Hold up on that contract for Brian Orakpo, Redskins fans. He should get it. Probably will get it. But not yet. No reason to now. There is one big “what if” the Redskins must decide on before dealing for Rack. Nobody is talking about the what-if. They are talking about whether Orakpo is overpaid, or […]
You cannot read a story about the Redskins improving without mentioning Robert Griffin III. We get it. But here are five reasons why the Redskins will be better this season that don’t mention the boy wunderkind. Some you haven’t thought of. No.1 The Redskins play a fourth-place schedule this year. Say hello to the Tampa […]
“He looked 100 percent healthy. I didn’t let up on him and, boy, he kept coming — and he reminded me of the old Robert Griffin that I knew coming out of Baylor for those eight-10 weeks we worked together in 2012.
“He could have very easily lost it given the year he had. I put him through a gantlet of drills. And Robert made all the throws, showing great skills. It sure appeared to me that he took that next step as a pocket passer.
“I liked everything I saw. When we finished, he was ready to play.”
Shea worked with Griffin and a group of Washington Redskins receivers during the last week of March in Arizona.
The Redskins want me back. They just emailed the 2014 invitation to me as a former season ticket holder to get back in the game and order tickets now. Here are two things interesting about it. First, this wasn’t an invitation to get on the waiting list. It was an invite to buy tickets right […]
This story contributed by Scott Hirsch Last year’s draft was far more important for the success of this season than this year’s draft will be (good news – it was a good one minus Jamison). A lot of what happens this year’s draft depends on how the following relative newbies look this Spring ̶ Tom […]
This post written by Scott Hirsch. Before we get excited about the Redskins in 2014, it’s important to understand what went wrong in 2013. By now we are familiar with the Shannahan-agans that went on – ego that rewarded assistant coaching jobs for ‘yes men’ (actually ball boys), the most predictable offense in the league, […]
“A lot of people were rolling their eyes over the weekend when Robert Griffin III pumped up his new Instagram account on Saturday and used it to introduce his new logo on Sunday. Oh well. Still much better than a year ago when his tweets were veiled messages and we kept hearing that he was “ahead of schedule” on his knee rehab. I’ll take an overhyped logo unveiling any day.”

“Another influence was my boy Durant. Kevin Durant been calling me, he been calling and saying ‘man you know how I’d go crazy for you to be in D.C.’ I mean, what better place is there for me to be? I’m happy to be here. I’m glad, man, honestly I can say that”

The Redskins are holding the final auditions to select the 2014 class of the First Ladies of Football Sunday, April 6. They’ve offered you Hog Heaven readers and Redskins fans a chance to vote for the rookie members. I want to vote for “all of the above.” They only let you vote for three. Meh. […]
News that the Washington Redskins inked QB Colt McCoy to a deal reminds me of a joke I heard somewhere along the way. Colt McCoy heard screams for help as he was walking along a lake shore in Texas. He saw a woman and two little babies in a sinking boat half a mile off […]
This is going to be psycho-babble, so stop here if you are not into that, but please stay and hear me out. Riley Freeman made the Eagles uncomfortable in ways that Riley Cooper did not. Stay with me. Like everyone else outside of eastern Pennsylvania, Hog Heaven cannot fathom the reasons that the Philadelphia Eagles […]
Jackson tweeted his announcement a few minutes after midnight April 2. Thank gawd it wasn’t on April Fool’s Day. Yes, I am football superstitious. Whatever your feelings about MeSean — Hog Heaven offers his qualified approval — Jackson’s presence makes the Redskins a division contender once again. Our reservations hover on DJax’s flighty, high-maintenance persona […]
It’s April 1 and there are a ton of fairy tales about precisely why DeSean Jackson is a free agent today. Hog Heaven turned to one of its most trusted blogging friends for some sanity on why DJax is on the street now. Tom Jackson of Eagle Eye blog offers an insightful take. “It appears […]

The team has been pursuing their starting safety from 2004-2005 since shortly after the start of free agency but they have been unable to get a deal together.
According to multiple media reports, Clark has agreed to a one-year contract to return to Washington.
