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 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 […]
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. […]
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.”

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. ~Erma Bombeck

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 […]
