Alexandria, which made JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey quite happy. You wouldn't be able to tell, though, with the way JP and Mitch begin things (by getting into a bit of a tiff). Once they stop bickering, however, a fun edition of Redskins Talk ensues, where the trio cover all sorts of things, including: 1) Whom Terry McLaurin's sidekick at receiver will be, 2) Which way the Redskins would go at QB in 2021 *if* Dwayne Haskins has problems, 3) Which position group is the most concerning and 4) JP's unfortunate bee sting and lawn problems.

For this Redskins Talk, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey returned to their park and, after a few important announcements and promotions, discussed whether the team should retire more numbers, and which players have numbers that are worth retiring. They all have varying opinions on the matter, which made for intriguing back-and-forths. Eventually, the hosts then looked ahead to 2020 and wondered how many sacks the revamped defense could rack up. Is finishing first in the NFL in that category a wild thought or actually possible? If you like podcasts where you get some sprinkled-in analysis on a random pickup basketball game that was happening by the guys' picnic table and the word "shoelace" is ruined for you forever, then this is the episode for you.

Sifting through our mailbag to answer questions on Scherff and cap space, and having a chat about Rivera choosing the Redskins

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey haven't opened their mailbag in a while (read: months), so in this Redskins Talk, the guys decided to fix that and answer questions they hadn't gotten to yet. The segments starts out with some random inquiries and spam, but once things get moving, some interesting discussions follow. Among those discussions is the idea of moving Brandon Scherff to left tackle and what Washington can do with all their cap space. Eventually, JP poses a question of his own: Why did Ron Rivera choose the Burgundy and Gold instead of the handful of other jobs that he could've taken? The trio cover that before finishing things off with some — surprise — golf content. If you like podcasts where Mitch describes the new artwork on his walls and JP commends Pete for being able to read simple words, then this is the episode for you.

JP, Mitch and Pete hold discussions about Daron Payne, Ryan Anderson, the new defensive staff and more

For the first time in months/years/decades, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey were in the same physical location for a recording of Redskins Talk, and this one bounces around between a lot of defense-focused conversations (as well as some largely un-focused conversations, too). After catching up, the guys wonder if Daron Payne is the most talented D-lineman on the team, then look at the franchise potentially trading Ryan Anderson. After that, they wonder how much of a difference the new defensive staff will make in 2020 before closing with rapid-fire analysis on all of Washington's upcoming position battles that will take place this summer. If you like podcasts where Mitch has a verbal slip-up that make JP and Pete lose it, and podcasts where Pete's haircut and JP's skin get analyzed (too?) closely, then this is the episode for you.

Chris Simms explains why Dwayne Haskins is so low in his QB rankings and what Haskins must do to climb upwards

This is a really fun Redskins Talk, and it kicks off with an interview with NBC Sports' Chris Simms. In that interview, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey ask Simms why he put Dwayne Haskins so low (39th out of 40th, to be precise) in his annual QB rankings. The analyst explains how he arrived to that conclusion, whether he'd want Dwayne, Kyle Allen or Cam Newton for 2020 and even gives a superb breakdown of the second-year pro's mechanics. In all, it's a very enlightening segment and you'll learn a lot from it. Once Simms heads out, JP, Mitch and Pete return to recap this week's Zoom calls with Haskins and Ron Rivera, both of which were very impressive, and then close by catching up on Pete the Property Manager's recent exploits.

JP, Mitch and Pete compare their best-to-worst rankings of the Redskins' position groups

Before getting into their individual rankings of the Redskins' position groups, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey begin this Redskins Talk with a few smaller items, such as chatting about JP's mileage of late, the hotel points they're all going to lose out on now that training camp in Richmond isn't happening and their new, special Facebook Live show that debuts this week, which you must tune in for. After all that, they then run through all 10 of the Burgundy and Gold's offensive and defensive position groups and rank those 10 spots from best to worst. The top of their lists all look similar, but after that, there's some parsing and disagreeing. Quarterback, receiver and cornerback were three of the more contentious ones up for debate. Then, to close, JP gives an important update on the "Who'll get married first, Mitch or Pete?" discussion. If you like podcasts where JP is especially wound up and Pete gets yelled at for thinking Ronald Darby may be an OK player, then this is the episode for you.

After that segment, the three hosts go around the horn asking Martin for her take on the Redskins, from why she thinks Dwayne Haskins will be graded unfairly this year to what qualifies as a successful 2020 in Washington. Once she says goodbye, JP, Mitch and Pete come back to wrap things up. If you like podcasts where JP's listening gets compared to that of an elementary schooler, then this is the episode for you.

