    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.

    Redskins Inactive List and Game Feed for Pats

    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    The Washington Redskins inactive list for the game against the New England Patriots at Fed Ex is as follows:

    WR Terrence Austin
    SS LaRon Landry
    RB Ryan Torain
    LB Markus White
    OL Eric Cook
    DL Chris Baker
    DE Kentwan Balmer

    Torain is a surprise only in that it leaves just Evan Royster to back up Roy Helu. Cook is also a bit of a surprise given the state of the offensive line, and that Will Montgomery comes in a little banged up.

    Need a feed for the game, try here.

    Edit:

    Patriots inactives via @granthpaulsen – QB Mallett, S Chung, RB Vereen, LB Spikes, OL Connolly, OL Vollmer, DL Warren.

    UDFA Feeding Frenzy Begins

    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    With the NFL lockout ending yesterday, football fans everywhere celebrated and flocked to Message Boards, Blogs, Facebook and Twitter to express their feelings on the situation. Information and misinformation was flying fast and furious. You had to have your head on a swivel, and you had to be very careful about determining what was truly news, as opposed to just hype or conjecture.

    NFL teams were granted permission to start football operations, and despite the fact that they can’t sign anyone until Friday, teams are allowed to make hand shake deals with this year’s crop of Undrafted Free Agents. Rumors swirled all night on the world wide web, and it appears as though at least three college players agreed in principle to Redskin contracts. Keep in mind that none of the transactions can be completed until the end of the week, so players can change their minds.

    The Loser Papers – 2017 – Edition II

    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    Ouch! That’s going to leave a mark on Raider Nation’s collective psyche. Let’s go the The East Bay Times to find out just how big.

     

    Raiders offensive line opens wide for Washington in 27-10 loss

    PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

    HYATTSVILLE, Md. — Derek Carr has said his team goes as its offensive line goes. On Sunday, he was right.

    Thought to be one of the best units in the NFL, the Raiders offensive line was porous against Washington. Carr was sacked four times, and the group that has opened up spacious running holes and provided Carr with ample time to throw did the opposite Sunday night.

    Washington pressured Carr all night and Oakland only rushed for 32 yards on 13 attempts. In turn, the Raiders (2-1) fell to Washington (2-1), 27-10.

    “We got our butts handed to us today, man,” left tackle Donald Penn said. “They went out there and were the better team today.”

    Carr had only been sacked twice in the first two games of the season. Both came on consecutive plays in Week 1 when backup right tackle Vadal Alexander replaced Newhouse and played a role in both sacks. The vaunted Jets defensive line didn’t get to Carr in Week 2 during the Raiders’ 45-20 win.

    On Sunday, Washington got to Carr from the start. Junior Galette and Jonathan Allen combined to take down Carr, before Preston Smith beat left guard Kelechi Osemele for a sack on the next play. Then to open the second half, Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan blew by Marshall Newhouse for a loss of 5 yards. Two plays later, Allen and Matt Ioannidis took Carr down for his fourth sack of the night.

    “The other guys across from you get paid and if you don’t come to play, especially in a primetime game, you get embarrassed,” Newhouse said. ” … We’re not happy with how things turned out and we’ve got to get it fixed.”

    They said it

    Washington QB Kirk Cousins on his defense: “I couldn’t believe it when you think about how successful that Oakland offense has been, not only this season but back to last season.”

    Oakland LB James Cowser on his two fumble recoveries: “Really it was just trying to be in the right place where I need to be … I just happened to be there and they just happened to fall in my lap. Really blessed.”

    Raiders LT Donald Penn: “I am not going to protest next week. I didn’t want to do it this week, but I felt like something had to be said.”

    Raiders coach Jack Del Rio on Derek Carr: “We’ve obviously seen him play at a real high level. Tonight wasn’t one of those nights. It started on the second play of the game and I think it kind of unraveled from there.”

    Raiders QB Derek Carr on going 0-for-11 on third downs: “Yeah, that’s not good. It sucked.”

    PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

    HYATTSVILLE, Md. — Washington out-gained the Raiders by 344 yards on offense, 472-128, and Oakland failed to convert on each of its 11 third downs. The Raiders (2-1) fell to Washington (2-1), 27-10, delivering a wake-up call to an Oakland team that was one of three left undefeated in the NFL when the game started.

    Here’s how we graded the Raiders after their loss.

    Pass offense: D-

    The only play preventing this category from being an F is the fact that Oakland’s new tight end got in the end zone for the first time this season. Jared Cook’s 20-yard touchdown gave the Raiders a sliver of hope in the second half, but Derek Carr’s inability to generate anything else in the air doomed Oakland. The quarterback threw for 118 yards, second-fewest in his 50-game career in any game he wasn’t injured in. Carr also threw two interceptions, one on the first pass he threw, and tossed 13 incomplete passes a week after completing 23-of-28 in the air. Then there were the 11 failed third-down conversions, and the fact that Oakland only earned three first downs via Carr’s arm. At the end of the night, Carr boasted a cringeworthy 52.9 quarterback rating.

