New Skinscast Episode – The Grand Opening

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012


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.

The Trade

Monday, March 12th, 2012

The boys weigh in. 

The timing of the trade Friday between St Louis and Washington that has the Redskins sending their first and second-round picks in this year’s draft, as well as the first-round picks in 2013 and 2014 in return for the Rams’ 2012 second overall pick prevented us from getting together on a special episode. But we still wanted to go on record with our thoughts on the trade.


We said on the show this offseason is the most important for the Redskins in a generation. With the trade, we believe the 2012 offseason will define the team for the next decade.

If the presumptive selection of Robert Griffin III pans out – it will be viewed as the bold move that restored glory to the franchise. If we are treated to Heath Shuler Part 2 however, it will become another example of epic front office failure in Washington.
