Boomer Esiason Leaks Washington Football Team’s New Name

“Those watching the show on CBS Sports Network could see that Esiason had second thoughts about whether or not he should have said anything.”

How does the Washington Admirals sound to you?

The Washington Football Team is set to reveal its new name in February, but football fans in New York didn’t have to wait that long to learn the new moniker. Boomer Esiason let slip that the team formerly known as the Redskins will be called the Admirals beginning in the 2022 season.

On the Wednesday edition of Boomer & Gio on WFAN, Jerry Recco brought up the timeline for the team’s name reveal. Esiason then shouted out “Admirals!” When pressed for details, specifically, was this a guess or did he know for a fact that the team would be named the Washington Admirals, the former QB said “I’m reporting it’s the Admirals.”

Those watching the show on CBS Sports Network could see that Esiason had second thoughts about whether or not he should have said anything. Gregg Giannotti even asked if Boomer wished he could take that back.

That was the moment Boomer Esiason’s tone changed. He went from coy to unapologetic.

“Why? I can’t stand that organization anyway! Who cares, the organization sucks!” he said before listing all of the recent negative headlines surrounding the team.

After years of calls for the Redskins name to be retired, owner Daniel Snyder finally relented before the 2020 season. Many were skeptical about the timing of the decision, given that it coincided with the release of the Washington Post story that set the league’s investigation of the team in motion.

While Boomer Esiason is likely well-sourced within the league, Gregg Giannotti found a little more evidence to back up his partner’s claim. He revealed that for a brief period of time on Tuesday, typing WashingtonAdmirals.com into the search bar of your preferred web browser sent you to the Washington Football Team’s official website.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