    Rushing offense: F

    Thirteen carries, 32 yards. Marshawn Lynch only totaled 18 yards on six carries and once again struggled to generate any sizable runs. Cordarrelle Patterson, Carr and Jalen Richard each had two rushing attempts. Together, they totaled 14 yards on six carries. DeAndre Washington ran the ball once for no gain. It didn’t help that Oakland’s vaunted offensive line opened up for Washington’s defensive front to penetrate, making it next to impossible for the Raiders to muster any rushing threat. Oakland also had only two first downs on the ground, the same amount of first downs the Raiders received via penalties.

    Pass defense: D

    Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins dissected the Raiders defense all night, completing 25-of-30 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns. Running back Chris Thompson caught six of his seven targets for 150 yards and a touchdown. Jamison Crowder and Vernon Davis caught a combined 11-of-11 targets for a combined 110 yards and a touchdown. The hosts earned 14 first downs via the air and converted 7-of-15 third downs. Raiders cornerback David Amerson, in his return to Washington, got Moss’d on a 52-yard touchdown strike from Cousins to wideout Josh Doctson. Amerson somewhat salvaged his night with two impressive breakups on passes targeting Terrelle Pryor, but for the majority of the night Oakland’s pass defense was uninspiring.

    Rush defense: B+

    Washington only averaged 3.4 yards per carry, and Thompson did his damage via the air instead of the ground. Starter Rob Kelley sat out with a rib injury, and rookie Samaje Perine didn’t fare too well in his place. The Oklahoma product ran for 49 yards on 19 carries and coughed up the ball in the second half. Thompson ran for 38 yards on eight carries and fourth-stringer Mack Brown tallied 27 yards on six carries. Washington only ran for four first downs, while Oakland’s front stifled a depleted backfield for most of the night. Unfortunately for the Raiders, Cousins still had his way Sunday night.

    Special teams: A-

    Marquette King is first in the NFL when it comes to average yards per punt (53.3) and net yards per punt (50.3). He got plenty of practice at FedEx Field, averaging 52.7 yards on seven punts and pinning four inside the 20. He logged a long of 61. Giorgio Tavecchio remained perfect on the year, hitting his only extra point and knocking through a chip-shot 22-yard field goal. Patterson only brought out one kickoff for 27 yards, and Richard returned two punts for four yards. Crowder only totaled 23 yards on four punt returns for Washington, and he muffed one that James Cowser recovered for Oakland.

    Coaching: C-

    Again on the goal line, again Carr threw three straight incomplete passes. The second-half sequence Sunday mirrored that of Week 1, when Oakland opted not to feed Lynch on the doorstep and was forced to settle for a short field goal. This time, a defensive pass interference on Washington set up the Raiders with a 1st-and-goal from the 4, but the drive ended in Tavecchio’s 22-yarder. The Raiders only committed four penalties that cost them 35 yards, but a couple questionable play calls on lengthy third downs contributed to Oakland’s offensive inefficiency throughout the night.

    Bacon Bits: Redskins News From Around The Web For The Week Of June 22nd 2016

    news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

    baconBits-900-2

    Redskins ILB Perry Riley (foot) will be ready for training camp.

    Riley has been shut down since December. He shed his walking boot last week and is on track for a late July return. OLB Junior Galette (Achilles) is also expected to be cleared for camp.
    Jun 16 – 9:16 AM

    Josh Doctson (Achilles) is expected to be ready for training camp.

    Doctson missed most of OTAs and all of minicamp, but the Redskins aren’t concerned about him falling behind. “Doctson will be fine,” WRs coach Ike Hilliard said. “I’m not worried about him. He can spit out [all the terminology]. He’s going to be real good.” Doctson will compete for the No. 3 role behind DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon when he gets cleared.
    Jun 16 – 11:41 AM

    ESPN’s John Keim reports second-year slot receiver Jamison Crowder has “left folks at Redskins Park excited.”

    Per Keim, Crowder has “looked decisive and explosive in his routes,” and the Redskins will be “reluctant” to remove him from three-receiver sets because of how good he’s looked. Removing Crowder is a question because first-rounder Josh Doctson is joining DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in the Redskins’ receiver corps. Crowder has also drawn praise from Kirk Cousins. With so many other mouths to feed in D.C., Crowder probably won’t be a weekly WR4.

    Jun 16 – 8:40 PM

    ESPN’s John Keim reports the Redskins have “(seen) what they wanted” from Matt Jones this spring.

    Per Keim, the “sense” is that the Redskins will be much better off at running back than they were in 2015 if Jones “performs this season the way he has practiced this spring.” Jones spent most of the offseason working on fundamentals, like taking handoffs and better ball security. He’s being set up for success, but it’s not a guarantee it will come. He’s a risk/reward RB2.
    Source:ESPN.com
    Jun 16 – 8:44 PM

    CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Rich Tandler said ILB Will Compton is written “in Sharpie” at the top of the depth chart.

    Compton started the final nine games of last season including the playoffs, but he was a massive liability in the run game. He should enter this season as a starter as well, but he will need to take a big step forward for Washington’s defense to improve. Perry Riley and Mason Foster will compete for the starting spot opposite Compton.

    • Scott is not that short sighted and he does not care about playing ‘meaningful games in December’ of this year – he wants to play meaningful games when the team has a good core of players here – players and coaches that do not show a lot of improvement will not be here next season no matter what the record is – Scott is trying to repair the damage done by bad management
