Episode Date
Evaluating a hypothetical trade for Aaron Rodgers and interviewing Scott Turner about his new offensive personnel
00:32:34

Though the draft is over, there's still more to discuss about it, which is how this Washington Football Talk with JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey begins. JP opens up by tying up some loose ends, Pete brings you up to speed on the lone undrafted free agent the club signed, and then the trio looks at a hypothetical trade for Aaron Rodgers as well as the biggest winners and losers on Washington's roster as it relates to the draft. After that, they toss to their interview with Scott Turner, the team's offensive coordinator, to get his thoughts on everything from Dyami Brown to Ryan Fitzpatrick to reuniting with Curtis Samuel. If you like podcasts where Pete saves the show from veering into First Take territory and you already get some early analysis on who will and won't make the 2021 roster, then this is the episode for you.

DRAFT POD, DAY 3: Reacting to Washington's full 2021 Draft class and JP's 1-on-1 with Ron Rivera
01:05:30

This is the final pod of the draft. I'm too exhausted to type a funny summary. Just listen to this. You'll love it. -Pete

May 02, 2021
DRAFT POD, DAY 2: Analyzing Washington's newest tackle, DB and wideout — and explaining why there's no new QB
01:05:38

Well that was a hell of a Friday for the Washington Football Team! JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are back for their second draft podcast of 2021, and this one is all about Sam Cosmi, Benjamin St-Juste and Dyami Brown. The guys bring you up to speed on Ron Rivera's newest lineman, defensive back and wide receiver, and pick their favorite of the three selections. In the midst of that, you'll get JP's 1-on-1 with Cosmi, which is the sort of special access you're used to from this show. After those segments, the hosts explain why Washington didn't take a QB through Days 1 and 2, and then zip through a ton of other topics, including RG3's cheapshot on Kirk Cousins, another sign of Bruce Allen's incompetency and Pete's worrisome memory loss. If you like podcasts where Mitch quotes Macbeth and there's a follow-up debate about Rivera's wardrobe, then this is the episode for you.

May 01, 2021
THE JAMIN DAVIS POD: Everything you need to know about Washington's new LB, including an exclusive interview with him
00:48:37

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have the first of three Washington Football Talks for you over draft weekend, and it's focused mostly on first-round pick Jamin Davis. After giving their quick take on Davis' arrival, the guys toss to JP's 1-on-1 with him, where you get an excellent of sense of who he is right off the bat. Once that ends, the trio discusses Davis further, the other players Washington considered, how much the team pondered moving up for a QB and, yes, Aaron Rodgers. Mitch also gives an update on his Twitter-less life, which has a funny new twist. If you like podcasts where you get to hear from a brand new Burgundy and Gold defender moments after his dream came true, then this is the episode for you. Also, Pete's miserable with his cat again. Keep him in your thoughts.

2021 DRAFT PREVIEW: Making bold predictions about Washington's haul and looking at stars who could slide
00:53:58

A very energetic JP Finlay, a in-California Mitch Tischler and a regular Pete Hailey have their last pre-draft Washington Football Talk for you, and you'll come out of it ready for the NFL's marquee offseason event. First, JP leads a segment on bold predictions for Washington's upcoming haul. Then, JP brings up a few players, like Devonta Smith, whom he thinks could surprise people and slide to pick No. 19. After that, the guys run through a listener-submitted "All Ashburn Syndrome Team," which is very fun, and close things down with some shtick about Mitch's Twitter account and other shticky things. If you like podcasts where JP makes the most bougie complaint ever and Mitch's nephew identifies whom he'd like Washington to select, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 26, 2021
Catching up with the respected Steve Wyche, who analyzes Washington's potential draft moves and standing in the NFC East
00:42:48

JP Finlay and Pete Hailey open up this Washington Football Talk for you, and the pair mostly focuses on Alex Smith's new comments that are fairly harsh about his last season with the Burgundy and Gold. How much do they care? Then, JP and Pete each rant more about the name debacle and also give their one-week-away draft prediction for what happens with the franchise they so closely cover. Once the two hosts finish up, they toss to theirs and Mitch Tischler's interview with the very-respected NFL Network analyst Steve Wyche. During his time on the program, Wyche explains where he thinks Washington could try to move up to in order to draft a QB, how he thinks the club stacks up to the rest of their NFC East rivals and how Ron Rivera is changing the organization. If you like podcasts where Pete asks a very esteemed guest a question that makes JP and Mitch mad, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 22, 2021
Reacting to Alex Smith's Monday retirement and a draft-focused interview with NFL authority Dan Hellie
00:42:39

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey were planning to do a quick intro before getting to an interview in this Washington Football Talk — and then Alex Smith retired. So, the guys react to Smith's departure from the sport he's been involved with since 2005, and then they toss to their interview, which features the very knowledgable Dan Hellie. During his time on the show, Hellie analyzes Trey Lance's fit with the organization and ranks some of the second-tier QBs in the draft, and he also launches a compelling Kyle Allen discussion (who knew such a thing existed?). If you like podcasts where Pete gives a depressing update on his cat situation and Mitch goes on a mini-rant that leads to many bleeps, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 19, 2021
LIVE POD: Talking Washington's odd team name survey, Dan vs. Bruce, Trey Lance, Sammis Reyes and far more
01:27:40

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey, along with thousands of adoring fans, showed up at an Ourisman dealership in Alexandria for this LIVE PODCAST, which was a TON of fun. The hosts cover so, so much, including their frustration over Washington's name search, Dan Snyder's legal battle with Bruce Allen, trading up (or waiting?) for Trey Lance, draft targets beyond the first round and more. There's also lots of shtick, including an unbelievable tale from Pete about his cat being a nuisance. Then, once they say goodbye, you'll get Pete's detailed interview with Steve Hagen, who personally coached Washington's new tight end, Sammis Reyes, at the IMG Academy. If you like podcasts where a fan very nicely compliments Pete's haircut and JP drops a word that causes the entire Ourisman dealership to go silent, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 16, 2021
Examining where Washington's trade-up opportunities are in the draft and picking the team's top three positions of need
00:48:24

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey start off this Washington Football Talk by once more analyzing all the trade-up talk that's currently enveloping the Burgundy and Gold. That segment includes a review of Michael Lombardi's comments from last week regarding Trey Lance as well as an in-depth evaluation of which squads Washington could talk to about a deal/moving up. After looking at that topic from all necessary angles, the trio then each lists their top three positions of need for Washington, and Mitch surprisingly doesn't begin his list with an offensive lineman. Lastly, JP reviews his trip to Augusta for The Masters, for those shtick-loving listeners out there. If you like podcasts where Pete makes a comment that gets assailed by his co-hosts but then comes back strong with an appropriate analogy that is widely approved of and where JP name drops all of the stud QBs he saw in Augusta, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 12, 2021
Assessing the odds of Washington trading up for the fourth pick and interviewing the very cool William Jackson III
00:44:30

An in-the-car JP Finlay and an in-their-homes Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey got together for this Washington Football Talk, which begins with JP explaining the very cool reason he is in a motor vehicle. From there, the three dive deep into the idea of Washington trading up to snag Atlanta's fourth overall pick, which involves the hosts picking sides between Trey Lance and Justin Fields and deciding how likely such an act is. After that, you'll hear JP, Mitch and Pete's fun conversation with William Jackson III, who explains the difference between confidence and swagger and gives a lot of other great answers during the chat. Then, to close, the trio gets weirdly into discussing how they like to hold the steering wheel when driving. If you like podcasts where you get free Masters picks and you learn yet another way in which Mitch is irking Pete, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 08, 2021
THE RYAN FITZPATRICK INTERVIEW: Fitz joins to talk Chase Young, Scott Turner, the foods that mess up his beard and more
00:20:03

This Washington Football Talk contains no fluff and no filler, as you basically get dropped right into JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey's interview with the franchise's new quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick. The chat with Fitz is a really fun one, as it's filled with both serious topics and segments on his beard and how much his phone is blowing up these days. If you like podcasts where an already very likable QB becomes even more likable, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 05, 2021
What you need to know from Ron Rivera's post-free agency presser and an interview with Adam Humphries
00:27:20

Ron Rivera spoke to the media on Thursday, so of course JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to speak to you about Ron Rivera speaking to the media. So, they open this Washington Football Talk by discussing their biggest takeaways from the coach's press conference and also wonder what he didn't say. After covering that from top to bottom, they then toss to a really fun interview with Adam Humphries, where the trio asks the new receiver about what makes him such a quarterback-friendly target and also guesses how good he is at golf. If you like podcasts where Mitch gets offended over the idea that he sometimes fakes enthusiasm and where Pete's haircut is compared to Humphries' haircut, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 01, 2021
Reacting to the Adam Humphries signing and wondering how good Washington's 2021 offense will actually be
00:50:45

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey convened for this Sunday edition of Washington Football Talk, and they kick the show off by discussing the Adam Humphries signing. That then leads into a comparison between this current group of wideouts and the 2016 roster, which featured DeSean, Pierre and Jamison Crowder. After that, the guys also quickly talk about the signing of Darryl Roberts, the draft trades that went down last Friday and the fantasy baseball league they're doing together. If you like podcasts where Mitch and JP each provide updates on their dogs and the trio comes up with a tasty bet for their new fantasy venture, then this is the episode for you.

Mar 28, 2021
Updates on Dan Snyder's ownership and Washington's search for a team name, plus an interview with Jason Campbell
01:10:58

The Washington Football Talk crew is back, and this time, they aren't talking any on-field stuff. Instead, this installment begins with an update from JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey on Dan Snyder's ownership status, which saw a major development on Wednesday. The guys run through all of that news — and JP drops one hell of a theory — before they turn their attention to the franchise's hunt for its next name. Will that hunt actually result in a new moniker? The hosts don't all agree. Lastly, you'll hear JP, Mitch and Pete's chat with Jason Campbell, who gives his take on the Ryan Fitzpatrick addition and then gets dismayed at how little Pete knows about Auburn football. If you like podcasts where you learn about JP and Mitch's Boston Market go-tos back in the day and Pete's lack of political knowledge is once again exposed, then this is the episode for you.

Mar 25, 2021
EMERGENCY POD: Curtis Samuel is coming to Washington and the offense is about to get a lot more dangerous
00:37:14

Not one, not two, but three-straight EMERGENCY PODS have now occurred, as JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey gathered around yet again, this time to react to Washington landing Curtis Samuel. In this installment, the guys explain how Samuel will make the offense so much more difficult to defend, how he'll fit in among the other weapons and how his arrival caps off what's been a super week for the franchise. Also, at the end, they take some time to say bye to Washington legend and pod legend Nick Sundberg. If you like podcasts where Mitch has a spot-on comparison for Samuel but then later gets testy with JP over a stupid argument that only this show would care about, then this is the episode for you.

Mar 18, 2021
EMERGENCY POD: Washington makes a super-splashy defensive signing by nabbing William Jackson III
00:47:27

Another night, another EMERGENCY POD. This one is devoted to Washington's reported signing of corner William Jackson III, a move that JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey all roundly approve of. If you like podcasts where you get the most inaccurate analysis ever of where WFT is with their salary cap and Mitch comes up with a new term for the tampering period, then this is the episode for you.

Mar 17, 2021
EMERGENCY POD: Ryan Fitzpatrick is reportedly joining the Washington Football Team
00:43:14

Ryan Fitzpatrick reportedly agreed to terms with the Washington Football Team late Monday/early Tuesday. This is the EMERGENCY POD reacting to that news. Pete is too tired to write out any more in the summary. Go listen please.

Mar 16, 2021
FREE AGENCY PREVIEW: Will WFT sign a QB? Will they hand out a giant contract? And how much will they spend overall?
00:35:19

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to look ahead to one of the best weeks on the NFL calendar: Free agency. In this Washington Football Talk, the guys answer pressing free agency questions such as, "Will the team sign a QB?" "Will they hand out a contract that tops $80 million?" and "What under-the-radar name is worth keeping an eye on?" They also go through JP's Twitter to find a few more inquiries to kick around. If you like podcasts where Pete's chicken tenders get poor reviews and Mitch gets mad at JP for not knowing what a prism is, then this is the episode for you. And be sure to stick with us these next few months, because things are about to get real fun.

Mar 15, 2021
THE SCHERFF GOT TAGGED POD: Everything you need to know about what Washington did with their All-Pro guard
00:38:16

The primary topic for this Washington Football Talk is Brandon Scherff and his new franchise tag. Whether you're delighted by the news or upset by it, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to walk you through what it means for both the player and the organization. Is the $18 million that the Burgundy and Gold is set to pay Scherff prohibitive or just the price of doing business? What are the chances of a long-term agreement? And how much does Mitch love that an O-lineman is at the center of the show? You'll get all those answers and more, as well as some Dak Prescott analysis and a random Ronald Darby segment. If you like podcasts where Mitch and Pete discuss birds and JP zings Pete about being so coddled (for the 145th time), then this is the episode for you.

