New Skinscast Episode – The beasts of the east

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

skinscastbangIn 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.

New Skinscast Episode – Best present ever

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

skinscastbangThe 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.

New Skinscast Episode – Back in Business

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

skinscastbangWith 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.

New Skinscast Episode – It is a wrap

Thursday, January 5th, 2012


The Redskins ended a bad season on a horrible note, leaving many grateful the pain of the 2011 campaign is finally over.

There is a lot to do this week to get ready for the offseason. A brief review of the final game in Philadelphia kicks off the extra-long episode, followed by a review of the top quarterbacks in college and how they performed in their bowl games. All agree a franchise quarterback is priority 1. The draft is a concern and what the Redskins may have to do to get their man is discussed. The week 17 heart-throb Matt Flynn is examined, and other scenarios considered.

Jack Anderson rejoins the team in segment two, mainly to gloat about a steak dinner he and Reffkin won in a bet from Pappas and Murf. And then there is our favorite game – who stays and who goes in the offseason.

In the fourth segment Rick Snider of the Washington Examiner joins us and talks about other options if the quarterbacks cannot be had in the draft.

This is our final episode until free agency. So we made sure to give extra to hold you over.

New Skinscast Episode – From bad to worse

Thursday, October 27th, 2011


Washington must have figured once wasn’t enough as they went to Carolina to lose to another one-win team. And that was the good news. Along the way they managed to loss more starters to injury, while getting gutted by the run and giving up big plays through the air.

In the aftermath, Pappas awoke to proclaim he knows exactly what ails the Redskins, and he can’t wait to tell us all about it. Reffkin and Daniel listen politely, then tell us what is really going on.

The gang gives us the complete breakdown and ask with the injuries how bleak the outlook is.

Meanwhile the predictions for this weekend might just surprise you.
