With the playoffs seemingly out of reach the DTC boys reset expectations for the Redskins coming off a horrible loss at Dallas (2:20 - 11:30) and now headed to LA to face the streaking Chargers (12:15 - 20:30). Joe feels strongly that the team has a lot to play for as does FP, while LP thinks they should be in tank mode (21:00 - 26:50). Nick Hamilton, a reporter covering both the Chargers and Rams for NBC Los Angeles, joins the show starting after the break (27min mark) and breaks down the key matchups and shares his prediction for the game on Sunday. Can the Redskins travel to LA for the second time this season and pull out another win? Share your thoughts with us! #HTTR #HailVictory (photo: Chargers.com )
LP and Joe discuss all things Wizards and NBA plus a little bit of the Ball family drama and some bitcoin as well in this weeks episode of Week in Wizards. The team came out flat in Utah and rebounded one night later in Portland... so what can we learn about this team from one poor showing and one "less poor" showing? Well first, Brad Beal is a stud, but secondly, this team is going to struggle to replicate their success from last season. LP things 45 to 50 wins is still a reasonable target, Joe disagrees very strongly. If you love the Wizards and the NBA, listen to this episode! (photo credit: WaPo)
The Redskins went on national TV last night and embarrassed all of their fans and the entire city of Washington DC. It was such a bad performance that Stevie demanded to be heard and joined Joe on Facebook LIVE to vent and air it all out. This is not your regular sports podcast however as when these two get going the destination is always in question. If you want some insight into POTUS tweets or the tax bill, listen to the end. If you only want to hear about the Redskins, there is plenty of that as well in the first 20 minutes as the boys revisit the agony of defeat. Is the Redskins season over? The boys have strong opinions on this but we want to hear yours too! (photo credit:
LP, FP, and Joe are joined by Tyler from the Enough the the B.S. Podcast to preview the Redskins at Cowboys matchup on Thursday Night Football. The term must-win gets tossed around a lot but for both teams the season is on the line and the Redskins need another division win to keep things interesting and on track towards a post-season birth. With injuries mounting, suspensions in play, and a (fake) short week of rest this division rivalry game is likely to be ugly, but can the DTC boys convince Tyler to pick against his Cowboys? Tune in, like, and share!...oh yea, the the boys discuss the color rush uniform issue as well! #HTTR #Hail Victory (photo credit: WaPo)
LP and Joe were LIVE on Facebook talking Wizards after a crushing loss to the Sixers. The Wizards haven't looked like themselves in several games now and surely much of that is because the leader, the best point guard in the east, the undisputed hero of DC; John Wall remains sidelined. But that isn't the only reason the team is struggling. The defense has been poor and with the exception of a few games the bench is slowly coming around but has still been a liability on most nights. The Wizards have the Pistons at home before a tough west coast trip... LP and Joe share their thoughts and predictions and musings on the team and all things NBA. Tune in, like, and share!

The Redskins are headed to New Orleans with the pressure of a near must-win on their shoulders... but LP, FP, and Joe are still picking them to win this week! The injuries to the team continue to increase but there is still hope and as FP demonstrates what didn't work last week, may work this week... so there is always a chance. Tyler and Dayton from the Who Dat Dish Podcast join the DTC boys (18:14-42:05) for twenty solid minutes to preview the game and even though both picked the Saints to win both predict a close one-score game which means it's a toss-up. Listen, like, and share... Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory!
The Washington Redskins failed to capitalize after an impressive victory against the Seahawks last week. The team can’t seem to string together a game where the offense, defense, and special teams put together a good, full game. FP, Joe and LP talk who is to blame, there has been some talk about blaming Kirk, which the DTC crew all disagree, there has been talks about blaming the coaches which the crew is split on. Pryor jawed with a fan pregame, where LP thought that would lift his on-field play but unfortunately went 0/0. Maurice Harris had possibly the catch of the year, at least for the Redskins. The defense failed to stop the Vikings from getting in the end zone multiple times. While the offense went 2/4 in the red zone and 2/4 on fourth down conversions. The boys discuss the loss to the Vikings. At 32:29 the crew shifts to discuss the Wizards latest win streak and the capitals quietly stringing together a few good games. (Photo Credit: Televisa.com)
There is a first time for everything... and this is certainly a first. Joe is flying solo on this episode of DTC as last minute changes kept FP and LP from joining as scheduled... but never fear Eric Yeboah is here! That's right! Atlanta Hawks and NBA insider Eric Yeboah sits it for the entire show with Joe and the duo discuss everything NBA from the Wiz slow start, to the slumping Cavs, to the the extremely disappointing Thunder. Joe get's Eric on the record about the idea that the lack of back-to-back games benefit the below average teams then the two proceed to discuss several of those teams that are performing well to start the season. Eric also shares his thoughts on the MVP of the league so far (Harden or M. Gasol) and in an unforeseen twist, the guys start discussing Crunk and Go-Go music. There is something for everyone in this episode of DTC, listen, like and share!
