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.
