Is Trey Williams another Lache Seastrunk for the Redskins?

Trey Williams walks in Lache Seastrunk’s footsteps. Maybe. Redskins fans started drooling last year when they saw Redskins’ 6th round draft pick Lache Seastrunk’s highlights.  Pound the defense with Morris; fatigue them with Seastrunk’s monster cuts and acceleration. Well that dream ended in the same manner as most Redskins fans dreams, in the dumpster.  Not […]

How this year’s Redskins draft suggests Gruden’s fatal mistake last season

Tough, big guys that love football and have great, consistent character was the theme of this year’s draft.  What it suggests is how someone as smart and yet inexperienced as Jay Gruden got duped last season. Gruden inherited an RG3 team that had one winning season and one horrific season.  Which was the norm and […]

Scot McCloughan’s sneaky-good trade with Seahawks

Chase Stuart of footballperspective.com writes that Redskins GM Scot McCloughan worked a hellava NFL Draft deal in that trade with the Seahawks. Washington traded the 69th pick to Seattle for the 95th (3rd), 112th (4th), 167th (5th), and 181st (6th) picks. McCloughan achieved his goal of snagging 10 Draft picks. He did it without trading […]

In Brandon Scherff, “best available” meets Redskins’ need

To most fans, it appeared that Scot McCloughan abandoned best player available when he bypassed DL Leonard Williams to select OT Brandon Scherff. Williams ranked higher on mock drafts by the likes of Mike Mayock and Mel Kiper, Jr.; but then, not one NFL GM participates in those things. Sports talk radio 106.7 reported that […]

“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 […]