The Vikings and Redskins will battle again this week for the fifth time in eight season. This is the second time in as many seasons that the Vikings will come to DC and just as in past years these teams mirror each other in more than just record and conference positioning. Neither team can run the ball very well and both teams have playoff-caliber defenses. The Vikings have talent at wide receiver with average quarterback play, while the Redskins have talent at quarterback with average (below-average) wide receivers. Joe and Steve recap the week that was in Seattle and preview the upcoming game with BJ Reidell (16:10) who covers the Vikings for multiple outlets including the About the Labor Podcast, VikingsTerritory.com, and Bleacher Report as well. Steve and Joe both have the Redskins winning... but what about BJ? Tune in and find out! (photo credit: Redskins.com)
FP, LP, and Joe try to find something (anything) to feel positive about as the Redskins travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks on Sunday in yet another late afternoon game. The trade deadline in the NFL came and passed and the Redskins failed to secure help at running back, wide receivers, or offensive line so can we really expect to travel cross country and win? Joe tries to explain how these two teams are shockingly similar in strengths and weaknesses, while LP justifies that the defense is good enough to win and... well... FP just disagrees with everything and is becoming very bitter. Sam from HawksCast and Seahawks Fantable joins the boys (23:01) for some crosstalk and shares his thoughts on this odd rivalry and what to expect on Sunday from Seattle. Listen, like, share and repeat! Hail to the Redskins!
The Wizards had a week to forget losing to the Lakers (blowing a lead), losing to the Warriors (blowing a lead), beating the Kings, and then losing to the horrible Suns at home after having a 20 point lead! LP and Joe talk about all things Wizards and the NBA Eastern Conference over the first half of the podcast and then are joined by Shawn Philpot from the Swinging Swords Podcast based in Cleveland (13:01). Shawn helps break down the craziness in the East and gives LP and Joe a few things to think about regarding this Cavaliers team in context that only a Cleveland fan could. If you love the Wizards, the Cavaliers, or the NBA, this is the game preview you want to listen to ahead of Friday night's showdown in DC!
LP and Joe discuss the Wizards hot start, the state of the NBA Eastern Conference, and recap the Wiz losing to the Lakers ahead of their "finals preview" against the Warriors on Friday... at least Joe is convinced it is a Finals preview. Photo Credit: NBA.com
LP and Joe recap the horrible Monday night loss and try to figure out what happened to all the Redskins wide receivers. LP is in semi-panic mode while Joe is in full-panic mode. The Redskins need to get healthy quick as they prepare to face the Cowboys next week in a near-must-win NFC East battle.
The NBA season is back and the Washington Wizards are going to win the Eastern Conference. Joe explains why, while LP and FP take a softer position expecting the Wizards to finish second or third and Stevie asks the "other" question... does it really matter? Stevie is still a tad salty from the Nationals loss, and LP from the USMNT / World Cup disaster, but Joe is pumped and by the end of the episode FP is too! The bottomline is this the best Wizards team we have seen in two decades and with an unlucky injury striking the Celtics every NBA fan should be looking at the Wizards as the most dangerous team in the east... PERIOD! Welcome to NBA 2017-2018! The DTC boys are ready! Are you?
