Michael Vick spoke his wistful thought that a place on the Redskins roster would be the ideal end to his career. It could work. The social media reaction was a unanimous “oh HECK no.” Somebody out there (you know who you are) thinks this would be a great idea, but the notion is a non-starter […]
Hog Heaven is a long-time Daniel Snyder critic. You know this if you are a regular reader. (Thank you for that.) Our comments are not Snyder hate. We like that he grew up a Redskins fan. We do not have an out of town owner who is a threat to move the team, or who […]
Aside from the opportunity to play spoiler, or position themselves for the 2015 NFL draft, the Washington Redskins don’t have much to play for heading into Week 16. While there is uncertainty and disappointment surrounding D.C. these days, the Redskins still have a chance to end 2014 on a high note. And if they can’t […]

Firing Gruden after one season with Washington would be the least productive, most destructive action the Redskins could make at this moment. It protects us from Daniel Snyder making a football decision. Snyder spent this season paying two head coaches, Gruden and the final year of Mike Shanahan’s contract. It would be destructive to pay […]
“It sucks, man. I’ll do better next time in that situation, but I hope this team can learn something from that.
“I was excited, man, and when I saw the call overturned — it only happens to us. It feels like every time we do something good, something bad comes out of it, and it’s only been happening to us.
“It’s been 10 years of this, so I just got carried away, and I let that get the best of me, and I know better.”
~ Redskins receiver Santana Moss explaining his outburst when replay officials in Giants game reversed Robert Griffin III’s touchdown, from here.
Redskins’ followers are having heartburn over Robert Griffin’s touchdown score that was reversed. Like Santana Moss, they are losing their heads when they should be keeping it. Here are four points to remember. No. 1 — It did not affect the outcome of the game The reversal came at the end of the half, not […]
Hog Heaven wonders how the odds change for Washington in the Redskins at Giants game based on who starts at quarterback. Paul Bessire of PredictionMaching.com answers. The Breakdown: Colt McCoy starts for Washington in our projected box score. In this matchup, Robert Griffin III would actually be a slight upgrade given his running prowess and […]
For all the hype the Redskins (and the rest of us) put on quarterbacks* and skill players, Washington’s Golden Age teams featured muscle men. One of them, Big Dave Butz (Purdue), has been elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. “Big Dave,” we heard that spoken so often by TV announcers that I sometimes […]
The New York Giants and Washington Redskins face off in Week 15 with no playoff positioning on the line. While that’s a disappointment for both sides, at least it allows the focus to be on this historic bitter rivalry. If nothing else, the Giants and Redskins will battle it out to try to keep out […]
The Philadelphia Eagles (9-4) tied for the division lead in NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys as they look to get back to their winning ways after a tough loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The Eagles fourth-ranked offense travels to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland to take on the Washington Redskins (3-9) on Sunday, December 20th. […]
“And former Redskin London Fletcher attacking defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was pure nonsense. Haslett kept Fletcher in 2013 when the rest of the staff wanted the linebacker gone. Haslett even kept Fletcher’s starting streak going despite poor play. Yet, Fletcher backstabbed Haslett. Says a lot about the person with the knife.”

To most people, history began the day they were born. There are always threads from the past to today. The Rams bombed the Redskins 24-0. It’s worth remembering that 73 years ago today, the Empire of Japan did the same to the United States of America. President Roosevelt did not attend the Eagles-Redskins game that […]
Wait. Daniel Snyder has all that money to pay fired coaches, but not enough to hire a frickin’ quarterback coach? Jason Reid from the Washington Paper speculates (repeat: speculates) that Redskins head coach Jay Gruden could be fired if team president Bruce Allen and owner Daniel Snyder force his hand on Robert Griffin III. SI.com […]
WAIT! Time out. This Gruden vs. Griffin conflict has the feel Shanahan vs. Griffin v2014. Who are you going to back this time, Daniel Snyder? The coach or the savior of Redskins football? Jason Reid’s column in today’s Washington Paper makes clear that Jay Gruden reached the same boiling point with RG that Mike Shanahan […]
