The Washington Redskins went to Carolina and received nothing less than a first-class butt whoopin.’ Despite the loss, they have a chance to grab a share of first place with a win this weekend.
This week the boys discuss the dismantling in Charlotte. They note the obvious shortcomings of the squad, but point out the areas of growth. They likewise discuss their chances to take a share of the division lead.

After what seems weeks and weeks off, the boys are back. In the meantime the Redskins had their biggest comeback victory ever, and their highest score total in over 10-years.
This week the boys discuss the past few games. Washington is clearly a team getting better. The comeback against Tampa showed character. The loss in New England respectable. The win against New Orleans magnificent.
They discuss the burning questions of whether to extend Kirk Cousins and whether DeSean Jackson is here next year.
Had some sound issues but still clear enough to hear us all.

Head coach Jay Gruden called a ‘Code Red.’
Things just got serious.
There was plenty to hate about the Jets’ game. No rushing attack, poor defense, and bone-headed plays by the quarterback. Well into another season behind center, can we not say this is who Kirk Cousins is? And if the Redskins continue to be horrifically bad in the third quarter, can we not blame the head coach?
Following another debacle in the Meadowlands, one that brought the Redskins to 2-4, Gruden made it clear the next game verses Tampa Bay is dire. Washington must win.
This week the boys talk about another disappointing effort on the road. They examine the broken parts and consider the chances of a recovery this Sunday.

After a lack-luster muddling offensive performance on the shoulders of a bend-don’t-break defense, Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins awoke to force overtime and the specter of an improbable victory.
But then the old Kirk showed up, and a pick-six later the Redskins walked off, heartbroken and dejected.
This week the boys discuss the let-down in Atlanta. Quarterback is front and center and Pappas and Reffkin waste no time clashing over the extent of blame to assign Cousins.
They discuss a too-soft run defense and wonder where their own rushing attack went.
Then there’s another trip to New York and another must-win game.

After a tough road loss in New York, the Washington Redskins returned home to show their early-season success was no fluke, as they dominated the Philadelphia Eagles in most every category.
But being a team still building an identity, it took a gutsy comeback skippered by Kirk Cousins to get the victory.
This week the boys discuss the comeback against Philly. In addition to the aforementioned comeback, Cousins threw no picks. Has he finally turned the corner? They emerged from September even at 2-2, is this enough to give them a shot at a season? The front-seven on defense seem impressive, are they for real? How far can this team go? The boys speak to all of the above.
An old friend stops by in the form of Columnist Rick Snider. He and Pappas discuss the beat, and how it has changed with the advent of technology; what makes an old newspaper man like Snider start a podcast, and of course; his thoughts on the football team.
