The Washington Football Talk podcast is anchored by NBC Sports Washington's Washington Football Insider JP Finlay and highlights all members of our coverage team including Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey along with plenty of others. Finlay will also reach out to a host of outside influencers both in the D.C. media and the national landscape. With a strong set of personal relationships built on years covering the team, Finlay brings a fresh and engaging style to interviews with players, coaches and alumni for the podcast.
JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey have a classic, all-over-the-place but very useful Washington Football Talk here for you, and it begins with a deep dive into what's going on at QB. In that segment, the guys try to estimate the odds of Taylor Heinicke starting over Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 1, and JP tries to figure out Pete's exact stance on Fitzy. After exhausting that angle, JP runs through a story he wrote that looked at a whole bunch of random topics relating to the Burgundy and Gold with training camp a month-plus away, and he allows Pete and Mitch to react to some of his points. Once that ends, they toss to their interview with rookie corner Benjamin St-Juste, who was really impressive in terms of his professionalism, attitude and opinion on taxes. Then, to close, you'll get a US Open preview and a harrowing tale from Pete that involves choking on rice. If you like podcasts where JP invokes the legendary Ron Swanson and Pete just BOTCHES an Ernest Hemingway reference, then this is the episode for you.
