The Washington Redskins made waves locally when 30 players decided to come together to hold their own minicamp of sorts to account for their inability to practice with their coaches during the ongoing NFL lockout. It was a nice story and it spurred a lot of reaction indicating the team was in the midst of a culture change. But how much does it really matter? Are we giving it a little too much credit?
That's the question Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discussed in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. We also talk to our Adam Vingan about Wednesday night's crazy Capitals win to take a 3-1 lead over the Rangers in their first-round 2011 NHL Playoffs series. What happened to allow the Capitals to win that game? We also discuss the Wizards' lack of draft options with our Michael Katz and shoot the breeze about the 2011 NFL Draft with our Daniel Shiferaw.
You can listen to the show this weekend on 106.7 The Fan. Here are the segments.
The Washington Capitals are once again the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, after a long and well-publicized rebuilding effort centered around young talent. Whether they have postseason success or not, it's clear their rebuilding effort was successful. Two other teams in town -- the Wizards and the Nationals -- are arguably in the early stages of similar rebuilding effort. Will they also be successful?
That's the question Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discuss in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. What is the glass half-full outlook for both teams? Which one is closer to getting to where the Capitals are right now?
We also talk the Redskins and the NFL Draft with Shawn Zobel of DraftHeadquarters.com, who consistently is accurate with his mock draft projections. Hear where he thinks the Redskins are leaning as the NFL Draft approaches. Also, we talk to Michael Lee of the Washington Post about the Wizards' season and Byron Kerr of MASNSports.com about the beginning of the Nationals' season.
You can listen to the show Friday night after the Capitals game at 11 p.m. on 106.7 The Fan. Here are the segments.
The Washington Wizards won three games in a row for the first time in three years, and they are finishing the season strong. But what does that finish mean? Does it mean that Ernie Grunfeld and Flip Saunders should be allowed to keep their jobs? Does it mean the Wizards do indeed have a "new Big Three," like owner Ted Leonsis blogged this week?
We discuss that question and more in this week's episode of "SB Nation Radio" on 106.7 The Fan. Scott Jackson and Mike Prada also discuss the Gary Williams/Debbie Yow feud, why Yow may have been motivated to speak out and whether there might have been anything Williams actually did. We also talk to Tarik El-Bashir about the Washington Capitals as they gear up for the NHL Playoffs and discuss the Redskins' need to go defense in the 2011 NFL Draft with our own Daniel Shiferaw.
You can listen to the show Sunday morning at 7 a.m. on 106.7 The Fan. Here are this week's segments.
The NFL lockout continues to drag on, and there are many big issues the league is facing. What will happen with the 2011 NFL Draft? What will the players do while the league and the NFLPA continue to battle? All these and more are questions the Redskins will face all winter.
In this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan, we got some answers from Redskins wide receiver Anthony Armstrong. Armstrong was kind enough to join Scott Jackson and Othello Bouchareb this week to talk about his thoughts on the dispute, his and his teams' plans during the NFL lockout, his breakout 2010 season, his experience in the Intense Football League, his thoughts on the potential of rookies skipping the 2011 NFL Draft, who he thinks the team should pick and his ongoing dispute with Brandon Banks over which player is faster.
Scott and Othello also discussed the Wizards-Heat fight on Wednesday, talked NFL Draft with Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan and dissected the Nationals with MLB.com's Bill Ladson. You can catch the show at 8 p.m. Saturday night or 7 a.m. Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan.
Here are this week's segments:
As we continue to evaluate the Wizards' draft prospects in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, one man has risen above all the others. Derrick Williams made his case to be a Wizards cornerstone the other night, dominating Duke for 32 points and 13 rebounds in a shocking 93-77 Sweet 16 win for Arizona. Is he now the number one prospect in the NBA Draft? Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discussed that topic in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan.
Also, which local team is best equipped to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament next season? Is it Maryland? George Mason? Georgetown, even with its heavy graduation losses? We discussed that topic in our second segment. We also talked to Byron Kerr of MASNSports.com about the Nationals as Opening Day nears and our own Adam Vingan about Alex Ovechkin's injury, Mike Green's troubles and the team in general as it pushes for the postseason. You can catch the show at 8 p.m. Saturday night or 7 a.m. Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan.
