Hogs on eve of Russ Grimm's Hall of Fame induction

Russ Grimm, leader of the Hogs during the Redskins glory days, will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday. In the first of three videos, Grimm's offensive linemates remember him as the "Boss Hog," who took on the toughest defensive assignments, including the Cowboys' Randy White.
Stay tuned to Redskin Insider and washingtonpost.com for more on Grimm.

What? No breakdown of how the Hogs would have handled the Haynesworth situation? Reid must be on lunch break.

-- 10:15 a.m. ET

Young Ones

Here are some of the highlights from 11-on-11 work midway through practice.

* Lendy Holmes made a leaping interception of a John Back pass.

* Richard Bartel found Keiland Williams wide open on a short pass, and it was open field ahead. He had about 20 yards of room to run downfield.

* Curtis Gatewood blitzed into the backfield and would have sacked Bartel. His pass was an overthrow to Chris Cooley on the left sideline.

* Chad Rinehart had great push on a block to the right, helping Williams pick up a chunk of yards on a run play.

* Anderson Russell broke up a pass across the middle with a nice play.

-- 10:30 a.m. ET

Buchanon’s Effort

Phillip Buchanon appears to be having a strong practice on defense.

He made himself do 10 push-ups after breaking up a Roydell Williams pass early in practice.

Then, midway through an 11-on-11 series, he broke up Rex Grossman’s pass to Terrence Austin.

In one of the unsung training camp competitions, Buchanon and Justin Tryon are competing to be the nickel cornerback on the roster.

It’s too close to call at this point.
-- 10:31 a.m. ET

More 11-on-11 Action

With practice winding down, coaches continue to get a good look at young players and roster hopefuls.

* Anthony Bryant, playing with the second-team defense, gets a hand on a Donovan McNabb pass at the line of scrimmage. Chris Horton had a chance at an interception but could not hang on.

* Bobby Wade found himself covered by Chris Wilson and he broke to the end zone. Chris Horton could not get over to help in time. Donovan McNabb’s pass was perfectly placed for Wade to score a touchdown.

* The aforementioned Shay Hodge pulled in a quick slant pass from Rex Grossman.

* Hodge again on a downfield route. Grossman’s downfield pass was overthrown.

* Grossman threw deep to Terrence Austin in the end zone, but the pass was beyond Austin’s reach.

* An awkward pass by Grossman on a deep route to Fred Davis. For some reason, he threw the ball off his back leg and the ball was nowhere near Davis, who was wide open heading to the end zone.

-- 10:40 a.m. ET

Hurry Up!

The Redskins’ first-team offense – keep in mind that some veterans were sitting out – competed against the second-team defense in the hurry-up offense.

Here is where you can see Donovan McNabb’s on-field leadership. He is calm at the line of scrimmage and directs receivers to the right position.

Here’s a play by play of the series:

* McNabb tossed a quick pass to Willie Parker across the middle for a modest gain.

* McNabb fired a 15-yard pass to Bobby Wade, who split two defenders to make the grab.

* McNabb targeted Devin Thomas downfield next and picked up another chunk of yardage.

* McNabb capped the drive by throwing a 25-yard touchdown pass to Chris Cooley, who caught the ball and tumbled into the end zone for the apparent score. Justin Tryon put a hard hit on Cooley just as he crossed the goal line.

Posted by: psps23 | August 4, 2010 12:29 PM | Report abuse

Hold everything! Coaches decided to put the ball at the 1-yard line so the offense could get some work in on the goal line.

* McNabb dropped back and threw to Cooley on the left side. Cooley was in one-on-one coverage with Kareem Moore. The ball was off target, incomplete.

* McNabb rolls left and throws a short fade pass to Darrel Young, who was wide open. He pulled in the pass in the end zone, beating Chris Draft for the score.

-- 10:58 a.m. ET

Hall's Optimism

DeAngelo Hall has never been one to shy away from bold predictons.

After practice, he was asked about the progress of the Redskins' defense.