Mar 09, 2021
Covering all sorts of topics, from Washington's cap situation to Kyle Trask's fit to, yes, a Trent Williams reunion
00:42:00

Nothing too, too pressing has happened as of late with the Burgundy and Gold, so JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey used this edition of Washington Football Talk to run down a list of storylines that will no doubt interest you. To begin, the three look at the team's cap situation, as well as what other teams will have to do in order to be compliant with the cap, in a free agency lookahead. After that, the guys touch on Kyle Trask potentially making it to the club in the second round of the draft, Chris Cooley's thoughts on a possible Trent Williams reunion and Terry McLaurin's toughness. They then close with JP making one hell of an Ashburn Syndrome-y statement and a recap of the 20 Questions segment they did on JP's radio show. If you like podcasts where you learn about one host's feet and get some hurricane analogies, then this is the episode for you.

Mar 05, 2021
Reacting to (what's basically) the end of the Alex Smith era in Washington and recapping a truly epic poker weekend
00:49:57

The first half of this Washington Football Talk is centered on Alex Smith, who's expected to be released by the Burgundy and Gold soon. So, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey react to that news, do their best to grade the 2018 trade that brought Smith to the franchise and then assess how they're feeling about the QB room's future moving forward. Then, once the Smith stuff wraps, the trio recaps what was an unbelievable poker weekend for Mitch and JP, and especially JP. You're going to want to hear about the run he went on on Saturday night (and how Pete repeatedly got stonewalled by Rob Gronkowski). If you like podcasts where Pete's fear of the ocean is exposed and there's some random reminiscing on some of the guys' favorite road trips from the past few years, then this is the episode for you.

Mar 02, 2021
LIVE POD: Covering the latest on Alex Smith, Cam Newton and Russell Wilson, plus answering questions at Ourisman Fairfax
00:57:55

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey recorded this Washington Football Talk from Ourisman Fairfax of Toyota, which is just a lovely place to record a show and also buy some cars. During this installment, you'll hear the three of them go through the latest on Alex Smith's GQ comments, Washington's lack of interest in Cam Newton, what to make of Russell Wilson's dilemma and more. Then, they allow members of the massive crowd at the dealership to ask questions, which range from draft needs at pick No. 19 to Jeff Bezos' possible involvement with the franchise. If you like podcasts where Pete broaches the idea of buying not one but two cars and there is an excessive amount of timestamping, then this is the episode for you.

Feb 26, 2021
2021 QBX DRAFT POD: Trying to assemble the best three-man QB room by picking from a list of all the vets and rookies
00:48:41

This Washington Football Talk show mainly deals with the first-ever QBX Draft, an event that's both fun and chaotic. JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey welcome on fellow co-workers Ryan Homler and Ethan Cadeaux, and the five of them go through a three-round draft where they each try to come up with the best collection of signal callers possible but also stay within their budgets. The best part? Everyone is available to choose from, including superstars, random vets and draft picks. Once that wraps up, and JP Kiper grades each host's haul, the guys toss to yet another awesome interview featuring Brian Mitchell. This time, B-Mitch talks to Washington GM Martin Mayhew and the two reminisce about the massive impact Bobby Mitchell had on their lives and Mayhew's career in particular. If you like podcasts where JP, Mitch and Pete realize they've been mispronouncing both Ryan and Ethan's last names for quite some time and there's a weird Mike Vanderjagt side conversation, then this is the episode for you.

Feb 22, 2021
A real look at Marcus Mariota, a chat about Alex Smith's days being numbered and an interview from B-Mitch with Jason Wright
01:19:49

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are back again and they're here to rant about how much they hate computer passwords. That's true, too — but before they get to that, they begin with some more "Tesla talk" and, more importantly, a serious look at Marcus Mariota. The hosts weigh him versus Derek Carr and debate whether he'd be worth taking a flier on or not. Once they finish up that segment on the current Raider, JP brings up a story he wrote about Alex Smith and Kyle Allen, which leads into a chat about why they all feel that Smith's days in D.C. are numbered, though there's a disagreement on how many days remain for him with the franchise. Lastly, they finish up their portion of the show with a round of FUs, which includes the aforementioned password complaining as well as a few other issues you'll relate to. And to close, they toss to a really good interview that Brian Mitchell got with Washington team president Jason Wright, where Wright explains who and what shaped him into the person he is now and how he hopes to act as a role model for the Black community in the future. If you like podcasts where Mitch sings some "Frozen" and there's a touching moment between Pete and JP, then this is the episode for you.

Feb 18, 2021
A bunch of bold predictions about what'll happen this offseason for Washington and an interview with Taylor Heinicke
01:06:29

It's a holiday, but the Washington Football Talk podcast doesn't know what holidays are, so JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey got together on Zoom to record another edition of their show. To start, the guys react to Chris Polian's addition to the front office. After that, they each give three bold predictions about how Washington's offseason will unfold, ranging from what signings they'll make in free agency to which QB they'll take in the draft. And because they can't ever stick to script, they then keep giving bonus predictions on top of their original ones and weirdly end up debating whether they'll ever be back in a locker room again. Then, to close, they toss to their interview with Taylor Heinicke, who offers up insight on his mindset, his appreciation for Scott Turner and how he's waiting for Heineken to give him a call. If you like podcasts where JP yells at Mitch for fake enthusiasm and Pete debates whether he should buy a car, then this is the episode for you.

Feb 15, 2021
THE HEINICKE'S BACK POD: Reacting to the beloved QB's return and what it means for the position going forward
00:53:27

Washington made a move at quarterback today, and JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are contractually obligated (basically) to record a Washington Football Talk whenever that happens. So, the three hosts got together to react to Taylor Heinicke's extension with the Burgundy and Gold. During the show, you'll hear them explain what it means for Heinicke, Kyle Allen and Alex Smith, as well as other potential additions, before placing 100 chips on how the rest of Taylor's career will look. JP also elaborates on an important contract note. They also-also run through about 15 different food analogies/metaphors to describe and discuss the aspects of the team's situation under center. If you like podcasts where there's a random break to discuss a Wizards-Raptors bet and JP really develops his Bag of Tostitos Theory, then this is the episode for you.

Feb 11, 2021
Recapping the Super Bowl, discussing Sam Darnold's potential fit and interviewing Joe Theismann & Antonio Gibson
01:10:10

For those feeling sad that the NFL season is over — which should be all of you — this Washington Football Talk should help you out a bit. After JP Finlay updates Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey on how his new radio gig is going, the three of them decide that Washington fans shouldn't be too excited that their team hung with the now-Super Bowl champs on Wild Card Weekend and otherwise recap Bucs-Chiefs, which gives Mitch the opportunity to angrily rant on something that likely he only noticed and cares about. Once they move past the Super Bowl, the trio goes back-and-forth on Sam Darnold's potential fit in Washington and how much they'd give up to get him, a segment that leads to more QB analysis and names like Jimmy Garoppolo and Carson Wentz being tossed about. Lastly, they finalize the winner of their sad little betting pool before moving on to a pair of interviews they snagged last week with Joe Theismann and Antonio Gibson. Theismann's thoughts on Washington's hunt for a QB, and why he wouldn't go crazy to get Deshaun Watson, are compelling as usual while Gibson looking back on his rookie year (and one celebration he probably won't be doing anymore) is entertaining as well. If you like podcasts where Mitch rightly brings up the law of syllogism but wrongly loses his mind over a broadcast item that the world loves, then this is the episode for you.

Feb 08, 2021
THE MARTIN & MARTY POD: A rundown of everything the new execs said and JP's 1-on-1 with Ron Rivera about the additions
01:13:39

Wednesday was a big day for the Washington Football Team, which means it was a big day for the Washington Football Talk hosts. After Ron Rivera and the franchise introduced Martin Mayhew and Marty Hurney to the media, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey hopped on Zoom to break it all down. As they do, you'll get their thoughts on the executives' comments about QB, how they'll collaborate with Rivera and their overall impressions on Mayew and Hurney. Also, in the midst of all that, you'll hear JP's 1-on-1 with Rivera, where the coach explains how much more he'll be able to focus on coaching thanks to the new structure as well as how the two additions' roles will differ. Eventualllllllly, after some more back-and-forths between the trio about signal callers and how necessary it is that Washington finds its answer this offseason, they each give their Super Bowl picks for their very sad betting pool before things close out with Pete asking JP and Mitch how much they know about the Weeknd. If you like podcasts where Ron Rivera goes at JP repeatedly for wearing a tie to a Zoom presser and there's way too much time devoted to which hitter recorded the most strikeouts in MLB history, then this is the episode for you.

Feb 03, 2021
Washington missed out on landing its QB in Matt Stafford, so what do we make of that and what's next?
00:19:10

Matt Stafford is... not a Washington Football Teamer. So, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey gathered to quickly react to that trade that sent Stafford to LA and, again, not to DC. Where does the franchise go from here and is there any consolation to at least knowing they were somewhat in the race for the passer? Those discussions, and more, take place in this half bonus, half emergency installment. If you like podcasts where JP completely makes up a factoid about Babe Ruth and Pete's flaws as a boat captain are revealed, then this is the episode for you.

Jan 31, 2021
Coming up with our TOP offers for Deshaun Watson & Matt Stafford, and ID'ing QBs we aren't talking enough about
01:13:37

After some brief announcements, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey get right back into evaluating Washington's punting situation. Just kidding, Tress Way owns that spot. Of course, they truly get right back into evaluating Washington's QB situation now that Deshaun Watson is officially on the trade block. In light of that, JP, Mitch and Pete each present their BEST offers for Houston's star, and then do the same for Matt Stafford and the Lions. You can be the judge of which deals are doable and which are dumb. Once they complete that segment, they each identify a signal caller that they believe isn't being talked about enough and they wouldn't mind seeing end up in Burgundy and Gold. Those answers range from a very bland name to one extremely polarizing one. From there, they say goodbye and you get Washington Football Talk's interview with the franchise's new, full-time assistant running backs coach Jennifer King, who discusses her impressive journey to where she is today, and then, you'll hear a long chat JP had with Ron Rivera that goes in depth on Rivera's cancer battle. You'll surely appreciate both. If you like podcasts where you get a preview of JP's family ski trip, then this is the episode for you.

Jan 28, 2021
QBX MANIA: Deciding where Matt Stafford fits on the list of passers Washington could acquire this offseason
00:50:39

JP Finlay decided that this Washington Football Talk should be called the QBX MANIA edition, and for good reason. He, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey got together to talk about Matt Stafford's addition to the list of passers Washington could very well land, and at other portions of the show, they bring up names like Deshaun Watson, Aaron Rodgers and Tua Tagovailoa. As for Stafford, the hosts also dive in to what they'd give up to acquire the Lions star. Once the chatter about signal callers ends, JP, Mitch and Pete review what they saw over Conference Championship weekend as well as their awful gambling picks, a segment that includes JP making a maddening plea. Then, to close, they break out their 100 Chips and sprinkle them all over the various QB options the franchise could go for. If you like podcasts where three out-of-touch guys run through the pros and cons of various dating apps, then this is the episode for you.

Jan 25, 2021
Reacting to the arrivals of Martin Mayhew & Marty Hurney and going through our favorite QB options for Washington
00:43:53

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey begin this Washington Football Talk by analyzing the now-clearer front office situation, as Martin Mayhew is the GM and Marty Hurney is in the fold as well. During the opening portion, the hosts explain possible reasons for the shuffling of roles and cover other important takeaways from these two moves. Once that's done with, they turn their attention to QB — something they'll be doing a lot of in the coming months — and each explain what kind of passer they think Washington must add. There are a lot of disagreements (and a lot of comparing signal callers to cars) in that stretch, and even some chatter about if they'd deal Chase Young to land Deshaun Watson. Then, to close, they book their bets for the upcoming Championship games. If you like podcasts where Rihanna gets name-dropped in bizarre fashion and Mitch struggles to explain a meme and ends up totally whiffing, then this is the episode for you.

Jan 22, 2021
Giving our take on how Marty Hurney will fit in Washington's front office as well as an interview with John Riggins
00:48:55

While the Marty Hurney news wasn't official when this Washington Football Talk was recorded, all signs pointed to him becoming the new general manager of the club, so JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey convened to give their thoughts. As they cover the story from all angles, you'll hear JP try to calm doubters of the move down somewhat, a recap of Hurney's biggest transactions in Carolina and an overall reaction to the decision. There is also plenty of Kyle Smith mentions. Once they feel like they properly hit that topic, they proceed onward to quick segments on Curtis Samuel and Bruce Arians before transitioning into another round of FUs. And to close, you'll get their interview with the legendary John Riggins, who touches on Alex Smith's future and what he'd do under center in 2021. If you like podcasts where Pete does Kevin Malone and Jay Gruden impressions back-to-back and JP unleashes his fury about his family's new bench, then this is the episode for you.

Jan 19, 2021
Bringing you up to speed on Washington's GM search and touching on the Deshaun Watson trade rumors
00:57:29

The Washington Football Team's offseason has begun, but the Washington Football Talk podcast never takes a break. So, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here once more, and they begin by diving into the franchise's search for a GM. In that convo, JP also explains why he feels there's some Ashburn Syndrome with Kyle Smith. Once that wraps, the trio moves on to quarterback, wondering if Alex Smith will return or retire, how Taylor Heinicke fits into the equation and why, if at all possible, the team should be in on the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes. From there, Pete reviews how he was run over by Brian Mitchell recently (and then gets salty) and then JP gets in on the FU fun before the guys give out one pick for each of this weekend's playoff games. If you like podcasts where Pete makes a very basic revelation and the possibility of Reverse Ashburn Syndrome is discovered, then this is the episode for you.