Here are this week's segments:
The 2011 NCAA Tournament is going on, and many local teams are trying to make surprise runs. But the NCAA Tournament is also important for another local team that isn't even participating. Yes, Wizards fans should be keeping an eye on the action outside of all the local squads. The Wizards are expected to get another high draft pick, and many of the projected top picks are playing in the NCAA Tournament.
In this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discuss which player the Wizards should draft. Scott is a big fan of Harrison Barnes of North Carolina, while Mike talked up Ohio State's Jared Sullinger. It will not be an easy choice, and it's a topic worth considering as the NCAA Tournament moves forward.
We also talk about Maryland's big recruiting week with Eric Prisbell of the Washington Post, check in on Nationals spring training with Ben Goessling of MASNSports.com and discuss the on-court Wizards product as it relates to the Oklahoma City Thunder. You can also catch the show at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning and other times throughout the weekend on 106.7 The Fan.
Here are the four segments.
The 2011 NCAA Tournament begins soon, and there are a number of local teams that should get bids. Most notably, George Mason and Georgetown are safely in the field, and semi-local teams like Virginia Tech, Old Dominion and RIchmond should be in as well. But it's also been a downer for local hoops recently, with Georgetown faltering due to Chris Wright's injury and George Mason falling in the semifinals of the CAA Tournament.
Looking back, will we say that this was a "successful" year for Washington D.C. college basketball? That's the question Mike Prada and Scott Jackson discuss in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan.
We also talk to Tarik El-Bashir, the Georgetown beat writer for the Washington Post, about the Hoyas' recent struggles, the Wright injury and their potential NCAA seed. Why has Wright's injury caused the Hoyas to fall off so bad? Will next year be painful for Hoyas fans? We discuss those questions and more.
We also talk to T.J. Doyle of SB Nation D.C. and Gheorghe the Blog about the two CAA teams in the NCAA picture and discuss the Capitals' goalie musical chairs with our own Adam Vingan. You can also catch the show at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning and other times throughout the weekend on 106.7 The Fan.
Here are the segments:
It was the end of an era in Washington D.C., as the Redskins released three players that were mainstays over the past few years. Andre Carter and Derrick Dockery didn't have a ton of staying power, but the move to let Clinton Portis go, while not surprising, still marks the end of one of the more memorable careers in recent D.C. sports history.
In that light, we discuss Clinton Portis' legacy in Washington D.C. in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. Scott Jackson and Mike Prada bring in Jack Anderson of SB Nation D.C. to add to the discussion after he wrote this piece on Portis. Would Portis be remembered more fondly if there was more stability in the organization? We discuss that issue and more this week.
We also discuss the Redskins' signing of O.J. Atogwe, note the moves the Capitals made on Monday with Adam Vingan of SB Nation D.C. and discuss whether George Mason can follow up its CAA regular-season title with a conference tournament championship. You can also catch the show at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan.
Here are the segments:
The Georgetown Hoyas had a devastating loss this week when point guard Chris Wright suffered a broken hand injury in the loss to Cincinnati on Wednesday. It's possible Wright will return in time for the NCAA Tournament, but it's still a huge blow to a team that was playing very well.
In this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada touch on the injury and what it means for Georgetown's hopes of going far in the NCAA Tournament. How will it affect their seeding? Is it as big a loss as if Austin Freeman went down? Is there any way the Hoyas can rally and surprise people without him?
We also talk about Gary Williams' strong postgame remarks against Maryland fans and the student newspaper following his team's win over Florida State on Wednesday. Was it wise of Williams to speak out against an ever-dwindling fanbase?
We also talk about the Wizards' move to trade Kirk Hinrich to the Atlanta Hawks, as Mike puts on his Wizards fan cap to break down the move with Scott. Plus, we talk the NFL Draft combine with Mike Jones of the Washington Post and Nationals spring training with Ben Goessling of MASN Sports. You can also catch the show at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan.
Here are the segments:
Nine years ago, Maryland was one of the top athletic programs in the country. The basketball team had just won the 2002 NCAA Championship, and the football team was just one year removed from rolling through the ACC and heading to the Orange Bowl. Typically, athletic programs use this success as a building block for the program.
Maryland, however, has taken several steps back recently. No team in recent memory has experienced less long-term success after a championship than Maryland basketball has. Barring a miracle run, the Terps will likely be going to their fourth NIT in seven years. Meanwhile, the football team's name recognition is so bad at this point that it was forced to promote its inside linebackers coach to defensive coordinator after being spurned by two top candidates. When and how did we get to this point.
Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discussed this topic in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. We talked about it among ourselves, then brought in Steve Yanda, Maryland's beat writer for the Washington Post, to talk about it more. We also discuss the Wizards at the All-Star Break with our own Michael Katz and the Capitals' need for a culture change with John Keeley (aka pucksandbrooks) of On Frozen Blog.
Here are the four segments:
According to the latest local television ratings, over 25 percent more people watch the Washington Capitals play than the Washington Wizards. Now, this is due in large part to the Capitals being good and the Wizards being terrible, but it does signal an interesting changing of the guard in this city. So what happens when/if the Wizards rebound and get better. Do they smash the Capitals in local ratings again? Do the Capitals still rise above them?
That's a topic Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discussed in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. What does the Capitals' success, combined with the failures of everyone else, mean for the future of this city as a sports town? We're curious to hear your thoughts on this one.
We also talk to SB Nation D.C.'s Daniel Shiferaw about the Redskins' offseason, preview the epic Wizards-Cavaliers toilet bowl with SB Nation's Cavaliers blog Fear the Sword and introduce you to the red-hot George Mason Patriots with Ryan Kish of GMUHoops.com. You can listen to the show at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan.
Here are the four segments.
This was a big week in D.C. sports, and it was also a big week on SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. In light of the surprising news that Redskins owner Dan Snyder is suing the Washington City Paper, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada talked to Washington City Paper editor Michael Schaffer about the story, the lawsuit and the whirlwind week he has had. For a transcript of key remarks from that section of the show, click here.
We also talked to Chris Miller of Comcast SportsNet about Gilbert Arenas and his return to Washington D.C. this weekend. Miller talked to Arenas for 90 minutes outside his Orlando home last week, which is airing in parts on Comcast SportsNet, so we got his take on whether Arenas has changed, what his frame of mind currently is and whether he is now starting to realize the gravity of what happened last year.
Oh yeah, and there's this big football event known as the Super Bowl coming up. We caught up with SBNation.com NFL editor Joel Thorman live from Dallas to get his take on the subdued lead-up to the big game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers. Also, we talked about Maryland's loss to Duke and what that means for its NCAA Tournament Chances.
You can listen to the show at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan. Here are the four segments.
Doesn't it seem like athletes listen to talk radio in this town a lot more than in other places? We saw this happen with the Redskins all season, and we saw it happen this week when Andray Blatche once again called into 106.7 The Fan after hearing criticism by fans of his play. Why does this happen so much in this town? Is it just us thinking this without it being true? Not that we're complaining, since it's good for us, but is it always good for the athlete?
We discuss that and more in this week's episode of 106.7 The Fan with Scott Jackson and Mike Prada. We also discuss Blatche's situation in general and whether the Wizards are being too soft on him. Mike certainly thinks so, and he wanted to get his two cents out there on the air too.
We also talk about Super Bowl XLV and what lessons the Redskins can learn from the Green Bay Packers with our own Daniel Shiferaw, the Senior Bowl and the Redskins with Rick Maese of the Washington Post and the Capitals' progress at the All-Star break with Joe Beninati, the voice of the team for Comcast SportsNet. You can check out the segments here or listen live on 106.7 The Fan at 7 a.m. Sunday mornings.
The Washington Wizards are now 0-20 on the road after losing to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. As Wizards fans, we're kind of stumped as to what's going on. Therefore, instead of pointing fingers, we at SB Nation Radio decided to think of ways that we, the fans, can help. Is there anything we can do to get the Wizards the road win we so desperately want them to get?
We discussed that issue in this week's episode on 106.7 The Fan. Scott Jackson and Mike Prada took some of your suggestions that you sent to us via Twitter and Facebook and dissected them on air. We also added a few of our own that we hope you will all enjoy.
Also, we talked to Ken Meringolo of Hogs Haven and SB Nation D.C. about why the Redskins should not take a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft, size up the local hoops teams' NCAA Tournament chances with Eric Prisbell of the Washington Post and recap a busy Nationals offseason with Ben Goessling of MASNSports.com. We also give our quick picks for this weekend's NFL championship games. You can check out the segments here or listen live on 106.7 The Fan after the Wizards game tonight and 7 a.m. Sunday mornings.