The Redskins head to Philadelphia on Monday night for a showdown to clarify the top ranks of the NFC East. The 'skins lost to the Eagles in the season opener but Joe and LP are convinced the game should have ended differently. Stevie and FP are more focused on the task at hand and think the Redskins have a reasonable chance to go into Philadelphia and win. One thing is for sure, all four talking heads are finished with TP and this receiver group. They simply must play better. The Eagles can be beat and the Redskins are certainly good enough to do it. Will the Redskins primetime luck continue? LP, FP, and Joe think so (Joe's taking the over too), while Stevie isn't convinced. Who you got Monday Night?
It’s an unimpressive victory Sunday in the nation’s capital, it you didn’t see the game you wouldn’t think the Redskins won based on LP and FP’s outtakes. FP was fired up about Jay Grudens play calling while LP was perfectly putting all the blame on the players. The WR’s were nowhere to be seen, and Chris Thompson once again led the team in receiving yards. The secondary position took some bumps and bruises but ultimately came through with the clutch INT by Kendall Fuller. At the end of the day our former beloved WR Pierre Garcon was the MVP of the Redskins defense. Thank you Pierre. Listen on this week’s instant over reaction show.
This may be the most gut wrenching of them all. For a team that’s suffered three straight NLDS game five losses before tonight, including one in which they led 6-0, that’s telling. Of course, in true tragic and familiar fashion the Nationals found yet another way to lose in spectacular fashion; painful fashion. Where do we go from here? Mat, Stevie, and Joe discuss on a depressing end of season podcast as the Nationals fall to the Cubs at home. This was it DC, our best shot at defeating the curse, but just like the Wizards losing in an elimination game, Captials too, and Redskins losing a win-and-your-in game last season, the Nationals couldn't pull out a win when the city needed it most. This SUCKS! Listen and share... (Photo Credit: New York Post)
Stevie and Joe discuss what the Redskins need to do to win/dominate the 49ers on Sunday and what the issues will be if they lose. With Shannahan and Garcon returning to face their former team both will be hungry to get the 49ers into the win column for the first time in 2017. The Redskins are the better team, they should win, but this is DC after all and the city is still disoriented after another game five Nationals loss at home... a Redskins win would be the perfect chaser to get us all feeling just a little bit better. Two life-long 49ers fans join the show as well, but ultimately the general thought is the Redskins should win. Stevie like this to be a high scoring game, Joe thinks the opposite... time will tell! Hail to the Redskins! (...looking ahead, don't miss FP and LP covering the game live from FedEx Field including a post-game fan call-in show to wrap up things on Sunday night.)
The 2017 MLB Postseason has arrived and the Nationals are locked and loaded for a run towards the World Series! Mat, Anthony, Stevie, and Joe talk about expectations for the Nationals vs Cubs series to start on Friday in DC and get into detail about potential pitching rotations, batting order changes, and identify a few unlikely candidates for the title of hero should the Nationals pull off the series win! The DTC crew will be at every Nationals home game throughout the series and will provide analysis and thoughts after every game as well! The Nationals have work to do, and the entire city of DC is collectively, cautiously, awaiting the start to what should be a great series! Do that Nationals have what it take to beat the Cubs... the four of sure think so. Let's go N-A-T-S Nats, Nats, Nats!
The Redskins were in position to win, but with a minute on the clock and the defense on the field they couldn't keep the Chiefs from pulling ahead on the final possession. These two teams mirror each other in several ways but with poor clock management and a big shot to win that slipped through our hands the Redskins head into the bye week with a 2-2 record. FP, LP, Stevie, and Joe wrap up the LIVE viewing party from Glory Days and look ahead to the 49ers in two weeks time. This one stings deep... we could have won! But all 'Skins fans should be encouraged... the Redskins proved they can hang with and beat anyone in the league! (PhotoCredit:KC.com)
The first half is over and the boys have a LOT of thoughts on what the Redskins are doing well and what needs to be adjusted for the second half. FP, LP, Joe, John, Razzle, and Ash pass out their first half game balls and prepare for a BIG Redskins second half!
The boys are on the road at Glory Days in Vienna recording the pregame and postgame shows LIVE with fans! LP, FP, and Joe have the Redskins winning big tonight while Stevie is taking the Chiefs in a close game. For the record Joe is also taking the under on points which are set at 49.5 total. The guys break down the key differences between the two teams and touch on the similarities too including speedy running backs, fast middle linebackers, and a secondary that can shut down any reciever core in the league. Coach Mike and Lucky Larry join the podcast (15:05) and share their thoughts on the game as well! We are live from Vienna Glory Days for the whole game... come join us! ...and Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory!
