Rank #1: POSTGAME POD: The Redskins lose (again) and Dwayne Haskins struggles (again)

Podcast cover
Read more

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here with another less-than-cheery Redskins Talk. Sorry. In their conversations, they react to the loss as well as Dwayne Haskins’ performance and what it means for him moving forward. There’s a lot to get through there, including analysis on whether or not he should be the starter going forward. They also chat about the defense and the fact that Washington is sitting at a horrific 1-7. To wrap, they reflect on the Vikings’ gorgeous stadium before JP complains about how Minneapolis’ streets are organized. If you like podcasts where Pete derails things constantly and JP goes off on the Redskins’ jerseys, then this is the episode for you.

Rank #2: Recapping the Redskins' clutch win over the Panthers, plus Josh Norman and DeAngelo Hall talk face-to-face postgame

Podcast cover

For the first time in Redskins Talk history, all four of JP Finlay, Rich Tandler, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are present for a postgame pod. Mark the date down, folks. In this episode, you'll hear the guys give their immediate reactions to Washington's important Week 6 win over Carolina. How much of a stud is Adrian Peterson? How great was Josh Norman's redemption performance? What worries still remain? You'll also be treated to a Game Balls and Goats segment, one that was supposed to be tightened up but ended up not really tightened up. Next, you'll get a final tally on the over/unders, which fortunately didn't end in a tie. COOL THING ALERT: Once the four hosts wrap, you'll hear Josh Norman's appearance on Redskins Postgame Live, where he and DeAngelo Hall were able to talk man-to-man after their interesting past few days. You just don't get this kind of content anywhere else, so stick around for that. If you like podcasts where JP gets extra fed up with Tandler and Mitch's buzzer sounds just awful, then this is the episode for you.

Rank #3: Trying to identify the best position group on the 2018 Redskins and re-grading the team's 2014 draft class

Podcast cover

JP Finlay, Rich Tandler and Pete Hailey linked up for this particular Redskins Talk, which starts with JP campaigning for Pete to get to 1,000 Twitter followers (FOLLOW @_PeterHailey, 1000th person gets a t-shirt!) Then, the three react to news that Bashaud Breeland is taking visits with a few teams again and speculate on what kind of deal the corner should take with his next club. That conversation sparks a discussion about the strongest and weakest positions on the team, with the first category proving to be a somewhat hard answer to come up with. Next, it's time to re-evaluate the Redskins' 2014 draft class, which included Breeland, Trent Murphy and Morgan Moses. How does that haul look now? And finally, JP and Tandler weigh in on the bizarre Yanny vs. Laurel Internet thing. If you like podcasts where Pete does a questionable caveman impression and Tandler provides more info on Ted Bolser than you'll ever need, then this is the episode for you.

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey tried to collect themselves after a season-changing day at FedEx Field for this postgame edition of Redskins Talk that tries to cover everything. As JP says at the start, there's never been an episode like this one. The main topic, of course, is Alex Smith's injury. How did the offense look after Smith exited, and can Colt McCoy lead them now that he's the starter? That's a conversation that's revisited often throughout. They also give out Game Balls and Goats as well as check out over/under results. If you like podcasts where... actually, selling this one doesn't feel necessary.

This podcast is coming at you from the podcast picnic table at Redskins Park in Ashburn and features JP Finlay, Rich Tandler, Chick Hernandez, Pete Hailey and 'Redskins 100' producer/heavy hair gel user Ajay Atayee. The guys open up by having (yes, another) discussion about left guard after JP reported that Arie Kouandjio's 2018 season is in jeopardy due to a quad injury. Is it time to panic? There's disagreement answering that one. Then, everyone gives their observations and standouts from Friday's rookie minicamp session, including notes on Derrius Guice and Trey Quinn, after watching the Burgundy and Gold's first-year players get after it in practice under Jay Gruden's watchful eye. If you like podcasts where Tandler calls someone a redneck and the Trey Quinn hype train starts rolling, then this is the episode for you.

For a 6-7 team, the Redskins sure don't have a shortage of things to talk about, and that's precisely why JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are all here (and for the first time in pod history, all on the phone). To begin, they look at the Mason Foster situation, including Jay Gruden's response to the controversy as well as what Foster's teammates were saying. Is there any excuse for what Foster said? After that, they move on to another 'Skins linebacker, as the hosts react to Zach Brown's comments where he said he expects to leave the 'Skins after the year. How volatile could that get? Then, they transition to yet another starting QB, breaking down what Josh Johnson told the media on Wednesday and how he could influence this team in a more positive way than Mark Sanchez did. If you like podcasts where there's not a lot of holding back, then this is the episode for you.

Podcast cover

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. If you like podcasts where a Sean Paul smash-hit makes an appearance off the top and JP totally outclasses Pete in an ad read, then this is the episode for you.

