Wallpaper Wednesday: Vintage Joe Jacoby Mobile Wallpaper

After a season ending loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, it seemed like a good time to run a vintage wallpaper. Perhaps if we celebrate a player of yesteryear, it will take away some of the sting of the current year.

So today’s #WallpaperWednesday celebrates the greatest player, that is not currently in the Hall Of Fame.

Mr. Joe Jacoby.

History Says Washington Should Draft A Tackle In First Round

Washington Left Tackles

The Washington Football Team could really use a left tackle. Perhaps they have been a bit spoiled over the years. Washington may not have dominated the league for the last two decades, but they have always had a great left tackle. And before that?

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.

Flashback Friday: Joe Jacoby

It seems only fitting that the day after the Redskins signed 11 undrafted free agents, that we flashback to a never forgotten legend of the burgundy and gold… Joe Jacoby.

After all, not only was Jacoby never drafted, and not only is he the greatest Redskin player to never be drafted – he is one of the greatest players in NFL history to never be drafted.

Happy Flashback Friday.

Feel free to share the graphic on your social networks.

Hail to the Redskins, hail to one of the greatest Redskins and undrafted NFL players ever – and my personal fave of all time. Big Jake.

Bostic and Jacoby on ESPN 980

Original Hogs Jeff Bostic and Joe Jacoby were on ESPN 980, waxing poetic about days gone by and the differences that exist between playing offensive line now, versus playing in the trenches 20+ years ago.

Bostic talks about NEVER having taken a shotgun snap in the entire time he was under center for the Redskins. Incredible when you think about it, and the modern NFL climate. Read More

Dallas Week: Memories of Rivalry Past

I was both impressed and amused by Deangelo Hall’s new found fiestiness…  in an “Awwww, come on, dude” kind of way…  Here’s this little guy, never known for his physicality, talkin’ “AH MA GONNA TAKE’EMOUT” smack with Tony Romo on Dallas Week. 

Deangelo:  “Absolutely. I want to get a chance to put my helmet on whatever’s hurt,” Hall said. “Romo’s ribs—I’m going to be asking for some corner blitzes. If I know Felix Jones’(notes) shoulder’s hurt, I’m not going to cut him. I’m definitely going to try to hit him up high, so that’s just part of it.

“If you know something’s wrong with an opponent, you’re going to try to target in on that. We’re going to try to definitely get as many hats on that team as possible.”

Does it get any better?  Read More