Hail to the Redskins! What a complete performance from the Redskins tonight against a very good Raiders team! LP is singing, FP is smiling, Stevie is dancing in the streets of DC, and Joe is convinced we are Super Bowl-bound! The guys pass out their game balls to coaches and players highlighting the best plays of the night and talk X's and O's about what worked and what didn't as the focus now changes to an equally good KC Chiefs team next Monday night in another primetime tilt! The fellas also discuss their reaction to Dan Snyder locking arms with the players during the national anthem tonight and share a few thoughts on what they saw around the league too. Don't miss this episode on a Redskins Victory Sunday and make sure to join us next Monday night in person for a LIVE show! ... more details to follow this week!
After the first win of the 2017 season, FP and LP are breaking down the win with instant reactions. The mentee couldn't defeat the mentor. Aaron Donald was a force but just not enough for the LA Rams, as they went down to the Washington Redskins 27-20. FP and LP break down their grades for the offense, defense and special teams. The offensive run game was running on all cylinders today, however the pass game struggled at times. The defense had a solid showing with the one-armed Mason Foster sealing the game with a 4th quarter pick. At the end of a day a win is a win and the Washington Redskins won the game. LP and FP are both confident the Redskins will get better with time, but have 2 tough games coming up. We are going to enjoy this win for 24 hours before moving on the Oakland Raiders. Hail to the Redskins!
FP and LP are back on to preview the Redskins and Rams. Today marks exactly 20 years since the FedEx field has opened. The Redskins at 79-81-1 during their 20 year tenure at FedEx field. LP is annoyed at Redskins fans reaction after their season opening loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. FP things Redskins fans are justified because of all they had to put up with. FP defends Dan Snyder as he has been surprisingly silent and allowing the front office to run the team. There are many coaching ties between the Redskins and the Rams, where FP and LP discuss who has the coaching edge. FP and LP both discuss the offense, defense and special teams and make their game predictions. Tweet us your game predictions @DefeatTheCurse
A special Patriots Day episode of D.T.C. remembering all those impacted by 9/11 here in DC and beyond. The Nationals have won the NL East for the fourth time in six years and all eyes now turn to the postseason! The Nats didn’t just take care of business, they did in historical fashion locking up the NL East in record time (fastest in 15 years) and well, who cares that the NL East is historically bad, we are going to the playoffs! Stevie and Joe talk all things Nats including how amazing Trea Turner is playing (as if he hasn’t missed any time), when/if Bryce will return, and which opponent would you rather not see in the postseason; D’backs, Cubs, Brewers, Dodgers… Cardinals. The Nats aren’t streaking, they are just plain great, and the numbers don’t lie. The pitching rotation is tops in MLB and at any time the bats can explode too. This is it DC, our best shot at Defeating the Curse is the 2017 Washington Nationals! Congrats boys! Let’s keep it rolling! (photo credit: Federal Baseball)
The Eagles came into FEDEX and beat the Redskins today and Stevie and Joe are not happy about it! The Skins offense started slow (again) and well, never really found their groove. The running game struggled, special teams too, however the defense was a positive bright spot... at least Joe thinks so. Philly Pete joins the duo to break down the game as we turn our attention to week 2. (photo credit: CSN)
FP is pissed that Sua has left the team and Stevie doesn't really care but thinks the timing is really bad. LP thinks everyone is basing their assessments of Cravens on potential and the desire to find the next Sean Taylor (RIP 21)... The DTC crew in typical Redskins-fan style lower their expectations after a poor preseason heading into Week 1. Is the team collapsing under the weight of fan expectations or are fans just expecting too much? That and many other questions were asked of Cody Benjamin (starting at 15:30), a writer for CBS Sports, and BleedingGreenNation for an Eagles-Insider perspective. Cody also shares thoughts on the week 1 matchup vs the Redskins, Philly-fan expectations of Carson Wentz, and the offseason roster shuffling at RB and WR. Football is back, the Redskins are back... week 1 here we go! Listen and share! (Photo Credit: Fast Philly Sports)
Fantasy Football Season is here! The DTC boys are joined by David, 20, and Razzle to execute a mock six-round 10-team PPR draft with Joe and Stevie providing color commentary along the way. FP, LP, David, 20, and Razzle each drafted two teams and the results were mixed. FP put together two solid rosters while LP, David, and Razzle, put together one strong and one average roster. 20 however ended up with two really bad rosters... but that's ok, because every league has one of "those guys" right? Joe shared his thoughts on several players not drafted in the top 60 and Steve provided some strategy insights into the best course of attack to build a winning roster... the irony of course being Steve is one of the worst fantasy football players of all-time. This show was a lot of fun and the analysis provided throughout will prove to be helpful to all fantasy players as we head into the long fantasy-draft-holiday-weekend! Listen, comment, and share!