POSTGAME POD: Taylor Heinicke plays out of his mind, but sadly, Washington's season comes to an end vs. Bucs
01:11:02

The end of the season is here, but damn, it was a memorable one. For the last time for a while, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are coming at you from the FedEx Field parking lot to break down a Washington game, this one their playoff loss to the Bucs. For many, it'll be known as the Taylor Heinicke Night, and that's where the hosts begin. What did they make of his performance and where does he fit going forward? That second question especially leads to some interesting discussions. After that, there's chatter about how the defense handled itself vs. Tom Brady, criticism about the number of drops and a brief look at the top three offseason priorities. And to close, JP, Mitch and Pete run through one final set of Over/Unders, 100 Chips and Game Balls and Goats before trying to put a bow on a wild campaign. If you like podcasts where Mitch tries to be Mr. Shtick instead of Pete and JP ends things with a magnificent monologue about roller coasters, then this is the episode for you. And thank you for following along all year. Don't worry: The momentum will still be real all offseason long.

Rodney Harrison and Ryan Kerrigan join to help preview Washington's first PLAYOFF GAME in years
00:57:49

Welcome to the first Washington Football Talk playoff preview installment in history. It feels good to be here. To begin, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey run through the team's current QB situation as well as the injuries that Antonio Gibson, Terry McLaurin, Brandon Scherff and Kendall Fuller are dealing with. Then, they toss to an excellent, fiery interview with Rodney Harrison, who outlines how the defense can get to his ex-teammate, Tom Brady, and reveals his very high opinion of Gibson. After that, you'll get JP's 1-on-1 with Ryan Kerrigan, who's a perfect person to chat with about what this Saturday means to the franchise. Once those two wrap, the three hosts return to go through Over/Unders, 100 Chips and their predictions, before they close with some FUs. If you like podcasts where Mitch's WiFi AND JP's WiFi battle it out for worst on the show and there's A POSTSEASON CONTEST TO EVALUATE, then this is the episode for you.

Jan 07, 2021
POSTGAME POD: THE WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM IS HEADING TO THE PLAYOFFS. THEY'RE NFC EAST CHAMPS
01:34:00

Was it pretty? Nope. Does it matter? Also nope. The Washington Football Team is playoff bound, and JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to celebrate with you. THE PLAYOFFS. The hosts discuss that achievement, praise the defense and reflect on how crazy this year has been. Yes, they also address Doug Pederson basically giving Ron Rivera's club the dub, but that's secondary to all the good vibes. Also in the show, you'll hear Mitch rant about Tom Brady's upcoming trip to Landover and Pete accidentally spill a hypothetical beer. And in the end — and you gotta work to get there — hopefully you'll realize how rare these kinds of things are. If you like podcasts when Washington's current rebuild gets compared to buying a beachfront property and JP just NAILS his opening, then this is the episode for you. (Also, at the end-end, JP interviews Chase Young. That interview was recorded before Week 17, but there's still plenty to digest from the star defensive end.)

Jan 04, 2021
How are Alex and Terry looking? And will Washington be division champions come Sunday night in Philly?
00:55:21

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey seriously hope this isn't their last preview installment of the season. To start it off, the guys go through the injury updates you care about most, while also touching on how the Eagles are looking healthwise before Sunday's meeting. From there, they run through their pregame segments, where Mitch goes nuts in 100 Chips, there's a lot of Antonio Gibson hype in Over/Unders, and everyone ends up predicting a victory. Yup. After those all wrap, there's time for some shtick, as Pete has JP and Mitch try to guess the movie he was watching before the mics turned on and then the trio hands out some FUs. If you like podcasts where JP is afraid that the heater beneath his feet could malfunction at any second and each host does their best Chase Young impression, then this is the episode for you.

EMERGENCY POD: Reacting to the news that Dwayne Haskins' time in Washington is officially, and suddenly, DONE
00:31:17

This summary won't take long. Dwayne Haskins got released on Monday and you want to get analysis on the move, why it was made and what happens next for him. That's precisely what this Emergency Pod does, so fire it up. (When that all wraps, you'll also get a 1-on-1 with Ron Rivera that was recorded BEFORE the release of Haskins but is still worthy of your time.) If you like podcasts where JP Finlay battles with some sunlight and he, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey all list their defining moment of Dwayne's career in Washington, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 28, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Dwayne Haskins completely flames out and Washington blows a major opportunity vs. Panthers
00:58:56

This could've been a division-winning edition of Washington Football Talk. Key word: could've. Instead, thanks to a very uninspiring outing from Dwayne Haskins and a few others, the Burgundy and Gold fell to the Panthers in Week 16, and JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have many thoughts about the loss. They, clearly, begin with Dwayne, and discuss if he was pulled at the right time, if he's now truly done in DC and what to make of his press conference drama. They then look ahead to Week 17 and wonder who the hell will be starting for this team in Philly. After more frustration, and then more frustration, the hosts go through Game Balls and Goats, Over/Unders and 100 Chips. And to close, you'll hear Chase Young's interview with NBC Sports Washington's postgame crew, which, as usual, is worth listening to. If you like podcasts where the Football Team is compared to a window and Pete gets furious with the birds who are pooping on his car, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 28, 2020
Dwayne's dumb decision: Reacting to the wild drama surrounding the QB (and, oh yeah, previewing the Panthers game!)
01:15:56

This Washington Football Talk begins with JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey discussing a topic they NEVER could've imagined: the team's starting QB being punished for partying mask-less with strippers. The trio describe their initial reaction to the Haskins news, run through other examples of Dwayne's immaturity coming to the forefront and wonder where the franchise goes from here. They also give their opinion on how Ron Rivera handled the situation, which includes thoughts on his testy Wednesday presser. Eventually, they're able to move on to Alex Smith's health (yep, that's important too!) before turning their attention to a POTENTIALLY-CLINCHING WIN this Sunday with 100 Chips, Over/Unders and more. Lastly, JP serves as the mediator in an issue involving Mitch and Pete before they toss to an interview with — get this — Maury Povich. As in, THE Maury. Make sure you get through all of the above topics and listen to this, because Maury, who's been a fan of Washington for decades, was incredible. If you like podcasts where Mitch somewhat quotes Mark Twain and Maury tells the guys he wants to golf with them, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 24, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington gets a reality check against the Seahawks and their winning streak is now over
00:58:03

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to break down Washington's loss to the Seahawks. What is their primary takeaway from the contest and are they coming away from it more encouraged or less encouraged about this team? From there, they do their best to evaluate Dwayne Haskins' performance, which was at times quite disappointing and at others somewhat promising. At some point, you'll also get an explanation from Mitch about those sweet camera shots that everyone was talking about. To close, it's time for Game Balls and Goats, Over/Unders and 100 Chips, and Mitch particularly enjoys the last two segments. If you like podcasts where JP very casually ruins the allure of Santa Claus (don't listen to this episode with your young children around) and Pete's intense gambling struggles are brought up, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 21, 2020
Bringing you up to speed on QB, discussing Seattle with a Seahawks insider and chatting with Peter Rosenberg
01:26:11

There's a starting QB mystery, and JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey dive into it to start this Washington Football Talk. After hearing from Ron Rivera, Scott Turner and Alex Smith on Wednesday, the three hosts each give their educated guess as to who'll start this weekend against the Seahawks. Well, JP sort of guesses and sort of doesn't. Then, they toss to JP's interview with NBC Sports Northwest's Joe Fann, a Seattle insider who's the ideal guest to talk to ahead of Sunday's major matchup. After that, JP, Mitch and Pete welcome on radio star Peter Rosenberg, who reps the Burgundy and Gold despite working in New York. While on, the very energetic Rosenberg gives his thoughts on perhaps bringing Sam Darnold to DC as well as how his opinion of Ron has changed in 2020. Lastly, your three regular hosts return to go through over/unders and 100 Chips, as well as another round of FUs. If you like podcasts where JP reveals that he had to take a bullet for another media member on Wednesday and Pete goes off because of a shipping catastrophe, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 17, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington's defense carries them to a win over the Niners and into FIRST PLACE once again
01:20:20

Any time a Washington Football Talk begins with a strong rant from JP Finlay about success, you know things are going right and that's precisely what happens on this one. Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey then join to reflect on everything from Washington's Week 14 win over the Niners, including the DOMINANT DEFENSE, Chase Freakin' Young, the QB drama and much, much more. They also look into the far future and wonder just how well Ron Rivera is setting this franchise up for many more victories. There's even more talking from there (this one is full of positive chatter, because winning rules) before the trio wraps up with their usual postgame stuff, where Pete really rakes it in. If you like podcasts where there are legit chants about wanting to face Tom Brady in the playoffs and so much praise for the defense, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 14, 2020
Analyzing whether Washington can keep their streak going vs. the 49ers, as well as chats about RB and Kyle Smith
01:13:14

While there isn't any hypothetical bourbon in this Washington Football Talk, there is plenty of real content. To begin, you'll get JP Finlay's interview with Ron Rivera that happened on Tuesday after the Pittsburgh dub. While that game is now in the past, hearing Ron review it is still very worth it. Then, JP brings on Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey to analyze Antonio Gibson's health/the running back situation, Washington's new QB, where Kyle Smith stands in the organization and if there's any worry about a letdown this weekend against the Niners. That leads the trio into their usual preview segments before they pass it off to JP's chat with NBC Sports Bay Area Insider Matt Maiocco, who updates you on what's happening with the San Fran, Trent Williams and Jordan Reed. Then, to close, there's another round of FUs. If you like podcasts where Mitch gets desperate in 100 Chips and JP overshares about his various fantasy teams, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 11, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington takes out the (previously) undefeated Steelers and they're officially ON. A. ROLL.
00:58:23

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and BRIAN MITCHELL are here to celebrate, talk about and celebrate some more after Washington's best victory in YEARS. Things begin with a fiery open from JP and they continue from there, as the four discuss how many players stepped up, praise Ron Rivera and discuss how HUGE of a victory this one really was. Eventually — like, eventually — they make it to their Game Balls and Goats, 100 Chips and What Makes You Smile segments, segments that also include discussions about the fresh white-on-white uniforms and some B-Mitch stories about a young Scott Turner. They also chatted about a bunch of other stuff, because winning is fun and it's fun to bask in! If you like podcasts where there's a crazy comparison that involves Cardi B and Scott Turner, and B-Mitch just completely disrespects how things work on the show, then this is the episode for you. LISTEN TO THIS ONE TWICE, GUYS, IT'S A LIT ONE.

Dec 08, 2020
Getting you ready for Monday in Pittsburgh along with two interviews featuring ex-Steeler Ike Taylor and safety Kamren Curl
01:02:32

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are anxiously waiting Washington's game in Pittsburgh just like you, and this edition of Washington Football Talk should help tide you over until the matchup gets here. To begin, the three hosts preview the Steelers tilt, running through 100 Chips and Over/Unders while discussing if the Burgundy and Gold can remain on their current hot streak. Once they wrap, the boys find the nearest closet for a very engaging interview with ex-Steeler Ike Taylor. The DB who played in Pittsburgh for more than a decade shares top-notch insight on how Washington can try to fool Big Ben and what makes that organization so great. Then, to close you'll get JP's one-on-one with Kamren Curl, where the safety talks about going from a 7th round pick to starting in a matter of months and having to win over his family members who are Cowboys fans. If you like podcasts where FUs make their triumphant return and Taylor tells an incredible story about listening to music while he played, then this is the episode for you.

Dec 03, 2020
Can Washington get three more wins this year? Plus, 1-on-1s with Ron Rivera and Sean Taylor's brother, Gabe
00:37:02

Well, well, well, with the calendar about to turn to December, Washington has a legit playoff sweat, which is largely the focus of this Washington Football Talk. First, you'll get JP Finlay's one-on-one with Ron Rivera, where the head coach reflects on how meaningful the Dallas win was before saying why he's not looking at the NFC East standings just yet. Once Rivera is done, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey hop on to evaluate Washington's final five contests and where Alex Smith fits in with this franchise long term. And lastly, you'll hear JP catch up with Gabe Taylor, Sean's younger brother. With the anniversary of Sean's death just recently happening, it's a very important interview to listen to. If you like podcasts where the guys give their ideal NFL bubble spots and Pete's is the weirdest of the three, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 30, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington celebrates Thanksgiving by STOMPING on the Cowboys in a blowout for the ages
01:00:31

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to give you a massive helping of the Washington Football Talk podcast after one of the best wins for the Burgundy and Gold in recent memory. OH, SORRY, ONE SEC, ANTONIO GIBSON JUST SCORED ANOTHER TD. OK, back to the summary. The guys recap everything from the Thanksgiving Thrashing, shouting out all the main heroes and smaller-name heroes who brought the goods to AT&T Stadium. They also go through the incredible play calling by Scott Turner, the calm leadership from Alex Smith and then run through their postgame segments that everyone knows and loves. OH, WAIT, DALLAS JUST TRIED TO DO SOMETHING ELSE STUPID AND IT FAILED. If you like podcasts where there is way too much singing and talk about hosting the playoffs in January, then this is the podcast for you. Soak this all up people, what a damn win.

