Over the coming weeks, The Redskins Blog will be providing you with a different look at the franchise’s past.

Unlike Throwback Thursday where we’ve looked at important moments on the gridiron against an upcoming opponent, this series will examine some of the lighter moments as we go through all of the photos stored at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

To kick things off is the above photo of Hall of Fame offensive lineman Russ Grimm and McGruff the Crime Dog.

A few things to think of when looking at this photo:

–First off all, why are Grimm and McGruff together?
–Why is McGruff wearing a coat? Grimm and the police officer are wearing short sleeves.
–Finally, why is Grimm’s practice jersey so small? It’s not like he grew to the size he was during his playing days overnight.

Also of note, Grimm — a 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee — played alongside Joe Jacoby for much of his career.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame tonight will announce the Class of 2015 tonight and Jacoby is one of a possible 15 men to enter this summer.
