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.
