Chimera Caps Off Improbable Comeback In Double Overtime


As the second overtime period began on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden, I couldn’t help but believe that the Washington Capitals would find some way to win. After the disastrous second period, I never felt like the Caps were out of it and following the glorious third period, I felt as if momentum was on their side. The only real surprise was the unlikely hero.

Ken Harvey on Daniel Snyder/Haiti


Diageo, the world’s leading purveyor of premium drinks and partner of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, pride itself in being a first responder to critical situations throughout the world, as well as right here in the Washington DC area. When the reports came out about the quake in Haiti, they knew they needed to get involved. The question was how. Read the rest of this entry »

Vinny Is Outta Here


I was reading a friend’s blog the other day, as she wrote about great gifts to get for a guy, and I thought, “I wonder if you can ask Santa for a new Washington Redskins GM for Christmas.” I sat down with pen and paper and wrote my list for the big guy the very next day. Well, for those non-believers out there, there absolutely is a Santa Claus.

Vinny Cerrato has resigned (no, not re-signed… he quit) today as The Washington Redskins President of Football Operations. Already signed to replace him is Bruce Allen, former Tampa Bay General Manager and son of legendary coach George Allen. Let the speculation begin.

What does this mean for the future of embattled quarterback Jason Campbell, or the current coaching staff? That remains to be seen. All eyes will certainly be trained on Redskins Park to see what comes out of the new football guy.

In addition, Bruce Allen was the GM that brought Jon Gruden to Tampa. This is the same Gruden that the rumor mills listed as the front runner to take over if Jim Zorn was fired, and oh by the way, Gruden will be in town Monday for the game between the Redskins and Giants. Do I want to see Gruden become the new head coach for the ‘Skins? Not really, but that’s a story for another blog. Is the irony of the timing lost on me? Absolutely not.

Regardless of whom the next coach is (and it could be the same as the current coach), a new guy will be making the decision. A change has been needed at the top of this organization since Marty Shottenheimer left town. Granted, as we’ve noted often in these Hog Blogs, the change only matters if Bruce Allen is given all the keys to the car and not just that funky looking one that you are supposed to give to valet parking attendants so they can’t get into the trunk.

In other words, you’ve taken a step in the right direction by bringing in a football person to make the decisions prior to making the decisions for him Mr. Snyder. Now — and with all due respect — BACK OFF!!!

Sun Tzu, Daniel Snyder and Jim Zorn


The following post was written by theHogs.net member, Redskin in Canada. I have in the past, been a Dan Snyder apologist, and RiC and I have had a few spirited debates on this topic, but as I slowly leave the dark side and come into the light, much of what he has been saying over the past few seasons has really started to make sense.
