New Redskins offensive line coach Bill Callahan knows all about the vaunted Hogs of the 1980s, which means he’s aware of the tradition he’s recently inherited.

“Having coached down in Philadelphia in the mid-90s, I certainly understand the NFC East division rivalries that exist, and of course the traditions here, their influence – going back to Coach Allen, Coach Gibbs,” Callahan told Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, on “Redskins Nation.” “I used to come out to Carlisle [Penn.] in the mid-80s and watch Joe Bugel coach The Hogs. Yeah, it was great. What a great experience that was. Just watching those linemen develop. Now to be here, try to uphold that tradition. I’m really honored by that.”

Bugel spent two stints with the Redskins in his career, the first developing an offensive line that helped lead the team to two Super Bowls. Back then, the line consisted of Russ Grimm, Joe Jacoby, Mark May, Jeff Bostic and George Starke, among a few others.

Nowadays, Callahan agrees it’s not as easy to keep a core group of players together for a prolonged period of time.

“With free agency and the difficulty to hold on to your top players: that’s unique,” Callahan said. “Of course everybody needs to be paid these days. So, it’s hard to keep those five together, especially the five they had here. They were tremendous.”

Newspaper Clip From 1941 Shows How Redskins Players Ate While Training

Back in 1941, the Redskins apparently ate a lot of food during Training Camp.

In this archived San Jose Evening News article, made aware to us by Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks), then general manager Jack Espey subscribed to the theory that a “well-fed player makes a good one.”

So when the Redskins traveled to San Diego for three weeks of Training Camp, as they did from 1941-44, the city’s surrounding restaurants and grocery stores, according to the article, “rubbed their hands in glee.”

Espey believed his team, specifically the linemen, should eat as much as they wanted, which, as described in great detail, meant fueling for breakfast with “nine gallons of fruit juice, 12 quarts of cream, two crates of peaches, 15 pounds of sausage, one case of eggs, five gallons of coffee and 50 large rolls.”

Dinner, as you can imagine was the biggest meal during one late August night, which saw the 45-man roster consume 80 pounds of prime ribs of beef and 80 pounds of potatoes.

The newspaper described it as a “first-class victual stowing.”

Along with some eating habits, language has also changed drastically over the last 70 years.

Redskins’ 1983 Team Voted Best To Never Win A Super Bowl

As we mentioned on Monday, the “Talk Of Fame Sports Network” put out a poll recently asking which NFL team was the best to have never won a Super Bowl.

Redskins fans should be happy with the result.

Beating out the nearly undefeated 2007 Patriots — along with the 1990 Bills and 1969 Vikings — the 1983 Redskins, who went 14-2 during the regular season, blew away the competition, earning 59 percent of the vote, ahead of the Patriots at 23 percent.

That specific Redskins team was an offensive juggernaut. They were the first to score more than 500 points in the regular-season under legendary quarterback Joe Theismann, who earned MVP honors, and Pro Football Hall of Fame running back John Riggins turned in a career year rushing for 1,347 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Way to show your support!

You know you’ve really given it your all in the gym when you’re dripping sweat.

That’s exactly what Washington Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher did yesterday, as the 6-foot-6, 299-pound Grambling State product shot a quick Instagram video that shows without a doubt he’s putting in work.

He could have stopped minutes before, but his motivation was pretty clear.

“I can’t stop working because I know a offensive lineman out there somewhere working too..#grindneverstop,” Hatcher captioned the photo.

And after such a great workout, his last of the night, Hatcher made sure to refuel his body with healthy foods.

My lil snack after my last workout of the night well at least i think it is.. cucumber, avocado and pico de gallo.

While there was the occasional moments of doubt, Silas Redd knew exactly what he wanted to do when his college career ended — keep playing the game that he loves so much.

But with a injury sidelining him for the second half of his senior season at USC,  he understood that he needed to put in extra work before the next NFL season started if his phone was going to ring with a team on the other end.

As told to USCTrojans.com as part of their “Retro Diary” series, Redd only took a few days off at the end of the college season, instead opting to get his injuries healed up quickly and then go straight into NFL Combine training.

From early January to late February, Redd was in Florida, running through drills that would best prepare him for the combine.
