To think,

To think, I remember watching Herb Mul-Key from NONE University, Moses Denson from the Canadian FB league, and Ken Barefoot from here in Chesapeake Va!

Herb Mul-Key, wow, I remember him. He was a great kick return man.
Mike Nelms and Brain Mitchell continued the tradition of great Redskins return men and great special teams play. We seemed to lose that tradition after Gibbs left in 1993.
Herb Mul-Key's early 70's team is when I became a Redskins fan as a small kid...or at least my earliest memories of being a Redskins fan.
I think that is why I am partial to that years uniforms and helmet. Even though most fans find the yellow pants the most unattractive of all, I like them.
Charlie Haraway, Jerry Smith, Pat Fischer, Larry Brown, Sonny and Billy, Diron Talbert...etc. Man, that team was good and had a lot of characters on it.

none of those names mean anything to me, except Mitchell of course. Of course I was born in 82 so that would explain it.

are any skins number officially retired?

Only one number is officially retired... Sammy Baugh's #33. There was talk last year that there will probably be one more, maybe this season. Mr. Green's #28.

DefenseWins, WOW, I had forgotten all about Mul-Key. Yeah, he was real good on the returns for a while. I guess Mitchell has to be considered the greatest of our kick returners, but Nelms was definitely my favorite. Amazing guy. Just refused to fair catch, period. And always seemed to hold onto the ball and make something happen.

Hogskin, you're right about Nelms. I don't think Nelms ever made a fair catch in his entire career. I wish that rule was abolished altogether. No fair catches, I say!

So here's my question for you. Mitchell has all these return records and only Payton and Jerry Rice have more total yards in their NFL careers, so is Mitchell a Hall-of-Famer? Is he first ballot? Anyone can jump in and answer this

Is Brian Mitchell a Hall of Famer?

That's a tough one. As a special teams ace he's pretty much done it all, I would think that eventually he would have to get in. First ballot..... probably not.

Man, I'm away from the computer for a few hours, and y'all come up with a 19 page thread!

I was trying to remember the names and numbers of the original Hogs. Anyone?

(and if we ever get custom avatars, save me one of Big Route 66, Joe Jacoby.)

Original Hogs were C Jeff Bostic #53, G Russ Grimm #68, G Mark May #73, T Joe Jacoby #66, T George Starke #74, and TE Doc Walker #88.

Hmmmm... Or was Don Warren the Hog?

Deserves and if he'll actually go first ballot are two different things.
