Mikey T., one of the original representatives from The Hogettes, a devoted and decorated fan base of the Redskins that raises money for charity, stopped by "Redskins Nation" recently with a purpose.

Joe Jacoby, the legendary offensive lineman that helped build "The Hogs" in the 1980s, has yet to be elected into the Hall of Fame. The Hogettes want to change that.

"There are so many Hall of Famers who think Joe Jacoby is already in there," Mikey said. "So our mission is to help any way we can to get Joe enshrined in the Pro Football Hall Of Fame."

The group has planned to create a list of 66 reasons why Jacoby should be elected and plans to spread the information to as many people as possible, most notably Hall voters.

"It's a mystery to me," Mikey said when asked why Jacoby isn't already in Canton. "He's a big guy, he's the proto type of the big, fast, smart, left tackle,. All the big left tackles that have gotten in were based on him and how he played. And he had the versatility to be the starting right tackle in the [team's] fourth Super Bowl."
