For Redskins 2015 success, Robert Griffin III and Jay Gruden must be as one

The cordiality we’ve seen thus far between Robert Griffin III and Jay Gruden will not cut it if the Redskins are to improve upon last year’s misery. To contend for a title, the quarterback and the head coach must forge a legendary partnership to become GG1, Griffin & Gruden as one. The pair must mind-meld like […]

Three Out Of Four Washington Redskins Preseason Get-in Prices Are Less Than $10

Year one of Jay Gruden’s tenure as head coach of the Washington Redskins did not show much improvement from the 3-13 record Washington put up in 2013. Another year of injuries to Robert Griffin III and inconsistency from backup Kirk Cousins led to a 4-12 season that didn’t show promise in many areas for the […]

The Ty Nsekhe test and the ‘new’ Redskins

The new preliminary, don’t take it too seriously, Redskins depth chart came out and the first name I rushed to see was Ty Nsekhe. It’s early, but I wanted to know if the same old cronyism is going on now that has happened with the roster for some time.  Do new, unheard of guys really […]

Is Akeem Davis the Aldrick Robinson of the Redskins secondary?

Man, I love Akeem Davis. But what choice do I have? When one reviews the changes that Gruden made this season, it’s as if he is reading articles like these and fan comments about the offensive line, the secondary, the lame pass rush, the inability to draft and groom talent, the lame coaches. (Sorry John […]

Will Robert Griffin III bounce back as a fantasy football king?

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 […]

The most depressing words you will read today about the Redskins

“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.

Washington Redskins Most And Least Expensive Games Against Miami and Atlanta

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 […]

Two things I know about Alfred Morris

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. […]

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.”

~ Chris Russell’s Blog, “The Redskins will be just fine,” from here.

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
