  • Sonny Jurgensen: Throwback Thursday

    In light of the Redskins’ match-up against their division rival Eagles this week, it seemed like a good time to feature Redskins mainstay Sonny Jurgensen.

    Jurgensen was drafted by Philadelphia, and played seven seasons there; before being traded to Washington for quarterback Norm Snead and cornerback Claude Crabbe. He played eleven seasons for the Redskins, and incredibly won the NFL passing title in his final 1974 season at the age of forty. He was induced into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with the Class of 1983.

    Brandon Scherff: #WallpaperWednesday

    It’s #WallpaperWesday again at thehogs.net.

    This week…

    Brandon Scherff, as The Punisher.

    Punisher

    Seemed appropriate. He may not have been perfect so far, but he has been pretty darn effective, and hasn’t made many mistakes. Keep grinding rookie, your efforts are not unnoticed.

    Hail to the Redskins.

    Andre Carter Oil Painting

    When Andre Carter played for the Redskins, he was kind enough to write a blog for us every week. He has always been especially near and dear to us. Obviously with social networks, it’s easier to stay in touch with players past and present these days, and I stll follow Dre on Twitter and am friends with him on Facebook.

    If you aren’t already aware, after leaving the Redskins following the 2010 season, Carter played with the New England Patriots in 2011, the Oakland Raiders in 2012 and then again with the Pats in 2013 before retiring.

    He recently returned to University of California, Berkeley both as an undergraduate assistant, and to finish the studies he started there. He was a Golden Bear from 1997 to 2000 where he was a unanimous All-American and finalist for the Bronco Nagurski Award.

    But I digress…

    At the end of last week, an incredible post popped up in my FB timeline – an oil painting commissioned by Andre’s wife Bethany to commemorate his NFL career. With permission of both Andre, and the artist Absolon, I’m blogging it so that the rest of Redskins Nation can see and appreciate this beautiful piece of work.

    Mistakes Prove Costly For Redskins

    You will often hear people remark that no one, single play defines a game, but it would be tough to deny that if you string even two or three really bad plays together, the result will be reflected negatively in the score more often than not. Such was the case on Thursday night in the Washington Redskins’ 32-21 loss to the New York Giants.

    Obviously football is a complicated sport, and mistakes are going to happen on every play. That isn’t what we’re talking about. We’re talking about plays that are head-scratchers, or change the momentum of a game, or both as is often the case. Read the rest of this entry »

    Redskins v Rams – At The Half

    The Redskins controlled the first half with a solid ground game, and their defense looked after the rest.

    Matt Jones scored his first NFL touchdown with a beautiful run up the left sidelines for 39 yards.

    Washington’s last touchdown drive was the best drive of the season. They just smashed their way down the field – it was beautiful. It was capped off with a Garcon 5-yard grab, but was set up completely by the Redskins offensive line paving highways for Matt Jones and Alfred Morris to run through. 12 plays – 82 yards – almost 8 minutes (7:44). Gorgeousity.

    Jones finished the half with 80 yards on 9 carries, AlMo has 52 yards on 8 carries.

    Cousins is 12/14 for 115 yards. No picks despite a narrow miss, and the touchdown pass to Garcon.

    The defense was near perfect. The Rams managed just 72 total yards and kicked the ball 6 straight times. It was the first time that the Redskins have shut out the opposition in the first half, for 4 years – 61 games to be exact.

    Let’s hope that the wheels don’t fall off in the second. If Washington can continue to run the ball like they have, and eat clock, they can earn their first victory of the season against a tough opponent.
