Perhaps Hog for life Joe Jacoby was just tired when he called into 106.7 The Fan’s Grant and Danny on Tuesday, but he certainly sounded like a guy completely, and utterly dejected, after failing to be voted into the NFL Hall of Fame for the umpteenth consecutive year.
Joe Jacoby, the standout left tackle of the Hogs during the Redskins’ glory days in the 1980s, will learn Thursday night whether he will finally become a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the first time.
On this date twenty-five years ago, the Washington Redskins won their second Super Bowl when the Doug Williams-led offense trounced the Denver Broncos 42-10. He told Holden and Danny the memories are getting more difficult to recall, but that doesn’t make them any less special.
Joe Jacoby, a former Washington Redskins All-Pro left tackle and member of the famed Hogs, was disappointed but not surprised he was not a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2013.
It’s no surprise the Redskins current offensive line is not The Hogs of a fading generation, but with Jammal Brown still on the PUP list and Kory Lichtensteiger having gone under the knife just 6 full weeks away from the team’s opener against the Saints, rookie QB Robert Griffin is left wondering if he’ll even have offensive starters in front of him.
