  1. My latest book hits shelves on April 1st

    Day by day, it's getting closer to the release of my second novel, A Climbing Stock. https://www.amazon.com/Climbing-Stock-Andrew-Hiller-ebook/dp/B01N5US02T/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1489488150&sr=1-1&keywords=a+climbing+stock A Climbing Stock is a fractured fairy tale that tells...
  2. An alternate POV: The Redskins are a Model of Stability

    The theme of the weekend and perhaps this entire off season has been one of instability and dysfunction and certainly arguments can be made in that direction, but I want to point our attention to something a bit different. The Redskins are a model of stability. You laugh. I can hear you...
  3. Jay Gruden Nets 2 year Contract Extention

    Congrats to Jay. Now, it becomes much more important and less important to sign Kirk simultaneously. More important because Kirk's a key to driving Jay's system. Less important, because if they do lose Kirk, Pierre, and Desean they are all but starting over on offense and he has more than one...
  4. Writing in Reverse

    If you close your eyes, you can feel the stadium bouncing and a certain roar eminating not from the mouth, but from the heart and perhaps even the soul... "We want Dallas" You can see a three hundred pound Darryl Grant high stepping it to the endzone, the swift breeze of Darrell Green's wake...
  5. The Value of Consistency

    This is year four. Four years of the same basic principles of offense and defense. A number of players who have been working with these systems and with these coaches for four years. By the way, the average lifespan of an NFL player 3 years. Players should know what the coaches want...
  6. Which safety emerges

    Which safety emerges as a player for the Redskins this year... Will it be Merriweather coming back from injury who shows that game and a half was not a mirage, but the tip of the iceberg? Pugh who coaches seem to like and talk about a good bit. Rambo who fell all the way to the 6th round and...
  7. A 40 Year-Old Virgin No More

    Okay, with more than 40 years under my belt it's time to lose my playoff virginity. I took a deep breath and paid a slightly ridiculous amount for the opportunity to scream myself hoarse, high five strangers and friends, and tailgate with the famous and infamous in the Green Lot where ESers...
  8. Forging Steel

    How do you take a young team and make them battle tested in a hurry. Play seven playoff games in a row. Tell them they have to focus and if they lose a single one of them they are done. Take their grit, determination, and pride and tell them at 3-6 that it's time to evaluate because you don't...
  9. It is not about RGIII

    The Redskins proved themselves a team against Cleveland and again last week versus the Eagles. This game is not about RGIII, but about the Redskins and to a greater extent about us. The will to win. You can feel that on the field. Where past teams took a shot to the chin and crumpled this...
  10. The Second Second Go

    I think it's a fair question this year and even next year... How do defenses adapt to the Redskins the second time around or after getting a year to think and watch film of it? We already know one answer... San Francisco said, we can't beat that we better join it. Still, for one season the...
  11. Defeating Complacency and making a team statement

    After 4 in a row and beating playoff teams... this team could have been due for a letdown facing the lowly Browns. Yes, we've been in playoff mode since the bye, but this team historically gets full of itself and it is hard to keep up that level of focus for a month. Enter Kirk Cousins... one...
  12. Five in a row or we don't go meets let's get seven and arrive in heaven

    The current streak has to remind us all about that march with Gibbs a few years ago when the Redskins suddenly refused to lose and fought tooth and nails. CP was killing it. The defense was ferocious and the passing game did enough to keep teams honest. We strung out five games and then popped a...
  13. Flabbergasted, but excited... Hail to the Slobberknockers!

    The D stunk and couldn't tackle, left receivers wide open, we fumbled in scoring territory, we dropped passes, and even RGIII was good, but mortal. Yet we won! The D somehow held the Giants to 16 points. Timely first downs and a Riggo Drill to kill the last 4 minutes of the game. How sweet...
  14. It's getting fun to be a fan again

    Every season has its hills and valleys. The Saints' game was a huge surprise. Against a team we thought had Superbowl ability we not only competed, but dominated. Sure, the defense was being torn apart, but that was against Drew Brees and he does it to everyone. The Vikings... here's the...
  15. We beat a rookie quarterback?!?

    We beat a rookie qb? :thud: Not sure when the last time we made a rookie qb not look like a first ballot hall of famer was, but it was amazing to see. The qb really fell apart in the second half and the defense kept him off balance despite not really pressuring him. Meanwhile our qb...
  16. A time of riches

    There was once a group of travelers who wandered homeless for generations. These people were proud and in their hearts remembered dynasties led by men named Gibbs, Allen, or Unseld and Robinson. Over the years their flock dwindled. Many became bitter and lost hope. Others drank sand pretending...
  17. Let's go back to the 4-3 next year

    Orakpo still has trouble in space. Fletcher needs to be replaced. I could see a line of Caricker, Bowen, Cofield and Orakpo, being a pretty good D line. Kerrigan could be a force still at linebacker. Jenkins would make a fine tackle if he can progress. Perry or Alexander move inside...
  18. Refs add new trick to their arsenal

    We've gotten used to the phantom penalties. We've gotten three so far by the half against Carolina. We're used to the non-calls. Well, the refs have to add something so we know they're trying. Introducing... the phantom whistle. Yes, they can blow the play dead and then when the defense...
  19. Shhh... I like this team

    Shh... I like this team I like its speed, its motor, I like the character of the guys who we've picked or recruited. I like the effort and hustle. I like the potential of RGIII and the dedication and fire of London Fletcher. I like the underdog stories of 4 foot one kick returners and guys...
  20. third and forever... deja vu

    I know it's pre-season, but we have a history of allowing these. Tonight, we allowed two more third and forevers to be successful. One we were bailed out on because of a recovered fumble, but I'm extremely worried when I see a team not learn its lessons. I don't think I've ever seen a team...
