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.
Saturday was a wild one, and Redskins Talk is here to recap it. First, JP Finlay, Mitch Tischler and Pete Hailey explain how the Trent Williams saga finally concluded, and in doing so, have discussions on what the trade shows about the franchise, what to expect from Saahdiq Charles and the multiple ways in which fans should still be grateful for Trent, even after this messy last year. Eventually, the guys are able to move on to what Washington did on Day 3 of the draft and the draft as a whole, holding segments on their favorite picks as well as the ones they feel like may not deliver. Then, to close out their portion, they — along with producer Tim Shovers and NBC Sports Washington legend Gary Carter — identify their top moments from the past weekend, in which they all give very different answers. Carter, by the way, also talks a lot in the earlier portions of the ep, even though he wasn't supposed to. Once your hosts depart, you'll hear a Thomas Davis interview from Thursday (48:18), a chat that came before the Chase Young pick but one that is still worth revisiting. And lastly, there's full audio from Ron Rivera and Kyle Smith's Saturday night presser (52:40) with the local media, where they wrap up all that they accomplished. If you like podcasts where Pete isn't the most bullied person for once and JP's daughter makes a very precious appearance, then this is the episode for you.
