The game against San Francisco exposed a team that may be in the process of giving up on the year and the coach. What was unthinkable just a few weeks ago is now front and center; is this team about to make another change at the top?
It is not what anyone was after; but in the wake of poor effort and horrible execution; the specter of more change in Washington is front and center.
This week the boys discuss the collapse against the 49ers on national TV. They assess a horrific performance by Robert Griffin III and ask whether he is the man for the job right now.
And they wonder what the future holds for this coaching staff and roster.

In Minnesota, the Redskins let down – in every area of the game. After a fantastic first half; they allowed 20 unanswered points to lose to one of the worst teams in the league. It was an epic collapse; one that spelled the potential doom for coach and roster alike, along with the specter of another lost season.
This week the boys take a look at the debacle in the dome. They take stock of the current staff and players, and ask whether another seven game run is possible.
Of course, there is also a game to be played this weekend.

When you put up 500 total yards, over 200 on the ground, convert 70% of your third downs, and score 30 points; you are probably going to have a good day.
This week the boys break down the big Redskins overtime win against the Chargers. The offense was clicking on all cylinders and the defense made one of the biggest goal-line stands in years. Special teams still needs work but Washington took an important step in saving a season.
Does this win make it all better? No, but another victory in Minnesota could be a big step in the right direction.

At 21-7, the Washington Redskins made us dare to believe. They had followed the roadmap, creating turnovers and leading long drives for scores, which kept the ball out of Peyton Manning’s hand. And when DeAngelo Hall came up with the pick six, we felt that Washington was on their way.
But it was not to be. The Broncos got hot at the same time the Redskins’ offense went cold. Special teams chipped in with their own disasters and the next thing you know, Denver posted 31 in the fourth quarter to win the game going away.
This week the boys break down the game at Mile High. They measure progress-to-date for Robert Griffin III and the offense, while wondering how hard you can be on the defense. And what does this mean for the rest of the way?

A funny thing happened last Sunday. The Redskins were playing a solid game against the Chicago Bears; managing a close game in the first half and appearing the better side.
Then Jay Cutler got hurt.
Just as the collective football universe was writing of the Bears’ chances to win – a shootout occurred with Chicago hanging 300 yards and 24 points on Washington in the second half. But the Redskins would not be denied; racking up 499 yards, 209 on the ground, and plenty of their own points.
The end result was a 45-41 win.
This week the boys breakdown the win. Robert Griffin III appears to be back to his old self. Jordan Reed is a monster tight end. DeAngelo Hall had a great game. Brian Orakpo with his first defensive score. But then there was another breakdown on special teams. There was the foolishness of Brandon Meriweather. And the age of London Fletcher.
A lot to talk about this week.
