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 […]
Don’t even think about calling this post a criticism of Alfred Morris. It is about the Redskins brain trust. Tonight’s Cowboys at Bears game brings the remarkable Matt Forte to mind. Mid-Atlantic football fans tend to focus on LeSean McCoy who has similar talent, but Forte is a stud that has been more consistently versatile. […]
In a year that Washington Redskins fans may have learned that Robert Griffin III isn’t their franchise’s savor, missing out on the playoffs might not be the worst news they’ve heard. It still stings, but Washington will march into December in full evaluation mode and possibly even wondering if Colt McCoy could be the answer […]
The Washington Redskins threaten to repeat its 2013 three-win season. Thus, they are targets of cheat shot opportunity. The Redskins may have revealed something about 2015. Everybody missed it. Black Sports Online pounds them for using email and call-in numbers in its Cyber Monday sales campaign. To read between the lines, BSO questions why the […]
The Redskins lost to the Colts 49-27. There are two consolations. The Offense put up 27 points in a losing effort. We were spared Andrew Luck – Robert Griffin III comparisons. No one happier about that than RGIII himself. Three questions the Redskins community will take all week to answer: #1. Is it the Quarterback? […]
“Griffin’s absence from the starting lineup could be as short as one week, and it could last until the start of next season. Either way, the plan is to try to get Griffin back to being the player he was in 2012, when he took the league by storm (and kept defenses off balance) with a perfect mixture of accurate passing and explosive running ability.”

Robert Griffin III is a bust. There, I said it. I do not like saying it. Hog Heaven is an RGFan. We were the first fan blogger to tout him as the next quarterback of your Washington Redskins, way back on December 6, 2011. Google found only two, 2, online images of him when we […]
Sometimes, these stories just write themselves.
The first matchup between Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III comes nearly three years after the two quarterbacks were taken with the first and second overall picks in the 2012 NFL Draft. Both quarterbacks were drafted with the hope that they could revitalize once proud franchises. The Colts were coming off a 2-14 campaign and […]
Albert Breer tweets that Robert Griffin III will start for the Redskins against the Colts. That is not news. What is noteworthy are responses to Breer’s tweet. They are universally negative, except that one that says the NFL is trying to ban a supplement that PROVIDES INSANE RESULTS. RG’s fall from grace has been a […]
Question: What do Redskins’ fans do to cheer up about football at this point? Answer: They watch the movie “Brian’s Song.” Seriously, watching RG3 is a tragedy. How can anyone with a heart not feel for the guy, for the team, for the coaches and most of all for the fans? So given how poorly […]
Today is Daniel Snyder’s 50th birthday. (h/t to Rick Snider for the reminder.) To know the Redskins era of Mr. Snyder’s formative years is to explain a good deal about his idea of building a team. The man is trying to recapture his childhood. Snyder was in his early teens when he fell in love […]
“Rapoport also reported that many special privileges that were afforded to Griffin’s wife and parents, such as access to places at training camp and Redskins Park where other players’ families were not allowed, are no longer available to them.”

I wondered why we heard so little from RG Jr. this season. Are we near the end game here?
Griffin’s contract runs through next season. The Redskins have until next May to declare if they are going to pick up his option year for 2016. That would pay him around $16 million. That’s a decent rate for a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback, which is what Griffin was in 2012. But it’s way too much for a learning, struggling player and they have six games left to gather enough evidence to figure out in which direction Griffin is headed.
