It's just JP Finlay and Pete Hailey for this Washington Football Talk, and the guys begin with a quick clarification about a Jaret Patterson tweet that caused some fans on social media to raise their online eyebrows. After that, the duo touches on Curtis Samuel and then gives their main takeaways from pressers featuring Jamin Davis, Terry McLaurin, Taylor Heinicke, Sam Cosmi and Ron Rivera (during this segment, podcast favorite Michael Phillips stops by JP's truck to chime in). And, to close, the hosts toss to JP's recent 1-on-1 interview with Rivera, where JP asks the coach about the defense's overall struggles and Davis' personal progress. If you like podcasts where Pete says he's not in favor of moral victories but then contradicts himself and JP examines his own Twitter likes, then this is the episode for you.

    PACKERS PREVIEW: Dustin Hopkins gets released and a banged-up Washington preps for its trip to Lambeau Field

    59:50

    This is a large and in charge Washington Football Talk featuring JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey, and it begins with analysis of a major move at kicker. Was this the right time to release Dustin Hopkins, why is Chris Blewitt the one to replace him and what message does it send to the rest of the team? All of those things and more are discussed in that segment. After the trio wraps that up, they catch you up on the numerous injuries affecting the offense and take a moment to reflect on how different this Sunday's lineup could be from the lineup that coaches imagined they'd have leading up to 2021. Pete also explains some mixed messaging that's going on for Taylor Heinicke. Eventually, JP, Mitch and Pete preview the Packers game — warning: They aren't that thrilled about it — before tossing to JP's 1-on-1 with Taylor Heinicke from Wednesday (where JP talks to him about his Matrix analogy for the QB and Taylor remembers his late father) and Ron Rivera from Monday. If you like podcasts where you're informed of a sweet piece of memorabilia that's now available for the very reasonable price of $20 and the hosts once again lament that they aren't covering a quality franchise, then this is the episode for you.

    POSTGAME POD: Washington loses yet again, and they do it in an uninspiring way yet again, too

    48:46

    Hopefully this Washington Football Talk is more memorable than the Burgundy and Gold's loss to the Chiefs. JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey get things started by passing on an interesting note about Mitch's tie and then falling into a rabbit hole of sadness about the state of the franchise and the direction its going. That then leads into more down discussions about the faith each host has that Washington will make 2021 a positive season. Eventually, they go through their usual postgame staples, Mitch gives you a rousing update on DeAndre Carter and, to close, you'll hear JP's 1-on-1s with Chase Young and Sean Taylor's father, Pedro, plus a great mashup of guys like Joe Gibbs, Santana Moss, Ed Reed and Reggie Wayne reminiscing about Sean over the years that Mitch put together. If you like podcasts where JP relays an unbelievable story about something he thought was real but actually wasn't and Pete gives it his all after a long wedding weekend, then this is the episode for you.

    CHIEFS PREVIEW: Reacting to this sad Sean Taylor situation before looking ahead to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs

    52:31

    JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have quite a bit to discuss on this particular Washington Football Talk. Unfortunately, as usual, the first topic doesn't have to do with the upcoming matchup, but rather the club's horrific handling of Sean Taylor's jersey retirement. Following a tremendous intro by JP, the three hosts spend the first 15 minutes or so of the show bashing the Burgundy and Gold for botching something that should've been so easy and so celebratory. After getting that out of their systems, the trio turns their attention back to football, which includes segments on whether this weekend's meeting with the Chiefs will actually stay close (Mitch thinks so) and if the current message that Ron Rivera is emphasizing is the wrong one (Pete thinks so). Then comes the typical pregame segments and an adult question from Pete that he poses to his two adult cohosts. And lastly, things close with JP going 1-on-1 with Chase Young and Ron Rivera (the Young chat happened on Wednesday, while the Rivera interview came on Monday). If you like podcasts where Mitch makes a ridiculous claim (even by his standards) and JP quotes both "Of Mice and Men" and Bane, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    POSTGAME POD: We're already running out of things to say and it's only Week 5 for Washington

    35:00

    JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are flummoxed, once again, by the Washington Football Team, who dropped a very winnable contest on Sunday vs. the Saints. The guys discuss the disastrous defense again as well as what changes they'd like to see on that unit. They also recap the horrific Hail Mary, which was horrific. From there, they run through Game Balls and Goats and 100 Chips before looking ahead at the brutal schedule to come. They also laugh a lot, because what else is there to do? If you like podcasts where JP informs Mitch that Mitch is not "his type" and there's a completely random callback to an old Albert Pujols home run, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    SAINTS PREVIEW: Analyzing Washington's hefty injury list, Taylor Heinicke's next test and what should be a close game