Game of Thrones Season Finale Podcast is here! Stevie, FP, and Joe break down all 73mins of awesomeness in the finale of the course of this special edition, extended podcast. So many twists in turns along the way leading to ALL of the main characters of the show finally ending up in the same place at the same time and the scene didn't disappoint! *Spoilers Here* While Stevie and FP give the episode an A (and the season a B-) Joe was more disappointed in the finale due to what he calls the "sloppy timing" and "unnecessary plot extensions" which he explains in full. Regardless of how you felt about the finale, you should listen to this podcast and share your insight as we all wait a painful year for the show to return! (PhotoCredit: HBO/Radkil)
Steve, LP, and Joe break down the first half action and debate whether or not to watch the second half. What a disaster the first half as been for our beloved Redskins... no running game, bad passing game, and a pick-six to top things off. What is wrong with the Redskins!? LP still believes and is convinced this is just preseason "vanilla" gameplanning but Stevie and Joe are in full panic mode... actually Joe just wants to talk about the Mayweather fight... tune in, get caught up, and fingers crossed; Skins needs a better second half!

Well, Kyrie is a Celtic, and Crowder is a Cavalier, and that means the Wizards will win the Eastern Conference this season! LP and Joe break down all the details of the trade and project forward about how the Wizards actually improved by default by doing nothing! Boston has now traded five of their top seven scorers from last year and their three best perimeter defenders while acquiring more offensive firepower with Hayward and Irving. The Cavaliers however now have some insurance parts in place just in case LeBron decides to leave Cleveland for a second time and a very high first round pick as well! Special guest Monica B from Cleveland joins the duo to explain why everything in Cleveland isn't so bad even if James does leave next year... But wow.... if you don't believe the NBA is nuts, how can we convince you? The Wizards are locked and loaded to challenge and the win the east... the time is now! (photo credit: SI)
Stevie, FP, Joe, and special guest Anthony (the Nats Stat Authority) sit down to talk about the red-hot Nationals bullpen and debate how much credit Mike R deserves for adjusting/trading on the fly (1m-5m). The Nationals are still missing key players but they are getting closer to a full "stud" lineup (6m-11) and Dusty continues to work his magic with the roster day in and day out (11m-14). Harper will take his time returning but they really don't need him against the impressive Astros do they (15m-21) and don't miss the hot take about the Robert Lee, ESPN mess at the end either! (Photo Credit: Washington Post)
The Redskins came out of the gate flat in week one of the NFL preseason. Another week of practice, more defined expectations and the hope for a successful first drive are things we want to see week two against Greenbay. LP and FP dive into what to watch for in week two and discuss their expectations. Both FP and LP list their top 4 things to watch, Greg Manusky, Nico Marley, Ryan Grant all make the list. Will the offense be able to move the ball? Will the defense be able to contain the Green Bay Packers Offense? Will Sua Cravens be back week 1? All things and more discussed in this episode. (Photo Credit: Redskins.com)
FP, LP, Stevie, and Joe are all back to talk Redskins... a whole lot of Redskins. The Redskins came out flat against the Ravens (:1-:930) and the guys wonder why and if Training Camp has something to do with it (:11-:14). The slow starts are problematic and have becoming a defining negative feature of Jay Gruden's tenure (:15-:23) so the fellas offer a few suggestions to get the team out of the gate with a bang to start the season. The schedule isn't ideal for the Skins this year (:24-:31) with so many primetime games that the team MUST start fast in hopes of a split over the last six games at the end of the season. Will Kap or RG3 land on a team this season (:32-:39), plus, in a rare political exchange, the boys talk very openly and honestly about the events in Charlottesville over the past few days (:40-:47).... so much going on... listen and share! (Photo Credit: Washington Post)
The Nationals can't seem to get everything going in the same direction at the same time. Star pitcher goes down, bullpen improves, drop a bunch of games on the road, weather delays, and now Bryce goes down!! Stevie and Joe catch-up on all things Nats with an eye towards the playoffs and when the team may get all of its parts back ahead of the postseason push. As of now, Nats fans rest assured that the injury which looked season ending in real-time may only be a few weeks in duration... but let's be real, Harper may have just lost tens of millions of dollars slipping on one wet bag in a meaningless August game! (Photo Credit: SportsOnEarth)
