With arguably the most exciting player to play for the Redskins in our lifetime, and in the midst of a outstanding string of victories, the boys decided to get off their collective ass and get in the game.
This week Skinscast returns to discuss the wonder that is unfolding with this team. From incredible talent at quarterback, running back, receiver and outstanding scheming and play-calling from the coaches; there is plenty of praise to go around. At the same time, early concerns for the defense have become reality, so there is still room to improve.
But something is different about this squad and the gang wonders if finally we have witnessed a turn of the corner and whether this is just the beginning of something wonderful.
Lots to discuss after a long layoff and we welcome Jack Anderson back to the team.

Sometimes things are just what they seem. Sometimes things are just as advertised. Sometimes dreams really do come true.
Fans of the Washington Redskins could only gaze in amazement at the performance of Robert Griffin III and the 2012 Redskins. Against New Orleans Griffin was lights out, showing poise and effectiveness well beyond his years. It was the best performance by a rookie quarterback in his debut in a long time, perhaps ever. And best of all, it ended with a win for the Redskins on the road.
This week the boys break down the win against the Saints. They marvel at the effectiveness of the offense, the playmaking of the defense, and look hard for things to criticize. Washington plays St Louis this weekend and the gang wonders what a win and a 2-0 start could mean.
And all the while they try and tell themselves it was only one game…

The practices have been practiced. The games have been played. And just the cuts remain between now and the start of the season.
This week the boys discuss the team’s performance in the preseason. They highlight the guys who made the cut, and point out the guys who may get cut. The guys have one last chance to change their season record predictions, and there’s a game to play in just a matter of days.
Pappas is so pleased he finally got something right and things could be so much better if Reffkin would only learn to operate a microphone.

It was a not-so-nice welcome to the league for Robert Griffin III as the Chicago Bears showed him what a real NFL defense looks like in the second preseason game of the year. The kid finally got his uniform dirty, but managed to keep his poise while under pressure. But it was the first team defense that was most exposed, surrendering big plays and points.
Thankfully Kirk Cousins and the backups came in to restore some dignity and make it a game.
This week the boys discuss the game in Chicago. They breakdown the breakdowns and look towards the all-important third preseason game against the Colts this weekend.

Tomorrow we get our first glimpse of Robert Griffin III in live game conditions. For the first time in his professional career, the young quarterback will contend with defenders allowed to hit him, and coverages designed to confound him.
This week the boys discuss the goings on at training camp, breaking down the team position by position. They consider who has impressed, and how the depth chart appears to be shaking out. It’s too early to talk about cuts, but positions are up for grabs and a slow start in camp can be forgotten with strong performances in the preseason.
And of course they conjecture on what to expect from the first outing from Griffin and identify what they hope to see against Buffalo.