Nov 27, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington handles the Bengals and sets up a huge Thanksgiving showdown in Dallas
00:54:49

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey prefer victory podcasts over losing podcasts, so they're happy to bring you this edition of Washington Football Talk. From the FedExField parking lot, the hosts recap the win over the Bengals, as they try to figure out how excited to be about it. They also discuss Joe Burrow's unfortunate injury, Chase Young's bounceback effort, Terry McLaurin doing Terry McLaurin things and more. To close, they hit their classic segments, where they hand out plenty of game balls, touch on JP's massive lead in 100 Chips and explain What Made Them Smile on Sunday. If you like podcasts where Mitch gets heated about Derek Jeter and Pete reveals how he saved JP's afternoon, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 23, 2020
Thoughts on left tackle, Alex Smith and Thomas Davis, as well as a Cam Sims interview and a Bengals preview
01:05:21

Hope you're ready for this one, Washington Football Talk listeners, because it's a doozy. Before getting into a bunch of quality discussions, JP Finlay begins by losing his bleeping mind over his Zoom situation in what can only be labeled as an explosion. Once he cools off (sort of), you'll hear his 1-on-1 with Ron Rivera from earlier in the week. Then, he, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey look at Washington's dicey left tackle situation, wonder what the perfect amount of attempts for Alex Smith is, go back and forth on why Thomas Davis isn't playing and give their thoughts on the team rolling with Dustin Hopkins for at least a little longer. Next, the trio goes through their 100 Chips and Over/Under segments as they turn their attention to the Bengals game, toss to a really, really fun interview they did with Cam Sims and close by giving their scouting report on the Wizards' first-round pick from Wednesday's NBA Draft. If you like podcasts where you learn about how polite Cam Sims is and Pete's latest presser struggles are documented, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 19, 2020
POSTGAME POD: This Washington Football Team is really frustrating and their loss to Detroit captures that perfectly
01:02:36

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey start off this Washington Football Talk podcast by coming up with one word to describe the team that's at the center of their show, and the words aren't positive. They shouldn't be, either, considering how down and up and DOWN they were in their game against the Lions. After that opening segment, they review other parts about Sunday's loss, including Alex Smith's day, Chase Young's back-breaking penalty, that bizarre second-and-2 play call and Dustin Hopkins' struggles. Once those wrap up, they run through their usual Game Balls and Goats, Over/Unders and 100 Chips to conclude. During that stretch, one host gets to punch another, which you'll hear. If you like podcasts where JP comes up with a promising roller coaster bit idea and then soon kills it and Mitch tells a random John Ross story in the final minute, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 16, 2020
WEEK 10 PREVIEW: Interviews with Morgan Moses and Chris Simms, then taking a look at Washington's trip to Detroit
01:21:32

This Washington Football Talk is gonna be quite informative and enjoyable for ya. To start, you'll get JP Finlay's 1-on-1 with Morgan Moses, where the O-lineman discusses how the franchise's vibe has changed under Ron Rivera and what it's like inhabiting Trent Williams' locker. Then, JP, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey catch up with Chris Simms, who has lots of thoughts on Dwayne Haskins as well as one QB prospect that he's already crazy about. Once those finish, you'll get the trio's live pod from the Ourisman dealership in Alexandria, where they're joined by new friend Martha, who's an encyclopedia of Burgundy and Gold knowledge. In that final piece of the show, the typical preview segments take place ahead of the Lions matchup, as well as some chatter about Steven Montez. If you like podcasts where Mitch tells a funny tale about an old English teacher and one beloved listener reveals a dream he had involving Mitch and JP, then this is the episode for you. And go order Famous Dave's, because we love them.

Nov 13, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington somehow loses to the Giants again — and somehow loses another QB, too
00:46:12

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to hopefully bring you a quality podcast about a not-so-quality football team. The three hosts begin this Washington Football Talk by admitting that they are all still infected with Ashburn Syndrome before reacting to yet another major QB injury. How many times will that happen to this organization? From there, they dive deeper into the Burgundy and Gold's latest disappointing loss, doing segments on how the defense didn't step up and whether rolling with Alex Smith over Dwayne Haskins is the right call for now. Eventually, they close with their usual hallmarks, including Game Balls and Goats, 100 Chips, Over/Unders and What Made You Smile. If you like podcasts where Mitch makes maybe the strangest noise in history and JP, Mitch and Pete have to battle through a weird smell in the parking lot, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 09, 2020
WEEK 9 PREVIEW: JP interviews Alex Smith and Dale Earnhardt Jr., then the guys preview Sunday's Giants matchup
00:56:25

This week's Washington Football Talk is a day late, but the wait is going to be worth it. Why? Oh, because JP Finlay got the chance to talk to Alex Smith for an extended amount of time AND also catch up with Dale Earnhardt Jr. NBD. First, you'll hear Smith reflect on the comeback he's made so far, talk about his new off-field cause and answer whether he wants to be the starter in 2021, in addition to discussing the NFC East race. After that, Earnhardt Jr. jumps on to give his thoughts on Dwayne Haskins and explain why he isn't necessarily all in on making the playoffs this year. Once those two stars are done, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey hop on to replace them (womp womp). Once JP, Mitch and Pete are reunited, they look ahead to this weekend's tilt with the Giants, hitting their usual preview segments. If you like podcasts where JP and Mitch are weirdly nice during the "F U" portion of the proceedings and Pete gets a bit strange in 100 chips, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 06, 2020
Previewing the NFL Trade Deadline and providing some encouraging stats for Washington's second half of 2020
00:58:08

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are ready for the second half of the season, which begins with this new Washington Football Talk. After briefly saying hello, the guys toss to JP's 1-on-1 with Ron Rivera, who goes in depth on Ryan Kerrigan's future and why he thinks his team is due for a "crescendo." Once that ends, the hosts return to hold a long discussion regarding the trade deadline, focusing on Ryan Kerrigan, Dwayne Haskins and Ryan Anderson. They quickly discuss Eric Reid as well before looking at four stats and deciding whether they're actually encouraging or fake encouraging for Washington's final nine games, and then they close by recapping the highlights of their golf trip. If you like podcasts where Ron Rivera gives JP swing tips and Mitch crashes and burns when trying to reference a nugget about the divisional playoff race, then this is the episode for you.

01:09:11

A bye week extravaganza kicks off with JP Finlay's exclusive interview with Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio.

Then the crew expands to five with ESPN's John Keim and the Richmond Times-Dispatch's Michael Phillips joining the expert panel to predict wins and losses for the second half of the season. Bullishness after Sunday's victory over Dallas comes into play for a few on the panel and there is more discussion about a potential NFC East title. If you like Pete zingers that fall flat and throwing a sprinkle on your favorite game, then this is the episode for you.

Oct 28, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington dismantles Dallas and, well, they’re somehow in the playoff conversation again
01:01:54

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have a victory to discuss again, finally! And it was a very simple one, too. From an undisclosed location at FedEx Field, the three hosts try to decide how much about Week 7 was because Washington was on point and how much about it was because Dallas is such a disaster. They also discuss Landon Collins’ reported season-ending injury and Jon Bostic’s hit on Andy Dalton before, yes, chatting about the team’s playoff chances. The second half of the proceedings is devoted to the usual segments, and to close, you’ll hear from Terry McLaurin and Cole Holcomb, who were both guests on NBC Sports Washington’s Postgame Live show. If you like podcasts where JP gives Mitch some hair advice and Pete gets yelled at for excessive paper crinkling, then this is the episode for you.

Oct 26, 2020
WEEK 7 PREVIEW: Dissecting what Ron said about his QBs, a chat with ESPN's Mina Kimes and a look at Dallas
01:07:45

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and their new producer, Jason Murphy, are here for one last preview before the bye week, and they start off this Washington Football Talk by getting right into an exchange Ron Rivera and Pete had during Rivera's Wednesday presser. What was said and why does it matter? You'll find out soon enough. Then, the guys go back and forth on whether Washington is positioned to take advantage of Dallas' struggling offense and STRUGGLING defense this Sunday before tossing to their interview with Mina Kimes. In that interview, the ESPN football analyst compares her beloved Seahawks to Washington to figure out what the latter needs to do like the former, expresses her confusion over the QB situation in DC and then tries to cheer up the hosts she's joining because they kept getting all emo. Then, to close, JP, Mitch and Pete return to go through their 100 Chips, Over/Unders and F U segments. If you like podcasts where Mitch reveals he's getting a Cam Sims tickle and Mina helps come up with the ideal next name for Washington, then this is the episode for you.

Oct 22, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington played to win but ultimately lost a real heartbreaker in New York
01:04:29

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are fed up just like you, and they're here to talk about how fed up they are. They get right into it, too, wondering if Ron Rivera made the right call by going for two at the end of Washington's game versus the Giants, and then, they each choose a word to describe their overall mood. None of the words are positive. More conversation follows that, including a recap of Kyle Allen's day. In the second half of their show, the guys go through their usual segments, probably giving out too many Game Balls and Hat Tips in the process, and close things out with a quick thought on a tough anniversary. If you like podcasts where Mitch already beings to argue for the team to take a tackle in next year's draft and the hosts' moods matches yours, then this is the episode for you.

Oct 19, 2020
WEEK 6 PREVIEW: QB is still a mess, the O-line could be changing and Washington BADLY needs a win in New York
00:43:09

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are doing this preview pod for their second time, but it's your first time hearing it because the other one, uh, disappeared. So, listen as the guys, again, run through their thoughts on Dwayne Haskins' illness, Kyle Allen's aggressiveness and Alex Smith's current situation. After they look under center, Mitch takes you through some possible offensive line tinkering and Pete does the same for safety. Then, to close, the hosts run through a very simple Over/Under segment and a very complicated 100 Chips segment. If you like podcasts where JP labels Mitch the Fake Bet Police and Pete learns about a crucial scene in Varsity Blues, then this is the episode for you.

Oct 16, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Alex Smith makes his miraculous return in an otherwise DREADFUL loss to the Rams
00:43:24

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are torn: Should they be more amazed that Alex Smith's comeback took place at FedEx Field in Week 5 or more horrified by everything else that occurred with the Washington Football Team vs. the Rams? That's the opening topic they tackle in this latest postgame show. They also run through if Ron Rivera's proclamation that he's going to stick with Kyle Allen (as long as he's healthy) is the right call and, oh yeah, touch on the Dwayne Haskins trade rumors! Michael Phillips, who's always a welcome presence, appears halfway through to contribute his thoughts on everything. After that, they hit their typical postgame segments, which are all low on enthusiasm and high on criticism. And to close, they explain a few of Pete's latest gaffes with a few dairy-related items. If you like podcasts where JP begins things with a supremely obscure reference and Mitch just totally flubs a well-known cliche, then this is the episode for you.

Oct 11, 2020
EMERGENCY POD: Dwayne Haskins is benched(!), Kyle Allen is starting(!) and Alex Smith is now backing Allen up(!)
00:58:47

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have plenty to talk about. So much to talk about. The MOST to talk about. And, of course, it begins at Washington's quarterback spot. Kyle Allen is now the guy, Alex Smith is behind him and Dwayne Haskins is at the bottom of the depth chart. What did JP, Mitch and Pete make of the move, is Haskins' career in Washington over, what does this say about Ron Rivera and, overall, is it the right call? They also debate who'll have the most starts in 2020 between that QB trio, which is a very interesting topic. After that, they look ahead to Sunday's game against the Rams, wondering how many yards Allen will throw for and if he can help Washington to a much-needed win. And at the end, they run through their F U Segment (as well as a neat variation on it) and review their very fun round of golf together. If you like podcasts where Mitch can't stop talking about pigs and there's a discussion about who has the worst typos, then this is the episode for you. AIRHORN.

Oct 07, 2020
POSTGAME POD: Washington falls to 1-3, but was this loss another disappointment or merely expected?
00:44:24

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey gather around a (new, sturdier) table for this postgame episode from outside of FedEx Field, and they begin by making a noise that they feels best describes Washington's Week 4 loss to the Ravens. None of the noises are that inspiring. After that, they run through their evaluations of Dwayne Haskins — was this a step forward, a step backward or no step at all? — and reflect on Ron Rivera's hardest game yet. They then go through their Over/Unders, 100 Chips and What Made You Smile segments before taking a look around the garbage NFC East and closing with some shtick. If you like podcasts where JP describes the Ravens' performance by coming up with a brunch analogy and Pete discusses his painful first experience with a splinter, then this is the episode for you.

Oct 05, 2020
WEEK 4 PREVIEW: Gov. Larry Hogan joins for a football/betting-heavy interview, then JP, Mitch and Pete talk Washington-Baltimore
01:00:58

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have quite the show for you here today. To begin, you'll get JP's 1-on-1 with Governor of Maryland Larry Hogan. Yes, a governor joined this podcast. JP and Gov.

After that, the hosts return, but this time they're at MGM National Harbor, where they look ahead to the Cleveland matchup and go through their over/under and 100 Chips segments. They also make fun of one of their coworkers (and it's not Pete).