So much happened in this week's episode that we expanded the commentary circle to get more fan insight! What role will Gendry play moving forward with his awesome battle axe?! Where is Yuron Greyjoy? When will Jon Snow find out who he really is? If push comes to shove will Jamie side with his sister or his brother? With just a few (long) episodes left in this season, what do you expect to happen next? D, Sam, Peter, 20, Stevie, and Joe break it all down this week! Tune in, like, and share! (Photo Credit: HBO)
It finally happened... the dragons have taken flight and chaos has won. This may have been the shortest episode at just 50 minutes long but the plot lines of several main characters didn't just inch forward, they leaped ahead! The Stark family reunion continues, Cersei's plotting continues, Jon's negotiations to join forces to fight the night-walkers continues, and Daenery's finally unleashes the dragons! Sam, Deena, and Joe talk all things GoT including what may amount to a colossal fail on behalf of the writers if Jamie doesn't survive getting shoved off his horse in the final scene... in an inch of water ... what are they thinking!? Tune in, comment, and share! (photo credit: HBO)
The Nationals have dropped a few games but Mad Max is hitting homers now and several guys are getting very very close to returning to the active roster and daily lineup. FP, Stevie, and Joe talk Nationals bullpen, trades, hitting, NL East lead, and Dodgers and Cubs too in an all-Nationals 12min blitz of content (1-12m) before they pivot to the Redskins (13-21m) and end with a discussion about the Verizon Center's potential new name and Joe shares his thoughts on Neymar moving from Barca to PSG (31-35m). Listen and share your thoughts! (photo credit: Steve Mitchell/USA TODAY Sports)
While the Mother of Dragons and Tyrion believe they have have authored the perfect battle plan to rebound from Yara Greyjoy's defeat last week the tables turn yet again as Jamie and Cersei prove yet again they are capable of outsmarting their brother. This episode had a little bit of everything and a lot of interesting twists and tidbits to dive deeper into. Casterly Rock may have fallen to Grey Worm but Yuron has the last laugh yet again while we say goodbye to another beloved character in Olenna Tyrell who met her doom but not without some final parting shots! We also had a Stark sibling reunion, and parade of shame, and several unanswered questions including the whereabouts of Arya? Listen to this episode to get Steve, John, Peter, and Joe's take on all the action and twists! (Photo Credit: HBO)
In part one of Training Camp preview LP and FP share a fans perspective on the team including expectations and concerns, however in the second part the guys are joined by Manny Benton of Breaking Burgundy and Scout to give an insiders perspective on the team. Benton shares thoughts on Jordan Reed's tow injury, the upside potential of Maurice Harris, and discusses the revamped defensive line now under the direction of Jim Tomsula! If you love the Redskins, you need to listen to this! A little cross-talk between DTC and Breaking Burgundy is just what you need to get ready for all things Redskins Training Camp! #HTTR (Photo Credit: Redskins.com)
On the eve of training camp 2017 LP and FP are live discussing the late breaking news about Jordan Reed going on the PUP list and jump into expectations for all three units of the team with a focus on the offense. The running backs will have more on their plates if Reed is to miss any extended amount of time but there may be enough fire-power on the team that all will be well down the stretch towards the playoff push. Part one is all us but stay tuned for part two with Redskins insider Manny Benton of Breaking Burgundy and Scout.com. (Photo Credit: Redskins.com)
The Nationals are back in DC and the team is ready to go against the Brewers tonight. Joe and Steve are at the park a little early to attend Dusty Baker's pre-game press conference and to watch the boys warmup on the field. Listen now! (Photo Credit: Joe Azer, DTC)
Steve, Joe, and special guests Deena and Sam, share their rapid-reaction to an eventful episode that confirms the game board is shrinking and every critical decision matters now more than ever! Steve leads with several thought provoking questions, debunking a few fan-theories along the way, and shares his thoughts on what comes next...hint: the meeting we have all been waiting for! While Deena and Sam discuss their takeaways from this episode plus share some insight on the show from a ladies perspective and Joe doubles-down on his thought that Jamie Lannister will be the one to kill Cersei!

