NFL announces Redskins 2013 opponents

  The NFL announced the 2013 schedule for the NFC East division champion Washington Redskins. The St. Louis Rams are off the schedule because, for the first time in five seasons, neither the Redskins nor the Rams ended the regular season in division fourth place. Thus, they avoid playing fourth-place opponents. NFC East teams face […]

Cool stuff that happened since the Redskins’ last Super Bowl (January 26, 1992)

          •   Gopher morphed to become The Internet. •   Wikipedia was launched. •   MySpace fell and Facebook rose. •   Friends of Tanya Harding kneecapped Nancy Kerrigan. •   The Western Calendar entered the next Millennium and the Mayan Calendar ended.   •   After six seasons of trying, Norv Turner coached the Redskins […]

Redskins rivalry with Cowboys didn’t start with George Allen

The NFL missed the Cowboys vs. Redskins rivalry games. It's apparent by the joyous hype we see every day this week on the NFL Network and  Games were played, of course. Sometimes a team, usually the Redskins, would pull off a stunning upset, but those games lacked the winner-take-all aura of a playoff fight […]

Surgeon General to issue cardiac arrest warning on Redskins games

  If the headline was true, let's just say it's too little too late.  The Washington Redskins' six game winning streak has been anything but total domination of other teams.   Now that we head into a Dallas championship game, it's too tantalizing to just say "oh, we thought the season was over and we'd be […]

Redskins over Eagles 27-20, Christmas Eve Edition

  The NFL, as expected, flexed the Cowboys at Redskins game to prime time, 8:30 PM ET Sunday. The Redskins entered the season with an underwhelming TV schedule. The Thanksgiving Day game in Dallas was a highlight, but the league didn't see the pairing as anything special. It was just Washington's turn in the rotation. […]

How the Redskins may fall into the Eagles’ trap

The Redskins burst another bad habit last weekend with a win over the Browns in Cleveland and while being led by back up quarterback Kirk Cousins. So often in the Norv Turner – Daniel Snyder era, Washington played up or down to the level of the opponent, beating Super Bowl contending Packers one day, then […]

Bobby Three-Sticks heads list of clever nicknames for Redskins heroes

Clever nicknames are a sign that our local Redskins heroes are crossing into the public realm as cultural icons. Do any of the current Redskins have a handle that rivals Capt. Chaos that shall forever be tied to Chris Cooley? Here are a few candidates that arose with Washington's current winning streak. Bobby Three-Sticks – Robert […]

Jets’ Woody Johnson is the new Daniel Snyder, laughter follows

  There's a new sheriff in town and his name isn't Daniel Snyder. Hog Heaven readers know we respectfully refer to the Redskins team owner as "Mister" Snyder ever since he went along with Mike Shanahan's blockbuster trade to position the selection of Robert Griffin III. Fans in other places take an occasional potshot at […]

Is Rob Jackson the Alfred Morris of the Redskins’ defense?

  Many people, including myself, thought that Brian Orakpo's injury was a curtain call for the Redskins season.  Although we may have seen that a great pass rush is 40% of a good pass defense, I for one did not see the Rob Jackson freight train coming.   After all, Rob Jackson was a 7th […]