He stopped short of making any bold predictions this time.

"We have a chance to be good--borderline great," he said. "Me talking about it doesn't mean it happens, though."

Now, that was "Redskin Football" at it's very, very finest...too bad this era is over. Truly a time where a man was a man.

AH is no man, he's no such thing as a teammate, and he's one of sorriest excuses of a professional football player to ever wear a Redskin uniform.

How much better would Trent Williams be this year if he had the chance to practice against Albert Haynesworth? I'm thinking AH will be there on opening day no matter what but how much is this delay hindering the development of the rookie? How much did it help Chris Samuels practicing against Bruce Smith? I would bet quit a bit. Even if the secret agenda is to cut, trade or bench AH by opening day, I'd think get some value out of his presence now for the rookie you know is going to play.

Let's suppose that Shanahan stops requiring Fat Albert to take the test and lets him practice with the team.

How long will it be until he further agrivates his Knee under the riggors of practice? What other injuries will he sustain due to his lack of conditioning?
Do you really think his Knee won't be a lingering problem going into the season? How many games will he miss due to injury? How much impact will he have on the defense if he is too injured to play?

People on this blog rip on Colt Brennan (thank god he's gone) and Malcolm Kelly (who soon will be) all the time beacause they are constantly injured and therefore worthless. HELLO! Fat Albert hasn't played a full season since his rookie year. With his knee acting up before he has even been through ONE DAY of actual practice, I'll be shocked if he even plays HALF a season. Hell, I'll be shocked if he isn't going in for surgery before the season even starts.

What about Jacoby, Bostic, Starke, May, Bugel, et al....?

Posted by: iubiquity | August 4, 2010 12:34 PM

I couldn't agree more. Love the old picture (I only had the poster) of "Hogs Night Out". It's a classic.

The original Hogs were starting tackles Joe Jacoby and George Starke, guards Russ Grimm and Mark May, center Jeff Bostic, and tight ends Don Warren and Rick Walker.

Starke (1973-1984) was the senior member of the squad, having joined Washington in 1972.The rest of the Hogs were relatively new to the team. Bostic (1980-1993) was signed as a long snapper in 1980 after being cut by the Eagles, but was starting at center by the beginning of the 1981 season. He was joined in 1981 by two rookie guards, May (1981-1989) and Grimm (1981-1991). Both May and Grimm were drafted out of Pittsburgh in the 1st and 3rd round respectively (20th & 69th overall).

The final piece of the puzzle, the biggest piece, joined the Redskins that same famed 1981 training camp. A giant rookie free agent from Louisville named Joe Jacoby (1982-1993) walked into Coach Gibbs office looking for a job. Figuring Jacoby was a defensive tackle because of his massive size (6'7", 305 lbs), Gibbs told Joe that he'd give him a chance.

''I was scared and frightened because I didn't know what to expect,'' Jacoby remembers about that first meeting. ''So I didn't want to correct him.''

The Rest is history. These five men formed the core of the Hogs. In fact, over the next two seasons, 1982 and 1983, Jacoby, Starke, Grimm, May and Bostic would miss a combined total of just ONE game. They hung out together, they ate together, Grimm and Jacoby even roomed together for a few years. More importantly, they became a powerful, cohesive unit that provided big holes for John Riggins and pass protection for Joe Theismann. Riggins campaigned to be a Hog, as did Theismann. "No quarterbacks," said Starke. The Hogs loved John though and he was admitted as 'Honorary Hog'.

I totally agree with you, but i think TW is getting good practice. He's going against 98 and 99, which should help him against Ware, Tuck and Cole.

Great post, and I hope you get the chance to see "your" Redskins win it all.

I'm looking at it from the other end -- I was 12 when the 'Skins won their first Super Bowl, and that team, and all the Gibbs teams in the '80s will always be "my" 'Skins.

