Redskins Football - Teamwork At Its Finest

Washington Redskins Ė Teamwork At Its Finest!

Comments by a fan from Cincinnati

By brunellguy

Monday, January 9, 2006



If any team can make it to and win the Super Bowl, this Redskins team can! The Redskins are blessed with talented coaches who know how to harness the best from their players, humble players with character and determination to win as a team, dedicated fans to support the cause, and the big ďDĒ, that is Divine intervention, if all else fails.



I wonder if other Redskins fans have grown to love the Redskins for similar reasons as I have. How did a Cincinnati native and Bengalís fan like me, end up with Mark Brunell as my role model and favorite athlete of all-time? And how did the Redskins become my favorite team?



In 1995, possibly like other frustrated Cincinnati Bengals fans who had endured 5 years of a playoff drought, it only seemed natural to seek another team or sport to provide some excitement. (Little did I know, it would be another 10 years of seemingly unending seasons of disappointments before finally being able to see the ďBungelsĒ make it to the playoffs, only to get beat in the wild card game versus those darn Steelers.)



The Jacksonville Jaguars, a new expansion team at the time (1995), made some intriguing acquisitions and looked like a promising team to follow. They acquired Mark Brunell from the Packers who was playing backup quarterback to the NFL great Brett Favre. They also picked up a key lineman, Tony Boselli to give Mark pass protection. As I watched Markís on field performance and his off field presence during interviews, I was drawn to his style of play and more importantly his character. I have followed him since.



From what I know from following Mark the last 10 years, he is everything a real man should strive to be. He is a committed Christian who is public about his love for God. He is a great husband and father. He works hard within his profession, is a great leader, and gives back to his community.



My passion for Redskins football developed after Brunell was traded from Jacksonville to the Redskins in 2004. Although, I never became a Jaguars fan (something was missing), I became hooked as a Redskins fan.



If you have some appreciation for teamwork, it is easy to get hooked on this 2006 Redskins team. As Iíve intently followed the Redskins, it became apparent that these players and coaches exemplified a true team. It all starts with the head coach Joe Gibbs. Pages and pages could be filled about the success Joe Gibbs has had with his teams. In the NFL, Gibbsís teams have won 3 Super Bowl titles, and during his time away from football his NASCAR operation won 3 stock-car racing championships in just 6 seasons. But, and as Joe would tell you, his teamís success is not about him. Joe is surrounded with a dynamic coaching staff. And although Iím only in my early 30ís, Iíve never witnessed a professional football team with so many admirable players. Iíve heard Redskin player after Redskin player stand up and say, ďIt is not about me, Iím here to benefit the team.Ē Wow! Thatís refreshing to hear when soooooooo many other players today are busy blowing their own horns.



So what do you get when you get a group of skilled, hard working players that are committed to the team and have character, determination, and faith in God? You have the ability to move mountains!



Quite frankly, the Redskins will need a mountainous effort to get a win against the upcoming game against the #1 seeded Seahawks. The Redskins are coming off a 17-10 win over the Bucs in a game that required a phenomenal effort by the Skins defensive unit to save the game since their offense was stifled by the Bucs #1 rated defense. Time will tell just how far they will go, but donít count them out till the last second ticks off the clock.



I pray that the Lord continues to use this team to reach out to people during these troubling times that our country is facing. ďWith God all things are possible.Ē Mark 10:27



God bless the Redskins coaches, players, and fans!

Re: Redskins Football - Teamwork At Its Finest

Do you think Brunell can regain health in his knee enough to where he could have a big passing day?

I do. He will probably throw on second down once or twice this week, even.

Re: Redskins Football - Teamwork At Its Finest

Welcome, and nice post. It's not a coincidence that character arrived when Gibbs took over the team again. And it's also not a coincidence that with charcter players, who put team and hardwork first, we've become a legit force.
