We all thought free agency had for the most part run its course in Washington. But then Philadelphia released DeSean Jackson and the Washington Redskins swooped in, landing the biggest free agent of the year.
Best of all, Washington didn’t have to guarantee $40 million and send next year’s draft class north.
This week the boys discuss the acquisition of Jackson and what it could mean for this team. There is also the return of Ryan Clark.
Pappas calls it the best free agent period the Redskins have had in years.

The Redskins’ free agency has been much quieter than folks anticipated. There have been signings, and a few names of note; but nothing like what was expected given the millions of dollars they had to spend.
This week the boys take a look at the free agency period in Washington to-date. They assess the talent that has been brought in, and where there are still needs. One need was safety. Should the Redskins have pulled the trigger on one of the safeties? Why didn’t they? What can they do now that they are gone? Is the return of Brandon Meriweather enough?
Of course, the period isn’t over and the guys wonder what other moves could be made. And they play a game of make-a-wish.

It didn’t take long, just a matter of hours, before Mike Shanahan was sent packing, dragging his golden parachute behind as he left Washington.
But then something funny happened, Bruce Allen assumed the mantle of traditional GM, conducted a coaching search, and landed a young up and coming coordinator to take the helm at Redskins Park.
Now that’s different.
This week the boys break down the end of the Shanahan era in D.C. They assess the new head coach Jay Gruden and wonder if this hire was telegraphed.
Then there’s the players. This offseason is one of the most important ones in years for the Redskins. With all the needs, the team cannot afford to get it wrong. The boys identify the holes and discuss the likelihood of key players such as Brian Orakpo and DeAngelo Hall staying in Washington.

The Redskins trotted out a new quarterback, and achieved the same results; losing their sixth straight game, this time to the Falcons.
But this game was different. Kirk Cousins had flashes of real effectiveness with the offense, and at times you thought; ‘this is how it is supposed to look.’
This week the boys break down Cousins’ performance. They look at what he did well, and not so well. Coach-watch is underway, and the boys look at the chances of a Mike Shanahan return.
By the way; it’s Dallas week.
