Anybody Remember Mike Nelms?
 
I guess I was just thinking about B.Mitch made me think about Nelms. He was very quietly one of the greatest Redskins in my opinion.

Guy was tough as nails!

i remember Mike Nelms as being the first great return man the skins had. i think he was a defensive back, but don't remember him doing anything but returning kicks. anyone remember Herb Mul-key? how about Eddie Brown? the skins have had some good return men over the years

Nelms was the best/toughest returner we have ever had. He did not have the luxury of playing on the talented teams that B Mitch played on. Nelms played on some mediocre redskin teams. He was the only pro bowl player a few years.
Nelms hardly ever fair caught a punt. He would refused
During Nelms prime, I remember teams punting out of bounds to avoid giving him the ball. He was instant offense.
Nelms was such a vicious hitter on special teams that the redskins used him on goal line Defense as a safety. He would hit so hard that the coaches took him off defense after he injured his shoulder. But while he played on D he was a feared player a la Sean Taylor.

Nelms was a cross between B.Mitch and Ade Jimoh.

Found this interesting:

Nelms is a three time Pro Bowler in 1980, 1981 and 1982. He led the NFL in yards per kickoff return twice (1981, 1982) and was the Redskins starting punt returner in Super Bowl XVII. In Super Bowl XVII, he returned 6 punts for 52 yards, both Super Bowl records, along with 2 kickoff returns for 44 yards.

GREAT Redskin!! #21. Made the All-Madden team in the early days. Nelms was an amazing return man and Wayne Seviere (sp?) used to figure out new ways of getting him the ball on special teams plays.

If I remember correctly, Nelms never had a fair catch

Now Dblanch66, there's a name - Wayne Sevier (sp). You talk about a special teams coach! Guys would run through a wall for that coach!

The good old days, huh?

Wasn't he the guy who had a hot dog stand just down the street from the White House. Some of the past Presidents would have the secret service sneak down and get them a few dogs when the first lady wasn't watching.

I believe and I'm stretching the brain cells on this...I think it was that he went an entire season without a fair catch.
