Original Hogs Jeff Bostic and Joe Jacoby were on ESPN 980, waxing poetic about days gone by and the differences that exist between playing offensive line now, versus playing in the trenches 20+ years ago.
Bostic talks about NEVER having taken a shotgun snap in the entire time he was under center for the Redskins. Incredible when you think about it, and the modern NFL climate. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t miss that first game, the Browns have that exciting new helmet design.
Said nobody ever.
Hail to the Redskins.
The last remaining suspect in the Sean Taylor shooting, plead guilty yesterday. Timmy Lee Brown received an 18-year sentence for his role in the shooting of Taylor, and with the decision, hopefully there will be some closure for Sean’s family.
Brown was the last of the five suspects to be sentenced, with the gunman Eric Rivera Jr. receiving the longest stretch (60 years). The men intended to burglarize Sean’s home, but shot the Redskins safety dead when he was surprisingly at home.
It was a day that brought Redskins Nation to it’s knees.
Sean may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
Burn in hell Timmy Lee Brown. I hope Bubba takes a fancy to you early on in your prison career.
On Friday, Redskins General Manager Scot McCloughan took another step in re-building the Washington secondary by acquiring veteran free safety Dashon Goldson from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And it cost next-to-nothing to do so.
The Redskins gave up a sixth round pick in 2016, for Goldson and the Bucs seventh round pick in 2016. Stepping back from the sixth to the seventh round in next year’s draft, is a pretty decent price to pay for a guy that will likely be penciled in at starter at a need position. Reality is that the Bucs were going in a new direction, and may even have cut the safety eventually.

Hail to the Redskins.

RIP Sean. Read the rest of this entry »
