Talking Re: Highlights from Joe Gibbs first win


I lived in Chicago then, and scalped a ticket to Soldier Field to watch it. I had a good friend there. We would give each other s--- depending on how the Bears and Redskins did week to week. The season before, the Skins lost to the Bears in Chicago, 35-21. Went to that game, too, thinking that the problem was at quarterback. Theisman played well, I thought. However, the Redskins did not look good.

In the 1981 game, no one knew who Joe Gibbs was. The Bears checked this game as a "win" from the beginning of the season. So they were shocked not only at the loss, but at how they lost. They griped about it until the end of the season. I got to feed my buddy all the crap he gave me a year earlier.

That win was the start of something big, although no one knew it that day. Gibbs and the Redskins won 29 of their next 35 reg season games and went to SB 17 & 18. We don't talk about SB 18 much, but I remember that Chicago game.

Thanks for the memories.

great movie

This is why you need Mentos. To justify your questionable problem solving skills.


Awesome isn't it.

Great Defense back then. The 2nd half of the doubleheader 49ers vs Boys sounds like it would have been a good game.