The Washington Capitals were supposed to be the winning team in this city. Instead, after a 3-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning and yet another loss to the Florida Panthers, they are having their problems. What's up with that?
We tackle that subject and more in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan. Is there a technical problem at play? Were they right to try to become more defensive-minded instead of playing to their strengths? Is there a psychological issue at play that has to do with fan expectations? Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discuss that issue on the show.
Also, we talk to John Keim of the Washington Examiner about the Redskins' NFL Draft prospects, bring in CSN Washington's Chris Miller to vent about the horrible Wizards' road start and talk to our own Adam Vingan about what technical issues the Capitals must solve. You can check out the segments here or listen live on 106.7 The Fan at 11 p.m. tonight and 7 a.m. Sunday mornings.
It's the new year, and SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan is back and geared up for 2011. After a two-week hiatus, the show returned this week with a bang.
In this week's episode, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discuss the Redskins' offseason, which in most cases has been more important than the season. We also bring in SB Nation D.C.'s Daniel Shiferaw to talk about that very topic and why the players seem so much more optimistic this year than last year. What should the Redskins' draft strategy be? Should they go offensive line by default, or draft the best player?
We also talk to Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog about the NHL Winter Classic and HBO 24/7 and bring in Patrick Stevens of D1Scourse (that's "discourse" with a 1) to talk about Maryland's hire of Randy Edsall and the Terps' big game against Duke tomorrow.
In the first segment, Mike and Scott talk about the Redskins' draft strategy. Should they pick a quarterback? Is there any way they can trade back?
In the second segment, Mike and Scott bring Daniel Shiferaw of SB Nation D.C. into the discussion. Why were the players so optimistic about the state of the organization after the final game? Was Mike Shanahan's first season a success?
In the second segment, Mike and Scott talk to Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog about the NHL Winter Classic and HBO 24/7. Why was HBO 24/7 such good television? Does the significance of the Winter Classic mean anything to the future of D.C. sports? Should the Winter Classic go in prime time? What other sports might work best on 24/7?
Finally, in our final segment, we talk to Patrick Stevens of D1Scourse about Maryland hiring former Connecticut coach Randy Edsall as its new head coach. Why did it happen so quickly? At what point did Mike Leach stop being the favorite? What makes Maryland so unique as a program? Also, we get in a quick word about Sunday's Maryland-Duke showdown.
You can also listen to the show Saturday Night after the Wizards' game and at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan or on 1067thefandc.com. You can also check out our show page here.
It's the holiday season, and Mike Shanahan clearly is in the giving spirit. Well, at least as far as Rex Grossman is concerned. On this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada try to figure out why Shanahan decided to bench Donovan McNabb. Is there any silver lining to this move? Is there a conspiracy theory that somehow explains Shanahan's rationale? What the heck is going on here?
Also, we talk about the Washington Capitals and the first episode of HBO's 24/7 series with J.P. from Japers Rink, go Behind Enemy Lines with Dave Halprin of SB Nation's Dallas Cowboys blog Blogging the Boys and try to help this city's underperforming sports teams come up with good New Year's Resolutions.
In the first segment, Mike and Scott discuss the Grossman/McNabb situation. Here Mike try to play Devil's Advocate and look for something to explain the decision, even if he knows there's nothing there.
In the second segment, Mike and Scott talk to J.P. of Japers Rink about the Capitals. What were J.P.'s impressions of the first episode of HBO 24/7? Did it reveal anything new about the team, or was it just a case of bad timing. Also, hear what he thinks the team needs to do to snap out of their recent losing streak.
In the third segment, Mike and Scott get into the holiday spirit with some New Year's Resolutions. Hear what wacky suggestions they have for the decision-makers of all four of D.C.'s professional teams.
Finally, we go Behind Enemy Lines with Dave Halprin of Blogging the Boys. Hear why Dave thinks the Redskins-Cowboys rivalry is dead, why the team has played so much better recently and why he's thrilled about the Grossman news.
You can also listen to the show at 11 p.m. Friday night, Saturday Night after the Wizards' game and at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan or on 1067thefandc.com. You can also check out the show right here.
Programming Note: We're taking off the next two weeks due to the holiday. The next show will be after the new year.