I hope we both see a return to glory soon, if only so that I can be one of those old guys sitting around saying "yeah, these guys are good, but back when I was a kid..." LOL

And, for the record, I'm about to have my fill of Sonny Boy Shanahan. KYLE, as it were... My Son.

He better be the Genius they claim, because bringing in Rex Grossman really really REALLY hurt his credibility, in my book. I would have been happier if he'd brought in Jeff George.

"But he understands the offense."

Well, SON, so should you. And I believe it's YOUR job to teach it, not Grossman's. I'm not buying this crap. If this bum gets under center at any point this year, I'm going to hate you. I will hate you for putting this obvious FAILURE of a QB on my @#$%&! team. This aint the Houston "We Don't Know If We Want A Team Or Not" Texans, Kyle. This is the Washington Redskins. You don't bring some guy who so obviously stinks, who nobody wants, and put him at No. 2 behind the most injury prone QB in the league. That was a dick move, man. At least JaMarcus Russell was funny to watch! Grossman's not even funny. He looks miserable playing anyway! All whiny and sneering, because he can't throw straight... You started off on the EXACT wrong foot with me, pal. And if the rest of the Skins fans don't know what I'm talking about, they soon will. And I'll make sure, absolutely SURE, they all know who is single-handedly responsible for bringing this bum here and putting him on our team and handing him the No. 2 spot.

I am really close to hating you already Kyle. Really close. If this bum takes the field, I will hate your guts forever. FOREVER!

People don't remember Russ Grimm?

No wonder they know nothing about football on here.

If you grew up watching Norv Turner, Steve Spurrier Redskin teams, how COULD you know what real football is supposed to be?

I gotta hand it to you guys, though: True Fans. To stick around through the disaster of this franchise over all the Deione Sanders, the Jeff George, the Mark Brunnell... Probably started with the Heath Shuler era, huh? Good old Henry Ellard at WR... and I DO mean OLD.

I don't know if I could have been a football fan under those circumstances. I guess, as a DMVer, you really had no choice... What are you gonna do? Watch the Wizards? The Caps?

By the way, everybody must be like 24 on here if they don't remember Russ Grimm. He played in our 1991 Super Bowl victory.

Don't remember Russ Grimm. That is !@#$ scary. Remember Manute Bol? The Bullets? Forget it. No wonder so many people know so little on here. They've never seen a winning organization from the inside out.

Hint: Great teams make great players greater.

All this Plug n Play, Fantasy Football strategy that's been going on for the past 10 years has been a joke. For the record, I think Shanahan is trying to build the right way, through character, competition, and hard work. I don't have a lot of faith that he'll have enough time.

McNabb's days are numbered. And whoever we draft next could be a bust. And the O Line will still need attention to get to a dominant caliber - which is the SUREST way to win NFL games - something ELSE you youngins probably don't know. Let me tell you: That is THE key. NOT the QB, NOT the RB, the WRs...

It's the O LINE. PERIOD.

No wonder they thought it was Campbell's fault... They never seen the Hogs. It makes sense. Bought into the hype. Got it.

stevebeagrie, right you are on Jacoby and thanks for mentioning Hanburger. He goes back to the George Allen era (before actually) but he had more Pro-Bowl appearances (9) than any other Skin. I still remember those clothesline tackles of his. Can't do that anymore but back in the day, Chris was the master. Is Pat Fischer in the HOF? If not, put his name up there with Joe and Chris. Lenny Hauss too. I'm really showing my age here.

As a 'Skins fan living in Oakland, I can tell you that Raider fan is loving having Campbell here. My brother-in-law and I went to the 'Skins/Raiders game at the Coliseum last year, and he said after the game that he wished that the Raiders could get a guy like JC instead of Russel. Wish granted.

As a lifelong Redskins fan living in Dallas, of all places, that film was absolute magic.

Running the same play AT Randy White nine straight times ... I had forgotten that. I do run into RW every now and then — next time I see him, I'm going to ask him about that.

I've watched football seriously for more than 30 years. Grimm is still the best guard I ever saw play.
