Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

There was a lot to not like about week 1 of the 2014 Washington Redskins season. Turnovers, special teams mistakes, and let downs in the secondary added up to defeat in what should have a very winnable game.

But not everything was a negative, and there were some positives to take away from the game.

This week the boys break down the loss to Houston. They take names of some players not living up to expectations – but manage to celebrate the things done well. There is another game this weekend and the boys hope the team can get well at the home opener.

New Skinscast Episode – Back to the start

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

It is once again that time to kick off a new season of Redskins football. And once again, it is time to guess what level of success the team will have.

But after a tepid preseason by Robert Griffin III and the offense; there is a lot to be concerned about. Was it just a case of growing pains with the starting offense unable to score a touchdown all preseason? Or, is there a real issue?

This week the boys discuss the quarterback and the offense. We can’t forget what appears to be an improved defense, or forget the fact the team has yet to play a single game so any pronouncements are premature.

Then there are the season predictions. Who will be the optimist this year?

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

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.

New Skinscast Minisode – Look what we found

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

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.

New Skinscast Episode – Free agency 2014

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

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.

Enjoy!