Not to beat a dead horse, but in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada talked a lot about Albert Haynesworth. I know, shocking, right? But we didn't just talk about Albert Haynesworth, because other big things happened in D.C. sports. Okay, fine, so we mostly talked about Albert Haynesworth. But what would you do if you were doing a radio show?
Anyway, in our first segment, Mike and Scott discuss whether the Haynesworth situation could have been handled differently. Should the Redskins have cut ties with Haynesworth earlier than they did? Isn't it interesting to look at which players are most vocal against Haynesworth. That and more in Segment 1.
In the second segment, we talk to Ken Meringolo of SB Nation D.C. and our Redskins blog Hogs Haven. Hear why Ken is relieved to have the Haynesworth saga finally end.
In the third segment, we talk to Ben Goessling of MASN about the other team that made big news this week: the Nationals. Hear Ben's take on the reaction to the Jayson Werth signing, where the Nats go from here and some funny stories and rumors from the Winter Meetings.
Finally, we go Behind Enemy Lines to talk about this Sunday's game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We talk to Craig Smith of SB Nation's Bucs blog Bucs Nation about the game, and we get the take from Bucs fans about the Bruce Allen era in Tampa.
Technically, the Washington Redskins are still alive in the race for the playoffs. Well, technically. In this week's episode of "SB Nation Radio" on 106.7 The Fan, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada shoot down the idea of the Redskins actually making the playoffs. In fact, as we both discuss, there might be a better chance of the wheels coming off, especially with a trip to New York to face the Giants on the horizon.
In the first segment, Scott and Mike discuss the Redskins' inability to run the football and debate whether the Redskins should bring Clinton Portis back next year, with a massive pay cut of course. Scott won that one. Scott also argues that the 2005 and 2007 playoff runs were bad for the Redskins. He lost that one. We also discuss Adam Dunn signing with the Chicago White Sox and why the Nationals made a mistake letting him go without getting anything in return other than a couple draft picks.
In the second segment, Scott and Mike talk to Rich Chvotkin, the radio voice of the Georgetown Hoyas for ESPN 980, about the Hoyas' fast start. Have the Hoyas changed to a more up-tempo style for good? Can Austin Freeman and Jason Clark keep up their hot play?
In the third segment, Scott and Mike talk to CSN Washington's Corey Masisak about the Capitals' big move to acquire Scott Hannan from the Colorado Avalanche. Hear why Corey thinks Hannan is a perfect fit and why this in-season trade is different than the other in-season trades the team has made over the years.
Finally, Scott and Mike go behind enemy lines with Ed Valentine, the editor of SB Nation New York and SB Nation's Giants blog Big Blue View. Listen to Mike prattle on about his 99 cent Devin Thomas mini-fathead purchase, and some actual analysis of the Giants from Ed.
You can also listen to the show live tonight after the Wizards game or 7 a.m. on Sunday morning on 106.7 The Fan. Go to 1067thefandc.com to listen if you are out of market, and also check out our show page.
The Washington Redskins had an eventful week, to say the least. First, they re-signed Donovan McNabb to a five-year contract. Then, they went out and laid an egg on Monday Night Football, falling 59-28 to the Philadelphia Eagles. With such an eventful week, it only made sense to talk about them.
That's exactly what we did in this week's episode of "SB Nation Radio" on 106.7 The Fan. Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discussed the Monday Night debacle, the new McNabb extension and whether Albert Haynesworth's laying on the ground routine was worse than Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche's stand-and-point routine. We also take a look ahead to next week's matchup with the Tennessee Titans.
In the first segment, Scott and Mike talk about Haynesworth, Blatche and the allegation that LaRon Landry spit at a Philadelphia Eagles player. Hear why they disagree over which no-effort routine was worse.
In the second segment, Mike and Scott talk to Brian Murphy of Hail! Magazine, Homer McFanboy and SB Nation D.C. about McNabb's new contract. Hear why Murphy is ticked off at media members for ignoring all the signs that McNabb would stay and why this was a very good deal for the team.
In the third segment, we talk to Brian Mitchell, a former Redskins great that currently hosts a show on 106.7 The Fanand is a studio analyst for Comcast SportsNet. Hear why Mitchell thinks the blame for Monday's debacle falls squarely on Mike Shanahan, and you also won't want to miss his unique take on the Landry-DeSean Jackson pregame war of words.