In their long chat, meant to act as a virtual Memorial Day cookout, the two players and three hosts cover some very good football topics, including what they thought of Ron Rivera's first major meeting, and plenty of non-football topics, some of which got off the rails quick.

This Redskins Talk offers JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey their first chance to discuss Project 11 and Alex Smith, so that's where the three begin.

Saturday was a wild one, and Redskins Talk is here to recap it. First, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey explain how the Trent Williams saga finally concluded, and in doing so, have discussions on what the trade shows about the franchise, what to expect from Saahdiq Charles and the multiple ways in which fans should still be grateful for Trent, even after this messy last year. Eventually, the guys are able to move on to what Washington did on Day 3 of the draft and the draft as a whole, holding segments on their favorite picks as well as the ones they feel like may not deliver. Then, to close out their portion, they — along with producer Tim Shovers and NBC Sports Washington legend Gary Carter — identify their top moments from the past weekend, in which they all give very different answers. Carter, by the way, also talks a lot in the earlier portions of the ep, even though he wasn't supposed to. Once your hosts depart, you'll hear a Thomas Davis interview from Thursday (48:18), a chat that came before the Chase Young pick but one that is still worth revisiting. And lastly, there's full audio from Ron Rivera and Kyle Smith's Saturday night presser (52:40) with the local media, where they wrap up all that they accomplished.

If you like podcasts where JP, Pete and Keim all get a little emo at once and you get a helping of Rich Tandler to make your Monday better, then this is the episode for you.

POSTGAME POD: Dwayne Haskins takes a step back vs. the Jets while the Redskins continue to bottom out

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey feel like they’re stuck in a time warp because these postgame pods are all the same. In this one, which comes after the miserable loss to the Jets, the guys grade Dwayne Haskins, wonder how the defense can be so helpless and generally react to all of the bad football they’re witnessing these days. They also wonder if Bill Callahan has lost the locker room already in addition to going through their Game Balls & Goats and Over/Under segments. If you like podcasts where the trio delivers a strong golf analogy to describe Dwayne’s play and JP and Pete get super angry at Mitch for not really growing a mustache, then this is the episode for you.

A giant argument about Dwayne Haskins and catching up with the analyst who predicted a 2-14 Redskins season

This is one hell of a Friday Redskins Talk. To open, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey analyze where Dwayne Haskins is at going into his home debut before launching into a giant argument about whether the passer must throw for more than 200 yards on Sunday for the game to be a success. After that long, intense segment ends, you get JP's interview with Adam Rank (31:20), the NFL Network analyst who predicted Washington would finish the year 2-14. Rank was mocked this offseason, but he sure looks smart these days. If you like podcasts where the three hosts get as heated as they've ever been, then this is the episode for you.

Explaining the improvements in Dwayne Haskins and looking at why the Redskins will finally score a TD vs. the Jets

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey finally found themselves in the same place again so they decided to record this Redskins Talk to celebrate. The opening portion of it deals with Dwayne Haskins, who had his first presser as starting QB on Wednesday. The hosts give you all you need to know from that presser and also have a broader talk about the ways in which Haskins seems more comfortable than he ever has. During that, though, a yelling match breaks out about expectations for Dwayne, so be ready. Then, there's a chat about Colin Kaepernick and why he doesn't fit in with Washington's plans. To wrap, Pete reads through an article he wrote that features 10 reasons the team will finally score a touchdown when they face the Jets, and JP and Mitch react to those reasons. If you like podcasts where the existence of quicksand is debated and something really, really, really cool happens at the end that makes JP sort of tear up, then this is the episode for you.

Haskins is starting: What should we expect? Plus, Bill Callahan tells a great story about the QB

JP Finlay and Pete Hailey are back from the bye and have some very positive news for you: Dwayne Haskins is the Redskins’ starting QB for the rest of the season. The two hosts explain the timing of this decision, look at his fit with Derrius Guice and Terry McLaurin and discuss what they want to see from him in his start against the Jets. Then, they toss to JP’s 1-on-1 with Bill Callahan, and a highlight of that chat is an insightful story Bill shares about Dwayne’s preparedness. If you like podcasts that include a drawn out but effective shopping metaphor and a Supreme Court reference, then this is the episode for you.

