Memorable moments from a disappointing 5-11 season
 
Hi all....new member of the warpath - have surfed and viewed posts on here for over a year till I got over the inertia to finally join it. Thanks to Mattyk, JoeCrisp, and all else responsible for maintaining the site.

Since we're back on the path to the good ol days, I thought a good way to purge the nasty after taste of last year's disastrous 5-11 season would be to re-live some of the few positives from it. So feel free to contribute favorite moments from 2003. I'll start:

1. Preseason game against the Ravens: Ramsey hands off to Morton - pitchback to Ramsey who struggles to grip the ball - but when he finally does, he fires a 39 yarder over the outstreched arms of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and right into the arms of a waiting LC in the end zone. TD Washington Redskins!

This was one of the few times last year we managed to pick up a blitz with 5 offensive linemen and one RB (Morton), and still get off a successful scoring play.

Armstead's safety in the Atlanta game.

The Gardner to Candidate TD to win a game. For a second, I thought Spurrier was smart!

Welcome, Hurrykaine!

Opening game - Probably one of the most memorable of last year.

Ramsey ducks the defender ( not sure who it was ) and throws the bomb to LC. Then to top it all off J.Hall making the game winning field goal. Jetskins beat the Jets.

Lets not forget the post game interview Lisa Guerrero had with P.Ramsey when she asked him " How did it feel to play against your old teammates? "

Thanks JW..glad to be here.

yea that Gardner play was used 3 times last season - once to win the Seattle game as you pointed out, and then twice in the game against the Bears - once to Morton for a TD, and the other time Gardner threw to Hasselback for a TD that was ruled an incompletion.

Yea it sure was. Thanks for the welcome...as I said, I've been on for over a year, but just never signed up.

At the time that flea-flicker took place, I thought it was gonna be a shadow of things to come - didn't realize it'd be one of the brightest spots of the entire season for Spurrier.

Welcome Hurrykaine!

When Coles ran back and stripped the Seattle defender before he reached the endzone, causing a fumble and preventing a touchdown. That to me was the moment Coles became a true Redskin that I want here for a long time.

Thanks s.smack - yea those Jetskins came up big in that one - Coles for stripping the defender (think it was Damien Robinson) and Randy Thomas for falling on the ball in the end zone and preventing a sure TD.

Most memorable moment, hmmmmm......

I'd have to go with Ramsey's 25 yard scramble in the Jets game. It was shocking to see him rambling down the field. Seemed like the longest run from scrimmage we had all year.

I like all the plays mentioned so far plus the morton kickoff return for a td, but one of the main bright spots from last season in my mind is that the skins were the last team to beat the Patriots. I know that's kinda silly but I think thats pretty kewl.

That was the only thing that got me through the playoffs.

Selfish but true; singing the National Anthem on my first trip to Fed Ex field for the Jets-Redskins game. I can get choked up singing at home (Yes, I do)but this had been almost 20 years that I'd waited to see a home game and it was even more exciting and atmospheric than I thought it could be. My ex getting her Arrington jersey signed by LaVar was superb, her high pitch squeal was not. Meeting Brud was up there also.

The game wasn't half bad either.

Yea - I agree that was a tremendous achievement - being the last team to beat the Pats. The funny thing is, despite the fact that the Pats were the underdogs coming into that game (having lost 9 of their starters to injury), many analysts still picked them to beat the skins. That game should've been a comfortable win for the skins if the refs hadn't ruled Coles' 3rd down catch an incompletion. Instead, we had to sweat it out till the very end.