We were all doing our own thing on a quiet summer Friday night when the news broke that John Wall had signed his contract extension with the Washington Wizards and we knew we had to jump on and record a reaction podcast! Joe, Stevie, LP, and FP, all chime in on what the John Wall extension means for the Wizards and for the city of DC (2:15-12:00) and look forward to the crumbling state of the Cavaliers with Kyrie demanding a trade and wonder... is this the season for the Wizards to make a serious push to challenge to win the East! With Wall, Beal, Porter, and Coach Brooks under contract until at least 2021 the time is now for the Wizards! The foursome also recap the Nationals post All-Star Break resurgence (14:30-28:15) and the teams recent trades! The show wraps with the popular "Point After" segment which highlights things that have nothing to do with sports going on in the guys personal lives! Have a listen and share!
With news of Kirk not getting his extension this episode focuses on the men charged with protecting him along with the men in the trenches on defense. LP and FP are bullish on both units but especially the rookies. Is the OL one of the best in the league? Is the DL improved even with noticeable losses during free agency? How much does scheme factor into unit success? Tune in and find out and Hail to the Redskins! (photo credit: Redskins.com)
The 2017 season may be the last one for Kirk Cousins under center for the Washington Redskins. The team failed to reach an agreement with their rising star Quarterback and everything is now in place for him to leave next off-season, should he choose to. Joe and Stevie discuss all the happenings of the past few days, from Bruce Allen's press conference (2:00 - 12:30), to Kirk Cousins joining 106.7 to share his side of the story (13:45 - 20:30), and then offer the fans perspective on what will come next including best case and worst case scenarios for both Kirk and the team. Joe believes that this is the Redskins best shot to win the Superbowl since his youth and if Kirk walks next off season a lot of Redskins free agents will be doing the same effectively closing this championship window!

Winter has come. Season 7 has arrived. Joe, Steve, Beef, and special guest John discuss the premiere and their rapid-reaction to an episode that underwhelmed a bit but delivered a lot of information. The foursome agreed that the opening may have been one of the best scenes in the entire show and that there is a lot going on at the Citadel that hadn't been discussed previously but this episode was ultimately about two women, one standing on a map, the other taking her first look at one that are on a collision course. The boys also discuss the odds of who will be the next character to be "retired" and odds of who ultimately ends up on the throne at the end of the season! If you love the G.O.T. then tune in and share! (photo credit: Time Magazine)
Well, the fight that nobody expected to actual take place is on the books and just about one month away. LP, FP, and Stevie have the night off so Joe invited Boxing and MMA super-fan "20" on the show to discuss the fight, the hype surrounding it, and to talk tactics and predictions as well. If you love combat sports or just want to get caught up on all things Mayweather vs. McGregor this is the podcast you need to listen to. Don't miss Joe's hot take (@26min) regarding a few changes that could be made to this fight that would command an increase of the PayPerView buy from $100 to $250... could the two sports be combined into a super-combat-sport? Tune in and listen to the guys discuss! This fight is going to happen... who you got!? (photo credit: SkySports)
The Redskins are engaged in a game of high-stakes chicken with their franchise QB Kirk Cousins and LP and Joe are terrified to ask what the future holds for the franchise. The show was supposed to be about the OL/DL but quickly got sideways and into the Cousins contract status, why management is unlikely to get a deal done, and a discussion of the backup options Bruce Allen may be preparing to explore. Once upon a time LP was 99% sure the Skins would get a long term deal done with Kirk... he has updated his opinion while Joe has double-down on his. What is the magic number to get this deal done? What happens if it doesn't get done? Do Redskins fans support the team or the quarterback? ... is it really long term deal or bust?!