Chad Dukes and Barstool Nate, two diehard Redskins fans, explain what they're still rooting for this year

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey welcome on two of the more passionate Redskins fans you'll find in media, Chad Dukes and Barstool Nate, for this edition of Redskins Talk. First, Dukes calls in, and during his time, he explains why it's so hard to root for Washington to lose even if that may be best for them long-term, runs through his best- and worst-case head coaching moves and also lays out why he wouldn't *hate* it if the team kept Bill Callahan in charge. Then, it's Nate's turn, and he also gets a chance to say what he's rooting for before talking about the lack of hope he's been feeling for quite some time in a segment many will be able to relate to. If you like podcasts where both guests are just as invested as you are and there's also some airplane seating discussion, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 08, 2019
John Keim joins to cover it all, from Haskins to a crazy draft scenario to everyone's bye week plans

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and John Keim got together for a long, all-over-the-place and fun Redskins Talk. To start, the four reflect on JP's report that Bill Callahan was given full control on roster decisions and why that may not be such a big deal. Then, they launch into a big Dwayne Haskins decision. What progress did he show vs. Buffalo, where can he go from here and why is the team not just naming him the starter already? Next, they briefly touch on Cam Newton rumors before JP throws out a wild draft scenario involving Washington potentially taking another QB this coming April. Lastly, a Redskins Talk staple returns: The ranking of everyone's bye week activities. Mitch is doing some incredibly fun stuff, while Keim... isn't. If you like podcasts where three out of the four voices are wearing their sexy sweats and there's some very divergent guesses on Mitch's future golf scores, then this is the episode for you.

POSTGAME POD: The Redskins look both boring and scared to win in Dwayne Haskins’ first start

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are wondering how they got stuck covering such a bad, boring and scared-to-win football team in this postgame Redskins Talk.

They also discuss where Adrian Peterson fits into all of this. If you like podcasts where the hosts diagnose themselves with a bad sickness and Pete learns a valuable vocab word, then this is the episode for you.

To begin, they walk you through Williams' reporting to the organization and what it means for him and the team. The hosts also explain why this has been such a mess and how the franchise has to realize how badly they botched it (even though they may choose not to). Eventually, they move on to discuss why no trades happened involving other guys, such as Josh Norman, Ryan Kerrigan and Adrian Peterson.

They also throw out some names of other players who may be moved. Lastly, they give you info on Dwayne Haskins' Wednesday, a practice in which he got all of the reps. How big of a deal is that?

POSTGAME POD: Plenty of problems still exist, but it feels great to talk about a Redskins win again

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are relieved to finally be recording their first victory pod in ten months, thanks to the Redskins win over the Dolphins in Week 6. Was it pretty? No. Is this team still very flawed? Yes. But they won, and they haven't won in forever, so let's all be in happy moods. From Terry McLaurin and Adrian Peterson's banner days to Bill Callahan's influence to Case Keenum's very average performance, the hosts cover it all. They also give out tons of Game Balls, discuss Mike Tomlin for a bit and even check on the NFC East standings.

Here's an insightful interview with Chris Thompson, as well as Week 6 over/unders

Case Keenum missed walkthrough Wednesday, so what does that mean for him, Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy?

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have an Urgency Pod edition of Redskins Talk, because Case Keenum is in a walking boot and missed walkthrough on Wednesday. This makes the quarterback position very interesting, because if he misses Sunday, the Redskins will have to decide between starting Dwayne Haskins or Colt McCoy. Or, he could play Sunday and then the team will have to decide who his backup is. Overall, it's a very fluid situation, and the three hosts talk about it on their own before also getting input from John Keim, Michael Phillips and Steve Whyno. Eventually, each give their opinion on who SHOULD start if Case can't, and who WILL start if Case can't. To close, they focus on another injury-riddled group: the offensive line.

Sep 26, 2019
WEEK 3 POSTGAME POD: The Redskins should be absolutely embarrassed by their showing vs. the Bears

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey all tried to keep their sanity in this Redskins Talk, and it was incredibly hard considering what happened at FedEx Field on Monday night. The guys start things off with some depressing quotes that JP found on the Internet and then get right to it, assailing the team's arrogance in their offensive schemes, Greg Manusky's defense and the ugly running game especially in the fourth quarter. Next, they try to figure out what should and will happen when it comes to making a switch at quarterback, head coach and defensive coordinator. It feels like some major moves could be coming. Eventually, they go through Game Balls and Goats, where they get even angrier. To close, they try to open up some fortune cookies to find some hope for the future, and not even that goes well. If you like podcasts where the hosts are just as furious as you are and everyone's on the verge of melting down at any given second, then this is the episode for you.

