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 were in Ashburn for the opening practice of Washington minicamp — and so was Chase Young. So, that's where the hosts begin, reacting to Young's return to the field. After that, they chat about how Antonio Gibson is looking as well as the team's running back depth overall. Next, there's some Curtis Samuel injury talk. Then, JP and Pete go back and forth on whether Adam Humphries is a roster lock or not, which is a segment that actually dragged on for quite a while (which won't shock regular listeners). To close, the guys identify the One Thing that stood out to them from Tuesday's action before tossing to Mitch and Pete's interview with rookie safety Darrick Forrest, who reveals the impact he's having on special teams in addition to defense and also gives his stamp of approval on the nickname JP's been pushing for. If you like podcasts where Pete is loud wrong on how to pronounce a certain word and JP comes clean on the day he skipped high school football practice, then this is the episode for you.
