While I’m sure what I wrote had nothing to do with it, last week I blogged that I couldn’t believe that the Redskins hadn’t brought in an offensive lineman or two; at least give them a look, and see if they could try and improve the team’s anemic line play.Read More
Here are the Redskins inactives for week 1 against the Giants:

The Redskins released 22 players today to bring the roster down to the required limit of 53. Among those released are offensive lineman Todd Wade, punter Derrick Frost, and preseason standouts Marcus Mason and wide receiver Billy McMullen.
Mason and McMullen led the NFL in rushing and receiving yardage, respectively during the preseason.
Despite his release, TheHogs.net plans to continue it’s weekly On the Line with Todd Wade articles for the upcoming 2008 season until he is signed by another team.Read More
Stats can be deceiving. Looking at preseason stats really don’t tell us anything, or am I really missing something? Things just don’t add up.
– The Redskins starting quarterbackfinished the preseason with 23-of-39 completions for 202 yards, one touchdown and one interception. His backup finished with 33-of-47 completions for 260 yards one TD and a pick. The name escapes me right now finished the preseason with 36-of-53 completions for 411 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Shouldn’t these names or numbers be flip-flopped? Read More
Numbers. 47-3. 24-3. 71-6. Sure, they mean something, and right now they don’t look good. But this game is about more than numbers, which sounds silly to say, since the score has actual numbers in it, numbers which determine the winner and loser. However, in the preseason, I’ve tried to look past the numbers, and what I see from the Redskins is rather exciting.
So, with gloom and doom lurking around the Redskins as of late, I thought I would brighten your day with a few positive notes:Read More
(*Cue dramatic nature-like music & deep voice-over-type voice*) Like a bear – a big, burly brown bear – or wait, maybe a like a black bear, yeah, a black bear – like a black bear, I awaken from my winter slumber to emerge into the spring that is…..the NFL Preseason. Just like the bear, I am hungry – starving for sustenance. For him that means fish and berries – for me, it means Redskins football. And just like the bear, I have to poop, since I’ve been holding it for months. Actually, that’s where the metaphor falls apart, because I have been pooping all winter, but hang in there with me for a moment longer. (*Ahem*) Just like the bear, I’ve forgotten the struggles of the last year, and I look forward to the triumph that the new season seems to promise. And as the bear and I gaze upon the shining spring sun, we’re both thinking the same thing – ‘Man, I hate the *bleeping* Cowboys.’
So now that I’ve warmed up my metaphoric muscles, I’ll get to the meat of the act. I was going to write about how we as Redskins fans need to CALM DOWN and not get all giggly and squirmy just because the team has looked pretty darn good in the first couple of preseason games. But then I thought – hey, why not get all giggly and squirmy? This may be our only chance to get all giggly and squirmy, so we might as well do it now.Read More
