Redskins tickets are in demand, as they should be with the improvement and success of the team. More people are turning to online sources to buy their tickets in order to avoid waiting in line other places or trying to make other arrangements. For the most part, this is an excellent thing, allowing tickets to […]
Last season was certainly one to forget for the Washington Redskins. After coming up well short of the playoffs, there are a lot of questions surrounding the franchise. The one most people can’t stop asking involves Robert Griffin III. He is no longer considered a young player, but he is regressing at quarterback. As we […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
“At 6-5, 319 he is the perfect addition for a team that is looking to move from a zone-blocking scheme to more of a power scheme. His drive blocking is exceptional, with a hard hit on initial contact and relentless drive.”
~ Rich Tandler, CSN Washington, speaking of Redskins first-round Draft pick, Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa.
Fans and media have dwelled on the wrong question about the Redskins picking up the fifth-year option on Robert Griffin III’s rookie contract. We have been asking, “Does RGIII deserve a $16 million salary?” If you are into Griffin-bashing, your answer was clearly “no.” Even if you are still hopeful about RG like we are, […]
“You can’t be somebody else. You need to accept who you are — and understand your style of play.”
~ Robert Griffin III from RG3 says he’s ready to “welcome the competition.”
