The Redskins want to sign Hog Heaven to a contract

“Your wait is nearly over,” says the Washington Redskins in an email inviting me to take a survey to find the perfect seats for me. Hog Heaven dropped the family season tickets after 48 years after sensing we were funding management incompetence that made the team impervious to improvement at the top. Five years later, it’s […]

Robert Griffin III just can’t win

No matter what Robert Griffin III says, or not say, people react to the extreme. RGIII appeared on a segment of Redskins Nation that the team intended to hype the fans and rehabilitate RG’s image. Meaning, the team coached him to say all the right things, like: “It’s not about talking about it; it’s about […]

Redskins put the band back together. Re-sign Colt McCoy.

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 […]

Redskins are winning in the offseason, but are we maturing?

“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 […]

The silly Sam Bradford to the Redskins conspiracy is just silly

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 […]

Marcus Mariota to the Redskins almost makes sense, except for Gruden.

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 […]

Albert Haynesworth

Who ya gonna believe, Worthless or the Redskins?

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 […]

The Redskins: Ndamukong Suh and lessons from Albert Haynesworth

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 […]

The Washington Redskins: Team, Term and Truth

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 […]

Second thoughts on the trade that brought us Robert Griffin III

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 […]

Washington Redskins schedule preview

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 […]

5 reasons why the Redskins will not trade Kirk Cousins

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 […]
