Charles Robinson, Jory Epstein and Charles McDonald offer their analyzes of the latest news about the NFL — including the Washington captains naming Sam Howell as their starter — and offer their biggest takeaways from the New York Jets’ training camp after visiting last week. The trio rounds out the show with the biggest takeaways so far this season: Jori on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB rivalry, Charles Robinson on the NFL’s offensive line issue and Charles McDonald on the Carolina Panthers and whether or not they can protect Bryce Young.

4:25 – Sam Howell has been named the starting quarterback for the Leaders, and while Robinson loves the move, McDonald doesn’t see how Howell is a better option over Jacoby Brissett. Charles debates which QB is the better choice in the long term and short term.

20:10 – Jets training camp recap: Gorey was concerned with Dalvin Cook’s lack of energy in his first press conference as a Jet, while McDonald was concerned about their offensive tackle stance, specifically how they plan to make the most of Mekhi Picton this season.

29:40 – Preseason Takeaway: Charles Robinson thinks the NFL has a problem with the offensive line. There are fewer and fewer prospects coming out of college ready to pass protection in the NFL, and that puts a huge premium on a good coaching. McDonald offers his thoughts on what has changed in recent years to cause this problem.

44:50 – Gorey wonders if it’s time to worry the Buccaneers haven’t named the starting QB between Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask. There is no sign of a decision being made although players have expressed their frustration. It’s important for initiating offenses to have time to get on the same page – it’s strange that it takes this long.

53:05 – C Mac doesn’t like what he’s seen from the Panthers offensive line so far, and he’s wondering if they’ll be able to protect their rookie, Bryce Young. Young is already younger than the position, and Carolina just doesn’t have the weapons in the skill positions to make up for the deficiencies that prevent them from making passes.
