Wallpaper Wednesday: Commemorative Sean Taylor Jersey Retirement

Washington retired Sean Taylor’s jersey number 21 this past weekend. He is just the third player in Washington history to receive the honor.

Much ado has been made about the lack of notice to fans. Rightfully so, Sean deserved better.

So why not at least honor him with a wallpaper?

It would have been great to put out the wallpaper last week, but the team hadn’t announced the event at that time. 🙁

Wallpaper Wednesday: Vintage Russ Grimm Mobile Wallpaper

Another tough loss this week for Washington. It seems like a good time to run another vintage wallpaper, to take our minds off the sting of wasted opportunities against the Saints.

Today we celebrate a Washington Legend.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Taylor Heinicke Earned His Stripes

Taylor Heinicke got his second career NFL win on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. The way in which he got that second win though, was spectacular.

Two highlight reel touchdowns in the last five minutes, to steal a win at the Mercedes Benz Stadium.

In Atlanta. Where Heinicke was born and grew up.

He had a ton of friends and family there to witness it all.

Well done young man.

Wallpaper Wednesday: John Riggins Vintage Mobile Wallpaper

It doesn’t seem like the right time to add another wallpaper on the defensive side of the equation right now. Then again, it doesn’t seem like the right time to add a wallpaper on the offensive side of the equation right now either.

What can we celebrate this week?

How about a Washington Legend?

Wallpaper Wednesday: King Of Payne – Daron Payne

Up next in our Wallpaper Wednesday edition is The King Of Payne – Daron Payne.

The former first round draft pick for Washington is in his fourth season, and played more snaps than anyone else on the defensive line last year (881). He finished 2020 with 54 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles, one interception, and one fumble recovery.

Washington picked up the option on Payne’s contract this past spring, ensuring that he will be in Washington in 2022 as well.

It hasn’t panned out as expected yet in 2021, but Payne, Chase Young, Montez Sweat and Jonathan Allen are arguably the most formidable Defensive Line in football.

The season is young.

There will be Payne.

Wallpaper Wednesday: 2021 Schedule Wallpapers

My apologies for the “late” nature of these schedule wallpapers, but I was offline for an extended period. The original plan was to post these weekly for a few weeks leading up to the season. Due to their tardy nature, I am posting them all today.

It is a long tradition at THN dating back to the early 2000’s for us to create schedule wallpapers for the season. This year, most of the wallpapers posted on Wallpaper Wednesday were created for mobile devices and at 1080×1920 resolution.

Enjoy! And share! Read More

Wallpaper Wednesday: Vintage John Riggins

There isn’t really a sure fire way to wipe the bad taste out of your mouth from a humiliating 38-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys – especially when it puts the nail in the playoff hunt coffin.

Seemed appropriate to celebrate the past glory with nothing left to play for this year, but pride.

So today’s wallpaper is “The Diesel” John Riggins. One of the most colorful characters to ever don the burgundy and gold, and one of the best football players too.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Greg Manusky

Thought I would break out of the Wallpaper Wednesday mould and do something different – and recognize a coach instead of a player. Well in this case, a coach who is a former player – Greg Manusky. The Redskins defensive coordinator took over the reigns from Joe Barry in the offseason, after serving as the outside linebackers coach the year before.

The Redskins defense has had an up and down season – how much of that is on Manusky is open to individual interpretation.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Chris Thompson – Breakout Performer

It was heartbreaking to see Chris Thompson carted off the field this weekend. He has become such a valuable weapon for this struggling offense, and he has already overcome a multitude of significant sports injuries.

But when the dust settles from a ridiculously tough loss to the Saints, Redskins fans that seem to have a propensity for disagreeing – would all agree that losing Thompson, and in such a grandiose fashion, was probably the most bitter taste left in their mouth.

Thompson had an incredible 10 games for the Redskins in 2017 – so incredible in fact, that the opposition’s game plan had become to simply come in and shut down the elusive scat back. And while more teams were scheming for him, they were still having trouble shutting him down.

Thompson led the Redskins in BOTH rushing (64 carries, 294 yards) and receiving (39 receptions, 510 yards) – an incredible feat, and testament to how tough the running back has been to bring down after a catch.

His play defines the word “breakout” and was the inspiration for this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Joe Jacoby Vintage Edition

As I sat around trying to decide who I was going to make the subject of this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday, I found myself slightly uninspired. The only player that I thought earned the stripe on Sunday was DJ Swearinger, and he’s already been the subject of a Wallpaper Wednesday AND included in the Flight Marshalls wallpaper just last week.

So I dipped into the well and pulled out my favorite all-time Redskin – Mr. Joe Jacoby. Not only the greatest lineman to ever don the burgundy and gold – not only one of the greatest undrafted lineman to ever play – but the greatest offensive lineman not in the Hall of Fame. Disgraceful. And grounds for any Redskins fan to boycott Canton if they believe in the sanctity of the process.

He was on all three Redskins Super Bowl teams. He made four Pro Bowls. He was first team All Pro twice. The Pro Football Hall of Fame itself, even named him to the 2nd team all 1980s team. But still not in the Hall.
