It is the dawn of a new season. All teams are equal at 0-0, and fans are filled with anticipation and optimism for the new season.
What an exciting time to be alive.
This week the boys look at the Redskins’ training camp and first preseason game. How much can we really take away from the eight or so plays the starters had? They talk about the offensive weapons the team now has and the potential if Robert Griffin III can take that next step in development.
Of course, the line has to do it’s job, the defense must be better and special teams better start being special. If these can happen then there is a chance first-year coach Jay Gruden can have a chance.
Rick Snider stops by to tell us about his new book; 100 Things Redskins Fan Should Know & Do Before They Die.
We all thought free agency had for the most part run its course in Washington. But then Philadelphia released DeSean Jackson and the Washington Redskins swooped in, landing the biggest free agent of the year.
Best of all, Washington didn’t have to guarantee $40 million and send next year’s draft class north.
This week the boys discuss the acquisition of Jackson and what it could mean for this team. There is also the return of Ryan Clark.
Pappas calls it the best free agent period the Redskins have had in years.
The Redskins’ free agency has been much quieter than folks anticipated. There have been signings, and a few names of note; but nothing like what was expected given the millions of dollars they had to spend.
This week the boys take a look at the free agency period in Washington to-date. They assess the talent that has been brought in, and where there are still needs. One need was safety. Should the Redskins have pulled the trigger on one of the safeties? Why didn’t they? What can they do now that they are gone? Is the return of Brandon Meriweather enough?
Of course, the period isn’t over and the guys wonder what other moves could be made. And they play a game of make-a-wish.
