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.
