LATEST STORIES FROM REDSKINS HOG HEAVEN

Bashaud Breeland, David Amerson and the future of NFL Cornerbacks

Beating the Cowboys is huge, enough to justify even a bad season.  It’s even bigger to beat them in Dallas.  Even bigger than that is doing it Monday Night Football.  Even bigger than that is being the unanimous underdog. The biggest shocker however was the incredible performance by rookie Bashaud Breeland and 2nd year newbie David Amerson against perhaps the best offense in...

How the Redskins can beat the Cowboys

Let’s be real. The Redskins are awful and the Cowboys are looking great with the best record in the NFL. Yet the Redskins can beat the Cowboys using ‘guerrilla’ football tactics.  Some Redskins’ old time fans remember the season the Redskins were dominating and threatened to have an undefeated season with just two games left.  Those two games were against pushover teams...

Brian Orakpo is not done in DC, Redskins fans

Gee, to go by social media, Brian Orakpo is done in DC. Schoolchildren and sports fans can be so cruel. Orakpo is lost to the Redskins for the season after tearing his right pectoral muscle in the Titans game. He twice tore his left pectoral muscle. It led to the loss of substantial time in 2011. Then the injury forced him to miss 14 games in 2012. The twitterverse reacted with glee...

News to some Redskins fans: Orakpo loss a “major blow”

“His production may not be where people think it should be but he’s still been playing very good against the run and has been disruptive in the passing game and that will be a big loss.” ~ Jay Gruden speaking of Brian Orakpo

2011 Draft shows Jerry Jones may be the smartest owner in the NFC East

One of the joys of being an NFL fan is to laugh at Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder. It’s no laughing matter to Cowboys and Redskins fans. We see those owners as the biggest obstacle to their team’s success. The Cowboys’ eye-opening 5-1 start appears to be linked to their Draft strategy, which may change our perceptions of Jones. You form your conclusions about a Draft class after...

What next for the Washington Redskins? Read this.

Just when you think the Redskins could not get any worse, they open the season 1-5. Fans have the luxury of giving into despair. Players do not. There are 10 games left. Time enough to prove that a down team is not OUT. Here’s what key players can do right now to make things better. Coaches tell them the football stuff. This is what should be going on in their heads.

Ticket prices down 14% For Redskins’ visit to Arizona

The Arizona Cardinals’ magical undefeated ride ended in Week 6 with a loss to the Denver Broncos. In Week 6, they’ll look to get back up, dust themselves off and try to get to 4-1. The hope is quarterback Carson Palmer is back under center after missing three straight games with a nerve issue in his shoulder. If he can, the Cards’ look to have a good shot to top the visiting...

A look at the upcoming Redskins schedule

It was just a little less than two weeks ago that Washington Redskins fans were praising backup quarterback Kirk Cousins and calling for him to be the long-term starter over Robert Griffin III. Oh, the difference time can make. After a dreadful week four showing and an okay performance this past Monday evening against the Seattle Seahawks, Cousins now has to quickly regain the trust...

The Real Story Behind the Seattle Loss

It’s not that Redskins season is over (it is). It’s not that the Redskins still need to find their identity (they have one – they are a very good, bad team). It’s not that the Offensive Line is the weak link of the team (everyone knows it is). The real story behind the scenes was the painful fact of watching third round pick Russell Wilson demonstrate that he forever will...

Kirk Cousins vs. Russell Wilson: College Edition

Before Kirk Cousins dueled Russell Wilson in the NFL (Cousins stepped in for an injured RGIII in that infamous 2012 playoff game), they shared a remarkable duel in the Michigan State – Wisconsin series. I have an academic attachment to both schools and watched these games with great fascination. My rooting interest is more Spartans than Badgers; I spent more time in East Lansing...

Redskins season all but over?

Editor’s note: Hog Heaven contributor Scott Hirsch vents his frustration.   Every NFC East team that played won today, and every one of those teams looked light years better than the Redskins. The “we have the talent ” quote ends Monday night.

Washington can use some good news before the Seahawks fly in

Hog Heaven hates Giants, no matter what coast they hail from. The Nationals can’t score more than three runs in 27 innings of trying. To make the NLCS, the Nats must win three of three from the baseball Giants. We’ve read this script before. That Thursday night beat down by the football Giants feels as fresh as yesterday. No fan in Washington believes with conviction that the...