Finally, we talk to Jimmy Morris, webmaster of SB Nation's Tennessee Titans blog Music City Miracles. Jimmy breaks down the differences between Tennessee's 4-3 defense that made Haynesworth so successful and Washington's 3-4 defense that has been a disaster for him. Also, Jimmy discusses why the Titans have been struggling in recent weeks.
In this week's episode of "SB Nation Radio" on 106.7 The Fan, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada recap a week in D.C. sports that featured some really interesting stories. We talk about Clinton Portis wearing a Phillies hat and the strange outrage that it caused, discuss John Wall's triple-double and the strange outrage that caused with one ESPN radio host and, of course, discuss the King of strange in this town, Gilbert Arenas. We also discuss the Nationals' new uniforms, which, strangely enough, look kind of like last year's uniforms.
We also talk some college hoops with our own Jake Whitacre. What have we learned about Maryland in their first two games? Can Georgetown overcome its lack of depth up front. What other local teams will surprise people this season?
We also talk about the Capitals' hot streak with CSN Washington Capitals studio analyst Alan May. Hear why May believes Mike Green is the best defensemen in the NHL, and also relive May's epic prank on new Hall of Fame inductee Dino Ciccarelli.
Finally, we go behind enemy lines with Jim Kempski of SB Nation's Philadelphia Eagles blog Bleeding Green Nation. If you want to hear more about Donovan McNabb, we talk about that. If you're tired of hearing about Donovan McNabb, we talk about other things too.
You can also listen to the show on the air Sunday morning at 7 a.m. Go to 1067thefandc.com to listen live.
In this week's episode of "SB Nation Radio" on 106.7 The Fan, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada discuss what was a wild, wild weekend in sports. We talk about the Donovan McNabb situation with 106.7 The Fan Redskins beat reporter Grant Paulsen. What's the real truth behind Mike Shanahan's confusing press conferences? Will McNabb be back next season? Why does Detroit always bring out the worst in this team?
We also talk to Ken Meringolo of Hogs Haven about the Redskins' first half. Who has surprised and who has disappointed? What's the fan reaction to the McNabb move?
In non-Redskins stuff, we talk to Dave Tucker of SB Nation's Maryland blog Testudo Times about the Maryland basketball team. Are we offended that they aren't getting much national attention? Who will step up and replace Greivis Vasquez? Finally, Mike and Scott talk about John Wall's debut and Colin Cowherd' ridiculous rant about Wall's 34-second Dougie routine before the game.
You can also listen to the show on the air tonight at 11 p.m. and Sunday morning at 7 a.m. Go to 1067thefandc.com to listen live.
In this week's episode of "SB Nation Radio," on 106.7 The Fan, Scott Jackson and Mike Prada hit at a number of big D.C. sports topics during a busy week of action. The big story, of course, is the Redskins as they prepare for a classic trap game against the Detroit Lions, but we also talked about the Wizards' dreadful debut, the Capitals' uneven play and Maryland football's chances of making a bowl game and a dent in the ACC. You can check out each segment by clicking on the audio plug-ins below.
SEGMENT 1: Mike and Scott run down the biggest stories of the week. What do we make of Jim Haslett admitting that having Albert Haynesworth play in a 3-4 defense is like "getting a square peg in a round hole?" Is there reason to be concerned about Donovan McNabb's struggles at quarterback? We also talk about the Wizards' dreadful debut against the Orlando Magic.
SEGMENT 2: Mike and Scott talk to SB Nation D.C.'s Justin Creech about the Washington Capitals' struggles. Is there reason to be concerned that they still don't always put together 60-minute efforts? Is Michal Neuvirth the starting goalie for good, or will Bruce Boudreau's "hot goalie" philosophy come into play again? Just how well is Alex Ovechkin really playing?
SEGMENT 3: Mike and Scott talk to Eric Prisbell of the Washington Post about the state of the Maryland football team now. They are just one win away from becoming bowl-eligible, but is this a team that can really push the upper echelon of the ACC? We also talk about the Pete DeSouza cartoon fiasco in the Diamondback and touch on the significance of the basketball team landing top recruit Nick Faust.
SEGMENT 4: Mike and Scott go "behind enemy lines" to talk to Sean Yuille of SB Nation Detroit and SB Nation's Detroit Lions blog Pride of Detroit. Hear why Sean thinks the Lions are the best 1-5 team in NFL history and why he still thinks the Redskins will win on Sunday.
