It’s a little slow in the way of Redskins news for the next two months so if you’re looking forward to the 2016 season, and we know you are, you can look for a variety of ways to keep your desktop or mobile device hailing to the Washington Redskins between now and September as well as the usual exclusive content for which you’ve come to trust the site.
Yeah, yeah, yeah… before you even start, I did this graphic up to pay homage to Sean Taylor, not to exploit him or his good name.
After all, not only is Taylor a favorite of many-to-most Redskins fans, he was also the favorite player of the Redskins 2nd round draft pick Su’a Cravens (53rd overall).

Cravens wore number 21 at USC.
It’s not likely Cravens will actually ever see himself in the number 21 of the burgundy and gold – nor will anyone else – so I hope there’s no feathers ruffled with a little bit of Photoshop manipulation to show what it would look like.
The composite uses Sean’s jersey AND pads, and then there is just helmet accents laid over top of the USC helmet. Yeah sure, there are some quirky bits, but it’s just for some burgundy and gold fun. See both images below to see where the composite came from.
Send all complaints to 1-800-EAT-SH… oh, nevermind.
More about Cravens’ pre-NFL days here.

Hail. To the Redskins. To Su’a. And especially to Sean. May he rest in peace.
And just because there is never not a good reason to post this, the original Sean Taylor Tribute wallpaper:
That’s right, it’s Wallpaper Wednesday again, and while we may be playing the Cowboys this week…
… it doesn’t matter because we’re going to the playoffs!
Largely due to the play of Captain Kirk.
We Like That.

My apologies for the unforeseen layoff of the Wallpaper Wednesdays… I was out of internet commission for a little bit.
This week’s wallpaper is Jason Hatcher. With it being Dallas Week, it seemed most appropriate.
Enjoy, and just click on the image for the full 1440×900 resolution image.
P.S. – I hate Dallas.
Follow me on Twitter @TheHogsdotNet. I will be serving up Cowboys vitriol in my timeline all week.
After sitting out the previous two games with a concussion, it didn’t take long for Jordan Reed to make an impact when he returned.
Reed’s presence was obvious. Not only did he catch 11 passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns, but his last catch was the game winner in Washington’s thrilling 31-30 come-from-behind victory over the Bucs. The Redskins lined up 4 receivers left, Reed to the right, and what looked like a good position and time for a fade, turned into a quick slant for a touchdown when Reed immediately planted, went inside, and too quickly for anyone to react. Cousins hit him in stride en route to the end zone, and the Redskins polished off the biggest comeback in franchise history.

Trent Williams had some pretty high praise for Reed after the game, “You show me anyone in the league who can guard that man one-on-one. I haven’t seen that yet. As long as we’ve got him, we got a chance. He’s the best receiving tight end that I’ve seen.”
Welcome back Jordan. Stay healthy.
Enjoy. Share. Hail.

I thought that this week I would make DeSean Jackson the subject of #WallpaperWednesday. His status for Sunday’s game against the Bucs is still questionable, so I’m trying to send a little good mojo his way. And the Redskins way.
Because they sure need a dose of something.

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.

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.
Click on the image for the 1440×900 wallpaper. I actually made this one in the offseason (and am technically cheating) but it seemed inappropriate to honor somebody else.
Congratulations on a great game Swaggy.
Hail to the Redskins.

After a spectacular 2 Touchdown, 123 yard performance by the rookie running back, Matt Jones is the subject of this week’s #wallpaperWednesday. There are 3 graphics here… a 1440×900 wallpaper, a 900×900 square version for social network use (avatars, twitcons, FB profiles), and another square version with last week’s stats on it.
Enjoy and happy #Redskins #wallpaperWednesday
