  • Laveranues Coles: #TBT


    Today’s Throwback Thursday is Laveranues Coles. With the Jets on tap this weekend, it seemed like a good time to reminisce about Coles’ time in Washington.

    Coles only played for the Redskins for two seasons – 2003 and 2004. He put up good numbers too, 82 and 90 receptions, and 1264 and 1204 yards. Regardless, his time here seemed maligned and he headed back to the Jets in 2005 where he played four more seasons. He then played a season for the Bengals before heading back to the Jets ceremoniously before retiring. Hard to believe that it’s over a decade since he was in D.C.

    Trent Williams: #WallpaperWednesday


    Still feeling down over the tough loss to the Falcons? Maybe a new Redskins wallpaper for your desktop will cheer you up.

    Personally, I think the offensive line has played well to date this season – perhaps even better than expected. After all, 40% of the line has virtually no NFL experience. Run blocking has been tough sledding as opposing teams stuff the box to make Kirk Cousins beat them. The line’s pass protection has been very good. That line currently begins and ends with Left Tackle Trent Williams.

    The Silverback.

    Difficult Loss To Swallow?


    I know I wasn’t the only one that found Sunday’s loss to the Falcons heart-breaking – most of Redskins Nation were pretty devastated. I tried to provide even a minor amount of silver-lining through my Twitter account, but some to many just weren’t having it.

    Which I understand to a degree, but maybe not to the degree that sometimes seems to be the case.

    Ok, I get it. We could have won the game. I even understand that some will feel that we SHOULD have won the game. At the end of the day, we just didn’t. Read the rest of this entry »

    Falcon Anecdote


    I remember years ago when the site was part of the Fan 2 Fan Alliance and every week, fans of other teams would raid our message board. It was weekly pandemonium. The internet was different then. There was one particular occasion where we were playing the Falcons… given today’s game against Atlanta, it seemed an appropriate time to reminisce.

    At the time we were doing a weekly podcast with then Redskins receiver Brandon Lloyd. The following day, one of the Atlanta fans hit our message boards to mock me. Read the rest of this entry »

    Flashback Friday: Trevor Matich


    Today’s Flashback Friday is Trevor Matich. After all, today is his birthday. 🙂

    Matich played for the Redskins from 1994 through 1996, but was in Washington after his playing days, cutting his broadcasting teeth in D.C.

    Perhaps the most memorable quote by Matich in his time here, was on (then) Head Coach Steve Spurrier:

    “The Redskins would be better off if their head coach were a ham sandwich. A ham sandwich has no personal agenda and would at least do no harm.”

    Umm, perfect.

    Chris Baker: #WallpaperWednesday


    After a two sack performance in Sunday’s tense 23-20 victory over the Philadelphia Beagles, Chris Baker is the subject of this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday.

    Affectionately known as Swaggy, Baker was a disruptive stud against the Eagles and took full advantage of his added playing time – playing time that he was granted due to playing well of late. Obviously it was a sound decision as the big nose tackle registered his first multi-sack game as a professional.

    Congratulations on a great game Swaggy.

    Site Issues With Blog and News Feeds


    We apologize for the problem with the Aggregate News and Blog feeds.

    Unfortunately a fix is not simple, nor imminent. The tools I used to help create the information are now defunct.

    I am looking for an alternative and will let you know if or when I find one.

    My apologies as I know many people use the resource to find their Redskins News.

    Thanks for your time and patronage at www.thehogs.net.

    In the meantime, make sure that you’re following our Facebook page and Twitter Feeds to get all the latest happenings.
