Could It Really Be Forty Years Ago, That The Hogs Were Being Born?

Has it really been forty years? Four decades ago, something began to grow in the swamps of Virginia. It’s difficult to remember what times were like back then.

Ronald Reagan was president.

People’s phones still had cords attached to them.

There was a war in the Falkland Islands.

Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a bat.

Robert Jarvik invented the world’s first artificial heart.

And perhaps most importantly – at least to this particular article – The Hogs were born.

Jacoby Named Semi-Finalist For Hall Of Fame Induction

Joe Jacoby is once again in the hunt for a spot in Pro Football’s Hall of Fame. His “modern” eligibility for induction expired in 2018, but he’s back on the ballot as a “Senior”. Will this finally be the year that this wrong gets righted?

Jacoby is one of 25 semi-finalists in the Senior category. The committee will narrow that number down to 12 by July 27th. By August 16th, that number will be crunched down to the three that will make this year’s Class.

Joe not being in the Hall has been the bane of some Washington fans existence for quite some time. It is hard to imagine what it feels like to Jacoby himself. An original member of “The Hogs” – the inspiration for this website – he is easily the most revered offensive tackle to ever don the burgundy and gold. That puts him ahead of the likes of Chris Samuels, Trent Williams, and even Jim Lachey. All four were great tackles during their tenure. Ask the fans though – and it’s a virtual landslide in Joe’s favor.

Have you ever wondered to yourself how the Redskins coaching staff haven’t been able to see in a practice, the same things that we fans see in a game?

Sacred Cow Tipping

Oh, I know I’m gonna ruffle some feathers with this one.

Here’s my question; Was Jack Kent Cooke really the genius we believe him to be, or did he just have the right cogs fall into place?

JJG’s Z-Men

You have to give credit where credit is due… Zorn has everybody focused on the task at hand. With two losses this team should be in the dumps. Not because of the the losses, but to whom and how. Week one against the Giants it looked bad when the final whistle blew but Zorn and his staff had them ready to the next week, after basically laying down for the Rams (by overlooking them) it would have killed other teams but not Zorn’s crew.

What Do You Even Say?

What do you even say?

With a million words being written about the return of Joe Gibbs today, we were trying to figure out we could say that wasn’t going to be written dozens of times over.

We though that for a change we would put together some of the comments that our message board visitors have been making. This is a fan site and we think that while evryone is citing Gibbs’ history, and NASCAR accomplishments, we’d post how this monumental occurrence has affected the most important people in the organization… the fans.
