  • Going To Training Camp?


    Well Redskins fans, after following along at all of last week’s practices last week thanks to some great Training Camp tweet updates from our own Jake Russell, I have to admit that I am a little down about missing out on practices this week. So can Redskins Nation help me out?

    I want Redskins fans to send me their photos from camp. Send me some action shots, or your favorite players on the sidelines drinking water, or players signing autographs after practice, or even of you and your friends huddled together doing crazy things at Redskins Park – whatever you want really.

    Training Camp Opens – Coverage Information


    If you can’t be at the opening of Washington Redskins training camp today, then do the next best thing… plug the hashtag #THNTC into a search and keep up with our updates from camp that way.

    THN’s own Jake Russell will be at Redskins Park today tweeting live updates.

    This will be Jake’s 21st consecutive Redskins training camp. At 25 years old, that’s a pretty amazing accomplishment. Jake has been with THN for almost forever, and we always look forward to the insane musings of a die hard Redskins fan don’t we?

    Give Jake a follow at @_JakeRussell on Twitter, or follow me @TheHogsdotNet as I will likely retweet a lot of his updates as well.

    It all starts today – are you ready for some football?

    Redskins 2012 Schedule Wallpaper – RGIII Style!


    Well with training camp opening next week, and rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III having just signed his rookie contract, it seemed appropriate to start putting together a schedule wallpaper for the 2012 season.

    OBVIOUSLY, RGIII is the focus of just about everyone’s attention – both in and out of Washington, so I put together this optimistic spin on the Redskins upcoming season – their first with Griffin under center – and called it ‘Invitation to the Playoffs.’ Read the rest of this entry »

    New Cowboys Jersey (Spoof)


    Found this new Dallas Cowboys jersey in my Photoshop today. I have no idea how or why it got there, but I thought that Redskins Nation might appreciate it. Read the rest of this entry »

    Camp Battles: LineBackers


    The Redskins linebacker group has had a tough couple of seasons after transitioning to the 3-4 defense. The 3-4 is a defense that works much better with a lead. However, with the lackluster performance the offense has displayed the defense has been tasked with keeping the team in games rather than attacking at will like it is designed to do. Most of the linebacker group was either a part of the transition from the 4-3 at a different position or came from a team where they played defensive line. The staff seems to have a knack for finding players that can make the transition well though, with Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo being super examples. In 2011, the team had good starting players but, depth was an issue, mainly because of inexperience. In 2012 however, the linebacker camp battles we will witness will be epic. If the defensive line and secondary can play better this season, the Redskins linebackers could rise to be the top threat in the NFC East. Let’s get to know a little about this group of players.

    Nationals Turn Back the Clock with a Comeback


    As each week goes by, a playoff berth is looking more and more realistic for the Washington Nationals.

    The pessimistic D.C. sports fan in me always errs on the side of caution when it comes to expecting postseason production out of the local teams. For the past two decades, the Redskins average one playoff appearance every four years. The Capitals have turned second round playoff appearances into a common occurrence over the past five years. Advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals has been another task altogether. The Wizards had a good run by tinkering with the first round several times in the mid-2000′s prior to Gilbert Arenas’ firearm catastrophe. D.C. United has been Washington’s most successful pro sports franchise since their inception in 1996 but given the level of popularity of soccer in the area in contrast to the “big four” sports, that success doesn’t resonate quite like the rest.

    Interview with Texans running back Ben Tate


    This summer, I’ve been given the opportunity to write a piece for What’s Up? Annapolis Magazine to profile local athletes from Anne Arundel County (my home county) and Maryland’s Eastern Shore who have made it to the professional level.

    I’ve been trying to kick it into second gear and actually talk to some of these players.

    Fortunately, some have been receptive, including Houston Texans running back Ben Tate, who grew up on the Eastern Shore.

    I had the chance to talk to him on Thursday. Most of the conversation centered around his time growing up in Salisbury and going to school in Berlin, Md. and how it helped him get to where he’s at now. Read the rest of this entry »

    Tough Decisions: The Washington Redskins Secondary, Who to Keep?


    It’s hard to believe, but there truly looks to be “more” competition for roster spots on the Washington Redskins this year than last year. Seriously, other than quarterback, kicker and punter, there’s an abundance of quality players battling for a position. The offensive line, defensive line and receiving corps all could see some changes, but the most intriguing area to me is the defensive secondary.

    Take a look at the names on the roster: Read the rest of this entry »

    Throwbacks For Sure


    With the new uniforms being launched yesterday, Redskins Nation is of course waxing poetic today about whether they like them… are they original enough… whether or not they will buy them… yadda yadda yadda.

    For the record, I personally like them.

    I liked them in 1994 when we first used them. <cough!> Read the rest of this entry »
