Wallpaper Wednesday: Super Bowl Rings – The Redskins Legacy

Today’s wallpaper is Washington’s Super Bowl rings!!

Sometimes after a tough loss, it’s hard to pay tribute to one of the current players. It seems more sensible to pay homage to the past. In this case – to the Redskins three Super Bowl victories.

If you need to be reminded, Washington won Super Bowl XVII, Super Bowl XXII, and Super Bowl XXVI.

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.┬áIt’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.

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?

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.

This Line is Offensive

As a staff member at theHogs.net that goes by the name JansenFan, I think it’s pretty apparent that I am a big fan of the big guys up front. It is my core belief that games are won and lost in the trenches, and my team used to believe that, too.