    41:02

    It's almost time to welcome the Saints, so JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have a preview of New Orleans vs. Washington for you right here. To begin, the guys look at Washington's lengthy list of injuries and give their leans on who's playing and who isn't. That leads to a discussion about Curtis Samuel specifically. After that, the trio discuss Taylor Heinicke and whether Heinicke's sample size is big enough to start truly buying in. From there, you'll get the classic pregame segments (featuring a tweaked version of 100 Chips) and, lastly, JP's 1-on-1 with JD McKissic, who discusses his huge performance vs. the Falcons, his fantastic blitz pickups and where "JD" came from. If you like podcasts where JP opens up with a "miraculous" intro and things close out with decreasingly useful stats, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    EMERGENCY POD: Catching you up on the criminal investigation involving Ryan Vermillion, WFT's head trainer

    27:50

    This might be the craziest topic behind an Emergency Pod in Washington Football Talk history, as JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to explain and react to Monday's news that WFT head trainer Ryan Vermillion is at the center of a criminal investigation involving federal law enforcement. JP, who helped break the story, sets the scene with all that he knows, and then the trio comments from there. After they're through, JP then talks to Ron Rivera, who endorses Vermillion in one respect before reviewing the Falcons game and other football topics even further. If you like podcasts where Mitch comes up with a new Ashburn-related slogan and JP gives some background on his difficult journey to his interview with Rivera, then this is the episode for you.

    POSTGAME POD: Taylor, Terry and JD save Washington's season with fourth-quarter heroics in Atlanta

    42:42

    .......Phew.... That sums up how JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey feel after Washington's Week 4 win in Atlanta, which was equal parts exciting and disheartening. To begin, the guys try to sort through their reactions, with Mitch coming across as quite optimistic, Pete on the opposite side and JP somewhere in the middle. From there, they recap Taylor Heinicke, JD McKissic, Terry McLaurin and DeAndre Carter's exploits as well as the defense's continued issues. You'll get the postgame staples like 100 Chips and Over/Unders after that, and then to close, you'll hear JP's two postgame interviews with McLaurin and Carter, two guys who have no idea how to describe what it's like playing with Heinicke but sure as hell enjoy it. If you like podcasts where JP gives a scathing hotel review and Pete celebrates his birthday by being weirdly grumpy, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    FALCONS PREVIEW: How much will Curtis Samuel help in Week 4 and how bad could things get with another loss?

    36:27

    It's time for another preview installment of Washington Football Talk show, as JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey get you geared up for the Burgundy and Gold's trip to Atlanta. To open it up, the guys explain the very pleasant news that Curtis Samuel is set to debut on Sunday, though one host is more skeptical than the others. The trio also has a debate about whether Antonio Gibson is set to have a very busy weekend. From there, they do their usual pregame segments (even though JP tries to erase one). And, lastly, they toss to JP's 1-on-1 with Kam Curl, who addresses the defense's cold start and his alma mater's phenomenal college campaign. If you like podcasts where JP passes on some wise homecoming advice and Pete undersells himself in his wildest dreams, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    Curtis Samuel suits up again, Taylor Heinicke discusses being a "game manager" and JP talks to Terry McLaurin & Ron Rivera

    37:00

    JP Finlay and Mitch Tischler have a midweek Washington Football Talk for you that begins with a Curtis Samuel update and then transitions into a chat about Taylor Heinicke's reaction to needing to be more of a "game manager." From there, the guys catch you up on an interesting comment that Ereck Flowers made about Antonio Gibson before tossing to two 1-on-1s, the first of which is JP and Terry McLaurin and the second of which is JP and Ron Rivera. Terry covers his thoughts on the defense as well as milk (yes, milk) while Ron assesses what he wants to see out of his QB after a rough Buffalo outing. If you like podcasts where one of the NFL's best skill players and one of the NFL's best podcast hosts describes their milk preferences, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    POSTGAME POD: It's a full on beatdown in Buffalo as the defense falls apart and Taylor Heinicke struggles

    35:37

    JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey are here to... commiserate with you after that disgusting display versus the Bills. In their recap of the Week 3 blowout, the hosts lament the defense's poor, poor effort, Taylor Heinicke's worst performance as a WFT QB, Chase Young's lack of involvement and more. As for the positives, well, there were no positives really, so they just keep harping on the negatives. If you like podcasts where JP gets annoyed by Mitch's attempted contributions to JP's writing and Pete's obsession with the Bills' stadium's name comes to light, then this is the episode for you.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
