They forged a friendship from their mutual dislike for me," he recalled. "It's true. I was not a favorite of the players or the fans because these guys were worshipped, and rightfully so, in the Washington area."

Theismann can also relate to starting at the bottom of the roster and working your way up, something many young players that star in college have to deal with on the pro level. "I started as a punt returner in the National Football League and was a third-string quarterback," Theismann remembered.

"Although he was runner-up for the Heisman trophy, awarded to the best college player in the U.S., Joe was considered too small for the NFL. The Argos, however, feel they have landed one of the great QBs of the future."

They used to have the media guide on eBay. But I guess Canuck bought it already.

I think that J.T. was also convinced that he'd be in a bad position in Miami, behind Bob Griese and Earl Morrall.

I remember reading once that the only thing sonny and billy agreed on was that they both hated Joe. lol.
theisman also kicked 1 punt for 7 yards..sonny and kilmer loved little joe:yeahright . theisman was a great quarterback though led them to a couple great super-bowl years

Re: Did Joe Theisman ever Play with the Miami Dolphins?

If you ever hear Sonny mention Theisman he often pronounces it "Theesman", which is the right way to say it. Joe changed it to rhyme with "Heisman". They gave it to Jim Plunkett anyway.

Isn't it ironic that a decade later he would lose again to Plunkett in the Super Bowl?

Horrible game, easily my worst Redskins memory growing up. I still remember Jack Squirek (sp) intercepting that pass before half time and waltzing into the end zone!

Interesting story. Where in the hell is Jack Squirek anyway.....I know he's not playing or anything, but he basically disappeared after that game.

That would be a funny ass thread, "Where is Jack Squirek?"

JACK SQUIREK, Linebacker, Raiders
Super Bowl XVIII

Theismann, an ESPN broadcaster, remembers the screen pass all too well. "I didn't want to run it," he said. "Joe (Gibbs) explained that we'd played the Raiders earlier that year and that it worked against them then, and I said, "Don't you think they know that?' And he pointed at me and said, "Run it."'

At the Raiders bench, defensive coordinator Charlie Sumner remembered how the play had burned them for 67 yards 15 weeks earlier at RFK Stadium. He called for a zone defense, inserted Squirek and told him to cover receiver Joe Washington man-to-man. "I was trying to get in the game and Charlie kept grabbing me and saying, "Make sure you don't let him get by you."'

While a player, he started a business in suburban Cleveland, cleaning carpets in office buildings. When his partner left, Pro Team Carpet Cleaning eventually became the more diversified Squirek Services.

You're the man! ....Damn...Jack Squirek...who would have "thunk" it.

What's funny is that earlier that year we beat them in a shootout at RFK. Joe Washington was badasss in that game.
