Down here in DC, we are fond of saying Robert Griffin III should start because he has the “higher ceiling” than Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy. Hog Heaven is a Griffin supporter, but even we know that notion is out of date. Griffin has the higher ceiling if his coach (and he) design an offense […]
The Redskins re-signed quarterback Colt McCoy to a one-year deal says reports on ESPN and NFL.com. Yes, Hog Heaven did think this was another social media prank when we first read it. McCoy joined the Redskins in 2014 as a camp arm to round out training cap squads. The 49ers released him to keep Blaine […]
“We’re winning off the field” has finally turned into “we’re winning in the offseason.” Good things portend a few years down the road. Redskins fans haven’t seen a professionally managed offseason like this in decades. The big question for the upcoming year is the maturity of Gruden and RG3. Will both mature or neither? If […]
Some Redskins fans see stories that the Redskins might draft Marcus Mariota as “proof” of a plot to land Sam Bradford from the Eagles. [Face palm] Oh, where to begin? No legit media source carried the story. Eagles coach Chip Kelly debunked the idea at his press conference today. The thought took flight with some […]
Nature hates a vacuum and Redskins fans hate an offseason that does not involve a big name. Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota is the newest addition to the mix that includes Ndomhkong Suh and Vic Fangio. ESPN’s John Clayton bluntly says that The Redskins will not pass on Mariota if he falls to them in […]
Hog Heaven believes Haynesworth. Why is Albert Haynesworth better than Mike Shanahan? Because unlike Shanahan, he has drawn our attention away from amped up coverage of RGIII without using the words “Robert Griffin the Third.” He brought up the other hot-button name, Ndamukong Suh. Follow the link at the end of this post if you want […]
Say this for Ndamukong Suh. He has driven fixation with Robert Griffin III off the radar screen of Redskins fans. That’s a blessing for RGIII. But fans are aghast at the news that the team is interested in Kong Suh. They invariably compare Suh to Albert Haynesworth. That Fat Albert adventure still packs a traumatic […]
Even if you are not a football fan or even care about Native American issues, you have likely heard about the Washington Redskins name “issue.” On one side we have a group that believes the name of a football team is the reason racism exists in this country and that it causes internalized oppression. They […]
Need a look back at the trade that brought us Robert Griffin III? Paul Kuharksy, who covers the Titans for ESPN.com, did the hard work for us with his recap of trades out of the top five Draft picks over the last 10 years. Here is what he said about the 2012 swap the Redskins […]
The first year for the Washington Redskins under Jay Gruden was tumultuous. Their 4-12 record was a one game improvement from 2013, but not many answers appeared for the same questions that have been around the team for multiple seasons. The Redskins saw Robert Griffin III get injured again in 2014 in week two, only […]
Mark Tyler is wrong. He writes The Time to Trade Kirk Cousins is Now in his post on Hog Haven. Tyler writes like a Cousins fan miffed at the news that Robert Griffin Iii enters 2015 season at the top of the Redskins QB depth chart. “…and all Cousins really needs is the backing of […]
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden spoke at a press conference in Indianapolis this afternoon. Here’s the nine-minute video clip courtesy of Redskins.com or YouTube. Here are the big points. Robert Griffin III may not be the face of the franchise, but he enters the season as the starting quarterback. “It’s up to Robert to continue to grow […]
What happens when you combine the words “Cousins,” “Gruden” and “offseason drills?” You get crappy DC Sports Bog stories like “Kirk Cousins is doing offseason drills with Jon Gruden.” Hey, drawing highly speculative conclusions from football factoids in the desert between the Super Bowl and the NFL Combine is my job. Draw no speculative conclusions […]
“As for ‘mature’ organizations, ‘They know who they are,’ Sundquist said. ‘They know what message they want to send. They’re willing to make decisions, good and bad, and stand up for those decisions. They’re not knee-jerk when the first criticism comes through. They’re strong enough to deal with pushback.’”
~ Former Broncos executive Ted Sundquist as quoted by Bleacher Report.
Someday, a statement like this may describe the Redskins.
~ Longtime Redskins fan Hog Heaven.
What is the best way to announce Robert Griffin III’s baby to the thousands of fans that bought him wedding gifts? Why, you tweet the news, of course. RG IV should arrive about mid season (we are guessing), in time to provide incentive for daddy to excel on the field. That would be good news […]
