This offseason we have been busy doing very little and liking it. However, Skinscast will return with the upcoming season.
Skinscast will be doing short videos on Redskins-related questions. Here is our first:
While December brought elation, January stole the joy as the Redskins’ season ended on a disasterous note. A dream of a first quarter against the Seahawks became a nightmare as everyone’s worst fears became reality. The star quarterback had blown out his knee. Badly. The game was lost. The season was over. And the savior of the Redskins was seriously injured.
A major knee-surgery later, fans can only hope RGIII recovers fully while wondering if he will even return in 2013.
In the fallout many questions were raised regarding the judgement of the coach and player in exposing themselves to such a fate. This week the boys take a hard look at the decisions made by the team, the potential impact to the future, and what should happen to those responsible.
Strong opinions in this episode. This is one you want to hear.
P.S. We welcome Daniel Shiferaw back this week.
In the climax to the 2012 NFL regular season, the Washington Redskins defeated bitter arch-rival the Dallas Cowboys to capture the NFC East crown and a place in the playoffs.
It was a game for the ages with a storybook ending.
This week the boys break down the awesome victory over the Cowboys. It was a throwback to days of yore. From the smashmouth running of Alfred Morris, to season best defensive performances from DeAngelo Hall and London Fletcher. An offense that managed another 28 points, and an opportunistic defense that created three takeaways. And then there was the magnificent gameplan on both sides of the ball.
It doesn’t get much sweeter than that.
But there’s another game just ahead, and this team is better than the one Washington just beat. The gang looks at a hot Seattle Seahawks team and talk about what the Redskins will need to do to stay alive in the postseason.
The greatest possible ending to a season has unfolded. The Washington Redskins eeked out a win in Philadelphia and now will face their vaunted rival - the Dallas Cowboys – in a winner-take-division match. One will wear the crown. The other will likely sit home and watch.
This is one for the ages folks. We will speak of this one for years to come.
This week the boys talk about possibly the biggest regular season game in the history of the franchise. Heady times, but still football. The offense is clicking, even with a banged-up RGIII. The defense however is giving the gang pause for concern. But Dallas isn’t perfect – and they have their share of blemishes.
Most likely it comes down to desire and destiny.
