junkies from 106.7 the fan. happy wednesday, guys. >> good morning. >> i want to talk about the caps first of all. they lost again last night which you wouldn't think would be a big deal. last 10 games, a losing record of 4-5-1. should we worry? i don't know that you are super worried. six losses in the last nine. i'm not going to panic yet. i believe too early. it is a long, long, long season. you know, when they started off undefeated, i was getting killed because i said it doesn't matter. we know this soap is all about the playoffs. it is what happens in the post- season. the regular season is to position themselves. hopefully, they win the division, have home ice once the playoffs come but i wouldn't panic over losses in the middle of the season. >> it is a little disturbing the way they lost last night. by the time i went to bed, start of the third period, 0-0. look like it was okay. the caps actually score to go up and everything falls apart in the last four minutes. >> you don't like a late stage
5:51 am
collapse. >> that part hurts a bit but i think everybody is due for a bad game. vocou nu. had his. >> i'm concerned that he has to bench his stars every other night. >> he benched month, stemmons the other night i think that is a new attitude from bruce boudreau. he says if you're not performing and i don't think you're going to score a goal, you are agoing to sit on the bench. >> the a good point about the playoffs. so we'll see what happens there. redskins, just a quick update here as far as what is happening. the running gape has been getting attention this week. last three weeks, running backs have averaged 38 yards per game. >> that is what is disturbing, steve. >> pretty good if you ask me.
5:52 am
>> that is what mike shanahan's hallmark is. just pick any running back being plug them in. that hasn't worked. >> all the injuries along the offensive line and then there is the constant switching between torain, helu, hightower in the mix before he suffered the snee injury. he is not relying on one guy. we are seeing the results or lack of results. >> the season is over. he doesn't love ryan torain. that is obvious. let's see what roy helu can do. we're in that mode where we're starting to evaluate everybody. >> it is not like they're facing a good running back this week. demarco murray is only averaging seven yards a cary. >> he is only the best in the nfl over the last four weeksen so no big thing. >> can a bunch of guys from maryland at least appreciate what coach k was able to do last night down at duke? >> absolutely. >> we it k. appreciate it. you don't necessarily need to
5:53 am
glorify it. >> you think i'm going sit here and fawn over coach k. the coach at duke? that's not going to happen. >> give him credit. is it 903 wins now? >> a great accomplishment. >> let the durham news fawn over him and praise him all morning. >> not going to do it here in washington. >> just like to see not many of those 903 against maryland. >> if gare williams had that talent and he deserves credit, gare would have more than 904, 904 wins. he would have about a thousand. >> let's bring him back. they will need some help up there. thank you, guys. it's the junkies at 106.7 the fan. up next, video going viral. first, take a look at today's my fox half off deal. $29 for nearly $200 worth of services from guild's beauty.
