Many people feel that despite some different members, the offensive line that rolled the Redskins into Super Bowl XXVI wore the name Hog deservedly. Jacoby was still at right tackle, Bostic was still starting at center, and Grimm was now a reserve. Jim Lachey took Starke's spot at left tackle, Raleigh McKenzie was at left guard, and Mark Schlereth was at right guard.