Redskins special teams: it’s coverage, stupid. Out of the box answers?

Redskins fans are dissatisfied with special teams  ̶  dissatisfied with everything right now. Special teams frustrated fans the most for a very long time. Kickers and returners catch fan’s ire. But, folks, coverage is the devil. Defense is how teams win possession, but special teams is how teams win field position. The Redskins were in sucky field position all night against...

Ryan Clark: Redskins have to want it more than the Seahawks

“You’re a 3-13 team last year, you’re a 1-2 team going into the Giants’ game. That’s personal. That’s the way some people in this locker room looked at it. It was a terrible sense of entitlement. I can’t make a man want it. I can’t make a man understand how he’s supposed to work or approach his game. All I can do is approach them all the same, like it’s the last...

Antrel Rolle: Kirk Cousins folds under pressure

“It was the pressure up front. When you slow the tape down and you watch how we got after those guys up front, it was phenomenal. … And one thing that our coaches put a point of emphasis on is when this guy doesn’t have pressure, his passer rating is 100-something, but when he has that pressure and he gets pressure in his face, his passing rating went all the way down to like...

Fun with words, How a Saints story fits Redskins like a glove, including the “not hopeless” part

Sometimes stories just write themselves, especially when written by somebody else. Fans always feel that bad things happen only to their team. Or, theirs is the leagues’s sole team to improve. Every other team is standing still. (The Cowboys, for example.) Redskins fans can use some light-hearted laughter to erase the gloom. The Nats are in the playoffs, (Go Nats! by the way)...

Too early for an autopsy on the Redskins 2014 season?

After a 1-3 start that is starting to look like 1-5 given the Redskins’ schedule, is it time to call it over this year? After a first draft of factors of why it could be over, I had to delete the list because it was 1) too long 2) too obvious and 3) too depressing! The bizarre coaching moves such as cutting Richard Crawford, telling him he is on the practice squad, then not putting...

Will DC residents do what Red Mesa residents did and save their high school Indian nickname?

District of Columbia Council member Kenyan McDuffie introduced an ordinance to ban the use of “race-based nickname, logo, mascot or team name” by schools in city limits. The proposal comes a year after the Council passed a “Sense of the Council to Rename the Washington National Football League Team Resolution of 2013” Apparently, the Council wants to change the name from...

Tandler: Don’t hurt yourself jumping off the Cousins bandwagon

“A lot of fans and media types are in grave danger of hurting themselves while jumping off of the Kirk Cousins bandwagon. It was a very crowded place to be after the Jaguars and Eagles games. It’s now nearly empty. But just like it was way too early to proclaim Cousins the new savior prior to Thursday night, it’s too early to say that he is hopeless flawed after his five...

Bloom is off Kirk Cousins, gloom is on the Redskins after Thursday night fumble

Sorry readers. Hog Heaven needed a moment to recover from the fumble in the jungle. I saw something good in the 45-14 beat down by the Giants. Let’s begin with that.   The Redskins used Alfred Morris as a receiving target. Kirk Cousins targeted him three times and he caught all three passes for 27 net yards, 26 came on one play. Morris big catch was in the second half when it...

Redskins: “We know we have a good team,

“…but we have to show up every day. We didn’t show up [Thursday night against the Giants]. It’s good that it happened to us like, hey, we’re good but we’re not as good as we think we are. We’ve still got a lot of work to be done.” ~ Alfred Morris

South Park Redskins bench RGIII for Kirk Cousins

Well, this is going to be bigger news than anything else you will read Thursday, including the Giants at Redskins game on Thursday Night Football. South Park, the animated parody program on Comedy Central, took a swipe at the Washington Redskins team name controversy. South Park replaced Robert Griffin III who was shown in promos last Sunday with Kirk Cousins by the time the show...

Native American Redskins fans to Congress: Stick to business, not to football teams

Native American Redskins fans posted a petition on MoveOn.org addressed to politicians asking that they “Stop Wasting Our Nation’s Resources on a Football Team.”   Move On has a decidedly Progressive voice. Progressive Democrats use the Washington Redskins team name as a new front in the culture war with Conservative Republicans who have been all too happy to accommodate...