Kyle Brandt, the other half of that controversial Kirk Cousins interview, reacts to Kirk's thoughts (and covers other topics, too)
00:28:56

The Washington Football Talk pod prides itself on being timely, and few shows in our history will be as timely as this. Kirk Cousins is making major news with his opinion on the coronavirus and mask-wearing, and the person he delivered those opinions to, Kyle Brandt, was kind enough to join this operation to explain his interview with the QB. In Brandt's mind, people aren't paying attention to their entire back-and-forth. Allow him to expand. While Brandt's on, he also takes time to explain what he thinks the best-case season is for Washington and absolutely nails the franchise's ice cream flavor equivalent. In all, he was wildly entertaining. If you like podcasts where the guest has the exact same gambling preferences as the hosts, then this is the episode for you.

Then, JP sits down the the trademark squatter you've heard so much about for a very entertaining chat. And lastly, Pete and Mitch interview Mike Florio to get his take on what's going on in Washington. If you like pods where Mitch and JP are both distracted by a tennis match happening at the park where this thing was recorded and JP nearly loses his mind on an interview subject, then this is the episode for you.

Howl to the Red Wolves? Fred Smoot makes his (very compelling) case for his favorite name idea
01:00:19

After a brief intro from JP Finlay, you'll get audio from JP, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey's energetic and hilarious interview with the energetic and hilarious Fred Smoot (which originally aired on their "Redskins Talk & Friends" Facebook Live show).

Once that wraps, you'll get JP's one-on-one interview with Randy Vataha, who's an expert on the buying and selling of stakes in sports teams. Vataha answers all of JP's questions (he had a lot) and you'll come away from that chat with a better understanding of the ownership situation in DC.

00:49:28

The hurricane winds are blowing, as JP Finlay says at the start of this Redskins Talk, and those winds could result in the franchise changing its name. That topic, of course, is all that JP, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey really focus on for this pod, which comes after a weekend of constant breaking news related to the Redskins.

LIVE OURISMAN POD: Debating topics like whom McLaurin's sidekick will be and which position group is most concerning
00:48:02

This Redskins Talk was recorded at Ourisman Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Alexandria, which made JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey quite happy. You wouldn't be able to tell, though, with the way JP and Mitch begin things (by getting into a bit of a tiff). Once they stop bickering, however, a fun edition of Redskins Talk ensues, where the trio cover all sorts of things, including: 1) Whom Terry McLaurin's sidekick at receiver will be, 2) Which way the Redskins would go at QB in 2021 *if* Dwayne Haskins has problems, 3) Which position group is the most concerning and 4) JP's unfortunate bee sting and lawn problems. If you like podcasts where you hear what JP, Mitch and Pete's jobs would be if they weren't covering the Redskins and you also hear about Mitch getting lost before this was recorded, then this is the episode for you.

Should the Redskins retire more numbers, and if so, whose? Plus, a debate on how many sacks the defense will get
00:42:41

For this Redskins Talk, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey returned to their park and, after a few important announcements and promotions, discussed whether the team should retire more numbers, and which players have numbers that are worth retiring. They all have varying opinions on the matter, which made for intriguing back-and-forths. Eventually, the hosts then looked ahead to 2020 and wondered how many sacks the revamped defense could rack up. Is finishing first in the NFL in that category a wild thought or actually possible? If you like podcasts where you get some sprinkled-in analysis on a random pickup basketball game that was happening by the guys' picnic table and the word "shoelace" is ruined for you forever, then this is the episode for you.

Sifting through our mailbag to answer questions on Scherff and cap space, and having a chat about Rivera choosing the Redskins
00:39:17

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey haven't opened their mailbag in a while (read: months), so in this Redskins Talk, the guys decided to fix that and answer questions they hadn't gotten to yet. The segments starts out with some random inquiries and spam, but once things get moving, some interesting discussions follow. Among those discussions is the idea of moving Brandon Scherff to left tackle and what Washington can do with all their cap space. Eventually, JP poses a question of his own: Why did Ron Rivera choose the Burgundy and Gold instead of the handful of other jobs that he could've taken? The trio cover that before finishing things off with some — surprise — golf content. If you like podcasts where Mitch describes the new artwork on his walls and JP commends Pete for being able to read simple words, then this is the episode for you.

00:37:25

For the first time in months/years/decades, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey were in the same physical location for a recording of Redskins Talk, and this one bounces around between a lot of defense-focused conversations (as well as some largely un-focused conversations, too). After catching up, the guys wonder if Daron Payne is the most talented D-lineman on the team, then look at the franchise potentially trading Ryan Anderson. After that, they wonder how much of a difference the new defensive staff will make in 2020 before closing with rapid-fire analysis on all of Washington's upcoming position battles that will take place this summer. If you like podcasts where Mitch has a verbal slip-up that make JP and Pete lose it, and podcasts where Pete's haircut and JP's skin get analyzed (too?) closely, then this is the episode for you.

Chris Simms explains why Dwayne Haskins is so low in his QB rankings and what Haskins must do to climb upwards
00:53:11

This is a really fun Redskins Talk, and it kicks off with an interview with NBC Sports' Chris Simms. In that interview, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey ask Simms why he put Dwayne Haskins so low (39th out of 40th, to be precise) in his annual QB rankings. The analyst explains how he arrived to that conclusion, whether he'd want Dwayne, Kyle Allen or Cam Newton for 2020 and even gives a superb breakdown of the second-year pro's mechanics. In all, it's a very enlightening segment and you'll learn a lot from it. Once Simms heads out, JP, Mitch and Pete return to recap this week's Zoom calls with Haskins and Ron Rivera, both of which were very impressive, and then close by catching up on Pete the Property Manager's recent exploits. If you like podcasts where JP nearly unravels before your eyes/ears and there's some talk about the guys returning to the casino, then this is the episode for you.

JP, Mitch and Pete compare their best-to-worst rankings of the Redskins' position groups
00:42:18

Before getting into their individual rankings of the Redskins' position groups, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey begin this Redskins Talk with a few smaller items, such as chatting about JP's mileage of late, the hotel points they're all going to lose out on now that training camp in Richmond isn't happening and their new, special Facebook Live show that debuts this week, which you must tune in for. After all that, they then run through all 10 of the Burgundy and Gold's offensive and defensive position groups and rank those 10 spots from best to worst. The top of their lists all look similar, but after that, there's some parsing and disagreeing. Quarterback, receiver and cornerback were three of the more contentious ones up for debate. Then, to close, JP gives an important update on the "Who'll get married first, Mitch or Pete?" discussion. If you like podcasts where JP is especially wound up and Pete gets yelled at for thinking Ronald Darby may be an OK player, then this is the episode for you.

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey welcome Martin on first to get her thoughts on what's happening in our country after the George Floyd murder and explain how she thinks people should move forward from the tragedy to ensure the world really does become better from it. After that segment, the three hosts go around the horn asking Martin for her take on the Redskins, from why she thinks Dwayne Haskins will be graded unfairly this year to what qualifies as a successful 2020 in Washington. Once she says goodbye, JP, Mitch and Pete come back to wrap things up. If you like podcasts where JP's listening gets compared to that of an elementary schooler, then this is the episode for you.

In their long chat, meant to act as a virtual Memorial Day cookout, the two players and three hosts cover some very good football topics, including what they thought of Ron Rivera's first major meeting, and plenty of non-football topics, some of which got off the rails quick.

First, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey explain how the Trent Williams saga finally concluded, and in doing so, have discussions on what the trade shows about the franchise, what to expect from Saahdiq Charles and the multiple ways in which fans should still be grateful for Trent, even after this messy last year. Eventually, the guys are able to move on to what Washington did on Day 3 of the draft and the draft as a whole, holding segments on their favorite picks as well as the ones they feel like may not deliver. Then, to close out their portion, they — along with producer Tim Shovers and NBC Sports Washington legend Gary Carter — identify their top moments from the past weekend, in which they all give very different answers. Carter, by the way, also talks a lot in the earlier portions of the ep, even though he wasn't supposed to. Once your hosts depart, you'll hear a Thomas Davis interview from Thursday (48:18), a chat that came before the Chase Young pick but one that is still worth revisiting.

But first, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey give their take on Washington's newest addition, Memphis playmaker Antonio Gibson. The guys explain why he could be a perfect fit with the Burgundy and Gold, look at some of the wild stats he put up in school and also wonder whom he may overtake on the current roster.

Lastly, Terry McLaurin and OSU coach Ryan Day (32:22) join to touch on Chase Young and Dwayne Haskins, two important people they know a lot about. And to close, the trio returns to discuss how messy the Williams Saga is and how they think it'll end (42:23).

After they go back and forth on Young's arrival, you'll get a specially-made supercut of clips from guys who know the defender well — from his old coach to analysts and others — and who all believe he's got what it takes to succeed (12:45). Get ready to get hyped up. That leads in to a really fun interview the guys had with Landon Collins (18:42), who was actually on with them when the Young pick came through (you'll enjoy his reaction). Then, the trio catches up with Young's college D-line coach, Larry Johnson (25:04), who drops a lot of useful information about the ex-Buckeye. Eventually, though, the fun has to pause for a moment, as JP, Mitch and Pete go through how Thursday was a setback in the Burgundy and Gold's pursuit to trade Trent Williams (36:35).

Then, they toss to JP's one-on-one with Magic guard Markelle Fultz (17:39), as the NBAer explains his strong relationship with Chase Young.

If you like podcasts that include lots of strange analysis on Pete's hair as well as JP and Mitch yelling about whether a Vikings lineman is on a cheap contract or not, then this is the episode for you.

Next, they wonder how DeAngelo Hall could fit into the Redskins' front office, which is something he's interested in. Finally, their last segment deals with Josh Norman's new reality as a bench player. The hosts then toss to JP's 1-on-2 with Tress Way and Nick Sundberg (35:57), where the two reflect on how they've become such recognizable players and what a Pro Bowl appearance would mean. And to close, you'll get the Terry McLaurin postgame interview (46:51) from the Packers loss, which is worth listening to because he's the best. If you like podcasts where JP goes on a rant about being power-less and Pete creeps Keim out with sexy jean talk, then this is the episode for you.

That means they cover Derrius Guice's enormous day, Montez Sweat's best effort as a pro and the team as a whole rebounding after a discouraging start.

Then, they move on to a discussion about whether a much-awaited breakout game is coming for the rookie QB this Sunday against the Panthers.

POSTGAME POD: Recapping a thrilling win over the Lions while also explaining concerns about Dwayne Haskins
00:54:11

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are feeling mixed emotions in this Redskins Talk. To begin, they start off in a celebratory mood, as they enjoy the Redskins’ first home win in 13 months, a victory that featured excellent play from young receivers and a defense that came up clutch. Quickly, though, they transition from the "Era of Good Feelings" into more of an analytical approach, and have a long discussion about Dwayne Haskins. In that segment, they cover his accuracy problems as well as some maturity concerns, as they wonder whether they feel more or less encouraged about him following today. There’s a ton to unpack about the rookie, so pay attention to all of it. They then move onto JP’s report that Bill Callahan “ripped into” the Redskins the night before the game before closing with Game Balls & Goats and Over/Unders.

Then, they provide an update on Adrian Peterson‘s health before getting into two stories Pete wrote this week, one about judging Dwayne Haskins and another about young players who may see more snaps soon. After, they toss to JP’s chat with Derrius Guice (23:57), who is as energetic and engaging as ever, before they wrap things up by interviewing ex-Lions receiver Herman Moore (38:50) in a call that starts with a preview of Sunday’s matchup before covering all sorts of other topics.

Why was the O-line so quiet? Those questions and more are answered in that segment. Then, you’ll get JP’s interview with Bill Callahan, where JP asks the coach for his thoughts on the rookie QB’s development on top of plenty of other things you’re surely wondering about. Lastly, because Washington isn’t providing any real victory podcasts these days, you’ll get a replay of an old one after a win over the Eagles from 2016, where the team was better and the conversation was actually fun. If you like podcasts where JP, Pete and Keim all get a little emo at once and you get a helping of Rich Tandler to make your Monday better, then this is the episode for you.

POSTGAME POD: Dwayne Haskins takes a step back vs. the Jets while the Redskins continue to bottom out
00:43:16

In this one, which comes after the miserable loss to the Jets, the guys grade Dwayne Haskins, wonder how the defense can be so helpless and generally react to all of the bad football they’re witnessing these days. They also wonder if Bill Callahan has lost the locker room already in addition to going through their Game Balls & Goats and Over/Under segments. If you like podcasts where the trio delivers a strong golf analogy to describe Dwayne’s play and JP and Pete get super angry at Mitch for not really growing a mustache, then this is the episode for you.

To open, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey analyze where Dwayne Haskins is at going into his home debut before launching into a giant argument about whether the passer must throw for more than 200 yards on Sunday for the game to be a success. After that long, intense segment ends, you get JP's interview with Adam Rank (31:20), the NFL Network analyst who predicted Washington would finish the year 2-14.

Explaining the improvements in Dwayne Haskins and looking at why the Redskins will finally score a TD vs. the Jets

The opening portion of it deals with Dwayne Haskins, who had his first presser as starting QB on Wednesday. The hosts give you all you need to know from that presser and also have a broader talk about the ways in which Haskins seems more comfortable than he ever has. During that, though, a yelling match breaks out about expectations for Dwayne, so be ready. Then, there's a chat about Colin Kaepernick and why he doesn't fit in with Washington's plans. To wrap, Pete reads through an article he wrote that features 10 reasons the team will finally score a touchdown when they face the Jets, and JP and Mitch react to those reasons. If you like podcasts where the existence of quicksand is debated and something really, really, really cool happens at the end that makes JP sort of tear up, then this is the episode for you.