Rank #13: 2019 DRAFT RECAP: Getting to know the 10 newest Redskins, a class that as of now looks fantastic

Podcast cover

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.

And what did this weekend's playoff games teach us about where No. 8 stands in the hierarchy of passers? Also included: Pete's awful flop after JP kindly set him up to contribute for once as well as some news about when Redskins Talk will be published in the offseason.

On Redskins Talk, there's no such thing as a post-draft break. Even though JP Finlay, Rich Tandler and Mitch Tischler all worked long hours during the actual draft, they're back for yet another pod covering what the team did during the NFL's biggest offseason event. The trio were all in attendance for Doug Williams' press conference on Monday, a presser in which he recapped all that went down in Rounds 1-7. So, JP, Rich and Mitch open the pod by reacting to what Doug said at the podium, analyzing things such as Williams' confidence in Derrius Guice and the team's plan at left guard. Then, they move into some housekeeping items — which includes a shoutout to the listeners for helping set a record on the pod for a FOURTH straight month — read another excellent review and then toss to JP's 1-on-1 interview with Williams. There, you'll hear Doug get particularly excited over Sean Dion Hamilton and Trey Quinn. If you like podcasts that continue to bring shine on the 2018 draft class and also include Mitch and Rich calling JP soft (and rightfully so), then this is the episode for you.

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

POSTGAME POD: Alex Smith makes his miraculous return in an otherwise DREADFUL loss to the Rams

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

EMERGENCY POD: Dwayne Haskins is benched(!), Kyle Allen is starting(!) and Alex Smith is now backing Allen up(!)

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

POSTGAME POD: Washington falls to 1-3, but was this loss another disappointment or merely expected?

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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. Hogan discuss Hogan's feelings about this weekend's meeting between Baltimore and Washington, the latest on sports betting in the state and if Hogan gets insulted when he sees the franchise so desperate to build a stadium in DC. Once Hogan says goodbye, the trio of hosts preview Sunday's matchup by going through their Over/Under and 100 Chips segments. Another interview follows that, and this one features former NFL receiver Torrey Smith, a guy who's familiar with the Ravens and who also has a terrific Sean Taylor story that you'll love. Lastly, JP, Mitch and Pete return for some heavy shtick that involves JP "gifting" clothes to Pete. If you like podcasts where Mitch angers JP with his supposed knowledge of biking and the word "frack" is used constantly, then this is the episode for you.

Ron Rivera discusses Dwayne's future with JP and the hosts react to Matt Ioannidis' season-ending injury

Podcast cover

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are back, but they don't waste too much time at the start of this Washington Football Talk because they want you to hear JP's newest 1-on-1 with Ron Rivera. In that interview, JP and Ron go back-and-forth about how Dwayne Haskins is performing, and Rivera brings up a very intriguing part of his past that could impact how much more time he gives his young QB. When that wraps, the trio returns to give their thoughts on what the coach told JP. Then, they move on to reacting to Matt Ioannidis' likely season-ending injury (how big of a deal is it?) as well as Chase Young's far less severe but still concerning groin issue. And, to close, they go through another segment of F Us. If you like podcasts where JP, Mitch and Pete reflect on their experience with an NBC Podcast Taskforce and JP gets upset with the Falcons, the Bears and cashiers, then this is the episode for you.

POSTGAME POD: Dwayne Haskins has the worst start of his NFL career as Washington loses its second straight

Podcast cover
Read more

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey gathered in Mitch's living room for yet another sad postgame show. The beginning bulk of it deals with Dwayne Haskins, who had a very poor outing in Cleveland. They explain why this failure felt different than last week's and even wonder if the names Kyle Allen or Alex Smith are going to become relevant at some point. Yeah, not fun. They also touch on Chase Young's injury before going through Ron Rivera's timeout usage, which again will be a topic of conversation. To wrap, they handle their What Makes You Smile, Game Balls and Goats, Over/Unders and 100 Chips segments. And at the end, you'll get Dontrelle Inman's postgame interview, which aired on NBC Sports Washington's Postgame Live. If you like podcasts where, well, there's not a ton to like about this one, but listen anyway. Thanks. Bye.

WEEK 3 PREVIEW: Why it's so hard to grade Dwayne right now and predicting how the Cleveland game will shake out

Podcast cover
Read more

JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have quite a Washington Football Talk for ya. To begin, they post up at one of their Ourisman spots to discuss the latest injuries, whether there's going to be a conflict when it comes to Ron's global view of operating the franchise and the win-now nature that other coaches and players possess and why it's so difficult to figure out Dwayne's production and potential right now. Then, they toss to JP's 1-on-1 with Jon Bostic, who discusses what it's like playing with Chase Young and his blossoming real estate business. 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). If you like podcasts where Mitch's phone gets compared to the Terminator and JP gives the longest answer ever for a fan question, then this is the episode for you.
