Top 5 posts from Redskins Hog Heaven, September 2012


Although this is a retired Redskins fan site, you people are still showing up here -- 164 unique visitors and 247 page views in the seven days around the Cowboys at Redskins game when the Washington clinched the 2012 NFC East championship. HAIL!

Running Redskins is still retired. The man now known as SkinsHogHeaven posts new content on the Redskins Hog Heaven blog, part of the Bloguin Network. As a service to those who still visit here, -- thank you for that, by the way -- we will post links to the top five most visited Hog Heaven stories of a past month, starting with September 2012.

Here ya' go:

Sept 11, 2012 - Josh Morgan was right about RGIII, but real test is last half of the season.

"Everyone gasped a little when Washington Redskins receiver Josh Morgan compared rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III to a near-great and two great veteran quarterbacks. It sounded a little too over-the-top."

Sept 05, 2012 - Bet on it -- Robert Griffin III will pass for 3700 yards and 22 touchdowns.

"The gambling sharps expect a very Andy Dalton-type year from Robert Griffin III, and they expect a typical performance from Pierre Garçon. That expectation for Griffin is exciting; for Garçon, it's rather ho-hum."

May 08, 2012 -  Is RGIII the 6th best QB Draft pick of all time? Expert says yes.

This post from May 2012 was still getting traction in September. Excitement over RGIII was just that high. Given what we know about Griffin III's rookie performance, the expert assessment might have been too low.

September 14, 2012 - 15 smart guesses about Redskins at Rams, beginning with Alfred Morris.

"Let's call them hunches more than predictions (to eat less crow. If I get three right, send me a contract...).

"1.  Alfred Morris will break 100 yards, probably by utilizing more outside tracks to the left behind LT Trent Williams. He will score twice again." Author: Scott Hirsch

Sept. 21, 2012 - The GOOD NEWS hidden within the Redskins' season start.

The Redskins just lost Adam Carriker and Brian Orakpo to injury, but we noticed Mike Shanahan's commitment to the youth movement and had an inkling that would pay off big -- not quite as fast as it did, I will admit.