Then, they toss to JP’s 1-on-1 with Bill Callahan, and a highlight of that chat is an insightful story Bill shares about Dwayne’s preparedness. If you like podcasts that include a drawn out but effective shopping metaphor and a Supreme Court reference, then this is the episode for you.

Nov 11, 2019
Chad Dukes and Barstool Nate, two diehard Redskins fans, explain what they're still rooting for this year
00:35:33

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey welcome on two of the more passionate Redskins fans you'll find in media, Chad Dukes and Barstool Nate, for this edition of Redskins Talk. First, Dukes calls in, and during his time, he explains why it's so hard to root for Washington to lose even if that may be best for them long-term, runs through his best- and worst-case head coaching moves and also lays out why he wouldn't *hate* it if the team kept Bill Callahan in charge. Then, it's Nate's turn, and he also gets a chance to say what he's rooting for before talking about the lack of hope he's been feeling for quite some time in a segment many will be able to relate to. If you like podcasts where both guests are just as invested as you are and there's also some airplane seating discussion, then this is the episode for you.

00:44:03

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and John Keim got together for a long, all-over-the-place and fun Redskins Talk. To start, the four reflect on JP's report that Bill Callahan was given full control on roster decisions and why that may not be such a big deal. Then, they launch into a big Dwayne Haskins decision. What progress did he show vs. Buffalo, where can he go from here and why is the team not just naming him the starter already? Next, they briefly touch on Cam Newton rumors before JP throws out a wild draft scenario involving Washington potentially taking another QB this coming April. Lastly, a Redskins Talk staple returns: The ranking of everyone's bye week activities. Mitch is doing some incredibly fun stuff, while Keim... isn't. If you like podcasts where three out of the four voices are wearing their sexy sweats and there's some very divergent guesses on Mitch's future golf scores, then this is the episode for you.

To begin, they walk you through Williams' reporting to the organization and what it means for him and the team. The hosts also explain why this has been such a mess and how the franchise has to realize how badly they botched it (even though they may choose not to). Eventually, they move on to discuss why no trades happened involving other guys, such as Josh Norman, Ryan Kerrigan and Adrian Peterson. Basically, if you're looking for a Redskins-Bills preview, head elsewhere. If you like podcasts where there's a random segment on liquor prices and Pete addresses his recent Internet adventures, then this is the podcast for you.

00:43:52

They also chat about the defense and the fact that Washington is sitting at a horrific 1-7.

Eventually, they address this week's Trent Williams trade rumors before predicting whether or not the lineman will be dealt before the NFL's deadline.

No. Is this team still very flawed? Yes. But they won, and they haven't won in forever, so let's all be in happy moods. From Terry McLaurin and Adrian Peterson's banner days to Bill Callahan's influence to Case Keenum's very average performance, the hosts cover it all. They also give out tons of Game Balls, discuss Mike Tomlin for a bit and even check on the NFC East standings.

Case Keenum missed walkthrough Wednesday, so what does that mean for him, Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy?
00:35:48

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have an Urgency Pod edition of Redskins Talk, because Case Keenum is in a walking boot and missed walkthrough on Wednesday. This makes the quarterback position very interesting, because if he misses Sunday, the Redskins will have to decide between starting Dwayne Haskins or Colt McCoy. Or, he could play Sunday and then the team will have to decide who his backup is. Overall, it's a very fluid situation, and the three hosts talk about it on their own before also getting input from John Keim, Michael Phillips and Steve Whyno. Eventually, each give their opinion on who SHOULD start if Case can't, and who WILL start if Case can't. To close, they focus on another injury-riddled group: the offensive line. Brandon Scherff and Chase Roullier are dinged up, so how alarming is that? If you like podcasts where Mitch presents a somewhat good, somewhat bizarre Nationals-Redskins theory and there is a TON of QB drama, then this is the episode for you.

00:47:24

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey all tried to keep their sanity in this Redskins Talk, and it was incredibly hard considering what happened at FedEx Field on Monday night. The guys start things off with some depressing quotes that JP found on the Internet and then get right to it, assailing the team's arrogance in their offensive schemes, Greg Manusky's defense and the ugly running game especially in the fourth quarter. Next, they try to figure out what should and will happen when it comes to making a switch at quarterback, head coach and defensive coordinator. It feels like some major moves could be coming. Eventually, they go through Game Balls and Goats, where they get even angrier. To close, they try to open up some fortune cookies to find some hope for the future, and not even that goes well. If you like podcasts where the hosts are just as furious as you are and everyone's on the verge of melting down at any given second, then this is the episode for you.

Then, they break out the imaginary poker chips when discussing Trent Williams' future, trying to figure out if he'll come back in October, November or never, or if he'll maybe get traded. Next, they ask whether Monday night's game against Chicago is a "must-win," which leads to a pretty giant fight when one host doesn't fully commit to it being one. Eventually, they quickly touch on Daniel Jones becoming the Giants starter and how it relates to Dwayne Haskins and give an update on the survivor pool. And finally, you'll get JP's 1-on-1 interview with Cole Holcomb, a rookie who's on fire to start and who has quite the connection to Bears QB Mitch Trubisky. If you like podcasts where the guys come up with a new motto and also passive aggressively get mad at Pete (and aggressive aggressively get mad at Mitch) then this is the episode for you.

Jay Gruden goes 1-on-1 to explain how he's keeping the Redskins together, plus JP's postgame chat with Adrian Peterson
00:18:59

This Redskins Talk begins with JP Finlay's exclusive Monday interview with Jay Gruden, and to start, JP asks the coach how he plans on keeping Washington together following their 0-2 start. JP also gets Gruden to open up on his thoughts about the team's conservative defensive game plan against Dallas as well as explain some pregame comments he made about Adrian Peterson's running style. Once Gruden's done, you'll hear JP's postgame chat with Peterson (12:15), who reflects on reaching yet another milestone but also on the team's disappointing start to the year. Lastly, to try and cheer you up, Pete's bit with Cowboys fans is tacked on, where he asks them questions about their "favorite team" and ends up exposing how little they know. If you like podcasts where you hear Gruden go in-depth on the defense you expect much more out of and also hear a Cowboys fan talk about how Mitch Tischler needs more time to develop on their roster, then this is the episode for you.

WEEK 2 POSTGAME POD: The Redskins defense looks completely lost again vs. Dallas as the team falls to a worrisome 0-2
00:45:30

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are already running out of words and it's only mid-September, but regardless, they're here to bring you yet another postgame podcast following a disappointing loss. Things get rowdy early, as the guys wonder what exactly is happening to this defense and whether Greg Manusky is the right man for this job. That leads into some more general analysis and anger about how this season has started and how the things that were supposed to be strengths aren't actually strengths. Eventually, they read off all of the ugly stats they can find just like they did in Week 1 before wondering if Manusky is coaching himself out of his role. Game Balls and Goats follow, which is heavy on Goats (duh) and then they recap their over/unders. Lastly, they address the listeners about something important. If you like podcasts where JP breaks out his "This Season Is Going To (Expletive) Flow Chart" and you get some random discussion about pets, then this is the episode for you.

Some of those are more encouraging than others, so listen to them all. Next, they revisit the Trent Williams holdout. There was some thought he'd be back by now, but he still isn't. So, is this thing going to extend way into the season? Once that wraps, they toss to JP's exclusive 1-on-1 interview with Adrian Peterson, who touches on everything from his relationship with Jay Gruden to whether he thinks Trent will ever return. It's an interesting chat with a guy who's in a very interesting spot. If you like podcasts where JP likes Pete's 'Closing Time' remix but hates Pete and Mitch singing 'Happy Birthday' to him, then this is the episode for you.

00:52:12

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here for their first postgame podcast of the season, and man, they have a lot to sort through. The guys get right to it, dropping a Charles Dickens reference and then looking back on what was such a promising first half and disappointing second half. What the hell happened? Eventually, they play a game in which they read off really depressing stats, which certainly won't cheer you up but does a good job explaining just how different the first and second 30 minutes were. After that, they dive in to the decision to keep Adrian Peterson inactive and also grade Case Keenum's debut. Lastly, they go through Game Balls and Goats, which leads to discussions about Terry McLaurin, Jay Gruden and the decision to let DeSean Jackson go a few years back, and also reveal the results of Over/Unders.

In it, the guys debate how many starts Dwayne Haskins will make, how many yards and TDs Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson will put up, how many sacks Ryan Kerrigan will have and more. Everyone's all over the place, and many of these predictions will look foolish in four months, but there's still plenty of solid info and back-and-forths to take in.

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey get this one going by updating you on Jordan Reed returning to the practice field and what that means for his Eagles availability.

He also explains why he isn't bothered by the low expectations surrounding the team and answers a question on where he'll draw confidence from in 2019. Once Sundberg bounces (and takes some Fun Dip with him), JP, Mitch and Pete run through JP's theories of what would eventually cause Trent Williams to return. There's five of them, and they range from money to health to simply missing the sport. Lastly, you'll hear JP's 1-on-1 interview with Donald Penn (41:25), which is a really insightful discussion with a very important player.

00:32:01

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey were hanging in Mitch's car for this Redskins Talk and even got going a little bit before JP spotted Nick Sundberg in the parking lot and invited him in to be the fourth host. Luckily, Sundberg was down and hopped in the MitchMobile to be another voice. Once he settles in, JP asks the long snapper why Washington fans should be excited for the 2019 season, which Sundberg thoughtfully answers. He also gives his take on how good Derrius Guice can be and what he makes of Jonathan Allen's new facemask. Then, the four put a new twist on the "One Thing" segment (16:31), each listing one thing they want to see in Thursday's third preseason game vs. the Falcons. In that chat, you'll get notes on Case Keenum and Montez Sweat. Sundberg heads out at this point, allowing JP, Mitch and Pete to run through some over/unders as well as a Trent Williams debate that pits JP on one side and Mitch on the other.

That leads into a chat about Cam Sims, and whether he deserves to be and can be a starting NFL wideout. Lastly, they run through "One Thing," and give observations about Jon Bostic and Cole Holcomb.

The trio also goes back and forth on how the QBs looked as well as looking at how this roster could shape up at linebacker, where JP is beginning to notice a possible conundrum. Lastly, you'll hear JP's 1-on-1 with Josh Norman (32:45), who's pretty thrilled about how the secondary is shaping up in 2019.

00:29:59

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey were so, so ready to talk all about how great the offense looked on Sunday, but right as the Richmond session wrapped up, another Trent Williams report dropped. So, the three hosts begin this Redskins Talk by breaking that down, stating what was reported and assessing whether this makes them feel any worse about the situation. Mitch also has an intriguing theory about this new Williams nugget. Once they cover that, then they move on to the field, analyzing Dwayne Haskins' A-plus performance as well as the offense bouncing back as a whole. Things wrap up with "One Thing," where you'll hear about Robert Davis.

After JP fights through some chair adversity early, the four have long, winding discussion about Washington's passers, starting with Dwayne Haskins. Troth gives you super detailed analysis on what Haskins is going through as a rookie and why being an NFL quarterback is so difficult, so be ready to learn a lot from him. He also explains Case Keenum's strengths and gives his answer for who he'd start as of now, and it might just surprise you. Eventually, JP steers things toward Donald Penn and what kind of solution he could provide the offense. You also get a PODCAST PARTY ANNOUNCEMENT. If you like podcasts where Redskins QBs are compared to cars (and other vehicles, too) and Mitch briefly ranks his favorite letters, then this is the episode for you.

00:41:58

You've been waiting for your daily Richmond pods, and this is your first one featuring an in-depth practice report, so let's get to it. JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are joined by Yahoo senior NFL writer Kimberley Martin, and the four have a lot of fun giving you the scoop on the Redskins' opening practice. To start, they get Kim's thoughts on Trent Williams, which eventually leads to a strong point by JP on the entire matter. Then, they dissect the beginning of the QB battle (15:16), explaining the splitting of reps and informing you how Haskins, McCoy and Keenum all looked. Next, they analyze the day's standouts and finish with their "One Thing" segment, which features thoughts on Morgan Moses and Josh Harvey Clemons, among others. What comes next is JP's fun 1-on-1 with Landon Collins (31:20), where the safety talks about the season's expectations and takes a nice jab at his old franchise. If you like podcasts where Pete delivers maybe his best Jay Gruden impression and JP starts a "Free Feet" movement, then this is the episode for you.

2019 Camp, Day 1: The key takeaways from Jay Gruden's opening presser, including thoughts on Trent Williams' absence
00:35:19

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are BACK in Richmond and are very fired up about it. After reflecting on the start of another camp, the guys get right down to it, as they react to what Jay Gruden was asked and what he said in his first podium session. In doing so, they assess what was talked about in terms of Trent Williams not being here, plus Mason Foster's release and the impending QB battle. At some point, Brian Mitchell inserts himself by politely (just kidding) taking Pete's mic as well as his chair. The four then do their initial edition of "One Thing" before wrapping things up by discussing their very first official podcast wedding invite. If you like podcasts where Mitch is more bullish than normal (like, way more bullish) and B-Mitch puts Pete on the PUP list, then this is the episode for you.