Is Monday night's game against the Bears absolutely a 'must-win'? Plus, 1-on-1 with Cole Holcomb

To begin, they catch you up on some roster moves and injury updates, including the arrival of a new pass rusher and what's going on with Quinton Dunbar. Then, they break out the imaginary poker chips when discussing Trent Williams' future, trying to figure out if he'll come back in October, November or never, or if he'll maybe get traded. Next, they ask whether Monday night's game against Chicago is a "must-win," which leads to a pretty giant fight when one host doesn't fully commit to it being one. Eventually, they quickly touch on Daniel Jones becoming the Giants starter and how it relates to Dwayne Haskins and give an update on the survivor pool. And finally, you'll get JP's 1-on-1 interview with Cole Holcomb, a rookie who's on fire to start and who has quite the connection to Bears QB Mitch Trubisky. If you like podcasts where the guys come up with a new motto and also passive aggressively get mad at Pete (and aggressive aggressively get mad at Mitch) then this is the episode for you.

Sep 19, 2019
Jay Gruden goes 1-on-1 to explain how he's keeping the Redskins together, plus JP's postgame chat with Adrian Peterson

JP also gets Gruden to open up on his thoughts about the team's conservative defensive game plan against Dallas as well as explain some pregame comments he made about Adrian Peterson's running style. Once Gruden's done, you'll hear JP's postgame chat with Peterson (12:15), who reflects on reaching yet another milestone but also on the team's disappointing start to the year.

Things get rowdy early, as the guys wonder what exactly is happening to this defense and whether Greg Manusky is the right man for this job. That leads into some more general analysis and anger about how this season has started and how the things that were supposed to be strengths aren't actually strengths. Eventually, they read off all of the ugly stats they can find just like they did in Week 1 before wondering if Manusky is coaching himself out of his role. Game Balls and Goats follow, which is heavy on Goats (duh) and then they recap their over/unders. Lastly, they address the listeners about something important. If you like podcasts where JP breaks out his "This Season Is Going To (Expletive) Flow Chart" and you get some random discussion about pets, then this is the episode for you.

The guys get right to it, dropping a Charles Dickens reference and then looking back on what was such a promising first half and disappointing second half. What the hell happened? Eventually, they play a game in which they read off really depressing stats, which certainly won't cheer you up but does a good job explaining just how different the first and second 30 minutes were. After that, they dive in to the decision to keep Adrian Peterson inactive and also grade Case Keenum's debut. Lastly, they go through Game Balls and Goats, which leads to discussions about Terry McLaurin, Jay Gruden and the decision to let DeSean Jackson go a few years back, and also reveal the results of Over/Unders.

Then, they launch into a big discussion about the wide receivers, wondering where Josh Doctson fits in all of this (will he be cut, traded or stick around?) and trying to figure out how many wideouts the team will keep. They'll also have a similar chat about running back and Samaje Perine. Eventually, they get to some important podcast housekeeping, which includes some necessary dates and events to start planning for, before moving into Game Balls and Goats. And to close, they play one of their go-to songs and try to build up some momentum heading into the Eagles opener. If you like podcasts where Pete proves he knows nothing about old music and JP gets VERY mad with Mitch over Trent Williams, then this is the episode for you.

May 10, 2019
Looking at the Redskins' injury issues — are they bad luck or preventable? — and discussing the possibility of 'Hard Knocks'
JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and Richmond Bureau Chief Michael Phillips join together for this Redskins Talk, one that covers plenty of crucial topics. At the start, though, the guys get organized, both figuratively by listing off some prizes and milestones those prizes will be given away after, and literally, because JP is trying to get his life together. Then, JP lets Phillips get involved in the LG vs. WR debate from the last 'Skins Talk, a debate Pete isn't budging from despite everyone saying he should. Next, they each list their rookie to watch, since minicamp is this weekend. After that, Phillips goes in-depth on a very important and good article he wrote recently, one that tries to get to the bottom of the Redskins' injury problems. Are they bad luck and fluky, or something that's preventable? Is there even an answer? Lastly, they address the possibility of Washington being on "Hard Knocks," something a lot of fans have been asking about. If you like podcasts where you hear a bit too much about Pete being sweaty and Mitch gets way too hyped about the Bears' kicking competition, then this is the episode for you.]]>
