The NBA is back and the Wizards should be a team to challenge for the Lebron-less Eastern Conference crown along with the Raptors, Celtics, and maybe… the Bucks?! Well, Joe thinks so encourage #DCfamily to not lose hope after a slow start to the season for the Wiz. Justin (@jusblaze_513) from the Above the Rim Podcast joins the show to talk about the big storylines across the NBA through the first full week of the season and share his thoughts on the Rockets, Lakers, Wizards, Warriors, Celtics, Raptors, and one bold prediction that the Lakers will miss the playoffs even if fully healthy! Joe shares some insight into why EVERY team in the NBA is scoring over 100pts per game and asks if it is sustainable? Can anyone stop the Pelicans? Warriors may need help sooner rather than later, plus so much more! If you love the NBA, you will love this episode of the DTC podcast!
FP, Stevie, Razzle, and Joe talk about the Redskins big win against the Panthers… it was ugly, but a win is a win! Alex Smith didn’t look great but the offense scored some touchdown’s and the running game was solid. Josh Norman played maybe his best game as a Redskin and hey, sitting in first in the division is never a bad thing! #HAIL to the #REDSKINS #HTTR #HailVictory
The Colts are coming to DC and the Redskins are ready for them! Stevie, FP, LP, and Joe breakdown the week two matchup, give their keys to the game, and spotlight a few players on offense and defense that they expect to be the difference makers. The crew also discuss the end of an era as the Redskins sell-out streak of 50 years is expected to end and what the impact of a potential hurricane could be on the game. In part two, starting at 23:45, Matt Danely, Sr Writer and Podcast Host at SBNation’s Stampede Blue joins DTC to share insights into this Colts team that most casual and even hardcore NFL fans don’t know much about. There is a lot of info packed into this extended show that ends with game predictions… spoiler alert, everybody has the Redskins winning, but by very different margins, and for very different reasons! Tune in and share!
Joe and Stevie are live and ready to go talking about the end of the Gio era with the Nationals, the reasons why the season went so poorly, and what to expect in the coming months as Rizzo prepares for 2019. The duo also discuss Nike and the 20th anniversary of the “Just Do It” campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick and his afro, before shifting gears to discuss the NFL season at-large as it begins anew with a terrible Ealges Falcons game and a bunch of duds on the schedule for Sunday as well. For the record, Joe and Stevie both agree, Nike made a mistake with this ad campaign but for two very different reasons… tune in to find out!
Stevie and Joe talk about the Nationals big win off the big bat of recently called up Andrew Stevenson, if the season is actually over, and if the manager is safe while looking forward to next season… although Steve is in denial and still believes the Nats have something left. The boys also discuss if Mad Max can maintain his form for one or two more seasons, what may happen with Harper, and expectations for Strassie as he takes the mound again tonight. The show concludes with a pointed discussion on both the Ohio State and Maryland football situations with Urban and DJ in the spotlight and what may/should happen moving forward and why both stories will impact football long term!
