“Griffin’s absence from the starting lineup could be as short as one week, and it could last until the start of next season. Either way, the plan is to try to get Griffin back to being the player he was in 2012, when he took the league by storm (and kept defenses off balance) with a perfect mixture of accurate passing and explosive running ability.”

Robert Griffin III is a bust. There, I said it. I do not like saying it. Hog Heaven is an RGFan. We were the first fan blogger to tout him as the next quarterback of your Washington Redskins, way back on December 6, 2011. Google found only two, 2, online images of him when we […]
Sometimes, these stories just write themselves.
The first matchup between Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III comes nearly three years after the two quarterbacks were taken with the first and second overall picks in the 2012 NFL Draft. Both quarterbacks were drafted with the hope that they could revitalize once proud franchises. The Colts were coming off a 2-14 campaign and […]
Albert Breer tweets that Robert Griffin III will start for the Redskins against the Colts. That is not news. What is noteworthy are responses to Breer’s tweet. They are universally negative, except that one that says the NFL is trying to ban a supplement that PROVIDES INSANE RESULTS. RG’s fall from grace has been a […]
Question: What do Redskins’ fans do to cheer up about football at this point? Answer: They watch the movie “Brian’s Song.” Seriously, watching RG3 is a tragedy. How can anyone with a heart not feel for the guy, for the team, for the coaches and most of all for the fans? So given how poorly […]
Today is Daniel Snyder’s 50th birthday. (h/t to Rick Snider for the reminder.) To know the Redskins era of Mr. Snyder’s formative years is to explain a good deal about his idea of building a team. The man is trying to recapture his childhood. Snyder was in his early teens when he fell in love […]
“Rapoport also reported that many special privileges that were afforded to Griffin’s wife and parents, such as access to places at training camp and Redskins Park where other players’ families were not allowed, are no longer available to them.”

I wondered why we heard so little from RG Jr. this season. Are we near the end game here?
Griffin’s contract runs through next season. The Redskins have until next May to declare if they are going to pick up his option year for 2016. That would pay him around $16 million. That’s a decent rate for a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback, which is what Griffin was in 2012. But it’s way too much for a learning, struggling player and they have six games left to gather enough evidence to figure out in which direction Griffin is headed.

Why are you people surprised at the Redskins performance? The Redskins average a fraction over seven wins per season. They have been that way since 1992. They are trending five wins this season — 66 percent better than last season. Hail to the Redskins! To hear fan rants on sports talk radio, fixing this team […]
We hit a new low when Donovan McNabb criticizes a Redskins head coach not named Shanahan. Coach Jay Gruden now says that his critical comments about Robert Griffin’s comments were inappropriate. He should not have thrown RGIII under the bus after Griffin seemingly did the same to his teammates after the loss to the forlorn […]
Indians of America, you must wake up before it’s too late. Public School Boards across the Nation are trying to remove your pride. This movement is happening in the NCAA as well as pro-sports. They want to make us a forgotten people, for whatever reason they have a large problem in saying our name or […]
We had a right to expect better. We have a right to demand more. We were bushwhacked by the magnitude of the suckitude. Robert Griffin III asserted his leadership last week. Talk is cheap. Actions speak. Recriminations have begun. NFL analyst Rodney Harrison on RGIII: I think you have to get rid of him. DC […]
After reports about Redskins’ Robert Griffin III possible termination arose in recent weeks, numerous sports sites, NFL experts and teammates have expressed their opinion about this rumor. Some fans wonder whether the ‘Skins would be better off by starting Colt McCoy. COLT MCCOY! According to NFL writer John Keim, the Redskins aren’t eager to extend […]
