The name game is the one thing Redskins’ fan base likes about Daniel Snyder

“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.”

Washington Redskins Second-Least Traveled Team During 2015 NFL Season

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 […]

Enough of Keith Olbermann, the Confederate flag and the Redskins

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 […]

NFL.com: The Redskins are a Top 5 QB franchise

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.

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.

The Cowboys sign former Baylor, former Redskins RB Lache Seastrunk

The Cowboys sign Lache Seastrunk. Redskins fans go Oh My!

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. […]

Will Gruden Haslettize the Redskins turnaround McPlan?

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 […]

Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan was snubbed for the 2015 Pro Bowl.

Ryan Kerrigan is the new face of the Redskins

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 […]

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 […]

Trent Williams, Ryan Kerrigan and the Redskins UDFAs — Scot’s formula

Scot McCloughan, the Redskins’ new superstar GM, has made it clear that he is excited about the undrafted free agents (UDFAs) available this year.  There are several that will show up in rookie camp this weekend. Standouts include Offensive Tackle Takoby Cofield, DE Corey Crawford, QB Conner Halliday, RB Trey Williams, TE Devin Mahina and […]

Jay Gruden Washington Redskins

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 […]

Redskins’ Most Expensive Tickets Of Season Are Away From Home

When the NFL scheduled was released last week, there are teams where you know who is lining up under center every week. But after a three-win season in 2013 and a four-win season in 2014 with a plethora of injuries at the quarterback position, the Washington Redskins do not have that luxury just yet of […]

Redskins GM Scot McCloughan

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 […]

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 […]
