After an impressive victory over the St Louis Rams, the Washington Redskins reverted to a team unable to do anything but lose the divisional match-up on the road. They committed key mistakes. They allowed big plays. And once again, they collapsed on national TV.
This week the boys discuss the loss in New York, the win verses the Rams, and prospects this weekend against another divisional opponent.
Reffkin takes a dim view of their prospects, but Pappas is looking for a silver lining.

Depending on your personality and how you look at the world, the glass is either half-full, or a complete disaster in relation to the Washington Redskins.
Washington lost their season opener on the wings of penalties, turnovers, and another special teams collapse. Then again; the team ran for 161-yards and the defense was much stingier than in the recent past.
This week the boys discuss the initial outing by the Redskins. They hand out the grades and look toward this Sunday’s matchup verses St Louis.

It was one year of glory and then three of non-stop drama. He spoke in the third-person. He used the King’s we. He struggled to accept blame. He wore a glove on one hand.
And now he is warming the bench, until he is cut or traded.
Robert Griffin III electrified Washington his rookie year. He led the team to a division title and home playoff game. But then he got hurt and it has never been the same. The boys have said for some time he is not the long-term solution. Now the coach and front office agree and Griffin is benched for Kirk Cousins.
This week the boys break down the benching of Griffin. They examine what it means for the team moving forward. They also re-look season predictions.

Skinscast is back, kicking off our 10th season talking about the Redskins. Pappas and Reffkin are joined by special guest and longtime alum, Brian Murphy to discuss the season just ahead.
There is lots to talk about this week. The Redskins shiny new right-tackle is turning into a very expensive guard in terms of draft value. There is little doubt Junior Galette is a baller, but will his brand of off-the-field distraction poison the locker-room? The defense have named themselves, this following seven wins collectively over the past two years. And Pappas sets the over/under for Robert Griffin to produce at six games.
Speaking of six, it seems to be the magic number for win-predictions.

A new GM. Free agency. Ten new players added in the draft.
After one of the most significant offseasons in decades, the boys finally decided to get behind the mics and discuss the many changes with the Redskins. They couldn’t be more happy with the direction the team is taking. But as excited as they want to get, they have seen one too many Redskins’ rebuilds to lose their heads.
Things are going well, but the proof comes in September when the new season starts.