Evaluating Kevin O'Connell as a potential head coach and a complete preview of 2019 training camp in Richmond
00:29:00

To start, JP and Pete ask Phillips about his article on Kevin O'Connell, in which he asks whether KOC is going to be the Redskins' next head coach. Are the Sean McVay comparisons fair, and what goes into being the leader in Washington? All that, and more, is covered. Then, the guys turn toward Richmond, as Phillips delivers yet another terrific preview of what's to come at training camp. You'll learn about scooters, buses, restaurants and advice for taking in the action, as the trio give their tips and favorite parts about the whole experience. If you like podcasts where Pete considers doing menial chores for cash and Phillips delivers a profound line about coaching the Redskins, then this is the episode for you.

Early Preview of Panthers/Skins + Look at 2020 Draft
00:43:51

Loaded episode as JP & Pete first talk to Darin Gantt of Pro Football Talk who lives in Charlotte and then Jordan Reid from The Draft Network (not the TE from Florida).

The first thing Gantt is asked is for his national view of the Redskins, which is always a valuable thing to get from someone as plugged in as him. In that discussion, you'll hear JP lay out his theory about Washington's fan base, which Gantt supports. You'll also get Gantt's take on why Jay Gruden is a "really good" coach, which Gruden supporters and detractors should both take in. Lastly, since Gantt has lots of Panthers connections, you'll receive an update on Cam Newton's health, which matters to Washington since they travel to Carolina this year.

Then if you like NFL Draft talk, then Reid is going to be your guy. In his discussion with the hosts, he breaks down the biggest needs facing the Redskins in 2020 and also gives names that could fill those needs. He then zooms in on the wide receivers who'll be coming out next April, and as a group, it's LOADED. Before he goes, Reid also provides his take on Dwayne Haskins and Bryce Love. If you like podcasts where there's a weird amount of spelling shtick and JP and Pete laugh over a word they should be more mature about, then this is the episode for you.

You'll also hear Perry give an early preview of the Pats roster and learn about one of the many things that sets them apart from other teams such as the Redskins.

They then ask Rabinowitz about Terry McLaurin, and the answer there will have Redskins fans feeling very good about the wideout. If you like podcasts where Pete abandons the college he went to and you get to learn more about your franchise's potential answer under center, then this is the episode for you.

Remember that analyst who predicted a 2-14 Redskins season? Well, we got him on the phone to talk about that
00:41:11

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey start this Redskins Talk by one last time telling you about Friday's Pod Party at Dudley's in Virginia. Then, they toss to JP and Mitch's lengthy and fun interview with Adam Rank, the NFL Network analyst who predicted Washington would go 2-14. In their discussion, Rank explains the rationale behind his prediction, and goes back and forth with the hosts about how likely it is. Rank's a hilarious guest and makes for a tremendous interview, so be sure to listen to it from start to finish. If you like podcasts where Mitch gets compared to a well-known cartoon movie character, then this is the episode for you.

Determining who or what should be responsible for deciding whether Dwayne Haskins starts right away
00:54:22

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and Redskins Talk's buddy John Keim squadded up for this new edition of your go-to Burgundy and Gold podcast. First, the hosts talk about Friday's Podcast Party, providing info on when the giveaways will happen. Then, they jump into football, and today revolves around Dwayne Haskins. The guys react to Doug Williams saying that Jay Gruden, the front office and Haskins' performance will all factor into whether the rookie wins the starting job and try to decide what should matter most in this situation. In their reactions, they bounce around to a ton of related topics, from whether the franchise will use what they learned from RG3's time here to how the staff should handle the preseason to how Washington's difficult opening schedule applies (or doesn't apply) to the choice. That discussion dominates this Redskins Talk, but near the end, you'll also get cold tub stories from Keim and a back-and-forth about who'll be the stars of training camp. If you like podcasts where Keim's phone cuts out at precisely the wrong time and Mitch can't resist being weird with his percentages, then this is the episode for you.

Trying to figure out how the 2019 Redskins will score and an interview with a Lions reporter about Marvin Jones
00:34:09

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have recovered from a weekend of Ls to give you another Redskins Talk. To begin, the three reveal one more ENORMOUS prize that'll be given away at Friday's Podcast Party, which is going to be fantastic and you should absolutely come to it (Dudley's at 7 pm). Then, JP poses an intriguing question - How the heck is this team going to score in 2019? The guys kick that around for a while before tossing to an interview with Dave Birkett, who covers the Lions for Detroit Free Press. Birkett is brought in to discuss the bizarre, random Twitter rumors about the Redskins trading for Marvin Jones. While those were started out of nowhere, JP and Mitch do ask Dave what Jones' situation is and how much he'd cost to acquire. They also compare how long each franchise has gone without playoff wins, which is a dark conversation. If you like podcasts where there's open honesty about Redskins Talk's disappointing weekend at the Emmys and Hanna the intern is brought on to answer questions about how excited she is about her first pod party, then this is the episode for you.

Is the analyst who picked the Redskins to go 2-14 totally wrong? Also, running through the options with Trent Williams
00:47:50

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey convened inside of JP's car for this Redskins Talk to ensure they wouldn't have to bounce around to seven different locations, which allowed them to get nice and settled in for a lot of good chats. To begin, they react to NFL Network's Adam Rank's projection of the Redskins' 2019 season. He has them finishing at 2-14, which the hosts just don't agree with. So, what is the team's actual bottom and what would it take for them to fall there? That's what they go over. Once that wraps, they then cycle through JP's four scenarios that he sees the Redskins and Trent Williams could experience (21:36). All three hosts overwhelmingly agree on the most likely, but they also don't rule out a secondary one. Lastly, they explain why the Eagles' choice to close the public out of most of their training camp is a discouraging one. If you like podcasts where the beer sponsor for the upcoming party (JUNE 28TH, BE THERE) is announced and Mitch combines two real words into one fake one, then this is the episode for you.

Comparing Trent Williams' situation to Julio Jones' from last year, plus reacting to JP's latest 53-man roster projection
01:00:47

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here for a fun and informative edition of Redskins Talk. To begin, the guys do some brief peanut butter and jelly-related shtick before tossing to an interview with Atlanta radio personality Mike Conti. Conti is brought on because of how familiar he is with Julio Jones' contract issues with the Falcons that began last offseason and are carrying into this one, and as it turns out, Jones' situation really resembles Trent Williams' in a lot of ways. The guys get the scoop from Conti on whether Jones' problems were a distraction and wonder whether the solution to Jones' problems could also solve the disagreement between Williams and the 'Skins. After Conti says goodbye, the three hosts then go through JP's latest 53-man roster projection, breaking down who he thinks will make the squad as of now. How many running backs, who will fill out the offensive line and what's going on at corner? All of those questions will be answered in this discussion. Also, as all of this is going on, the guys are constantly being bounced out of their recording spaces, so sorry about that. If you like podcasts where Pete gets credit for doing the simplest of tasks and there's some chatter about some new pod shirts, then this is the episode for you.

During the proceedings, you'll also hear a fun soundbite from Josh Norman. Lastly, JP makes a crucial announcement, letting you all know the date, time and location of the next Pod Party. If you like podcasts where Mitch is very critical of JP's WHATTUP EVERYBODY and you hear about Pete's numerous musical botches, then this is the episode for you.

Minicamp recap, Day 2: The Trent Williams story takes a turn and is now even more serious
00:56:08

Unfortunately, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey's Wednesday MyTeams stream was again largely focused on Trent Williams as opposed to what actually happened at Redskins minicamp, and that Williams-heavy discussion is now here as a podcast. The three hosts give you the latest on Williams' situation and then each rate how much this changes their level of concern, how much faith they have that it'll eventually be resolved and debate how much of a distraction it is. You'll also hear clips from Jay Gruden and Adrian Peterson, as they weigh in on the matter. The three do make sure to touch on other topics as well when they can, from Case Keenum's continued improvement to a very impressive Terry McLaurin touchdown. If you like podcasts where there's a lot of entertaining seesaw content and JP hints at a possible podcast party location, then this is the episode for you.

00:55:43

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey went on the MyTeams app to recap the first day of the Redskins' 2019 mandatory minicamp, and that broadcast is now here for you as a Tuesday podcast. The majority of it is dedicated to Trent Williams' reported holdout, which could be a major storyline for the rest of this offseason. The guys look at the situation from all angles, including why Williams has all of the leverage, what kind of trade — if any — makes sense for the team and how coaches and players reacted to the left tackle's decision. They do eventually cover some other things, though, from Case Keenum's continued improvement to Quinton Dunbar's return. And near the end, JP makes a very critical announcement, so stick around for that. If you like podcasts where Pete walks through his very intricate vegetable-making process and JP gives a discouraging update on his recent sickness, then this is the episode for you.

The Tandler Birthday Pod: Catching up with his wife, Andi, and remembering our guy Rich
00:46:36

This is one of the more special Redskins Talks ever recorded, so get ready. JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey, Ajay Atayee, John Keim and Tarik El-Bashir all went out to the Tandler house to catch up with his wife, Andi, and record this episode to celebrate Rich's birthday.

Once they all got settled, they basically turned on the recording and just let it all rip. From tremendous stories about Andi finding out that Rich was drinking on the road (after promising her he wasn't) to making fun of his devotion to gadgets and just recounting what made him so great, every second of this one is worth listening to. If you like podcasts where you hear about Tandler's boxers and Andi gets some surprise news, then this is the episode for you. Happy birthday, RT. We miss you.

00:56:00

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey traded in the Ashburn sun for the Bethesda studios for this Thursday MyTeams stream, which is now available to you as a podcast. Before football things really get going, JP and Pete have to sort out an issue that has JP very, very upset and Pete playing defense. Once that settles down, the guys talk about Jay Gruden's job security; is he absolutely gone if the playoffs don't happen? Then, they toss to their second strong interview with Rob Ryan (9:56), and chat with the ILB coach about all of his players, how he feels post-Reuben Foster and what he thinks about the very experienced coaching staff. When that finishes, JP makes an interesting comparison between the 'Skins and the Nationals, which leads into a bigger look at whether people are expecting too much out of the 2019 defense. Eventually, you'll also hear soundbites from Jonathan Allen and Landon Collins before things wrap up with some Ereck Flowers-related shtick. If you like podcasts where the hosts discover a podcast mole and Mitch gets vindicated left and right, then this is the episode for you.

Once that wraps, they welcome on Santana Moss, and get Moss to talk all things 'Skins wideouts as well as Haskins, too. Who is Moss most focused among Washington's targets and which rookie receiver does he think will make a bigger early impact? The next guest, Newy Scruggs, provides an update on the Cowboys, from what kind of money they'll be looking to pay Dak Prescott to how Zeke Elliott's off-field hiccups affect his image in the franchise. Lastly, the trio returns to your favorite segment — reading through Pete's financial statements, which are predictably in shambles after a holiday weekend. If you like podcasts where Santana Moss gives solid analysis on Paul Richardson and Pete asks for a birthday present four months ahead of his birthday, then this is the episode for you.

ESPN's Matthew Berry talks his Redskins fandom and explains why he's so fired up about Dwayne Haskins
00:35:52

Every guest we get on Redskins Talk is an important one, but here's one of the biggest to date: ESPN's Matthew Berry, who has been as crucial to the growth of fantasy football as anyone on the planet. However, JP Finlay didn't invite Berry on to talk fantasy; instead, JP and Matthew discuss strictly Redskins-related matters, all of which you'll enjoy. Why is Berry a 'Skins fan in the first place? Where does he fall when it comes to supporting Jay Gruden? You'll get those answers, plus a TON of nuggets on Dwayne Haskins, including some behind-the-scenes interactions Berry witnessed firsthand which he feels really show that Haskins is a leader and worth getting excited about. If you like podcasts where Berry directly tells younger fans why they need to stay with the Burgundy and Gold and where Berry lists a handful of reasons why the franchise's new quarterback could be the real answer under center, then this is the episode for you.

00:55:32

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey all threw on their blazers for this Redskins Talk MyTeams stream, which is now available to you as a podcast.

Be sure to catch that part of the segment. Once Halsell hangs up, JP and Mitch get really mad at Pete for disrespecting The Chappelle Show. If you like podcasts where a major light bulb goes off for JP and you learn about each hosts' tennis skills, then this is the episode for you.

00:51:52

Sadly, most of their early discussion revolves around Reuben Foster, as they detail what happened to the linebacker, what other members of the team said about it and how it affects the ‘Skins moving forward if it’s as serious as it looked.

Lastly, they run through the list of guys who weren’t at practice and tell you how concerned you should be. If you like podcasts where Pete’s finances continue to decline and Mitch takes his offensive lineman love too far, then this is the episode for you.

All of it is high-quality analysis and it, as usual, is mixed in with plenty of hilarious Smoot-isms.

