So, the latest story to rile Redskins fans is that Robert Griffin III is “done” because he compares himself to Peyton. According to this story on BusinessInsider.com that cited ESPN Insiders QB ranking: “To get better in this league, you have to have a degree of humility. Griffin sees himself like Peyton, in that light. […]
“You can’t rule out the possibility that this dysfunctional franchise would fire Gruden and hire another coach to save Griffin, but the damage otherwise seems complete. Griffin would surprise the football world if he remains the Redskins’ starter into 2016, at least based on merit. Consider this season an epilogue to a dysfunctional period, one that leads to a sequel that carries at least a bit more promise.”
~ Kevin Siefert, RGIII deserves a shot outside of D.C.
As a Redskins fan, I prefer to be in denial about this in hopes for a better outcome.
Any success the Washington Redskins find during the 2015 NFL season will once again start and end with would-be franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III. That could be having fans optimistic or downtrodden, depending on their perspective. Thinking back to last season, when RG3 was generally either hurt or playing poorly, Redskins fan surely wouldn’t be […]
Those sharp-eyed bloggers at fatmanwriting.com caught a story that our boy Alfred Morris agrees with ESPN that he is not elite. That comes as a shock to most Redskins fans who, like all fans, see their team as the greatest because their players are the best. Here are two things Hog Heaven observed about Alfred. […]
One video snip sums up everything Hog Heaven feels about Keith Olberman:
“The Redskins have the NFL’s backing, they have previous rulings and this is the one subject that their fan base almost completely supports.
“A fan base that is sick and tired of the constant losing and dysfunction. A fan base that has no faith in the top officials (outside of Scot McCloughan) within the organization to turn it around on a consistent basis. A fan base that somehow supports the product year-in and year-out in astonishing numbers and passion levels.
“This is the one true connection the Redskins have with their customers and supporters.”
~ Chris Russell’s Blog, “The Redskins will be just fine,” from here.
The Washington Redskins are on a quest to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012, when quarterback Robert Griffin III was a rookie. Not a lot has gone right since then, as injuries have derailed their plans of being a contender year-in and year-out. Before training camp begins and roster positions are fought […]
It’s cheap shot season when lazy thinkers like Keith Olbermann (sadly) contrive links of the Washington Redskins team name to the Confederate flag – a symbol to many (me) of the defense of slavery, race supremacy and murder. Well… I have never seen a Redskins flag at a KKK rally. Nor have the Redskins ever […]
Here’s an eye-opener for you. Your Washington Redskins rank as a Top 5 QB franchise. NFL.com analyst Elliot Harrison gave the team fifth place in a countdown of all 32 NFL franchises after evaluating the top three quarterbacks in the history of each team. Harrison selected icons Sammy Baugh, Sonny Jurgensen and Joe Theismann when […]
Former Redskins Matt Bowen on what to
expect hope for in Washington’s passing game.
Every part of the Redskins offense declined with Coach Jay Gruden’s arrival. Bowen says Bill Callahan and the position switch of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson improve the passing game.

Today comes news that the hated Cowboys have signed RB Lache Seastrunk to the roster. That caused a minor conniption among the Redskins faithful. The narrative once was that Seastrunk would be an explosive change of pace to Alfred Morris that no defense could withstand. In a perfect Al Davis world, that might have happened. […]
Getting excited during the Redskins preseason is like a freshman boy in high school getting excited about a senior varsity cheerleader smiling at him. You can dream, but it ain’t going to happen. The Redskins are, well, still the Redskins. For all the PC nuts, the real insult is not the name, but just how […]
Fans want Ryan Kerrigan to grace the cover of their Facebook page more than any other Redskins player. The Redskins created downloadable profile covers that fans may install on their Facebook page. The covers feature six players and it is an informal measure of player popularity. Kerrigan’s was the most downloaded cover by a wide […]
for telling her defenseless kid that he will play for the Giants.
Oh, the humanity!
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 […]
