- Jay Gruden talks Commanders Ben Standig 51:33
The Athletic’s Ben Standig kicks off Week 2 of the NFL season with former Washington head coach — and weekly guest this season — Jay Gruden! We’ll also hear from Commanders safety Jeremy Reaves.
Ben opens the episode with the latest from practice, including an appearance by Brian Robinson, Kam Curl’s status, the new defensive lineman, and Reaves on the receiving room revolution during his five seasons.
Then it’s Gruden time (12:00). Jay shares his views on Carson Wentz’s debut and Washington’s pass rush. He also breaks down Jahan Dotson’s first touchdown catch and why Jamin Davis defended Christian Kirk at times. Plus Lions preview, Super Bowl contenders and what Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett was thinking on that end-of-game call.
(Forgot to mention in the episode that Jon Allen (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice, but that seems like a precaution.)