Ross is an editor and radio host for Entertainment Weekly who also loves him some 'Skins, making him an ideal guest to chat all things Burgundy and Gold with. After JP confesses something to Ross as well as his fellow hosts, the four dive into all sorts of topics, including Dwayne Haskins' ceiling, whether the offensive line is a low-key but major concern and an interesting hypothetical involving Haskins and Josh Rosen. You'll also hear Ross pile on Pete and use the phrase "beer bong of medicine" during the back-and-forth. After Ross hangs up, JP tells a quick and embarrassing work story and then the trio brings up a bizarre Instagram debate that dominated @redskinstalkpod earlier this week. If you like podcasts where JP, Mitch and Pete are ranked as "Survivor" contestants and you learn more about Girl JP and Girl Mitch, then this is the episode for you

Rookie minicamp pod: Here are our early impressions of Haskins, Sweat and all the other new Redskins
00:35:04

There is a LOT of good stuff in this new Redskins Talk, so prepare yourself. First, JP Finlay sets the scene while at a family wedding, telling you what's ahead in this episode and also teasing a few fun things coming up for you as well. Then, he tosses to Mitch TIschler and Pete Hailey, who were out at rookie minicamp along with Ben Standig, Brian McNally and Ajay Atayee. From their beloved picnic table, those five break down what they saw from Dwayne Haskins and also give their takeaways on tons of other rookies as well. What jumped out about the new QB and how much excitement is there around him? You'll hear that analysis, plus lots of good insight on everyone from Kelvin Harmon to Wes Martin and even to Vince Papale's son. It's so fun to be talking football again and you'll enjoy that segment as much as the hosts did. Then, to wrap, you'll hear an interview with Kyshoen Jarrett that first aired on "Redskins 100," as JP, Pete and Julie Donaldson get to chat with the up-and-coming coach on his promotion and his life. If you like podcasts where the "How many C's on that thick?" scale makes an appearance and Mitch gets supremely giddy about an undrafted O-lineman, then this is the episode for you.

Looking at the Redskins' injury issues — are they bad luck or preventable? — and discussing the possibility of 'Hard Knocks'
00:43:46

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and Richmond Bureau Chief Michael Phillips join together for this Redskins Talk, one that covers plenty of crucial topics. At the start, though, the guys get organized, both figuratively by listing off some prizes and milestones those prizes will be given away after, and literally, because JP is trying to get his life together. Then, JP lets Phillips get involved in the LG vs. WR debate from the last 'Skins Talk, a debate Pete isn't budging from despite everyone saying he should. Next, they each list their rookie to watch, since minicamp is this weekend. After that, Phillips goes in-depth on a very important and good article he wrote recently, one that tries to get to the bottom of the Redskins' injury problems. Are they bad luck and fluky, or something that's preventable? Is there even an answer? Lastly, they address the possibility of Washington being on "Hard Knocks," something a lot of fans have been asking about. If you like podcasts where you hear a bit too much about Pete being sweaty and Mitch gets way too hyped about the Bears' kicking competition, then this is the episode for you.

May 08, 2019
Listen to JP, Mitch and Pete's 'Redskins 100' debut together, plus get their extended debate about concerns over LG & WR
00:44:14

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey got the chance to be on Monday's "Redskins 100" show for the first time ever, so after a brief intro from JP, you'll get the entirety of that show in podcast form. Included in that: Analysis on this summer's upcoming QB battle (who's going to start Week 1?) and a discussion about which spot is weakest on the roster now. That second discussion gets very heated, as JP and Mitch take one side and Pete takes the other. So, once the TV show portion of this episode wraps up, the hosts return to continue the debate. Make sure to listen all the way through to hear what the issue is and how, eventually, it feels like there's some resolution. Keyword: Some. After that, JP tells a very good story involving getting pulled over that has a miracle ending. If you like podcasts where Pete makes fun of Mitch being a TV rookie (much to Mitch and JP's dismay) and Mitch weirdly keeps interrupting JP's story, then this is the episode for you.

The Nick Sundberg pod: The long snapper jumps on to cover it ALL, from the importance of QB leadership to how NFL coin tosses work
00:53:45

JP Finlay and Pete Hailey are joined by very special guest Nick Sundberg for the entirety of this Redskins Talk, and after a botched intro by the two regular hosts, all three cover every topic imaginable. Here's a list of what you'll hear the guys discuss: The way an NFL coin toss works, the process for voting on team captains, how much belief there was when Alex Smith was healthy in 2018, a badass Aaron Rodgers story, the advice he has for Dwayne Haskins, his thoughts on the 'Skins' new special teams coach, his go-to Pandora station, his evaluation of Washington's draft, how national perception of the franchise isn't exactly fair and his Loads of Love charity. Mitch Tischler also gets cold-called and joins for a brief segment at the end. If you like podcasts where Pete gets excited because Sundberg has some of the same interests as him and JP and Nick bond over their Tupperware takes, then this is the episode for you.

May 02, 2019
Giving early guesses at how much Dwayne Haskins plays and assessing JP's way-too-early 53-man roster projection
01:04:32

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler (who's out of his submarine from last ep) and Pete Hailey are coming at you from an undisclosed location for a really terrific Redskins Talk. To begin, the guys briefly thank the listeners for what's been a very hot streak as of late before looking at some early odds related to the 'Skins. The most interesting among them? The over/under set for Dwayne Haskins' 2019 starts. Once that wraps, along with a brief segment on JP's newfound gray hair, the hosts transition into looking at JP's way-too-early 53-man roster projection. How many QBs do they keep, who makes the cut at receiver, what's the deal up front and where is this roster basically already set? All of those topics are covered in this entertaining discussion that covers lots of side topics, too. Among those side topics — trying to predict which wideout will lead the team in catches and wondering why the Redskins haven't looked more into Tre Boston. That's about 50 minutes of football stuff total, so you should be satisfied, because then comes the shtick. You'll get a sampling of standout reviews before the three call Ajay Atayee to preview their Wednesday golf match. Ajay claims he can shoot lower than a 120 despite having never played 18 holes before, so he gets grilled on that. If you like podcasts where Mitch's shoes get roasted and JP describes one player as someone who "bathes in moxie," then this is the episode for you.

Chad Dukes and Joe Theismann join to put a cap on a praiseworthy Redskins draft class
00:56:13

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and Ben Standig are here for one more look back on the 2019 draft, one that is awfully fun to look back on. At the beginning of this Redskins Talk, the guys explain what makes this crop of players so promising. Then, Chad Dukes joins to give his take and answers questions on how he wants the 'Skins to handle Dwayne Haskins and why Washington deserves even more credit than they're getting, including the much-maligned front office. He also talks about beer and steak, which is quality too. Next up is Joe Theismann, who you may be familiar with. Theismann gives tons of good insight on Haskins' future, and also reveals his plan for Haskins potentially wearing No. 7. The back end of the pod is devoted to the listeners, who helped contribute to an unreal week of coverage, and the opening of a giant box filled with incredible goods that was sent to JP, Mitch and Pete. If you like podcasts where you get to bask in the glory of a bunch of talented new players and Mitch stands strong in the face of top button criticism, then this is the episode for you.

2019 DRAFT RECAP: Getting to know the 10 newest Redskins, a class that as of now looks fantastic
01:06:11

The 2019 NFL Draft is over, and JP Finlay, Pete Hailey and Mitch Tischler are here to give you their wrap-up from what looks like an incredibly productive weekend for the Redskins. The three hosts are hanging on two respective porches, and to start, they run through Saturday's picks then give their overall impressions of the class as a whole. Then, they go through every pick, from the team's last to the first, and give their thoughts on each player. How does Jimmy Moreland fit into the secondary, what does Mitch think of the O-linemen and what does everyone make of the Bryce Love pick? All that analysis, and PLENTY more, can be found in this segment. Next, everyone identifies their GUY that they're most pumped to see in the Burgundy and Gold this season, before looking at spots that the 'Skins didn't address via the draft. Lastly, JP explains why the narrative that Washington is dysfunctional when it comes to this part of the offseason needs to be updated before they close out the proceedings with an old song that Pete of course doesn't get. If you like podcasts where Mitch gets irrationally mad at Pete for trying to bring up a fun fact and a golf tee disrupts JP's points at multiple portions, then this is the episode for you. 

Apr 28, 2019
Breaking down what you need to know about Terry McLaurin, plus how the Redskins have a successful Saturday
00:42:58

The Redskins only landed one player on Friday night but that player matters and so, too, did their trade, so JP Finlay and Pete Hailey are here to tell you all you need to know after the second and third round of the NFL Draft. To start, the guys set the scene, since they recorded this in JP's lovely basement, then get right down to reacting to Terry McLaurin's arrival. What do they like about the pick, where will he contribute most and what's their final grade of the selection? You'll hear all of that and more. Then, the two analyze the trade Washington made on Friday, explaining to you why the move made sense and how it sets them up for a productive Saturday. Next, they each come up with a question for Dwayne Haskins and Montez Sweat, since JP will be talking to them shortly. All of that is really solid football chatter, and it's all worth listening to. Following that is some fantastic shtick, which starts with JP opening some bourbon, much to the disappointment of Pete. Things then flow into a breakdown of the guys' new nap room, something JP pioneered and Pete loved, too, but also something that led to a very strange interaction. Lastly, the guys talk about the various places they'd have their draft parties if they were talented prospects. If you like podcasts where you get a very detailed description of JP's basement and Pete struggles mightily with drinking like a man, then this is the episode for you.

FRIDAY DRAFT STREAM: Grading the Redskins' first round and looking ahead to what they need to accomplish in the second
00:56:03

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler, Pete Hailey and mega-smart special guest Trevor Matich are here to recap the Redskins' first night of the NFL Draft and also evaluate what the franchise must do on Day 2. First, they each give their grades of the Dwayne Haskins and Montez Sweat selections, and while there are some tiny things to nitpick, they're all largely thrilled. In those conversations, you'll hear Matich explain why Sweat will be "vastly" better than Preston Smith and also what he thinks Haskins must improve on to make it in the league. After, they turn their attention to Friday, as each host identifies the most important positions to address and names that could work at those third round slots (or perhaps in the second if a trade presents itself). If you like podcasts where Trevor compliments Pete's ability to drop anchor and Mitch is in heaven with all the linemen talk, then this is the episode for you.

00:53:36

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey were on the MyTeams app on Wednesday for their first draft stream, and its now available to you as a Redskins Talk podcast ep. To start, the three hosts go deep on QBs, discussing potential trade-ups Washington could make, whether Dwayne Haskins is the answer and if Daniel Jones would be as disastrous as many fans think. They then have Kevin Sheehan on (14:46), and Sheehan gives strong insight on the main predicament that's facing the Burgundy and Gold in this year's draft as well as why making a big move up would be a "massive mistake." Eric Bickel of the Junkies hops on next (27:39), and he explains why he feels a move that creates buzz is necessary as well as why he'd be cool with DK Metcalf at pick No. 15. Finally, Barstool Nate gets in on the action (45:10), ranking the passers he prefers as well before doing some tremendous Capitals shtick. If you like podcasts where JP comes up with a smooth golf analogy to describe Daniel Jones and Pete gets a very fitting Game of Thrones nickname, then this is the episode for you.

You'll hear about 'em all, from Kyler to Dwayne to Drew to Jones to Grier to Stidham and Finley, too. In addition, Simms compares Josh Rosen to the prospects coming out this time around, because Rosen could be QBX as well.

That music was played during highlights and b-roll in the original broadcast)

Then, they zoom out to give some broader takes, looking at what could be a very difficult stretch to begin with and the Kirk Cousins matchup.

00:22:06

Getting the background on Josh Rosen's personality and talking to Maryland's speedy RB and future pro Ty Johnson
00:30:51

Here's another fun Redskins Talk that's divided into two excellent halves. The first half features JP Finlay and Pete Hailey, as well as Katherine Fitzgerald, who covers the Cardinals out in Arizona. While on the phone, Fitzgerald provides strong insight into both Josh Rosen the QB and Josh Rosen the person. What are his strengths and weaknesses on the field, and what's he like off of it? She's got all the answers. Then, JP and Pete welcome on Maryland RB Ty Johnson (20:59), who is looking to take the next step in the NFL. In their interview, Johnson walks the guys through not being invited to the Combine, why he loves breaking off massive runs so much and how special teams will be key in making a final roster. If you like podcasts where JP's distaste for style in the NBA is revealed and Pete tries to brag to Johnson that he once lived with football players, too, then this is the episode for you.

Apr 10, 2019
Laying out bold predictions about the Redskins' 2019 Draft and getting a scouting report on Case Keenum from a Denver authority
00:54:23

The first part of yet another strong Redskins Talk belongs to JP Finlay, Pete Hailey and John Keim, as the three read and react to JP's five (well, it's more like eight, even though he said five) predictions about the Redskins' upcoming draft, an idea taken straight from Tandler's playbook. From who's going to be the pick at 15 to whether the team goes more offense or defense, there's plenty of good debate in that segment. Once JP wraps up, Pete chimes in with a few of his own, including one related to Mitch Tischler. The second half of the action (35:48), meanwhile, is devoted to JP's interview with Mike Klis, who covers the Broncos for 9News in Denver. In their chat, Klis breaks down Case Keenum and also goes through what to expect from the Broncos in their draft (which'll directly impact the 'Skins). If you like podcasts where Keim comes up with the bizarro-world version of Redskins Talk and Pete thirsts for a guess appearance on Keim's show, then this is the episode for you.
