The WTOP Sports team assembled just as news of Deshaun Watson’s 11-game suspension broke. What does the extended punishment say about the NFL? Also, is Washington’s preseason game in Kansas City a measuring stick game for the Commanders offense? We discuss how the truth about the Burgundy and Gold’s quarterback and running back positions will be revealed.

Also inside the D.C. Sports Huddle presented by MGM National Harbor: The Mystics-Storm WNBA playoff matchup isn’t just one rife with marquee names — it very well could be the de facto WNBA Finals. Can Washington dispatch of Seattle and bring home another championship? They certainly can if they follow our keys to victory!
